“The Perfect Fall retreat!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My friends and I stayed here from Oct 10-14 for our annual girls get away. I did the booking so I chose the kind of house I like. I'm just saying, I could move here! I loved the contemporary feel from the windows to the stainless countertops. That being said, 2 of the friends in our group of 5 were uneasy with the lack of window coverings in the great room. By the end of our stay they were used to it. I'm writing the review, so I can say I loved the windows! The kitchen was pretty well stocked. We were impressed that there was even a mixer! The only think missing from our list was a whisk. The beds were very comfy and the linens, towels, etc., were ample and nice quality. We love to cook, so we were in the kitchen a lot. The morning we were leaving there were 4 deer crossing the stream in back. The stream is very cool....literally right under the deck! The fall colors were beautiful! Our two nit-picky things (beside the whisk) were that there was no firewood for the fireplaces and that we couldn't get any of our cars into the garage (the door doesn't raise high enough for an SUV). But that is it! We had a great time going to the nearby Mexican Restaurant, The Cog Railway up to Pikes Peak, Garden of The Gods, The Broadmoor for cocktails and a nice 2 mile walk through the neighborhood (amazing views!). We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect! I would recommend this house to couples and groups of friends. Also, I think it would be a great house for commissioning for USAFA if the distance is okay. We stayed in a similar house for USNA commissioning in Annapolis, MD a few years ago.

“Gorgeous, wonderful property! We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012 for a stay in July 2011

We planned a family vacation to Colorado Springs and had 10 people to house, with three of them under 7 years old. We decided to splurge because we were really excited about seeing the photographs of this property online, and this house did not disappoint! Even with such a large party this house is so spacious that we all had plenty of room to spread out in. The kids really loved the stream and several times deer walked around the property. The owners do a fantastic job of upkeep with the place and we enjoyed the welcoming touches such as the snack bucket & water we found in the kitchen. Plenty of cooking utensils so we could prepare our own meals. All the appliances worked great.

The main source of discomfort while we were there was strictly due to Mother Nature; Colorado Springs was having a heat wave the first few days of our stay and temps were in the 90s, and we discovered quickly that the house did not have air conditioning! There are no curtains on the huge windows (featured in the main photo above) so the main living room was somewhat like a greenhouse in the hot summer sun. However, at night things cooled off nicely and there were adequate ceiling fans to keep us comfortable. After the first two days the weather cooled off and we were completely comfortable.

We loved this house and may travel back to it someday if we want to spend another vacation in Colorado Springs. If you know your dates book early - this property's calendar fills up fast!
