About the Owner

Hi. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs and have a true love of the mountainous lifestyle and beauty. Most of my family lives here, so I grew up with tons of aunts, uncles and cousins. I met my husband while attending Colorado College and we now have one son and three grandchildren living here. It's not only a splendid place to live but is on the top of many Americans' touring list. Even as Colorado natives, we never run out of things to do. We love to hike, bike, ski, river raft, attend camps and colleges and shop at the local stores in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City.

Comfortable home in a nice and quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this house-it is very comfortably furnished and the owner was quick to attend to our needs. She went the extra mile by providing extras for our baby, including a stroller, pack 'n play and highchair, which meant I could travel lighter. We loved how close we were to several parks. It was a little bit of a drive from my work, but totally worth it for the comfort of my family. My kids loved this house and we would definitely be back if the opportunity arose.

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful house during USAFA Parent's Weekend!
It’s in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, but very close to the Academy and many other places.
The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, and to be able to enjoy the beautiful view while cooking on the grille on the back deck was an extra plus.
Darlina, the owner was very pleasant and accommodating whenever we had questions.
All in all a great place to stay, I'd recommend it highly and if we go again would stay in the same house.

We loved this comfortable well appointed home. It was perfect for our numerous trips to the U.S.A.F. Academy. We could watch the "Thunderbirds" practice from the deck.

Owner's Response: Hi Stacey,

Thanks so much for choosing our home. I too love to watch the Thunderbirds practice and am happy that the view from our home met your needs.



From the Owner

Opened in May 2014. We searched all over the central front range for the best location to put our vacation home and found it in Monument. What's so special about Monument? It's quiet. The views are incredible. There is easy access to restaurants, big box stores and local coffee shops. Plus the small historic town has the nicest people!

Opened in May 2014! Perfectly situated, our vacation home rests atop a hill on the border of Colorado Springs and Monument. You'll love the view of the front range, including Pikes Peak and the Air Force Academy. Also, being centered along the front range between Colorado Springs and Denver offers easy access to local attractions, including Pikes Peak, US Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, The Iron Springs Chateau Melodrama, Olympic Training Center, Cave of the Winds, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo/Will Rogers Shrine, Old Colorado City, The Broadmoor, North Pole Amusement Park, Seven Falls, Historic Monument Downtown, and Fox Run Regional Park. Love shopping? A brand new 120,000 square foot Bass Pro Shop is now open and the Factory Outlet at Castle Rock is a quick and beautiful 28 minute drive. Denver and all of its attractions are only 45 minutes away.

From the Owner

Growing up with a view of Pikes Peak made me think that every kid had a mountain in his/her backyard. After living many years in my young adulthood in other states, I began to appreciate how much beauty, spiritual calm and fun awaited me in my home town. When I moved back, I took advantage of the things I had taken for granted and fell in love with Colorado. My husband is originally from Wisconsin and he loves the milder Colorado winters. The springtime is sweet with fragrant flowers. Summers are dry (except for the occaisional July downpour that will soak you wet and be gone in 20 minutes) and cool at night. Autumn makes Colorado colorful. Our Colorado vacation home shows off all these attributes.
