vacation rental description

Bring the whole gang,(up to 24 people) and cook, eat, sleep and play under one roof in this 7800 sq ft Colorado Style Retreat/Family Reunion Home. Perched on the ridge of a 40 acre secluded estate, this mini ranch is conveniently located only 12 minutes from the Air force Academy, 15 minutes from Colorado Springs, 6 minutes from Monument and services, 20 minutes from Castle Rock, and 35 minutes from South Denver. The 360 degree view offers beautiful sunrises, sunsets and miles of ever changing, unobstructed mountain vistas.

The House on Bluebird Ridge accommodates up to 24 people, and offers you the opportunity to host intimate special gatherings such as weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate retreats, family reunion functions and barbecues for up to 50 people.

You won’t have to leave Bluebird Ridge to enjoy Colorado’s beauty. Although, we highly recommend you do check out all the fun things to see and do nearby; hiking, trail running, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, tennis, golf, and swimming. You will also want to pull yourself from the ranch and take in some mountain adventures and touristy stuff; US Air Force Academy, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Olympic Training Center, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Cripple Creek Casino Town, Manitou and Old Colorado City shopping.

For added fun, treat your kids to a real Colorado Adventure; pack and pitch a tent on the property and spend a magical Colorado night around the campfire before you finish the cool night off with a soak in the hot tub.

Dogs: Dogs are not allowed in the house and there is no fenced in area for dogs outside.

If you have a pet that must travel with you, we can recommend an exceptional, nearby Boarding facility that offers your dog great fun at their 5 acre Dog Park like facility. Your dog deserves a vacation too.

Cat & Dog: ALERGY WARNING…..There is a resident ranch cat on the property at times. He mostly stays outside, but does sneak in from time to time to cuddle. His name is Oscar and he can stay for your enjoyment, or if there is an allergy issue, you can request he be removed from the premises during your stay. There is also a Golden Retriever named Sawyer that has access to the mudroom in the house throughout the year, but will not be on the premises during your stay. (If a serious cat or dog allergy exists, we do not recommend you stay in the house.)

traveler reviews for this monument house rental

Memories were made!

Review submitted: July 28, 2014   Date of arrival: June 30, 2014

We recently had the pleasure of staying in this magnificent home. The description of it does not do it justice.
We had my mother's 80th birthday celebration and a July 4th reunion here. The home had everything we needed and then some. From batteries for a child's game to enough tableware for this huge crew. Forgot to bring a certain spice for a recipe? No worry, the spice cupboard was filled to the max.
Their wonderful friends and neighbors made sure the hot tub was clean and working properly. The yard and maintence man was there instantly to mow abit of grass for parking and to clean the horseshoe pits for us.
Televisions and WiFi was remarkable in all parts of the house. The lower level was well equipped for everything the kids needed. Loved the big childrens room with 4 sets of bunkbeds.
The views from the deck were outstanding. My husband and I would get up before everyone else and sit and have a cup of coffee and do our morning devotinal on the deck where the views were outstanding.
Yes, it was abit hard to find, but most of us all have GPS systems on our phone or in the car. We discovered that if you followed the route from the freeway, the navagational system worked everytime.
Activities in the area that were enjoyed by family members were Garden of the Gods, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (5 star rating for this), Pikes Peak, 4-wheeling (although you do have to trailer them for the trails - but you have many choices), restuarants of all likes, etc. No one ever got bored.
We thank the owners for opening their beautiful home to us. Thank you for helping to make the reunion and birthday get-together a success! Would highly recommend this home no matter what your reasons for being in the area. It was wonderful. We will be back!
And just a little side note. The music room was absolutely outstanding! I could have spent the entire time in that room alone!

Home away from home

Review submitted: June 4, 2014   Date of arrival: May 25, 2014

Great person to rent from, gorgeous view & property, great space for staying in. Had enough for all 25 of our family members for the week, a laundry room & an amazing kitchen. How to take care of things was well laid out, easy to understand and easy to do. Home was clean & comfortable. It was an amazing stay, I slept great & felt like home for the week.
