My friends and I were blown away by this fantastic property. Yet that was overshadowed by the kindness and generosity of our host family! They were incredibly respectful, responsive, helpful and gracious. Memories made forever. KB, Dallas TX”

My husband and I loved this week getaway because we loved being away from the city, noise and crowds. This large and luxurious home had everything we needed and more! The hosts were so accommodating and helpful which made our stay stress free and very pleasant! We loved the spaciousness and the open space for cooking, relaxing and entertaining with family. The downstairs game area was a bonus and we thoroughly enjoyed playing ping pong, darts, air hockey and more. We loved the jacuzzi outside with the sound of the waterfall feature and were able to see deer in the backyard! The beds were very comfortable which is super important to me and my husband. We also loved the living room because the couches were so comfortable and there is so much space for everyone! It is also located in such a beautiful setting with nature, the lake, horses in the pasture & greenery all around! We felt very safe due to the private gate at entrance & location. We were also able to do a lot of fun activities such as hiking Spruce Mountain Loop which is beautiful and close by! We visited Manitou Springs town & Garden of the Gods which is not that far away! Beautiful home, comfortably and homey and kind and wonderful hosts!! ”
