We absolutely loved our stay! The house is beautiful and very spacious. The location is perfect, lovely area, and great views. There are parks on the way to the house and a cute town near by. The house is very comfortable and Julia was a great help with such short notice on my part! She was extremely quick to respond and very helpful! If I rent again, I will absolutely rent from Julia!
Thank you so much for your review. You are wonderful guests and very responsible young people from USAFA!

I rented the Pikes Peak Mountain Retreat for my wife and I, our two daughters and their families. It exceeded our expectations in every way. It is in a remote and peaceful setting with breathtaking scenery, yet less than an hour's drive to the attractions around Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs. My three grandsons, ages 3, 6 and 13 especially enjoyed the evening walks down to bridge across the wetlands to watch the beavers swimming in and around their lodge and dam. The home is clean, comfortable and well furnished with everything you need for a week's stay. There is enough space that we could all have our privacy when we needed it and still be together for meals and activities. The owner, Julia was very helpful and quick to respond to all questions and other communications. I can highly recommend this vacation home with a 5 star rating and would love to come back again for another stay.
