GREETINGS! You are our VIP's! We offer an affordable, practical way for you to have a comfortable night's sleep so you can enjoy our community to its fullest, or stay at home and relax! We offer the finest views in town, off of our decks, just minutes from the luxurious Broadmoor Hotel, State Park, Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, breweries, Manitou Springs, etc.!! Don't worry, there are no treacherous roads you need to maneuver. Yes, it's perfect for you.
We own comfortable home, right in the middle of paradise. We are in the BEAUTIFUL and SAFE Broadmoor Bluffs and also clean and comfy. We have two large decks that allow you to see almost a 360 degree view of Colorado Springs, and even the Garden of the Gods which is literally 9.9 miles away. Many places you may want to see are close enough to walk to, or ride a bike. Those who are vacationing or here on business will enjoy the ability to get where you want to be quickly. There is a kitchen you can use, and we provide a continental breakfast. We have covered parking for your car and so many extras! We do have a small pull out mattress if you want to share your room with a child or friend. We just invested in a brand new queen mattress and box spring, and an antique bed frame. We have a five inch cushion that someone may sleep on if you need room for three people. Guests say it's very comfortable. We could provide a little overflow space if needed and with enough notice. We have two flat screen TVs you can watch- and working on getting one in your private bedroom running w cable as well.
Wildlife abounds here. Last night my daughter saw a large black bear saunter across our driveway. Don't be afraid- they don't want to interact with people. If you are lucky you will see one while you are here. (But do NOT leave food in your car.)
Mountain Lions live here too. I've never seen one, but I've heard one 'scream/roar". They say mountain lions see us 20 x more than we see them. If you DO see one, I suggest you be very afraid and try not to get close to it.
Hummingbirds frequent our deck in the spring and summer times, there are deer that walk through our acre out back, coyote, and fox. I've seen garter snakes but no rattlers, and I am in my yard a lot.
If you listen carefully you will hear the bugle calls from Fort Carson, the Mountain Post, at 6:30 AM and 10:00 PM.

Our house is your house. Welcome to your home away from home. You will have access to everything you need! You have your private room and bath, common areas to include a living room, kitchen, dining room, breakfast room, and of course the amazing decks. The downstairs is currently unavailable, but if you have a large number of people we may be able to accommodate you with enough notice. You will want to spend time on our decks with the magnificent views. If you have a specific question let me know! We will strive to make you happy. We are serious about your comfort and return visits!
Different people have different ideas about the perfect place to stay, so we allow you to come and go at your leisure, join us for conversation, or take the time to be in your own space. We are a safe place to land after a long day sight-seeing, or business meetings. Like good neighbors, will be here for you to the degree you choose. As a former Pikes Peak Ranger, I can fill you in on the best of the Springs, and have updates brochures and magazines that tell you about this city we love very much.
My hubby and I are very active people! We may or may not be home when you contact us, but we keep the space ready for you to walk in at a moment's notice. We have a security system set up that we can adjust remotely. We are not smokers of anything and prefer our guests not smoke indoors. (Yes, Marijuana is legal in Colorado, and while we do not partake, we are okay if you choose to, as long as you understand CO wildfires are a serious threat and we ask you to be responsible with your smoking). We are in the beginnings of having an urban farm and we have bees on our lower acreage. If you need a place to store your motor home (for those cases) we have a secure yard off premises. We have a little, extremely gentle but shy, American Eskimo rescue dog and a cat named "My Little Pony", who is sophisticated enough to go outdoors to potty( no litter box.) Martin is from South Africa but became a US citizen. He can speak Afrikaans. Our lower level, with a kitchen, sun room, and up to three bedrooms can be made available to larger parties for an adjusted price, if given enough notice.
Oh, boy, the section about rules... I guess I'd rather say- here's a heads up...
We are a flag lot, so that means our home is set back from the street a bit. Look for the mailbox with wheels, like a car. (My husband races cars.)
If we are not available for you when you arrive you will have your own access code sent to you to open the door. Make yourself at home.
We have a cat, "Pony" who will most likely welcome you. Don't allow Pony into your bedroom. We like to keep that room completely fur free.
Go out on the decks and look around, but take your phone with you, and prop the door open. Once, my hubby went out on the deck and the door blew shut, triggered the lock and he was locked out- 50 feet above ground level.... not fun. It's only happened once, but that was enough.
The frig has cold, filtered water and ice. Help yourself to drinks in either of our refrigerators.
Have immediate questions? (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). (: text me. I am the queen of flexibility, especially if you are as well.
We trust you in our home. You are our guests.
You are our VIPs! Come share a glass of wine or specialty teas (on us) as we look over the most beautiful views in the city. Enjoy your home away from home so much you will want to stay longer and come back often! We WANT TO SPOIL you with extras! We are friendly, community minded folks who love the 'Springs. You will love our location! We are five minutes from the Broadmoor Hotel, The World Arena, Seven Falls, and NORAD. We have incredible views. We sit on the side of beautiful Cheyenne Mountain. We see deer from our deck almost every evening. We want our home be your favorite place stay so we will look to your comfort! And, it is magnificent all year long.
We pack in the extras! We offer you the privacy you desire, or friendly conversation. We have a cat "My Little Pony" and a rescue dog named "O2", who is a shy American Eskimo breed. You will have a code to enter your vacation home, your own private bath, internet, large flat-screen TV, snacks, and the best information possible from a former Pikes Peak Ranger- that's me! (:
We took a short sabbatical from Airbnb to remodel our decks and bathroom, to offer guests a fabulous experience. There was a glitch in blocking days, I can assure you we've never turned anyone away. We are remedying that one negative comment as you read.
Hubby and I still work outside of the home, periodically, so you will have lots of time for privacy.
We welcome diversity! Blessings to all.
We want you to choose us! You won't regret it, I promise.
Sincerely, Chelley ('Shelly" and Martin)
