Spacious & comfortable 2-bedroom "Peak View Country Suburbia" for up to 4 guests with private bathroom, kitchenette, washer/dryer. Beautiful views & private entrance on 2 rural yet modern beautiful acres in NE Colorado Springs with proximity to everything convenient.
You're going to be staying in the open, sunny basement of a warm, friendly home. This is a recently finished area in half of our basement, designed specifically for travelers. There is a private outdoor patio tucked in a comfortable location where you may swing or enjoy your morning coffee or the quiet sounds of our cool country nights. We are adding new amenities and conveniences as we go, so check back frequently to see what we've done.
Outside your bedrooms is a washer and dryer available to clean traveling clothes.
Puzzles and games are waiting to be used in the linen closet outside your room.
In case you visit in the Spring or Fall, your bedrooms have their own heater and thermostat to keep you cozy for the cooler indoor transition seasons between Winter full-house heat in to Summer's perfect indoor temperatures.
You will have a nice bathroom down the hall. It's got a full shower, toilet, and sink. Soft, comfy bath towels await you.
A kitchenette completes your indoor amenities. You'll have exclusive access to a refrigerator, microwave.
A refrigerator (with a small freezer), microwave, coffee maker, and toaster are supplied for your use.
This is a basement, but it's a walk-out basement with large, open south and west facing windows, so you don't really feel like you're in a basement.
You may park one vehicle per bedroom on the property.
Your bedroom, bathroom, washer/dryer, and kitchenette is in half of my basement. The other half is an open area, with a sofa and treadmill for your use.
You will have a private locked entrance to the basement, as well as private locked bedrooms.
Outside the private entrance is a covered patio area with a comfortable porch swing, which is absolutely heavenly to enjoy here on the property. You can swing, drink your coffee, and absorb the beauty of the Colorado Springs front mountain range.
When you're done enjoying the swing, walk over to the neighborhood hiking trail and stroll through the open country neighborhood while you take in the vast open views.
Wi-Fi is available for your use.
My family lives in the house upstairs. I am available to answer questions about Colorado and assist you with planning your trip, finding nice restaurants, and the best activities and attractions for your interests.
*** PLEASE READ: I MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE TO MEET YOU IN PERSON ***
My goal is to provide a clean, comfortable, and secure lodging option for my guests at the most reasonable rates. Part of my hosting philosophy is giving my guests as much privacy as possible, so that you may enjoy your stay without interruptions from or obligations to me. I generally communicate with my guests via AirBnB messaging or via text. Occasionally I have opportunity to actually meet my guests in person, but due to my extremely busy schedule, this is not always possible. Thank you for your understanding ahead of time.
The refrigerator, freezer, and microwave/speedcooker are available to prepare convenient meals on your own.
Two of my children are exceptional pianists. You might hear them practicing occasionally on the piano upstairs, but they are conscientious not to play when guests might be sleeping.
We live on well and septic. I provide bottled water for your drinking, as some people do not like the taste of well water. Since we have a septic tank that will not function well otherwise, please plan on reasonably using the water and disposing of personal hygiene items in the covered trash cans only.

Mother and 4 fabulous children. I consider myself conscientious, clean, and hospitable both as a host and as a guest.
I've lived in Colorado for 35 years, I went to secondary school and college here. I can help you plan your activities here if you need assistance. I can share with you with excellent day trip ideas and activities for all ages.
I love traveling with my kids, educating my kids, reading, current events, good movies, great music, and precious friends. Chocolate is the best food on the planet. I enjoy meeting new people and seeing the world.
I make the best homemade wheat bread in the area. If I happen to make some when you're here, I'll share some with you.
