This gorgeous, custom home offers truly one of the best views in Colorado Springs from the comfort of a well-designed, contemporary space. Feel a world apart, immersed in nature, yet just a mile from the famous, world-renowned Broadmoor and only 10 minutes from downtown. This home is an architectural masterpiece with seamless, clean lines in the main living space--this house's design merges interior with surrounding nature.
This home is an architectural masterpiece with an innovative interior design that utilizes floor to ceiling glass and a 10’ by 20’ folding door opening for truly indoor/outdoor living. You will not see a house like this anywhere else in Colorado Springs. Unrestricted, dramatic views, and all of this beautiful living space within thousands of acres of hiking in open space literally right out the back door.
Relax in front of the grand fireplace in the spacious, open living room. Gather with those you love around the large dining table or whip up a delicious meal in this and spacious kitchen. Feeling a bit like escaping? Retire to one of the many thoughtfully designed and more secluded spaces in the home. Climb up to the lofted reading nook or sneak off to the deluxe master suite.
The master suite is truly its own getaway with Colorado aspens, reclaimed fir beams and vintage fixtures adorning a relaxing, beautiful space. Use the en suite espresso bar to make yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy it in front of your private, second fireplace. Soak in the Japanese-style soaking tub in the attached bathroom or step outside through your private sliding glass doors and enjoy the incredible Cheyenne Canyon beauty from your 6 person hot tub.
For the little ones, a kids' suite, designed entirely with them in mind: lofted beds to sleep 5, kid lounging and TV area, books, games and their own bath and shower.
This house offers the best of Colorado living. Enjoy the absolutely incredible views from the 1200sqft wrap around deck with outdoor kitchen and grill, and if you want to get out into the nature that surrounds you, hike on the trails leading from the back door, or go down the hill about a half mile to Stratton Open Space and hike or mountain bike that extensive trail system. Whatever you chose to do, this house delivers.
You will have access to the entire home and the grounds around it, as well as access to thousands of acres of public land.
NOTE: Early check-in or late check-out are only possible if the booking calendar allows (we have many back-to-back bookings) so must be approved on a case-by-case basis. If they are possible, there is a $100 fee for either checking in earlier or checking out later.
Meet the owners!
As the homeowners, Ryan and Elisha Whitten, of The Cañon Retreat Vacation Home, we are excited to share the comforts of our home with you. As a family of five with 3 creative and energetic children, we enjoy exploring the world and doing so by bicycle! 2008 was the first year we decided to explore as a family through Asia for 6 months, from Singapore to China. This summer we are preparing to cycle from Morocco to Ireland with all 3 kids! Ryan was raised by a master carpenter and now is a master in carpentry himself. You can see his fine work throughout our entire home, from the large dinning wood table, to wood counter tops ....even the master bed frame was designed and built specifically for this Cañon Retreat!
We look forward to speaking with you and having you as a guest! When you contact us, you may hear from Ryan or Elisha directly or from Tom and Amy Roemer, the co-hosts.

Hello! We are Ryan and Elisha, Home owners of The Cañon Retreat. We are passionate in exploring this beautiful planet we call home.
As we travel abroad, from Asia to Ireland to Italy and more ... we love to stay in airbnb homes as a way to experience the comforts of home while traveling. It can also be an exciting way to see new places you wouldn't otherwise see off the beaten path. Because of this passion, we also want to share our home with you! We understand what our guests needs and wants are simply because we have been guests ourselves. We hope you enjoy your stay at our warm and inviting home, The Cañon Retreat!
