Excellent home even better management company! This home was an excellent base camp for my family. From here we enjoyed hiking (saw a moose), mountain climbing (Handies Peak, Sneffels, Potato Hill), 4x4 off-roading (Alpine Loop), mountain biking (Hermosa Trail – awesome), and played kickball with the neighbors. It was a great time all around. An additional word about the manager for this property – he deserves 6 stars. Super professional. All the information he provides is right on point. Lastly, I messed up my reservation and he saved my vacation.
Thank you!

Bend, Oregon

Originally settled in the early 1900s, Bend got its start as a logging town positioned along the eastern edge of the Cascade Range, a high desert sanctuary. Nestled along the Deschutes River, the city is surrounded by majestic, volcanic peaks such as Three Sisters and Mount Bachelor. With an oft-quoted 300 days of sunshine, access to the outdoors is practically year-round.

Colorado Springs, Colorado

The city of Colorado Springs is nestled just south of Denver at the foot of one of America’s most famous landmarks, Pikes Peak, upon whose summit Katharine Lee Bates was inspired to write “America the Beautiful.” Visitors still converge on the peak, where they can drive, ride the Pikes Peak Cog Railway or even hike to its 14,115-foot summit. Every summer, skilled drivers gather to race from Mile 7 on the Pikes Peak Highway to the fourteener’s summit on the Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
