Private 3 Bedroom 1st Level Retreat


The house sits on a 5-acre forested lot east of Monument at an elevation of 7440 feet. It is nestled back off the road with a view of Pikes Peak from the front deck. It is a quiet destination with the owners providing great hospitality. The guests have access to everything on the first level. The host lives upstairs on the main level.

More information


The house is 3800 square feet and has three bedrooms on the 1st level that sleeps 6 that guests can use. If you have more folks, we have two single mattresses that folks can put on the floor and make up for two additional people plus a couch that could sleep two. Great place for Air Force parents wanting to attend Graduation or Parent's weekend or for a family gets together. The house sits on 5 acres and has a beautiful view of Pikes Peak from the front deck that guests may use and is shared with the host. Guests can enjoy the quiet solitude of the fountain and fire pit off of the back patio or go out and play basketball on the sports court. They also can enjoy a movie, a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of wine in the comfortable living space downstairs in front of a warm cozy fire.

The guest has their own private entrance off of the back patio, which allows them to come and go without disturbing the host which live on the upper level. A door has recently been installed at the bottom of the stairs so guests have complete privacy and noise from the upstairs doesn't come downstairs. They have sole access to three bedrooms downstairs, 1 bathroom, family room, and the gym. They will also have access to the kitchen upstairs and the front deck which is shared with the host and can use the additional bathroom off of the laundry room if needed.

All of the homes in our development sit on 5 acre lots so you have privacy with views of Pikes Peak from the front deck. Certainly, don't have the hustle and bustle of the city.

Guest access

The guest will have access to three private bedrooms downstairs, 1 bathroom, family room, back patio, and the gym. They will also have access to the kitchen upstairs which is shared with the host. They may use the laundry facilities if they need to. If they need an additional bathroom they may use the one off of the laundry room. The hosts live in the house full-time and will be upstairs during their stay. We have added a small microwave, mini-fridge, toaster oven and Keurig' machine for coffee, tea and hot chocolate based on customer feedback. We have also added cups and glasses for guests to use. We just recently installed a door that closes off the upstairs from the 1st level. This was recommended by several guests to enhance the privacy of those downstairs or the owners that are on the upper level.

Interaction with guests

As much as they desire, guests can interact with the hosts. We like them to feel comfortable and their stay enjoyable. If guests want more privacy, please communicate that to the host upon arrival.

Other things to note

The dogs are friendly and love to play. Their names are Bonnie and Sox and are a black lab mix. 

There is no public transportation in our area. Guests would need to have a vehicle to get around. We do offer airport pickup and drop off services from DIA and Colorado Springs. We are cheaper than the shuttle or Uber.

My family had a delightful time at Sally's home! The home was beautiful and clean. We enjoyed being in a rural setting and yet have quick and easy access to any place we wanted to go. We will definitely be back!


Sally and her husband were very welcoming. Their place provided a spacious and comfortable place for our family to visit Colorado Springs. Our kids really enjoyed the garden. We definitively recommend this place for family to stay!


If you are staying in Monument, stop looking and book this place! The snacks, goodies, coffee, and travel size bathroom toiletries were a such a pleasant surprise/bonus! Beds are very comfortable and the rooms feel bigger to me in person than in the photos. There was a small issue in the booking process that Sally fixed promptly and professionally, would definitely book again in our future travels to Colorado.


Thanks so much for all the extras - bagels/cereal/coffee! The outdoor space was wonderful. We had a great and comfortable stay!


Sally’s place is wonderful! Her and her husband are gracious hosts and their house is beautiful. The beds are super comfortable and the space is stunningly clean. The extras like cereal, milk, water, tea and coffee made our stay very easy. My family can’t wait to come back to Monument and stay at Sally’s.


Overall a nice experience. Quiet neighborhood, comfortable beds, nice imentities. Sally and Greg were great hosts. We would stay with them again. Thanks for a good trip.


Sally is a great person who cares for peer human and goes out of her way to provide best support! We had a cross country trip and needed a place to stay overnight; although we never made it to Sally’s place, she was willing to push out the check in time and accommodate us in every way possible! Clearly, Sally has the good all moral! I truly thank you for all the communication and your will to work with our constant delayed schedule)) Wish you all the best and let good people like yourself always be around you! Thank you Sally!!!


They thought of everything! From the movie selection to the small water fall outside the door to the coffee maker to the edible goodies provided this place was wonderful. The owners are lovely as well. We had a great stay here and enjoyed the natural beauty of their property and the surrounding areas. It's a fantastic place for a family!
