The space
Our property is unique because of the multitude of access and adventures at your fingertips. The Pond house is a 4 season home (accessible during winter). with a private driveway and views galore of Pikes Peak and surrounding mountains. We have ample parking for your RV if you are ready to get off the road. Access to public land (Bureau of Land Management) for hiking and old mines to explore if you are a "rock hound". Night sky star gazing is amazing. We do allow up to 2 pets. As long as they are well behaved.
What might be a negative is our wifi. If you are looking for wifi and “being connected” to the internet “all the time” this might not be your place. The Pond House does have Wifi but it is dependent on weather and ect... We have satellite TV with over a hundred channels. You will have cell phone coverage unless your cell phone provider does not have ample coverage.
