The Space

Located directly across from the AFA airfield, this home has beautiful trees in a quiet neighborhood with comfortable accomodations, wifi, broadcast TV, and a cozy kitchen. Price listed is for guest bedroom. If you request to use two rooms, the price will be higher.
The room listed has a queen sized bed, "American soft", a dresser, a secretary desk, two lamps, a couple mirrors, and a closet, along with a view of Pikes Peak from the window, which also has blinds and a black-out curtain.
The second room, which is not listed, and is available as an extra cost option with the first room, shares the bath and contains a twin-sized bed, a desk table, two lamps, and a window with an even better view of Pikes Peak and blackout curtains.
We invite you to eat breakfast here, either joining us or eating on your own, and to enjoy coffee, teas, and chocolate.
You are welcome to share the public areas of the home with us and those are included in the pictures. Since we have a separate living area and den area, as well as a dining room table and an eat-in kitchen table, it is also possible for you to visit privately in one area while we are using the other.
We also have table games, ping pong, and children's toys available, and can rent you bikes if that helps your adventures.
Restaurants are within walking or biking distance (14 min walk, 4 min bike), as is the nearest bus stop. Our tastes run toward Panera, ChikFilA, Olive Garden, and McDonalds (Robert), but there is something for everyone in the area.
The neighborhood includes some great walking routes as well as an excellent golf course and public parks and school playgrounds. We also recommend the nearest YMCA, the Santa Fe trail through the Air Force Academy, Walmart, King Soopers, Albertsons, and Costco.
At the top of our list of scenic attractions are the Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks Canyon, and North Cheyenne Canyon.

Guest Access

In addition to the bedroom or bedrooms you will have access to the main floor, with both a quiet sitting room and a social den attached to the kitchen. You can eat at the kitchen table or in the dining room.

Interaction with Guests

As our mutual schedules allow, we welcome interaction but don't demand it. We only allow guests to stay in the home without us present after a previous stay. This is especially good to know if you're interested in renting the home for air force academy graduation or another special event.

The Neighborhood

In addition to the golf course, there are options to walk in the countryside, in the neighborhood, and to nearby social centers such as the Briargate library and the Shops at Briargate.

Getting around

The closest city bus access is a 10 minute walk, an airport shuttle is slightly closer. If our schedules allow, we sometimes can pick guests up from these locations. Car travel will be your most convenient option.

Other Things to Note

If you would like to stay with us, please request a reservation. Queries without a reservation request do not receive as quick a response. If the date you are interested in is not available, you can contact us, but we cannot guarantee availability.

  • Steve and his family made us feel very welcome and we really enjoyed our time in their home. It was such a comfortable bed and the home made bread was great. We hope to visit Colorado Springs again. Thanks for having us!

    Response from Steve:

    And have fun in New Zealand and everywhere else your travels take you. You are a very winsome couple!

  • I wasn't able to make the trip so my husband was on his own. Steve and family were most gracious and made him feel right at home. He enjoyed their coffee and company. He said we would stay there again. The room was comfortable and as advertised, no surprises. Thanks Steve!

  • Steve and his family are very warm, and his house is a gem. Definitely stay with Steve if you want to be welcomed into a household with direction and understanding.

    Steve was great for giving me tips about local biking trails and took his time to show me exactly where I needed to go, and exactly what I needed to do.

    A fantastic stay with genuine and humble people.

  • Steve and Laura were wonderful hosts. Their home is very close to the Air Force Academy where I was going to visit my daughter. Their home is warm and comfortable, the bedroom was perfect for my needs with a queen bed and a desk to work at, the bath clean and spacious, and they are very close to the interstate and easy to find.

    Best of all Steve and Laura were very patient with me as my plans changed over and over again. In fact they did complain or balk one bit when I showed up earlier than planned and asked on the day of my arrival if I could change plans once more!

    They offered my coffee and breakfast and didn't mind my coming and going over the weekend.

    Thanks so much for helping to make my stay so pleasant.

    Response from Steve:

    I think you mean we didn't complain...but then you used the bed I hadn't finished making without a peep either! All the best, to you and all of yours, and especially your cadet. Tell her to call us if she needs anything!

  • This was our family's first Airbnb experience. We had had a great 12 night stay with these extraordinarily welcoming hosts.
    Besides their warm hospitality they keep a very comfortable, inviting and clean home.
    We would stay with them again in a heartbeat.

    Sweet! Happy travels...

  • My son and I enjoyed staying with Steve and Laura. They have a very clean and comfortable house in a nice neighborhood. They were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and even helped us find time-saving shortcuts to our destinations.

    Response from Steve:

    Thanks, Liz. You all were great guests!

  • Steve and Laura welcomed us and accomodated our schedules.
    Their bedrooms provided great rest with fresh mountain air! We enjoyed:
    the view of the Mountain Range,
    the big trees in the yard,
    a morning walk in the neighborhood
    and Laura's oatmeal with raisins!
    Everything spotless and 'ship shape'
