About Jeff & Kelly Hinshaw
Jeff and I met in Colorado after relocating from Indiana and Ohio. We love the Rocky Mountains and have lived in the area for over 15 years. My husband is a computer programmer and I am an art teacher. We have twin girls that are now in 7th grade and bring so much joy to our lives. Being 1 mile to the gorgeous hiking trails at Garden of the Gods and Ute Valley park plus enjoying the views from this house is what we love most about our neighborhood. Manitou is another place we frequent to hike the incline and Barr trail which goes to 14,110 feet on top of Pikes Peak (Cog railway is an easier option). We also enjoy going to local pubs and hanging out in Manitou and Colorado Springs. Overall, this is a great area that we enjoy because of the low humidity, sunshine and outdoor activities like skiing, hiking and camping with our kids.

Great house for large family vacation
We stayed here with our three adult children and their families and the house was wonderful. It was nice that bedrooms are spread out over three floors. We also made great use of the ping pong table in the basement. The outdoor space is a little small for larger groups, but we enjoyed many meals outside and it has fantastic views. When we arrived we had one issue with the property, however we contacted the owners and they resolved the problem quickly and completely. We also loved the location. Highly recommend this property!
Beautiful perfect in every way. Great patio

Beautiful property with a great location
My family and I spent a week in Colorado Springs and absolutely loved this property. The home was very well laid out and maintained and the location was great for hiking and sight seeing. The backyard was nice with a comfortable seating area under a pergola and a view of Garden of the Gods. Lots of wildlife with deer and rabbits visiting daily. Kelly and Jeff were very gracious hosts and had plenty of helpful information for us about the area. Highly recommend this property for a fun time in Colorado.
Clean and spacious!
We rented this property for the USAFA graduation. It was a great size to help accommodate all the guests we would be hosting! The openness and cleanliness strikes you first as you walk into the home. Beautiful and so tastefully decorated. The owners were flexible when our guest list changed to include very small children and we were so grateful. There was one issue with the garage door and they fixed it the same day even though they hadn’t promised it until the next day! The only drawback was that we wanted to share it with more people, as our crowd was large. The outside patio would’ve been perfect for our barbecue but we promised we wouldn’t have more than the allowed 8 people. Despite that, we would surely recommended this house to others as it provided so many other great amenities and many comforts of home! Thank you for sharing your space!
We have kids scattered throughout the country and this was a great meeting place for everyone. The house is beautiful and the views from the back breathtaking. Fortunately, the weather was unseasonably warm for this time of year and we were able to enjoy the back patio as well as the well equipped inside.
The house is located in a great location, with everything you need within minutes. Kelly and Jeff were very responsive when answering a couple of the questions we had during our stay. Would highly recommend this property.
This is my first review of anything on the internet. Felt compelled to finally write something because we really enjoyed our stay for a week in this lovely home while vacationing in Colorado Springs 2 weeks ago. Everything went smoothly. The house had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. It is situated in a quiet community way up high on a hill with gorgeous views! Lots of restaurants nearby and several supermarkets in the area. Downtown only 12-15 min away. Owners were great, easy to reach and quick to respond when we had questions. Would definitely rent again.
