About Deb and Steve Roggie

We have been married for 37 years and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren. We grew up in upstate New York and moved to Colorado Springs in 1996. Colorado is now home to us and we just love it here. We enjoy our little church where Steve is one of the pastors and we spend much of our spare time delivering food to the homeless and down and out, through the food ministry we're a part of. We love that we can share this home and give others the opportunity to enjoy the fantastic Black Forest Getaway which is so close to everything yet far enough away to be a great getaway.

Deb and Steve Roggie purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why Deb and Steve Roggie chose Colorado

We Love the Black Forest and always wanted to live there ourselves. We are told by everyone how relaxing and quiet this home is. An amazing retreat! Why be in the city when you can be so close yet feel so far away. Come check out this one of a kind getaway.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This home is perfect for the small family or a couple or two just looking to get away. The house is fully furnished and very comfortable, sit by the warm fire and enjoy your free Wi-Fi, cable, dvd player, movies and toys for the family. Outside you have a BBQ grill, with everything you need to enjoy your home cooked meal. Enjoy the hot tub that seats 4 and provides a great time of rest and relaxation.

perfect home base!

  • 4 of 5

Deb and Steve - thank you for opening up your home to us! It made for the perfect home base for all of our Colorado adventures. We especially enjoyed all the games and activities you provided. We took advantage of almost all of the games and hardly an evening went by that we didn't play a game (or 3) of bocce ball. It was a great way to unwind after a day of hiking and exploring! We would definitely book this home again!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Boy! Where do I start? This property is amazing! Great location, great layout, with all the amenities you can think of. The house is clean throughout! The kitchen is very roomy with current appliances. Love the power reclining couch! Very comfortable beds. Quiet location, yet not too far from the tourist attractions. There were four of us that stayed here for 5 nights and each couple having their own bathroom was a bonus. If we ever visit Colorado again, we will definitely book this location!

Beautiful home in the forest!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 nights with our family of 6. The home is cozy and nicely decorated. We cooked and had everything we needed. The kids loved the game room and the toys in the closet. There are stores a short drive away and lots to do in Colorado Springs. Wonderful stay!

Nice retreat in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at this retreat. The owner was very responsive to questions before our arrival. The property was clean and well furnished. Our kids enjoyed the hot tub, exploring in the yard and also watching the cows next door. Don't worry we never smelled the cows when sitting on the patio or heard them making noise, there are only a few of them. We didn't see the pond that was pictured. It is a bit far from most of the activities, shopping and dining we wanted to do but having the extra space and the reasonable rate made up for it for us.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The country is wonderful and all that it offers. The pond is the neighbors and dries up sometimes in the heat of the summer. That's why you didn't see it. Hope you all have a great summer. Blessings Deb & Steve

Super clean and quiet!!

  • 5 of 5

We met friends here for a five day stay and loved this house. The kitchen and sunroom/porch area were a plus for our time together. The short driving distance to many Colorado Springs attractions made this location very convenient. We would highly recommend this house for two couples or a family.

Minutes to Air Force Academy, Castle Rock outlet stores, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, or Check out Pikes Peak or adventures in the mountains. Eat in a different cultural restaurant for every meal then spend some time touring Focus on the Family or take in a movie. Or if you would like to take a day trip to Cripple Creek it is an easy beautiful drive thru the mountains. Spend the evening in the quiet of your personal retreat as you relax in your hot tub and watch for deer passing through.
