About the property

You're Looking At Our Dream House. We Love It So Much We Want To Share It.

Built in 2010 this family-owned custom home is located on the edge of the Black Forest between Colorado Springs and Monument, Colorado in a sub-division of 2 ½ to 5-acre lots. This 6,000 sq. ft. house is set back from the road on just under12 acres. The lot is half treed and half open prairie with view of the Continental Divide. There’s parking for 10 cars, a 7-person HOT TUB outdoor basketball hoop, fire pit, trampoline, playground-quality swing-set and teeter-totter, soccer goals, zip line, tree house/writing room, and plenty of space to send the kids outside without worrying about traffic.

The interior is designed to feel like a family farmhouse with all the amenities. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a play area with an array of toys, a miniature kitchen, and a tire swing. The main level includes a music room with a Yamaha upright piano, an art room, powder bath, laundry and locker area, a wood-burning fireplace, open kitchen/dining/living room, master suite, front and back decks with sitting areas, and a grilling area. The lower level features a walk-out to the back yard, a guest suite, 1 bath, TV den, ping pong table, treadmill and rec area.

You may have no desire to leave the house once you’re here but if you must grocery, shopping, and Starbucks are 10 minutes away. The Air Force Academy (10 mins), Garden of the Gods, (20 mins), Pikes Peak Railway and Manitou Incline (30 mins), and The Broadmoor Hotel (30 mins) are must-see attractions for Colorado.

Wonderful stay for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough about how perfect the Anderson home was for our family reunion trip! It’s huge, beautifully decorated, clean, organized and just perfect. We very much enjoyed all of the outdoor seating and the basement where we had multiple family game nights. This home comfortably slept 12+. I’d recommend it to anyone!

Our Family Reunion Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This past July 4th, our family traveled from Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Kentucky to Colorado Springs for a family reunion. This property was absolutely perfect for my parents, siblings, children, and my nieces and nephews. While my aunt hosted the actual reunion at her home, we all enjoyed coming back to our rental house to enjoy evenings of shooting pool, playing board games, and simply sharing memories (and making new ones). Our mornings were spent making breakfast with the farm fresh eggs and sipping coffee on the peaceful deck with the sun. The house was conveniently located close to my aunt's house AND it had easy access to highways to get us to the many adventures that Colorado Springs offers -- Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, and much more. This rental property was so perfect for our family - a family of farmers who appreciated the land as well as the beautiful country decor that each and every room displayed with love. Thank you Anderson Family for opening your beautiful home to be rented!

Great Kid-Friendly Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home with our children and grandchildren, a total of 17 of us. We did see sights in the area, but we all loved just spending time at the house. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and keep busy with all the inside activities, in addition to the fun things to do outside! Feeding the chickens and collecting eggs (and eating them!) was a highlight for us also! What a beautiful setting--our thanks for making this home a special place for our family to gather!

Beautiful and private!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast staying in this home! It’s a beautful home where everyone felt comfortable. There is so much to do at the home, that we hardly had to plan anything else! Older kids, young children, and adults all loved it! Megan and Jared were great hosts, and made sure that we were well taken care of. There is absolutely no complaints from us! Thank you!

Best Kid Freindly Property EVER !

  • 5 of 5

This home is for families. It has all the things that get kids excited not least of which is the chicken coop! You (your kids) can take care of the chickens while you stay if you wish. Plus there is a sweet young lady next door ( Mary ) who runs her own stables and horse riding lessons. The home is beautifully decorated with warm colors and has plenty of space to stretch out. There is a nice sized deck for evening conversation and relaxation. I highly recommend this home for families.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible home! We stayed here for graduation week for USAFA. It is roomy and spacious, but feels welcoming and cozy. We truly felt at home while we were there. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and feel comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed to cook and feed our family. Pro appliances, a large pantry and fridge that was empty and ready to be filled with our provisions for the week. FRESH EGGS EVERYDAY from the chickens on the property. We injoyed the piano in the music room, the ping pong table, pool table and basketball game in the basement, the trampoline, zip line and swings in the yard, the hot tub on the lower deck, the tree house was a great place for prayer and reflection, the porch swing was the perfect place for morning coffee and quiet time. We had plenty of towels, sheets and everyday necessities provided. If you have a family reunion, USAFA function, or just want to get away to beautiful Colorado, this is the house for you. Thank you so much Megan for your hospitality and hard work while we were there! You are a blessing! 😄?
