About Alyce McElhoes

Twenty-one years ago we purchased 40 acres from the original homesteader of the land on a handshake deal. We subdivided the land into home-sites, built homes on them, sold them to lovely neighbors, and created covenants that protected property values but allowed for fun things to do like have animals and barns. Our 3 children grew up here and had ducks, goats, cats, dogs, motorcycles, and go carts . They went off to college, got degrees, and have come back to help with the family business. As a labor of love we all built this beautiful gathering place that we hope people will come, stay, play, and enjoy the wide open Colorado spaces that we call home.

Alyce McElhoes purchased this estate in 2016

Why Alyce McElhoes chose Colorado Springs

This is a very unique, new, private, and beautiful home. Almost all of the finishes in the home are totally hand crafted. It is a very versatile property. It can easily accommodate larger groups but is also cozy and inviting for a small group. The hosts are experienced in planning both large and small events and parties and are happy to help. It is close in to some fantastic parks (like 417 acre Fox Run Park), restaurants and shopping, but sits on a peaceful 15 acres of land.

What makes this estate unique

Sizable gathering areas, beautiful Colorado construction, many options for your stay. Experienced, professional, friendly, and accessible hosts ready to be a part of helping you plan your wedding, family vacation, or weekend retreat. Peaceful indoor and outdoor spaces to hang out, read a book, or sit by a fireplace. Two big screen TVs to watch a game or good movie. 6 Person Hot Tub. Great game area in a heated garage for everyone to enjoy. Private cul-de-sac road for walking or biking.

Perfect venue for family gatherings/celebrations!

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a rehearsal dinner for 55 on a Friday evening and a barbque the following afternoon for an even larger number. Our family and friends traveled from all over the US to celebrate this wedding and having this "home away from home" to visit/eat/meet/chat/laugh and create memories made all the difference! It was lovely to not have time restrictions on our gatherings (as you might experience in a hotel/restaurant/commercial venue), so folks could arrive and linger in a relaxed fashion. The kitchen and great room were beautiful and ultra clean, the check in couldn't have been easier and Alyce is delightful. We give this a 5 STAR rating!

Whimsical and rustic in all the right ways

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a positively amazing experience hosting our intimate, romantic wedding here. It poured rain for our entire wedding but it was still a fantastic day and this was definitely the best place to have chosen to host it. The dual functionality offered - as both a house and an event space- makes this an amazing choice for anyone hosting a smaller event whether that's a wedding, graduation party, engagement party, or family reunion. We loved being able to choose our own caterer (and most other vendors) and not being required to pick from a list. The wedding pricing was exceptional. The space is new and well kept (some other venues we looked at seeemed run down just due to old age). It's a beautiful place so we didn't even put up too many decorations because we wanted to showcase the beauty of the space itself. We hosted our ceremony outside (we rented a tent last minute for this due to the weather forecast and I'm sure glad we did), cocktail hour in the garage (perfect space for this), and the reception in the main hall (this was jaw dropping beautiful all set-up for a wedding). We also enjoyed being able to spend the night with several of our guests before and after the wedding. It improved the logistics of set-up and clean-up drastically. Plus the honeymoon suite is so magical you'll never want to leave :).

Unique, spacious, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing. My mom's brothers and sisters and their families came in to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and the house was perfect! It's unique and really feels like Colorado- so many beautiful mountain touches! There was lots of space for everyone to sleep and an open layout allowed everyone to enjoy each other. The kitchen had lots of prep space and two ovens!

Alyce was so accommodating and pleasant to work with.

Can't wait to stay here again!
