Description of the Colorado Springs vacation home rental
Bring the whole gang,(up to 24 people) and cook, eat, sleep and play under one roof in this 7800 sq ft Colorado Style Retreat/Family Reunion Home. Perched on the ridge of a 40 acre secluded estate, this mini ranch is conveniently located only 12 minutes from the Air force Academy, 15 minutes from Colorado Springs, 6 minutes from Monument and services, 20 minutes from Castle Rock, and 35 minutes from South Denver. The 360 degree view offers beautiful sunrises, sunsets and miles of ever changing, unobstructed mountain vistas.
The House on Bluebird Ridge accommodates up to 24 people, and offers you the opportunity to host intimate special gatherings such as weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate retreats, family reunion functions and barbecues for up to 50 people.
You won't have to leave Bluebird Ridge to enjoy Colorado's beauty. Although, we highly recommend you do check out all the fun things to see and do nearby; hiking, trail running, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, tennis, golf, and swimming. You will also want to pull yourself from the ranch and take in some mountain adventures and touristy stuff; US Air Force Academy, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Olympic Training Center, Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Cripple Creek Casino Town, Manitou and Old Colorado City shopping.
For added fun, treat your kids to a real Colorado Adventure; pack and pitch a tent on the property and spend a magical Colorado night around the campfire before you finish the cool night off with a soak in the hot tub.

Animal Policy

Dogs: Dogs are not allowed in the house and there is no fenced in area for dogs outside. The coyotes and hawks poise a real threat t little dogs (we have lost a few), so please don't bring them to the house. If you have a pet that must travel with you, we can recommend an exceptional, nearby Boarding facility that offers your dog great fun at their 5 acre Dog Park like facility. Your dog deserves a vacation too.

Cat & Dog: ALERGY WARNING.....There is a resident ranch cat on the property at times. He mostly stays outside, but does sneak in from time to time to cuddle. His name is Oscar and he can stay for your enjoyment, or if there is an allergy issue, you can request he be removed from the premises during your stay. There is also a Golden Retriever named Sawyer that has access to the mudroom in the house throughout the year, but will not be on the premises during your stay. (If a serious cat or dog allergy exists, we do not recommend you stay in the house.)

Area Information
Bluebird Ridge Ranch sits on 40 acres adjacent to the exclusive Kings Deer Neighborhood peppered with million dollar estates on 2.5 acre lots just outside Colorado Springs City limits, in Monument Colorado. You will feel like you are far away from it all, but the grocery store, Walmart and restaurants are only 5-10 min away. It is peaceful, easy living and a great place to gather big families. Golf and hiking and biking trails are close by.
