A Respite from the Maryland Heat
Steven Lawhon Fallston, Maryland
The home is simply stunning. The floor plan is highly functional and smart. The 'delta wing' design allows for expansive views of the valley from every room, with large windows that gently allow the interior to spill outside to splendid views. Just off the rooms, glass-walled decking allows for uninterrupted views while reclining/sitting under the sunshine and blue skies. The interior design is exquisite - simple, tasteful and themed to the outdoors but with refined sensibilities. The woodwork throughout the home is beautiful. The ceiling woodwork is beautiful and dramatic, but its color tones are understated creating a feeling of both oneness with the surroundings and a luxurious separateness from the world. We loved our stay and look forward to returning.

Exceeded All of Our Expectations!
Gil and Patricia Mission Viejo, CA
The unique layout of the house gives each couple privacy but also provides opportunities to sit all together for meals or just to relax by the fire. There are windows everywhere to capture the beauty of the surroundings. We would not only highly recommend this property to our friends, we would rent it again in a heartbeat for any time of the year and for any occasion. We travel around the country a great deal and we've stayed at some lovely hotels and rented some beautiful homes but this was by far the best value, the most accommodating, and the overall best experience we've ever had with a rental.

Colorado Christmas
Kaylene C Frisco, Texas
I'm not sure that I could gush enough about the wonderful time we had at Trout Creek. We came to Trout Creek for Christmas with our 2 children and extended family of sister, brother and spouses. Our daughters 8 and 5 said it was the best vacation ever. We went with an idea of making memories for our daughters to cherish forever and I think we accomplished that.

Trout Creek Home
Mike and Lynn Westerville, Ohio
Our family of 8 spent a wonderful week at Trout Creek in July 2008. This lovely home is a perfect, relaxing getaway for enjoying time together in between visits to the many tourist attractions in nearby Colorado Springs and the surrounding area. It exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend the early morning horseback breakfast ride at Triple B Ranch (just down the road from Trout Creek

Great Family Vacation
Hotczech Houston, TX
In August 2008 three generations gathered for the perfect getaway. We loved the home. The outside patios have great views of the valley. The bedrooms are large and comfortable and the bathrooms are luxurious. We all enjoyed the fire pit outside, enjoying smores most nights. We enjoyed the wildlife, spotting fox, coyote, bear, elk and mule deer. There are so many activites in the area for all ages. We enjoyed the North Pole, train to Pikes Peak, shopping in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City, Cheyenne Zoo, biking down from Pikes Peak, lunch at the Broadmoor, and great hiking. We have already booked for 2009. Owner comment: This delightful family will be returning this summer for their third year.

Words don't do it justice
USAFA Cadet Mom Lambertville, Michigan
This is by far one of the most pleasurable and memorable places that our family has ever had the extreme luck to spend a week at. The accomodations are five star all the way and the mountain backdrop is beyond mere words! Wildlife is in great abundance, as well as a peace and quiet. Even though the house was back into its mountain setting, all the required convieniences are well within a few minutes drive.

Paradise in Colorado
Rob and Donna San Francisco, CA
The home was everything one could ask for - and more. From the initial contact with the owners and throughout the stay everything was just perfect. The house is equipped with everything you need. And the views and wildlife are amazing. So many things to do in the area we could have stayed another week
