Cleaning fee included in the basic price! Stay in historic Palmer Lake, Colorado, just north of the Air Force Academy, 2 blocks from Pike National Forest, the actual Lake, & the Santa Fe Trail. We offer a private, upstairs, detached 1 bedroom furnished apartment with a deck facing south, that is beside our home. Only 2-3 blocks from restaurants, hiking, and fishing, 15 minutes north of the Air Force Academy & Colorado Springs.

The space
The apartment is located beside our home, in the neighborhood of the Palmer Lake town. We are down the road from access to the Palmer Lake Reservoir hiking trail and Pike National forest to the west, and the actual Palmer Lake and Santa Fe hiking trail 3-4 blocks to the east. The Colorado Renaissance Festival runs weekends June - July and is just a few miles north. The apartment is in its own building with a small outdoor sitting area/patio near the entrance. It is a full 1 bedroom with queen bed, bath with shower, open kitchen and living room that opens onto the deck. There is a fold out single chair bed that will fit 1 person or 1 person could sleep on the couch (it is comfortable but not a couch-bed). There is a safety gate at the top of the stairs to the apartment but not a full door, and if an infant comes, please bring your own baby bed if needed. Internet is included. There is a TV (but no cable) and a DVD player. The bedroom has an air conditioner, but usually an open window at night is all that is needed in our area of Colorado. The cleaning fee is included in the basic price!

The entire apartment is yours!

Other things to note
Being located on the Palmer Divide, we do receive snow, but happily, our road is one of the first to be plowed, as well as Highway 105 that leads the 3 miles to I-25.

Location

Palmer Lake, Colorado, United States

We are also close to the Palmer Lake Town Hall and Library and a small Village Green that includes the original town jail. When you arrive, in the apartment is a list of all of the "walking distance" restaurants, including an ice cream shop, Mexican, Italian, a coffee and breakfast/lunch shop, a steak and burger bar, and a casual restaurant overlooking the lake. In Monument (3 miles east) are many more restaurants (Black Forest deli, Chilis, Village Inn, Chinese, etc) and grocery, drug, and all of your other stores that most communities have, like Walgreens, Kohls, Walmart, Home Depot, etc. we are in the neighborhood with other homes around us but the views are great and again, you are only blocks from forest trails and natural parks.

We are married and have 2 adult children, one in Fort Collins, CO and one in Portland, Oregon. Nancy is a half time support services teacher and John is an artist and former screenprint company owner. We've lived in Palmer Lake since 1981, and love our small town at the edge of the mountains. We have national forest at the end of the street to the west and the lake 2 blocks to the east. We absolutely loved raising our kids here with so many outdoor things to do, while still being only 5 minutes from Monument and I-25 where the stores and more restaurants are. We adore watching the wildlife that wanders through, especially the hummingbirds and deer. Did you know that the deer will eat the pumpkins after Halloween is over? We also love being able to walk to several restaurants and the best ice cream shop ever, as well as a public library and the annual activities at the Village Green in front of the town hall.
