Welcome to the most magnificent and unique residence in Colorado Springs. This home has had many articles written about it, and has appeared on TV news.

Sit by the meditative waters of the award winning Koi ponds, and enjoy unobstructed panoramic views of Pikes Peak Range and the Garden of the Gods. As one guest said, it is “A truly magical and unforgettable experience.” To be clear you will be renting the lower floor and grounds. The upper floor is a private residence

The space
This is a two story home. I live on the second floor, and guests have access to the entire first floor, with private entrance, workout room, dry and steam saunas, entertainment room with large screen tvs, and library. The two floors are completely separate and private. It is necessary that I reside at the residence as the koi need daily care but otherwise you will not know that I am there if that is your wish.

Bedroom one is a studio with a queen bed, full kitchen, bath, sitting area and fireplace. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed with a fold-out trundle for additional person or child, private bath, private outside entrance, coffee maker, microwave and fridge. There is also a queen sofa/bed in the TV room.

Guests have access to all the outside amenities... koi ponds, picnic areas, BBQ, hiking trails down into the adjacent 200 acre park, etc.

Guest access
Entire first floor and outside amenities.

Other things to note
Pets are allowed if not left alone in airbnb space

Hi. I'm Ray Armstrong. I began my adult life at UCLA. It was a busy time, as I was on a football and track scholarship, while majoring in Zoology. I played in UCLA's first Rose Bowl victory against Michigan State and was an Academic All American. Upon graduation, I entered UCLA dental school, after which I found myself in Denver completing a dental internship. During this time, I fell in love with the mountains of Colorado, and all the skiing, mountain climbing, running, biking and everything else Colorado has to offer. I just couldn't leave. I set up a solo dental practice in Colorado Springs, and maintained this practice for 40 years. Early on, in 1976, I found the property where Sun Peaks now sits, and I had a vision to create something that would give back to the community, and I've been slowly evolving and developing the place ever since. I retired from dentistry in 2013, to devote my time to continuing the realization of this vision. The property has evolved into quite a model of Sustainability, and I am happy to share it. In addition to its being a guest retreat, I give tours and presentations on the topic of Sustainability, and I have established Sun Peaks Center for Art & Sustainability, a non-profit educational organization and Artist Residency. Your experience here is up to you.... I am available to share information about our environmental systems, information about the attractions nearby, etc. Or, you can come and go without ever running into me, if that is your wish.
