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. 2 Palmer Lake wedding venues are walking distance and the 3rd is driving distance.
- This is an upstairs apartment so may not be accessible for some potential guests. Technically there is room for 3 guests; the 3rd bed is a fold-out chair bed or the couch. It is NOT a fold-out couch, but is comfortable to sleep on for a young person. There is an additional small charge for a 4th person. If an infant is coming, please bring your own baby bed. There is a permanent safety gate at the top of the stairs.
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.
