Chose the Colorado Springs area to retire, and loving it. I could live full time out of the RV in a heart beat; my wife prefers to have a permanent place to call home.
I'm happy to give free advice on investments, but you know what free advice is worth ;-)
We have a dog, Lizzie. She enjoys people more than other dogs. She is a boxer-mix with a beautiful brindle color.
I loved the boondocking-friendly locations right along the roads in Canada (Alberta, BC, Yukon).

A delightful couple with a wonderful, well-behaved dog. We enjoyed each other's company as well as their dog.
All three are welcome to come visit us again!!! Wine is very good!!!
It's to bad we didn't meet, they were familiar with traveling to Alaska, which we have coming up. I don't think they had any problems or concerns, they just stayed over night. One of these days our paths will cross, maybe at their place. I hope you made it to burger night in Moab?
Absolutely amazing! We stayed 3 nights and couldn't have asked for anything better! Karen was super friendly, easy to communicate with, and gave plenty of recommendations of stuff to do in the area. The location is ideal: a quiet neighborhood near Colorado Springs with beautiful views of Pike's Peak. AND we had 30amp hookup for the duration of our stay. Great experience. Highly recommend if you are in the area!!
We stayed with scubabone 3 nights and it was very relaxing. The host or very laid back easy going and communicated well with us even though I had all sorts of problems on my end with my internet connection. Their location is great not to close to Co. Springs but an easy drive in to all the attractions. Thanks again to both of them. Oh yeah if you are nice you will get to pet Lizzie!
This was a great place to stay. Hosts very nice and have lived in the area long enough to tell us interesting places to check out. We were able to do a day trip to Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods. Both are easily done in one day from here. Their dog is very nice and got along with ours. Beautiful sunsets from here, we were never up early enough for a sunrise but I’m sure it’s equally great. Lots of wildlife in the area, biggest bunnies we’ve ever seen! Lots of prong horns in the area. Enjoy-we sure did.
Wonderful hosts who were generous with their time, their property, and their knowledge of the area. My dog will miss their super sweet dog and hunting for Jack rabbits!
The location has a tremendous view of mountains to one side and prairie to the other. Easy access to pikes peak and local sites.
Hope to see the hosts on the road sometime. Stay in touch!
These hosts are offering anamazing view at Pikes Peakfrom your rv-bed. Which star hotel can offer that.
With the luck of improving weather conditions we visited the Peak and returned on this site. Extension with one day no problem. Thank you Doug and Karen for your hapitality; we enjoyed.
We had a lovely stay at Lizzie’s Mountain View! The view is amazing and our hosts were so nice and very helpful. They even had a printout with helpful info, which was useful for us to find a nearby dump station.
A VERY nice overnight with welcoming gracious hosts. And Lizzie doggie kisses too! Lots of room for any sized rig. We thought we might appreciate the offer of 30 amp hookup for A/C but balmy midsummer high desert breezes were much better! Didn’t spend as much time in the area as we hoped but look forward to a return visit.
They were wonderful hosts! They welcomed us with open arms, gave us great options for parking, helped us get the RV situated, and even showed us around the neighborhood! We will definitely visit again the next time we are in CO. Springs!
What a great spot and an even nicer couple. We spent Memorial Day Weekend here! The hosts were extremely generous to us. We had a few issues and they went above and beyond the call to help us. Will definitely stop and see them if we’re back in the area.
Wish we had some time to become better acquainted. We were in Colorado Springs for a graduation and were very grateful for this boondocking home for 3 days.
Perfect location for checking out Garden of the gods & Pikes Peak. Quiet area with nice views & helpful hosts. Our dogs enjoyed a bit of freedom also!
Great quiet safe spot. Level parking and allowed us to fill up with water, very generous. Thanks for being willing to share your home with us.
