This cozy guest suite is part of a larger house but comes with a separate entrance as well as separate heating and air-conditioning unit. Set a little on the outskirts, you are surrounded by mountains and large open spaces and might even spot some wild animals wandering by. From here the Broadmoor Seven Falls and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo are just 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) away, while other attractions are within a 20-minute drive.
There are unbelievable weekly discounts at this suite. This unit as well as the surrounding area is on an incline, so you need to be prepared. But when you are surrounded by mountains, it is expected, so strap on your hiking boots and explore the gorgeous surroundings.
