Please place this in the correct category if this doesn't belong here.

We are moving back to Colorado Springs because the commute is too much for my husband. Our home near the Royal Gorge is for rent through Canon City Rentals.

What you get:

1100 sq. ft. remodeled manufactured house built in 2002

3 bedrooms

2 baths

New windows

New exterior paint

Newish interior paint

New carpet

Real fixtures, not dollhouse sized

Water softener


Propane furnace

Wood stove and wood pile

Artesian well

Freeze proof tank house

5' high dog fence

Up to 4 dogs allowed

Small to medium sized doggie door

Bark and gravel covered backyard for easy living with dogs

New rock garden (requires some maintenance)

20' shipping container for storage

Great hiking, wildlife watching (no hunting)

Pinion/juniper scrublands

Lots of firewood ready for cutting

Year round spring at far end of property - excellent goat grazing, but unfenced

Chickens, geese, ducks, guinea fowl OK – you provide shelter. (No animals allowed without proper shelter.)


Not fully fenced, so no hoof stock unless you put up your own corral, shelter and trough

No hunting

Challenging 4WD driveway

20 minutes from a town of 16,000

This is independent country living. Snow on the driveway, and you want it cleared? Your responsibility.

Water filter needs to be changed once per month – your job. (We provide detailed instructions.)

Out of potassium chloride crystals for the water softener? Get to town and buy more before the iron in the water ruins the fixtures.

Need firewood? You cut it or purchase it from the fella down the road.

Need propane? Plan far enough in advance that the company can get a truck down the driveway when it is bone dry. (No mud, no snow.) They DO NOT come the same day you call.

This kind of living is not for everyone. But it is heaven for some. We are sad to leave.

$1000/month   Contact Ashley at 719-275-7368.  Sorry, we cannot do any trades for labor, etc.
