This place was amazing and the hosts were truly wonderful. I'd say they were the friendliest of all those we've met thus far. They really made our stay memorable.

We had a great stay at Sunshine Mountain. The property is fairly secluded. There are a couple buildings on the property so it doesn’t feel like you’re in someone’s driveway. Convenient to Manitou Springs, Pike’s Peak, Woodland Park, and more! We were greeted by Holly, a most gracious host. She was always very quick to respond to anything we needed. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Holly was a great host with an awesome spot. We arrived after dark and Holly was there to greet us with a welcome bag and tips on hikes and where to get dinner. The next morning we woke up to horses out the back window and took the dog for a walk on a short loop that runs through the back of the property. This is one of few HipCamps with a full hookup and the views both on the drive up and at the site are gorgeous. One thing to note is that the waterline is not insulated for winter so Holly asked us to fill up our fresh tank rather than using the water connection.

Holly was a great host and helped us out in anyway she could! Her property is beautiful and tucked away just behind Walmart. I loved waking up to seeing the horses next door!
