About Mountain Shadows

It’s the quiet Saturday coffee sessions on your front porch. It’s the warm scent of pine and aspen trees just outside your bedroom window. It’s the lush green landscapes welcoming you home after a long day at work. It’s the Black Forest community — the home you’ve always needed.

These peaceful rural properties are nestled within the Ponderosa Pines just north of Colorado Springs. With acres of land surrounding their homes, the residents of Black Forest enjoy having nature as their next door neighbors.

You deserve more than cookie-cutter homes and claustrophobic living conditions. Your new home in the Black Forest community will protect you from urban sprawl and the hustle and bustle of the big city. Because nature is a beautiful thing, and so is privacy.
