My girlfriend and I and thinking about moving into the COS area, just have a couple questions. At this point we don't really want to live in the city itself so we are looking for a commutable suburb where we could rent a house, ideally with some property. Also we don't want to be living in the middle of nowhere, since we are both in our 20s some nightlife would be good. Just looking at the map I saw Castle Rock seems to be a nice in between point; what is that like?

What is the job situation like in the area?
Would it be better to live closer to Denver; job wise?
Both of us are somewhat jack of all trades; but what kind of jobs are in the area, mainly hospitality jobs? or is it more of a business area?

Anything else you want to tell me about the area would be great.

Castle Rock is more like a suburb of the Denver area, quite a bit north of Colorado Springs. If you're interested in the hospitality job market, then Denver is a better bet for you, as well as for nightlife. Coloraod Springs is a pretty quiet, conservative town, where as Denver, like a lot of big cities, has a really good night scene.

If you're looking for a rental with land, you might find something around the Castle Rock area, Happy Canyon, or Palmer Lake area. But, those areas don't have much going for them as far as a lot of job opportunites, so you'd have to commute to Denver. You might try the Denver board and look around on there for more answers.
