The neighborhood boasts 100-year old trees, good walking areas and 3 parks. We are within walking distance to the middle of the city and 2 blocks to Memorial Hospital.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We are Patrick and Jackie and the photo is from 2000 when we visited Turkey. We've traveled much and have lived in several other countries and we love providing a comfortable place to stay for fellow travelers. This vacation rental was first opened in June 2007.

Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
We really enjoy living downtown in Colorado Springs...the old houses, large trees, great neighborhoods and the proximity to museums, restaurants, theater, symphony, parks, movies, etc. Walking the old neighborhoods is wonderful and the large front porch is one of the things that first attracted me to the house. In summer it is filled with plants and flowers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We hope you'll enjoy staying here with the covered patio with outdoor kitchen. In the spring and summer there are fresh herbs that are available for the guests who like to cook. The private hot tub holds 6 people...children love it after a long day of sightseeing. It helps them sleep. Our kitchen is well equipped and receives many compliments as does the comfort of our beds. The back garden is an oasis in the city and is filled with fruit trees, flowers and some vegetables. Each week in spring, summer and fall something new is blooming!
