                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: This is my job. My houses were meticulously renovated for the vacation home experience. I decorated in a French theme because of my travels to Paris and France and my love of the culture, architecture and the general feeling that Parisian and French properties exude. I enjoy sharing our city with others and making people feel comfortable and special. I will do my best to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

                          Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                          I chose this location because of the historic nature of this area of Colorado Springs. It's fun and eclectic. Building began in the late 1800's but most along this historic street are early 1900's. This house was built in 1909. It is just a few blocks to the I-25 corridor and is minutes from the city center. You can get virtually anywhere in the city within 20 minutes from this location. I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 30 years and know the area quite well so I can give you advice or help in any area you need.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The charming is home is decorated with items brought back from my world travels to Europe and especially France. Each piece has been thoughtfully chosen for function or style. We have renovated the entire house to high standards. Our houses are above and beyond your average rental house. Attention to detail is evident when you walk into the property. From the Eiffel Tower salt & pepper shakers to the luxurious king size bed and linens, you will be in heaven! The outdoor gardens are spectacular in the summer! Even in the winter there is a gazebo and outdoor chimenea to cozy up to. This romantic Victorian cottage is all about making memories to last a lifetime!!
