Car: Recommended

You will stay on the main floor of my lovely 2 story brick Victorian just blocks west of downtown Colorado Springs. Centrally located with easy access to I-25 and walkable (10 min) to downtown, minutes to Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak and up the pass 15 minutes to the mountains via Woodland Park.

This is a 2 bedroom / 1 bath rental that accommodates 4 guests. The house has been updated while retaining its turn of the century charm. Enjoy a queen bed in the master bedroom and have plenty of room for your clothes in the 6 foot wardrobe and several drawers in the dresser. The 2nd bedroom is furnished with antique full size 4 poster bed and an EastLake bureau with mirror and marble accent.

The living room and dining room have beautiful period and craftsman furnishings, the bathroom has a six foot Victorian claw-foot tub with a 2-headed shower. The bathroom has just been re-tiled with octagonal white tile with black accents.

The kitchen has been remodeled and features period appliances and 'old-time' feel. Even a chef will be comfortable in the kitchen. I use cast iron and anodized aluminum chef-ware, porcelain dishes (some plastic too - for kids cereal, etc), high quality flatware, wine and beer glasses, spices, and the pantry has a full set of basics for cooking as well. You only need bring your food and any specialty spices for a meal, perishables, etc.

This isn't a sterile condo rental - your stay is in a beautifully furnished period home with everything you should need except your personals. Outside, the front porch has two comfortable chairs that look out on a xeriscaped garden. Out in the fenced back yard are a propane grill and smoker, and a Weber charcoal grill, garden chairs around a fire pit, pond and waterfall. Parking is in front, or we can make gated parking in the back available.

See my other property in Flagstaff AZ -- for the last 8 years it has had nothing but top reviews on HomeAway - over 40 total 5 star reviews. I am bringing the same attention to detail and quality to this property. See http://www.homeaway.com/251101
