Enjoy the true feel of staying in the Colorado mountains. Relax in a private hot tub or sit outside on the covered wrap-around deck. While indoors enjoy the basement level den with bar area, flat screen TV and soft-tip dart board game.
With 3 separate stories everyone can have their own sense of privacy. Or get together on one floor to watch TV, cook a meal or hide out in the den. The top story consists of two bedrooms, one bedroom having a small TV/DVD player. The larger bedroom has a full size bed, while the smaller has two twin-size storage beds. There is a community closet to store one's belongings.
The main floor consists of the kitchen/living/dining room( 'great area'), master bedroom and bathroom. The living room area has a flat screen TV with satellite TV and DVD player. A huge remote controlled gas fireplace is a highlight to enjoy as you watch TV. There is a small breakfast bar and small dining table to enjoy your meals. Off the main floor, next to the kitchen is the entrance to the wrap around deck with a convenient gas grill and small bistro to sit at while cooking outside.
The master bedroom is very comfortable with plenty of storage and space. The master bedroom has a flat screen TV with satellite TV and is located right next to the bathroom for convenience. The bathroom is small but is newly remodeled with a tiled in shower.
The basement level consists of a den with a flat screen TV, bar area and dart board. It's a small but very enjoyable area to have a fun family evening. There is a gas stove on a programmable thermostat to keep the temperatures comfortable. A second bathroom is located next to the den for convenience. This bathroom has a tub/shower combination and a stacked full-size washer and dryer combination.
Walk out the garage door and hop into the small but inviting hot tub. The tub is designed to hold 3-4 people but much more comfortable for a couple. Sitting in the hot tub you can look toward the east and see for miles into the distance. Some of the best sunsets and sunrises can be viewed from this vantage point. With the covered deck right above, the hot tub can be enjoyed even in inclement weather.
There is an asphalt covered driveway that has two entrances and wraps around the house in a semi-circle. There are several different parking spaces, depending on specific needs.
Location! Location! Location! is so important and the 'Hummingbird' has it all.
The 'Hummingbird' is located just 30 miles west of Colorado Springs. Some of the main attractions in Colorado Springs are:
Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, and the Air Force Academy.
It is only 25 minutes to the small historic town of Cripple Creek, which now has casinos, hotels, nice restaurants, and the Butte Opera House.
Ten minutes from the 'Hummingbird' is the Fossil Beds National Monument and the historic Hornbek Homestead. The Fossil Beds has several hiking trails and a picnic area.
Barely one half of a mile east is the Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Refugee, which is almost within walking distance. Tours and programs are available upon reservation.
The 'Hummingbird' shares its property line with a 480 acre private fishing resort called 'Trout Haven', which truly gives it privacy. Breckenridge is an hour and a half drive for skiing in the winter and shopping in the summer, not to mention the beautiful drive there.

Really impressed our friends from out of town!
Really impressed our friends from out of town!
My boyfriend and I just recently moved to Colorado at the beginning of the year and were missing our friends dearly. We put together a week at the Hummingbird to spend some time with them and it was perfect. The kitchen is so well stocked; we wanted for nothing! The deck and fire pit area was an awesome area for sitting around and catching up. We had deer visiting us every morning and one even let me pet it. There are many great hiking areas close by with some of the most beautiful views I have seen since moving out here. We all agreed that we'd be back. Thank you from all of us for such an awesome week!

Owner response: Savannah, thank you so much for taking the time to write just an awesome review. I am thrilled that the hummingbird turned out to fit your needs so well and that you could impress your friends by choosing the hummingbird. It's wonderful to know that you all had a terrific time renewing your friendships. Yes, the deer can be pretty friendly up in that neck of the woods. I hope you all can plan another reunion in the future.
Property was exactly as described. Location was good and owner was very helpful in answering questions and addressing our needs. Home is comfortable and well appointed.

The home was furnished with everything I could possibly want... and things I wouldn't have thought of, too. It was extremely clean and very comfortable. The owner has provided a detailed "guide" to using everything in the home, and that was great! I happily recommend this home to anyone looking for a great place to relax and enjoy your time.

The hummingbird house was perfect. My daughter got married at the Lost Dutchman Resort and we needed additional housing for family. Your place fit the bill perfectly. Everything was great and the location was perfect!

Owner response: Barbara, thank you so much for taking the time out to give such a wonderful review for the Hummingbird. I'm very happy that the Hummingbird was a wonderful fit for you while having your daughter's wedding at the Resort. I hope you can have another stay at the Hummingbird that fits your needs.
The Hummingbird Home was absolutey beautiful. We had a fantastic trip! The house was exactly as expected, great mountain location with all the comforts of home. We used the grill, the hot tub, and spent most of our time listening to the birds out on the deck. Short drive to the Crag Park where we did a beautiful hike, and also visited the Florissant Fossil Beds just up the road. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Chistine for sharing your wonderful home!!

I am so happy that you enjoyed the amenities that it has to offer, such as the hot tub and the deck. I hope to have you again in the future. Once again, thank you for the outstanding review.
Great quiet place. Very clean and well equipped with everything you need. If you want to stay away from city and don't mind to drive a little to Colorado Springs attractions, we highly recommend this home. We have had great time and wish we could stay longer. We will come again

Great place to stay!

The rental was a pleasant surprise and a lot nicer than we expected. The property was very clean and the owner had everything ready for our arrival. The kitchen is well stocked with items and so are the other rooms. There were hummingbirds and we even had the pleasure of seeing two deer. I would definately recommend staying at this home, and we would love to stay again in the future.

Owner response: Phil, thank you so much for taking the time to do a review for the Hummingbird. I am thrilled that you enjoyed it and saw some wild life. I hope you get an opportunity to visit it again. I do try to keep the Hummingbird stocked with items that makes it convenient for people that are travelling or on a vacation. It's really difficult to pack everything for a trip, short or long.
Will stay here again...

The Hummingbird was very clean, well stocked, and we wanted for nothing. The owner was very accommodating and handled every curve ball we threw at her with ease. Recommend highly!

Hummingbird is a lovely cabin that was immaculate and provided everything we needed in the way of linens and kitchen utensils, etc. There was even filtered water in the frig! The wildlife at dawn and dusk was a real treat. Sitting out on the balony for breakfast and dinner was refreshing - and no bugs! My daughter and son-in-law live in Denver and they are already planning a return trip with friends.

About the owner: I have lived in the Colorado mountains for 17 years. I have resided in the same home because of how comfortable my home is. Located right next to a private fishing resort, it has a lot of privacy for it's small acreage. I now have the privilege of working at the Resort since my early retirement from the Postal Service in 2009. I am now into semi-retirement hoping someday in the near future to be fully retired.
