Located within blocks of Hwy 24 and within minutes for I-25 it is an easy drive to over 25 local attractions, including Garden of the Gods, USAFA, Cheyenne Mtn.

For the people in your family who want to be able to walk to the shops, restaurants, galleries and events in Manitou, then this is the ideal home. The Victorian is 3,200 sq ft and located at 109 Pawnee Avenue in Manitou Springs, CO 80829.

                        My daughter was getting married, so as the father of the bride I needed a large home to entertain....this fit the bill wonderfully. Though it snowed and we weren't able to use all of the great outdoor facilities (outdoor fireplace, BBQ and picnic area)...the home was very spacious and we had 40 people inside with lots of room to spare. Most of the people were fascinated by the home's history and walked through the 3 levels and 10-15 rooms like a history tour. The owner and renter, Joanne is very nice and very easy to work with and couldn't be more accommodating. This was the first time we ever used the "home away" service and we couldn't have been happier.

                        Owner response: I was glad to hear the snow did not cause any problems with their plans to host the families' gathering during their daughter's wedding. This family was wonderful to work with and took very good care of my home. I look forward to their return visits!

                        We thoroughly enjoyed this house. We have a big family of 12, and there was plenty of room for all of us. Having a basketball goal in the backyard was a big hit with the boys. We especially loved being able to walk to the Penny Arcade just a few blocks away. We put 4 of the kids in the 3rd floor bedrooms. I definitely would NOT recommend this space for adults, because only the center of the ceilings is high enough to walk through without bumping your head. The beds (2 full and 2 twin) are kind of built into the floor and would not be ideal for an adult, either. And the bathroom on that floor has a tub with a shower head that hits you in the belly button (because of the low roof line). So you'd either have to sit down to "shower" in the tub, or take a bath. Also, the stairs going up to the 3rd floor are VERY steep (and the rail stops short of the top couple of steps so it's really tricky to get started coming down). So even though we put kids up there, I didn't let my youngest sleep there because I was a little reluctant for her to go up and down those stairs much. So I recommend kids ages maybe 7 and up are good candidates for the 3rd floor. I loved the style of the house; nice wood floors; reminds me of my grandma's house growing up. Great big kitchen table. Joanne was very accommodating and easy to work with. Would definitely stay there again.

                        House is beautiful and large! We had 9 of us in the house and never once felt we needed more space. The location in downtown Manitou could not be better. Very clean and updated. You’ll love the large grounds and grilling area. Very kid friendly. We will be back.

                        The house was great for our family reunion of 12. The house is completely furnished and we all enjoyed the old charm of this renovated Vitorian House. The patio was a wonderful feature to entertain for a dinner for 40 people. The kitchen was well equipped to cook the meal and the grill worked well to grill the meat, and the grill area worked well to serve beverages. Even during rainy weather the patio area is protected by trees. The dining area includes a large table and offered a great family gathering area. The location is perfect to walk to the downtown area of Manitou Springs and is located very close and convienent to many area attractions. The owners were attentive to our needs when we called them with questions. The house needs some upkeep but was a great fit for our short stay. This house rental is a must see to appreciate it's charm. I would rent this house again for a large family get- together.

                        My family and I enjoyed the spacious well maintained property, and was consistent with the descriptions and photos, and indeed right in the middle of Manitou springs with all its amenities, shopping, parks, toutist activities. It was not air conditioned when we arrived, pending repairs, the owner did tell us about it, she was gracious and helpful. Even more when she spontaneously and generously compensated us when the Waldo Canyon fire forced us to evacuate in the middle of our contracted rental period.

                        Our family stayed here a couple weeks ago and we were thrilled. There were 9 of us...5 of which were children between 6 and 12 yrs. The backyard was a savior! Lots for them to do (bikes, ping pong table, scooters, basketball, etc). Lots of room for everyone to spread out. We loved the backyard grill, countertops, tables and fireplace. It was the perfect place to entertain, which was great for us since my in-laws live 5 minutes away. The house was beautiful and very clean and in a perfect location as we walked to downtown Manitou every day. We will stay here every time we visit!
