Colorado Springs house description

This charming 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Old Colorado City was built in 1918. It has been updated and renovated to provide comfort to today's traveler without losing the appealing touches not to be had in more “modern” homes. With plenty of open living space for the whole family (including living room, dining room, kitchen, front porch and reading nook), this house easily accommodates 4 people (up to 6 utilizing the provided air mattresses). Colorfully decorated with light colors, vaulted ceilings and comfortable furniture, the house welcomes tired travelers in need of a getaway!

The property includes a fully fenced yard as well as off-the street parking in the back. The fully equipped kitchen includes all dishware, cutlery, pots and pans, small appliances (such as coffee maker, toaster, blender, etc.) and large appliances (refrigerator, oven and dishwasher) needed to accommodate any meal preparation. Linens and towels are also available for your use, as well as access to a washer and dryer on-site.

The house is perfectly situated to take advantage of all that Colorado Springs has to offer! It is within walking distance of Old Colorado City’s famous shopping and restaurants, but also easy access to grocery shopping and drugstores and I-25. Hiking is only minutes away by car as well as downtown Colorado Springs!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We are both teachers living in Fort Worth, TX and expecting our first child. We found Colorado Springs when we attended Colorado College over several summers to get our Masters' Degrees and fell in love with the city! We bought this house in our favorite area, Old Colorado City, and have spent the last 3 summers enjoying, updating and decorating it!

                  Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                  We love the area. Walking to shops, concerts and parks is a great way to relax and slow down for a break. The unique touches in the house such as the vaulted ceilings, original push-button light switches, charming reading nook, open layout and just-the-right-size comfy-coziness!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house has retained its original charm and has the benefit of an eclectic and vibrant neighborhood. We love that you can walk to so many activities, stores and restaurants! It's all right there, including I-25 if you need to go exploring via car! We couldn't ask for a better vacation home and we hope you love it too!
