Colorado Springs bungalow description

This delightful, very private, fully furnished, southwest style bungalow is located on the very edge of charming Old Colorado City Historic District on the 'mountain' side of Colorado Springs. It is a mere two minute walking distance to simply great restaurants, dozens of unique specialty shops and galleries, the Carnegie Library, the Old Colorado City History Center, Bancroft Park, ice cream, chocolate, good wine and a casual but hip nightlife. In Old Colorado City you will also find the famous Simpich Marionette Threatre and Thee Michael Garmen Gallery and Magic Town.

Bicycists will be pleased to know that the new Midland Bicycle Trail, connecting downtown and America Beautiful Park to Old Colorado City, ManitouSprings and the Garden of the Gods Park, runs right past the front gate. In minutes you can also cover the one halfmile to the Red Rocks Canyon Park where you will find great hiking, rock climbing and bicycling...and great views!

Centrally located in the foot hills, just beneath the ever-so-famous Pikes Peak, you be only a five minute drive from the incomparable Garden of the Gods Park where you will find the Garden of the Gods Visitor Center, Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, more stunning views and incredible hiking trails.

Two miles or ten minutes west, in historic Manitou Springs, you will find the Pikes Peak Cog Railway Station and the trail head for the Barr Trail. Both will take you to the breathtaking top of 14,110 foot tall Pikes Peak, one on foot and the other in railway cars made in Switzerland. Manitou also offers great food, a classic arcade, dozens of delightful shops and restaurants and the world famous Cave of the Winds.

Two miles to the east is downtown Colorado Springs with its hopping Tejon Street, great shops, good restaurants, the Climbing Wall, Kimballs Movie Theater, The Fine Art Center, Colorado College, The Pioneers Museum and the home of the United States Olympic Headquarters. A bit further to the east you may visit the United States Olympic Training Center. Twenty miles to the north is the United States Air Force Academy, the most visited site in Colorado.

Drive ten minutes to the south and youwill find the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the only mountain zoo in the world, the five-star Broadmoor Hotel and the famous Seven Falls and Cheyenne Canyon.

Drive two blocks to the south to Hightway 24 and you will be on your way west to the entrance gate of the Pikes Peak Highway in Cascade, Colorado (closed in the winter), and on into Woodland Park, Colorado, a great little mountain town and home of the soon to be new equestrian center and Pike National Forest. From there it is less than an hour to Cripple Creek where the history of gold mining in Colorado awaits you, along with many casinos, even more spectacular views, a train ride and family friendly donkeys. In between, in every direction, are miles and miles of hiking and biking trails.

Along with the terrific location in a private, quiet neighborhood in historic Old Colorado City, this bungalow offers a serene ambiance where you may relax, curl up by the fire and read something from the family collection of books relating to the history of Colorado, pile up the pillows in either bedroom and enjoy a movie from an equally terrific collection of movies or just nap to the sounds of a favorite CD.

On-site Manager/Hostess, while assuring your privacy, is available on request for laundry service, assistance in securing bicycles, booking resersvations, providing directions and answering questions about interesting local attractions and activities.

We look forward to meeting you and assuring you a successful visit to Colorado Springs.

                              About the owner: We are Colorado natives that have grown up loving the history and the natural wonders of the Colorado Springs area. There are few places that offer so many opportunities to enjoy vacationing so near and within such a beautiful, thriving city. This adobe bungalow has offered rest and respite to our family members for over a decade. We invite you to enjoy!

                              Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
                              This property caught the eye of a family member many years before it was acquired. The unique style, the westside location and the proximaty to Old Colorado City made it special indeed! It's also style pays tribute to the rich Native American history of the area.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                              This charming bungalow was designed by an artist as her home studio and it is easy to recognize the benefits of that in the unique design details incorporated into every room. Located just off of the beaten path, it offers a private, comforting ambiance after a busy day of hiking, biking and sightseeing.
