*****BRIDES - Why get ready in a small hotel room with only one sink with little counter space to get glamorous? When you, your maid of honor, bridesmaids, and mother can comfortably get ready for the big day with 3 bathrooms and a large walk-in dressing closet? Hang your gown up high off the floor in a lockable closet/room (where nothing can happen to it), instead of the back of the door in a hotel room, (where it can fall off and get wrinkled or worse.) We provide heavy duty dressing hooks, (perfect for that picture of your gown hanging up,) large mirrors, lots of lighting, plenty of storage for everything from your shoes to your jewelry, and a comfortable bench to sit and get ready on! And in case anything should go awry while getting ready on the big day, we have a BRIDAL EMERGENCY KIT (complete with lint roller, sewing kit, scissors, clear nail polish, etc!)

About the owner: We are natives to Colorado Springs, with insider tips on dining, entertainment, and secret trails! We have three young children who love being outdoors and exploring new places. We enjoy hiking, swimming, and traveling. Our rental home is a reflection of our love for family, and the blessings God has given us. We live in town, and can offer lots of suggestions on where to eat, play, and have fun as a family!
Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
The Colorful Colorado home was built in the Centennial Heights neighborhood in 1959. With wide streets, mature trees, large green lawns, long driveways, and large rectangular ranch style homes. It has all the charm and simplicity of the era, but is centrally located to all of the fun!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
See more! Do more! Make the most of your vacation without wasting time driving long distances to all corners of the city. With our central location you have access to all of the beauty of Colorado Springs in minutes! Feel like taking it easy? Stay in and watch a 3D movie relaxing on our leather sectional. Or take a walk to the trails in Palmer Park, right behind our house! Our neighborhood is routinely visited by wildlife. We have had bear, fox, and a family of deer that frequent our property. Apart from convenience, a quiet neighborhood, and an open floor plan that provides easy family fun; our home is priced to be family friendly while providing all of the luxuries you would expect at nicer hotels. Our dine-in kitchen makes it perfect for planning the next day's events over a home cooked meal, and make a perfect setting for retelling the day's excitement!
