Colorado Springs house description
'Location, Location, Location!'
Welcome to our mountain getaway retreat in the city, located in beautiful Cheyenne Canyon at 1428 Cheyenne Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80906, just 5 blocks from the historic Broadmoor Hotel!! This is a unique area within Colorado Springs, because it is in the heart of nature, where you can see wildlife (deer, foxes, and bear) and truly experience Colorado's rugged outdoors. It is nothing like staying in a city. Although we are less than ten minutes from downtown, we are worlds apart.
This light, bright 900 square foot two bedroom getaway borders miles of parks and open spaces. It is the perfect spot to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! 'The Canyon' was a small sleepy resort community in years gone by, one of only two canyons in Colorado Springs, The homes were mostly built in the 1920's and 1930's and were bungalows and cottages. As the years passed and people discovered this oasis, more homes were built.
This attached house was built in 1963 and it shares its back wall with another house but there is more privacy because it is not built side by side, but is front to back... It is located on Cheyenne Blvd which dead ends into Cheyenne Canyon park. It has mainly tourist and local traffic, (more during the day on the weekends), so you may hear cars going by, but its mostly quieter at night... With the A/Cs on, there isn't much traffic noise... The house is located above the 2 garages, which are only used for storage. The front door is located up a flight of outside cement stairs.
The property is a short two block walk farther into the canyon to the Stratton Open Space Preserve where you can walk on miles of trails,enjoy wonderful hiking, biking and exploring. Walking westward towards the mountains along Cheyenne Blvd, is a lovely coffee shop, a nice place to stop for a capuccino or mocha before continuing on into Cheyenne Canyon Park and the Starsmore Discovery center (an educational nature center, great for children of all ages), with miles of hikes along Cheyenne Creek. If you drive into the canyon, the beauty will astound you! Seven Falls and Helen Hunt Falls are located right down the road a bit deeper into Cheyenne Canyon and both are incredibly beautiful. For a shot of old world elegance, walk to the five star Broadmoor hotel, an historic resort that is a wonderful place to go for a drink or a meal or just to walk around the gorgeous grounds! (pups welcome on the grounds)
Our house has two bedrooms. One has a king sized bed and the other has a new queen sized mattress. There is a trundle bed in the living room which pulls out to 2 twin beds if you to accomodate 6 people in beds.
This inviting property is furnished with acomfy sofas in the living room. There is a new 22 flat screen television in the bedroom with the King bed and there is a 20' flatscreen TV in the queen bedroom. There is a new 40' Samsung Flat Screen HD LCD TV in the Living room. All TVs have full cable TV service. We are also set up for wireless internet access so you can sit outside and surf the web.
The decor is contemporary with earth tone walls and oak hardwood floors throughout (no carpeting at all). There is a full eat-in kitchen with an oak table and 6 chairs, linoleum floors, electric stove and a dishwasher. There is everything you could need for a fun vacation! There are new air-conditioners in both bedrooms and the living room (which cool the whole place), but summer evenings in Colorado tend to be cooler, so it cools down beautifully at night.
There is a small, balcony area off the kitchen looking west over Cheyenne Blvd towards trees & mountains. Directly below the balcony is a dirt driveway leading to a small enclave of properties. The balcony has a gas barbeque, as well as a small patio table and chairs for Al Fresco dining. This is the only outside area, as there is no yard..
We allow pets... Let us know if for some reason you need a kennel or help with your pet during your stay and we will try to accommodate your pooch.
We are less than ten minutes from historic Old Colorado City and fifteen minutes from exciting Manitou Springs with their wonderful restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and galleries. Garden of the Gods park, with its exquisite red rock formations, is a must see and it is less than 10 minutes away with a fantastic visitor's center. Downtown Colorado Springs is just a hop, skip and jump away, as well... The Air Force Academy is about 25 minutes north of us, and Colorado College is about 10 minutes away in the downtown area. The Olympic Training Center is east of us and less than a fifteen minute drive.
Bear Creek Dog Park and Bear Creek Nature Center are less than 10 minutes down the road, and are wonderful places to take the kids! There is also a beautiful zoo less than 10 minutes away. There are many fabulous day trips less than 2 hours from us, including the drive up Pikes Peak, marveling at the Royal Gorge, rafting on the Arkansas river, soaking in hotsprings, exploring Cave of the Winds, and visiting the Cliff-dwelling museum, all great entertainment for kids.
This property has parking for up to two cars in front of the lefthand garage door below and can also accommodate a medium sized RV.

Very nice rental! Mark was great to work with - helped us out a lot. We were able to bring our dogs which was a big deal to us for a mini vacation. We loved how close it was to everything including walking areas for our dogs. Didn't get to do everything we wanted on our short trip with the fact that a few things were closed due to the flooding but Pikes Peak was absolutely amazing! We can't wait to come back!

My wife and I spent the month of August traveling around Colorado. Our primary activity was rock climbing, but we also did some mountain biking, hiking, swimming, and of course shopping. Our travels had us staying in four different condos across Colorado. Mark's condo was well furnished and stocked with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The condo is centrally located between the downtown area and the outdoor activities we were there for. There is great mountain biking and rock climbing right up the road in North Cheyenne Canyon as well as world class climbing within driving distance. I would consider staying here again if I return to Colorado Springs.

This location worked well for our family. It is really close to Seven Falls and the Zoo and only about 15 minutes from Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Old Colorado City. The decor is better than pictured, new bedding and drapes and more furniture in living room. The table does have a leaf and folding chairs to accommodate more than the four pictured and daybed and trundle are fully twin mattresses. The only downfall for us was that the Wifi was spotty. Had hoped to research activities on iPad but could not always get on. Definitely not more than one of us at a time if that. Overall very clean and met expectations. I would recommend it.

We were delighted with this Vacation Rental Home
We were delighted with this Vacation Rental Home
We really enjoyed our stay in Colorado Springs. The rental home we stayed in was a big part of making our stay enjoyable. The owner of the home had stocked the home with a lot of little surprises such as coffee, movies, internet, cable tv. We appreciated the washer/dryer so we didn't have to drag a bunch of dirty laundry home. The master bed was very soft and spacious. We (and our dog) enjoyed mornings walking down to the wilderness trails just one block away. I would certainly rent this one again in the future. Highly recommended!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Pardon the corny photo from X-Mas last year at our daughter's house... We have 3 Corgi dogs of our own, all rescued from the Humane Society, and our daughter has a 4th Corgi, also a rescue... We take our 3 pups with us where-ever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the Cheyenne Canyon area. We have been married for close to 30 years. We lived in New York City for our first 35+ years, and have lived in Colorado for the past 18 years. We love it here! (You will too!)
Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
We purchased this wonderful property because we live 3 blocks away and wanted to share our love for Cheyenne Canyon with others... It is a country getaway right in the city. We had fallen in love with Cheyenne Canyon park and its miles and miles of hiking and biking trails and when this property came up for sale, we couldn't resist!
