This Beautiful one bedroom, one bath cottage is very spacious and furnished with all the comforts one should enjoy. It is located in a friendly neighborhood between Old Colorado City and Downtown Colorado Springs. This location is perfect for a work trip or one of pleasure and sightseeing.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: Richard and Allan moved to Colorado Springs from Austin, Texas in 2003 to enjoy retirement and everything Colorado has to offer. We built our home and gardens in the Victorian Style to fit the neighborhood. Allan retired from the telecommunications industry and Richard retired from the interior design industry. We share the interests of gardening, and love to travel. We have been to many countries around the world. Our favorite way to travel is staying in Self Catering Houses. We look forward to giving you the same wonderful experience in our cottage, that we have enjoyed during our travels.

Why Colorado Springs:
This completely renovated Cottage was built in 1898. It is adjacent to our home which was built in 2009. This neighborhood is part of the historic district of Old Colorado City. We choose to build our Victorian style home here because we think it is the friendliest neighborhood in the city. Don't be alarmed if people stop and talk with you as they are on their morning or afternoon walk through the neighborhood. We also enjoy that the area is very eclectic with character that many other parts of town are lacking. The location is very central in the city. We are slightly on the west side of town which gives easy access to the tourist friendly city of Manitou and the mountains beyond. Oh, and the best part of living in this great city is the magnificent views of 'America's Mountain', Pikes Peak. I never get tired of this ever changing scenery. Richard is a native of Colorado. He spent his professional years in Austin, Texas. Retired now, the choice to move back to Colorado was an easy one as the weather is simply the best. The winters beautiful with many sunny days and the summer days are warm with cooling evenings and nights. Just perfect! Colorado Springs has the amenities of a large city, but still the feel of a small town. So we welcome you to come and enjoy this city that we love and call home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Tranquility! Comfort! Relaxation! Security! Whether you're in Colorado Springs for business or pleasure you can come home to the cottage knowing you will rest after a long hard day of work or sightseeing. Enjoy a drink on the Island patio with the sound of water flowing while the sun is setting. Enjoy the cool summer evenings in conversation amidst the beauty of the gardens. Come and enjoy what we get to enjoy every day! Oh and the best part is you don't have to do any of the work!
