Manitou Springs cabin description

Come and enjoy this recently remodeled, passive solar, mountain cabin located in the Historic District of Manitou Springs! This cozy cabin with 2 bedrooms and 1 ½ baths sleeps 6 - 8 comfortably. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood a few minutes walk from the shops and restaurants and less than a block from Seven Minute Springs, a large park, and a shuttle stop offering free transportation throughout Manitou. A fully fenced yard provides safety while your children swing, slide, and play in the custom-built treehouse play area. Then, relax on the patio and take in the mountain views and lovely evening air. Enjoy a worry free vacation knowing that all cleaning products and kitchen supplies used in this home are earth friendly and health conscious for your family.

There is so much to do in Manitou Springs and surrounding areas: Take the cog railway, hike, or drive to the summit of 14,010 foot Pikes Peak, hike or horseback ride through Garden of the Gods Open Space which recently ranked as the #1 scenic park in America, take a spelunking tour of Cave of the Winds, or learn about Native American history at the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, all within walking/hiking distance. Hike, mountain bike, or rock climb at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, take in a music, wine, or food festival or a free Summer concert in Soda Springs Park (Monday evenings) or on the library lawn (Tuesday evenings). Shop and dine throughout the quaint main street of Manitou Springs, take a walking tour of the natural soda springs that gave this region its name, visit the vintage Manitou Arcade, and play or picnic in one of the many parks that Manitou has to offer.
