Property description

PIKES PEAK COTTAGE BY GARDEN OF THE GODS, 3 BEDROOMS, 1 FULL BATHROOM, (sleeps 4-6) is located on a quiet street in the heart of LOCAL ATTRACTIONS. It offers a beautiful view of Pikes Peak from the 'picture' window and the front porch. Location is the key. Most of attractions are 1-2 miles away.

The house has 3 bedrooms each furnished with a queen size bed, a living room with comfortable leather furniture, a dining room for 6-8 guests, full kitchen, and a breakfast room. Big fenced backyard with a BBQ grill and a patio.

Restaurants, shops, parks and some attractions are within a walking distance from the property. Communal pool is just 2 miles away. Garden of the Gods is less than 2 miles away.

The cottage is located in Old Colorado City, a historic town and a former capital of the State of Colorado, about 2 miles to Manitou Springs (another historic town) and less than a 2 miles to Garden of the Gods and about five minutes to downtown Colorado Springs. It is only four blocks to National Historic District of Old Colorado City with its restaurants, antique shops, art galleries and museums. There is a supermarket only 3 blocks away if you need any groceries.


There are two parks right by the property too. There are Academy Stables near by the property for horseback riding. There are tons of activities for kids and adults: Indian Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak Cog Rail, Miramont Castle, Santa's Workshop, Seven Falls, Air Force Academy, Museums, Restaurants, etc. There are a lot of trails, creeks, lakes around. We like to hike in Red Rock Canyon/Open space and have a picnic there sometimes.. There is our favorite Rudy's BBQ right by Red Rock Canyon.
