Why Melissa Woodley chose Colorado Springs

Welcome! I am a Midwest native and Colorado transplant since 1994. Local owner just a couple minutes away, long time Realtor, gardener, and animal lover. I purchased this home 20 years ago as a first time buyer and I still miss it every time I am there. I knew when I saw it then this was home for me. It's full of character, charm and warmth and everyone who enters falls in love. It is a great street with wonderful neighbors, people out walking or walking with their dogs... big trees, birds and the views are wonderful too. The backyard is the best place to relax, have a beer or cocktail, listen to the birds and grill some burgers or steaks.

The best thing about this home other than how comfortable it is, is that it is walking distance to Old Colorado City. It's only a 5 minute drive to Garden of the Gods and less than 10 minutes from Manitou Springs and the heart of downtown Colorado Springs. You can also jump on Highway 24 and head up to Woodland Park or west to Breckenridge for the day.

Several coffee shops, restaurants and fast food are within walking distance. Farmers market In Bancroft Park on Saturdays until 2pm.

Miles of hiking and mountain biking trails less than 5 minutes away in Red Rock Open Space, Garden of the Gods and Bear Creek Park. There is so much great hiking and biking you won't be able to see it all. Please do not hesitate to call or send a message with any questions or information you might need to help plan your trip!

Lovely place to stay in Old Colorado!

  • 5 of 5

This is an old house, that has been updated beautifully! The house was very clean, and incredibly well supplied. I didn't have to worry about running out to the store soon after arriving, to pick up things like toilet paper or soap. Melissa seemed to think of everything ahead of time. And she was very easy to contact, and quick to answer any questions. We really enjoyed the patio in the back of the house, and had our breakfasts there. The house has interesting historic things in it, and beautiful paintings.

There is one bathroom that has two doors. One of the doors leads into the downstairs bedroom, and the other door leads into the kitchen. We had to work out a system for night time, (since there were 3 of us, and some nights 4) so we knew if it was occupied or not. Turned out to be no big deal. The house did heat up quickly, and after being gone all day, it was difficult to cool down. Thankfully, there were several fans, and some small air conditioners, though we preferred open windows and fans on high.

We were easily able to walk into town for lunch, dinner, or just some ice cream. We were very busy while there, taking care of family business, and really enjoyed having a homey place to return to in the evening.

July 5th Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house. Very clean and everything we needed. First time using Homeaway and will use it again. The area was great and we walked downtown every day for Breakfast and hit every shop. Also is a great area for jogging on the side streets with little traffic. Would highly recommend the house.

We had a lovely stay here in O.C.C. This property was on a quiet tree lined street, very quiet. Melissa was lovely and very helpful. The property was very well equipped and we had everything we needed. 2 minute walk to Colorado Avenue for shops, bars and restaurants.

Cute house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 ( 3 kids aged 9, 6, 4) had a wonderful stay here. The property is located close to all the major tourist sites and is super walkable to restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed having a fenced yard that the kids could play in while the adults enjoyed a drink on the patio in the evening. The beds were very comfy, the house was very clean,and the house was nicely stocked with necessities. The only thing that could be improved is maybe adding a ceiling fan in the living room. But we were there during a very warm week. Would absolutely recommend this property and stay here again!

Clean comfy house close to downtown Old Colorado City and Garden of the Gods

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our stay. It's a lovely house and was close to everything we wanted to visit. Loved having a washer and dryer so we didn't have to pack as much, too. It was probably the cleanest place we've ever stayed in as well! I'd definitely rent this place again if we visit the Colorado Springs area again.
