The 1902 Downtown House is 114 years old and was built by an early Cripple Creek mining engineer. In 1926 it was converted into 2 living spaces. We have just renovated and turned this back into a single family residence. We have rented out the top half since 2007 (see reviews).

It will remind you of early Colorado Springs at the turn of the 20th century. The neighborhood boasts 100-year old trees, good walking areas and 3 parks. We are within walking distance to the middle of the city and 2 blocks to Memorial Hospital.

You will feel as if you are on grandmother's large front porch with wicker furniture for relaxing! Have lunch here or enjoy wine at the end of the day.

About The Owner

We are Patrick and Jackie and the photo is from 2000 when we visited Turkey. We've traveled much and have lived in several other countries and we love providing a comfortable place to stay for fellow travelers. This vacation rental was first opened in June 2007.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Colorado Springs

We really enjoy living downtown in Colorado Springs...the old houses, large trees, great neighborhoods and the proximity to museums, restaurants, theater, symphony, parks, movies, etc. Walking the old neighborhoods is wonderful and the large front porch is one of the things that first attracted me to the house.

What makes this house unique

We hope you'll enjoy staying here with the covered patio with outdoor kitchen. In the spring and summer there are fresh herbs that are available for the guests who like to cook. The private hot tub holds 6 people...children love it after a long day of sightseeing. It helps them sleep. Our kitchens are well equipped and receive many compliments as does the comfort of our beds. The back garden is an oasis in the city and is filled with fruit trees, flowers and some vegetables. Each week in spring, summer and fall something new is blooming!

As good as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

The property was a very nice turn of the century home. House was well outfitted to meet all our needs. This house would be a five star if not for a few minor details.

The master bedroom's window A/C unit was not blowing cold air in the 90+ days. This only affected us because our baby slept in there during the day. Due to the angle of the driveway, our party sustained minor damage to two vehicles trying to avoid the busy street side parking. We had to run and exchange a propane tank while bbq'ing because the main & spare tanks were empty. Lastly, although Mr. Patrick (owner) is very friendly, it was a bit offsetting to have him there (using garage as wood shop) from time to time while using the outdoor kitchen.

Oh, and as a firefighter (with bachelors in Occupational Safety & Health) I must say the hindrance of paddle locked doors that left only one means of egress on main level, was a bit unnerving.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Ron! I am so glad you like the house but am dismayed at some small problems you encountered. We have 2 very strong evaporative coolers for the house and the 3rd smaller one in a back bedroom meant as a fan to keep the nights cooled. When you told me that the room was being used during the day, I offered to have it hooked up to the water immediately for you. You declined our offer and now I wish we had insisted. The driveway angle is due to the recapping of the street. I discussed this with you before arrival and suggested that any cars that were low to the ground should park in front of the house. As you saw, most people on the street park in front of their houses and there is ample room. I am very sorry about you needing to refill the propane for the grill and we have talked to our cleaning team about it. I offered to pay for it but,, again, you declined our offer. You had agreed to Patrick's use of the back garage before your stay....we are in the process of moving his workshop to our new house so that won't be happening in the future. As to your egress statement, there are 2 separate exits on the 1st floor and 1 on the second floor out of the kitchen (plus coming down the stairs to the front door). On the 1st floor there is a main front door and the French doors leading outside from the dining room. We do try so hard to please everyone and I'm sorry that this wasn't perfect for you.

Awsome Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. The owner went overboard to insure our families great stay. My wife was celebrating her birthday and we had planned a large family reunion. Everything went well as the house accommodated everyone comfortably. The owner provided delicious fresh muffins for everyone and even provided fresh flowers for my wife.

Great value with lots of extras

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute, historic rental and was priced well compared to many others we looked at. The hot tub and garden/patio areas were great, and the breakfast food Jackie left for us was more than enough (we had breakfast for several days actually). The garden is so charming, and it was relaxing to sit and read on the shaded front porch, also. There are some things that come along with an older home (creaky floors, old plaster on the bathroom ceiling looked like it could crumble anytime), but these were very minor things that are just part of being in an older home. The kitchen has a nice set of dishes, shower had a nice waterfall style showerhead, and as I mentioned, the breakfast was very generous. We would stay there again if we went back to Colorado Springs.

Owner's Response: Hello Cherie! Thank you for the nice review. We really do like a couple of creaky floors of an old house and I'm glad you did too. The texture on the bathroom ceiling has been a problem (NOT the ceiling but the texture) but it has never crumbled. We are replacing it with a tin ceiling in August when we have a day or 2 without guests. We hope you come back, you were great guests! Jackie

Had a good stay

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very friendly and easily reachable at all times. Helped provide a high chair and 2 pack'n'plays which made traveling with children so much easier. Property was clean and comfortable. Good location in Colorado Springs and it was easy to get to any place in the area. Would recommend

Wonderful Time in Colorado!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was at this house. The owners did a wonderful job setting up this rental so that visitors would feel comfortable and at home. The food for my first morning’s breakfast was a bigger deal than I had figured it would be. I had just driven 800 miles, arrived and went to sleep. Waking up to a full breakfast and coffee was a nice treat. The house is comfortable and easily slept the 6 of us. The house was very clean and well situated to be close to downtown Co. Springs. The hot tub, garden and outdoor kitchen were all really great additions to the experience. We gathered as a family for my nephew’s graduation from college, the owners made us feel so welcomed from the time when arrived until the time we left they were always available if we needed. The property was exactly as described in fact even better and the owners well helpful and a delight to talk to. My family will never forget this wonderful experience, I would absolutely recommend this property to friends/relatives, and I would absolutely stay here again. Thank you very much Jackie and Patrick!

lovely and welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

My two children, my mother and I stayed here for a couple of nights for a short spring break getaway. The house is lovely! It was very nicely furnished, but also extremely comfortable! The owners were so welcoming and made us all feel that we could relax during our stay. (My son who has autism can get a bit noisy dancing to self-regulate, but the owners assured me that he was free to make himself at home. For this reason,I would recommend it to persons who have sensory differences, although it is on the upper floor, so it might not be the best option for people with mobility issues/physical disabilities) We all enjoyed using the hot tub under the moon and stars. And having food available to make our own breakfast was a nice extra touch.

My younger son said he wished he could live there! We'll definitely look forward top staying there again in the future!
