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 East 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!

The 1902 House is a true classic that takes you back in time. Great location. Jackie is quite the host. She was very informative and hospitable. Made our family reunion vacation in Colorado Springs very enjoyable.

Great place, great location, kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

Loved our time at the VRBO. Had lots of kid friendly accommodations (high chair, booster seat, 2 pack and plays, kids cups, etc). Great outdoor space too. Plenty of room for our family reunion. Super clean, super cute. Only downside was the driveway was too steep to drive in so we had to park on the street which is quite busy. With that being said, never hear a peep of noise from traffic.

We loved this house.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. We were greeted with fresh fruit, pastries and juice. Jackie set up a tree and provided the ornaments. The grandchildren loved decorating it. The space was perfect for everyone. For family who stayed there and those who came to visit. One night there were 25 of us with room for all. I would love to see the gardens in full bloom. It was nice enough to grill out one night for dinner. The hot tub was so relaxing after a busy day of sight seeing. I would highly recommend this property.

This was an amazing house in a wonderful area with an engaging host

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this home over the Thanksgiving Holiday. There were 7 adults and 1 child along with a visiting family of 3 during the day. We had plenty of space to relax or privacy when needed. Jackie was easily reached for questions and was very accommodating. The house is well-equipped and we lacked nothing in preparing our Thanksgiving feast. It also helped that there were two full kitchens. This made everything so much easier. For a large gathering for business or family, I would recommend this great place.
