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.

You will have the entire house (2800 sq. ft.) with 2 kitchens inside, 5 bedrooms, 2 dining rooms, a TV/Media room, an outside kitchen and a large private 6-person hot tub. There is a large covered patio (17'x20') with a built-in outdoor kitchen (grill, refrigerator, sink) and a private garden in the back yard for your use. Also, there is a secluded patio off the dining room downstairs.

We offer 5 bedrooms, 1 with a king bed, 3 with queen beds and one with a trundle bed (2 twin beds). In the upstairs living room is a leather queen sleeper sofa if needed.

Also available is a high chair, 2 pack n plays, an umbrella stroller, safety gate and booster seat. This is a great house for families with kids!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

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.

Why the Owner Chose East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
