About the property

Downtown home/walk to Colorado College. Updated w/original woodwork. Gorgeous!

Home is located on a tree lined street in central Colorado Springs. The area is called the Old North End and was developed around 1900. The house is a remodeled home with 2 bedrooms, 1.5baths, sleeps 5. Our home was built in 1900 and features original wood floors and trim. Everything else has been updated. Kitchen has gas range, Island hood, tile floors, breakfast bar, adjacent dining room & more. The property has off street parking and is 1-2 blocks to Colorado College, 1 mile to downtown Colorado Springs, about 10-15 minutes to Garden of the Gods and quick and easy access to I-25. From the house you can get just about anywhere in Colorado Springs in 15-20 minutes. There is WiFi, 50 inch HD TV, cable tv and internet service, linens/towels/blankets/pillows and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The Master bedroom has a queen mattress, the second bedroom has a twin Daybed and the living room has a full sized pullout Sofa sleeper. There is a front porch with table and two chairs and the back patio has a table with 6 chairs and two Adirondack type chairs. The house has central Air Conditioning but being a 118+yr old home, the upstairs doesn't cool as well as the main level. The home is very comfortable and completely set up as a vacation home. We sincerely desire that it is fully equipped to meet all of your needs. Feel free to give us feedback to help us improve where needed!

This is a new vacation rental (March 2018) but we've had a vacation rental by Breckenridge for about 4 years. Call or message if you have any questions about the house or your stay!

About Mark Wallick

My wife and I have two children and have lived in Colorado Springs since 1999. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs and this home has been in my family since it was built in 1900. We have had significant renovation done to it since we have owned it. Most recently we had the wood floors refinished and completely remodeled the kitchen. We hope you enjoy the home!

Mark Wallick purchased this house in 2002

Why Mark Wallick chose Colorado Springs

Very updated home with original wood flooring and original wood trim. Gourmet kitchen. Beautiful finishing and decor. 1-2 blocks to Colorado College and close to downtown and everything in Colorado Springs/Pikes Peak Region. Easy access to I25 means you can be anywhere in the Pikes Peak Region in under 30 minutes (most places 15-20 minutes).

Delightful stay. Charming house.

  • 5 of 5

We grew up in Colo Spgs so this was a fun and exciting return visit. We love this part of town. The house (cottage) is conveniently located. It is only minutes from Patty Jewett golf corse, Colorado College, Olympic Training Center and downtown. We tried doing a little bit of everything during our stay. This was a good rallying point. Friends and family stopped by to see us a couple of times. They approved and liked the house as well.

The house has lots of character. It is well equipped. We loved it. Would stay here again.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying there. There was a lot to do and see and come home to a well furnished and equipped place to relax. It was close to things and easy to get around. We loved to walk the neighborhood and see the sights too.

Quiet location, nice setup

  • 5 of 5

The house was a nice retreat for my son and I will he had leave from USAFA. Although an older home, it has been nicely updated and everything worked great. Kitchen has been modernized and is well stocked with the essentials and some nice extras. Quiet location - was nice to open windows in the morning and read.
