Property description

Come escape and unwind at this charming Spanish-style bungalow nestled beneath the Garden of the Gods Park in historic Manitou Springs! 'Manitou' is the Native American word for 'spirit' and after you spend time here and the surrounding area, your spirits will definitely become awakened and refreshed.

Snuggle into this quaint bungalow and wake up to the sounds of mountain chickadees, barn swallows, and yellow canaries. Relax in the breakfast nook as you enjoy a cup of coffee and breathtaking views of Pikes Peak. Breathe crisp and cool air as you take a morning hike or bike through a national landmark - right in your backyard!

Explore Manitou’s unique shopping district, take a sip from one of the nine named mineral springs and stop by the local cafe for a soothing pot of tea. Later, return 'home' to sit on the deck and enjoy the surrounding mountain range and watching the sky turn bright pink and orange at sunset - all while the barbecue heats up for an awesome grilling experience.

Feel like exploring? Experience the Manitou Incline or one of the local hiking and biking trails just minutes away. Enjoy beautiful drives and hiking, tourist stops like the Olympic Training Center, Air Force Academy, Cave of the Winds, and much more. Take the cog-railway, hike, drive, and even run up to the top of the 14,110 foot summit of Pikes Peak! Horseback riding stables are right down the street, golf courses spread throughout the area, and skiing is available within two hours at several places (which are open in the summer for some great mountain biking)!

Shop for antiques and souvenirs in Old Colorado City, at wholesale outlets in Castle Rock and Dillon and at the Shops at Briargate and Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs. Just ten minutes away downtown Colorado Springs has many unique shops. Wine and dine at local micro-breweries such as Manitou Brewing Company and Bristol Brewery.

Take a stroll past millionaire mansions (Cripple Creek Gold) on Wood Avenue and head to The Broadmoor Hotel which is a beautiful site to explore, as are the nearby Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Will Roger’s Shrine, and Seven Falls. As for other museums, the Fine Art’s Center is stocked with art from all over the region and the Pioneer Museum is a fun place to learn Colorado history.

Other nearby attractions include Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, Florissant Fossil Beds, Royal Gorge,Western Mining Museum, Rockledge Ranch (run the old fashioned way with blacksmith, antiques, etc.), regular and fly fishing, gold medal fishing, pay for what you catch fishing, and tons of hiking trails.

Gamblers will want to try their luck at Cripple Creek casinos. Cripple Creek, once a booming mining town, also offers local mine and jeep tours. Attend interesting local events such as: Emma Crawford Coffin Races, Springspree, Donkey Derby Days, Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, the balloon festival, the Pikes Peak Hill Climb Auto Race, etc.

E-mail for more information about the bungalow, local events, or the area - or call us at the number listed below. We are natives of the 'Springs,' and know all the best restaurants and site seeing in the city, and state! We'll help, or not! Just let us know. We’ll keep books and articles about the area in the house, as well as maps for visitors who want to spend a few days driving and exploring ALL of Colorado!

Happy vacationing from our family to yours ~ Karyl, David, Alison, Mike, Owen, & Hilary!
