This is the ultimate vacation getaway!

Built in 1890, this character house has been completely renovated with a modern and industrial look and feel - come inside to enjoy an awesome combination of woods, metals, and materials.

Walk past the lovely porch swing and into the main level which is well appointed and packed full of memory-making capabilities: large Living Room with entertainment center, full sofa sleeper and large flat screen TV. Game Room with Foosball table and bar top. Den with TV console, board games, books, and 2 twin fold-out beds. The modern kitchen is fully equipped to make cooking at home a pleasurable experience. You'll find stainless steel appliances, glass cook top, oak cabinets, and a large breakfast bar. There are two primary dining areas - one indoors that features quality wood and metal turn-buckles and one outdoors on the brick patio - both of which seat 8.

The upstairs features 3 bedrooms that all include queen size beds with high-end plush mattresses and feature contemporary furniture and fixtures. All bedrooms are unique in character (2 of which have window seats) and all feature angled ceiling and built-in charm. Both full bathrooms in the upstairs are quite unique - one features a rain shower and pedestal sink while the other has a wonderful original cast iron soaking tub (with bamboo wine & book caddie!).

The primary feature of this home and the namesake of the property is a one-of-a-kind ‘Eagles Nest’. Pull down the ladder from the upstairs ceiling and you’ll climb up into a glass enclosed observation tower full of windows and accompanying seating area where you have a perfect vantage point of Pikes Peak and downtown Colorado Springs. Open the sliding door from the Eagles Nest and you can enjoy the outdoor tiled patio with wonderful teak Adirondack Chair, foot lounger, and side table.

This charming home was designed for your vacationing pleasure. Located in the heart of downtown yet set aside in a quiet neighborhood, you can walk to all the best shopping, restaurants, and events in Colorado Springs in 5 minutes, including close proximity to Colorado College, the Pikes Peak Center and the Fine Arts Center. Plus+ there is a wonderful park, playground and creek less than 1 minute away. You can even walk the bike path to an awesome coffee shop! The drive to Old Colorado City is 10 minutes or Manitou Springs is 15 minutes. Plus we're just blocks away from the Olympic Training Center if you're coming in for an athletic event.

We maintain our online calendar with 100% accuracy, please reference this for availability.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This place is very clean and in a great central location. We had a great stay in Colorado Springs. The only drawbacks were lack of large cooking pans and no wifi. We had the house filled to capacity (10) and it was impossible to make a meal for 10 with the pans provided without using several pans for one dish!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for sharing your lovely home and providing us with a home away from home! The home was what was expected from your information given. We are first time vacationers to Colorado from Texas so I was worried I with the weather. Your home kept us very warm. My kids enjoyed the comfort of your entertainment rooms. The climate here made it difficult to breathe so I recommend anyone keep an open mind to this. We loved visiting Pikes peak, Garden of Gods, Mueller Park, and the trip to Breckenridge, and Keystone! We will definitely be back! My husband and myself agree to look you up and request your home anytime we come here! Thank you very much!

Quaint location with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVES this home. So much in fact that we are excited to have booked another stay later this month! Between a great, central location and great on-site offerings (pack & play, foosball table and well stocked kitchen), our stay was extra-ordinary. Thank you for hosting our short visit to see family in the area. See you again during the holidays!
