About the Property

Sleep Four In This 2bd/1ba On Main Level Of A Restored Brick Victorian.

NOTE: In case you're seeing double listings for this property - I have begun to migrate this property to another listing on HomeAway/VRBO managed by a company (Evolve) to free up some of my time when it comes to handling bookings - feel free to book through them if you run across their version of the listing. (I can't point you to it as they think I'm trying to "get around" their policies and contact you directly) The other listing through Evolve will cost slightly less than though this listing (part of the agreement) I will happily accept bookings here if you feel more comfortable with dealing with me directly. Eventually if their booking management works well, I will delist this to ease any confusion. - Tim

This beautiful Victorian is located in a charming westside neighborhood just 10 minutes walk from downtown - straight over the new Bijou Street bridge. 2 bedrooms, antique/period furniture, fully supplied with linens and kitchen goods.

Centrally located with easy access to I-25 and downtown, walk or bike trails minutes to downtown, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs, Colorado College. Drive to Ft Carson, the Air Force Academy, Airport (COS). Three blocks to local bus stop and Denver (DIA) shuttle pickup/dropoff.

It's a short drive to Pikes Peak and up the pass 15 minutes to the mountains via Woodland Park.
Centrally located; walk or bike or drive around town.

You will stay on the main floor of my lovely 2 story brick Victorian just blocks west of downtown Colorado Springs. Centrally located with easy access to I-25 and walkable (10 min) to downtown, minutes to Old Colorado City, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak and up the pass 15 minutes to the mountains via Woodland Park.

This is a 2 bedroom / 1 bath rental that accommodates 4 guests. The house has been updated while retaining its turn of the century charm. Enjoy a queen bed in the master bedroom and have plenty of room for your clothes in the 6 foot wardrobe and several drawers in the dresser. The 2nd bedroom is furnished with antique full size 4 poster bed and an EastLake bureau with mirror and marble accent.

The living room and dining room have beautiful period and craftsman furnishings, the bathroom has a six foot Victorian claw-foot tub with a 2-headed shower. The bathroom has just been re-tiled with octagonal white tile with black accents.

The kitchen has been remodeled and features period appliances and 'old-time' feel. Even a chef will be comfortable in the kitchen. I use cast iron and anodized aluminum chef-ware, porcelain dishes (some plastic too - for kids cereal, etc), high quality flatware, wine and beer glasses, spices, and the pantry has a full set of basics for cooking as well. You only need bring your food and any specialty spices for a meal, perishables, etc.

This isn't a sterile condo rental - your stay is in a beautifully furnished period home with everything you should need except your personals. Outside, the front porch has two comfortable chairs that look out on a xeriscaped garden. Out in the fenced back yard are a propane grill and smoker, and a Weber charcoal grill, garden chairs around a fire pit, pond and waterfall. Parking is in front, or we can make gated parking in the back available.

See my other property in Flagstaff AZ -- for the last 8 years it has had nothing but top reviews on HomeAway - over 40 total 5 star reviews. I am bringing the same attention to detail and quality to this property.
