Although built in 1872, we fully restored our Victorian from 1977-79 so it offers turn of the century charm with modern conveniences.

Located within blocks of Hwy 24 and within minutes for I-25 it is an easy drive to over 25 local attractions, including Garden of the Gods, USAFA, Cheyenne Mtn.

The Victorian is 3,200 sq ft and located at 109 Pawnee Avenue in Manitou Springs, CO 80829.

It has a gas grill with granite countertops, gas fireplace with outdoor dining area, a water feature, seating for up to 50 people, A gazebo and the original Manitou Jail with a ping pong table, half basketball court, lawn for croquet and horse shoe pit. New, this year are a children’s play set and six adult bikes, three children’s bikes and a child’s trailer for the local bike paths. (Bikes must be reserved in advance.)

Spacious Updated Victorian in the Heart of Manitou springs

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed the spacious well maintained property, and was consistent with the descriptions and photos, and indeed right in the middle of Manitou springs with all its amenities, shopping, parks, toutist activities. It was not air conditioned when we arrived, pending repairs, the owner did tell us about it, she was gracious and helpful. Even more when she spontaneously and generously compensated us when the Waldo Canyon fire forced us to evacuate in the middle of our contracted rental period.

A great choice for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house worked very well for our family reunion of 9 adults and one child (and, could have accommodated our additional 2+1 that had to cancel at the last minute). Five bedrooms on the first and second floor are very comfortable; the one in the alcove leading to the third-floor stairs lacks privacy, and was not the first choice for our members. Four more beds in the attic are tucked under the eaves, so best for kids...but are accessed by a very steep staircase. Communal spaces inside and out are great; in particular the outdoor patio area is spectacular, we spent LOTS of time out there. A short walk down the hill takes you into Manitou Springs for restaurants/shopping/wandering; head uphill and you find a trailhead with access to a vast trail system. My 85-year old dad appreciated the back entrance that avoided the front steps; though the hike uphill from downtown was not his favorite!

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with family. The house was very fitting to our needs and the yard was wonderful. There were 16 of us that stayed there---11 adults (ages 21-80) and 5 kids (ages 1 month to 14 yrs). It worked well with the large table for all to eat at in the greenhouse and play cards. The outside patio area was great with the beautiful weather. Definitely a memorable trip for all as we celebrated my dad's 80th birthday. Thank you so much!

Trimble Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 31 spent a week in Manitou Springs and 16 of us stayed in this house. This was a great place for a large family or group and a perfect location to all of the attractions.

Joanne was very accommodating and easy to work with. She always responded to my many questions before we arrived in a very timely manner.

While we were in Manitou, we celebrating our dad's 80th birthday. We had a great time and would highly recommend this property and can't wait for our next trip to Colorado.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 adults and 3 children ranging in age from 2 to 6 years old all had a wonderful stay at this house. Within a couple of days I found myself referring to the house as "home" whenever we were away doing various activities. We had an issue with internet connection and needing more supplies such as bathroom tissue which was handled promptly by the owners. This is a great place to stay for larger groups. We ended up having two extra rooms that weren't used. The third floor is a cute get away for the children but was slightly more difficult to access due to a steep set up stairs but we didn't have any major issues utilizing the stairs as needed. I would recommend that the owners add locks to all bathroom doors in the future to ensure privacy while using the restrooms as currently only about half have locks. The outside area had seating for our large group with plenty to spare. We enjoyed the outside fire place very much at night. I would definitely recommend this home for anyone's stay in the future. If we vacation in Manitou Springs in the future this would be my choice of location to stay. The feeling was quite homey without the commercial feel of staying at a hotel.

Great place to stay In Manitou

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Manitou Springs and this property was perfectly suited to the large group of people that we had. The location to all of the things to see and do in the Pikes Peak region was unbeatable! It is so close to many things that we were able to do more than one thing per day. The home itself had many great features with plenty of room and the back yard and patio were a great place to escape. In the six days we were able to see Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak via the cog, Cave of the winds, Cliff Dwellings, Seven Falls, Royal Gorge, Cripple creek ( Must See!! Molly Kathleen Gold Mine ), North Pole and of course many trips into downtown Manitou. Yet we still had time for a little golf, fishing and hiking. LOVED IT!
