About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
This 2100 square foot three bedroom, two and a half bath house is on a private, parklike wooded acre with a pond that has a small island in the middle of it. The house is set back 150 feet and is barely visible from the road. It sits up 14 steps which makes you feel that you are in a tree house looking into the tree canopy with lots of privacy. This setting is the front yard. The large windows give the three level house a light, bright 'indoor/outdoor' feeling. Don't like climbing 14 steps? Don't worry, there is a 2nd driveway from the back that's on the level of the house. There is wonderful stone terracing all around the front and side of the house.
Our house was built in 1919 and was one of the first homes in the canyon when everything was wild open spaces... It was used as a rooming house by cattlemen who would water their horses at the pond. Today, we are walking distance to miles of parks and open spaces. It is the perfect spot to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! .
The house has three bedrooms. One, on the first floor, another downstairs and another upstairs. On the first floor is the master bedroom suite with a king sized bed. The master bathroom has a 5 foot marble shower and an antique pedestal tub. There is also a dressing room with a washer/dryer. The upstairs has built in cupboards and nooks and crannies (very hobbit-like) and there are 2 twin beds and a full size bed (on the floor due to dormered ceilings.) The upstairs area has a 3/4 bath with a 24' by 36' sit-down shower. (Kids love it!) You'll have to watch your head going up the stairs... Low Bridge! Downstairs in the lower level is a 20X20 3rd bedroom with laminate floors, a king-sized walnut bedroom set and an additional pull-out twin bed and woodburning fire place. There aren't any openable windows in this bedroom but it is naturally cool and fully airconditioned, as well. There is a 1/2 bath at the top of the stairs from the lower level bedroom, right near the kitchen.
The house has oak and fir wood floors all throughout the 1st floor. There is a gorgeous, fully stocked eat-in kitchen with granite counters, a gas Jenn-Aire range and Jenn-Aire oven, and a Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen is in the oldest part of the house, so the ceilings are low, giving a very cozy feeling... There is everything you could need for a fun vacation! There are new air-conditioners in the bedrooms and the living room (which cool the whole place), but summer evenings in Colorado tend to be cooler, so it cools down beautifully at night. Just open the windows.
This inviting property is furnished with very comfy sofas in the living room, which has a wonderful wood-burning fireplace. There are new flat screen TVs in each bedroom and there is also a 46' Flat Screen HD LCD TV in the Livingroom. All TVs have full cable TV service. We are also set up for wireless internet access so you can sit outside in the parklike setting and surf the web..
The back yard is huge with a gas barbeque, as well as a deck and patio tables and chairs for al fresco dining.
We are a short walk to the Stratton Open Space Preserve where you can walk on miles of trails,enjoy wonderful hiking, biking and exploring. Walking westward towards the mountains along Cheyenne Blvd, is a lovely coffee shop, a nice place to stop for a capuccino or mocha before continuing on into Cheyenne Canyon Park and the Starsmore Discovery center (an educational nature center, great for children of all ages), with miles of hikes along Cheyenne Creek. If you drive into the canyon, the beauty will astound you! Seven Falls and Helen Hunt Falls are located right down the road a bit deeper into Cheyenne Canyon and both are incredibly beautiful. For a shot of old world elegance, walk to the five star Broadmoor hotel, an historic resort that is a wonderful place to go for a drink or a meal or just to walk around the gorgeous grounds and lake! (pups welcome on the grounds)
We allow pets... Let us know if for some reason you need a kennel or help with your pet during your stay and we will try to accomodate your pooch.
We are less than ten minutes from historic Old Colorado City and fifteen minutes from exciting Manitou Springs with their wonderful restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and galleries. Garden of the Gods park, with its exquisite red rock formations, is a must see and it is less than 10 minutes away with a fantastic visitor's center. Downtown Colorado Springs is just a hop, skip and jump away, as well... The Air Force Academy is about 25 minutes north of us, and Colorado College is about 10 minutes away in the downtown area. The Olympic Training Center is east of us and less than a fifteen minute drive.
There is a wonderful mountain zoo less than 10 minutes away. There are many fabulous day trips less than 2 hours from us, including the drive up Pikes Peak, marvellilng at the Royal Gorge, rafting on the Arkansas river, soaking in hotsprings, exploring Cave of the Winds, and visiting the Cliff-dwelling museum, all great entertainment for kids.

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Pardon the corny photo from X-Mas last year at our daughter's house... We have 3 Corgi dogs of our own, all rescued from the Humane Society, and our daughter has a 4th Corgi, also a rescue... We take our 3 pups with us where-ever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the Cheyenne Canyon area. We have been married for close to 30 years. We lived in New York City for our first 35+ years, and have lived in Colorado for the past 20 years. We love it here! (You will too!)
Why the Owner Chose Cheyenne Canyon, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
We purchased this wonderful property to live in and we do, whenever it's not taken by one of our guests. It has always been our country getaway right in the city. We had fallen in love with Cheyenne Canyon park and its miles and miles of hiking and biking trails and when this property came up for sale, we couldn't resist! It's one of the 3 or 4 largest lots in the canyon and is truly like staying in paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This canyon is surrounded by open spaces. We have 3 Corgi dogs (all rescue dogs, adopted at the Colorado Springs Humane Society), and we take them hiking up into the surrounding parks and mountains. We love the proximity to all that Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and Manitou have to offer, yet feel as though we are living in a mountain getaway, miles from civilization! We frequently see deer, foxes, raccoons and even occasional ducks on the pond when we are sitting on the porch or even just looking out our living room window. We hope you will love it as much as we do!
