About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)
This light, bright one bedroom cottage is the perfect spot from which to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! It has classic Victorian 10 foot ceilings, wood floors throughout (no carpeting) and although it is 750 cozy square feet, it has a very open, spacious feeling.
The cottage is located on a quiet, one way, non-through street so there is not very much traffic and easy on street parking is always available.
The bedroom has a queen sized thick, comfy mattress. We also have a pullout couch that opens into a fullsize bed. At times, we have also provided a cot or two for kids, so we can accomodate up to five or six people.
The property has a mix of contemporary furnishings with a splash of antiques. The living room has an antique armoire for hanging your clothes, as well as a smaller closet in the bedroom. There are new sofas in the living room and the dining room. There is a dining room set that seats four.
There is a flat screen 22' television in the bedroom and there is a 42' Flat Screen TV in the Livingroom. Both TVs have full cable TV service. We are also set up with fast wireless internet access so you can surf the web.
There is a fully stocked kitchen, complete with many extra amenities such as paper towels, napkins, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, spices, baggies, and garbage bags! There are air-conditioners in the bedroom and the living room (which cool the whole place). This year, we just replaced most of the windows.
The nice size kitchen has a pantry, as well as a dishwasher and washing machine and drier, but note, it is not an eat in kitchen.
The small bathroom consists of a clawfoot tub (with shower), a small sink and a toilet. It's a little tight but is quite functional.
The small (approximately 10 feet by 20 feet) fenced in back yard area has a gas barbeque, as well as a patio table and chairs on the small covered porch for al fresco dining. It has a mini-view of Pikes Peak. There is a chain link fence in the back yard with an empty lot behind it. This is an urban yard that isn't landscaped. Because there are no neighbors behind you, it's pretty quiet.
From our cottage, you can walk to downtown boutiques, restaurants, clubs, and antique shops. We are also less than ten minutes from historic Old Colorado City. We are less than fifteen minutes from exciting Manitou Springs with its famous free natural underground soda springs, its 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 15 minutes away with a fantastic visitor's center. The Broadmoor Hotel is just a hop, skip and jump away, as well, less than 15 minutes... The Air Force Academy is about 15 minutes north of us, and Colorado College is about 15 blocks away. The Olympic Training Center is east of us and less than a five minute drive.
Bear Creek Dog Park and Bear Creek Nature Center are less than 10 minutes west, and are wonderful places to take the kids! There is also a beautiful mountain zoo less than 15 minutes away. There are many fabulous day trips less than 2 hours from us, including the drive up Pikes Peak, marvelling 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.
We allow dogs, but please let us know if your dog has separation anxiety and it will need a kennel and we will try to accomodate your pooch.

About the owner: We have 2 Corgi dogs of our own, all rescued from the Humane Society... We take our 2 pups with us whenever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the many parks in the Colorado Springs area. We have been married for over 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 Southeast Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
We lived in downtown Colorado Springs for five years. We had fallen in love with the downtown area when we first moved here and when this unique property came up for sale, we couldn't resist!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Colorado Springs has many open space areas and parks. We have 2 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 loved being in the heart of all that Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and Manitou have to offer!
