Cozy little home in the perfect location...could not have been happier with our stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home...the house was very comfortable and beautifully appointed...we had everything we needed for a nice long weekend. The location was perfect for exploring the area...within walking distance of many interesting little shops and restaurants and just a short drive to all of the attractions in/near Colorado Springs. The back patio was absolutely wonderful for sitting outside and enjoying a break from all of our running around...the sound of the creek rushing by was very relaxing and could even be heard from the bedroom at night. I could go on and on about how much we loved our stay here....it really was the highlight of our trip.

There was only one thing that I can mention that wasn't perfect...the mattress on the sofa sleeper was thin and very uncomfortable...all of the metal support bars could be felt through it and it was too painful to sleep on no matter what position I tried...it was also very noisy each time I tried to re-position. Ended up just sleeping on the couch after the first restless night...but my mom and niece were very comfy in the king bed. :) Likely not an issue if you don't need the extra bed for an adult, but if you do, you'll definitely want some extra padding (children may not even notice or might be able to lay sideways). I really can't think of anything else that wasn't great about our stay here...we loved it and are so glad we found this place! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: We're extremely sorry that you had a bad experience with the sleeper sofa, Melissa. We're also grateful for your honesty - this will definitely spur us to upgrade the sofa mattresses in both properties that we manage. If you should decide to stay with us again sometime, please mention something to me and we'll discount your rate. Thanks again! --- the Pruitt Family

Nice little one bedroom house.....

  • 4 of 5

We spent 7 days at the little blue house. The furnishings were up to date and very comfortable. Downtown Manitou is just a few minutes walk. Owners were very helpful with suggestions on where to eat and other activities. Overall we had a very nice stay and this will be one of the places we concider when we return.... The only real drawback is that parking could be challenging during peak times.....

PERFECT - A SPOT OF HEAVEN IN A GORGEOUS TOWN

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. The photos do not do it justice. The kitchen is completely stocked and fully functional. The grill outside has propane and ready for action. The back porch/deck is lovely. It was the perfect place to unwind. Large, beautiful trees with a creek made it one of our favorite spots to plan our day and unwind each evening. The living room and bedroom are large and very comfortable. The king bed was very comfortable. The location is great. Walking distance to the shops and eating spots. And just minutes away from Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, etc. We are counting the days until we can return. i can't end this review without talking about the owners. They are amazing. Greg is wonderful and really went out of his way to make this trip happen for us. And Melinda is amazing. We called with an issue on the TV setup and it was addressed immediately, She called back the next day just to make sure everything was OK. I left my tablet behind and she went out of her way to make sure it was returned to me. She is so kind and gracious - I feel like we are old friends.

The house was very cozy and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Little Blue House On The Creek! It was perfect for two people. We loved sitting on the back patio and listening to the creek rushing by...so relaxing. The house was in walking distance to the historic part of town and we walked through town everyday. I highly recommend staying here and we are planning to return again the next time we are in Manitou!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Little Blue House on the Creek for our 29th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time! This vacation home was decorated by someone with an eye for detail. The color scheme flows perfectly from room to room, and the furniture is so comfy that it beckons you to come relax by the fire at the end of the day. But wait, that sound is.....yes, a mountain stream flowing past the rocks and trees right off the back patio. This spot was one of our favorites, and as you sit by the stream, look over your shoulder to the mountains peeking their heads out as if to say, "Come take a drive through the mountains tomorrow."...and that is exactly what we did. This home is the perfect way to truly enjoy the flavor of Manitou Springs, Colorado. We have vacationed in Manitou many times, and this home is perfectly situated for walking to the fun shops and excellent restaurants. Thank you to the folks at the Little Blue House on the Creek. We took notice of the care that was put into making this the perfect Manitou Vacation Home.

Cute house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé, and I, loved our stay at the little blue house! Street parking can be hard to find, but there was a public parking lot nearby that was perfect. Near enough to carry luggage back and forth. The place itself is awesome! Everything we needed, cute, and cozy! It is located within easy walking distance of all the shops! If you are interested in hiking, it is within walking distance of several trails. We walked everywhere during our stay, so this location was ideal! Step outside the back door of the house and there is a private patio next to the creek. The lovely sound of the creek rushing by is great for relaxing after a long day of hiking and shopping! The owners were great to communicate with, answering all our questions and making sure our stay was enjoyable! We highly recommend this place to others!!

You'll also be foot-travel distance to the famous Cog Railway and numerous hiking & biking trails including the Manitou Incline, Barr Trail, Inteman Trail and others.
