Great Place to Stay!
We loved our stay here! The location was great (right down the road from shops and restaurants). The house was clean and homey and had everything we needed. We would come here again. :)
Great location! Very relaxing!
Enjoyed the convenience of walking to stores and restaurants. Loved the home like feel inside and relaxing outside on the hammock, listening to the creek, and seeing beautiful mountains!
This was absolutely the BEST stay that my wife and I have had in ANY VRBO or AirBNB. Perfect size, location and price. This will be the ONLY place I ever stay in Manitou Springs again. The owner left a recommendation for a restaurant as well as a surprise/gift which was a touch of class you don't often see. I can 100% guarantee that you will enjoy this rental in Manitou Springs.
Great and inviting!
We arrived to find a home that was very inviting. Large enough for us to all have our own space when needed but small enough to spend our vacation together. The back patio was a fantastic place to sit a listen to the running water and relax. It is located within walking distance to all restaurants and shops. We absolutely loved our stay here.
My husband and I where more than pleased!
This place was perfect!!. We highly recommend “The Little Blue House”,we where so impressed! Very comfortable and clean! Walking distance to the shops, restaurants and activities. It was a great home base for us. The Owners where very helpful with their welcome book it came in very handy to get us the lay of the land. We will definitely stay there again on our next adventure to Colorado!
Cozy little home in the perfect location...could not have been happier with our stay!
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!
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
