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!!

3rd time we have been there!

What else can one say? This, what is especially wonderful is the assistance and responsivness of the owner. And as i said in my previous reviews, EVERYTHING WORKS! Can't go wrong with this rental and the near by parking lot (for which the owner provides a parking pass) is closer than most spaces at a motel.

Great little house!

Very clean. Super close to so many fun things. Trouble figuring out the television/remotes. Some instructions would've been helpful.

The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay!! It was so nice to sit outside by the creek. Manitou springs is a great vacation destination.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week in the Little Blue House. One of the first things we noticed is how great the water tasted straight from the tap and cold too. House is very clean and comfortable. It was just the three of us so the size was just right. I wouldn't plan on doing more than 4 people. It is walking distance from anything in town and the arcade was a great thing to do at the end of the day for my daughter. It is close to all the touristy things you want to do and Royal Gorge with River Rafting is a little over an hour drive in Canon City. Some other highlights of the trip are:

Broadmoor Hotel - Have dinner at the Golden Bee.

Cave of the Winds - My ten year old daughter really enjoyed this.

Olympic Training Center - do the VIP is worth it.

Cog Railway - wasn't a big fan of this train ride. we happened to get in seats that faced down the mountain. I was constantly worrying about falling in the lap of the person across from me and I couldn't see anything because of the bulkhead in the middle of car. two thumbs down.

Jake and Telly's in Old Colorado City is really good Greek Food.

Was worried about parking with reading some of the reviews but the owners of the house provide a parking pass for the lot down the street (which is only two houses away) if you can't find anything on the street. We parked in this lot every night and no issues. House has internet and good cable TV for down time and the patio out back is great for just relaxing and listening to the creek.

Car: not necessary

Ideally situated in historic Manitou Springs, you will find yourself easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and amusements of downtown Manitou, including public parks and the town's well-known throwback indoor/outdoor arcade. 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.

You are only a 20-minute drive to downtown Colorado Springs and 20-minutes or less to a surprising number of attractions found on the city's west side including: Garden of the Gods, the United States Air Force Academy, the Broadmoor, Old Colorado City, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and Seven Falls.
