Little Blue House is PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

Very charming and perfect for our family of three while we explored the sights in the area. Having this house within walking distance of all the restaurants and fun in town was great. We will be back!

Comfortable and cute; great location!

Beautiful setting, walking distance to all town services, loved the creek in the back. The house was clean, well appointed and very comfortable. We stayed a week and enjoyed every minute of it.

Perfect Anniversary Haven

  • 5 of 5

The Little Blue House and its owners get our highest rating: A++++

An incredible amount of pre-planning has resulted in the perfect VRBO experience. Everything necessary is provided for an away-from-home stay. The appliances, even the stackable washer/dryer set, are the highest quality. The dark wood (flooring and furniture) throughout the house is gorgeous. The linens are the BEST! The décor is perfect. The interior was spotlessly clean, and the outside (front and back) was beautifully well-groomed. We had great Verizon and internet service throughout the house, so that I could work offsite on my i-Phone (calls, texts, emails) as needed. The welcome letter and the local recommendations were very helpful. We would like to thank the owners! We were blessed to observe our 50th wedding anniversary in this quiet and peaceful haven. God bless you for sharing your home with us.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent at the Little Blue house was wonderful. The house is cozy and comfortable and the owners have thought of everything. Hammock on back patio very relaxing. Walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants and shops. Parking was never a problem - most nights we had nearby street parking. Some trouble with the WiFi but nothing we couldn't resolve using the instructions provided by the owner. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

Great Location and Comfortable Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The location is perfect. You can walk to everything in Manitou, as well as Cog's Railway (it is uphill but if you are reasonably fit-you can do it). There are great restaurants down the street. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen has almost everything you need to cook (would love a 13X9 baking pan and crock pot), the shower is wonderful. The only negative is that the wi-fi went down very often, however if you are on vacation you shouldn't be on the internet right??? We will definitely come back here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Rebecca. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in our little blue house. I took your request to heart & bought a crock pot & a 9x13 baking pan. Thanks for the suggestion. Take care & hope to see you again in the future😊

Great location, close enough to walk to shopping. I was afraid parking would be a problem, but never had any trouble. The house is very nice and well maintained. Anyone would be happy to stay here.

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.

From Downtown ColorAirport: 30 min
