Very cute house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is extremely cute and in such a great location to be able to walk and/or take the free shuttle to anywhere you need to go in Manitou Springs. The house is cozy and fit 5 adults comfortably. There isn't much privacy in the upper bedroom, but the queen bedroom offered some. Both beds were firm memory foam mattresses and easy to sleep on.

The backyard was amazing for this trip. Being able to see the stars at night and beautiful wildlife in the morning was great. Overall, very nice house with a great location. Owners also seemed extremely nice and the reviews and guestbook had a cute B&B feel.

Best part was LOCATION.

  • 4 of 5

We had a 5 night stay. The location was the absolute best part. We were able to walk anywhere in town from the house. If you have to drive, pay attention to parking prices, they are crazy expensive. Pikes Peak is just up the road along w/Manitou Incline and Garden of the Gods is a short drive. If you are traveling w/children, it is an old house that has old wooden loud floors. The downstairs bath has a super small toilet area and a shower that is extremely difficult to even bend to wash legs/feet. So, if you are a L/XL, plan to use the upstairs bathroom. The master upstairs is very nice and bed was great! The downstairs bed was comfortable, but firm. The only table seating are stools, but nicely padded. The amount of mule deer that pass through the front yard in the morning is amazing! Relaxing on the front porch or backyard is soooo nice.

Note to owner:

The downstairs bedroom could really use new sheets and pillows. Knife set needs sharpening. There was a lightbulb out in kitchen, but not so annoying to have to call someone. One of the limbs in front yard is resting on power/phone line coming to house. Main screen door could use a rubber grommet to keep it from slamming. Return vent and toilet exhaust fans need dusting.

Cute and quaint house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our time in this little house. Its perfect in every way! We enjoyed our coffee on the front porch, but the backyard was amazing as well. The house was well equipped with coffee needs, too! I thought the owners are smart for supplying some of the items like adequate amount of toilet tissue, paper towels, coffee needs, etc.

The home is an easy walk to downtown Manitou Springs. We enjoyed breakfast at Good Karma, a beer at The Keg (thank you again for the certificate) twice, dinner/beer at the Manitou Brewing, wine at Swirl, and tasting the spring water! If we ever go back to Manitou, I would definitely check into staying here again. Oh and we saw deer coming down the street!

Thank you for sharing your house rental!

TRULY "Home Sweet Home"

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Manitou Springs at "Home Sweet Home" was amazing!!! While we found many exciting and awe inspiring things to do in the gorgeous Colorado environment, we also found the house welcoming and comfortable so much so that we couldn't wait to return each day. After busy mornings of various activities or sightseeing, we enjoyed relaxing on the front porch to discover the rhythm of the neighborhood.

We most definitely would love to be repeat guests at this home and intend to promote it highly to friends and family.

Can't thank you enough for making your home the highlight of our seven days in Manitou Springs!

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.
