Beautiful home with all your need in the home & within walking distance in a perfect little town

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home inside and out, had everything you could ever need in the kitchen and everywhere else, extremely comfortable beds, perfect location, deer frequented the front and back yards. Can't ask for much more! The owners were always accessible and offered many suggestions on places to eat and things to do...AND kind enough to leave us a gift certificate for one of the local bar/restaurants, the keg. Will gladly return for another trip, thank you so much for everything!!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Home Sweet Home was wonderful. The house was so warm and inviting and had everything we needed. The owners paid attention to all the extra details to ensure our stay was comfortable. From the Keurig coffee to the guestbook with all the tips and information on things to do while we were there. We have a 2 year old and a 5 year old and the kids loved the house. They had so much fun playing together. Our 5 year old daughter was so excited upon arrival that she immediately claimed the upstairs bedroom hers! The backyard was lovely and the view was magnificent. It was great being able to walk to town for dinners and shopping. We would definitely recommend this house. You won't regret it.

My Family LOVED This Rental House (and Owner)!!

  • 5 of 5

This "Home Sweet Home" rental home is absolutely wonderful. It exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful, the renovations are tasteful and extremely functional, the bedrooms large and luxurious, the kitchen was appointed with new appliances, great dishes, and useful items like a blender and great knives. The upstairs bed/mattress is heaven. You'll be impressed by the small details (light switch labels, new dishes, new sheets, lots of high end towels, working WiFi, newish washer/dryer). We drank coffee in the mornings on the front veranda, and wine in the afternoons on the back terraced decks. It's walking distance to downtown Manitou and the Sunwater Spa (hot tubs). The driveway is large enough to accommodate multiple cars, so you don't have to park on the street. You'll love it. We had the opportunity to meet the owner - she's lovely and very helpful. All communications about the booking, payment, etc were smooth and professional. We will definitely stay in this home again. Enjoy!

Perfect Colorado Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home to host some friends from out of town and they loved it! The home is as represented, a charming, cozy Victorian cottage just a short walk from downtown Manitou Springs. The home was clean and well stocked, and the owners were friendly and accommodating. We loved the mountain views from the back deck. Perfect!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a quaint home well-situated within walking distance to downtown Manitou Springs. The property was just as described in the listing. The upstairs master bedroom was a pleasant surprise. The kitchen was well -equipped. The beds were warm and cozy. We had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. There was a binder with recommendations for local attractions and restaurants. A tray of fresh-baked cookies greeted us on arrival. The owners even checked on us during a snow storm to make sure everything was OK and to see if we needed anything. Would definitely stay here again.

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.
