Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I grew up and went to college in North Dakota. Later I married and moved to Montana where I lived for 24 years where I raised three children. I have always loved the mountains and after my children were grown, I moved here to beautiful Colorado to start an herb and tea company, here in Old Colorado City. Because I prefer moderate weather with the 4 seasons, this area is very attractive. Being family oriented makes running a vacation rental the perfect fit and just adds layers of new friends to a life full of wonderful people. Enjoy your stay and be sure to let me know any way I can make your trip better. Share your experience here with your friends and do come back- Beginning in June of 2013, you will also have access to an on-grounds Tea Shop for enjoying a cup of tea on our store patio or to purchase items to take back home. A natural gas grill on the private front patio is sure to make your stay fun while people watching during your dinner or relaxing times together.

Why the Owner Chose Old Colorado City, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
Of all the areas in Colorado I have chosen, Old Colorado City where I decided to make my retirement. The people are friendly, and living here in this beautiful area, is like living on vacation all the time. So many pass through here and having a local business has made it possible for me to revisit some of the same people coming through every summer. It is a delightful mix of all walks of life and once experienced, something to be appreciated and certainly remembered.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love living on this busy small town street where activities and excitement of all there is to do, happens right out my front door. I can walk to work, walk to dine, walk to walk, enjoying friends and visitors any day of the week. I can pack a lunch and walk through Garden of the Gods Park- just another benefit of living here. Everyone owns a dog, and that says a lot for the just type of people who walk the neighborhoods here, friendly and happy- Being just a few miles to either downtown or Manitou Springs is an ideal setting for a vacation or living in Colorado Springs. Just out the door you can visit Organic Herb & Tea Co, voted "Best of Colorado Springs" 2014
