About Mark Lowenherz

Pardon the corny photo from X-Mas last year at our daughter's house... We have 3 Corgi dogs of our own, all rescued from the Humane Society, and our daughter has a 4th Corgi, also a rescue... We take our 3 pups with us whenever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the many parks in the Colorado Springs area. We have been married for close to 30 years. We lived in New York City for our first 35+ years, and have lived in Colorado for the past 17 years. We love it here! (You will too!)

Mark Lowenherz purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mark Lowenherz chose Southeast Colorado Springs

We lived in downtown Colorado Springs for five years. We had fallen in love with the downtown area when we first moved here and when this unique property came up for sale, we couldn't resist!

What makes this apartment unique

Colorado Springs has many open space areas and parks. We have 3 Corgi dogs (all rescue dogs, adopted at the Colorado Springs Humane Society), and we take them hiking up into the surrounding parks and mountains. We loved being in the heart of all that Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and Manitou have to offer!

Wonderful stay near downtown Colorado Springs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for about 26 days while waiting on a home purchase. It's conveniently located near downtown Colorado Springs, walking distance to some restaurants and a brewery. Overall, a good place to stay. There are window A/C units to provide cooling which was more than adequate in the peak of summer. Mark was very hospitable, easy to get a hold of for questions, and made sure we had everything we needed for the stay - and ensured the gas tank was full on the gas grill outside so we could enjoy some grilling. He also went out of his way to provide a detailed receipt that I needed after the stay.

Great place to stay - Quiet area just off downtown

  • 5 of 5

The upstairs apartment is great for any sort of getaway whether short or long-term. Everything you need to be comfortable. Owner was extremely accommodating and very prompt with any questions asked. The apartment is so close to downtown you won't need a car to get to all the fun, food, and brews.

I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Colorado Springs

Has all the basics at a great location

  • 4 of 5

If your looking for the most trendy place to stay, this is not it, but i has all you need: Bedroom, kitchen, laundry, TV, Internet. The place was very clean and sanitary. (no bed bugs) The furniture and bed was ok. The place is in an old building, so there's no central heating/cooling. Instead, there are A/C and radiator units in each room that do the job. The TV and cable was great. The internet did cut out several times; however, Mike(owner) is very responsive to texts and was able to restart the router-modem(located next door). The washer/dryer combo in the bathroom was very useful and worked great. My only issue was the shower, which is super small (even for a 5'7" person). If you've ever showered in an RV, its just like that - you wont be able to bend down to wash your toes. It also took a while to get hot water, which is understandable due to the age of the building but at least you will eventually be clean. The kitchen comes fully stocked with the basic plates, utensils, pots and pans you will need. The location and parking is awesome: you are centrally located downtown.

really enjoyable & fit our needs perfectly

  • 5 of 5

The property was as was described, and in a very safe quite neighborhood. Everything was in good working order. It is an older 2 bedroom apartment that has been well maintained. We would definitely recommend this property to friends & relatives if you are looking for affordable, good location, and well maintained.

Thanks to Mark Lowenherz

The apartment was clean& comfortable. It was close to all the major places to see in Colorado Springs& close to all the stores& we could walk around which was great! The bathroom is a little small. Besides that, it was nice to have a little balcony. The neighborhood is safe. We had a really nice vacation!

This property is located in the heart of Colorado Springs' Downtown area on a quiet one-way street. It is just a few blocks from all the restaurants, shops, clubs etc that the downtown has to offer. There is a wonderful urban walking park with a lovely creek called Shook's Run Park that you can walk in for miles. It's a short drive to the Garden of the Gods Park and is about a 10-15 minute ride to the Air Force Academy. The house is a 10 minute walk to Colorado College, as well.
