Welcome to our mountain getaway retreat in the city, located in beautiful, safe Cheyenne Canyon, just 5 blocks from the historic Broadmoor Hotel!! This is a unique area within Colorado Springs, because it is in the heart of nature, where you can see wildlife (deer, foxes, and bear) and truly experience Colorado's rugged outdoors. It is nothing like staying in a city. Although we are less than ten minutes from downtown, we are worlds apart.

This light, bright 900 square foot two bedroom getaway borders miles of parks and open spaces. It is the perfect spot from which to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! 'The Canyon' was a small sleepy resort community in years gone by, one of only two canyons in Colorado Springs, The homes were mostly built in the 1920's and 1930's and were bungalows and cottages. As the years passed and people discovered this oasis, more homes were built.
This attached house was built in 1963 and it shares its back wall with another house but there is more privacy because it is not built side by side, but is front to back... It is located on Cheyenne Blvd which dead ends into Cheyenne Canyon park. It has mainly tourist and local traffic, (a bit more during the day on the weekends), so you may hear cars going by, but its pretty quiet at night... The house is located above the 2 garages, which are only used for storage. The front door is located up a flight of outside cement stairs.
Our house has two bedrooms. One has a king sized bed and the other has a queen bed. There is a trundle bed in the living room which pulls out to 2 twin beds if you need them, so we can accomodate 6 people in beds.
There is a new 22 flat screen television in the bedroom with the King bed and there is a 40' Flat Screen HD TV in the Living room. All TVs have full cable TV service. We are also set up for fast wireless internet access so you can sit outside and surf the web.
The decor is contemporary with earth tone walls and oak hardwood floors throughout (no carpeting at all). There is a full eat-in kitchen with an oak table and chairs, linoleum floors, electric stove and a dishwasher. There are air-conditioners in both bedrooms and the living room (which cool the whole place), but summer evenings in Colorado tend to be cooler, so it cools down beautifully at night.
The property is stocked with many extra amenities including spices, paper towels, trash bags, dishwashing detergent, laundry soap and even baggies and aluminum foil. We try to only use natural cleaning products. No chemicals.
There is a small, balcony area off the kitchen looking west over Cheyenne Blvd towards trees & mountains. Directly below the balcony is a dirt driveway leading to a small enclave of properties. The balcony has a gas barbeque, as well as a small patio table and chairs for Al Fresco dining. This is the only outside area, as there is no yard..
The property is a short two block walk farther into the canyon to the Stratton Open Space Preserve where you can walk on miles of trails,enjoy wonderful hiking, biking and exploring. Walking westward towards the mountains along Cheyenne Blvd, is a lovely coffee shop, a nice place to stop for a capuccino or mocha before continuing on into Cheyenne Canyon Park and the Starsmore Discovery center (an educational nature center, great for children of all ages), with miles of hikes along Cheyenne Creek. If you drive into the canyon, the beauty will astound you! Seven Falls and Helen Hunt Falls are located right down the road a bit deeper into Cheyenne Canyon and both are incredibly beautiful For a shot of old world elegance, walk to the five star Broadmoor hotel, an historic resort that is a wonderful place to go for a drink or a meal or just to walk around the gorgeous grounds! (pups welcome on the grounds)
We are less than ten minutes from historic Old Colorado City and fifteen minutes from exciting Manitou Springs with their wonderful restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and galleries. Garden of the Gods park, with its exquisite red rock formations, is a must see and it is less than 10 minutes away with a fantastic visitor's center. Downtown Colorado Springs is just a hop, skip and jump away, as well... The Air Force Academy is about 25 minutes north of us, and Colorado College is about 10 minutes away in the downtown area. The Olympic Training Center is east of us and less than a fifteen minute drive.
Bear Creek Dog Park and Bear Creek Nature Center are less than 10 minutes down the road, and are wonderful places to take the kids! There is also a beautiful zoo less than 10 minutes away. There are many fabulous day trips less than 2 hours from us, including the drive up Pikes Peak, marveling at the Royal Gorge, rafting on the Arkansas river, soaking in hotsprings, exploring Cave of the Winds, and visiting the Cliff-dwelling museum, all great entertainment for kids.
