About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath modern house perched above downtown Manitou Springs

Open concept house, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths

This unique modern home is perfect for a relaxing vacation. It is perched above downtown Manitou Springs with partial views of Pikes Peak and a short walk to the heart of downtown Manitou Springs.

The home features a beautiful outdoor patio with a cascading waterfall, an addition completed in 2007 by Elizabeth Wright-Ingrahm, grand-daughter of Frank Lloyd Wright, with a picture window concept, a three story glass window with a passive solar design concept. This architectural wonder is a jewel in the heart of beautiful Manitou Springs.

Overall experience was great, some of the party thought a few of the kitchen items could stand a little upgrade( toaster, range, knives, etc.) Property manager very helpful and willing to do anything to make our stay good. Would stay here again.

The View House is Well-Named!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the View House over Labor Day weekend in Sept. Overlooks Manitou Springs - view is awesome. The back patio with waterfall was the perfect hang-out space for coffee in the morning as well as a drink in the evening. Beds were comfortable and linens were very nice. Kitchen had everything we needed. The house is a very open concept design, so not a whole lot of privacy except in the addition suite. Owner and property manager were very helpful in answering questions and following up to make sure our stay was what we expected. We would stay again!!

Best location in Manitou Springs

  • 5 of 5

The Viewhouse commands a spectacular view of mountains and the town below.

You can walk to town or drive to most attractions in less than 10 min.--- if you can pull yourself away from the house.

The home is an architectural dream and very well appointed with great outdoor areas to relax.

Although central to everything, the house is situated high on a cul-de-sac - quite and private.

Renae and her team are very helpful and made our month long stay very special.

We rent from vrbo often- coast to coast- this is one of the best.

We highly recommend the Viewhouse and it will be our home... no question.. when returning to the area... and we will.

Thanks to Renae and her team

Amazing find in Manitou Springs

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a six night stay at The View House!! The photos do not reflect the true beauty of this home. And the views of downtown Manitou and mountains are jaw dropping. You can see Pike's Peak from the house. When we first pulled up, our family of four (parents + 2 teens) probably spent 10 minutes taking in the amazing views and exterior of the home. Once inside, we were equally impressed. This home has so much to offer and was very well stocked with needed items. This is the first VRBO that actually has laundry and dishwasher supplies on hand, hand soap at every sink and kitchen spices. Usually, we end up making 3 or 4 trips to the store. When you book, keep in mind that this home is a very open concept with only one sleeping space that has a door. Not the best option for families with small children due to the openness and stairs in my opinion so keep that mind if traveling with little ones. The double vanities in the loft and lower bedrooms was an added benefit. This home has been beautifully updated and maintained by the owners. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and nice quality of the bedding and linens. The beds were very comfortable! If you stay in the loft bedroom, sunrise is about 5:15am so you might pack a sleep mask. My husband and I enjoyed having coffee every morning on the patio by the waterfall. My son and husband loved the penny arcade in downtown which is in walking distance on a steep incline just saying;) it was a great way burn off all those extra vacation calories. I would highly recommend this property! We can't wait to go back!!
