Beautiful views and great getaway !

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful and beautiful home. It has great views and allows for privacy. We enjoyed the walk into town and the local food shops. The owner is attentive and very nice. We stayed here for Thanksgiving to visit our son in the Army. Had a great time and loved the area. You will not be disappointed with this rental. We loved it and had a great time.

Amazing home and views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. We loved this home so much, we hated leaving it to go on our explorations! Sitting on the porch in the late afternoons reading a good book, sipping a glass of wine, and admiring the amazing view and the fall colors is one of life's biggest/simplest pleasures! One thing that is especially nice is the 5 minute walk to the main avenue in town, which we did every morning. We will definitely rent this home again if available!

P.S. To Owners: It didn't affect our stay, but we weren't able to use the door code to open the garage.

We were close to lots of great dining in Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs. And one our favorite areas to eat in, Old Colorado City. The house was perfect for us! Bedrooms were comfortable. Kitchen was great to cook in and fix meals! Close to all the sights we wanted to see. Views spectacular for viewing Fall colors! 😊?❤️

Peaceful retreat with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We came to Manitou Springs (5 of us) for a long weekend to celebrate the girls' birthdays, wanting an escape from the lingering summer of Houston, and experience the fresh air and great outdoors of Colorado during peak foliage. There is so much to do nearby, and we enjoyed so much of it: hiking the Seven Falls, riding the cog rail to Pikes Peak, walking through the Garden of the Gods, exploring Cave of the Winds, experiencing the Terror Dactyl (what a thrill!!!), and more.

The house was the perfect base for our trip. We started each day with coffee, breakfast, and panoramic views downwards to Manitou Springs, and upwards towards Pikes Peak. We relaxed as we watched the sunrise, first lighting the mountain tops, and gradually lighting the valley. We returned during the day between activities for lunch and/or change. After dinner, we unwound together in the main room and shared our highlights from the day and what we wanted to do next.

The house was perfect. Aside from the fantastic views (which just cannot be exaggerated), the house had everything we needed and wanted to be comfortable. The main room / kitchen space was large enough for us all to be together comfortably. The focal point was the large window overlooking the valley. The three bedrooms each had the same amazing view and comfortable beds.
