My work career has been spent at many great properties The Broadmoor, Buena Vista Palace, PGA National Resort and Spa, The Breakers and I am still currently working in the hospitality industry. I have decided over the past few years that I want to create a 'special home' and treat it as the best 5 Star/5 Diamond experience for my guests.
CS purchased this House in 2010
Why CS chose Old Colorado City
Colorado's unsurpassed natural beauty surrounds the house and provides endless possibilities for excitement and exploration. Old Colorado City is described as the gateway to the American West, the neighborhood is framed by the picturesque mountains, lush meadows and scenic canyons that have inspired visitors for centuries. Colorado Springs and the cute historic towns offer an inspiring array of outdoor activities that take advantage of the natural beauty of Colorado and caters to guests' and their individual interests.
What makes this House unique
With over 300 days of sunshine each year and virtually no humidity, Colorado Springs provides the perfect backdrop to explore the timeless beauty of the West. Historic Old Colorado City is less than 3 blocks away from the house and less than a 4 minute walk, during the summer every Saturday from 7AM-1:00PM we have a Farmer's Market with local produce, meats, cheese, bread and flowers. Throughout the summer every Thursday at Bancroft Park we have concerts and all summer long we have festivals and a Friday Night Art Walk.

Wonderful Colorado Sprinngs House!
My family and I visited the Springs and stayed at this amazing home! Plenty of space and we had everything we needed. Thanks again!
Peaceful and quiet.
I loved my stay in my little "doll house"! The house was filled with little things to make me feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that I needed to prepare a meal and then sit either outside in the back on the picnic table or on the beautiful front porch. Christine was always available to answer any questions. The location is great too! I highly recommend it! And so does my dog who was more than welcomed to be there!
Great place walking distance to downtown or old Colorado where there is great food breakfast to dinner and great great food not one bad meal we where very impressed grocery story is around the corner liquor same place or go to taverns downtown all pretty much 5 min walk. House is cute and beds are super comfy everything there as far as cooking and everything. One of our friends forgot soap and she has a little bowl of soaps and stuff for those emergencies it’s an awesome place and Christina is awesome to work with. We look forward to staying again . Thank you very much
Wonderful cozy house minutes away from everything!
This rental had everything we could possibly need and more. Christina has really thought of everything and definitely went above and beyond our expectations. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and our dog enjoyed roaming the backyard. The kitchen is so well stocked and we even took advantage of the grill during our stay. There were games, DVDs, softballs, mitts, takeout menus, information pamphlets about the local attractions and even extra doggie bags available for us. Our girls especially loved playing battleship! The house was literally within 15 minutes of most everything we did, right around the corner from a park and a short walk to downtoan! We loved our stay and would highly recommend this rental to friends in the future! Thank you!
Cute house with everything we needed, great location!
This house is adorable, just a few blocks to the downtown area. The house was cozy and had everything we needed for our spring break trip. The fenced in back yard provided privacy and was so convenient for our dogs. We would highly recommend this rental!
Charming home located close to everything
Stayed at the property with my elderly in-laws, husband, teen-aged son & dog. House was perfect for us as it has a downstairs bed and bath so my in-laws did not have to climb the stairs. Living room was roomy with a big sectional, back yard is great, completely fenced with picnic tables and a grill. Overall house was well equipped. Best thing about the rental was the location - a couple of blocks from Main Street Old Town Colorado Springs, a few miles from Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Pikes Peak, and Cave of the Winds. Christina was also quick to respond to questions and accommodating. The next time I am in Colorado Springs I hope to stay in one of her properties again.
