What a wonderful location to stay while in Colorado Springs! 06/22/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:

It’s no secret that bears love the outdoors, and I can’t think of a better location than Colorado Springs to experience the raw beauty of America. I have been known to stay in a mountain den, but for this trip I wanted the whole house to stretch my legs and let the cub have a private bedroom. I felt extra warm and fuzzy when I found a cute Victorian style home in the Old Colorado City historic district, the perfect home base for a trip to Colorado Springs. The house is a short walk to breakfast, lunch, and dinner restaurants on Colorado Avenue. I especially enjoyed Mountain Shadows Restaurant for a hearty breakfast and Dat’s Italian for an authentic New York style Italian dinner. After breakfast, stop by Mountain Mama’s Natural Foods for healthy hiking snacks including gluten-free and paleo options. The neighborhood is so peaceful and relaxing that a deer chose the neighbor’s back yard to bring two fawns into the world on the first morning of our stay. Who needs cable TV and Wi-Fi when you can watch a fawn taking its first steps? The house has everything you need if you want to cook for yourself including modern appliances. The back yard is perfect for grilling and relaxing if you are in the mood. Mama Bear loved the soaking tub after hiking Barr Trail. Little Bear loved the Cog Railway and especially the donuts and hot chocolate at the Summit House. A cozy Victorian style house feels just right after taking in the nourishing beauty of the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak. Katharine Lee Bates wrote a poetic review of Colorado Springs over 100 years ago that perfectly captures the beauty and emotion experienced by travelers then and now. Colorado Springs is truly America the Beautiful!

About the owner: My work career has been spent at many great properties throughout the country, the Buena Vista Palace, PGA National Resort and Spa, The Breakers and I am still currently working in the hospitality industry.

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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
