Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure where to start with this other than to say it was absolutely perfect. The house is beautiful inside and out. Great furnishings and amenities. When we opened the door, we were amazed at the interior. Though we didn't cook, the kitchen was well-equipped. The accommodations couldn't have been better. As the description says, the house is close to everything. The owner, Phil, called us twice before we arrived to give us information and to give us tips on what to do. Very nice guy! We can't wait to go back! Randy

Cute as can be perfect location cozy little house

  • 5 of 5

Went to Cripple Creek for the weekend with 3 other ladies. The town is so quant and quiet with donkeys walking along the sidewalks, the stores and casinos are clean and so much fun. This home had every single thing we needed and or wanted. Place to park, full kitchen, dining room living room with tv, 2 bedroom 1 bathroom with washer and dryer. Back yard is adorable and front porch was a great place to have morning coffee. Home was exactly as advertised only better. We had a great time in town and was such a perfect place to end the day. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommend to anyone for a perfect getaway. Phil and Vicky were the best checked with us to make certain all was well.

Excellent and exactly better than it was advertised

  • 5 of 5

The Palmers are the nicest folks I have ever dealt with while renting online. Their home is super cozy and Cripple Creek is a very cute town to visit. Everyone is so friendly. Their home is very cozy and has everything you could imagine for a very comfortable visit. These folks went way above and beyond by putting in the 4th side of a fence to make certain our dogs were safe! Unbelievably kind. I highly recommend this home. It's in walking distance from the town and from what we heard, about the same price of the hotel rooms but we got a better night's sleep due to the quiet home.
