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.

The home was perfect for our three person, quick getaway. Property is convenient to activities in town, but far enough to be quiet and relaxing. Thanks.

Donkey Days Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Phil and his wife, we spent a nice weekend retreat in Cripple Creek during the annual Donkey Derby Days. We enjoyed everything Cripple Creek had to offer and it was close to Colorado Springs. The bungalow is close (short walk downhill) to downtown Cripple Creek. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and the view of Pikes Peak. I recommend this rental for anyone visiting this area.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Adorable two bedroom with all of the amenities for nice time away from home! Owners are responsive and very friendly; genuinely concerned about their guests. My husband and I enjoyed walking from the house to restaurants and casinos; we also walked to the jail/museum at the end of town. We will definitely try to book this VRBO next time we are in Cripple Creek!
