About Ann Gibson

We ourselves were first vacationers to Colorado Springs several years ago before moving here from the midwest, and absolutely love it! The mountains and red rocks are always inviting adventure, and the sun shines just about every day!

Ann Gibson purchased this house in 2014

Why Ann Gibson chose Colorado Springs

Visit once and you'll see that the charm of the Colorado Springs region really is within Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. Neighboring Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks Open Space, the Cog Railway up to Pike's Peak, Downtown Colorado Springs, cute shops in old Victorian style...we chose this home specifically to make it a vacation rental as we knew it was in such a desirable location!

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to farmers market, coffee shops, shopping, and restaurants in Old Colorado City. Minutes from Garden of the Gods with horseback riding, hikes, & rock climbing, Manitou Springs, Downtown Colorado Springs, Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds, scenic trails, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and so much more!!

This rental was extremely cozy and comfortable for our family. We enjoyed being close to many activities, shops, and restaurants. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We would definitely rent this place again.

Beds were not up to standard.

  • 1 of 5

Beautiful home, very near shaopping and recreation. Unfortunately, the beds were painfully uncomfortable. Had this been a hotel, we would have left. We come to the Colorado Springs area multiple times a year and had high hopes for this rental. Unless they upgrade their beds, we will stay elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Our guest's experience staying at our home is something we take very seriously. During this guests stay the bed frame broke when they moved the bed to access an electrical outlet. We promptly replaced the bed frame, and have since also ordered a brand new top rated mattress and box spring to be delivered next week for the master bedroom.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Colorado Spring in this little house. Very convenient, very close to the historical district, very quiet ! We loved it.

En français : petite maison, très confortable et mignonne, idéalement située, non loin du centre historique de Colorado Spring et non loin des autres sites à voir dans le coin ! Je recommande !

Super adorable in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Colorado Springs before and loved this location compared to the others we have stayed in. Old Colorado City is where to stay in the springs! The neighbors were extremely friendly and you have a beautiful view of Pike's Peak from the front porch. Within walking distance of great coffee, restaurants, and shops. The house came with a bigger backyard and fire pit. There were all the amminities we needed right in the house (except food of course) we were able to cook our own food with the luxury of a fully stocked kitchen. Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. There are also plastic covers on all of the pillows and mattresses which is a HUGE plus for me!

Overall, it was great!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Being so close to all the parks and attractions was nice! The only reason I'm giving this house only 4 stars is that the couch was only comfortable in one spot, but we didn't use it much, so it was ok. Overall, we had a great time. The house was stocked with everything that we needed. Walking distance to restaurants & shops. Nice having a washer & dryer to keep our laundry clean after long hikes & bike rides. Cute & cozy house! Shower was great! Would recommend this house for someone looking for a place in Old Colorado City!

Super cute cottage in the perfect location

  • 4 of 5

I had to be in COS to care for my goddaughter while her mom has been unable to. This location was close to her school but also an easy walk to the heart of old Colorado City. The OCC is a wonderfully historic and hip neighborhood with much to offer for dining, shopping, coffee nightlife too though we couldn't partake. The cottage is nicely renovated with lots of light, high ceilings, a great kitchen and back yard. It met our needs perfectly. We'll be back if given the opportunity!
