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!!

Adorable home, with a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO, and I will defiantly book again. The owner was helpful with any questions and the place is so cute. I really enjoyed being walking distance from Old Colorado City. There is plenty to do just down the block!

This is a nice option compared to booking a hotel. It was a personal and private vacation experience I enjoyed with my family. It was also a nice surprise to see a bottle of wine on the kitchen table.

Great little house for the price. Loved the rain shower and had all the utensils we needed for basic meals. Will definitely consider staying here again over a hotel!!

much better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen seemed quite new and had everything we needed for some home-cooked meals. Having to go through a bedroom to get to the bathroom was a little awkward, but OK if you're family.

Great stay at the little yellow house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in old CS...house walking distance to main street. Owners were great communicators...gave helpful suggestions for our stay, and the wine is a nice touch.

House was in great shape.....bath shower was awesome! Everything worked great....appliances and things fairly new. No mishaps or complaints.

Do recommend!!

Loved the Yellow House!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of the yellow house! Walking distance to family, downtown shops/restaurants, and to the tours we had booked. We took advantage of the grill and campfire pit. Very homey and had everything we needed. Owners helpful. We will definitely return and recommend this house to others.
