About Ref & Carol Finsterwald

I am a native of Colorado Springs and my husband has lived here a majority of his life.

Ref & Carol Finsterwald purchased this house in 1989

Why Ref & Carol Finsterwald chose Old Colorado City

We purchased this home as our first home and moved into it two weeks after we were married.

It holds a very special place in our hearts!

What makes this house unique

Situated in what we think is the greatest neighborhood. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. It really is like an old fashioned neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We were scheduled to arrive on January 12th and due to adverse weather we contacted Ref & Carol to let them know that we would actually be arriving on in January 11th into Colorado Springs. They allowed us to check-in a day early and have been more than accommodating for our stay. The house is absolutely everything we need and then some and is very nice and clean".

Best Host and Best Location

  • 5 of 5

The host Carol makes herself readily available if anything is needed. The house is completely stocked. She has even put together an information binder of the area with coupons to local restaurants. The neighborhood is friendly and is walking distance to downtown.

Beautiful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a family of 4 and a pooch. Everything we needed was in the house already and The fenced in backyard was great for privacy and letting the dog run free.

It's a great location close to all the attractions we wanted to visit, we can't wait to come back!!!!!
