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".

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!!!!!

Our 7 weeks could not have been more perfect in this little blue house. It had everything we could have ever wanted- perfect location, walking distance to downtown old Colorado City, good-sized yard, wonderful neighbors, and the best owners. We felt like we were at home the moment we walked in and we were sad to leave. Carol and Ref were accommodating the entire trip and we can't wait to get back!

An excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two months in Colorado Springs. Old Colorado City is a charming part of the city. We enjoyed staying there. Our VRBO was just the right size for my wife and myself. There was enough room to entertain, a fenced back yard for our doggy and the neighbors were pleasant and friendly. The house was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The one time something broke, the repairs were done immediately. All the amenities were within blocks of us; restaurants, shops, supermarkets…etc. There were numerous places to walk. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone. Greg

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay while in Colorado Springs. It was a positive experience from the first contact with the home owner Carol. She was pleasant and inviting. All communications were answered quickly. She assured us that since we would me there on Christmas, she would decorate the house for the holiday. When we arrived at the house the first thing we noticed was beautiful Christmas decorations on the exterior. The interior was also decorated beautifully for Christmas. The house is setup great for a stay of any length. It is only one block from Colorado Ave. which is the main street shopping in the area. Carol came the first day and was equally pleasant in person. She told us to contact her if there was anything we needed while at the house. The neighbors are very friendly, and helpful with things to do and directions. We have stayed in four different house in Colorado Springs over the years, and highly recommend this home.
