About the Property
Sleeps 6. 3 Bedrooms. 2 Baths.
The main floor includes an open kitchen and dining table which seats 6, along with a pantry and all things needed to cook a delicious meal. There is a large living room that provides a very comfortable setting with new sofas, cushioned chairs and a large flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player; Internet is also provided.
All three bedrooms present a comfortable atmosphere and act as an oasis for relaxation. The main floor bedroom holds a queen bed and the two upstairs bedrooms hold a queen bed in one room and two twin beds in the other bedroom. There is a balcony w/ seating off the upstairs queen bedroom.
The game room is off the kitchen; a welcome setting for games, darts, poker table, a bar-top and additional room with plenty of storage. This room leads to the fenced in backyard where the patio furniture and gas grill are. Horseshoes in yard adjacent to this. A doggie door has been installed with a removable security panel if you wish to use it that leads to the fenced in yard.
There are two bathrooms, one on each level of the house. The downstairs bathroom includes a spacious shower and the upstairs bathroom includes a large jetted tub. Stairs separate the two floors and as this is an older house, they are steeper than newer houses.
The house has central air conditioning and central heat, and runs on a tank-less hot water heater. All guests are provided linens and towels. The house sits on 1 acre, is located at a dead end road, and has the east side of the property backed up to the high school fields; therefore the house is located in a quiet neighborhood and has a very secluded feel. There are 2 driveways, one very large and able to park trailers & boats. A shed is located to store any large equipment such as bikes or kayaks; so far we have one bike for our guests use but will be adding more!

In the heart of the Royal Gorge Region, this is a prime location to take part in all the activities in the Southern Colorado Region. We are located 10 minutes away from the Royal Gorge Bridge, the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, the Arkansas River which is the most commercially rafted river in the nation, and the top awarded winery in the state of Colorado, The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey. Day trips can be made to all the surrounding areas that include Pikes Peak and the cog railway, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and Pueblo Reservoir without having to feel the hustle and bustle of those cities. Cañon City has a much more relaxed atmosphere than some of the neighboring cities, and we pride ourselves on the friendly locals!
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I moved here from New York 14 years ago, got married and bought a house. My folks came to visit a few years back and fell in love with the relaxed atmosphere of Cañon City, Colorado and decided to buy a house for future visits and hopefully encourage the rest of the family to visit.
Why the Owner Chose Cañon City, CO, USA:
Having always loved old houses, they chose this old stone house built in 1902 that was completely gutted. Then they went back to NY... my husband and I were left with the task of renovation! For four years, we rebuilt this amazing house and poured as much love as possible into it! It was QUITE the TASK!!! Finally we are ready to share this amazing home with others who will also fall in love with the area and hopefully provide a place for you and your family to return to year after year as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
During the rebuilding, we realized that this house was special indeed... EVERYTHING had to be custom built... and I mean everything! The framing, door hanging, sheet rocking, mudding, tile laying, and trim work; you will notice every unique detail in this house. What could be salvaged and refinished was, despite the hours of labor put in to refinishing that old piece of barnwood turned into beautiful wood trim for the doorway! This old house in a renewed gem! You will experience this too, at the first step into the house when you notice the 10 foot ceilings, with 6 foot windows surrounded by gorgeous stained trim that has been collected from around the country from different antique stores.
