One of Canon City's original stone houses, built in 1902 was completely gutted in 2009 from foundation to roof. Everything has been completely restored, preserving the old wooden trim and hardwood floors, yet bringing in new life with all the modern amenities. This 2 story, 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, living room, kitchen, pantry, game room, and fenced in backyard, includes large, new high-end windows, 10 foot high ceilings, and many energy efficient features.
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 is 1 available driveway, which is very large and able to park trailers & boats. A shed is located to store any large equipment such as bikes or kayaks.

About Fleur Kaiser
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.
Fleur Kaiser purchased this House in 2009
Why Fleur Kaiser chose Cañon City
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Charming Comfort In Canon City
We had a trip planned to Canon City and needed a place to stay while we rafted the Arkansas River and enjoyed the sights of Colorado Springs. This property suited our needs perfectly!
We were four adults in our 50's, and we were looking for a 3 bedroom 2 bath house. The bedrooms were cozy and comfortable. The bathrooms were great for our needs. The kitchen had everything we needed and the living room was great for kicking back and relaxing.
Communication with the owner Fleur was excellent! She gave us suggestions for rafting and answered any questions that we had. Parking our 24ft Winnebago was a breeze. We would definitely stay here again and want to thank Fleur for everything!
Thank you Fleur!
The Veloso-Harris Family

Great place to stay!
Comfortable home with all the amenities we needed. Would stay here again!
Lovely and very comfortable!
We loved the old stone house. It had tons of charm and every amenity plus a great yard for our dogs! There were even toys for our dogs. Fleur was extremely helpful with some special circumstances. We loved it and plan on coming back soon.
Priced too low
A wonderful functional old home.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Great Location! Close to everything, mintutes from grocery!
We had a great time in this house! My kids and dog enjoyed playing in the yard. We rode bikes around the neighborhood and lots of parks for the kids close by! Highly recommend!
Great house for weekend get away
The Whipple House was perfect for us. I went with a small group of friends to check out the Royal Gorge Park. This House was close to Main Street and had everything we needed.
We are so glad you & your friends enjoyed our house! Hope to have you visit again.
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!
