About Debbie and Luke Ellington
We moved to Colorado after marrying over 30 years ago. We have always enjoyed awesome mountain setting nestled right up against the foothills at the base of Pikes Peak, the deep blue skies and the numerous sunny days we have here. We love hiking and the opportunities are endless here. Skiing 2 hours away. What's not to like!?
Debbie and Luke Ellington purchased this House in 2011
Why Debbie and Luke Ellington chose West Colorado Springs
We moved here after many years of living in the mountains at 8500 ft. We were very choosy about the location of where we would live in the Springs. This home was the perfect location for us. So close to many trails and parks which we love to access. There are lots of fun festivals in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City besides good restaurants and shops. When we need a mountain fix, we can access them easily from here. This neighborhood has old growth trees, and no two houses are the same. This is not a track home! But it is a very scenic special neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that we can walk up the street and be in Garden of the Gods for awesome hikes and views that we never get tired of. Down the street Amada Fonda has a really nice outdoor creekside dining area for drinks and Mexican food. Or visit the shops, penny arcade, and restaurants and bars in funky Manitou Springs. Drive to the top of 14,000 Pikes Peak in the summer. Or take the Cog Railway to the top. The 5 Star Broadmoor Hotel is 20 minutes away. Besides the great hiking in Garden of the Gods, there is Red Rocks only minutes away. Colorado Springs offers nightlife on Tejon Street, 5 miles away. Or just go 2 miles to Colorado Mountain Brewery. White water raft 2 hours away. Olympic Training Center 20 minutes, Royal Gorge Suspension Bridge 1 hr, Cripple Creek Casinos 50 minutes, Air Force Academy 25 minutes. Warm and dry in summer.

Loved the overall experience!!
The rooms were lovely and very clean. It was a short walk to the park. Very close to Pikes Peak
Perfect place and conveniently located to everything!
Thanks to the Ellingtons, my husband and I had a getaway in Colorado Springs. The views from all sides of the upstairs bedroom had a different picture in each window. Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Nature, an entertaining patio with a hot tub and beautiful flowers were all scenic views. Wifi is better downstairs and yes cell phone usage is tricky in certain areas of the house but as with any mountainous property those are the regular issues. Use wifi when communicating and helps the problems listed about on other reviews. The Garden of the Gods is within walking distance or drive through all of it. The cliff dwellings are close. There is construction right now but it is easy to get around anyway. I can't wait to come back it was perfect.The owners were very quick to answer any questions when messaged. We really did not see them but we were gone most of the daytime hours. We did enjoy Debbie's singing in the mornings as we could hear her from the kitchen. She has a great voice. Many great places to eat and shop or hike for the scenery. Everything was great. Thank you Luke and Debbie.
OMG! I'm really embarrassed. I must have forgotten that someone was staying or I would have never been singing! (Although I do love to sing) Thank you for being so kind and understanding!
Arrived to meet the owners who were very welcoming. Very quiet and relaxing getaway place that is conveniently located for food and adventure. Would definately come back!
Very convenient location. Jacuzzi, great back yard. Big tub. Spacious light bedroom . Comfortable bed. Highly recommend!
We had a great time, great unit.
Debbie and Luke were amazingly hospitable and generous! Their home was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The property was spacious and had ample room for our family to spread out and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful flowers in the backyard and loved the location. The hot tub was an added bonus, along with the board games they provided. We had hoped to use the fire pit but ran out of time. Amos and Andy we're delightful. We were walking distance from the Garden of the Gods and took advantage of that often. It was conveniently located and definitely a place we would return to in the future. We are so grateful we found this outstanding property!
We are close to many of the sights you would like to see. Cave of the Winds, The Cliff Dwellings, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Santa's Workshop, and Garden of the Gods are all within a 5 minute drive. Colorado hiking is some of the best, and the Garden of the Gods is literally 2 minutes from our house. Numerous whitewater rafting opportunities are available within 2 hours of the house.
