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.

We enjoyed our visit! Beautiful mountains with lots to see and do!
Very scenic spot in Colorado Springs
We had a wonderful stay in Colorado Springs. The house was clean and spacious. The back yard was beautifully landscaped with a variety of plants. Luke and Debbie were very flexible with our changing travel plans which we greatly appreciated. Luke recommended a wonderful Italian restaurant for dinner. The house is within walking distance to the hiking trails in The Garden of the Gods which we took advantage of. Amos & Andy were perfect hosts with my friend's dog.
Amazing owners. Perfect location. Highly recommend
Overall great experience!!
great location; very comfortable place to be
this place is really in a great location! Easy access to anything you want to do and only about 25 minutes away from the airport. Comfortable bed! Hot tub is nice although I didn't get the opportunity to enjoy it. Felt safe there. For longer stays just be aware that there is no washer/dryer and no stove/oven. I am terrible at backing up a vehicle so the long driveway and backing out of that was a nightmare for me. Road construction everywhere and I'm sure that will resolve over time. Close to shops, grocery store, etc. Debbie even brought me a bag of ice from her ice maker! Their home is adjacent to the property and you can hear them sometimes but honestly, that made me feel safe knowing they were so close by.
This was perfect!
The pictures don’t do the house justice. The location was great and the house was beautiful.
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.
