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 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.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I very much enjoyed our weekend getaway here. The house was quite spacious for the two of us. The back yard is set up wonderfully for spending time out doors, it was tranquil with wind chimes and a water fountain to create a peaceful ambiance. The large bedroom included two skylights which made for a great view of the evening thunderstorms during our stay. Our privacy was respected during our stay as well, we didn't see the homeowners at all actually...Just their adorable Boston terriers prouncing around in the yard every once in awhile which was a very pleasant surprise :) Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

My girlfriends and I loved staying at Debbie and Luke's property! It was spacious that we had 4 people and we all slept comfortably, the hot tub was amazing, and the location couldn't be better! We plan on going back in the future! :)

Great space for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was very spacious and clean! It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel room. There were no cleaning fees added to our reservation so the cost was very reasonable. It is so nice to be able to walk out the door and go hiking in the Garden of the Gods. The owners are very friendly and helpful but also respect your privacy. This unit does not have a kitchen set up for lots of cooking but it had everything that we needed to fix breakfast and lunches. We ate dinner out at many of the good restaurants close by. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice vacation home close to Garden on the Gods and Manitou Springs

  • 4 of 5

We booked this rental in August and stayed in December. Luke and Debbie were very nice and helpful throughout the process. The vacation home was very well kept and decorated. We were very surprised to see a Christmas tree and all kinds of Christmas decor adorning the home. The vacation home is attached to Luke and Debbie's home and that was something I wasn't aware of during booking. They did their best to respect our privacy so we could enjoy our vacation, however my preference is a more secluded environment. The small kitchen served our purposes and was very nice. Only thing I would add is some way to make ice so we don't have to go buy it. I drive a large 4x4 truck and the driveway was an adventure every time we would come and go. There is barely enough space to pass the owners kitchen without either contacting the building or rolling off the drive. I would recommend bringing a smaller vehicle or working out a better parking situation. The hot tub was very nice and relaxing, just keep in mind it is located in a shared courtyard with the home owners. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this location to friends depending on what type of experience they are looking for.

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.
