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.

Perfect location! Great accommodations!
Such a great location, 5 minute walk to the cool Garden of the Gods. Close to Pikes Peak. The house was very nice and cozy. Nice touch with putting snacks out for us! Hot tub was relaxing after sight seeing all day. Didn’t get to meet the owners, but thank you for sharing your home with us!
Very clean, out of the hustle and bustle.
Enjoyable stay. Felt homey.
Amazing location and accommodations. Perfect getaway!
Property is tucked away and quiet with amazing walking access to GOG. Fenced yard was perfect for the pups and the host doggies were so fun and friendly. We will be back for sure!
Great base from where to enjoy the Colorado Springs attractions
The two story house is so nicely appointed that one just could feel content to stay and enjoy the house and wonderful private fenced yard with grill and fire pit. But the multiple attractions, Garden of Gods being just few minutes drive away, will complete the stay in Colorado Springs. The Hosts in the adjoining building were fun and friendly and added to the pleasure of the stay.
Quiet and peaceful
We stayed here for our anniversary weekend away. We loved being so close to the Incline, Sun Water Spa and good food. The hot tub was a great addition and very relaxing. Everything was clean and spacious. The only thing we wish it had, was a king size bed but for a weekend, it was fine and actually very comfortable.
Great place and great location!
We had a great time staying at this property. It was right by one of the hiking trails in Garden of the Gods so we were able to walk right into the park. The home was beautify and cozy and was also in a great location.
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.
