Wonderful home and Owners

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Allen were great. Allen met us upon arrival and showed us through the home and pointed out amenities. They also told us about attractions and sites we needed to see and places to eat.

They have a large garden and greenhouse on the rear of the property as well as chickens and goats. Richard and Allen provided us with a dozen fresh eggs and a bottle of red wine when we arrived. They asked if we drank wine and my wife replied yes but she preferred white wine. To be accommodating, they showed up in a few minutes with a bottle of white wine. The home was spotless clean.

The back porch provided a great place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon.

The home is located near the center of Old Town Colorado Spring where there are many unique shops and dining.

I loved Colorado Springs, I will be back and staying with Allen and Richard.

Richard is such a wonderful host, welcoming us and giving us the lay of the land. We had a great stay. When we come back to the area, we hope to stay here again.

Peace in the city

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well maintained property ! So quiet and peaceful, hard to believe you're still in the city. Richard and Allen were within reach for questions (and we had a lot!) but gave us privacy. Kitchen and bath are well equipped. The backyard is so cool ! Chickens, baby goats, honey bees and a greenhouse - your own little farmyard ! Fresh eggs for breakfast was a bonus !

Thank you !! Definitely on our return list !

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

This is an extraordinary property/experience. We were in town for a week to visit our son. It is situated in a lovely Old Colorado City neighborhood. Easy walking distance to grocery store, restaurants and shops. Richard and Alan were wonderful hosts and have created an unique urban farm. The house faces the street and is very comfortable and well appointed. There is a nice deck off the back of the house facing the greenhouse which is an aquaponic working greenhouse. We were greeted w/ a dozen eggs from their chickens, a bottle of wine and a bouquet of flowers from their gardens. Very private and quiet place that we thoroughly enjoyed! We look forward to returning.

Clean, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental property was fantastic. The owner is very nice and always helpful, and being able to buy fresh eggs (after finishing the complimentary first dozen) on site is a nice touch. I would definitely stay here again!

Located between Old Colorado City and downtown Colorado Springs make this location ideal. The neighborhood is an eclectic mixture of architecture styles and known as one of the friendliest in the springs. There are many things to do within walking distance of the house.
