About the Property
3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Home---Sleeps 6
This lovely three bedroom, one and a half bath cottage is urban living at it's best. You are a ten minute walk to the heart of downtown Colorado Springs where you will find our treasured Acacia Park with Uncle Wilbur's Fountain in the summertime and an outdoor ice skating rink during the winter. Stroll down Tejon Street where there are restaurants and shops that will satisfy everyone in your family. The COSP night life is also downtown making your vacation home close to 'something for everyone'. Because you are in the middle of everything, You aren't far from anything: The renowned Patty Jewett Golf Course and Restaurant located just a mile from your Cottage (even if you don't play a round of golf it's a great place for a casual meal with stunning views); Old Colorado City with small boutiques and eateries; Manitou Springs with the Pikes Peak Cog Railway; the famous Garden of the Gods Park as well as several fun hiking trails at all levels. You will be in the perfect location for visiting your Student that is attending Colorado College and your Air Force Student will enjoy 'living downtown' while you are in the Springs visiting Him/Her.
We just purchased our Vacation Rental in 2014 and have had great fun furnishing and decorating it for Your enjoyment and comfort. You will absolutely feel 'at home' the minute you walk through the front door ... Not too fancy ... Charming and relaxing ... Just right for everyone! It is our plan to have your entire Family happy and more than satisfied and ready to return during your next vacation.
All three bedrooms and the main, full bath are located on the upstairs level. Two of the bedrooms have Queen-size beds with new mattresses and bedding and new furnishings throughout. The third bedroom has a trundle bed with upgraded mattresses and shelves full of books and games for all ages.
On the main level is the living room with a comfy oversized, leather couch and an ottoman for total relaxing while watching tv above the stove mantle. There are two lovely chairs perfect for sitting and reading the evening away. The dining room has seating for six and fun artwork all around. We have purchased all new stainless steel appliances, new dishes and Calphalon pots and pans. The very roomy 1/2 bath is off of the kitchen. If we are ever 'missing anything' that you need, please send an email or text and we will do our best to have it for you during your next stay.
The cottage on Willamette is also available for 'Executive Stays' and 'Longer Vacation Stays' at a reduced rate.
We hope to see you very soon.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are originally from Kansas. In 1993 we decided to play hooky from our jobs for a few days and take a little get-away-vacation to Colorado ... just the two of us. A little less than three months after our 'mini-vacation' we had sold our Wichita Business, our home and one small investment property and moved our three almost-grown children and our grandson to the Colorado Springs area. We jokingly called it our (slightly early) mid-life-crises. Our Family and Friends thought we were a little NUTS ... But it turned out to be one of those wild and crazy things that turns into a Great (and slightly scary) Family Adventure ... That was over 20 years ago!!. In fact, our now grown children and grand children are still in Colorado and not interested in budging. We have owned rental property for twenty-five years but our move into this exciting new arena of Vacation Rentals has us feeling (almost) forty-something again. It has been so much fun putting together this lovely home so that when your Family and You come to Colorado and fall in love with this magical place, you will have a comfortable and homey place to stay. We encourage you to take lots of walks and see everything that the downtown Colorado Springs neighborhoods have to offer. And when you come home to your little Cottage on Willamette there is a quaint claw-foot tub waiting for you to 'bubble-up' in and two queen-sized beds for a great night's sleep so you can begin exploring all over again the next day. Who Knows ... Maybe you'll have your own (slightly early) mid-life-crises and move here too ... What month are you planning to visit ??
Why the Owner Chose East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
This property IS the Perfect location for your next Colorado Springs getaway. Close to everything the area has to offer no matter which direction you are headed for the day.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After a great deal of house looking, the biggest thing that sold us on this house (besides the charm) is the location ... You ( and your Pup) can start every day with a ten minute walk to Starbucks ----be sure to ask for a free "puppy latte". OR head a few blocks east to Shooks Run Park where we always see walkers and joggers and bikers abound. It's like you always hear about real estate: Location, Location, Location. And it just doesn't get much better than the Cottage on Willamette.
