About Elizabeth (Bet) Mulholland

I have owned this cottage for many years and grew up in this area attending local schools and hiking this area for many many years. For me it is the perfect location for a peaceful retreat or a busy vacation.

Elizabeth (Bet) Mulholland purchased this cottage in 1986

Why Elizabeth (Bet) Mulholland chose Colorado Springs

The property is located in the southwest of Colorado Springs. It is a fun, quaint and quirky neighborhood with narrow winding roads and tiny houses. The area originally housed many TB patients coming for the cure in the pure mountain air! Medicine thought it was a benefit to sleep in unheated porches and many of the little houses were home to many of these patients.

What makes this cottage unique

All who come to stay or visit this property seem to love the cozy feeling it brings and the wonderful sunny rooms. The property offers a wonderful location if you just want to relax, be busy hiking or seeing this spectacular city! Autumn is especially lovely. Clear blue skies, cool nights, shimmering aspen and colorful scrub oak make this a delightful retreat!

Such a peaceful and charming cottage for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed for 4 days in this cute and charming cottage in Colorado Springs! We loved everything about this home and how clean and inviting the atmosphere felt during our stay. Bet had everything that we could have possibly needed and more and was very accommodating during our stay. She even allowed us to check-in early on our first day since we had a wedding rehearsal to go to and we were so grateful for her being so accommodating with us about that. One of our favorite parts about the house was the private back deck that we enjoyed sitting on and sipping our coffee each morning. We even saw several deer in the yard below resting each afternoon.The house is in a great location with beautiful hiking nearby, which we loved! We enjoyed great coffee and breakfast at the local coffee shop and loved feeling at home each night after a long day of adventures around the beautiful Colorado mountains. Another great thing about this home was the nice big windows in the bedroom, that let in a great amount of sunlight, but could be pulled down if you wanted to sleep in each morning. We enjoyed opening the windows in the bedroom to allow fresh air in as we got ready each morning since this home has screens on the windows. I would highly recommended this home to anyone looking for a quiet get away with charm, cleanliness and all of the amenities that you could possibly need during a vacation. My husband and I will most definitely be back to visit this cottage very soon! Thank you again Bet for sharing your beautiful home with us! :)

Such a comfortable and cozy vacation cottage. Good location SW of The Springs.

We enjoyed breakfast and sun on the back deck. Also, listening and watching the native birds.

Thanks Bet, for accommodating our late arrival. We can't recommend this cottage highly enough!

Perfect location for exploring the Colorado Springs area.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend Far Cry cottage to anyone visiting the Colorado Springs area. It is centrally located, less than 15 minute drive to area attractions, don't miss visit to The Garden of The Gods, about an hour to Royal Gorge. The cottage is immaculate and nicely decorated. Nice and safe neighborhood yet feeling of seclusion. The deck was a beautiful spot to watch sunrise or city lights at night. Gas fireplace took the chill off. Kitchen well equipped to prepare meals. Bet was always quick to respond to questions, ever grateful for the opportunity to stay in such a nice place! Thanks again, would definitely stay again.
