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! :)

This was a very cute little cottage that made me feel at home!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean and had most everything you need . More cupboards would be helpful as we did struggle to find where to put our food at times. It is located close to all of the main attractions. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend. Be aware of extra cleaning fee.

Owner's Response: I believe most everyone charges a cleaning fee. It is a one time charge and is charged up front on the initial quote.

Nicest VRBO we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Off street parking, secluded location, comfortable bed and furniture, good sized place for two. Bet is most accommodating as the hostess. We are looking forward to more time there.

The Perfect Honeymoon House

  • 5 of 5

Welcome! To the clean, comfortable cottage where my husband and I spent the first five days of our married life. It was such a relaxing place to come back to after a day on Pike's Peak or at Garden of the Gods or Focus on the Family or Seven Falls or hiking some of the abundant trails in the area. There is LOTS to do around Colorado City. But some of our best memories were made here at this cabin. It is all set up with everything you need except groceries, and those can be picked up just minutes away. The kitchen and little porch out back had all the utensils for grilling supper before relaxing in the deck chairs or in the cozy living room. Far Cry Cottage is located in a charming residential area just minutes from the main drag, but with hiking trails basically out the back door and a good showing of wildlife. Be advised that once all the taxes etc are thrown in the cost will be more like $175 a night than the $135 we though we were going to pay. You get good value for your money, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time instead of after we booked it and started getting the bills. It's a beautiful spot though and we loved every minute of our time!

Owner's Response: Please note that when you book the cottage you do see an itemized list of all charges. I am sorry you did not note that. The room rate is $135/ night plus taxes which you would pay wherever you stay, a one time cleaning charge and the service charge from VRBO for using their service.

This was our second stay at Far Cry Cottage and we doubt it will be our last

  • 5 of 5

Our honeymoon with this lovely cottage is not over - our second stay was every bit as delightful as our first. We love the cottage and we love this area of Colorado Springs. The cottage is very comfortable for two - we love the back deck, the bed is comfortable, the kitchen well appointed. Lots of nice little touches to make us feel welcome - a bouquet of fresh garden flowers on the table, half and half in the fridge, etc.
