Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cheyenne Canyon, Colorado Springs, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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!
