A warm, garden cottage nestled in a grotto in the heart of Manitou. This renovated boutique (320 sq. ft.) dwelling dates to 1896, and is seconds to springs, coffee houses, shops, trails & spas. The Nest is a half block from Manitou Avenue but surprisingly private, and it is surrounded by nature.
The cottage has three rooms--a bedroom, a living room with adjoining kitchenette, and a 3/4 bath.
A full-sized, memory foam bed in a separate bedroom provides great comfort and privacy. Baseboard heat (dedicated and adjustable) sets the room to your most comfortable sleeping temperature. The bedroom has a door that opens to an outdoor seating area behind the cottage. The room contains a TV, DVD player and DVD collection, as well as shelves for storing clothes.
The Living Room is equipped with a Jotul gas heating stove, a sectional couch with end tables, a round, and a circular, wooden table settee with two chairs. The room is perfect for lounging, and the couch, one section of which lifts up for storage becomes a queen-sized bed for one additional adult guest or two children.
The kitchenette adjoins the living room. It has a half-sized fridge, toaster oven, microwave and double sink, electric water boiler, french press, a all the necessary plates, mugs and utensils. The gas stove top serves as prep space, but can be utilized for stove top cooking if/as necessary.
Soak up the intimate environment of the garden, with limestone retaining wall and patio seating, both in front of the cottage and in a nature nook off of the bedroom. Sunlight beams into the cottage through windows on all sides, and through a skylight over the shower. Sun-filtering blinds and a gas stove are perfect for those days when you just want to curl up in a soft, warm blanket and read while you sip hot tea.
