About the property

This charming early 1900's home is just steps away to parks and hiking trails, local tourist attractions (Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds, etc.), local galleries, museums, bars & restaurants. You’ll love our place because of the new comfortable no-pressure mattresses, the coziness of the layout, modern/western charm, and the fully stocked kitchen. Our home is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, outdoor & cuisine enthusiasts, business travelers, and families (with kids).

Why The Owner chose Old Colorado City

We love Old Colorado City! We live here, play here, and want to share it with anyone who can appreciate a historic area along with close access to many beautiful parks, trails, mountains, art, and community.

What makes this house unique

This home is 1.5 blocks from shopping, dining, night life, and trails. One of the top 10 parks in the country (Garden of the Gods) is just a very short drive.

Very nice!!

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay again if in the area. The house had everything we needed. It is located close enough to all attractions and really close to the downtown shops.

Great location and within walking distance from restaurants!

  • 4 of 5

The property was very cute and the perfect size for our family of 5. We had some wildlife visitors when we first arrived as 3 deer were in the side yard which was really cool to see them so up close. I ranked it 4 stars due to the A/C. I may have misread the description but it has 1 window air unit for the A/C. While we were there it was up in the high 90s. So the living room and dining room were cool,however the bedrooms weren’t as cool and it was quite warm to sleep. There are ceiling fans in each room, which helped, but it wasn’t as cool as I’d like it. Otherwise the property was excellent and had everything we needed.

Darling home in the middle of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were in love with this little home. We had 5 people, 3 adults and 2 kids and there was plenty of space for all. The window ac unit was a huge plus so the house stayed very cool which was great bc we had some hot weather during our stay. Beds were very comfy, my kids even said the pull out couch was comfortable. Kitchen had anything and everything you would need. Anything we didn’t think of it was here. I highly recommend this home for your stay. If we make it back to Colorado Springs we will be back to this home. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your home.

Comfy logding and amazing view from front porch

  • 5 of 5

Property was room and comfortable for only being about 1000sqft. Fully equipped kitchen. View from the front porch was amazing! Proximity to Old Colorado City downtown is super convenient, I was even close enough to walk to the grocery store. The only thing I would recommend is bringing extra towels. Towels provided needed to be bleached as they smelled a little musty.

Owner's Response: This is the first we've heard about the towels, so they must not have been put back completely dry the last time they were washed. We have notified our cleaning crew to address this the next time they clean the house. Glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise!

Cute house and walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Perfect for our family. Plenty of space and enjoy sitting on the porches and enjoying the humidity-less weather. Beds were comfortable and house was clean!

Walking distance to delicious cinamon rolls and cute shops.

Will book again if back in the area!
