Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Julia!



Sorry it took me a couple days to get back to you! We just made it back home yesterday. We had a GREAT time in Colorado and the house was perfect. It was a wonderful location and everything was great! Thank you so much for being so easy to work with, it definitely made our stay very comfortable and easy. We only wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitely be back again!



Thanks again for everything! I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!

Wonderful home and great location

  • 4 of 5

My family, including children age 2 and 5, very much enjoyed our stay at the Pikes Peak Cottage. The location of the house is very convenient to the wonderful attractions in the area, and is on a nice, quiet street. The house was very clean and cozy and offered all of the amenities we needed for our week-long stay. Above and beyond the necessities, there were also toys and videos that my kids really enjoyed and helped make some of our rainy afternoons much more fun.

Our family very much enjoyed touring the immediate area, and also branching out to some of the attractions a little farther out. We spent time at Garden of the Gods and the Air Force Academy. We enjoyed the drive up Pike's Peak on a very clear, sunny day and also drove out to Cripple Creek and the Royal Gorge Bridge. Lots of fun, family activities that we all enjoyed. My husband and son also played glow-in-the-dark mini-golf and I took the challenge of climbing up the Manitou Incline.

Overall we really enjoyed our time in Colorado Springs and we loved the convenience of the location of the Pikes Peak Cottage. Thank you Julia!

Very cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was great for our week long stay. It's close to a bunch of attractions so we didn't have to travel too far. Loved Old Colorado City which was just down the street, a grocery store is also just a block or so away. My husband and I brought my mom with us and she loved it and couldn't get over how you can rent a house to stay in. Ha! The house was furnished with just about everything you need....just go get some groceries and your ready. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks for being so kind and helpful and allowing us to stay in your cottage. This is a vacation that we will remember forever!

FYI

  • 1 of 5

This owner will cancel your reservation if their corporate client extends their stay. We were notified one day prior to leaving on vacation. We were offered another property but it did not meet our requirements. We were refunded our money promptly but we're unable to find another place on such short notice. This was a huge disappointment.

Owner's Response: The guests did not disclose until the last minute that they are brining 5 dogs to the property. We cannot accept 5 dogs. Sorry we had to cancel. We can accept one small well-behaved dog only during off season Oct-April.

Back to the Garden

  • 5 of 5

Pikes Peak Cottage was a great place for us to explore Colorado Springs and the surrounding countryside, including Garden of the Gods, by biking and hiking. The house is very cozy and in a nice, quiet location. All the necessities for a comfortable stay are provided. I highly recommend it for a stay in Colorado Springs.

We were in heaven at Garden of the Gods

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Julia, we had a wonderful time. My husband loved bicycling the Lower Gold Camp Road. Those tunnels were fun, and what a view!

We went up Pikes Peak, hiked Garden of the Gods with the dogs, went to Manitou Springs, and fell in love with Bear Creek dog park. Our doggies were in heaven!

Being so close to dowtown Old Colorado was so fun. We walked there most nights to hear bands play, eat at a restaurant, or just window browse the artwork.

So nice to come back from our outings and have a yard for them. We found everything we needed in the cottage except the propane, which someone had left turned on previously. Oops! Thank goodness no major damage was done.

Thanks for a wonderful time.

We recommend this property to family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Pikes Peak Cottage! It was plenty of room for us (2 adults and 3 kids). This property was just like the pictures. It was very clean and ready for us on time. The manager was great and very helpful: she helped us to plan our itinerary and provided a lot of useful information with a list of local attractions with links to the web sites.

Great location, central to many attractions such as Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Air Force Academy & Royal Gorge to name a few. We walked everywhere we could without using our rental car. Old Colorado City historic district is just a few blocks away. We took some trails at Red Rock Canyon Park and had a great lunch at Rudy's BBQ right by the park. We will definitely recommend to family & friends!
