My husband and I loved staying in this tiny cottage. It was perfect for the two of us with a nicely equipped kitchen (with breakfast items provided in the fridge and freezer! Score!), nice-sized bedroom with a comfortable bed, a bathroom equipped with a washer/dryer, and a comfy living room with satellite TV, plenty of informational brochures about Colorado, and even some board games.
The couch in the living room was a pull-out, which would be great if you were bringing along a couple of kids or close friends. (The only bathroom is connected to the bedroom, so keep that in mind if you plan on renting with pals.)
The location was perfect -- within walking distance of downtown Colorado Springs and about a 10-15 minute drive from Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon, and Manitou Springs.
We really loved making coffee and hanging out on the back patio, which was fenced off and very private from the neighbors. We had all of our breakfasts on the patio and utilized it again at night to look at the stars and enjoy the cool Colorado air.
The cottage was very, very clean and well-kept, and the owner was awesome with communication and making sure we knew all the ins-and-outs of staying in the cottage. It was easy to find, and there is a garage around back if you want to pull your car in. We would definitely stay here again!
