Manitou Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Colorado Cottage Getaway

Located between the desirable vacation and shopping districts of Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs sits the Colorado Cottage Getaway at the base of Pikes Peak Mountain. The Colorado Cottage is surrounded by Red Rock Canyon with breathtaking mountain views that you can enjoy from your private front porch and the Hotel San Ayre’s street-side Xeriscape Garden. Full of character and ripe with history, this is what Colorado is all about!

Centrally located to all of the area’s majestic attractions, the Colorado Cottage Getaway is located in a historic home that received a complete renovation in 2007. The Cottage is part of the Hotel San Ayre, a popular boutique hotel that appeals to many a savvy traveler with its whimsical style, first class service, and exceptional value. You’ll experience the best of both worlds, as you enjoy the privacy of your vacation rental at a hotel that can offer you service, should you need it.

The Colorado Cottage is approximately 1000sq feet of luxurious comfort; a cozy retreat that features modern yet timeless cottage décor. The difference is in the details of this rental. Experience history as you enjoy the architectural appointments of a bygone era. Originally constructed in the 1893, the Colorado Cottage is adorned with wooden blinds throughout, gorgeous historic hand-tooled window and door trim, 8-inch wood baseboards, and ¾ restored hardwood floors with honey-walnut stain. And don’t forget about the French Doors that add to the charm of this Historic Cottage!

After a long day of sightseeing you’ll be able to snuggle up in one of two bedrooms that feature an Iron King Bed in the Master and an Iron Scroll-Design Queen Bed in the 2nd Bedroom as well as luxurious bed linens. Or perhaps you would first like to soak in a relaxing bath in your private bathroom that features both a shower and original cast iron tub?

Traveling with a large group? You won’t feel cramped in this rental, which also offers a plush, yet modern granite-colored full-size sleeper sofa in the living room to accommodate the whole family (up to 4 adults and 2 children). Also worth a mention in the living room, is a cozy chocolate-colored side chair and ottoman.

Additional amenities include a large and open eat-in kitchen loaded with all the tools you will need to create memorable family feasts. The kitchen features beautiful tile work on the floor and countertops with a decorative tumbled stone backsplash. Have dinner at the attractive black wooden gathering table that will sit your whole family with six solid wood chairs. After enjoying a delicious dinner, your family can adjourn to your private front porch that features views of Red Rock Canyon and to the West, Pikes Peak. How better to enjoy Colorado than to relax on your porch or in the garden and watch the sun set behind the mountain?

Feeling more like a BBQ? Walk through the back door of your house and you will find that you are surrounded by the gardens of the hotel. Imagine-just out your back door you can enjoy the use of a Charcoal BBQ grill and Fire pit (which happens to also be a great place for roasting S’Mores).

The Hotel’s gardens are something you really will enjoy, as they surround the Cottage. Have a picnic in the front, or simply soak in the mountain atmosphere in this hidden garden that features a Xeriscape design with native Colorado vegetation.

Other suite features include Private Entrances and Off-Street Parking, Black Wooden Armoire with Cable Television and DVD, WIFI (Wireless Internet), Clock Radios, Coffee maker, Iron, Hairdryer, Spa-Quality Bath Amenities.

NOT WHAT WE WERE EXPECTING/HOPING

  • 2 of 5
The pictures and description made the place seem ideal for our trip to Colorado Springs - we made arrangements for the rental through vrbo.com, and the owners were very helpful and communicative. My husband got there on Monday and my two daughters (8 months and 2 years) and I met up with him on Wednesday - after a one week stay, we were not satisfied with our accommodations.

The cottage is over a century old, and is bound to have some "quirks". - it does. From what appears to be a fair amount of foundation settling, every room was on a slightly different level, in some places exaggerated by newer flooring / remodeling. Where they were left intact, the original hardwood floors are beautifully refinished, just not very square. For adults, not a big deal, but it's a definite trip hazard for toddlers or elderly. Other of the refinishing / remodeling work was done in a haphazard manner - sections of one flooring type (dark linoluem / tiling in the rear entry / laundry room) patched into the lighter ceramic tiling of the kitchen / dining room at the doorway, chipping / peeling up at the edges, and not secured properly (some flex evident when walking over it) also caught our attention in a negative way. The bathroom had been remodeled, but the entry doorway was less than 6 feet tall. The vintage heater grates were not securely fastened to the floor - generally a cause for concern with toddlers, but moreso due to other issues.

The biggest problem was the "critters" living under the house and in the walls. We guessed it was raccoons but who knows. It was bigger than rats and mice. You could tell by the sounds they were making. My husband noticed this the first night. He could hear them scratching and crawling up the walls all night long. He went to the front desk the next day and told them about it. They were very apologetic and said they would take care of it. He was clear that he understood that animals can make their way into older homes, but that it needed to be resolved before the children and I arrived the next day. Needless to say, the issue was never dealt with and it was very unsettling that we had to pay to live with "critters". My children were frightened and so was I.

Other little things: The fridge was not cleaned, there was a ton of dust on the blinds/under beds, NO WASHER/DRYER in unit, which was in the description. If you have children, I highly recommend you do not stay here. The best thing was the location was great.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately at the time of this stay we had a raccoon that was making his way into the sealed basement and was exiting by some means in the early morning hours. We believe it had to do with the substantial wildlife impact of the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire that occurred less then 2 miles from out location.

In an effort to resolve the issue we contact the Department of Natural Resource for Colorado. Since the wildlife issue had become such a problem in the districts surrounding the fire they quoted us 4-6 weeks to obtain a humane trap for the raccoon. We communicated this to the guests and asked if there was anything we could do in the meantime to off set the issue.

In the mean time we sealed up an old chimney stack that appeared to be the only entrance available for the coon.

It took us several weeks to final encourage the pesky guy to move on. Just an unfortunate set of circumstances. We apologize for the issue and look forward to no "coons" in the future for our guests.

A GREAT STAY IN COLORADO SPRINGS

  • 5 of 5
Many Thanks to Mike for our wonderful stay at the cottage at the Hotel Ayre in November. My picky husband was more than satisfied. The description is very accurate. It was clean, spacious, and the beds were great. The location was perfect for our needs. It is close to everything! We loved coming back there at the end of our busy days. We would definately come back if ever in Co Springs again.

GREAT PROPERTY AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed on property (though not in this exact house) and had a wonderful experience. The property is centrally located to all the main sites. Garden of the Gods is so close that my husband ran there are part of his morning run! An added benefit was the Safeway right down the street from the property. Both Manitou Springs and Old Colorado Springs City are charming and have wonderful dining choices.

The house we stayed in (the loft house) was very newly renovated, well equipped and had a ton of space.

The property owners were super nice and helpful. I highly recommend anyone visiting the area to stay at this property.

COLORADO SPRINGS WEEK VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Colorado Cottage for a week and really had a great vacation. The cottage was very clean. The kitchen had all the amenities listed, the decor both inside and out was charming, and the hard-wood floors really added a cool touch to the appearance. The owner was very kind, friendly, and extremely helpful in giving us suggestions on places to eat and things to see/directions to attractions in Colorado Springs. The location of the cottage was great. We were never more than 5-10 minutes away from attractions such as; Garden of the Gods, Cliff Dweller Museum, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado shopping district, Pikes Peak Nat'l Park, Seven Falls, etc. And, gas stations, restaurants, and a grocery store were closeby, too. I would recommend this cottage to family and friends and I hope to be able to stay here again soon..

LITTLE COTTAGE IN OLD COLORADO

  • 4 of 5
This was a very clean and nice little house and perfect for what we needed. We loved the back yard outdoor fire pit and brought our granddaughters over one night for Some-mores. They loved it. The parking was very convenient and the landlord very accommodating. The home itself was very comfortable and plenty of room. It was also very close to all the attractions and especially the fun of Old Colorado. Also very convenient to drugstore and grocery store. Thank you, Mike.

Our family of 4 spent a memorable and pleasant week at the Hotel San Ayre. We stayed in the Colorado cottage and it proved to be the right choice for us. The kitchen was great for our breakfasts before setting out on a day of site seeing. We even made a couple of dinners there as well which helped to save us $$ on eating out. Diana and Mike were considerate, friendly and accomodating hosts. The location is a prime spot right in the midst of all the activities and tourist stops. It's close proximity to Garden of the Gods was tremendous since we like to hike. If we are ever in the region again we will stay at the Hotel San Ayre.
