Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed staying at your home. Under the circumstances of our son and brother's sudden death, the cozy home gave us a gathering place of comfort and refuge. The dining room table was great to sit at and share memories, spread out the things we need to fill out and share meals with our extended family.



We will never forget your hospitality, the items you had for breakfast so we didn't have to rush around the next morning was really appreciated. The cottage helped to bring us closer together in our time of sorrow and helped to make things more beautiful.



It is our intention to try and return each year to spend time as family with Robert's two boys.



Thank you for your everything.

This is my job. My houses were meticulously renovated for the vacation home experience. My rental houses are above and beyond your average home rental.

I have traveled to Europe numerous times and have a connection with the culture, architecture and the general feeling that European properties exude. That is why I've decorated in a French and Italian theme.

I enjoy sharing our city with others and enjoy making people feel comfortable and special. I will do my best to make your stay comfortable and worry free.

Karen purchased this house in 2011

I chose this location because of the historic nature of this area of Colorado Springs. I also own and operate my 'honeymoon' French Parisian cottage nearby on the same street. Building began in the area in the late 1800's but most along this historic street are early 1900's. This house was built in 1914.

It is just a few blocks to the I-25 corridor and is minutes from the city center. You can get virtually anywhere in the city within 20 minutes from this location.

This beautiful home is located in the eclectic historic Old North End/Downtown area. This is a not a cookie cutter suburban area but a diverse and historic part of our city. It is minutes from Colorado College, downtown, Penrose Hospital, UCCS and Garden of the Gods. It is a short 8-10 minute drive to the AFA.

I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 30 years and know the area quite well so I can give you concierge service or advice in any area you need.

I chose to decorate this house in a Tuscan Villa style. The home has undergone an extensive renovation. The oak and fir floors have been returned to their orignial lustre. Both bathrooms are brand new. Tons of attention to detail went into the renovation. The walls have a venetian plaster that was hand troweled. Painted with the warm Tuscan colors of golds, sienna and greens.

The house is very enveloping and warm with perfectly placed lighting and Italian themed chandeliers. The kitchen was finished with top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. Enjoy all the accouterments's the kitchen is stocked with.

I wanted the feeling of traveling to Tuscany Italy when you walk into the house and gardens. Every piece of furniture, decor, dishes, etc. was lovingly hand chosen for this property for your enjoyment and comfort.

I will take special requests for any thing you are looking for or need help with. I am here to make sure your vacation stay is filled with memories as beautiful and majestic as the city is itself.

EVERYTHING PROMISED AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
Wanting a fun weekend to unwind, I booked this wonderful house and was so glad that I did! While close to downtown restaurants and shops, I felt secluded in luxury and pampered at the house. Clean, well appointed, and decorated without missing a detail. Plus ample room inside and out, I would return without hesitation!

THIS HOUSE IS AMAZING!! LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
The home was lovely. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and the decorating. I felt so at home. Everything I needed was in the kitchen. The amenities were outstanding. I've stayed in other rentals and they didn't hold a candle to this one. I was inspired to decorate my own house after staying here. I loved having the washer and dryer in the basement. I didn't want to leave it was so beautiful. I would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the gorgeous yard. Karen was very nice and friendly in her communications. She made me feel very welcome. It was evident she loves welcoming guests into her home.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN COLORADO SPRINGS

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I were originally supposed to stay at Karen's other property only one block away. There was a last minute issue and Karen was gracious enough to put us up in her bigger home at no additional cost. Our stay was perfect. This home is located on a road with easy access to any attractions you would want to visit during your stay in Colorado Springs. There were numerous running trails around the area too that were beautiful and conveniently located.

The inside of Karen's home was clean and up-to-date. The instructions that she left were clear and very helpful.

I look forward to coming back to Colorado Springs in the future and staying at Karen's properties again. I could not have asked for a better stay!

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY IN COLORADO SPRINGS FOR ANYONE.

  • 5 of 5
Our initial reservation was processed efficiently by Karen and we were very impressed with the whole booking process, as we made our reservation online from Australia without seeing the property.
Once the booking was confirmed, we received detailed information on directions, access and vital community information that was very helpful.
On the night of our arrival, the home had been beautifully prepared and we felt so welcome and enjoyed our first nights sleep immensely.
We were very impressed with the quality of all the appliances and also of how clean and well equipped the home was for all 8 of us. Our children loved the games, movies and activities that were provided and we enjoyed having everything we needed to make wonderful home cooked meals.

OUR FAMILY OF THREE.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to a refreshingly clean and welcoming house. Many little details were evident in welcoming us. The house was very accessible for our daughter who uses a walker. Our extended family had a great time eating outside where there was plenty of room and furniture to accommodate everyone. Overall the experience was very pleasant and we would surely use these accommodations again.
