About Karen

This is my job. My houses were meticulously renovated for the vacation home experience. I decorated in a French theme because of my travels to Paris and France and my love of the culture, architecture and the general feeling that Parisian and French properties exude.

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

Karen purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Karen chose Colorado Springs

I chose this location because of the historic nature of this area of Colorado Springs. It's fun and eclectic. Building began in the late 1800's but most along this historic street are early 1900's. This house was built in 1909.

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.

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

What makes this cottage unique

The charming is home is decorated with items brought back from my world travels to Europe and especially France. Each piece has been thoughtfully chosen for function or style. We have renovated the entire house to high standards. Our houses are above and beyond your average rental house.

Attention to detail is evident when you walk into the property. From the Eiffel Tower salt & pepper shakers to the luxurious king size bed and linens, you will be in heaven!

The outdoor gardens are spectacular in the summer! Even in the winter there is a gazebo and outdoor chimenea to cozy up to.

This romantic Victorian cottage is all about making memories to last a lifetime!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

GUESTBOOK COMMENT ~ Dear Karen, Thank you so much for allowing me the pleasure of staying at your cottage. It was everything you said and more. The decor is absolutely amazing and I have never seen any other rental house cleaner than this one! The bed is so comfortable. I truly didn't want to go back to the real world when I had to leave. You are an exceptional hostess and I will recommend you to all my friends.

Incredible! You have to experience it for yourself.

  • 5 of 5
Karen's place was amazing. It ended up being a wonderfully memorable place for my fiancee and I to stay in (we got engaged there!). The place was clean, comfortable, well decorated, and so convenient from a location standpoint. Karen was very helpful when it came to recommendations for restaurants and activities. What i failed to realize was that there was a whole backyard area with a nice outdoor fireplace and small eating area. GREAT views of Pike's Peak and very quite. No question, I would go back and recommend this place to anyone. What's even better is, it's so well priced, that I couldn't see it making sense to stay anywhere else if you have 2-4 people. Incredible. You have to experience it for yourself!

Excellent short term housing alternative!

  • 5 of 5
Relocating to Colorado Springs, I booked this lovely cottage instead of an extended stay hotel for short term housing. The cottage was clean, comfortable, welcoming, and helped me adjust to my new city. I'd recommend this to any corporate executive or for a fun weekend getaway.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed 8 fabulous nights in this home - it was perfect! Not one detail was forgotten and the home was cozy and beautiful - had everything I needed. This cottage is perfect for a single woman! Everything was 100% exactly as described and photographed. Clean and very well maintained and Karen, the owner was more than gracious and welcoming. It's location was perfectly suited to getting everywhere I wanted to go quickly. I made daily treks to Garden of the Gods - it was truly wonderful. The decor is wonderful and the bed was amazing - I slept like a baby. Coffee in the mornings in the back yard - fabulous. Landscaped and so beautiful and peaceful. I can't recommend a stay either in this home or her other home (which I was fortunate enough to view while I was there) highly enough. It made my vacation perfect. Karen really puts forth the extra effort for her guests. I did not want to leave and I cannot wait to get back!

Perfect Choice for a Couple

  • 5 of 5
There is not much new that I can write that has not been written before. You will want for nothing in this property. The bed is extremely comfortably and there is a full size bathtub, not just a small shower stall. Having a washer and dryer was extremely helpful. We used the grill twice and it was clean and performed well. The place was immaculately clean. You will not be sorry if you choose this property.

Perfect for a couple's getaway

Perfect for a couple's getaway
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I met in Colorado Springs years ago and hadn't been back since that first summer. So we decided to travel to the Springs to celebrate our 10th anniversary this month. This house is very attractive and comfortable, and its small, open floor plan perfectly suits a couple's retreat. When entering the back kitchen door, the kitchen flows into the bedroom, which flows into the dining and den area. These rooms are separated by partial walls with no doors, giving the interior of the home the same feel that a "suite" might have at a hotel.

The home is at the northern edge of a beautiful residential area with stately old homes. The immediate proximity of the home is actually somewhat more commercialized and not quite as nice, but the home itself feels like a quiet haven. Despite being situated on a relatively busy road, the home's front porch is shielded by two shade trees and makes for a very enjoyable cup of coffee in the morning. We did not have time to enjoy the backyard, but it contains an attractive garden, firewood, a chiminea, chairs, and an archway/gazebo decorated with Christmas lights.

The central location of the home is amazing. We were 20 minutes from EVERY part of Colorado Springs, and places like Old Colorado City were even closer.

All in all, we loved our stay in this home and will almost certainly consider staying there again next time we are in the Springs.

PS. We had an excellent dinner at "The Margarita at Pine Creek" and would highly recommend their 5-course dinner! Also, "La Baguette" in Old Colorado City is perfect for breakfast/brunch. Finally, Colorado Coffee Merchants is around the corner from the house (about 2 blocks away on Fillmore Street) and makes a very good cup of coffee if you don't want to brew your own coffee at the house.
