Why Manitou Dreams chose Colorado Springs

It's a great piece of Manitou Springs history. built at the turn on the 19th century. The home is located only two blocks from downtown Manitou, so it's in a very walkable location. The fact that it's located near the eastern edge of downtown means you miss most traffic when you drive. Also there is off-street parking in the rear of the home which is a huge plus in Manitou

What makes this house unique

The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the edge of downtown Manitou Springs.

It provides great walking or driving access to the many area attractions which makes it a great home base.

It comes with three off-street parking spaces, a huge plus for Manitou!

There is an outside area where marijuana may be legally smoked.

There are natural mineral springs freely available in Manitou Springs

You are within walking distance of the World Famous Penny Arcade

perfection!

We had a 5-sibling reunion in this sweet house and found it to be heavenly. It was beautifully furnished with antiques and updated with modern amenities, spacious and private, fun colors and very good vibes. The owner had thought of everything. Very comfortable and in a great location!

USAFA Graduation 2013

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for the 2013 USAFA Graduation. Was a wonderful stay and we had all the conveniences of home, including the ability to grill outside. The drive was not far from the Academy, and was easy to get to for all the graduation week activities. It was nice to walk to the park with the kids and check out the many springs of Manitou as well as all the downtown shops.
Was so much better than staying in a hotel and for a very resonable rate! The home is beautiful and has a lot of character, but all the modern conviences, such as satellite tv. You won't need to pack a lot since it's pretty much like being at home. And unlike other homes we've stayed in, there were PLENTY of towels and toilet paper, both important when you're away from home!
I would highy recommend this home! We had a lovely time and would stay here again.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, son-in-law, two grandsons and I recently stayed at this beautiful Victorian house and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location was perfect, just off the main street of Manitou Springs, and convenient to everything we wanted to do. The house was even more beautiful than we expected from the pictures on the website. It was very clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The surrounding scenery was breathtaking and we even got to see deer in the backyard most mornings. The owner, Michael, was available anytime we needed anything. Our whole experience was pleasurable and we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay with beautiful surroundings in the Manitou Springs or Colorado Springs area.

Convenient, Quaint, & Capacious

Convenient, Quaint, & Capacious
  • 5 of 5
Four couples rented this house, which is just a block or so up from Manitou Ave., easy to get to the shops and restaurants without having to find a parking spot along the strip. We had room for four vehicles in the space behind the house. There are two outdoor spots, a patio off the kitchen with an eating area under a shade tree. A narrow deck runs the length of the second floor, room enough for a small table and chairs, and enhanced by a mountain view, The stairs off the deck to the parking area simplifies getting luggage to and from the second floor.

The house is divided into a self-contained apartment on the first floor and another on the second floor. Both have two bedrooms, a kitchen, parlor, bathroom, and laundry. One of the bedrooms on the second floor is smaller than the rest, but you can stow your gear in a large room that is currently the parlor (which, per the owner, might switch roles with the small bedroom in the future). The lower level has an additional full bath and large dining room. The first floor kitchen is roomy and also has a breakfast table. Because of its age, the closet space in some rooms is minimal and there are some architectural quirks, but the larger common rooms offset them. The house was clean and appeared recently refreshed and the furnishings were in good condition. The wi-fi worked well. The owner is responsive and congenial. If we had another large group, I would rent this again.

June Visit

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with 7 other family members (total of 9) and we had a wonderful time. Even though there were so many of us it didn't seem crowded. It was wonderful to have a place so close to Downtown Manitou yet so quiet, peaceful, and senic. Additionally, living in this historic home gave made us feel as though we had stepped back in time! Wonderful place to stay.
