About Elaine

Arnie and I live a few miles up the pass in Cascade,Co. I am retired and volunteer for a non profit in Colorado Springs 'Blue Star Recyclers' making sure old computers and electronics don't end up in our landfills or over seas as well as providing jobs for disabled adults.Arnie is the President of 'Blue Star'

Two chihauhaus and 2 Standard Poodle share their home with us as well as 6 hens. We love out door activities, the mountains and vacationing in Mexico (Mazatlan)

Elaine purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Elaine chose Manitou Springs

We bought the 'Dundee Cottage' about 10 years ago for our personal residence.

Manitou Springs is the 'Perfect Hamlet' at the foot of 'Pikes Peak' The cottage was renovated by Arnie and Myself so it's not really a RENTAL.....it's our other home we share with our frinds and guests. Beautiful views of the mountains from the fun deck as well as the glider swing in the front garden. Minutes from' Garden of the Gods' as well as all the regions attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

Manitou Springs is both peaceful and full of life. The many Artisans in town have shops to display their wares. If you want to stay busy there is always an event....something to do.....or if you want to rest peacefully on the deck and watch the day go by....the cottage is off of the main street for your quiet pleasure. Lots of fabulous eateries....both fine dining and a vienna hot dog stand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay! We especially liked that you had solid S.S. pots and pans..so many places only have cheaper non stick. Our young son LOVED the walking stick. We had everything we needed and more.

My Mom stayed the the bunk room and our little son thought it was the "Coolest Bed" He and my mom had fun playtime and stay time in there and made many sweet memories :)

quiet sojourn

  • 4 of 5

A senior couple,we spent a few restful days in Dundee Cottage after driving around Colorado for several days. It is convenient to the downtown area and Pike's Peak Railway and well equipped. We were very comfortable here. Parking was a slight problem but we resolved it. Thanks to our hosts!

Adorable Cottage with many amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for the long July 4th holiday. I wanted to stay near Manitou Springs yet have the privacy that a motel/hotel don't provide. This was the perfect place! It was only a couple of blocks from the center of town, was quiet, well kept and provided all the amenities and more that I needed. Upon arrival, there was a nice note from the owner letting us know where they kept menu's from local restaurants, entertainment brochures if we weren't sure what to do, full propane for the BBQ and so much more. She urged us to drink plenty of water due to the elevation, dropped off extra towels just to make sure we were well provided for, and overall just wonderful!!

All these extra touches, many of which I haven't even mentioned, made us feel like we were staying at a friends house.

I loved the cottage and would recommend it to anyone! In fact, if it's ever put up for sale I know someone who's interested!! :)

Thank you so much for allowing us the privilege of staying in your home!

Perfect for Manitou Springs

  • 5 of 5

Dundee Cottage was the perfect place to stay in Manitou Springs with my wife and two young kids. It had everything we needed, was full of quirky interest, and was ideally situated, just a few minutes walk to downtown. We loved the private deck for outside breakfasts and dinners, but best of all was the quiet and comfortable atmosphere of the cottage. Upon arrival we instantly felt right at home. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great things come in small packages!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is filled with personal touches, from the condiments in the frig to the wine and gift for my grandson left on the kitchen table. Just a short walk to downtown Manitou Springs and many attractions within miles. We made several meals for the whole family and enjoyed the quality pots/ pans and even fired up the BBQ. The home has an awesome furnace and kept the cottage warm during the cold nights. For those of you that are "flat landers" the parking is a bit of a challenge. The cottage is on a steep grade and takes some skill to manage into the small space. A great time was had by all.

A Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 days in this charming, eclectic cottage that reflects the essence of Manitou Springs.

We discovered Dundee Cottage only a week before leaving on our vacation; but, Elaine was extremely helpful in expediting the rental process. When we arrived, a complimentary bottle of wine and the many personal touches welcomed us. It was like staying in a friend's home.

Dundee Cottage was such a comfortable, quiet place to relax after a busy day that no hotel could compare. It was our introduction to vacation rentals and was such a positive experience that we are lookiing forwrd to renting on our next vacation, also.
