COZY DOWNTOWN BUNGALOW, SLEEPS 8

Colorado Springs House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom + Bonus Room, 1 Bath, Large Fenced Yard, All New Furnishings

Early riser? Walk to one of the many local coffee shops downtown or sit on the front porch swing while taking in the mountain view. Either way, after a wonderful night's rest on one of the comfortable new beds, you will be sure to start your day off right.

As you walk into this classic 1905 bungalow, you will be instantly taken with the original details: wood floors throughout, original wood trim, pocket doors, and more.

There are two main bedrooms, one king with a large original built-in closet, and the other has a queen bed. Both beds feature down alternative comforters to keep you warm on those cold Colorado nights.

There is a large selection of movies to watch as you unwind from a busy day of sightseeing. We have also provided a games and many books to choose from.

There are plates for twelve and plenty of glasses to go around in the fully stocked kitchen which has wonderful cabinets that are original to the house. With modern day conveniences such as a brand new (July 2013) dishwasher, refrigerator and electric stove, cooking for yourself or your friends and family will be a pleasurable experience.

A small family room is off the kitchen with a double sleeper sofa and a 32 inch television, and a BluRay DVD player.

Step outside on the covered back patio to enjoy the beautiful Colorado weather for an evening of grilling on the propane grill. There is seating for six at the outdoor dining table as well as an additional six lounge chairs in teh yard. The backyard is landscaped, fully fenced, and large enough for kids and dogs to roam freely.

A bonus sunroom has a single bed and makes for a nice guest room.

There are also two queen air mattresses should you have extra visitors during your stay.

The front porch is a great place to start and end your day, offering mountain views and peacefulness in this quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood.

There is a full-sized washer and dryer with laundry detergent provided.

All furnishings are new in August 2012.

Currently living in the Austin, Texas area, we are a family of five (three kids, mom and dad) who love to travel. I am originally from Michigan but have lived all over as a child (including Colorado Springs!) thanks to military. My husband is from Munich, Germany. He has lived in the U.S. for eleven years now and is an electrical engineer.

Catherine purchased this house in 2012

My husband and I travel as often as possible with our three kids. We typically travel to Europe once a year, but we also try to take at least one vacation per year in America. Wherever we travel to, we often end up renting a house or apartment instead of a hotel. For many years now, we have had a dream of owning a vacation home that we could share with others. Having family in Colorado Springs, we thought this would be the perfect spot. We love the mountains, the dry air (we live in humid Texas!) and the variety that downtown Colorado Springs offers.

I've always loved older homes. When we looked at this house, the realtor pulled out an old skeleton key from the lock box and I fell immediately in love! Walking through the house, with all of the original charm, I felt like it was a dream come true to find a house in such good condition with many of the classic details that a bungalow built in the early 1900's had.

Amazing home away

What a treat to not only have extremely comfy beds but also a truly usable kitchen. I usually bring some essentials just in case but I didn't need them at all. If you want a quiet neighborhood not far from town with the comfort of home this home will be a great fit.

My late review in no way reflects my experience!

Our stay was wonderful and fit our needs perfectly for our extended trip to Colorado Springs for a family wedding. Although advertised as a 2 bedroom, we found the front sun room more than adequate as a 3rd bedroom for our 1B, 1G family. The king bed in the master bedroom is an added bonus.

Each of us had space to chill out and relax in our own space. We had many meals out with extended family, but a "home" to have breakfast and often lunch in was also what we were looking for in a rental.

It was a little nippy in the mornings, so the porch swing saw more use in the afternoon.

The neighborhood was charming and centrally located to the mix of activities we had planned. Lots of fun to just go for walks and take in all the different architectural styles and variety of renovations.

Everything that was promised with the cute little home was there! We had lots of sleeping room, the beds could have been a little softer but wonderful warm comforters and soft sheets. We were able to cook full course meals and even Thanksgiving dinner with all that was provided in the kitchen. The house was clean when we arrived and it was easy to take care of, nice washer and dryer and dishwasher. The neighborhood was quiet as promised and within short distance of all the activities we wanted to partake, Pikes Peak, U.S Olympic Training Center, The Air Force Academy and Chapel. Lots of shopping at Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs! I would recommend this property to all who want a cozy stay in Colorado Springs, and we would even consider renting again the next time we plan our trip to the Springs.

Catherine is a great host and her house is really a home. It is spotlessly clean, has lovely furniture and an extremely well-equipped kitchen. Everything about the house is 5 stars plus for instance the beds and the comfie warm cover. Had great runs in the morning and cappuccino at Raven's Nest nearby.I unreservedly recommend this listing and wiish that I could give it 10 stars instead of five!

Impeccably clean. Lovely inside and outside. Comfortable furniture. Beds and doonas (Aussie word for type of blanket) were perfect. Fantastically well-equipped kitchen. Great location for morning runs and cappuccino nearby. I would unreservedly give Catherine and her house a 20 out of 10!

The house is within walking distance to the heart of downtown Colorado Springs where you can enjoy nightlife, shopping, restaurants, people watching, coffee shops and parks. Tucked away into a quiet residential neighborhood with turn of the century houses which makes for near perfect walks as you can look at all of the different architectural features of the many different homes in the neighborhood. If you need to get away from city life, you can easily be in the mountains within a 15 minute drive. And headed to other parts of the city? With our central location, you can get just about anywhere you need to go in the vicinity within twenty minutes. The house is located only a little over an hour away from Denver.
