About Catherine

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

Why Catherine chose Colorado Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Calm, Comfy, Cozy, Cute, and tons of Character

  • 5 of 5
I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into this house, the listing didn't do it justice. The hardwood floors, original doors and hardware, and the wood trim work were gorgeous! The beds were very comfortable with wonderful linens. I felt very much at home! My daughter and son-in-law visited and commented that they felt like they were visiting me in my own home. I fixed dinner for us one night, moving around the kitchen as if it were familiar finding everything I needed. My dog and I took many walks through the neighborhood, and she quickly walked as if she owned it. The neighbors and other dogs were friendly. My daughter is going to be watching real estate in the neighborhood to possibly make their home there. We were convenient to downtown and Old Colorado City for those times we ate out. Phantom Canyon Brewery, Edelweiss, Over Easy with amazing Bloody Mary's, Lucha Cantina, Jose Muldoon's, Jake and Telleys, and Paravicinis are all worth your effort! I also picked up bread, a ham and cheese croissant, and pastries from LaBaguette that were to die for. The German Bakery Wimberger's is also worth your while. To work all of this off, my dog and I enjoyed hikes in Cheyenne Canyon Park and Red Rock Canyon. Catherine was a dear to work with and quick to respond to inquiries. In the middle of my trip I had someone turn in front of me and ended up having a lot added to my plate! I was glad I could relax at the end of the day at "home". Hopefully it will work for me to stay when I return to pick up my car. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Quaint Colorado Springs Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently rented this property for a week. It is over 100 years old and is very quaint. Hardwood floors throughout and original details make it very special. Had a nicely equipped kitchen although we didn't really use it. Had everything you needed for a nice visit. Nice beds and furniture throughout. Our two pups came with us and enjoyed the back yard and nice front yard area. Walking in the neighborhood was a real pleasure. Neighbors on both sides were pleasant and always said hello. House had wireless internet and two nice HD flatscreen tvs with great cable channel selection. A/C was nice to have since it was one of the hottest weeks of the summer. Was very appreciative of Catherine, the owner, and her prompt responses to questions regarding the property. We thoroughly recommend this property and really enjoyed our stay.

Charm and comfort

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found this comfortable, cozy bungalow ideal for a long-weekend visit to see family who live in the same neighborhood. The home is thoughtfully furnished, the kitchen very well equipped, and the setting very quiet. There is plenty of outdoor seating, which we enjoyed on the one warm day. We found the many period details of this early 20th-century house charming. We would definitely want to stay here again on future visits.

Amazing home away

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great family home

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
