VICTORIAN JEWEL NEAR DOWNTOWN WITH 2-CAR GARAGE-MOUNTAIN VIEWS-LOW MONTHLY RATES

Colorado Springs House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 2 Full Bathrooms (Sleeps 10+) Great Outdoor Space for Entertaining

Take a trip back in time when you stay in our beautifully restored 1890's Victorian era home with lovely mountain views. It has been completely restored with all the modern-day amenities but retains all of the old-world charm to include high ceilings, original woodwork, crown molding, ornate hand-carved fireplace mantle, stained glass and bay windows, french doors and beautiful art-deco light fixtures.

We have tastefully furnished the house and included everything that anyone could need to feel right at home. The beautiful new kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with spices, basic food items, and condiments. Gorgeous, original hard-wood floors throughout the house make for a very clean environment. The property includes a detached, oversized two-car garage and a wonderful yard and patio area with a BBQ grill ready for your use.

This is a unique home in the core of the city sitting on 2/3's of an acre, allowing for lots of privacy. None of our living space is in the basement....all rooms are bright and cheerful. We have central air conditioning and also have dual hot-water tanks to provide ample hot water for large groups.

For your peace of mind, locks are re-keyed prior to new arrivals.

We are centrally located within two miles of our vibrant downtown area. We are one mile north of Colorado College, and only four blocks north of Penrose Hospital. You will find it very easy to reach all of the most popular attractions, to include: Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, The North Pole, Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, Olympic Training Center, Air Force Academy, Seven Falls, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and more - all within about 15 minutes of the house. The Royal Gorge, Cripple Creek and Denver are within one hour.

For hikers, runners and bicyclists, the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail is just 6 blocks west of our house.

We call our home The 3 R's. REST after a day of sight seeing by curling up with a good book or watching some of the best television programming available. RELAX on the front porch or the back patio with family and friends; and REJUVENATE your body and spirits, as stress becomes a distant memory. All beds have top-of-the line Sealy Posturepedic firm/plush mattresses for everyone's comfort level. No attention to detail has been missed. Please call us or drop us an email so we can begin helping you plan a memorable visit. We will do everything possible to make your stay comfortable and relaxing.

About Sheryl Courter

My husband and I moved from Seattle/Wichita in 2004, because the city offered everything we both wanted as we started our new lives together. We love Colorado Springs and are very excited about sharing our city and its surrounding area. There is so much to do and see here. A simple drive in the mountains never fails to rejuvenate our spirits. We enjoy hiking and would love to share our favorite spots.

Sheryl Courter purchased this house in 2008

Why Sheryl Courter chose Colorado Springs

We chose Colorado for it's natural beauty, great weather, and multitude of outdoor activities. From our home, you will be in the center of everything. Enjoy visiting our extraordinary attractions as well as hiking, bicycling, fishing, and exploring local history. You will also have quick and easy access to I-25, and you can be in Denver in no more than an hour.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located on the fringe of our city's most desirable Old North End neighborhood with its elaborate Victorian homes most of which were built between 1890 and 1901 with monies from the Cripple Creek gold strike. If you enjoy walking, you will love partaking in the many self-guided walking tours of the area. Visit our downtown also and enjoy your choice of outside cafes, many fine dining establishments, museums, parks, charming boutiques, nightclubs, the Penrose Library, the Fine Art Center, and the Pikes Peak Center.

A walk down memory lane

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six, 4 adults and 2 kids, traveled to Colorado Springs for a family reunion and vacation. Our mother was born and raised in Colorado Springs and this house was perfect for us. Sheryl went above and beyond to supply extra patio chairs and a cooler for our reunion bbq to make it a memorable event for everyone. The house has a nicely stocked kitchen, a great front porch and huge yard, a large dining room table for everyone to sit around, and the favorite with our family, air conditioning. All 4 bedrooms have very comfortable beds, with 3 big bedrooms upstairs and a ‘Grannie’ bedroom downstairs. The house is centrally located to downtown Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods, Colorado College, the Air Force Academy and many other attractions. Our family will be returning to this Victorian jewel again!

This property is beautifully decorated and acessorized. Sheryl couldn't have been more hospitable and willing to ensure we had everything our party of seven needed. The location was great, having the garage kept all the bikes, trailers, and equipment secure which made for ease of mind. Truly a home away from home that I would highly recommend it to anyone.

An adorable gem in Colorado Springs

  • 5 of 5
What an incredibly beautiful gem of a home in Colorado Springs. The home is lovingly cared for by its owners and immaculately maintained. The pictures on the website accurately show the home's beauty. We loved the views of Pike's Peak from several locations in the home. We so enjoyed the front porch where we sat and read, especially in the evenings....and the area off the laundry room with the table, umbrella and chairs for our morning time of breakfast and reading. We loved having the grill to cook two of our meals and the kitchen is so roomy with the convenience of the eat in kitchen table. We enjoyed two meals (6 adults) at the large dining room table. The internet was very reliable as well as the TV connection. The two hot water heaters were a treat with 6 adults.

We loved the attractions and restaurants as well: Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Olympic Training Center, World Figure Skating Museum and Hall of Fame, Florissant Fossil Beds (1 mile hike), Memorial Park for July 4th Philharmonic Concert and Fireworks, Monument Park to see our daughter and son-in-law complete the "Half on the Fourth" - half-marathon! Great parks!!

Expanded our eating cuisines to include Caspian Café Mediterranean (excellent - ate there two times), Uchenna (wonderful Ethiopian food), Phantom Canyon Brewing Company (after viewing the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Parade), Poor Richards Restaurant for lunch and several others.

I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Colorado Springs - excellent care and attention to our needs by the owners. We would certainly return again....and the price was just right!

Thank you, Sheryl for all you did to make us so welcome and cared for!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Review: I had the pleasure of staying at this residence for almost three weeks while on business, and will definitely stay here again for vacation.

Sheryl was a wonderful hostess and a joy to work with!The house was stocked with everything I could need, from toiletries to cooking spices, coffee, etc. I wish I took photos of the beautiful house! The downstairs bedroom is very quiet with a full bed; when my husband visited we stayed in the large upstairs bedroom on the south side with a super comfortable queen bed. This is a corner lot, fully enclosed (including a detached two car garage) with a nice picket fence and grass. The front porch facing the street has comfy seating to watch bicyclists go by, there's a large table & charcoal grill (with everything you need for grilling in the garage; a lighter is in the glass hutch)on the east side. My favorite is the great little west facing deck outside the breakfast nook with views of Pike's Peak. The kitchen- wonderful! Efficient washer/dryer. The house is very tastefully decorated- a Victorian feel, but not "flouncy". When my manly-man husband came to visit he loved everything about it, especially the separate tv room with leather couches which he enjoyed when I had to work a couple hours.

The location is extremely convenient and very central. I had to work all over the city, from Peterson AFB to Northridge and it was 20 minutes to the farthest points. Manitou Springs, Old Colorado city, Red Rocks and Garden of the Gods are all less than ten minutes away, downtown is just a couple miles south.

You can walk, run or ride the 16 mile Pikes Peak Greenway Trail from the end of the street- https://www.springsgov.com/units/parksrec/maps/mppgrnwya.htm head south to Roswell Park/downtown & north towards the sports complex,& shopping center with Costco, Panera Bread, Chipotle, etc (2 mi). *Use your situational awareness; I was told there had been some issues along the trail with homeless being a little aggressive, usually in late evening; however, this trail has lots of users & I never felt unease during the day.
The Visitors Center at 515 S. Cascade, down the road has free maps, brochures, hiking maps, etc. Also worth visiting: Memorial Park (armed services, fire fighter), Airforce Academy, Olympic Training Center & Florence, CO is the "Antique Capitol of Colorado" (great lunch/coffee at the Pour House)!

Boonzaiijer's Dutch Bakery, less than a mile away on Fillmore for the most amazing coffee & treats

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5
Review: Thanksgiving week 2013, family gathered to celebrate the holiday. We had a wonderful time visiting, exploring, cooking, eating & enjoying music. The house was amazing & had plenty of room for the whole family. Prior to our arrival, whenever I had a question for our hostess Sheryl, all I had to do was email & she would respond very quickly. The house was really well stocked & even included our morning coffee. I highly recommend this beautiful home for an outstanding vacation.

Very inviting....

This was a great place for my family to spend 5 days at Thanksgiving. It was large enough to accommodate all of us, yet cozy enough to feel like home. It is an excellent place to stay.
