Bob and I came out to Colorado in 1997 and fell in love with the mountain town of Cascade. Being close to Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, the airport and all needed shopping areas, we felt if we were going to live in Colorado we had to be in the mountains. We purchased the B & B and then the Ramona cottage. We love entertaining and gourmet cooking.

Sandy purchased this cottage in 2001

This area is a great place to view the mountains and getaway from the city.

The cottage is just a short walk to the Wines of Colorado as they offer wine tasting and great entrees for lunch or dinner,or Mildreds Cafe has great breakfasts, and homemade cinnamon rolls to die for. We are close to the drive up Pikes Peak or visiting Santa's Workshop at the North Pole.

Ramona Cottage

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Pros:

The beds were clean and very comfortable.
It is a very quiet location except for a barking dog.

Cons:
The place smelled like gas and old bacon grease. Most of the windows were painted shut so we couldn't use the fresh mountain air.
The sink in the second bathroom was clogged so we used the bathroom sink where the tub was. Quite inconvenient.
The tub hadn't been cleaned.
The trash cans were dirty.
Any kitchen utensils used had to be prewashed.
Owner's Response: We have had the Ramona cottage for 12 years, no one has ever complained, we have repeat guests quite often.
The windows have screens, all one has to do is unlock, they open just fine. The comments on dirty items is just not so. We live 5 minutes from the cottage, and nothing was said when we came to pick up trash. I guess this couple was mad because we were not happy that they parked their bicycles in our living room.

We stayed in the Ramona in August and it was fabulous. We felt like we really "got away" even though Manitou Springs was only minutes away for anything you need. It was clean and comfortable. The hot tub was great. The hiking trail up the street was our favorite part and was beautiful. We'd love to return soon.

For starters, the location is awesome. The owners are two of the nicest people on earth. The house is adorable with charm. Wish the front window had curtains for night time privacy. The view is so awesome, the giant picture windows were stared out every moment we were indoors. The porch also provided a great view. The master bed is one of the most comfortable. Convenient to everything. We rode horses, hiked, went to a drive-in movie, shopped in town, dined out, went to the North Pole, river rafting, vineyards, Royal Gorge, you name it, we have done it. The only down side it the claw foot tub. Gorgeous, but not convenient. Most of us shower, so we all had to use one bathroom for that. Slowed us down a bit. I have recommended this place to lots of friends. We will definitely be back. I cannot say enough good things about the owners. Love Bob & Sandy. If you are considering this place, GO! You will love it too! Just take really good care of it. I want it to stay nice for my family. See you next year Ramona Cottage.

Honey Moon in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I were married in Red Rock park in Denver and spent a wonderful honeymoon at the Cottage 3 years ago. The owners were very friendly, invited us up to their place, and even left us chocolate covered strawberries when we returned from our vows that night. I am starting to plan another trip up there for our 4 year anniversary. I loved everything about the cottage and location. I definitely want to explore a lot more on the next visit. The only draw back to the entire trip was the motion lights kept going on late in the evening, scaring the crap out of both of us thinking it was a bear or mountain lion. A few nights later coming back from Cripple Creek we finally saw the culprit, a fat cat sleeping on the wicker loveseat on the front porch. I still get a laugh out telling that story to family and friends. Looking forward to visiting again.

I stayed in Ramona Cottage with my wife and we both enjoyed the tranquility and charm of the place. The owners were very accommodating and the walking trails nearby were beautiful. We will be back!

Owner's Response: We take pride in our property and make it comfortable for our guests. The favorite among our guests is the great hikes across the mountain stream and up to the waterfall for a picnic.
