The kitchen is stocked with coffee and a variety of teas. The home is provided with every convenience – ankle-length robes, lots of board games, entertainment libraries, wireless high-speed internet, and luxurious linens and high-end mattresses that promise a restful night’s sleep.
Cottage-on-the-Green is a beautiful custom home with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, large open great room featuring fireplace and expansive views of Antler Creek Golf Course, all-together dining with seating for 10, and an elegant cherry wood library of fiction and non-fiction books. The large main level master suite has his and her sinks, walk in closet, and a two person soaker tub.

Our busy growing family has always enjoyed Cottage-on-the-Green as a restful gathering place after work, school, or a hard day of vacation.
Skiing and snowboarding day trips always ended in the hot tub to rest and rejuvenate sore muscles. Bicycle tours through Black Forest had to include an al fresco lunch grilled on our outdoor bistro at the end of the ride.
Jane Austin, Frances Hodgson Burnett and our other favorite authors seem just a little more enchanting when read secluded from the rest of the world in the midst of our own Secret Garden.
Your family and friends may enjoy, as ours have, the spontaneous X-Box championships (X-Box not included) with friends and family on the big screen, a stringed quartet around the fire pit outside (high school orchestral members not included), 4-Square mayhem in the 2-car garage (sidewalk chalk/balls included), or a 5K, 10K, or 20K run on the local paved and natural trails.
We enjoy our peace and tranquility and we enjoy a little life on the edge too. You can find it all here at Cottage-on-the-Green.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
We built Cottage-on-the-Green looking to find that perfect lifestyle blend of being close to town and all the activities but far enough away to enjoy bicycling country roads and lounging under quiet sunsets. We chose Antler Creek Golf Course because of its accessible location and beautifully maintained grounds.
You'll enjoy the convenience of being centrally located to all that Colorado has to offer. To the west you'll find the downtown area including the Fine Arts Center and the Colorado Springs Orchestra at the Pikes Peak Center, Sky Sox minor league baseball at Security Service field, rock climbing at Garden of the Gods, and of course the Air Force Academy.
Heading south will bring you to the spectacular productions at the World Arena, professional racing at Pikes Peak International Raceway, and up to class V rapids on the Arkansas River.
A quick drive to the north features the Renaissance Festival, Denver's Elitch Gardens amusement park or the world renowned Botanical Gardens, and you can pick your flavor of professional sports from the Broncos at Sports Authority Field, the Rockies at Coors Field, and both the Nuggets and the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center.
Our home was built in 2005 specifically to host large gatherings. We wanted to be the “hang out place” for our boys and their high school friends. So, not only did we build large rooms to fit lots of friends but we landscaped with even larger parties in mind: the weekend 'golf retreat”; The Big Game on the big screen; the New Year’s Eve hot tub party; 4th of July fireworks from the golf course clubhouse two blocks away (or avoid the crowds—we watch from the front lawn); the high school graduation party, the marriage rehearsal dinner, and a weekly young adults group from our church that met here over dinner for years. If you know people, and you need space, you’ll find it at Cottage-on-the-Green.
This home and Cathy and Steve are awesome. Our family of four stayed in their beautiful home for three weeks in August with 11 other extended family members visiting from Southern Colorado and Alberta Canada. We had such a great time and this home was PERFECT for our needs. With a second guest bedroom on the main floor, both sets of Grandparents could avoid the stairs. With the additional bedrooms downstairs the kids had separation when they needed it and we all lived outside on the patio, in the backyard and around the fireplace making s'mores. Cathy and Steve were so lovely to work with and this home has everything you need for dining inside or out, for preparing large meals, keeping everyone entertained...you name it! Our daughters are still talking about the recreation centre and pool just a short walk from the house.
Our stay was great! The house was beautiful and very well kept. It was nice to have a place to relax after our busy days of sight seeing.
This was our first rental house we have used for a vacation with our grown children and grandchildren, and we found it to be an excellent experience and very relaxing. This home has everything one needs for a worrisome-free vacation. We ate most of our meals in the house, and the kitchen provided all of the necessities for preparing those meals (except the food of course). The patio was refreshing at dusk as we enjoyed the hot tub, the grill, the gas fire pit and the s'mores, and appreciated the view of the golf course, Pikes Peak in the distance and sunsets. A few us went golfing on the course and found it to be an excellent golf course and well worth the rate they charged. Convenient to the home are Wal-Mart and many stores that are only two miles away. As everyone in our family commented a number of times, "This place is really nice!" The pictures on the website don't do justice to the actual experience.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Cottage on the Green very much! It was perfect for our family which included a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old. Owners had taken great care to have everything renters would need. The kitchen was better stocked than my own. We would return again and I am recommending it to friends. Owners are very good and prompt to work with.
We were in Colorado Springs for UCCS graduation. We could not have asked for anything better and Cottage on the Green was the perfect home for us. There were eight of us traveling together and all of us were thrilled with the property. This home was welcoming, warm and beautifully decorated. Having coffee on the back porch in the morning and watching the sun set from the fire pit seating area was such a bonus!
This home is a true gem - I haved used VRBO many times to book vacation properties and hands down this is the nicest home I've rented. It was spotless and you can tell the owner takes great pride in making sure the guest has a great experience. The owner was very responsive when I placed my initial inquiry and was very easy to work with at check in and check out.
We enjoyed everything about the home - when using the kitchen to prepare meals you'll find enverything you need close at hand. In the pantry there are the fixings for smores that you can cook on the fire pit on the patio. Some other nice extra touches include the large beach towels to use when relaxing in the hot tub and fluffy robes for lounging. Downstairs in the family room you'll find an amazing library of DVDs and games to play along with Netflix and Hulu - everyone will find the perfect entertainment option.
If my travels take me to the Colorado Springs area in the future I'll book here again!!
