Welcome to our 1890s cottage, conveniently located in Downtown Colorado Springs at 20 North Corona St, Colorado Springs, CO 80903, just 5 blocks from everything that historic Downtown Colorado Springs has to offer! Pets are welcome, too... We have a sister cottage at 18 N Corona St, (VRBO #355182) also available for rent to accomodate larger parties.
This light, bright 750 square foot one bedroom cottage is the perfect spot to explore and experience all the wonders that Colorado Springs has to offer! It has classic Victorian 10 foot ceilings!
The cottage is located on a quiet non-through street so there is not very much traffic and easy on street parking is always available.
The bedroom has a queen sized thick, comfy mattress. We also have a pretty comfortable fold up bed and a twin size air mattress which can be set up in the living room, so we can accomodate up to five or six people (if someone sleeps on the 2 couches).
The property has a mix of antiques and contemporary furnishings. The living room has an antique armoire for hanging your clothes, as well as a smaller closet in the bedroom. There are new sofas in the living room and the dining room. The dining room set seats four to six people.
There is a new flat screen 22' television in the bedroom and there is a 42' Toshiba High Def Flat Screen TV in the Livingroom. Both TVs have full cable TV service. We are also set up for wireless internet access so you can surf the web and there is a phone in the cottage with free local and long distance service, as well.
There are fir wood floors throughout (no carpeting at all), a full kitchen, complete with everything you could need for a fun vacation! There are air-conditioners in the bedroom and the dining room (which cool the whole place),
The kitchen has a dishwaster, but is not an eat in kitchen. It's a nice size for preparing food with a large pantry, as well as the doorway leading to the back porch. The washing machine and drier are in the kitchen as well.
The bathroom consists of a claw foot tub/shower, a small sink and a toilet. It's a little tight but is quite functional.
The small (approximately 10 feet by 20 feet) fenced in back yard area has a gas barbeque, as well as a patio table and chairs on the small covered porch for al fresco dining. It has a mini-view of Pikes Peak. There is a chain link fence in the back yard with an empty lot behind it. This is an urban yard isn't that isn't landscaped. Because there are no neighbors behind you, it's pretty quiet. I own the cottage next door which is also a VRBO property (355182).
We allow pets, but please let us know if for some reason you need a kennel or some type of help with your dog during your stay and we will try to accomodate your pooch.

We have 3 Corgi dogs of our own, all rescued from the Humane Society, and our daughter has a 4th Corgi, also a rescue... We take our 3 pups with us whenever we can, and they love taking long hikes with us around the many parks in the Colorado Springs area. We have been married for close to 30 years. We lived in New York City for our first 35+ years, and have lived in Colorado for the past 17 years. We love it here! (You will too!)
We lived in downtown Colorado Springs for five years. We had fallen in love with the downtown area when we first moved here and when this unique property came up for sale, we couldn't resist!
Colorado Springs has many open space areas and parks. We have 3 Corgi dogs (all rescue dogs, adopted at the Colorado Springs Humane Society), and we take them hiking up into the surrounding parks and mountains. We loved being in the heart of all that Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and Manitou have to offer!
