Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in the beautiful house, I was amazed!!! The main floor had a more than well equipped kitchen. Beautiful hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances. The laundry room was perfect! New washer and dryer so we didn't have any dirty laundry to take home! The dining room was very spacious with a den attached that the kids took advantage of the video games! Another den with beautiful views of the cog and the mtn's was a center point after eating dinner. Downstairs, the two bedrooms were plenty for 5 people! Bunk beds with a trundle and another twin bed in one room and a queen bed in the other room. The bathroom downstairs was fantastic as well! The front porch was great for watching the Hikers and Pukes Peak Marathon runners! Oh forgot to mention the half bath on main floor. On the 3rd floor the 2 master suites were just amazing! We had the main master which was beautifully decorated and had mountain views. With a flick of a switch you had a romantic fire going in the fireplace along with the sitting area in the window. The room was huge!! The bathroom, well, was perfect! I took advantage of the claw foot tub after our Ascent of Pikes Peak. Loved that it had shower handle attached to the bath faucet. Beautiful oil rubbed bronze fixtures. Glass shower was amazing and the toilet was separate so u could do ur thing while the other got ready lol. There was plenty of parking and no one ever got our spots. Paige was great to deal with, sad I didn't get to meet her In person due to our late night flight delays;(. Overall amazing place to stay and I recommend it for anyone!! Hope to reserve it again!

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for my daughter's graduation. We have 4 adult children and there was plenty of room and bathrooms. The house was spotless when we arrived and fairly well stocked (buy toilet paper, not a lot on hand) The kitchen is very well stocked to be able to cook for a group, the dining table is large. Loved the two upstairs bathrooms and bedrooms ( although the master does not have a closet).

There is parking for four cars but be aware- there is no sign that states it is a private lot and we had several issues with others parking there, including one young man who blatantly walked away after I asked him to move, stating it was not posted and he did not have to. Also, the house sits right by the cog railway, the melodrama and the incline hiking trail- traffic and noise begins at 5 AM (no joke!) and continues all day until close to 10 PM. So not exactly a quiet location. The back patio is small but adequate, the front porch gives you a view of road, so not a private place to sit. Views from the windows are great. The traffic thru Manitou Springs can be heavy and slow moving when you need to get into the Springs. But if you factor the above in and none of it matters to you (only the traffic became an issue for us) this is a great house. My kids loved the fact they could walk to the incline.
Not sure I would stay here with small children unless they love to walk and hike and can do so on the steep incline that is the hill the house sits on (back and forth into downtown Manitou) and at the altitude.
