                                                                          Per our conversation this morning and follow up regarding damage to the floors, I appreciate your feedback. It is not repairs that are needed, but the rug for protection over a former grate. I understand the misunderstanding and the damage is non-existent and repairs aren’t necessary. Thank you for the clarification. I wouldn’t want others to think that our property is not up to standards.

                                                                          In addition, our description of the property states multiple times stairs, hillside - if stairs are a problem, this isn’t a good fit. It sounds like it wasn’t a good for your dog overall. Unfortunatlelyk there isn’t a lot of dog friendly properties in Manitou Springs. Therefore, options are slim.

                                                                          We do appreciate your feedback and want to make sure that everyone has a great time and enjoys the property to it’s full extent.

We loved the location, great for hiking Pikes Peak and sightseeing around Colorado Springs. We even fit in whitewater rafting at the Royal Gorge of the Arkansas which is about 1.5 to 2 hrs away.

                                                                          Thanks so much!

                                                                          David and Courtney T.

                                                                          My family of 4 (small children and older dog) stayed here and cannot say what a wonderful experience we had. The location of the cabin is unbeatable. Out behind the cabin is a wonderful hiking trail with amazing views not to mention the proximity to the Manitou Incline trail that is within walking distance as well. Miramont Castle is right around the corner and it is within easy walking distance to downtown Manitou Springs. Every night, our family would walk to dinner which was such a peaceful experience. We hiked the Incline, the Intemann trail, and visited the castle. Every morning we would eat breakfast outside, play cards on the comfortable porch couch. The cottage is tiny but in the best way! Very clean with a nice modern bathroom, pictures should really be included as it is a very nice bathroom. The bed was very firm but they nicely provided a waffle mattress pad which helped alot. The sofa bed was definitely in need of being replaced soon but my kids didn't complain at all. Very nice kitchen and cozy atmosphere. Definitely stay here if you want a clean, adorable cottage with great location and great views.
