About Karen

This darling cottage was meticulously renovated for the vacation home experience. We decorated in a French theme because of my travels to Paris and France and my love of the culture, architecture and the general feeling that Parisian and French properties exude.

I enjoy sharing our city with others and making people feel comfortable and special. I will do my best to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

The picture is of me in Paris at the Trocadero with the Eiffel Tower!

Karen purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Karen chose Colorado Springs

I chose this location because of the historic nature of this area of Colorado Springs. It's fun, vibrant and eclectic. Building began in the late 1800's but most along this historic street are early 1900's. This house was built in 1909.

It is just a few blocks to the I-25 corridor and is minutes from the city center. You can get virtually anywhere in the city within 20 minutes from this location.

I have lived in Colorado Springs for over 30 years and know the area quite well so I can offer concierge service in any area you need.

What makes this cottage unique

The charming is home is decorated with items brought back from my world travels to Europe and especially France. Each piece has been thoughtfully chosen for function or style. We have renovated the entire house to high standards. Our houses are above and beyond your average rental house.

Attention to detail is evident when you walk into the property. From the Eiffel Tower salt & pepper shakers to the luxurious king size bed and linens.

The outdoor gardens are spectacular in the summer! Even in the winter there is a gazebo and outdoor chimenea to cozy up to.

This romantic Victorian cottage is all about making memories to last a lifetime!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

GUESTBOOK COMMENT ~ Dear Karen, Thank you so much for allowing me the pleasure of staying at your cottage. It was everything you said and more. The decor is absolutely amazing and I have never seen any other rental house cleaner than this one! The bed is so comfortable. I truly didn't want to go back to the real world when I had to leave. You are an exceptional hostess and I will recommend you to all my friends.

Tiny House with Adorable Charm

  • 5 of 5

Clean Clean Clean!

This immaculate cottage is perfect for any occasion. You walk into this beautiful garden & you're given a code to enter the premises (so much better than keeping up with a card/key); you'll immediately think you stepped into a shabby chic French cottage. After seeing the adorable kitchen, you'll find yourself wanting to fall into this amazing bed full of pillows with high thread count sheets. Look above and you'll see a chandelier. After that, you'll walk into the living area with table, chairs and sofa; along with an entertainment center with cable. The bathroom is perfect size & CLEAN; along with a full washer & dryer so you can wash a load each day.

Miss Karen makes sure you have a wonderful experience; and she deserves FIVE STARS for this cottage.

A lovely stay in a warm and welcoming cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a couple of lovely days in this beautiful, small cottage. We were looking for a "home base" from which to explore the many natural attractions in the Colorado Springs, as well as a cozy refuge to return to after a day of outdoor exploration. We absolutely achieved this goal. The cottage is ideal for 2 people. The interior spaces are warm and welcoming, the decor very tastefully done and the hospitality touches by Karen, the owner, most endearing. The french cookies, in particular were delicious! The rental process was very easy, Karen was most helpful and in great disposition to assist if anything were needed; we did not get to call on her for this purpose, though, because everything about the cottage was perfect!! We would happily return!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We were charmed from the moment we walked in. My wife and I used the cottage as a home base for many mountain hikes, all within an easy drive. It was always so nice to return to such a comfortable abode.

Perfection!! My husband and I stayed for one week for our anniversary, it was perfect! Cozy, clean, romantic and supplied with all the comforts of home! Karen's attention to detail, and hospitality is above and beyond...I say this from experience in comparison to other places we have stayed! We have stayed in places that were at least twice the amount and they could not hold a candle to the cottage!! Its precious in every way and we will return if back in Colorado to visit again!! Love it!!

Adorable !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cute little house for a week on our Colorado vacation and absolutely loved our stay there everything you need is at the house and it is very clean and well kept my favorite part I was able to do the weeks laundry in 2 loads in the nice washing machine so we didn't have to try and pack a suitcase full of dirty laundry for the flight home that I would have had to do when I got home !! Lovely little house and so close to everything that we wanted to do and so much better than searching for a parking space waiting to check in trapsing down a hallway in a huge hotel and very private nice neighborhood and you can see the mountains from the lovely little front porch !! Highly recommend to anyone going to Colorado Springs on vacation
