Overview

About the property

Charming 2 Bedroom + Bonus Room, 1 Bath, Large Fenced Yard,

Early riser? Walk to one of the many local coffee shops downtown or sit on the front porch swing while taking in the mountain view. Either way, after a wonderful night's rest on one of the comfortable beds, you will be sure to start your day off right. As you walk into this classic 1905 bungalow, you will be instantly taken with the original details: wood floors throughout, original wood trim, pocket doors, and more.

There are two main bedrooms: one king with two closets including an original built-in, one queen bed. Linens are provided.

The bathroom is newly remodeled (October 2015) and has double sinks, and a bathtub/ shower combination.

The living room, with a picture window that faces the mountains, has a queen sleeper sofa and loveseat as well as a 40 inch television, BluRay player and a Wii. There is a large selection of movies to watch as you unwind from a busy day of sightseeing. We have also provided games and many books to choose from. If you prefer to watch something on TV, there are over 100 channels to choose from. The house is equipped with wireless internet.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all you will need for cooking at home. The kitchen has wonderful cabinets that are original to the house, but is equipped with modern day conveniences such as a brand new (July 2013) dishwasher, refrigerator and electric stove.

A small family room is off the kitchen with a double sleeper sofa, a 32 inch television, and a BluRay DVD player.

Step outside on the covered back patio to enjoy the beautiful Colorado weather for an evening of grilling on the propane grill. There is seating for six at the outdoor dining table as well as an additional lounge chairs in the yard. The yard fully fenced, and large enough for kids and dogs to roam freely. There is a propane fire pit as well.

A bonus sunroom has a single bed and makes for a nice guest room.

The front porch is a great place to start and end your day, offering mountain views and peacefulness in this quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood.

There is a full-sized washer and dryer with laundry detergent provided.

About the area: The house is located in an established neighborhood that is close to all area attractions. Staying in this central neighborhood, you can get to Garden of the Gods, The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Pikes Peak, Cave of the Winds and historic Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City within minutes.

About Catherine

Currently living in the Austin, Texas area, we are a family of five (three kids, mom and dad) who love to travel. I am originally from Michigan but have lived all over as a child (including Colorado Springs!) thanks to military. My husband is from Munich, Germany. He has lived in the U.S. for eleven years now and is an electrical engineer.

Catherine purchased this house in 2012

Why Catherine chose Colorado Springs

My husband and I travel as often as possible with our three kids. We typically travel to Europe once a year, but we also try to take at least one vacation per year in America. Wherever we travel to, we often end up renting a house or apartment instead of a hotel. For many years now, we have had a dream of owning a vacation home that we could share with others. Having family in Colorado Springs, we thought this would be the perfect spot. We love the mountains, the dry air (we live in humid Texas!) and the variety that downtown Colorado Springs offers.

What makes this house unique

I've always loved older homes. When we looked at this house, the realtor pulled out an old skeleton key from the lock box and I fell immediately in love! Walking through the house, with all of the original charm, I felt like it was a dream come true to find a house in such good condition with many of the classic details that a bungalow built in the early 1900's had.

Pleasant comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay over the Christmas holidays in this pleasant comfortable older home in a very nice neighborhood. We appreciated coming in to find some fun holiday decorations around the house. The house was plenty warm even though the weather was very cold while we were there. The kitchen, though small, was well stocked with all the needed equipment to make our holiday meals. We found the beds to be comfortable as well. My son's little dog was able to enjoy running around safely in the fenced back yard.

Catherine was a pleasure to work with, and very considerate when we needed to make adjustments to our stay due to unforeseen events.

Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cozy home in Colorado Springs. The house was comfortable, well appointed, and had everything we needed- cozy bedrooms with plenty of storage, a beautiful updated bath, fully stocked kitchen, and plenty of room in the living areas. The off street parking and washer/dryer were appreciated as well! We found the neighborhood convenient and quiet but active, and enjoyed walking our dog around the area. All in all, a fantastic stay! We would love to book this property again on future trips.

Quirky house with everything you need to be comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

As our stay got closer, I kept asking the owner "will there be this or should we bring our own?" but the house had everything that we needed, and more! Seriously, there was even a savings card for the grocery store that was closest.

The house was very quaint in a quiet and nice neighborhood in a good part of Colorado Springs, central to seemingly everything. It was great having the two TVs, so the kids could play on the Wii and I could watch baseball. We loved the kitchen and dining room the most. Our dog stayed with us and was very comfortable in the fenced-in backyard.

We had 3 adults and 3 children, plus the dog, and this place was truly perfect for us. Catherine was very quick to answer any questions we had and we hope to stay here or at her other property again next year!

Comfy and serviceable.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. Just the right size for our group. We appreciated the well outfitted kitchen. Our only suggestion would be to add a knife sharpener. We especially appreciated the laundry and the outdoor grill. Everything worked very well and we were very comfortable there

The house is within walking distance to the heart of downtown Colorado Springs where you can enjoy nightlife, shopping, restaurants, people watching, coffee shops and parks. Tucked away into a quiet residential neighborhood with turn of the century houses which makes for near perfect walks as you can look at all of the different architectural features of the many different homes in the neighborhood. If you need to get away from city life, you can easily be in the mountains within a 15 minute drive. And headed to other parts of the city? With our central location, you can get just about anywhere you need to go in the vicinity within twenty minutes. The house is located only a little over an hour away from Denver.
