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 sixteen years now and is an electrical engineer.
Catherine purchased this House in 2012
Why Catherine chose East Colorado Springs
My husband and I travel as often as possible with our three kids. 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! I felt like it was a dream come true to find a house that still had many of the classic, early 1900's details, including original woodwork. The heating system pulley (in the kind bedroom) and original wiring for the phone lines are so cool!

Quiet Neighborhood, adorable house, convenient location
This house was perfect for us! Our family of 4 (kids aged 10 and 7), plus my dad, used the convenient location to visit Garden of the Gods and family nearby. Compared to all of us crammed into 2 hotel rooms, renting this house was so much better! We used the space to spread out (my dad took the cozy front room, and had a little separation from our kids in the back room). We also played games and used the cozy kitchen. Wifi worked great.
I would highly recommend this house, and will probably stay here again next time we're in town
Great location and dog friendly
My husband and I and our 2 dogs enjoyed staying here and agreed it was much better than a hotel. The house is comfortable and the owner is very responsive. It has a full size fridge and kitchen which we utilized during our short stay. The location is great. It's close to Garden of the Gods and several dog friendly breweries. The home is older and quaint with lots of character.
Very Comfortable Stay
We really enjoyed the bungalow. It was clean, quiet and had everything we needed, including A/C and we could have our dogs with us! Catherine was super responsive and accommodating. We are relocating to Colorado Springs but if we need extra space for family when they visit, we will definitely use this property again.
Lovely character home
Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids) enjoyed the spaciousness of this home - everybody was able to claim a room/bed of their own! It was well outfitted and in a convenient location. The home owner was responsive and easy to communicate with. Great stay!
Thanks for taking such great care of our home, Kim! We'd love to welcome you and your family to stay again the next time you're in the area.
Nice and cozy home. Everything we needed for our family.
We loved the location to manitou springs. Quiet nice neighborhood
Just what we needed for the PPIH.
Great little spot to stay.
Thanks, Matthew! Hope the use of the garage worked out for you.
