Why Nancy and Ryan Soderstrom chose Colorado Springs

We love historical homes and family-oriented neighborhoods. The downtown area of Colorado Springs has both! We love how eclectic and unique each of the homes are, and you're sure to meet friendly folks out on a walk or sitting on their porch. It's a great place to spend time!

What makes this cottage unique

The Monument Street cottage has a charm that is undeniable. Across the board, folks who enter the home say, 'Oh wow! This is such a huge and homey place!' We hope that each guest finds the cottage a serene and comfortable place to stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I spoke several times with my son while he was staying at the cottage. He told me that it was a super place and was a key to his transition from Brook Army Medical Center and succesful integration back into his home base there at Ft Carson. He was very please with the cottage and its soothing and relaxing enviornment. The cottage provided not only an outstanding property completely outfitted with what he needed but also provided him with a base that was centrally located with great access to everything from which to attend to his many needs during this critical time. I would like to add that Nancy and Ryan were super attentive to our needs during this stay and went out of their way to accommodate Joe on a very short notice and provided some special attention with no hesitation when a need arose. They are great folks to work with and I sincerely believe that they are simply "very good people".

Great base camp!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to rewind after a day of exploring, this is it. The central location is perfect. Very easy access to major thoroughfares; plus, local charm. It's clean, quiet, well decorated, and surprisingly spacious. This cottage is an example of what makes VRBO so appealing. We'd give it more than 5 stars if we could!

Wonderful property! Perfect for me, my husband, 2.5 year old daughter and two dogs. Clean cottage, attentive owners, and quiet neighborhood. We would definitely use again and recommend this property to others.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly as described, if not better! There was plenty of room for my husband and me, as well as our adult daughter who stayed in the loft. To be honest, we didn't spend a tremendous amount of time in the cottage since we were on the go, but the location, cleanliness, amenities, spaciousness, cable/wi-fi, and kitchen accessories were all above par. Nancy checked in with us a couple times during our week long stay to make sure all was going well and to see if we needed anything (we didn't). I would absolutely rent this space again on another visit to The Springs.

Perfectly cute & cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect spot for exploring Colorado Springs. The view of Pikes Peak from the neighborhood is amazing! And it's conveniently located for getting to pretty much anything. There's a binder full of information about local restaurants and things to do. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for a couple of days.

Modern Rustic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect "home" for my preteen grandchildren and me to use as a base to see the sights of CS. Great location. Aside from the great CS attractions, we took a walk the last evening and discovered a wonderful park one block away with stream and playground equipment, and even a small deli another block away. This home is exceptionally clean and very well equipped for our 4 days. The owners left us some lovely goodies and pancake mix as a welcome gift, that we appreciated! If we ever return to CS, I would definitely stay there.

Quiet and Peaceful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I spent 9 nights at the cottage from 12 -21 September. The cottage is packed with all the things that you need to make your holiday a home away from home right down to a selection of herbs and spices if you want to stay in and cook. Located in a residential area meant that the cottage was quiet and peaceful and it is centrally located for all the tourist spots no more than 15 -20 minutes away. A short walk will also take you into town if you want to stay local. Tejon street has a number of fine eateries, coffee shops and unique stores to spend the day perusing.

Some of the tourist spots to hit are Garden of the Gods and the Visitor Centre (all free), Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Pikes Peak Cog Railway (remember and take something warm when you get to the summit as the temperature will be vastly different), Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Seven Falls, Pueblo Riverwalk and if you are looking to do a bit of shopping check out Chapel Hills Mall.

Nancy could not have been more helpful answering questions for me a the point of booking and staying in contact during my stay ensuring all was OK.

Loved my time in Colorado Springs and look forward a return trip.
