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".

Perfect little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great first stay in Colorado Springs with our one year old. The cottage was just the right amount of space and had everything we needed, including toys, games, and a booster seat for the table! The location was great, and Nancy was very responsive and helpful. Thanks again!

Cute Cottage

  • 2 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time in Colorado Springs. There are so many wonderful things to do in the area, we didn't spend much time at the cottage. Upon arrival we noticed fleas on the rug and surrounding area in the bathroom. We then vacuumed and washed the rug. The owners thanked me for letting them know about this issue. The overall cleanliness isn't what I would have expected. The cottage was tidy with all things neatly placed on shelves, but there was a slight film on the floor. We had chosen this cottage, in part, for it's pet-friendly policy, though our pup is no longer with us and we could have stayed anywhere. The cottage, while small, did serve our family of six while we were visiting the area. However, the housekeeping should pay a bit more attention between houseguests.

Owner's Response: Hi Ashley, thank you for your feedback. We did note there were a few small bugs in the bathroom and remedied the issue immediately. As you can see from our reviews, we take cleanliness very seriously. I’m glad you, your husband and your 4 small boys found our cottage a good place for your stay. Best regards, Nancy

Absolute Dream!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was an absolute dream! I chose the cottage because of its floor to ceiling windows that let in great light. The décor was very comfortable and current. The open setup is great for socializing. The kitchen and laundry were very convenient. The beds and seating are comfortable. The patio was nice to enjoy the warm weather and the location is very convenient and quiet. The drive up to the cottage was of the expansive mountains in the distance. I would absolutely recommend this cottage and we hope to return soon.
