About the property

Charming 3 BR 2 BA home in quiet neighborhood - wrap-around porch; sleeps 8

Located in the heart of historic, downtown Colorado Springs, this 3 bedroom 2 bath 1908 Victorian home is in a quiet neighborhood. The charm of this home-away-from-home will welcome you right away – starting with the wrap-around front porch! A welcome basket with snacks, coffee, and tea will be waiting for your arrival.

****This house is next to a separate guest cottage that sleeps 4 (listing 3762961) - each with it's own parking, entrance, and private patio. Inquire about a discount if you book both units for the same dates!****

The living room and dining room of this Victorian home have been decorated in a comfortable “Pottery Barn” style. It’s the perfect place to relax after a day of enjoying Colorado Springs. We also have an indoor 3-season porch for reading and relaxing.

The main floor bedroom has a comfortable, new queen size bed and adjacent bath.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want. We also have a pantry filled with cooking and baking basics, so you don’t have to buy something like a whole jar of spices or oil to make a wonderful meal. The deck has a charcoal grill and ample seating for your group. Don’t feel like cooking? Our guest resource book is filled with menus from local restaurants.

The upstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed, arm chair, and desk. Additionally, you’ll find a TV, private bath and walk-in closet. It’s a beautiful retreat.

Downstairs has sleeping arrangements for 4, along with a TV and “Kids Kubby” play area. And, there is a back porch laundry room with washer and dryer.

Downtown Colorado Springs is an incredible neighborhood of creative, family-friendly folks! There are numerous corner coffee shops and the nearby downtown area is filled with eclectic restaurants, pubs, galleries and shops.

There is a major bus line 3 blocks from the house. The cottage has its own private and secure parking spot. The Colorado Springs airport is a short, 10 minute drive from the house

About Nancy and Ryan Soderstrom

About Nancy: As an artist, I find great inspiration for my pottery and designs in the beauty surrounding Colorado Springs. I particularly love the Aspens! Colorado Springs is a city filled with friendly, creative people and we love helping guests make the most of their time here. We welcome the opportunity to help you plan your stay. About Ryan: As a former corporate marketing and communications executive, I now enjoy a combination of consulting, writing, and woodworking. In this eclectic season of life, I’m focused on friends and guests. Whether it’s helping a business grow, making woodcraft, or getting to know our guests and friends, I find there’s always a good story to be told.

Why Nancy and Ryan Soderstrom chose East Colorado Springs

This house reminds us of a by-gone era when life was slower and people sat on beautiful porches to sip iced tea. We love the history and charm of this home, and immediately saw the appeal of opening its doors for travelers to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

There is an amazing amount of personality in original wood floors and molding throughout this house. We find it to be a peaceful and relaxing place to be.

Guestbook comments from the manager

On a rainy evening, this was such a cozy, homey place to be! I loved having coffee on the side porch, and sitting on the front porch. Even the neighbors are welcoming! I loved it here! Reminded me of being at my Grandma's house.

Incredibly Cute - Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This was out first time using a service like vrbo. We have always stayed in hotels. I am so glad we went this route. The house was very cute, everything was impeccably clean and neat. Nancy, our host was very helpful. We would definitely stay at this property again when we come back to the Springs.

Good place to stay with a few minor problems

  • 4 of 5

We would stay here again because the owner was great with communication and clean house.

Here are the 3 things that you should know about:

1) there is no TV whatsoever, just the antenna version

2) couch was a little tired to sit on

3) stairs are steep and if you have older people with you (which we did), there is only one bedroom on the ground floor and 3 people cannot share one king bed.

Owner's Response: Hi Roger, Thanks for your comments. As a note for our future travelers, there are 3 "SmartTV" televisions in this house, each equipped with a paid Netflix account, as well as other internet options. There is, as noted, antenna TV with numerous local channels. The furniture in the house is brand new, with a new remodel having been completed in January of 2017. And yes, our house is 100+ years old and the stairs to the upper level bedroom are a little steep. Best Regards, Nancy

Plenty of charm and comfort in this beautifully restored Victorian home!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many cozy spots to share time with friends and family in this spacious home...front porch, side porch and living room. The beds and furniture are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you could possibly want to cook & serve food and the owners make you feel like pampered guests by providing goodies upon your arrival and responding very quickly to any questions you have for them. I would highly recommend this property. There is only one caveat, if you are a TV watcher be aware that the there are limited channels available through Directv, but this is offset by Netflix and other smart TV options. If you're thinking this property is too good of a value for the price, you're right...go ahead and book it!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! Clean, comfortable, quiet neighborhood, and great communication with owners. The decor is charming and we were quite at home. It was so relaxing to return to this lovely home at the end of our busy day and prepare a meal. We will definitely return the next time we are in Colorado Springs!
