Lovely, pristine spot to stay.

My husband and I had a really wonderful few days at Grant and Jeanine's adorable home in Colorado Springs. It was beautifully decorated and was so very clean. We'll be back in few weeks and hope to stay there much more often in the future.

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Very clean


Thoroughly appointed

Fully finished basement provided ample space for a family to occasionally spread out

Nice front porch for an evening beverage and some star-gazing

Well-located in an old, upscale neighborhood

Attractive landscaping

Great hosts

We immediately felt at home in this warmly furnished, updated 1920's bungalow. The beds, linens, couches, chairs, outdoor furniture...each comfortable and inviting. Every household need has been anticipated and is within reach -- probably where you'd put it in your own house. We enjoyed the use of the front porch, watching families bike by, and the back patio, which provided privacy.

A great home, with ideal hosts,

I recommend it highly and will return.

Gorgeous Craftsman home, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend stay in this comfortable bungalow. The living room, dining room, breakfast nook and upstairs bedrooms were all beautifully decorated with reproduction Craftsman furniture - the home is elegant while still being comfortable and inviting.

Our two daughters (a teen and early twentysomething) liked having their own "private suite" (bedroom, family room w tv, and 3/4 bath) in the basement, so they could stay up late after everyone else went to bed upstairs. We all enjoyed the newly-remodeled kitchen, and took advantage of both the large backyard patio with BBQ grill, and the comfy front porch.

The location, just off the Colorado College campus, is a lovely neighborhood of restored older homes, and is a short drive or bike ride away from downtown Colorado Springs.

We were all sorry to have to head home after only two days. Our next trip through Colorado Springs, we will definitely structure our time to spend at least an extra day or two, so that we can spend more time together at this excellent vacation spot.

You can walk west to Monument Valley Park and go north or south and get in a short or long, very scenic walk.

There are many very good restaurants in the old down town area. It's located south of the house about a mile and a half. You can walk or bike. If driving there is plenty of parking throughout the downtown area.
