About E.J. Fesler

I grew up in this home. I'm retired now and live nearby in the mountains.

E.J. Fesler purchased this bungalow in 1950

Why E.J. Fesler chose Colorado Springs

This vacation rental was my home as a child. Our family has had many gatherings here throughout the years; Thanksgiving, Christmas, family birthdays, etc.

I chose to turn my home into a vacation rental because of the neighborhood and its proximity to the many amenities of the local area.

What makes this bungalow unique

My wife and I have always enjoyed the short distance from old downtown Colorado Springs where you will find restaurants to fit any budget along with museums, bars, libraries, the Fine Art Center, the Pikes Peak Center, Colorado College, a lake, a swimming pool, ice skating, several parks, bike paths, shopping, the National Firefighters Memorial, the United States Olympic Center and art galleries. You will be within 1 hour of a private hot springs and 2 ½ hours from skiing.

The house is 10 minutes away from the famous 5 Star Broadmoor Hotel, 12 minutes away from Manitou Springs, 8 minutes from Old Colorado City, 5 minutes walk from Colorado College, 20 minute walk from Old down town Colorado Springs, 12 minutes from Garden of the Gods, 15 minutes away from the Air Force Academy, One hour away from Cripple Creek, 1 hour away from Denver and 20 minutes from the Colorado Springs Airport. Stay with us for a few days, a week, a month or more. Please make yourself at home!

Quaint, clean, cozy and roomy bungalow in a prime location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our college-aged son spent Thanksgiving in this lovely bungalow allowing us to visit family for the week in a relaxed, spacious setting. The pictures on the website accurately depict this cozy, well-appointed bungalow near downtown Colorado Springs! The home was truly immaculate! The owner provided every amenity including a kitchen well-stocked with appliances and kitchenware making cooking for and entertaining our local family members a breeze. There is even a table leaf in one of the bedroom closets which added two more seats to the beautiful craftsman wood dining table. My family kept exclaiming "I can't believe you can rent a place like this"! Regarding the basement bedrooms, they are clean and nicely decorated and would (in my opinion) be fine for teenagers, however, I didn't see an egress window.

Thanks to other reviewers' comments, we found the Dogtooth Coffee shop (5 blocks east) for a nice bit of morning exercise and a decent cup a coffee as well as the Safeway store (just 7 blocks north on Wahsatch).

The lovely Colorado weather allowed us to grill out salmon filets in the backyard (with a spare tank of propane standing by, thank you, E. J.). Family members hung out on the patio furniture in the fenced and private back yard. The home is so well cared for and the owner so responsive that we felt like we were staying in one of our good friend's homes. No more Marriotts for me. We will definitely stay here again!

Lovely well appointed vintage home!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well appointed home in North Old Town Colorado Springs. There were 3 in our party and we had plenty of space to spread out. Beautiful hardwood floors and updated furnishings complimented the house. The house was centrally located to many of the tourist areas. We enjoyed Garden of the Gods, the Air Force Academy, and wonderful views of Pikes Peak! We had personal business in town and everything we needed was just a short drive away. The house was immaculate! I would definitely stay there again!

Charming, cozy, and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The home was supplied with everything we needed. The furniture was comfortable, and stylish. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could possibly need.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home, situated in a great community.

Cozy, craftsman bungalow in the heart of downtown Co Springs was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fantastic find in Old Historic North end Colorado Springs. Lots of space in the main living area, wide screen tv and even movie channels which pleased the hubby! This home was immaculate, boasting a renovated kitchen equipped with all the amenities of home (Keurig on counter but if you desire a regular coffee maker it's in the breakfast nook pantry). Pleased to have a few coffees to cover us until we could get to the store. Downstairs is a quaint basement with two rooms and two twin beds in each. Also a nice laundry room with front load washer and dryer. Two full bathrooms, one up and one down, while the one down is a shower unit the upstairs is a tub bath/shower unit. Lots of great lighting in the bathroom which was a pleasant surprise. Plenty of closet and storage space including dressers in the bedrooms. I loved the original lighting and hardware on the doors. Even the front door appeared be original to the home, such character! The rear courtyard was adorable, with pavers and seating for both conversation and dining. They even supply a grill for the nice Colorado evenings. There was an iron fence around most of the yard and a wooden privacy fence around back, all of which are padlocked giving a sense of security. The owner was a pleasure to work with and promptly refunded our security deposit after vacating. You're as close as you can be to downtown Co Springs. It's an excellent home base for day excurions in and near C.S. DO eat at the Garden of the Gods Cafe - you will love it! Don't miss Seven Falls, Pikes Peak, USAFA and Olympic Training Center! Don't hesitate to book this home, it was a pleasure (comfy beds and pillows too!). I truly wanted to bring the house back to South Carolina with me! Thank you for sharing your home!

Great stay in sunny Colorado Springs

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and one friend rented this home in a beautiful, older established, section of Colorado Springs. The home, a modern arts and crafts theme, was well furnished, very clean, and very conveniently located. It was easy and efficient to communicate with the owner. He was also very flexible as our dates changed once or twice leading up to our stay. Although we did not use the grill and patio, it would be a nice way to spend an evening at home. We did enjoy sitting out on the front porch in the morning. We are already re-booking this house for the next time we go to Colorado Springs.

Fine, not great.

  • 2 of 5

The downstairs extra bedrooms are barely bedrooms, more of a converted basement - same goes for the bathroom down there. Upstairs is fine, but I wouldn't expect any adult or little kids to stay downstairs.

Owner's Response: {For those of you reading reviews before booking, please look at our other reviews.} I believe this guest wrote a poor review in retaliation for getting an extra cleaning charge because the home was left extra dirty.

Located in The Historic Old North End of Colorado Springs just north of Colorado College.

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.
