Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Lots of small amenities that made the stay perfect. The location is very central and in a beautiful neighborhood. The house was very clean and set up with everything you need. I will be staying here again when I come back to Colorado Springs

Clean, comfortable, well maintained house in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This house is as described. The main level has two well furnished bedrooms with comfortable queen size beds, a great sitting area/living room, bathroom with tub/shower and well equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area. The main bedroom has a great study adjacent with a desk and sitting area. The house is craftsman style with great light. The basement is finished, but is more of a "ski lodge" type feel - not the same standard as the main level. There is one enclosed bedroom in the basement with two single beds and two more single beds in an open area. There is a full bathroom downstairs. Basement is great for kids/overflow but has the central heating, water heater, ducts etc, much less light and as stated not the same finish as main level. The house is in a great, historic neighborhood on a quiet street. It is a few blocks away from the Fine Arts Center and Colorado College which has a beautiful campus and about a 15-20 minute pleasant walk to downtown with shops, restaurants and a movie theater. Overall, a clean, well maintained property in a great location. Owner is easy to work with and responsive. Would not hesitate to return.

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!

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.

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.
