Why Nancy and Ryan Soderstrom chose Colorado Springs

This house reminds us of a by-gone era when life was slower and people sat on the front patio 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 cottage unique

This house is central to all the attractions and amenities Colorado Springs has to offer. And yet, it is a peaceful getaway.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What can we say other than simply the best! Gorgeous apartment that is every bit as luxurious as the photos and descriptions suggest, combined with amazing attention to the little details, and 5 star service. We've traveled all over the world and i'd choose Nancy and Ryans places over some of the best hotels, no question. 5 stars all the way!

Sweet and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is warm and inviting from the moment you come in. Charming wood floors and beautiful Scandinavian decor. It was impeccably clean, and every need was anticipated. The kitchen is generously stocked with everything you need to prepare meals, and we were even gifted with a pancake mix that made the next day's breakfast plans nice and easy. We took walks around the neighborhood when we weren't doing the touristy things in the area, and there is a park directly across the street! This cottage was the perfect home base for all of our adventures, and it took no time at all to get from here to the Cliff Dwellings, Garden of the Gods, and Pikes Peak. We were delighted to see the Olympic training facility on our street and walked all around it, taking photos and imagining who was in there. We had a beautiful time and would definitely stay at one of Nancy and Ryan's properties again. They are perfect hosts.

Adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was just perfect for what we were wanting! Very clean and quaint! The owners were very sweet and left coffee and snacks for us. It seemed to be in a good location for everything we wanted to do. Wasn't more than 15 minutes from anything! We loved it, and would highly recommend Aspen Leaf Cottages!

We had such a blast! The cottage was a perfect home away from home for our vacation. We had all we needed and the Walmart was conveniently close. It is located by so many tourist attractions. Loved it!

Great Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to get away and relax with my dog!! The duplex was clean, very well stocked, all of the upgrades were top quality. The kitchen was fully stocked to prepare meals and there is a full size refrigerator. The surrounding area was a great place to walk my dog and enjoy the historic flair of the area. I was there for 3 weeks for work/vacation combined and was very comfortable. The only thing that I can say was a bit of a challenge was finding a decent place to do laundry that was convenient. Overall, this was a wonderful place. Nancy was very responsive to all needs. TY for letting me stay for awhile!! :) Marina Dooley
