Why Nancy and Ryan Soderstrom chose East Colorado Springs

We love historical homes and family-oriented neighborhoods. The downtown area of Colorado Springs has both! We love how eclectic and unique each of the homes are, and you're sure to meet friendly folks out on a walk or sitting on their porch. It's a great place to spend time!

What makes this house unique

This cottage is such a peaceful place! The comfortable furnishings and monochromatic decor create a place that will be a wonderful retreat after your day's adventures in Colorado Springs.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Talk about CUTE!!! We loved the vibe of this place. Although we were not in town for fun this location and the interior helped us remember the nice things in life. SUPER clean which is alway a must. Even though it shares a wall with the other cottage we could not hear them. Central location and right across from a park not that you need it considering the size of the fenced in front yard. Very convenient parking right out back. If you would like to relax and enjoy the beauty of Colorado Spring this is the place to stay. The heating system was excellent. Our hosts were very nice and made sure by phone that we got in ok and were prepared to answer any questions we had. We hope to be back again.

Wonderful experience and a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly as described on VRBO and we had a wonderful 4 nights stay with no problems. It was within 1 mile of old downtown where there were a lot of great restaurants, pubs and stores. Getting around was very easy and parking downtown was not a problem during the week when we stayed.

highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was nicely decorated, had everything we needed,was so clean, and it was great having a park directly across the street. This was the 1st time we had stayed in a place like this, and it was great! Owners checked in with us to see if everything was ok. I would highly recommend this place to any couple or family of 4 to stay here. It was absolutely perfect!

It's all in the details!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful cottage for the value! It is very recently updated with all the comforts of home. Bed was very comfortable and the owners add many small details and items you may not have brought from home! Condiments, coffee, kitchen staples and picnic ware just to name a few! The fenced front yard area and park right across the road were so nice for our dogs and son. We also enjoyed the paid Netflix account that came with our stay!

My husband, son, pups and I were very comfortable here and would definitely stay again if we are in the area!

Great place and great location

  • 5 of 5

This has just the right amount of space for our family of four. My daughters are teenagers, and the sofa pull out provided enough room for them both. The queen bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable. When the bed was pulled out, there wasn't a lot of sitting space, but then again we were mostly out and about anyway. The second best part is that we were within a 20 minute drive of Pike's Peak (cog railway) and Garden of the Gods. Old Colorado City was 15 minutes, and the Olympic Training Center was literally down the block (which was our favorite.) Quiet area with a park across the street, yet just down Boulder was also food, gas, and a Walgreens. You can't go wrong with staying here.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay the Euro-Style Cottage. It was clean, felt extremely homey, and was stocked with everything we needed (and more!). The hosts did a great job of checking in to make sure our needs were met and things were going well. We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat!
