About Sue Gray
Richard and Allan moved to Colorado Springs from Austin, Texas in 2003 to enjoy retirement and everything Colorado has to offer. We built our home and gardens in the Victorian Style to fit the neighborhood. Allan retired from the telecommunications industry and Richard retired from the interior design industry. We share the interests of gardening, and love to travel. We have been to many countries around the world. Our favorite way to travel is staying in Self Catering Houses. We look forward to giving you the same wonderful experience in our cottage, that we have enjoyed during our travels.
Sue Gray purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Sue Gray chose Old Colorado City
This completely renovated Cottage was built in 1898. It is adjacent to our home which was built in 2009. This neighborhood is part of the historic district of Old Colorado City. We choose to build our Victorian style home here because we think it is the friendliest neighborhood in the city. Don't be alarmed if people stop and talk with you as they are on their morning or afternoon walk through the neighborhood. We also enjoy that the area is very eclectic with character that many other parts of town are lacking. The location is very central in the city. We are slightly on the west side of town which gives easy access to the tourist friendly city of Manitou and the mountains beyond. Oh, and the best part of living in this great city is the magnificent views of 'America's Mountain', Pikes Peak. I never get tired of this ever changing scenery. Richard is a native of Colorado. He spent his professional years in Austin, Texas. Retired now, the choice to move back to Colorado was an easy one as the weather is simply the best. The winters beautiful with many sunny days and the summer days are warm with cooling evenings and nights. Just perfect! Colorado Springs has the amenities of a large city, but still the feel of a small town. So we welcome you to come and enjoy this city that we love and call home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Tranquility! Comfort! Relaxation! Security! Whether you're in Colorado Springs for business or pleasure you can come home to the cottage knowing you will rest after a long hard day of work or sightseeing. Enjoy a drink on the Island patio with the sound of water flowing while the sun is setting. Enjoy the cool summer evenings in conversation amidst the beauty of the gardens. Come and enjoy what we get to enjoy every day! Oh and the best part is you don't have to do any of the work!

Wonderful week at Tranquil Waters
There's nothing I can add to the other reviewers. Our stay was consistent with everyone else.
It truly is an oasis that is worthy of retreating to all on it's own. Thanks to Richard and Allan for sharing it with us.
Tranquil Waters cottage
This is one of the nicest rental homes we have stayed at. We were greeted by one of the owners, given a little tour, and a dozen fresh eggs, coffee, and wine. The cottage has everything you need and in a beautiful setting. The garden is lovely and they leave fish food on the patio so you can feed the fish every morning. It is in a great location, close to Old Colorado City, Garden of the Gods, and more.
We are thrilled you enjoyed the cottage and grounds. Thanks for feeding the fish for us. We hope if your ever in the area again you'll think of staying at one of our places.
The Tranquil Waters cabin lived up to its name! The cottage is just the right size for a relaxing get away for two. The property's grounds are beyond description and must simply be experienced to be believed. The owners/ hosts reside on the grounds and were very welcoming and accommodating and just a phone call away if needed. This stay has been fantastically rejuvenating!
Tranquil Waters Cottage is just that...
This vacation home is surrounded by an amazing garden that provides you a quiet and private place to relax and just enjoy the breeze flowing through the trees, and the sounds of the running water into ponds. Yes, there are chickens, goats and vegetable gardens on the properties that you should check out. Nestled in Old Colorado City, you are within driving distance of numerous destinations, and a short walk to downtown where there are many shops and great restaurants. This was my first VRBO vacation and I can honestly say, this home convinced me it can be a great option!
Such a peaceful setting
Tranquil Waters had all the amenities needed for my stay and it's delightfully decorated. It's a very peaceful setting and even though on a fairly busy street it's very private and lush with the traffic noise muffled. Richard and Allan are the perfect hosts.
A very special place.
We were greeted with a bottle of wine, coffee, fresh flowers and eggs from “the girls” as well as a tour of the cottage and the property. And it only got better! Richard and Allan have created a beautiful oasis and graciously share it all with their guests. We stayed five days and had everything we could possibly need in the cottage. The bed and furniture were comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped, the towels were luxurious - every need of their guests had been anticipated. The grounds surrounding the cottage were even more beautiful than the pictures indicated. All this within a short distance of the historic area of Old Colorado City with coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques, but a quiet and peaceful oasis once you return and shut the gate behind you. The cottage and grounds are lovely, but the icing on the cake is the friendly hospitality shown by Richard and Allan. They were never intrusive, but seemed to enjoy answering questions and showing us around the property when we asked (the baby goats were too cute!). We will definitely make this our “home away from home” any time we are visiting the area.
This Cottage is located in a residential neighborhood between Historic Old Colorado City and Downtown Colorado Springs. The Cottage is on the grounds of the owner's home and shares a fenced in, well manicured and landscaped yard. Several restaurants are within walking distance and many more a short drive away. Come and enjoy this tranquil cottage and explore the local sites of Colorado Springs. We are here to make your stay enjoyable and assist with information on the local area. Welcome!
