About Clara Paulson
I grew up and went to college in North Dakota. Later I married and moved to Montana where I lived for 24 years where I raised three children. I have always loved the mountains and after my children were grown, I moved here to beautiful Colorado to start an herb and tea company, here in Old Colorado City. Because I prefer moderate weather with the 4 seasons, this area is very attractive. Being family oriented makes running a vacation rental the perfect fit and just adds layers of new friends to a life full of wonderful people. Enjoy your stay and be sure to let me know any way I can make your trip better. Share your experience here with your friends and do come back- Beginning in June of 2013, you will also have access to an on-grounds Tea Shop for enjoying a cup of tea on our store patio or to purchase items to take back home. A natural gas grill on the private front patio is sure to make your stay fun while people watching during your dinner or relaxing times together.

Why Clara Paulson chose Old Colorado City
Of all the areas in Colorado I have chosen, Old Colorado City where I decided to make my retirement. The people are friendly, and living here in this beautiful area, is like living on vacation all the time. So many pass through here and having a local business has made it possible for me to revisit some of the same people coming through every summer. It is a delightful mix of all walks of life and once experienced, something to be appreciated and certainly remembered.
What makes this Cottage unique
I love living on this busy small town street where activities and excitement of all there is to do, happens right out my front door. I can walk to work, walk to dine, walk to walk, enjoying friends and visitors any day of the week. I can pack a lunch and walk through Garden of the Gods Park- just another benefit of living here. Everyone owns a dog, and that says a lot for the just type of people who walk the neighborhoods here, friendly and happy- Being just a few miles to either downtown or Manitou Springs is an ideal setting for a vacation or living in Colorado Springs. Just out the door, you can visit the Organica Herb & Tea Co, voted "Best of Colorado Springs" in the Independent annual addition.

Comfy Cottage in Colorado City
Absolutely had a wonderful stay here. Extended extra days so ended up staying here for 8 days. Comfortable place for 2 people. Kitchen came in handy as we prepped a few dinners and breakfasts here. We picked this location because it's in Old Colorado City which has a cool vibe and great place to come home to for the night once you get all your day chores out of the way. Really easy to get around town from Old Colorado City (OCC), easy striking distance to Manitou Springs, dowtown Colorado Springs or even the UCCS area should you not be in rush hour traffic. But what really made the place were the hosts Clara & Lucas. Delightful people, engaging, and helpful when you need them. They also have a store that sells teas, spices and supplements to take care of your body too. Clean and comfortable place to hang out in. Thank you Clara & Lucas
Adorable place close to downtown with a great host
My girlfriend and I were going to be in Colorado Springs for a wedding so I booked a few nights here. It's very cozy and within walking distance to Old Town so you can eat and shop with no trouble, and most of the great hikes and sights are a very short drive away. Clara was a great host that made sure we had everything we needed before even we knew we needed it. As a bonus, if you love tea there is a huge selection at Organica in the same backyard!
The guest house has everything you need with storage, a small kitchen, a jacuzzi bath, and plenty of room. We really enjoyed our stay!
Clare our host was very welcoming. A great place to stay away from home. Loved it so much!
Property was well maintained and secure lighting at night. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy. A nice get a way. Our hostess, Clare, was so very welcoming. Will definitely look into this cottage again on future trips to the city.
Great place in a great location
I stayed here for 2 months and it was perfect. It had everything I need, it was clean, and in walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. Many attractions such as Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs and great hikes were a short drive away. Clara and Lucas were very responsive to any questions and always had great recommendations. I would definitely stay again!
Special Guest House and Hosts
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this sweet guest house and loved being in walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Clara and Lucas made us feel very welcome! It was a special time for us.
Because you are centrally located, any of these are available nearby. This house is about 1 1/2 blocks off of the main shopping and dining for Old Colorado City. The location is between Manitou Springs and downtown, so it is ideal for visitors
