Welcome to the “Wildflower Colorado” Vacation Rental!

'The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.' Numbers 6:24-26

Make yourself comfortable in this extraordinary historic bungalow, just under 1,500 square feet, and perfectly located in the central part of Colorado Springs!

This eye catching, quiet, and very safe neighborhood is ideal for a truly perfect vacation in Colorado Springs. Our desire is for our guests to feel exclusively considered before their arrival. Therefore, we don’t cut corners! The “Wildflower Colorado” Vacation Home is perfectly outfitted with luxury furnishings and centrally located.

We have lived here our whole lives, so we know about secret hiking trails and the best places to eat in town!

Our family also owns and operates two other VRBO properties entitled “Oakwood Colorado,” (please see listing #972088,) and “Colorful Colorado” (#455571). Please read our outstanding reviews!

Adorned with natural elements, this home features the inspiring colors of the majestic Colorado mountain region. Colorado’s native wildflowers and outdoor beauty have been attractively brought indoors. You’ll love the original hardwood floors, French doors, heated tile floor in the bathroom, enormous windows for letting in Colorado sunbeams, and the newly remodeled, fully stocked kitchen (complete with stainless steel appliances). The home is fully Air-Conditioned. The open-concept living room flows effortlessly into the dining room for entertaining. Enjoy free High Speed Wi-Fi, the comfortable couch, new queen beds featuring high-quality hypoallergenic mattresses, new bed linens and coverings from Pottery Barn, new large stainless steel kitchen appliances and small appliances, and artwork painted by the owner!

The home is a just around the corner from fantastic downtown coffee shops, restaurants, and minutes from walking paths, hiking trails, and gorgeous mountain views! Centrally located to everything Colorado Springs has to offer! Wildflower Colorado is within walking distance to the Olympic Training Center. And it is just 5 minutes from two golf courses; a 5 minute drive to Colorado College and downtown Colorado Springs. Pikes Peak, Cog Railway, Garden of the Gods and Manitou Springs are a short 12-15 minute drive. Additionally, you will be only 14 minutes to the Air Force Academy, Peterson Air Force Base and Fort Carson. 19 minutes from the Colorado Springs Airport. 20 minutes to The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

• Fully Air Conditioned

• Sleeps up to 5 people (2 people in the Mount Columbine bedroom, 2 people in the Indian Paintbrush Bedroom and 1 in the Snow-On-The-Mountain room's pullout twin sofa sleeper)

• 1 Bathroom - privately and perfectly centered between the bedrooms. Step into the glass and Travertine tiled spa shower. The glass shower contains a tiled bench and is surrounded by heated Travertine flooring. The new granite raised vanity is sparkling clean! The luxurious new plush towels will leave you feeling like royalty. Vintage glass doorknobs & skeleton keys in each door! So unique!

No smoking inside the home or outside on the property. We require a clean air environment, and we would prefer that smokers do not stay here.

Please, no pets. Please, do not burn candles or incense while in our home.

*** Our clean team is the best!

Our housekeeping and landscaping team work hard, and do not cut corners. You will arrive to a home that is sparkling clean, well-organized, and ready for you to enjoy. Our clean team is all in the family, and we enjoy working on the property together.

Just a few of the things we provide in our rentals that no other rentals do:

1. New towels every 6 months.

2. New bed linens every 6 months.

3. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, cotton balls, q-tips, hand lotion, Kleenex, body lotion, make-up remover wipes, a hairdryer, and toilet paper. (Believe it or not, most rentals don't provide toilet paper. They request you bring your own!)

4. We supply paper towels, dish soap and laundry detergent, and basic kitchen spices.

5. A clean team that is within the family. We take pride in our rentals, because they are our homes. We ensure that each rental is cleaned thoroughly and "little touches" of hospitality are felt by each guest.

6. We really care that you have a wonderful experience. Many other rentals are offered only for Air Force Academy events or certain weeks a year, and the owner has very little experience in maintaining a quality VRBO. We have 5 years of expertise in running a VRBO, and to ensure our guests have the greatest stay in Colorado Springs possible!

Check in as early as 4PM, and check out as late as 10AM.

About Caleb-Sarah Reeder

About the owner: Successfully running Vacation Rental Homes within Colorado Springs is what my family does best! My husband and I are a newly married couple who love our state and everything the Front Range of Colorado has to offer. As a native, I loved Colorado Springs so dearly, that I decided to even stay here for college and attended the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. What drew my husband to this area was mainly his calling to be a Firefighter for the Colorado Springs Fire Department. We live in town, and can offer many suggestions on where to eat, play, and have fun as a family! We believe that when a home is well-loved and cared for, it shows great stewardship for the Lord, His resources, and His abundant provision. We sincerely cannot wait for your arrival!

Caleb-Sarah Reeder purchased this house in 2016

Why Caleb-Sarah Reeder chose East Colorado Springs

The Wildflower Colorado home was built in the Shooks Run neighborhood in 1923. With wide streets, mature trees, large green lawns, long driveways, and craftsman style homes. It has all the definitive features and simplicity of the era, but is centrally located to all of the fun!

What makes this house unique

See more! Do more! Make the most of your vacation without wasting time driving long distances to all corners of the city. Our fantastically located home, allows you and your family easy access to Downtown, Rock Island Trail, Shooks Run walking/biking trails, Colorado College, and the Olympic Training Center and the Air Force Academy. Within minutes you can be practicing your golf swing at the historic Patty Jewett golf course, taking a scenic hike at Palmer Park, or heading to Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain, or soaking in the beauty of the Garden of the Gods!

Feel like taking it easy? Stay in, soak in the natural sunlight, and watch a movie while relaxing on our plush couch. We have many guests tell us how much they enjoy the natural and peaceful Colorado feel our VRBO offers! Several rare birds and squirrels visit our property daily. Pick wildflowers from our backyard, read a book on the porch swing on the substantial covered front porch – pure peacefulness in the heart of the city. Apart from convenience, a quiet neighborhood, and an open floor plan that provides easy family fun; our home is priced to be family friendly while providing all of the luxuries you would expect at nicer hotels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sarah and Caleb,

What a blessing to have found both of you and your absolutely darling some! We enjoyed every minute we were here, and your home added such an element of comfort and coziness to our vacation! From the beautiful flowers to the well stocked kitchen (we had so much fun cooking in it), there isn't a detail that was overlooked! You two are amazing hosts! Thank you!

Over and Above: Home and Ammenities!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great experience on our visit to Colorado Springs from Austin.

Sarah was such an amazing and generous host and her home we found on Homeaway.

Most importantly, we felt like we were "home" with all the comfort features we had.

The house was beautifully landscaped and the interior decor was spot on, but still had the warm inviting feel that we hoped to have from the pictures online. The freshly baked cookies that awaited us upon our arrival along with the sweet, personalized note and all the information on accessing wifi and channel surfing was "above and beyond" to appreciate. The 2 bedroom home came with a beautiful kitchen filled with all the cooking ware needed and then some. The garage parking access and the best part of our stay was being able to bbq and enjoy our last evening sitting outside on the patio furniture with the cool evening air. I would not only recommend this home but it will be my first choice on our next trip to Colorado.

Thanks Sarah for making our stay feel like we were...HOME! -Eddie

A lovely and very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We much enjoyed our ten days staying at Wildflower Cottage and would certainly be quick to return there if we come to Colorado Springs again. We chose it because it looked very comfortable, and were not disappointed. (Our party included an elderly couple for whom comfort was more important than strenuous outside activities.) The home was very well equipped, and everything worked well. The owners were very friendly and quick to provide us with any additional thing which we requested. They were clearly committed to making our stay a happy and memorable one. The gay flowers in the window-boxes outside the house were delightful.

Owner's Response: There are no words to express how much your family has meant to us. We truly believe that the Lord used your family to bless us greatly! We are the ones that should be thanking you (and we do thank you)! Your kindness and words nearly bring me to tears. Thank you for choosing our home, and know that we will always be ready to host your wonderful family, again! Blessings upon blessings! Thank you, Bendor-Samuel Family! We pray God's richest blessings to you all in Texas! With very grateful hearts, Sarah and Caleb

Perfect for my family of Four

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved everything about this property. The location was superb. The house and amenities were beyond what I ever expected in a vrbo rental. We grilled, Rode bikes and hung out on the patio and porch DAILY. The neighborhood is precious. Safety is important as well and there were no concerns at all. Felt like I was staying at my best friends house, like I should have left a gift or something. I just can’t say thank you enough, this house made our week even better. There is No doubt, we will be back!!

Thank you, B. Family for choosing our home. It was like having dear, dear friends come to visit and we cannot wait to have you back! Thank you & God bless! Love, Sarah and Caleb :)

Charming, well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including our 14 y/o son and 12 y/o daughter, enjoyed this cozy, well appointed home that was well maintained and decorated very nicely. We enjoyed the BBQ on the patio and our morning coffee on the front porch rocking chairs. The location of the home is very convenient to nearby attractions and restaurants. We enjoyed having access to a jogging path not far from the property as well. Sarah & Caleb have done a very good job making this home feel like yours, including the personalized welcome with homemade cookies. We definitely would like to come back here again if we are staying the CO Springs area.

We would jump at the chance to ever have you back! I am so happy to hear you went jogging, got the chance to grill out back, and enjoyed the rocking chairs. (They are my favorite!) Thank you, again, for your kindness and for choosing our home. You are always welcome here!

Everything you need with a touch of home!

  • 5 of 5

Sarah and Caleb provided such a welcoming atmosphere (including homemade cookies) and all the amenities you could ask for. It was a convenient location and we enjoyed hiking, the Incline, Old Colorado, the Air Force Academy, shopping in Manitou, and a culminating dinner at Jake & Telly’s Greek Taverna.
