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. 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 memory foam 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!

• Large, downstairs laundry room with front loading washer and dryer. Ironing board, iron, folding table, drying racks, and laundry detergent provided.

*** Allergy Friendly

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!

Home away indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We had truly a blessed time in this little house. It's clean, warm and stylishly furnished. The owners went over and beyond to make us feel like home. They were very helpful and prepared with list of activities, restaurants and hiking trails. Answering all of our questions right away. Definitely staying there, next time we visit Colorado Springs!

Absolutely adorable and CLEAN!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the cleanest and incredibly adorable home we have ever stayed in. From the time we walked in it felt cozy, welcoming and just like home. The location is convenient to all the fun attractions. We even drove to Denver, Winterpark and A Basin to ski. The drive was not bad at all. Sarah was a complete doll and amazing. I highly recommend staying here! Thank you for opening your adorable home to our family for Christmas! We will be back.

Homey and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Wildflower. We have nothing but positive feedback. The house is charming, bright, clean and impeccably maintained. Super comfortable beds. We didn't have the opportunity to meet Sarah and Caleb but they went the extra mile to make us feel at home (even chocolate chip cookies awaiting us when we checked in). If our journey takes us to Colorado Springs we would definitely stay at the Wildflower again!

We would be so excited to have you visit again as you become “locals” here in town! Thank you very much!

Colorado Springs in Mid October

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Wildflower Colorado for our 4th wedding anniversary. We traveled from Lincolnton, North Carolina. We stayed October 19-22. I was worried about the weather being too cold, but it was PERFECT.

While here we did: Garden of the Gods (Free), Red Canyon (Free) , Seven Falls ($14/each), Pikes Peak Cog Train ($40/each), Royal Gorge ($23 each), Broadmore, Cheyenne Mountain Park (free), Cave Dwellings ($10/each), drove to Denver- Coors Field, Red Rock Amphitheater (Free), Downtown Colorado Springs- Pioneer Museum (Free), Rasta Pasta...

Rented a car.. well worth it, city is easy to navigate and there is lots to see and do.

The house is beautiful, great location, and Sarah and Caleb make it so easy. I have stayed in plenty of VRBOs and this one rates at the top. Since we had carry ons, it was nice they provided shampoo/conditioner/body wash/etc so you dont have to travel with those items.

We did not spend a lot of time at the house- but the location is great. I would definitely recommend Colorado Springs over Denver if you are looking for hiking/mtn viewing.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Abby, for your comments about the home's fantastic location! We love that is is central to everything, too! I am so happy to hear you made good use of the shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc. that was provided in our home. That's great! WOW! You and your hubby planned everything so well and were able to get to a lot of great sites in Colorado Springs! You truly experienced a lot during your visit and we hope you loved every minute! Way to go! Thank you, again, for choosing our home for your anniversary trip, and please know you are always welcome to return! Blessings to your family! --Sarah and Caleb

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely spotless and in the best location to be near our daughter at CC. The neighborhood was really nice - we walked to 50/50 coffee shop and listened to the neighbor play his guitar and sing on Sunday morning! No question we would stay here again! AND Sarah had made us chocolate chip cookies and put some waters in the fridge for us.

Owner's Response: We loved having you visit! I am so glad that you were only a mile from CC and able to visit your daughter for Parent's Weekend! Our proximity to CC was a big reason we love this home! I hope it was a fun and relaxing weekend. We would absolutely LOVE to have you return anytime! We will always make you a whole bunch of cookies! :) Thank you, S. family!

Charming house, comfortable and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Can't speak highly enough of this location. Charming house in a beautiful neighborhood. The owners have thoughtfully provided everything you could need for relaxing and enjoying Colorado Springs. Completely furnished kitchen for cooking, lots of games and good movies. Beautifully decorated with lots of comfortable furniture. We felt welcomed from the minute we walked into the door, and enjoyed our time here. So conveniently located to downtown and all of the outdoor attractions in the Springs. The owners were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home. There was absolutely nothing lacking in our visit. We would eagerly come back to Wildflower Colorado!

We love that you used the kitchen to cook, enjoyed the neighborhood, watched movies, and most importantly - spent quality time together! We love that you felt welcomed here from the moment you came in the door - what a huge compliment to us! That is our goal! Your hearts have blessed us, and we eagerly await your return! We would love to have you come again. Blessings! -Sarah and Caleb
