This charming condominium is just steps out you door from restaurants and shopping. We are located in the heart of the Manitou Historic District. You will have off street parking. Manitou has been a vacation destination since the late 1800's and gives you a one of a kind out west experience.
Our condo offers a beautiful updated full kitchen with granite countertops and all the amenities. The upstairs showcases beautiful refinished hardwood floors, pillow top queen bed in the master bedroom, and a charming newly updated bathroom. The decor is a lovely southwestern and Spanish motif to complete your out west vacation experience. The second bedroom offers a charming trundle bed, the sofa in the living room accommodates a queen sized bed. You also have a small family room upstairs, so if you have children, you both can have a TV for your entertainment.
We are just minutes from the Garden of the Gods, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, The Cave of the Winds, The Pikes Peak Cog Train, Santa's North Pole, Old Colorado City, downtown Colorado Springs and the Air Force Academy. There are so many more attractions and amenities to experience in our area.

My husband Mike and I, (Linda), bought our business in the heart of downtown Manitou nearly 20 years ago. We decided to convert the Condo in the back of our building to a vacation rental this year and have really enjoyed decorating and refurbishing it. We have decorated it in a southwestern and Mexican motif as we have the same style in our own home. We have enjoyed trips to Mexico and the southwest and want to give our guests a similar warm atmosphere. Come see us, we look forward to meeting you.
We require a 2 night minimum off season Sept. 15- May 1st. On season we require a 3 night minimum May 2-September 14th. We require a $100.00 cleaning fee which is refunded after property has been vacated and no damage has been found.
My husband and I stayed at Reed's Retreat for an extended weekend, and this condo completely made our trip. Staying in the heart of Manitou was fun and convenient -- particularly the included parking spot! Everything about the condo was great: full kitchen (we mainly just used the fridge, but having the option to cook is great!), new carpet downstairs, two TVs, comfy beds, nice bathroom. We visited a ton of breweries in the area, the zoo and Santa's Workshop, and we wandered around town for ice cream and dinner. Our stay was so nice that we discussed making this a regular trip, and booking Reed's Retreat as our home base. The only drawback was the bar across the street playing loud music until fairly late (after 11 pm) -- not a big deal, and we were able to sleep just fine regardless. We'll be back!
Linda made our trip so easy! All we had to do was show up and her smile set the deal. What a great little location just at the end of the street. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the local fare and scenery as we spent time in the area for a family wedding weekend. There wasn't a thing more we could have asked for!
Thanks, Linda! We'll be looking you up when we are back in the area!
Didn't spend to much time in the rental. It was nice and comfortable. Felt more cozy upstairs as at night anyone can look through the door window. Kitchen had everything I needed.
Bed upstairs was very comfortable. The only negative I would have to say is that it needs a better cleaning. Cobwebs in the kitchen ceiling. Bathroom vent in the ceiling looks like its never been cleaned which made it feel dirty. I would stay there again. Owner very nice.
Linda's place was a little tight for 3 adults and 3 children, but otherwise was great; clean and had everything we needed. Walking distance to the shops and Arcade in Manitou Springs, and less than 15 min drive to the other attractions we enjoyed (Cave of the Winds, Cliff Dwellings, the Cog train to Pikes Peak, etc.). Thanks Linda
Linda's condo was a great surprise! The location was perfect - minutes from the Cog train up Pike's Peak, the Incline, Garden of the Gods, the Penny Arcade, and more. There is a park and playground with a gorgeous creek running through it right across the street, which is perfect for families with young kids. There's another awesome park a short walk away as you wander through downtown. And for those who are playing Pokemon Go! there are two Pokestops accessible from within the condo as well as tons of stops and a few gyms within walking distance as you explore downtown. Parking was a breeze since it's literally right outside the door of the condo, and therefore right on the main drag of downtown Manitou. The nearest Safeway is about 5-10 minutes down the road and took care of all of our meal needs for the week. The trundle bed in the second bedroom was great for our two young kids and the queen size bed was great for my 6' 2" hubby and me. All in all, it was a great experience. Everything was clean and customer service was fantastic. We'll be back!
The apartment was nice, roomy, and well stocked for our needs. However, there are a couple of drawbacks. We didn't realize that is is connected to and directly behind the Reeds' business. So when we arrived we had to park behind the owners' two vehicles. Fortunately for us our going and coming worked out well or we would have been shuffling cars. You cannot park on the street, because it is all paid parking.
The other drawback is that the drive is extremely narrow and you have to back up to load and unload because there is a wood fence partially separating the apartment drive from the neighboring businesses drive. On the other side of the fence is the dumpsters for that business. So at 10:30 to 11:00 PM someone is dumping glass bottles and trash. The recycling/trash company comes at about 6:30 AM. There was also a loud machine noise all night one night. So if you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you.
On the other hand, it is fun to be able to walk from the apartment to the lovely downtown shops and restaurants. The furniture was nice and the bed was comfortable. The owners are very pleasant and their shop has really nice jewelry!
