Great mid-century home with tons of amenities! Private access to your suite with living room, kitchenette and private bathroom. Located in a safe and desirable neighborhood, Old Colorado City! Ten minutes from Downtown Colorado Springs to the east and Manitou Springs to the west. Explore all that Colorado has to offer with quick access to biking & hiking trails, local restaurants, and great coffee shops.

We love to travel and meet new people, and invite you to stay with us. We welcome everyone!

The space
A great mid-50s home with many original features and details still intact. From the pine paneling in the living room to the aspen-tree themed floor tiles and funky built-ins in the bedroom, we wanted to keep as much originality in place as possible in your space.

We have a great yard that is fully available for your enjoyment, with flower beds, a great covered patio out, and a vegetable garden, too.

We love it, and we hope you will, too!

Guest access
As our guest you'll have full use of the private suite, which is wholly separate from our living area with a private entrance. Your suite includes a living room, dining area, kitchenette, and bathroom. If you are staying long-term (longer than a week) we will occasionally be downstairs to use laundry, but otherwise it's all yours and totally private. While there is not a separate heating/cooling system for your suite, there are space heaters if you are from a warmer climate and need to feel more at home. In the summer the suite stays nice and cool!

We have locked, enclosed storage for your bicycles if you brought them along, and if not we have a couple of bicycles that can be borrowed for getting around the neighborhood.

Other things to note
Please do not have extra unlisted guests in the space with you, as this is unfortunately a liability for us. Also note that the space is not child friendly. We appreciate your understanding!

Location

Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States

One of the oldest and quaintest neighborhoods in Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City is a quirky collection of pristine Victorians, Mid-Century homes, and new builds. All of it works together to make a colorful, eclectic mix that is perfect for evening walks down to a variety of shops and restaurants.

Located just 3 blocks from our home are a large supermarket, hardware store, drug store, and our favorite thrift store. A locally-owned health food store is 2 blocks from our home as well.

Old Colorado City is situated perfectly between downtown Colorado Springs and historic Manitou Springs. We are 10 minutes from Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks Park and Cheyenne Canyon. You can start the breathtaking drive up Pikes Peak Highway a mere 20 minutes from our home.

The CS Fine Arts Center, Pioneer Museum, Colorado College, and more shopping and dining are just minutes away in downtown Colorado Springs.

Hmm, how best to have this not sound like a personal ad... We like to find the spots in any place we travel that give a good sense of the local vibe, not so much the top five tourist attractions. We prefer to keep things simple by using public transportation if it is available and has good coverage of the area. We're not so much into frenetic or high-energy scenes, more of a laid back and take it all in kind of experience. Great food, coffee, craft beer, bicycling/walking/hiking, local art, finding the unexpected and being spontaneous are more important to us than where the best shopping can be found, who's playing at the arena, and where some random celebrity was last seen.
