The space
We call our place The Keys because of the piano key bar that divides the full-service kitchen and the billiard room. The billiard room is flanked by two open living rooms, each with its own large screen TV.

With the renovated condo's location on the 2nd floor of a building in the heart of historic Old Colorado City (OCC), you'll also feel like you have The Keys to this quaint "Americana of the Rockies" town, which was the capital of Colorado when it was just a U.S. Territory. OCC is just minutes to the area's most popular attractions--Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon State Park, Manitou Springs, Cave of the Winds, Pike's Peak and more..

Private rooms off the common area have comfy, high-quality queen beds and ample closet storage space for your bags and personal effects.

The South living room is great for the kids, and the room is also outfitted with a vintage gaming console. The West living room has a full, tilt-back couch and a smart TV with Hulu and Netflix.

The cozy, uplifted bathrooms have all the accoutrements you need when traveling light.

Where you’ll be

Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States

Old Colorado City (OCC) is a walking friendly, "mountain urban" locale. The Keys is situated in the heart of downtown OCC, with lots of Western charm, fabulous art galleries, restaurants, tea houses, pubs, speciality shops and attractions. Old Colorado City is generally considered family-oriented and safe. As with any urban area, there is, however. a homeless population. Thefts do happen so please be security conscious, and do not leave valuables in your car.

Galleries: MagicTown (The Michael Garman Gallery), Chavez Art Gallery and the Simpich Puppet Theater Gallery are must-sees.

Restaurants: Garden of the Gods Gourmet (Farm to Table style), Thai Ginger (Thai), Uchenna (Ethiopian), La Baguette (French), Thunder & Buttons, Alchemy (Irish Pub), Pizzeria Rustica (Italian), TAPAteria (Tapas), Jake & Telley's (Greek) and Sherpa's Garden (Nepalese/Tibetan). Coffee and Tea: Jives, Yellow Mountain Tea House (Chinese--try the dumplings), The British Team Room. A Farmer's Market operates on Saturdays across the street and a few blocks East in the park through almost half the year.

The Old Colorado City Library and the U.S. Post Office are each a block or two from The Keys.

Grocery: Safeway is a few blocks West toward Manitou Springs on the South side of Colorado Avenue. Garden of the Gods Gourmet market is a block South of The Keys on the SW corner of Highway 24/Cimarron and 26th Street. Mountain Mama's Natural Grocers and King Soopers are a short drive to the NE of The Keys in the Uintah Gardens area.

Fitness & Natural Adventure: Old Colorado City is the gateway to an enormous natural playground. Hike, run, bicycle or drive to and through Red Rock Canyon and Garden of the Gods, or up or down Pike's Peak! Discover the Barr, Intemann and Ute Pass trail systems in Manitou Springs. Cruise to downtown Colorado Springs and head up and down America the Beautiful Park along Fountain Creek. Explore the extensive trail systems and highways in Cheyenne Canyon and at Seven Falls. Walk the Broadmoor campus and take in the sights. There's so much to do and see. There is a bike rental shop 1 blocks West of The Keys. Also, 2 blocks from The Keys is a company that takes people on bicycling tours up Gold Camp Road and down Pikes Peak.

Art & Theater: Simpich Puppet Theater, Garman/Magic Town, Chavez Gallery, Squash Blossom Gallery, among others.

Health: the West Side, which includes Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs, hosts many healers of all kinds--massage therapists, herbalists, energy workers, chiropractors, mediums and more. If you're seeking one-to-one health support, the managers of the Library Loft are both practitioners. Jillian operates a tea and sound meditations company that offers deep rest, relaxation and awareness experiences. She's also an herbalist who offers education and remedies. Chris works as a mindset coach and teaches yoga classes on Sundays and Wednesdays at Sunwater Spa in neighboring Manitou Springs. Sunwater offers a full range of treatments for guests, as well as hot mineral tub soaking and sauna experiences. Recreational and Medical Marijuana facilities abound, with the two most prominent--Emerald Fields and Maggie's Farm-- located a few minutes West toward Manitou Springs. Note, however, that The Keys is a completely smoke free environment.
