Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This is a renovated carriage house behind our home and is close to just about every Colorado Springs attraction! The cottage shares a courtyard with our home, but your entrance and parking spot for the cottage is completely private with a fence separating the two structures. The cottage is sprinkled with some of my paintings and art prints along with everything you will need for a comfortable stay!

◼︎Thorough cleaning team trained in disinfecting & sanitation

◼︎Attractively located on the west side (1 mi to downtown)

❆ IN THE SUMMER: We have two portable AC units that are installed seasonally to cool the space; 1 in the bedroom and 1 in the living room so it stays COLD.

The LOCATION is 3 minutes from downtown, 4 minutes from the Old Colorado City strip (or 20 min walk), and 8 minutes from Manitou Springs; trails connect them all. Very close (less than 10 min) to Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Colorado College, and many other popular attractions.

The bathroom features an updated vanity, a shower and you can expect spa quality shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, and hand soap. We also provide fresh towels and wash cloths, toothbrushes in the medicine cabinet, and a few extra rolls of toilet paper. There is a hair dryer and a first aid kit as well.

We love our neighborhood and love to go on daily walks. There is also a back patio and a fire-pit area with chairs for your use. This backyard is shared with us who live in the house, although we try to leave it open for our guests, mostly.

420/smoking friendly : OUTSIDE ONLY. Just like, be cool about it ok?

My name is Elizabeth, and my husband's name is Blaise. We are proud Basset Hound parents and absolutely love Colorado Springs. My passions include oil painting, design, and nature. Blaise always has his nose in a book and is constantly learning and reorganizing our life for the better. While we are a "yin and yang" couple, we both like to drink copious amounts of coffee, walk our sweet pup Emma Lou, and host new and old friends.

During your stay

We live on the property (front house), but we very rarely see/ meet our guests as there is a fence separating the two dwellings. However, sometimes if guests would like to meet us we are thrilled to do so!
