Wake up to Pikes Peak!

House - Private room · Shalimar Dr, Colorado Springs, CO 80915, United States

The Space

Sleep as long as you like at 6,035 feet in your own private bedroom with attached full bath. Or rise early and take in fresh mountain air on nearby neighborhood trails. The coffee and Internet are always on, you are welcome in our kitchen, or, weather-permitting, to enjoy your breakfast on our flagstone patio in full view of Pikes Peak.

There is an apartment-size refrigerator just outside your room. Our dog and cat are friendly and will probably ignore you. There is room in our driveway for your car. On weekends, we usually cook breakfast and you will be welcome to join us. If you prefer to go out, we can direct you to dozens of restaurants within a couple of miles.

We are a 15-minute drive or $25 cab ride from the Colorado Springs Municipal airport and about the same to the downtown area. Here on the east-central side of town there are plenty of theaters and shopping, bike and walking trails. Downtown Colorado Springs is full of restaurants, parks and coffee shops. We can show you how to take a bike trail all the way downtown, about 7 miles.

You will enjoy using our quiet, older neighborhood as a base for your trips to the Garden of the Gods, the U.S. Air Force Academy, or even to the top of "America's Mountain."

  • I had a wonderful stay with Shannon and her husband Tim. They arranged for a lovely room with an adjoining private bath. Everything was clean and neat with the warm feeling of home. The neighborhood is residential and felt quite safe. I also enjoyed my conversations with both Tim and Shannon.
    It was a very easy car ride to downtown Colorado Springs and all the major tourist sites.
    I look forward to visiting again on my next trip.

  • I spent one night at the Rowans', and was happily buried in my book while I was there. Their house was clean and quiet, the bed was comfy, and there was a bathroom right off the bedroom. The Rowans were quite hospitable, and seemed flexible and easygoing. Their dogs were friendly and very well-behaved. I'd love to stay there again.

  • What a good experience. Shannon was away, but Tim couldn't have been a better host. He was friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and neat. It was so nice being warmly welcomed into their home. I highly recommend their home.

  • Tim and Shannon were very accommodating. While our visit was short, we were pleasantly greeted and enjoyed getting to know each other on the evening of our arrival. In the morning they had a wonderful breakfast spread with fruit, muffins, granola and coffee and tea. It was delightful!

  • Tim and Sharon were excellent hosts and we loved the dogs! We were only there a brief time, but we were able to explore a lot thanks to their recommendations! We had a lovely breakfast just before we left. Thanks so much!

  • We spent a week end in Shannon's house and had a great time !
    . The guest room and bathroom were really nice ant neat and also very private. Our first breakfast was very good and plentiful : yogurts, muffins, cereals, fruits, tea/ coffee..
    Their house is in a very quiet neighbourhood , the garden is lovely and having our breakfast in their patio was really enjoyable. We were able to try their hot tub as well.
    The house's location is really convenient too.
    On top of everything, The Rowans are such nice people, they helped us a lot in finding nice things to do around Colorado Springs. They also were very flexible on check in and check out times

  • Shannon was very kind and accommodating. Also responsive to my request on short notice. Pleasant home in a nice and safe neighborhood. Had private downstairs with bed and bath and sitting area all to myself. Enjoyed a bite of breakfast with Shannon who has many worthwhile interests. Recommended!

  • We haves used airbnb quite a bit and our stay with Shannon was one of our very best! We were welcomed in by their family and they made us feel very at home. The basement and adjoining bathroom provided a lot of privacy but we also had the pleasure of getting to know our hosts ( and sampling Shannon's baking). The location was an easy drive to downtown and garden of the gods. We hope to visit again soon!

  • I had an amazing time at Tim and Shannon's house. They are both extremely nice and welcoming people. And their dogs are just as friendly! I had my very own downstairs area where I had a rec room, bedroom and bathroom. Tim and Shannon had tons of great advice about what to do in Colorado and made some incredible food during my stay. Their home is spotless and is centrally located in Colorado Springs, making it easy to get around the city and the state. I would highly recommend their place to anyone hoping to stay in Colorado Springs!

About
I am a retired teacher who taught mostly 2nd and 3rd grade for 23 years. I just retired this year. I love to work outdoors in my yard in the summertime. I garden and do larger landscaping projects such as building decks and patios. I also love to read (mostly fiction) and hike. My husband and I have 5 grandchildren whom we love to spend time with. We also like to go to the theater and to travel. I lived for 5 years in Lyons, France. So France has a special place in my heart, but I am happy going anywhere and I always find neat places to visit wherever we are. Sometimes, we camp; sometimes we stay with friends or in B & B's and sometimes we do the hotel thing. Just depends on where we are. We have one dog and one cat. They are very well behaved and won't bother our AirBnB guests. My husband is a writer and public speaker. When he is in town, he works in his home office and is often available all day. When he is traveling, he may be away for a few days at a time. He has set up a high-speed, wireless network in the house that guests are welcome to use. From time to time, one or more of our grown children will drop by, the guitars come out and we harmonize to the songs they grew up with. Having the house full of people is one of our favorite things. I have a heart for women's issues, and I belong to the Zonta Club of the Pikes Peak area which strives to improve the economic and educational status of women both locally and internationally. In conjunction with Zonta, I started a program called Launching Families which pairs mentors with girls aging out of the foster care system and heading on to college.
