About this listing

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.

Our dog and cat are friendly and will probably ignore you. Your well-behaved, dog/cat friendly pet is welcome but must accompany you on all of your outings. 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 $30 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."

Guest access

Your private bath is attached to your room. Outside your room, there are couches and a coffee table. Down the hall, there is a modest exercise room with TV. If you need to use our kitchen to prepare a meal or two, just let us know in advance.

Interaction with guests

We enjoy getting to know our guests over breakfast which we provide on the first day of your stay. We are also happy to leave you to your privacy if you prefer. You will have a key so you can come and go as you please. And we are happy to tell you about our favorite places to eat or go sightseeing.

Other things to note

Shannon is fluent in French and Tim is competent in Spanish.

The city of Colorado Springs is now requiring that we pay a city sales and lodging tax of 4.5%. Because we do not wish to raise our room price, we are including the tax in the $50/night price.

We enjoyed staying at Shannon's home. The accommodations were clean and very good and had a private bathroom and use of the adjoining family room. We really enjoyed visiting with them. The location was great for getting to sites we wanted to visit. We highly recommend this place to stay if you're in the area.

The house is located in a wonderful spot. It is a close drive to Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks and several other awesome attractions. Shannon is a great host and very easy to talk to. There was plenty of coffee to drink each morning and Shannon's muffins are great!

Shannon is a wonderful host. She has a beautiful home that is clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our four day stay there and wished we could have stayed longer. Her two dogs are very friendly. She goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need and has a lot of information about the activities in the area. Her breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay there again when we are in Colorado Springs.

Response from Shannon:
HI Steve, I apologize profusely for the slight odor. The airbnb guests that we had before you had a peculiar odor and although I aired the room and used various products to try to get rid of the smell I couldn't. I think we got rid of that odor but it has taken a good 2 weeks. I am so sorry. We have never had that problem before.

I am a retired teacher who taught mostly 2nd and 3rd grade for 23 years. My husband, Tim, is a consultant and writer for home healthcare providers. 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 with our dogs. We 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 to go anywhere and always find neat places to visit wherever we are. Sometimes we camp, sometimes we stay with friends or in other AirBnBs, and sometimes we do the hotel thing. Just depends on where we are. We have two friendly dogs -- a Labradoodle and a Cocker Spaniel -- and one ornery cat. They are very well behaved and never bother our 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.
