Near Old Colorado City, this is a modern, beautifully appointed space in the historic, eclectic, "Westside" neighborhood. It is an independent, light filled loft above a detached garage, having vaulted ceilings with fans, and a skylight. The floors are natural concrete with warm, radiant heat during the cold season. The kitchen contains a gas range, a refrigerator, and microwave, (no dishwasher) and is completely outfitted for full meal preparations and serving. There is off street parking in the driveway below, off the alley, with a private, secure entrance. (I am in the house in front.)
The daybed in the main living area stores a trundle underneath so it can separately (or together) sleep two people. There is a queen sized bed in the bedroom, and ample closet and drawer space. There is a shower only. From one to four people can be very comfortable as guests.
The loft is within walking or short driving distance to historic Old Colorado City with its shops, galleries, restaurants, and summertime Saturday farmer's market in Bancroft Park. It is only a ten minute drive downtown to the east with more shops and restaurants, museums and galleries. Just beyond that is Memorial Park with its Olympic velodrome and annual Labor Day balloon fest. Slightly north of downtown is Colorado College (Alum mom, 2010!). It is less than 15 minutes from the Broadmoor Conference Center. The space has easy access to the Cimarron Expressway (Hwy. 24) for travel either to the freeway or west into the mountains, Manitou Springs, and Garden of the Gods. It is also near the Midland Trail for bicycling, walking, or jogging. There is a bus stop on the corner for public transportation.
From the north and west views one can catch glimpses of the beautiful Rocky Mountains and foothills. It is truly a comfortable and inviting loft, created by and for an artist, and continuing to show some local creations.
I believe everything is accurately described and listed. If you have any questions, please inquire. I am happy to accommodate.

Kimberly's Artist's loft is AMAZING! Excellent location, perfect comfort, ALL the amenities of home! On a scale of 1-10? I'd give it a 20! And Kimberly is so kind and attentive to every detail! She even loaned me Christmas decorations to make the loft cozy and festive in December! She is an excellent host! Love this place and will stay whenever I am in town! 110% better than a hotel for long or short term stays! Thank you Kimberly!
This little loft is so nice and cozy! Kimberly decorated it so nicely! I loved my stay here. It is in a great location close to so many good restaurants and coffee shops! She is very nice and easy to work with. I would definitely stay here again!
The Artist's Loft delivers, above and beyond expectations. Staying there was just like having a friend who offers you their residence for a vacation.
Kimberly always responds promptly and clearly in arranging logistics and any other interests one might have.
We would stay there again with no reservations whatsoever. And by the way, that neighborhood of Colorado Springs known as Old Colorado City abounds with interesting and excellent restaurants and shops.
This is a great find for Colorado Springs. The location, while in a slightly sketchy area, was perfect for sight seeing. It is really close to the Broadmoor, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, all of the Manitou Springs sights, etc.
The loft is perfectly clean and very well stocked in case you forgot something from home while traveling! I think we ate the chocolates in the first 15 minutes we were there! ;)
We wish all of the Airbnbs that we have stayed at were like this!!! The value cannot be beat!
There were many pleasant surprises at Kimberly's Artist Loft Apartment in Colorado Springs--including fresh fruit and a well stocked kitchen. The location was remarkably handy to a lot of the recreational and tourist destinations on the west side of town--just one block off of Colorado Drive and within easy walking distance of the old Colorado City commercial district. The only disadvantage was that we arrived after dark in a rain storm, which made finding the loft over the garage in the alley behind the house a bit of a challenge. Kimbery was very helpful with directing us from her house to the apartment. Because of the close proximity to the commercial tourist areas there were some occasional noises from the streets and the alley, but it was not a persistent problem. I would highly reccomend the loft for a week-long visit for parties of 2-4.
The Artist's Loft is very clean and is in the perfect location. Kimberly is very sweet and accommodating. The only drawbacks were no air conditioning, no cable TV and the dishwasher wasn't working. Otherwise, it's a very nice place to stay.
This place is great. We stayed for 2 months. You feel like you are staying at a friends place while they are on vacation-meaning the apartment has everything that you could possibly need. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is ready for you to cook... The apartment is also close to lots of shops and restaurants in Old Colorado City.
The only negatives are that as a woman, I wouldn't walk around alone at night. There are a few characters out at night who hang out in the park, and also, the neighbors have dogs that bark at night (this is really only happened twice, but in the name of full disclosure, you should know). The dogs probably keep the neighborhood safe, but it turns to a nuisance when you are trying to sleep.
Kim is very (email hidden)r example, we had our own towels and bedding, and Kim helped us store what she had in the apartment for us with her. She is always available to help if you need it, but you don't feel like you are living with a dorm parent. This place is really ideal for short or longer stays. You can get by without a car (if you have one, there is parking in front) but I'd recommend a bike at least to get around town.. there are tons of beautiful places to hike nearby.
This place was perfect! Very close to downtown and Old Colorado City, super well decorated, and Kim was very accommodating.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
