About this listing

Dogs and humans welcome!

The space

"The Dog House" is a charming cottage in the Old North End within walking distance to Colorado College, city parks, trails, neighborhood coffee shops, grocery stores, and just 1 mile to downtown. Watch the sun set behind Pikes Peak while enjoying the fire pit, enjoy a home cooked meal on the patio, or ask friends over for a BBQ. DOGS ARE WELCOME limit 2 under 60lbs they cannot be left alone in cottage a fully fenced dog friendly yard is available. No kenneling in house.

The one bedroom, one bathroom cottage is best described as "old meets new." It is fully furnished with Italian leather furniture, cowhide rug, Samsung LCD TV w/ Apple TV & DVD player, comfortable queen size bed, and primitive furniture that came out West in wagons. The kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils, pots, pans, even spices and basic necessities that previous guests have donated to the collection.

Take a soak in the claw foot tub, or relax under the rain shower. Cook with the modern gas stove, and don't worry about dishes, just leave them in the dishwasher to be done on your departure. Access to washer and dryer can be arranged for stays of a week or more, bring your own supplies. Sleep in West Elm bedding ~ super cozy sheets, down pillows, and comforter. If you stay two nights or for the week or longer, you will be looking forward to your next visit to Colorado Springs.


A view of Pikes Peak greets you every morning from bed when you look out the window.

Let me know if you need anything from the store before you arrive so you don't waste vacation time shopping.

Guest access

A fenced yard for pets to play.
If you stay 7 days or longer, access to washer and dryer in cottage is available.

Interaction with guests

I try to greet each guest upon arrival. If it is not an option because of schedule conflicts,
I'll arrange access and touch base via text or mobile.

Other things to note

I always stock coffee, tea, spices, and some basics to cook because there is nothing worse than having to buy a whole bottle of something when you only use a teaspoon. My only ask is if you use it all up, leave something you didn't need the whole bottle of so we keep the collection going for everyone.

The place was very comfortable and cozy! We enjoyed the kitchen being stalked with basic spices and cooking ingredients. There were times when the neighbors' dogs would be barking a lot. The location is very close to downtown and a nice running path nearby. We enjoyed our stay here!

The Dog House is a cute get-away for a couple - luxurious bed, clawfoot tub, eat-in kitchen with all the amenities. Beautiful outdoor space and a friendly, knowledgeable host. We are repeat visitors!

I am a corporate trainer and road warrior. I have spent a lot of time in hotel rooms and always appreciate comfortable quarters. You will find a comfortable bed, nice towels, and a clean house when you arrive, just like I expect when I travel.
