Description from owner


1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

We would love for you to enjoy our charming little home, built in 1904 in the heart of Downtown Colorado Springs. It has been completely restored with all the modern-day amenities but retains old-world charm with its high ceilings, original woodwork and crown molding. It is tastefully furnished and includes everything that anyone could need to feel right at home. The beautiful kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with spices, basic food items, and condiments. Gorgeous bamboo wood floors throughout the house make for a very clean environment. The property includes a detached two-car garage which is accessed from the alley with walkout into privacy-fenced backyard with towering shade trees. A sidewalk from the garage leads to the back door of the house where you will find a great patio area with a new Propane BBQ grill ready for your use. The yard is perfect for young children to be able to get out and play safely. We do provide a highchair and pack-n-play for infants and toddlers upon request. Our little home is perfect for an individual or couple for extended stays or romantic getaways. It is very cozy and comfortable. A full-size sofa sleeper is included for an extra guest or would be suitable for one or two children. Linens Provided: High-quality sheets and bedding. It is also ideal for those traveling on business or looking for a furnished short term rental. No attention to detail has been missed. Please call us or drop us an email so we can begin helping you plan a memorable visit. We will do everything possible to make your stay comfortable and relaxing.

Time wise, we are 7 minutes from Old Colorado Historic District,10 minutes from the famous 5-star Broadmoor Hotel and the World Arena, 15 minutes from Colorado Springs Airport, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Garden of the Gods, and Seven Falls, Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs, 20 minutes from US Air Force Academy, 45 minutes from the Royal Gorge, one hour from Cripple Creek and Denver, with quick and easy access to I-25.

For hikers, runners and bicyclists, Shooks Run Trail is just 2 blocks west of our house and connects to the Pikes Peak Greenway. If you plan to bring bicycles, you will definitely be in the right spot. With a two-car garage, there is plenty of space for storing those bikes. If it's walking you enjoy, Shooks Run Trail winds through the beautiful, tranquil Shooks Run Park just blocks from the house.
