This home was only 15 minutes from most spots we wanted to visit while in Colorado Springs. It was nicely decorated and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We especially enjoyed being able to cook or prepare food ourselves, after having been in hotels and using restaurants for a week. The bed and pillows were comfortable (very important to us), as was the living room furniture and the cozy front porch.
If you are looking for all the comforts of home, you've found it at what I call the "Victorian Cozy Cottage". Everything mentioned regarding this place is spot on, all the amenities you would probably find in your own home & more. It is absolutely close to everything you might like to visit & see. One evening while I was relaxing on the porch after a day of hiking Pikes, a buck decided to pass by in the alley way, guess he didn't want to travel Palette Ave. I will definitely be booking this home again on my next visit to Colorado/Manitou Springs. Thank you Carrie for everything & being a wonderful Host.
My wife and I had a great week in Colorado Springs and there was not a day where we sat without anything to do. The location of this home was perfect and close to everything we needed. Carrie was fabulous to work with and made our stay easy and enjoyable. Such a cute little home with a Victorian charm. We had a great time and we would definitely stay here again.
We were so happy we chose to stay at the cottage. It is super clean and has a warm, cozy feel. The kitchen is a good size and very well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and even lots of different spices. There is an outside grill which we also used. We were also very grateful for the washer and dryer. Carrie welcomed us to her home with a snack basket on the counter, water and juice in the refrigerator, and fresh flowers on the table. She was super responsive to all our emails prior to our stay and very easy to work with.
The other great benefit of the cottage is its location. It was a very short drive to Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, the Broadmoor, Cheyenne Zoo, Olympic Training Center, and wonderful parks and canyons for hiking. When we arrived home from our daily adventure, we relaxed on the front porch. We had a great stay and vacation in Colorado Springs!
