Our family of 4 stayed in the cottage for two nights at the end of March, for a spring break getaway. It was tastefully and comfortably furnished, and the layout worked well for us. Our kids (2 and 4 yrs) slept in the front bedroom, which has a queen bed. The room faces a busy street and there is a lot of traffic noise, but there was a whitenoise machine in the room and anyway the traffic soothed our kids to sleep. The room has a door opening onto the front porch, but we were able to drag the bureau over a few inches to ensure our kids didn't slip outside in the night. The kids weren't so keen on sharing a bed, so we put a thermarest on the floor and our son slept there.
We slept in the back bedroom, in a nice king bed. We kept some food in the cottage and ate breakfast in the kitchen. We could have cooked full meals but chose to eat out for lunch and dinner. There is a washer/dryer, bathtub/shower, central heating and plenty of space for the children to play. They had a great firepit set up out back but we didn't use it. there was plenty of parking. Mike was friendly, nice and understanding of our needs. He worked it out so we could check in a little early so our daughter could nap in the cottage.
The hotel is super convenient to several attractions--Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs (with Cave of the Winds and the Cliff Dwellings), Old Colorado City, and even the Cheyenne Mountain zoo is pretty close. We enjoyed not having to drive for ages to get where we wanted to go. There is a Safeway supermarket right across the street.
Keep in mind that it is an old cottage, not a luxury resort, and you'll be very pleased with your stay. Highly recommended for families.
