Overview

About the property

Near downtown, CC, Monument Valley Park with great decor and inviting space.

Enjoy our newly renovated home, bright and sunny rooms throughout, and a fun family room in the basement, with gaming system and bean bag furniture. Each room is thoughtfully decorated with a combination of antiques and comfortable new furnishings.The kitchen is well appointed with new stainless appliances and beautiful granite countertops. Everything you could want, even for the most gourmet cook. The bath has a dazzling new floor to ceiling tiled shower with a lovely freestanding glass enclosure. Sleep the night away on new Tempur-Pedic mattresses, a variety of fresh pillows to choose from and new, fresh linens. Also, enjoy brand new, digital, remote control air conditioning in each room to make you cool when the days get hot. You can enjoy the out of doors swinging on the front porch swing, sitting on the back porch at the cafe table with a newspaper​ and coffee, resting around the fire pit with seating for 8 or relax in the hot tub with seating for 6. My favorite room is the basement, with a large egress window to let in plenty of light. Or wait until nighttime and turn on the fairy lights, relax in the bean bag furniture and best each other on the guitars with Beatles rock band. It is a great, relaxing, magical space for all ages. It is a one of a kind, spectacular property. Don't miss it!

We would love to host you downtown in the heart of Colorado Springs. This lovely, sunny cottage built in 1920, is located in the Historic District just north of Colorado College and Downtown. Jump on bikes and ride the numerous trails nearby, or use the cruisers that are provided and ride downtown to great restaurants, venues and take in beautiful Pikes Peak. The Old North End is a great walking neighborhood with great sidewalks, biking and a wonderful community feel. It is central to everything you could ever want see in Colorado Springs: The USAFA, The Cheyenne Mtn. Zoo, Broadmoor, Manitou Springs, Downtown, hiking, exploring and just relaxing.

About Caren McCurdy

My husband and I have 4 children and have lived in Colorado Springs since 2002. We are avid travelers and love to see and visit new countries and areas within our own beautiful country. We love to ski, hike, bike, and explore new areas. We are originally from Oklahoma and Florida. We would love to welcome you to Colorado Springs.

Caren McCurdy purchased this house in 2016

Why Caren McCurdy chose East Colorado Springs

This property is just a few blocks from our own home. We love downtown living. There is no place in Colorado Springs that we would rather live. I love the history that older homes have and the original details that sometimes aren't found in newer homes. I enjoy the Clean Lines of the Arts and Crafts style and this cottage is just the right size to feel bright and open, but also cozy at the same time. It has a large yard and is very central to everything.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located, unique area, historical neighborhood- great for wandering around and looking, old house but all the comforts of a new renovation, great outdoor living, bikable.

Friendly neighborhood close to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

Caren’s adorable home provided everything we needed for lots of fun and relaxation. We were with our son for Parents Weekend and he really appreciated having a hot tub. My husband and I loved chilling in the backyard with a glass of wine. Caren, thanks so much for your delightful hospitality!

Great Place close to main attractions

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Caren was great at answering any questions we had and checked in on us when we arrived to make sure all was well. The House was great and as pictured. We brought our own bikes but it was nice she had an air pump and a garage to store them in. We Will stay here again when we come back to Colorado Springs.

Wonderful bungalow in beautiful old Colorado Springs!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with well appointed kitchen. Our 3 boys LOVED the basement! The hot tub was wonderful and the whole family enjoyed relaxing in it at the end of the day. My husband loved the grill - he wants one of his own now! Caren’s home is conveniently located in town and easy to find. We would definitely stay at her home again!!

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This charming house was in the perfect location. The neighborhood was comfortable and we enjoyed being so close to downtown. Evenings spent in the spa discussing our explorations of the day, was just what we were looking for! Thanks for a great getaway in a fun town! And Carin was very attentive and responsive - thank you!!!

Comfort Loaded With Charm

  • 5 of 5

Your hostess, Caren, has created such a special place to enjoy your time in CS. Every detail respects the historic neighborhood, yet, all the comforts of a modern kitchen and comfy beds. This little home was actually larger than expected and we enjoyed game night, cooking, and the proximity to so many places. We had adult children and the four of us truly enjoyed our week in this lovely home. Would HIGHLY recommend this property with character as well as the lovely hostess.
