About Emily

Hello! Emily here, to tell you about my home in Colorado Springs. I am a Colorado native. I grew up in Denver and went to the Unversity of Northern Colorado. My husband grew up in Colorado Springs and is a physician here in town. My father's family settled in southern Colorado in the 1760's--so our roots run deep in this part of the country. Colorado Springs has so much to offer the traveler. The history of the area is like no other. From the gold mining towns to the railroads, to the Native Americans and to Pikes Peak--this town tells the story of the Old West. There is so much to do and see here! The city has great museums, shops, galleries, restaurants, brew pubs and night clubs. Five minutes from our door are some unbelievably amazing mountain trails for any level of hiker. We take pride in our collection of trail maps and guides that will help you plan your day. Garden of the Gods is a short drive to some of the most magnificent rock formations one can ever see. We love living here and take advantage of year round outdoor activities. Breckenridge ski area is a beautiful two hour drive away. My husband even cross country skis around our neighborhood! We bike and hike year round. We have deer, foxes and an occasional bear that visit our property. I am looking forward to talking to you about your stay at the Blue Gate.

Emily purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Emily chose Colorado Springs

We are perfectly situated near the downtown area but you feel like you are in the mountains. If you are attending a conference at the Broadmoor you are literally around the corner from the resort and conference center. We are at the gateway to two beautiful canyons--North and South Cheyenne Canyon. The view from our deck constantly amazes us with it's beauty. The weather is quite mild and we get more sunny days that San Diego!

What makes this apartment unique

We have been told we have the best view in the area. It amazes us every day. This is a place where you can put your feet up and read a book while gazing at the mountain range. This is a place where you can enjoy the many outdoor activities that the Colorado front range has to offer. You can experience the luxurious feel of the Broadmoor Resort and take advantage of it's fine restaurants and lovely grounds but not break the bank.

Delighted in every way!

  • 5 of 5

From the first point of contact, Emily was warm, professional, and helpful. The information and photos give an accurate representation, but it was even better than expected. FABULOUS location just a few minutes walk from the Broadmoor, wonderful views, and well appointed apartment. Lot's of very thoughtful touches and so comfortable in every way. My husband and I stayed for 6 days and could not have been happier with everything about the Blue Gate. Highest recommendation and we hope to return in the future. Thank you so much!

Perfect with every attention to detail for a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room, privacy, and oh my what a patio view of the mountains. Close to everything. An absolute perfect host/hostess ready, willing, and able to help make your stay like being at home on vacation. Easy day trips to all the area vistas and then you come "home" to the mountain show for the day. If you just want quiet and relaxation there was plenty to be had. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place!

Beautiful, convenient, incredible hospitality, just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Gate June 6-11. I attended a medical conference at the Broadmoor and we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Emily was wonderful to work with during the booking process. She went above and beyond by providing fresh flowers, champagne, and chocolates. She has supplied everything you will need for your stay including hiking gear, coolers, backpacks, dryer, soap, shampoo coffee filters etc. The apartment is under the owners home and you can hear them walking around, but it is not intrusive at all. The space is large, nicely appointed, and the view off the porch is amazing. Tons of fun activities. Highly recommend Pike's Peak cog railway, Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (awesome), Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun, 7 Falls, Airforce Base, and Royal Gorge. Stay here!
