CS purchased this house in 2010

Why CS chose Old Colorado City

Colorado's unsurpassed natural beauty surrounds the house and provides endless possibilities for excitement and exploration. Old Colorado City is described as the gateway to the American West, the neighborhood is framed by the picturesque mountains, lush meadows and scenic canyons that have inspired visitors for centuries. Colorado Springs and the cute historic towns offer an inspiring array of outdoor activities that take advantage of the natural beauty of Colorado and caters to guests' and their individual interests.

What makes this house unique

With over 300 days of sunshine each year and virtually no humidity, Colorado Springs provides the perfect backdrop to explore the timeless beauty of the West. Historic Old Colorado City is less than 3 blocks away from the house and less than a 4 minute walk, during the summer every Saturday from 7AM-1:00PM we have a Farmer's Market with local produce, meats, cheese, bread and flowers. Throughout the summer every Thursday at Bancroft Park we have concerts and all summer long we have festivals and a Friday Night Art Walk.

Peaceful and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay in my little "doll house"! The house was filled with little things to make me feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that I needed to prepare a meal and then sit either outside in the back on the picnic table or on the beautiful front porch. Christine was always available to answer any questions. The location is great too! I highly recommend it! And so does my dog who was more than welcomed to be there!

Wonderful cozy house minutes away from everything!

  • 5 of 5

This rental had everything we could possibly need and more. Christina has really thought of everything and definitely went above and beyond our expectations. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and our dog enjoyed roaming the backyard. The kitchen is so well stocked and we even took advantage of the grill during our stay. There were games, DVDs, softballs, mitts, takeout menus, information pamphlets about the local attractions and even extra doggie bags available for us. Our girls especially loved playing battleship! The house was literally within 15 minutes of most everything we did, right around the corner from a park and a short walk to downtoan! We loved our stay and would highly recommend this rental to friends in the future! Thank you!
