About Bob & Barbara Seeds

We moved from southern California to C.S. in 1994. After a trip with 3 buddies, between their junior & senior years in high school, in Albuquerque, Bob had a dream to live close to the Rocky mountains. So, 20 years ago, he 'wooed' me away from my native California to Colorado Springs. We have enjoyed the beauty of Colorado, visiting many of its surrounding sites & cities.

Bob & Barbara Seeds purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Bob & Barbara Seeds chose Colorado Springs

We chose this home after looking for several years in the Patty Jewett area. We love the charm of the neighborhood & the homes in this section of Colorado Springs. Most of the homes were built in the 1920s-1950s. The streets are lined with large, mature trees with unique cottage/bungalow/craftsman-style homes. After purchasing this home in May '14, we began its renovation. We gutted & remodeled the kitchen, updated the bath, installed new energy efficient windows & 2-inch blinds, refinished the hardwood floors, freshly painted the inside, added new baseboards, & built a laundry room. We also redid some landscaping, & look forward to planting additional trees, perennials & annuals. It has been a labor of love as we scoured furniture stores, antique malls, Ikea & a host of other shops to make this home a comfortable & inviting get away in the heart of Colorado Springs.

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this home for its cozy feel & central location. It is 2 blocks from Patty Jewett Golf Course, 5 blocks from a Safeway grocery store, Ace Hardware, & Medicine Shoppe pharmacy. There is a nearby park with tennis courts. It is just minutes from downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City & Manitou; Colorado College & the Olympic Training Center are also just a few minutes away, as are two excellent hospitals - Memorial Hospital & Penrose Hospital. Within a few miles to the north is the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) & the Air Force Academy; Garden of the Gods is a short drive to the west.

Our Month Stay in July

  • 4 of 5

The property was as advertised. It was in good working order, clean, and adequately furnished. The Central AC was a major attribute for the month of July. We found the location to be very central to the Springs, where the only issue was the traffic on the street and that is the reason for the 4 star analysis. The Seeds were very attentive and easy to work with. It is a good property for 2 people.

Cute Bungalow in Historic Colorado Springs Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This little Bungalow was perfect for our stay. The home is immaculately kept by Bob and Barbara and features all the amenities you could ask for. Great kitchen, nice little patio and grill out back and a covered porch out front with a picture perfect view of Pikes Peak in the distance. Beautiful little neighborhood and close to everything. Two blocks from coffee shop and gas station/convenience store and easy walking distance to major grocery store. Minutes from the freeway, Garden of the Gods, Downtown Co. Springs and old Colorado City. We loved our stay here and the owners, Bob and Barbara Seeds, treated us great. Book this place if you are looking for an easy, no hassle transaction. Loved it!!!!

Lovely with EVERY convenience!

  • 5 of 5

Busy graduation weekend in the Springs! This property is the best location we've chosen out of all of our previous stays. Why? Union Boulevard ended up being our connection practically everywhere we went. No crazy highway congestion to deal with, very little traffic, and therefore, very little stress. Close to downtown, parks, grocery, car wash, ... The cottage itself is warm and inviting and had EVERYTHING we could possibly need! So nice after long day of travel. It was perfect in every way. Bob and Barbara are generous hosts who were easy, available, and made us feel so welcome and comfortable ( comfy bed, lots of fluffy towels, snacks and staples, COFFEE, great kitchen, garage with auto garage door opener, lots of windows, charming old house beautifully restored, tidy porches, pretty yard with lovely view of Pike's Peak, they even provided passes to nearby gym, ... I could go on and on! They make it like home with tissues in every room, good lotion and the like, CHOCOLATE, et al, ...) Thank you so much Bob and Barbara for your attention to detail, your easy, relational style (although we didn't meet face to face, your personal touches, notes, messages, and accessibility spoke highly of you and we would have loved to meet you both) and for helping to make our stay so delightful as we traveled to celebrate and attend our married kids' graduations from UCCS and Regis! Yay! And their new home purchase! We're very proud! Great trip!
