About Debbie and Luke Ellington
We moved to Colorado after marrying over 30 years ago. We have always enjoyed awesome mountain setting nestled right up against the foothills at the base of Pikes Peak, the deep blue skies and the numerous sunny days we have here. We love hiking and the opportunities are endless here. Skiing 2 hours away. What's not to like!?
Debbie and Luke Ellington purchased this House in 2011
Why Debbie and Luke Ellington chose West Colorado Springs
We moved here after many years of living in the mountains at 8500 ft. We were very choosy about the location of where we would live in the Springs. This home was the perfect location for us. So close to many trails and parks which we love to access. There are lots of fun festivals in Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City besides good restaurants and shops. When we need a mountain fix, we can access them easily from here. This neighborhood has old growth trees, and no two houses are the same. This is not a track home! But it is a very scenic special neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that we can walk up the street and be in Garden of the Gods for awesome hikes and views that we never get tired of. Down the street Amada Fonda has a really nice outdoor creekside dining area for drinks and Mexican food. Or visit the shops, penny arcade, and restaurants and bars in funky Manitou Springs. Drive to the top of 14,000 Pikes Peak in the summer. Or take the Cog Railway to the top. The 5 Star Broadmoor Hotel is 20 minutes away. Besides the great hiking in Garden of the Gods, there is Red Rocks only minutes away. Colorado Springs offers nightlife on Tejon Street, 5 miles away. Or just go 2 miles to Colorado Mountain Brewery. White water raft 2 hours away. Olympic Training Center 20 minutes, Royal Gorge Suspension Bridge 1 hr, Cripple Creek Casinos 50 minutes, Air Force Academy 25 minutes. Warm and dry in summer.

Debbie and Luke were amazingly hospitable and generous! Their home was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The property was spacious and had ample room for our family to spread out and relax. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful flowers in the backyard and loved the location. The hot tub was an added bonus, along with the board games they provided. We had hoped to use the fire pit but ran out of time. Amos and Andy we're delightful. We were walking distance from the Garden of the Gods and took advantage of that often. It was conveniently located and definitely a place we would return to in the future. We are so grateful we found this outstanding property!
Very nice we loved it. We are going to rebook for next year
The accommodations were perfect Luke and Deb were very polite and nice and it was easy to get to everything that we wanted to.
We absolutely loved this rental. From the snack basket (small but very nice gesture) to the great location, it was wonderful! Rental was clean and very spacious. We had a packed schedule so we were unable to enjoy the beautiful backyard but it looked lovely. We come to the Springs area every now and again and would certainly try to book this place next time again! We never met the owners (which is fine for us) but knew they were accessible if needed. We did eat at one of their dining recommendations, and it was very good (and within a mile, so we walked). We took advantage of the fact it was within a five minute walk to the start of one of the Garden of the Gods trails. Overall, we were very happy!
Great house! Great location!
This was a great house with beautiful backyard, which is a close walk to the Garden of the Gods. The only downside is that my husband and I had no ATT cell phone coverage. So, we did have wi-fi and I was able to talk to my children that way, but was unable to receive any texts or phone calls. This was a challenge for us and I wish I would have known ahead of time. Other than that, the hot tub is a great way to unwind after a long day out and the backyard is beautiful!
Beautiful home with Amazing views. Private and clean. So convenient for the area. We will definitely
I miss it so much already.
Very nice place would give it a 4.5 star if it allowed
Only reason I did not give it a 5 is because the weather was warm and the window air conditioners just didn’t cool it to our comfort level. Also the road construction in the area made it more difficult to get there however that’s a temporary issue. Rental was clean, nicely decorated and close to the locations we were interested in.
We are close to many of the sights you would like to see. Cave of the Winds, The Cliff Dwellings, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Santa's Workshop, and Garden of the Gods are all within a 5 minute drive. Colorado hiking is some of the best, and the Garden of the Gods is literally 2 minutes from our house. Numerous whitewater rafting opportunities are available within 2 hours of the house.
