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.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was awesome! Very clean and well appointed. With no cleaning fees, this is probably the best rental we have ever stayed in for cool home, price, location, and ease of communication with the owners. We will stay here again!

Great location, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My two children and I loved our stay at the Ellington home. The location is perfect for hiking Garden of the Gods. There is plenty of space for sleeping and relaxing. The back yard is beautiful, perfect for morning coffee and late-night dessert. We were thankful for a reasonably priced option that felt like home!

We greatly enjoyed our stay and Luke and Debbie's. It was more space than we ever needed, clean, and super convenient to the many tourist areas we wanted to explore. Luke and Debbie very responsive to our questions (even by text) and had great recommendations for us. We loved all of Debbie's annual flowers and enjoyed an evening in the backyard. We highly recommend staying here!

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.
