I have owned this cottage for many years and grew up in this area attending local schools and hiking this area for many many years. For me it is the perfect location for a peaceful retreat or a busy vacation.
Elizabeth (Bet) Mulholland purchased this cottage in 1986
The property is located in the southwest of Colorado Springs. It is a fun, quaint and quirky neighborhood with narrow winding roads and tiny houses. The area originally housed many TB patients coming for the cure in the pure mountain air! Medicine thought it was a benefit to sleep in unheated porches and many of the little houses were home to many of these patients.
All who come to stay or visit this property seem to love the cozy feeling it brings and the wonderful sunny rooms. The property offers a wonderful location if you just want to relax, be busy hiking or seeing this spectacular city! Autumn is especially lovely. Clear blue skies, cool nights, shimmering aspen and colorful scrub oak make this a delightful retreat!
Thanks for a lovely place to stay and all the hospitable touches. we enjoyed the lights from the windows and the deck.
My husband and I recently stayed for 4 days in this cute and charming cottage in Colorado Springs! We loved everything about this home and how clean and inviting the atmosphere felt during our stay. Bet had everything that we could have possibly needed and more and was very accommodating during our stay. She even allowed us to check-in early on our first day since we had a wedding rehearsal to go to and we were so grateful for her being so accommodating with us about that. One of our favorite parts about the house was the private back deck that we enjoyed sitting on and sipping our coffee each morning. We even saw several deer in the yard below resting each afternoon.The house is in a great location with beautiful hiking nearby, which we loved! We enjoyed great coffee and breakfast at the local coffee shop and loved feeling at home each night after a long day of adventures around the beautiful Colorado mountains. Another great thing about this home was the nice big windows in the bedroom, that let in a great amount of sunlight, but could be pulled down if you wanted to sleep in each morning. We enjoyed opening the windows in the bedroom to allow fresh air in as we got ready each morning since this home has screens on the windows. I would highly recommended this home to anyone looking for a quiet get away with charm, cleanliness and all of the amenities that you could possibly need during a vacation. My husband and I will most definitely be back to visit this cottage very soon! Thank you again Bet for sharing your beautiful home with us! :)
This house was a fantastic, cozy, little cottage around the corner from the beaten path. It was close enough that you could be in downtown Colorado Springs in about 10-20 minutes (great food in the area), but far enough that you felt like you were away from it all when at the house. It is also very close to the Broadmoor. Everything was very clean and the provided AC unit was plenty to keep things cool. It was a quiet, clean, comfy place to spend our nights. Bet was very accommodating, and we had no problems.
Our expectations were exceeded. We loved the many windows and overall feel of the place inside. Quiet neighborhood. We'll be back.
This place was perfect for two people and was a great hub for us during our visit with family this holiday. We didn't use the kitchen but did enjoy our morning coffee and watching the birds and squirrels. There are two owls that were fun to listen to at night while reading by the quaint fireplace. Hiking in north Cheyenne canyon is literally a five minute walk up the street.
I was attending a conference at the Broadmore and stayed at Bet's cottage. It was a welcome retreat to come back to each night. The cottage was within walking distance and the surrounding area is beautiful. The cottage had everything I required for my stay. It was clean and cozy. The fireplace was a wonderful treat. Bet was a great host and checked on me before and during my stay. I would definitely stay again.
Our cottage is located close to many sports activities, sightseeing is abundant with many sights within a few minutes hike or drive!
