About Elizabeth (Bet) Mulholland

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

Why Elizabeth (Bet) Mulholland chose Colorado Springs

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

Such a peaceful and charming cottage for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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! :)

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a couple days away to ourselves, and this cottage provided the perfect place. It was clean, inviting and private. Bet is a wonderful hostess and has made sure the cottage is ready for her guests to enjoy. Instructions for check-in and check-out were simple and clear. We had a great stay at this cottage and would definitely go back.

cozy get-away for two...

  • 4 of 5

The other reviews seemed to sum it up, it's a cozy little "tiny home" (almost) in a quiet neighborhood. We were in the winter, so the foliage was not there to make it a completely secluded (there are houses very near by). That being said, we never saw any people, deer, yes (they came right up to the window when we were making breakfast one day). The cottage is very clean and cozy and we would recommend it to any couple (no more than two)...

Charming cottage with all the comfort of home

  • 5 of 5

This is just the perfect place to have have the privacy of a home instead of a nice hotel room...And for the same price! All the upgrades such as heated bathroom floors, tolietries and even a washer and dryer were a surprise! We are at the Cliff House right now and wish we had another night at Far Cry instead!

Perfect place to stay in Colorado Springs!

  • 5 of 5

My family lived in Colorado Springs for 11 years. My 2 daughters were born there and always want to visit. Far Cry cottage is perfect in every way - comfortable, lovely, location is absolutely perfect. Minutes from EVERYTHING (Broadmoor, Parks, Restaurants) yet feels like you're in the mountains. The owners thought of every need when setting up the cottage. All you need to do is bring your clothes and stop by the Safeway for groceries. I will be back. - Suzanne
