After Seth had retired from going to three Olympic games, we decided that we had more than sports and a love of fencing in common. Turns out, Seth and I have a passion for homes. We bought this home as a project to work on together after we had already completely remodeled another home. Turns out, taking a home built in 1891 down to the studs is a whole new level of difficult. But, we did it and this home is our labor of love!!We do hope you enjoy our recently finished product!
Paige purchased this House in 2014

CHECK IN: 3PM / CHECK OUT: 10AM Due to housekeeping & pre-rental guest check schedules, we generally cannot accommodate late checkouts or early check-ins.

Please make sure that cigarette butts are deposited in the appropriate container outside. PET POLICY Pets are allowed on a case by case basis. If allowed you must agree to pick up after your pet, always have the pet crate when you are not in the home and to have the pet on a leash in the common areas. Failure to pick up after your pet or of any damage will result in a loss of your damage deposit or you will be directly charged. ADDITIONAL GUESTS/NEIGHBORS Due to the number of sleeping beds, constraints of parking and neighbor/noise issues, the house can only accommodate 8 guests. It does not include guest visiting during the day. Located in a peaceful and serene area, the property is in proximity to neighbors. Please be respectful of neighbors relative to any loud noise. PARKING The driveway does belong to this home. Please park in the driveway or behind the home. Should you need additional parking for visiting guests, have them park in front of the home. Any illegally parked cars or parking not in the correct space is subject to towing; applicable fines/towing fees are the sole responsibility of the vehicle owner. FIRE There is a fire extinguisher under the kitchen sink and CO2 alarms and smoke detectors throughout the home. We have purchased extra batteries and they are in a drawer in the kitchen. In case of a fire call 911. Of course we will do our best to ensure that the batteries are not low in the smoke detectors but have noticed at least in our own home that as luck would happen somehow that beeping sound if it is going to go off tends to start always about 2 am. If for some reason that happened, we wanted to make sure that you could make the smoke detector stop possibly before we could get to you. Extra batteries are in a drawer in the kitchen.

We do not provide refunds for issues beyond our control such as an appliance malfunction, TV/Cable or Internet blackout, power outages, etc. If there are any issues regarding the condition of premises, contact the owner immediately.

Similarly, if the wifi is not working, please unplug it and plug it back in again.

SNOW REMOVAL Colorado Springs does not get a ton of snow and when we do it tends to melt in a day or so. If we do get a heavier storm we do have someone who will come and plow the driveway. There is a bag of ice melt by the front door and a snow shovel. If you do get some snow please feel free to use these supplies. Also note it is very rare to not be able to get around with front a wheel drive and all but a few places in a rear wheel drive car. Colorado Springs and Manitou do a nice job of plowing should they need to and the road back and forth to the home will be cleared. GUEST FEEDBACK/SUGGESTIONS We welcome feedback & suggestions. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, we invite you to write a review on VRBO or Home Away.

All beds will have sheets, pillowcases, and comforters or blankets/bedspreads. There will be hand towels in kitchen, bathroom(s), and washcloth/bath towel for each guest. A specific amount of time is needed to clean each vacation home before next guest arrival.

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
The location was unbelievable. You are within a 5 min walk of great restaurants, and downtown. The property manager was great and very responsive. Can't recommend this place enough.
Great house & great location!
It was great to be able to walk downtown. The house was everything we could ask for.
Traveled to CO for a family wedding. Great kitchen area and bathrooms. Ample closet space. Overall nice layout and great location.
House is cute and clean. Back patio area could be cleaned up with all the leaves (I vacuumed everyday due to the leaves). Bedroom at the top of the stairs could use a better mattress. But good location, walking distance to downtown. Right by a McDonald's, which was nice for quick breakfast or if we wanted just a drink. If you want a view of the mountains, I would recommend renting Manitou Springs. Overall experience was great
Great vacation rental!
Very impressed with communication with owner and manager. Great location within walking distance to downtown! Highly recommend!
We stayed here with our kids and dog as opposed to getting a couple of hotel rooms at The Antlers where the majority of wedding guests stayed. We loved the place! Plenty of room for a small "happy hour" we hosted for our wedding guests who made the trip from Kansas. The place was perfect for us and very well equipped with everything you need. Even though I rated this a little lower for location, the area appears to be in the process of gentrification and we had no issues with anyone in the neighborhood. One other little note, for those traveling with pets, we thought the backyard had a little fenced in area by looking at the pictures and it does not. That was my fault for not clarifying with the property manager. Overall, a great place for those looking for a place close to downtown!
