About Fleur Kaiser
I moved here from New York in 2001, married and bought a house. My folks came to visit a few years layer and fell in love with the relaxed atmosphere of Cañon City, Colorado and decided to buy a house for future visits and hopefully encourage the rest of the family to visit.
Fleur Kaiser purchased this House in 2008
Why Fleur Kaiser chose Cañon City
Having always loved old houses, they chose this old stone house built in 1902 that was completely gutted. Then they went back to NY... my husband and I were left with the task of renovation! For four years, we rebuilt this amazing house and poured as much love as possible into it! It was QUITE the TASK!!! Finally we are ready to share this amazing home with others who will also fall in love with the area and hopefully provide a place for you and your family to return to year after year as well.
What makes this House unique
During the rebuilding, we realized that this house was special indeed... EVERYTHING had to be custom built... and I mean everything! The framing, door hanging, sheet rocking, mudding, tile laying, and trim work; you will notice every unique detail in this house. What could be salvaged and refinished was, despite the hours of labor put in to refinishing that old piece of barnwood turned into beautiful wood trim for the doorway! This old house in a renewed gem! You will experience this too, at the first step into the house when you notice the 10 foot ceilings, with 6 foot windows surrounded by gorgeous stained trim that has been collected from around the country from different antique stores.

We enjoyed our stay at the Whipple House. It offered so many amenities, was very comfortable and our four-legged friends had a great time, too! The owner was very accommodating. This is our second stay at the property and we certainly plan to come again.
Unique, Rustic Property!
This house was a great choice for our mother - daughter weekend away. The owner is very responsive and has provided nearly everything needed for a stay away. The house uniquely backs up to the high school so we could hear the band practice on Monday morning and access to sight seeing and restaurants was great! The small staircase to the upper floor proved to be a challenge for my aunt that has knee problems but not a negative to the property just a thought for us to keep in mind for future bookings. Fortunately the bedroom downstairs provided her with what she needed.
We enjoyed staying at this charming home close to the Holy Cross Wine Festival! Fleur was attentive and welcoming. The home was clean and the kitchen well stocked with items you might need. We hope to stay next year for the same festival.
Charming old house
What a neat old house and perfect location for Royal Gorge visit. Canon City itself was quaint, friendly, old fashioned. Loved the old architecture in the house and SO well furnished and appointed. Came back after spending day at Gorge and there were three bucks standing in the yard, grazing. Walked around driveway while we unloaded, feet away. Very cool. Highly recommend, especially if you like the vintage, homey feel.
unique comfortable historic styled home
Enjoyed returning from days events to
Stone House. Well equipped and any concerns or questions were answered promptly, our group totally enjoyed this stay.
Everything was clean, the house enchanting. There was plenty of sleeping space, we enjoyed the outside patio as well. Great experience! Thank you!
In the heart of the Royal Gorge Region, this is a prime location to take part in all the activities in the Southern Colorado Region. We are located 10 minutes away from the Royal Gorge Bridge, the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, the Arkansas River which is the most commercially rafted river in the nation, and the top awarded winery in the state of Colorado, The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey. Day trips can be made to all the surrounding areas that include Pikes Peak and the cog railway, Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and Pueblo Reservoir without having to feel the hustle and bustle of those cities. Cañon City has a much more relaxed atmosphere than some of the neighboring cities, and we pride ourselves on the friendly locals!
