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.

Spacious and beautifully decorated!
Great location to access hiking at Garden of the Gods. Hosts were helpful but gave privacy. Beautiful decor
Very nice place
My wife and I fell in love with Estes Park as we’ve been going there every anniversary. We decided to stay in Manitou Springs at this residence and was very pleasant. Garden of the Gods Park is within walking distance and we spent 1/2 day there hiking. The owners are very nice people and we may stay there again in the future. The only issue that I have is that the house is attached to the owners house. I guess it’s like staying at a condo or apartment where you can here people next door but it was not a problem. I guess I’ve been spoiled staying in private cabins. I still recommend staying here.
Perfect spot! It had everything I needed. Loved the views and the close walk to Garden of the Gods.
It was quiet peaceful and relaxing
Luke and Debbie
Were very friendly
Luke mapped out a beautiful hike for us thru garden of the gods
Debbie made us some delisous soup both were there if needed yet left us our privacy
Comfortable and well kept
I’d do it again and plan to
Beautiful rental, perfect location
We loved the rental! It was cozy, well provisioned and very homey. The location was perfect, just a 10min hike to the garden of the gods and a 10.00 uber to downtown. Couldn't ask for a better place, or better hosts. The hot tub was amazing.
Perfect location! Great accommodations!
Such a great location, 5 minute walk to the cool Garden of the Gods. Close to Pikes Peak. The house was very nice and cozy. Nice touch with putting snacks out for us! Hot tub was relaxing after sight seeing all day. Didn’t get to meet the owners, but thank you for sharing your home with us!
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.
