The virus is on everyone's mind.. I just want to assure my guests that I clean the cottage myself, disinfect all surfaces, handles and doorknobs. I give the utmost care to being germ free, and provide hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap. That being said, here is the description:
My cottage is close to downtown, Garden of the Gods, road to Pikes Peak, Colorado College & I-25. I have a detailed list of great restaurants & things to do. You'll love the comfy queen bed, great coffee & cream!
Welcome to the Cozy Cottage! The cottage is the ideal locale for a couple wanting a getaway, for 2-3 friends traveling, a small family, for those adventuring, for those here on business, or for just relaxing by the cozy fire.
The cottage is in west Colorado Springs. It is minutes away from downtown and some of the finest brewpubs and eateries in the region, most within walking distance (1/2 to 1 mile). Plenty of coffee shops abound as well--locals and Starbucks. If you care to venture out into some of our world class trails and parks, the Garden of the Gods is a 10 minute drive for gorgeous hiking. The road that takes you to the summit of America's Mountain, Pikes Peak, is a 20 minute drive. Or you can venture further and take a scenic drive to the central mountains for skiing, climbing, hiking or sightseeing. Or explore Colorado Springs "Olympic City"! Inside the cottage are maps & guidebooks to guide you on one of the myriad of adventures in the Colorado Springs area. I've listed many of my favorite restaurants, parks, & open spaces in the House Information sheet inside the cottage.
The main house is a charming 1909 Victorian and the cottage was built in the 50s. It is behind the main house, separated by a patio, garden area, and a privacy fence. There is parking right next to the cottage. The interior was remodeled in 2016, and is whimsically decorated with hand-made artifacts and accessories, many from local artisans and photographers. It has vaulted ceilings and is painted in cheerful to muted tones. Although the kitchen is spacious, airy and open, there is little separation between the kitchen and sitting area and bedroom--more like a studio apartment. The stove is a four-burner with oven and broiler and the refrigerator is not quite full sized, but close. The kitchen is equipped with lots of pots and pans for baking and cooking, and there is a microwave and an electric kettle. Cabinets are well stocked with staples and snacks and French Roast coffee that can be brewed or served as pour-over with fresh half & half.
The queen bed has a down comforter-super cozy, and most of my guests remark about the comfort of the bed. There are two ceiling fans to help circulate the air in winter and summer, and there is a portable air conditioner in the summer. Adjacent to the bedroom is a small sitting area with a love seat-sized couch that easily converts into a twin bed--it has a memory foam mattress and is quite comfy. Also in the sitting area is an arm chair, floor lamp and end table--all are close to the cozy gas fireplace--great place to read or catch up on emails.
The bathroom has an adorable corner sink, and the glass-enclosed shower and floor are finished in ceramic tile. The shower is small, and it may be a tight squeeze for a very large person.
The wifi is excellent, and allows for streaming on the Smart TV. If you don't have a streaming account, you can always watch on your laptop.
A privacy fence surrounds the property, and there is a small but private outdoor area next to the cottage and within the enclosed back yard that has a quaint cast iron table and 2 chairs. Perfect for morning coffee or afternoon adult beverage!
Occasionally a group of bucks wander into the area (not in the yard). One of them has at least 6 points. A sight to see in an urban area! A nesting pair of Coopers Hawks visits the area from March-October. Really fun to hear and observe!
The cottage is three blocks from a walking path that leads to downtown, Colorado College, or destinations beyond. It is a perfect path for a casual walk.
The cottage is a welcoming space for all. I do not discriminate based on race, religion, ability, gender, or sexual orientation.
My hope is that you enjoy every part of your stay--from making breakfast in the spacious kitchen to relaxing near the fire.
The neighborhood was one of the first to be established in Colorado Springs.
The main house was built in 1909, as well as several other homes on the block.
