The space
~~Full sized windows in 4 out of 5 rooms, letting in lots of light and gorgeous views to the west.

~~This place is ADORABLE according to the feedback of 4 years worth of guests. I sure had fun designing and decorating it. And another frequent feedback is: "You've thought of everything!" which is good to hear, because I lie in bed at night thinking of everything, ha!

~~Tuft & Needle mattresses and always crisp clean linens. I also use extra mattress pads & pillow covers and wash them between every guest.

~~Your kitchenette has a full sized refrigerator, sink, microwave, dishes & cutlery, toaster, electric kettle and a high speed blender! Two ways to make coffee: pour over and a French press. I also provide the coffee/teas and a variety of the fixings for all my guests. Some snacks are stocked also.

~~No oven or stove but I do have a top rated dual electric hot plate and all necessary pots/pans and cookware essentials available for those making more of their own meals. This apt has it's own small Weber bbq & supplies stored under the table outside.

~~I welcome kiddos! The crib is a pack n' play with an extra mattress in it for comfort, complete with full linens. I will set it up for your arrival 😄 There is an Ikea highchair stored in the master bedroom closet. I also have fun toys, games & video movies for a full range of ages in the place. Camera baby monitor available upon request.

~~There is no central air conditioning in my house but the lower level stays quite cool in the summer -- and I do provide high quality fans. And unusually, in wintertime, this lower level has always been the toastiest part of the three story 1888 home!

Where you’ll be

Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States

I am in the neighborhood called "Roswell". We are just north -- across the tracks -- of the "Old North End" of big fine houses. We have smaller & eclectic/funky houses here, as it was originally a little railroad workers and miners town. Our local elementary school was recently repurposed into the Lincoln Center with, a 5 block walk away:

~Goat Patch Brewery.
~Cafe Red Point
~Nightingale Bread
~Building Three Coffee Bar/Roasters
~Crossfit SoCo
~Omtastic Yoga
~Pilates/Massage studio
~Lincoln Street Barbers
and coming soon also;
~Tailgate BBQ
~Mountain Valley Market.

One mile away there is a Safeway grocery store in a mini shopping center that includes a liquor store and other shops.

Less than 3 miles south is downtown Colorado Springs. I highly recommend the "Poor Richard's Complex" with a NY Style Pizza restaurant (and salads to die for), a separate Rico's cafe & wine bar, and then his book & gift store next to that!

Just 3 miles north there is a huge shopping area that includes a Chipotle, Noodles & Co., Trader Joe's, Costco, Lowes, SteinMart, Kohl's, Bonefish Grill, Kera Juice, Smashburger.......
On the way up Nevada Ave. to the above I highly recommend our local mexican place La Casita!!

I've been using airbnb myself while traveling since 2011 because I LOVE living like the locals to get a real sense of a place and I LOVE houses, architecture, old & modern buildings, unique/beautiful interiors, and cool gardens. I moved to Colorado Springs from Chicago to attend college and never left! Pikes Peak certainly holds some magic spell over me. I enjoy seeing my airbnb guests fall under her spell too : ) I'm a bit of an introvert and bookworm, and I enjoy writing, bike riding, gardening/landscaping, and traveling -- to the lake in Quebec that I grew up spending summers on (I'm a dual citizen of US & Canada), to cities incl Chicago, NYC, and Toronto, AND I have recently fallen in love with the Hawaiian Islands and hope to return and explore each one in turn! Airbnb suggests that I tell you my life motto, so here it is: "Trust God, Love People". My aim is to make progress in both as I go along! My top 4 values in life are LOVE ~~ LEARNING ~~ GRATITUDE ~~ HUMOR.

During your stay

I value my own privacy, so I am sensitive to yours, yet weather/season permitting, I will be onsite outside most days for at least some hours either watering & weeding existing gardens, mowing the lawn, or working as I continue to develop numerous projects on the 1/2 acre. I have plenty to do on all 4 sides of the house, so I can quietly move to an area where your party isn't chillaxing : ) I'm not a party crasher lol. Just a 60 year old woman who does all her own yard work!
Other than that, please msg or call or text me at anytime with any questions or requests, I am here to help make your stay the best possible!
