Our home is located in historic Old Colorado City - less than 1 mi. from downtown OCC, and less than 2 mi. from downtown Colorado Springs. Guest space is the upstairs loft, separated from the main living area by the staircase, half door and top panels. Queen size bed, double size futon, & small futon (best for children), private bathroom. Space could accommodate 4 adults, a child, and an infant/toddler, though this would be tight. Message me for special pricing if you have a larger party than 4.
Built in 1905 with many of the original features still in place, our home is cozy and comfortable. Since we have the space available, we love opening it to others whether friends, family, or Airbnb guests.
The upstairs guest space is spacious and comfortable. We just finished the project of closing off the space from the downstairs, with the half door and top paneling, as pictured. This gives guests added visual and auditory privacy. There is a full bathroom with a small shower. The desk has basic supplies to which you may use. Also upstairs is a coffee maker and refrigerator. There is a TV and DVD player upstairs (no cable). The kitchen and downstairs bedroom and bathroom are not available for guests. The living room is somewhat a shared space as we will sometimes be watching a show in the evening and guests will need to walk through in order to get in and out of the house. Guests are welcome to enjoy the front porch, with the beautiful view of Pikes Peak.
Please note: we have a ceiling fan and oscillating fan but no AC.
Interaction with guests
We live in our house full time, though we travel frequently. Most likely we will be in town, and are happy to socialize, make suggestions for food and attractions, and help with anything around the house. If we are out of town we will be available by phone and email to answer any questions and make sure to make your stay is as comfortable as possible. When we travel through airbnb, we often prefer to have private space and time and tend to keep to ourselves. So if that is your preference - know that you are 100% welcome and we won't make you feel like you have to socialize with us. We are friendly (who isn't in Colorado?) and we'll let you set the tone for how much contact you want with us.
Other things to note
We have a dog. She is friendly, though she will bark occasionally.
Because of this, we cannot accommodate your furry family members. Sorry, we know it's difficult to travel without them!
