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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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!

Nice people friendly only problem was the futon was uncomfortable to sleep on

Response from Brandi:
Martin, I'm sorry to hear you did not sleep comfortably. To future guests: the queen mattress bed is very soft and we get great feedback on that; the futon is definitely firm. We hope this accommodates a wide variety of sleep preferences, but understand that is not always possible. We appreciate the feedback as we're always looking to improve the guest space. Thanks!

The place was definitely nice and cozy and super clean. They made sure we had everything we needed. Very lovely home. Super close to both, Garden of the Gods and the downtown area. Highly recommend!

My daughter & I spent a night in Brandi's loft space and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's extremely clean, quiet, and quite private. Brandi has done a fabulous job creating a real guest suite for families. It's pretty amazing how many could sleep comfortably and not feel crowded at all. There is no A/C in the home, but we stayed on a very warm day and slept very comfortably with the windows open and the fan. Do NOT let that worry you! The bed/linens/towels were great quality, and the provided toiletries were appreciated. We had a lovely and safe walk to and from the downtown area for dinner. We left before making coffee the next morning but a lovely set-up is provided. Her dog is very sweet and we heard no barking at night whatsoever. We would not hesitate to stay with Brandi again.

We felt welcome at our stay here. The home is quiet, cozy and secluded. But it is also near popular restaurants and shops. The loft was nice, secluded, and offered an amazing view. Even better, it smelled great every time we came in! The on street parking wasn't bad because the street was suprisingly slow for being 2 blocks off of the main drag.

Brandi's hospitality and the loft she offers are absolutely great!l! The space was exceptionally clean, cozy and comfortable, and we felt very safe in this quiet residential neighborhood. The space was furnished with thoughtful amenities i.e. a small refrigerator, coffee pot, and incidental bathroom supplies. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, quiet room!
