Ty and Lorrie were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Their home is beautiful, quiet and very clean, and out favorite part was the walking trails right behind their house. We wouldn't change a thing!

It is the perfect place to stay in Colorado and Springs and visit the area. The house is beautiful. The room is clean and cozy. The bathroom is private and brand new. We enjoyed taking our breakfast on the deck, with an amazing view over both a park and Colorado springs. Ty and Lorrie have the perfect distance, they are very interesting and open people if you want to chat. They also leave you all the space you need. The location of their house is very convenient. On the right side of the city for most interest points, Garces of the Gods, Old Colorado Springs City, etc... The neighborhood is residential and quiet, lots of beautiful houses, trees... And this park of course right in front of the house. We even had a reindeer right in the backyard one night. Thanks for the welcome guys, it was perfect.

Ty's place was exactly as described, and better. Our bedroom and bathroom were very clean, and we were provided with everything we needed for the stay. The view from the backyard was impeccable. The location was very convenient for us to get to places we wanted to go (10 mins drive from Garden of the Gods, and easy to hop on highway for other places). Ty and Lorrie were very nice and friendly, and gave us a lot of suggestions on local restaurants, bars and breweries. I definitely recommend Ty and Lorrie's place for anyone who would like to spend some time in Colorado Springs area!

Wow...our stay at Ty's place is the reason we consistently use Airbnb for our lodging needs when we travel. Communication was perfect and Ty was very personable/helpful in providing recommendations for restaurants and fun places to visit in the Colorado Springs area. Ty's home is in a very nice residential area and it borders directly on a large park with lots of hiking/running trails. It is centrally located, about 10-15 minutes to downtown, Broadmoor and Manitou Springs. We truly enjoyed returning to the quiet of this home after a day of visiting sites. Ty was very accommodating, setting aside space for our refrigerated items and providing a well equipped kitchen/dining area to enjoy preparing/eating our meals. Definitely a do-over on our next trip to Colorado Springs!!! Peter & Kathleen

Ty User ProfileTy is a superhost.

I am semi-retired after many, many years owning and running Compleat Games & Hobbies, a retail game and hobby store in Colorado Springs. I've recently returned to culinary school. Lorrie retired from working as an administrator for school district 11, and has opened her own local business, Who Gives a Scrap, a creative reuse center (you'll have to ask her what that means...). As we've hit our 50s, we've decided it's time to get out and see the world before our knees give out. We both love hiking, mountain biking, typical-tourist sight-seeing, cooking, and eating. Especially cooking and eating! We're currently on a break from traveling while Lorrie gets her business going. We spent 10 weeks in Southeast Asia last year, and the year before we took a two week backpacking trip through the Colorado Rockies along the Colorado Trail. We'd love to meet and hear about your adventures!
