Family-friendly Colorado Springs vacation home in Old Colorado City, near Garden of the Gods
Stay in the charming West Side of Colorado Springs and enjoy everything that the city has to offer. The Bijou House is close to it all. Nestled in a quiet residential area, this spacious home has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large dining room, fully equipped kitchen, two separate fenced-in yards, and a beautiful front porch complete with a porch swing so that you can enjoy the mountain view and beautiful sunsets. For business or pleasure, nature lovers or city dwellers, there is a little something for everyone!

Watch the deer as they pass by the yard, walk a couple of blocks to the Saturday Farmers' Market, shop and dine in Old Colorado City- just a few minutes to walk to it all!

The Layout

The main level has three bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens) and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. The lower level has 2 bedrooms with queen-size beds and an air mattress to accommodate extra guests. Linens are provided.

The bathrooms are both located on the main level of the house. Both have full bathtubs with showers. Towels are provided.

The living room upstairs has a sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress for ultimate comfort.

Tuckered out from sightseeing? Head downstairs to enjoy a movie night or catch up on your favorite shows on the 50' television. There's a Blu-Ray player as well as a wide selection of movies if you can't find anything to watch in cable.

With cable channels, movies, board games and books to choose from for entertainment, you will not want for something to do while at the house.

Enjoy a hot or cold beverage with fresh mountain air on the covered front porch. Pass the day away in a porch swing while taking in the views of Cheyenne Mountain. The fenced backyard has a large table, umbrella and seating for an additional 8 people with a propane fire pit to enjoy a cozy fire on those chilly Colorado nights.

If you prefer to prepare your meals at home, cooking is a breeze in the fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, cookie sheets, a crockpot, wine glasses, and more. The large dining table easily seats 10 with an additional leaf that can be added and more chairs to accommodate a large crowd.

If you are traveling with children, the lower-level basement is stocked with toys, books, and games for all ages. There is also a high chair, pack and play, booster seat, bibs, and more.

Lastly, the location is perfect! Walk just two blocks to Colorado Avenue for shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, a park (Farmers' Market is held on Saturdays) and more. Hop in the car for a short 5-minute drive to visit and hike at Garden of the Gods, drive 5 minutes in the opposite direction and you will be in downtown Colorado Springs. The mountains, Manitou Springs, and more are just 10 minutes by car. The location couldn't be better.

The house has wired exterior security cameras as an added security feature. There is one wired camera in the mudroom that monitors two exterior entryways.

5/5 Excellent

Great location Comfortable space
Having two full bathrooms made getting an early start each day a breeze. The house was spacious with 5 beds (4 queen, 1king). There were several areas in the yard to relax and lots of space for parking. Close to many good restaurants and most importantly great access to the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak.
