I would love to give this 5 stars, but it needs a few amenities first. let me start off by saying its in a good location, quite neighborhood, 1/2hr away from everything we wanted to see. Colorado Springs is very spread out so plan on driving to the tourist fun activities. with that being said the house needs a few things. the kitchen is VERY sparse. No coffee maker, bowls, dish towels. There was only 4 plates, 3 forks and 2 cups. No broom to sweep up after ourselves. It would be great if the owner went to the Dollar store and spent about $20 to stock the kitchen. We chose a house as a home base so we could cook for ourselves, as opposed to a hotel where we would have had to eat out every meal. If you don't mind the limited kitchen items , then this place is great.
