About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath Cottage With Stunning Mountain Views.

Relax and renew in this tastefully renovated one bedroom cottage in the heart of Cheyenne Cañon. Located directly across the street from the trailhead to Stratton Open Space and hundreds of miles of popular hiking and mountain biking trails, this quiet 550 square foot cottage offers the comforts of a luxury hotel with the privacy and conveniences of home. Hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and lots of windows bring a warmth and coziness to this Cañon getaway. Enjoy an easy one block stroll to the neighborhood coffee shop or walk just a few blocks to the famed Broadmoor Hotel or Seven Falls.

Stay at home to create meals in the fully equipped kitchen, including a chef's stainless gas range and vent hood, quartz countertops, microwave, Keurig coffee maker and all of the basic necessities! A selection of complimentary coffee and teas are provided. Dine in a separate dining nook with access to a full selection of plates, bowls, flat wear and glass wear (including wine glasses).

A separate bedroom with a queen bed, luxury linens and a large closet is adjacent to the living room. The bright living room offers a fantastic view of the mountains and Will Rogers Shrine and the opportunity to see abundant wildlife, including deer, fox, interesting birds (and yes, an occasional bear!) A flat screen TV with Blu Ray and iPhone/CD player is hidden behind the armoire along with books, puzzles and cd's. Wifi is available.

The spa-like bathroom has a new clawfoot tub, radiant floor heat and is stocked with luxurious towels, a hairdryer, high quality soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. An apartment size washer/dryer, detergents, iron and board are available in the unit.

The cottage is located in the rear of the property, so parking is off-street, quiet and safe.

A Little History:

Bella Cottage was built in 1922 as a 'mother-in-law' cottage. The cottage is named in honor of a woman who lived in the home located directly in front of the cottage when it was built in 1910. Bella, a widow and dressmaker at Hibbard's Department Store in downtown Colorado Springs, was one of the Cañon's first residents. Cheyenne Cañon was a summer getaway for wealthy residents of Colorado Springs at the turn of the century. Concerts were held every Sunday at Stratton Park, located just down the street from Bella Cottage. Just how and why Bella ended up living on this property is a mystery. However, she embodied the spirit of 'turn-of-the-century' Colorado Springs and one can only imagine her riding her bicycle to work in the summers or taking the trolley (abandoned by 1930) from the station in Stratton Park to her job. Cheyenne Cañon was incredibly rich in history, long before Bella's time. Going back to the encampments of the Ute Indians, this area has attracted nature lovers for centuries. The beauty of the area is unsurpassed and is awaiting to be discovered by . . . YOU!

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY, INSIDE AND OUT. Thank you for respecting this policy. The cottage is designed specifically for two adult guests, so additional occupants are not allowed. Thank you for understanding! Recycling is encouraged - a bin is located in the front of the property.

About Karen Brandner

I am a Colorado Springs native and have worked in the sports industry for the past twenty years here. I purchased this property, which includes the main house in front of the cottage, in 2004. I personally manage the rentals and enjoy meeting my guests.

Why Karen Brandner chose Broadmoor

I am an avid runner, hiker and nature lover. The idea of living across the street from the trailhead to my favorite trails was a dream come true! I am passionate about this area, its people and its history.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the character of older homes and I immediately fell in love with this property. After renovating both homes, I am honored to share it with travelers who are searching for a tranquil and comfortable 'home away from home' in the Cañon.

Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was just perfect for us! It was decorated so cute and had lots of little touches that were so appreciated. The location was just perfect for all of the things we did too! (Pikes peak, Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Olympic Training Center, Breweries, Dragonman’s Museum) we also used the the night we got there and relaxed on the nice patio. I highly recommend Bella Cottage and hopefully we can make another trip back!

Bella Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Karen's cottage was great. The Cottage is exactly as reflected in Karen's pictures. The Cottage is nicely furnished, clean, comfortable, private and quiet. The bed was also extremely comfortable. The patio provided a nice private space to just read and relax. The Cottage has a great location and is near the Broodmoor Hotel, Stratton Open Space, Red Rock Canyon, Garden of the Gods, Helen Falls, Seven Falls and Downtown Colorado Springs. We had a great time and hope to return in the future.

Charming Cottage with all the necessities

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the charming cottage. It was very peaceful, yet conveniently located near several tourist attractions. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessities to prepare simple meals and included complimentary tea, coffee, & cookies. The bathroom toiletries were high quality & I enjoyed soaking in the claw foot tub. We really enjoyed sitting in the living room and watching the deer in the lot next door. Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay.

Bella Cottage is located in the heart of Cheyenne Canon (yes, Canon not Canyon :), with access to the trailhead for hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails just steps out the front door. Just a few blocks away is The Broadmoor Hotel, Seven Falls and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. A neighborhood coffee shop is just a short one-block stroll up the street. Downtown Colorado Springs is only a ten minute drive, with abundant restaurants and museums. Don't miss the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Seven Falls, Garden of the Gods and the Olympic Training Center!
