About Crystal Putnam

I grew up in Colorado Springs and have lived in Colorado nearly all my life. I feel like this area defines who I am. I enoy our great state while camping, riding ATVs, day trips to natural hot springs, picnics in the mountains, and just sitting on the patio with friends and family.

The Colorado Springs area has so many things to enjoy and I'm happy to suggest places to visit or help plan day trips.

Crystal Putnam purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Crystal Putnam chose East Colorado Springs

When I bought this property, I was glad to have the little cottage as an additional source of income in addition to the bigger house where I live.

Until a few years ago, my cottage was just a regular rental home, but now, I love hosting folks who are visiting here from all over the world. It brings me great joy to welcome guests to share this cozy cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is a private space which is nicely appointed with simple furnishings and a full size kitchen. I lived in the cottage for a few years and loved the warm, comfortable space.

This little cottage is in the backyard of the owner’s home with easy parking and a fenced yard

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely perfect for my girlfriend, our dog and myself for a long weekend. It was private, cozy, and not far from restaurants and bars, and only a short drive to trails on the mountains. The cottage was clean, the bed was comfy, the yard was amazing for the dog to roam freely in and out of the cottage, and the little porch was great to drink coffee on the front porch in the morning sun. We had the windows open the whole weekend and the neighborhood was mostly quiet making it really relaxing. It was so homey and we were bummed to have to pack up and leave once our stay was over. We would 100% stay here and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Colorado Springs.

Perfect Holiday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Olympian Cottage for a quiet retreat after the Holidays, and we got exactly that! The cottage is small, but very comfortable and all you need! The bed is AMAZING, the little extras Crystal added around the cottage were great, and the hot water pressure was fantastic (which is VERY important)! The fenced in yard was great for our 2 little dogs and the driveway gave us plenty of parking space. My only suggestion is to bring extra throw blankets because aside from the comforter on the bed, there isn’t much to cuddle up on the couch with. We would DEFINITELY recommend this cottage to anyone and everyone!

Clean cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Crystal was a great hostess & very accommodating! Cottage was clean & cozy with some toiletries provided & a few condiments in the fridge. It was nice to have a yard that was fences for our 2 small dogs. Our only disappointment was the wifi wasn't that strong. We brought our Roku stick and couldn't use it - it kept stopping to load... Streaming on our tablets wasn't any better. We could surf the net, send email etc... fine, just couldn't stream anything - it was too annoying.
