Built in 1914. Your stay in the cottage helps make its rescue possible. View of cottonwood trees, front range Mountains and distant Pikes Peak. 1800's wood and coal cook stove /heating now has triple wall chimney and new cap so it is safer than it has been for the last 100 years. Sofa couch can be comfortably slept on as is or folded out into a double bed. Attic loft (which must be booked separately) is accessed by ladder which guest must be willing and able to climb ladder and fit through small window. Large elm & cottonwood trees nearby. Raccoon, white tailed deer, Great Horned Owls, Great Blue Heron, English doves, frogs, bears and bobcats have been seen recently nearby. Parking is very close and free. 20 min to downtown Colorado Springs but country living. Small refrigerator, microwave and electric heater have been added for convenience of guests. Toaster oven is in the drawers below the refrigerator for use when needed. The attic loft has a separate entrance and is not tall enough to stand but has a very comfortable queen air mattress. Near a creek for short hikes and adventures on "Huck Fin Island" by yourself. Primitive bathroom chamber pot. Use of bathroom moments away in the main Farmstead house with shower upstairs in the farmstead main house that can be used when arrangements are made. By special request and additional fee you can include the loft if available (which has a separate entrance from an outside ladder) as your bedroom or to just keep the cottage private and all to yourself.

Servicios y zonas comunes
Guest may use cooking equipment if requested. Arrangements can be made to use shared bathrooms and shower in the main house next door. Loft area that must be booked separately or addtionaly by request when available is now usable as an attic room accessible by ladder and advance notice a queen, double or single air mattress bed can be made a availabe that can be adjusted for firmness. We have a sofa couch in the downstairs area. It pulls out into a double bed that could be slept on. There is a thin mattress that has been used by guest with extra posturpedic pad added in fall of 2017. Also an airmatress of queen or single size could be added for comfort or for the third guest. We recommend just one or two people for your space comfort. Food is to be kept in small refrigerator or metal containers.

Cottage in being rescued. It has been greatly improved by the funds and labor guest have provided. The condition at this point is greatly improved from the before photos shown. There is no bathroom in the cottage at this time but a small one is planned for the future. In the meanwhile an old fashioned commode (porcelain chamber pot) is in the closet. Camping like commode (old porta potty) can be provided but it takes up most of the space in the closet. Showers can be arranged for in the main house.
Ceiling plaster has been replaced with drywall and insulation above it as of September, 2016. Trim has been added and replaced around windows and doors , stove pipe is new and useful as of spring 2017. We have a dog and an outdoor/garage/barn/cat. The attic loft is booked separately and is only accessible by ladder from the outside. We still only recommend that one guest stay for long periods of time but two have stayed happily here for several nights as you can see in the reviews. We do have a child pack and play and could squeeze in a young child or use an additional available double air mattress or camping pad to have a younger child on the floor. We have had up to five people in the cottage and loft for a short time but suggest 1-3 people. Thanks for considering a stay with us which helps rescue the cottage and allows me to spend more time with my grandkids. We are not 420 friendly and do not allow smoking of any kind in the cottage. We have had difficulties with people who used marijuana in various forms forgetting safety precautions with the old house and stove. We also do not allow alcohol on the premises unless by special permission for a special occasion or for cooking.

Fountain, Colorado, Estados Unidos

Distant view of Pikes Peak out back. Picnics by the creek are possinle. A small island in the creek to explore. Large cotton wood and elm trees. Day trips to the Garden of the Gods, Great Sand Dunes, Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak & Ghost towns like St Elmo and Tin Cup are possible. Denver and big city attractions are just 1.5 hour away. Skiing overnights can be arranged from three to 5 hours away (additional cost to be paid by those going skiing). Aspen is about five hours from the cottage. Durango and Silverton area is about six hours away. Hiking & biking are possible near or far. Cottage is on a route that Olympic bike riders use for training. Simpich Marionette Theater is of course highly recommended by us. It is a world class performance put on by David Simpich who was twice chosen as the International Puppeteer of the year. You can find out more about it on by searching for Simpich on websites. Cokes Diner is a locally owned fifties restaurant that we enjoy eating at with fifties atmosphere. They are building a housing development across the street so come while you can still see what is left of the old alfalfa pasture. Fountain has several parks and walkways to visit. There is an old train caboose in one of them. Crested Butte and Ouray are some our favorite destinations in Colorado. The following are also nearby attractions:
Olympic training center
Wolf Rescue Mission
Air Force Academy
Cheyenne Mountai Zoo
Botanical gardens
Casa Bonita Restaurant in Denver comes complete with cliff divers and a chance to play in the band.

Come, visit the beautiful Colorado mountains, and let your mind enjoy a trip back in time with the stories, results and photos of those who homesteaded here. Shady Grove is the place to find a bit of nostalgia whether you are here for business or pleasure. We have several rooming options for you. We offer short and long-term residence. Looking for a private vacation? The home may be booked for the price of seven guests. The beautifully decorated master bedroom within the house is available rarely through special request. The upstairs rooms and downstairs couch can be rented separately or together.   Laundry and kitchen are accessible with room bookings sometimes. The majority of the house is available when you chose one room for one person.  The quaint 1914 homestead cottage is also offered. This is the homestead of the first family while Shady Grove was being built. There is parking for campers without hook-ups. We can accommodate places to park a car or truck if you want to pull off in a safe area to sleep or park a big rig and travel with a smaller vehicle into the Colorado Mountains. We offer unique items not listed in the boxes that Airbnb offer. Please contact me if you have any questions. I am aspiring to be a stay at home Grand Mama through serving guests through Airbnb. My husband and I are part of the Simpich Character Doll family.  The artwork my husband and I helped to create over the years will be on display. We love music! My husband plays banjo, guitar and harmonica and I play the gut bucket bass. We have played professionally as the Cherry Creek Pickers. With a little encouragement, we might share some special music for you or bring your instrument and join us.  We enjoyed being wranglers and musicians at the Lost Valley Dude Ranch and the Singing Cowboy Dude Ranch in Buena Vista. We have fixed up several old houses in the Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek area. My husband loves trains and has all kinds of information in his head and in books about local historic trains. He also loves Jeeping especially in 1940 jeeps that he rescues. Airbnb experiences are not officially on our listings yet. We like the idea and have tried to fit a Simpich Jeeping experience into an Airbnb box. We took one couple to their wedding at the Broadmoor in an 1950 era Jeep Station Wagon. Help us design a trip and adventure experience that works for you. We took a couple from France to dinner in a 1940's jeep. We also took them to Buena Vista and mountain sights near there. We would like to consider creating a special experience designed to meet your needs. Recently enjoyed horseback riding near Silverton, Ouray area via Action Adventure Rides and Jeeping into the Maroon Bells and around Aspen with a guest from Switzerland and the new found privilege of our senior Golden Pass to drive there before sunrise and after sunset (before 8 a.m. and after 5p.m. actually) . We have many adventuresome stories to share with you. We have traveled around Colorado all of our lives. My motto for living is to enjoy life to its fullest. We hope you will experience that while staying at Shady Grove or anywhere on this State Historical Farmstead . We use some of the funds from host stay to keep and improve this State Historical Farmstead (now ready for National Historic Registry since thanks to guests, a hail storm and insurance the wooden siding underneath has been rescued!) A small portion of your funds might also helps us to enlarge the farmstead garden project as we are now trying to plant something in honor of each guest that comes to stay so that it will be a farm/garden that others can enjoy in the future. We look forward to meeting your needs as you begin your adventure in picturesque Colorado. Our favorite destinations are to be with our kids and grand kids and that has recently taken us to Canada, Ouray, CO, Crystal, CO and the Denver Museum of Science and Natural History. We love coming home here! Favorite foods: Cookstove stew and biscuits. Chick-fil-A super foods and chicken. Homemade oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies with ice cream and hot fudge. Fargos Pizza is a local favorite. Our newest favorite food is the food a guest brings us from his work at Carlos Miguel's. They have great fresh made guacamole there also with fresh lime, cilantro, tomatoes and hot peppers and onions if you like but we like it without those. People say it is like coming home or going to Grandmama's house to come stay with us.
