Colorado Springs is known as one of the top vacation spots in the USA for outdoor enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies. In the spring and summer, there are endless opportunities for hiking and biking, and water sports to enjoy. And in the winter, Colorado Springs transforms into a snowy winter wonderland with plenty of winter sports.
But even if you aren’t an outdoor enthusiast, less adventurous types can still enjoy the innovative food scene, visit Colorado Spring’s numerous art galleries and museums, and explore the historic district of Old Colorado City. Since it’s home to a few universities, the city also offers a wide range of nightlife, with many lively pubs, breweries, and wineries.
Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the area has so many natural wonders including Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, and the lesser-known Almagre Mountain. The Airbnbs found in Colorado Springs are just as unique as the city itself, with styles ranging from renovated Victorian farmhouses to sprawling luxury mountain cabins.
We’ve compiled a list of the 12 most incredible Colorado Springs Airbnbs to help ensure you spend a few nights in the ultimate Rocky Mountain retreat!
