We are excited to be designated as Superhosts! Our goal is to make your stay with us an exceptional experience. We offer a 900 square foot spacious and private two-bedroom lower level (steps) suite with a full bathroom, living and dining areas. The media area has a flat screen TV and treadmill. The dining area has a game table, workstation, Keurig 2.0, toaster, microwave and a mini fridge/freezer. We stock the refrigerator with bottled water, milk, juice and English muffins.

El lugar

The Doanestead is located in a quiet neighborhood less than a 15-minute drive from downtown. Please read the Neighborhood section of our listing for details.

Airbnb’s listing program restricts the age category to 0-12 if we do not wish to host children. If you have children a little younger, about 7-12, please let us know. We’re not set up for babies and young children, but we do welcome children a bit younger than 12.

Your private suite is located in the lower level of the home (steps required), which is a partial basement with "garden level" windows in the bedrooms. Entry into the home is through a keypad on our garage, which takes you into our newly updated laundry room that you are welcome to use (supplies included). From there, your suite is just through part of the kitchen and downstairs. Our shared entrance is almost private - You will rarely run into us if we are at home, unless you want to!

Business Travel Ready (BTR)! All amenities you expect from those expensive hotels are available at The Doanestead: Netflix, Amazon Prime and local HD channels on the TV, super-fast wifi throughout the property (even in the backyard gazebo!), full-sized work desk, shampoo and conditioner, laundry facilities with supplies, hairdryer, iron and ironing board.

You’ll love your private suite because of the coziness and the quiet location. The suite entry door and bedroom doors are lockable. The large guest room is furnished with a king-sized latex bed, and the second bedroom with a Kingsdown queen bed. A private full bath is located between the bedrooms. A futon is available in the media room as well as a regular reclinable couch, so you can put your feet up after a long day of sightseeing and hiking!

We do not have pets, so no worries about possible allergies.

Disponible para huéspedes

The backyard has a Weber charcoal BBQ grill and a large covered gazebo for morning coffee and evening beverages. Additionally, you are welcome to lounge on the large front patio that faces west with a view of the famous Pikes Peak and Cheyenne Mountain (NORAD).

Although we do not allow smoking in our home, patio or gazebo, if you are a light smoker, let us know. We have an area we can set up for you that has the best view of Pikes Peak!

Your suite has a toaster, mini-fridge, microwave and Keurig 2.0 with regular, flavored and decaf K-cups provided. If you are coffee "snobs" like we are, feel free to bring your favorite K-cups (2.0)! We stock the fridge with water, juice and milk. Additionally, we have English muffins, butter and jelly to help get you started in the morning.

We also invite you to relax and decompress in our private Infrared Sauna after a long day of hiking and touring our beautiful city!

Atención a los huéspedes

We live on the premises and are available as needed. We hope to be able to greet each guest upon arrival; however, if we aren’t able to be there when you arrive, we will leave a welcome note to help you get settled. We can catch up later on during your stay, but we try to allow you maximum privacy. We will always be available via text or a call.

On the morning of your check-in, you will be sent your keypad entry code to our guest entrance. Self check-in is available.

Safety notes: The first aid kit is located under the bathroom sink and fire extinguisher is next to the coffee station.

Otros aspectos destacables

Please park on the left side of the house.

We will have snacks available when you arrive. If you have any food allergies or restrictions, please let us know ahead of time so we can adjust accordingly. If you are experiencing a delay in your check in time, please contact us to make arrangements.

Colorado offers the microbrew enthusiasts a lot of choices of great Rocky Mountain brews, but beware! Our Blue laws are a bit antiquated...all beer sold in grocery stores is 3.2% alcohol. Only liquor stores sell full strength beer. Cheers liquor is about 5 minutes south on Circle Dr., and Powers Liquors is off of Powers Blvd. and Palmer Park Blvd. (no city tax).

Manitou Springs is a highly recommended quaint town to visit while you are here, but parking comes at a premium. Ask us about the free parking and shuttle just on the outskirts of town and you'll save a ton of parking fees...or fines! The shuttle will take you all the way to the famous Incline near the Cog station or drop you anywhere between the parking lot and the Incline. They will ticket illegally parked cars and the fines are not cheap. If you can find a parking space on Ruxton Ave near the Cog Train depot, it will cost you $10 an hour!

Please help us maintain our pristine cleanliness in the suite and only consume food and snacks in the media room and kitchenette area and not in the bedrooms.

Our stay at the "Doanstead" was absolutely perfect. This was the first time we used Airbnb and we were not really sure what to expect. Michael and Gaye were very sweet and accommodating and exceeded our expectations. The attention to every little detail was so well thought out including; coffee/tea station, mini fridge stocked with water, juice, milk, English muffins as well as other snacks. We enjoyed having early morning coffee on the beautiful patio area where we could watch the hummingbirds and other birds stop by for breakfast. We were visiting our son at the Air Force Academy for Parents Weekend. Our son stayed with us for the weekend and we all felt like we were staying at a relative's house. It was so much better than a hotel room. We would highly recommend the Doanestead and plan on returning next year.

This was our first AirBnB experience. Wow! We could not have been happier. Michael and Gaye had everything covered. And we do mean everything. They have a lovely space for guests in their home. Quiet neighborhood. Relaxing outdoor settings, both front and back. Very comfortable beds. Easy access. Off street parking. They helped us with valuable info on accomplishing our goals for the trip. Thank you Gaye and Michael. We enjoyed your home and our conversations. Hope to see you again soon. Jane and Robert

You won't be disappointed with this space and the hospitality you will receive from Michael and Gaye!! So spacious and comfortable, beautiful area out back to enjoy (weather did not cooperate with us but we got to use it some) Great sauna and robes...plenty of room in the 2 bedrooms and nice area to watch TV> Lots of guide books and menus for local attractions. How-to pages for almost everything in the house!! Chocolates, chips, coffee, OJ and milk...they really thought of everything. And a nice tour of the house and space at check in. You will be 100% satisfied. We are a family of 4 and had plenty of room to unwind and get ready to go out.

The hosts are very helpful and the place is very clean. The only thing I would say is it's the basement floor. So it's a bit dark, although expected.

Respuesta de Michael & Gaye:
Thanks for your feedback, Michelle! We recognize that the Doanestead is mostly basement level, although the master bedroom is "garden level," with plenty of natural light. To help mitigate the basement feel, we installed LED lighting in the dining area, so it's quite well-lit. We left lower-level lighting in the TV area because generally people don't want a lot of light while trying to watch TV.

My family and I were new to using airbnb, and can say that Michael and Gaye of the Doanestead have given us the greatest experience!  There was great communication from the moment we booked as well as throughout our stay.  Micheal and Gaye had great suggestions and tips that made our vacation special and one to remember!  Michael and Gaye provided the most immaculate, comfortable, and welcoming accomodations, they truly excel down to the smallest details (bathrobes, board games, movies, books, chocolate, coffee, tea, juice, crumpets and scones need I say more)!  We frequently found ourselves referencing the Doanestead as "home" when returning for the evening.  Our kids are also big fans of the Doanestead!  They loved everything including the photos (Michael and Gaye are gifted photographers)!  In fact the girls are already planning our next trip to Colorado and you can be sure that they have made it contingent upon a stay at the Doanestead!  (Michael and Gaye were so good to them!) We wholeheartedly agree with the kids and we will be planning our next trip around the availability of the Doanestead and looking forward to seeing Michael and Gaye again for sure!
