Colorado Springs, CO 80904
This one of a kind property is being offered for sale for the first time in over 34 years. The Timber Lodge has been operated as a motel during the warmer months and can remain a unique hospitality property. It can also be adapted to a myriad of other uses or redeveloped.
The property has excellent access and exposure. Fountain Creek borders the entire front (north) of the property, and 18 cabins (24 units) are situated on a 2.88 acre lot. The property also includes a 19th century caretaker's home that has been expanded over time. Cabins 1 - 26 were built in the 30s and 40s. Cabins 30 through 35 and the outdoor pool area were built in the 1950s.
From 2017 through 2019, major renovations were completed that transformed the roadway directly in front of the property (W. Colorado Avenue/ Manitou Avenue) to a "slow and social" people/bicycle friendly corridor, adding pedestrian lighting, sidewalks, bike lanes, crosswalks, curbs and gutters, underground utilities - all completed with pleasing aesthetics.
Property is located on the "Westside" of Colorado Springs, which acts as a gateway to the mountains and to the natural beauty that Colorado Springs is known for. This property is located within walking distance of the world famous Garden of the Gods Park - which has over 21 miles of trails- and Red Rock Open Spaces, both of which are popular for hiking, horseback riding, technical rock climbing and road / trail mountain biking. This property is also close to shops, restaurants, breweries and art galleries and is located between the historic shopping districts of Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. Often described as "a little bit of country in the middle of town" this property is located in close proximity to many area attractions, such as Pikes Peak America's Mountain, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds, The Flying W Ranch and many others, that are visited by the approximately 6 million visitors that come to Colorado Springs each year.( www.pikes-peak.com for area attractions information.)
