More information

The space

We call our place The Keys because of the piano key bar that divides the full-service kitchen and the billiard room. The billiard room is flanked by two open living rooms, each with its own large screen TV.

With the newly renovated condo's location on the 2nd floor of a building in the heart of historic Old Colorado City (OCC), you'll also feel like you have The Keys to this quaint "Americana of the Rockies" town, which was the capital of Colorado when it was just a U.S. Territory. OCC is just minutes to the Pike's Peak area's most popular attractions.

Private rooms off the common area have comfy, high-quality queen beds and ample closet storage space for your bags and personal effects.

A queen sleeper sofa if the South living room is great for the kids, and the room is also outfitted with a gaming console. The West living room has a full, tilt-back couch and a smart TV with Hulu and Netflix.

The cozy, uplifted bathrooms have posh towels and all the accoutrements you need when traveling light.

Guest access

You'll have The Keys all to yourself, with access to all spaces.

Interaction with guests

Chris and Jillian Dwyer, who are the owners of the small, family-oriented business (The White Yarrow, LLC) that operates The Keys, live in a "Homestead BnB" (yes, chickens, bees, vegetables and vacation rentals!) in downtown Manitou Springs, a few miles West of The Keys. They are available by text or phone during your stay and will only visit if you have need of their assistance, though they welcome visitors to their Manitou Homestead, and can at times offer free parking to The Keys' guests visiting Manitou Springs.

Other things to note

Parking: Free, private parking exists on site for a single vehicle, and additional free public parking is a few buildings East down the alley.

Upon arriving in the heart of old Colorado Springs, which is charming, and we were met by Christopher, who let us in. The apartment was clean and adorable. We enjoyed playing games, playing pool and sleeping in the really soft beds. The apartment is so close to so many fantastic sites; Red Rocks Open Space, Garden of the Gods, and Pike’s Peak. Walking around downtown was nice due to cute shops and great restaurants. We had a few hiccups while staying but Christopher was quick to respond and everything was resolved. If you are planning to stay in the area, definitely take a look at the Keys.


Nice place to stay. Great local restaurants and shops. Close to all the surrounding attractions. Just a bit loud at night since it is located on the Main Street


The Keys was perfect for our two night stay. Great location in Old Colorado city and walkable distances to many restaurants, pubs and shops. Communication with Chris was great. We would definitely stay here again!


Great Place! Close to restaurants, shops and entertainment.


We had a wonderful stay at The Keys. Our family of five with kids ages 4, 6, and 9 had plenty of space and slept very comfortably. We loved how close we were to Pikes Peak, Garden of The Gods and all the major attractions. The parking was easy and coming and going a breeze. Would recommend The Keys to anyone traveling to Colorado Springs!


Great place to stay! Thank you Christopher!!


The Keys is equivalent to staying in a five diamond/star hotel plus it offers more creative charm and character. The floor plan layout was very functional with lots of room. The amenities were super. The location is in a hip area close to great shopping and authentic dining. The host is very responsive and appreciates design. Highly recommend!


The Keys @ Pikes Peak is a super cute, conveniently located apartment with comfortable beds and everything you might need in the kitchen. It’s within walking distance to amazing restaurants and short drives to awesome attractions. In addition, the hosts were quick to respond. I highly recommend The Keys @ Pikes Peak.


Great location for Old Colorado Town shops and restaurants. Also very handy for all west side Colorado Springs tourist sites. Space is very unique and well appointed for up to 4 - 6 people. Was very pleased with our stay.


Everything expected and accurate plus some! Pictures do good justice of the place. Great walking area to shops and restaurants. Very easy drive to the beauty of the surrounding area. Would definitely recommend!


The location and simple little details to make this place feel comfortable and homey is what made this a top notch stay for our family.


The Keys is a lovely place. Our family had a great time there and would recommend it to couples and families.


This place was perfect for our family of five, plenty of space. The location is right in the middle of everything so you can pretty much walk anywhere, and there are quite a few shops and restaurants worth trying out. Chris was quick to respond to the couple of questions we had when we first got there, so that was much appreciated. We will definitely go back!!


Christopher was very responsive and we had a great time.


Beautiful apartment in a fun location in the heart of historic Colorado City. Beds were comfy and the towels were plush. Very large and was very comfortable for our 4 person group. Chris was very responsive. We highly recommend this spot.


Great central spot. Tons of activity close by. Fun apartment.


Great place! Came in for a guys weekend, perfect spot regarding bars, restaurants, etc. Small parking spot, for a super duty F250, but we made it work. Awesome time.


Ask questions on prices n cleaning fees


Great location, so close to everything


Enjoyed the place and Chris was always available for the questions I had. Overall a great place to stay.


Location is great walking distance of great shopping, craft beers, brunch, and dinner. The house layout is perfect for 2 couples. The keys bar was perfect for playing games. Kitchen fully stocked with all you need to cook. The wine was also a nice surprise and the price was average. The convenance was the best. The beds where very comfortable with great sheets. The bath towels fluffy and white. Everything about this place was a great experience.
