Our blog explores what it is like to be a bungalow owner, and how to do-it-yourself if you're not really a do-it-yourself-er. We explore old bungalow living, report on bungalow events, and discuss craftsman-style bungalows -- without an *arts-and-crafts-style or die* attitude.

The Broadmoor Hotel, From 1871 to present, in Colorado Springs, Colorado
I love the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado was built in 1871. I went there in 2008 when my son was only a few months old, and it was his first time flying. My husband had business there, so my son and I came along. I scooted my son around the beautiful five star property in his stroller, it was delightful! I especially loved the Golden Bee Pub. It came to Broadmoor in 1901 as a collection of panels and fixtures from a 19th century English Pub. In the pub, there is a ragtime piano player that entertains guests with rousing sing alongs. The ale is even served in yards, interesting since Colorado Springs was once nicknamed "Little London."
