The Old Town GuestHouse was newly built in 1997 as a Colorado Springs bed and breakfast. The three story brick building is in perfect harmony with the 1859 period construction of the historic Old Colorado City.
The GuestHouse is located on the site of the 1892 city hall, fire station and jail which was surrounded by saloons, gambling parlors and brothels. Ongoing restoration of Old Colorado City has enhanced its beauty without diminishing its charm.
The streetscape that greets you as you walk out the front door of the inn...
Old Colorado City was founded in 1859 as a "Pikes Peak or Bust" gold rush town. It was envisioned as a mining supply hub for the new gold mines in South Park, Blue River, and Pikes Peak. In 1861, it was briefly named as the capital of the new Colorado territory. Later annexed by Colorado Springs, this national historic district today contains numerous shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. Today the GuestHouse stands at the gateway to Old Colorado City, the "heartbeat of Colorado Springs."

When it comes to comfort and relaxation as you sleep, nothing can beat waterbeds. Aside from the comfort it provides, technology has also added to its quality value making it possible to control temperature and now they come with supportive frames making water beds come to the top class when it comes to purchasing beds.
Most people do not purchase waterbeds for comfort alone but they are also being bought due to the medical benefits that they can get when they use them.
Waterbeds are said to provide good back support which is a good help when it comes to maintaining your posture. It is also said that sleeping in a water bed reduces the chance of having lower back pain.
Since the waterbed does not accumulate dust or skin particles, water beds are recommended for those who have asthma and allergies to lessen the risks of an attack taking place. Waterbeds are very clean.
Water beds are available in different sizes and weight. The normal weight of a water bed comes in the range of 90 kg to 180 kg. The water beds also vary in depth and stability. Water beds come in the same sizes as normal beds. The water filled mattress can come in a depth of 2 inches for topper mattresses and 9 inches for full depth beds. If you want to be really comfortable then you should get a large sized waterbed.
Waterbeds are durable. In fact they can last for 10 to 15 years depending on how you use your water bed. The manufacturer will do the installing for you so you do not have to worry about messing up the process and leaking your bedroom. You can also install the mattress yourself but you have to make sure that you follow carefully the instructions of the manufacturer.
You spend a lot of time in bed so it is important to have a bed of good quality. As long as you are comfortable, you will surely get a good night’s sleep.
