Imagine coming upon this enchanting storybook cottage as you traverse up a narrow lane in a picturesque mountain town. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to visit this little salmon colored cottage in Manitou Springs, Colorado.

Thank you to the owners for allowing me to feature Dream Gables on my website.
