Family Fun and Romantic Stays at Blue Skies Inn Manitou Springs, Colorado
Nestled at the base of Pikes Peak, the inn is inspired by our historic 1872 Gothic Revival carriage house built by the city's founder. Ten quiet, spacious artist-painted suites are perfect for romantic stays, a family reunion or wedding at the inn.

Surrounding Area

Charming Manitou Springs is a small mountain town of only 2,500 acres, located in the foothills of Pikes Peak. Within a mile or two, you will find the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, the Pikes Peak Toll Highway, the fascinating Cave of the Winds, the Garden of the Gods - an amazing park full of grand sandstone formations, historic structures dating to the 1870's when the Wild West was very new, fun shops and hiking trails that vary from easy to challenging.

The inn is constructed as a Gothic Revival village with three structures holding ten individually decorated suites. At 450 sq. ft., each suite has a large bedroom, a sitting room, and a giant bathroom. A full, hot breakfast is served as room service, delivered to your suite to enjoy at your leisure. If you are visiting as a family, this lets your children have a stress-free morning. If visiting as a romantic couple, you can dine in your jammies, then catch a few more winks of sleep.

Map & Directions

We're in the "Heart of Colorado" - located within several miles of the Interstate.
From I-25, to Highway 24 west (4 miles) to Manitou Ave. Our roads are clear year round, so if your plane can land, you'll be able to reach us on well-kept, paved roads. We are in the midst of several military bases, so we are kept passable at all times. When the Denver Airport closes during a snowstorm, the Colorado Springs airport keeps on trucking!
