This wooded mountain respite is a true gem! It is located a tad, by a small bridge that acts as a enchanted holiday portal, off of the main highway leading up to the central business & shopping area of Manitou Springs, easily gotten to by foot or free shuttle. It is just 5 minutes by car from the magnificent Garden... More

So I rarely ever give reviews but this place really is deserving of a review! The grounds of the B&B is the best I ever seen (for a B&B). There are little trails you can walk that wind around the property. You can tell by walking around the owner is an artist. If you're looking at getting Married I would... More

We stayed at the Blue Skies Inn for three nights, all of which were amazing. We stayed in the Morning Glory room, which has a separate "room" with a daybed for our teen, and our friends stayed in the Indian Rock art room. The owners are friendly, stop and visit with you, and will give you a tour of other... More

Owners, Sally and Mike were most hospitable! Enjoyed the stories about the property. Also, really loved breakfast delivered to our suite! We stayed in the Deep Blue room which was decorated in an ocean theme. The tiled art work was amazing! Very comfortable room. The gardens and trails were lovely. If it had not rained we would have hung out... More

These guys are great, the rooms are unique and clean, and the breakfast was enough to feed a small army platoon...it was also piping hot and delicious. And when they say it will be at your door at 0830, they mean exactly that. Couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend our 27th anniversary! Thanks again for making our... More

We are happy when a couple chooses *our* inn to celebrate a special day in their lives. Whether it is a honeymoon stay to begin a new life together or a night to mark years of enduring love, we enjoy providing the setting for our guests' celebration. After being innkeepers for almost twenty years, we could write a wonderful book... More

We won a two night stay at Blue Skies Inn and absolutely loved our stay. The room was very comfortable and well decorated. We were happy to find a nice selection of movies already in the room upon our arrival. Breakfast is amazing, hot and delivered to your door. And, we enjoyed a quiet evening in the hot tub. I...

We donated a two night stay at Blue Skies Inn to a Habitat for Humanity fund-raising event. It was delightful to see who the top bidder was for their "Outrageous Weekend!" prize. It's always fun to win the hearts of new guests, and we look forward to seeing Amanda again. More

Our first stay at Blue Skies was in 2011, and we have been going back every year for our anniversary. We live in the area and had passed the Blue Skies arch many times, and decided to give it a try. We could only spend one night, and it was a spur of the moment decision. Sally and Mike accommodated... More

Thanks for the lovely review - the best compliment is when our guests return again and again! We are happy that our guests discovered our historic downtown with its great one-of-a-kind shops. It's a short walk to many charming restaurants for lunch and dinner as well as numerous brew pubs. We're an arts and crafts community, too, so there are... More

My wife, Marcia, and I have enjoyed the Blue Skies Inn twice. The first time was about 8 years ago, and the second time was this October. Both trips were very satisfying, but the place just keeps getting better. Sally and Mike have developed the grounds and the walkways on the wild back side of the cottages masterfully, which makes...

We are passionate gardeners, and it is fun to show our latest project to returning guests. We enjoy building little bridges and walkways among our shady gardens, and it's even more fun to share those gardens with guests. We often find our guests enjoying breakfast by our waterfalls, listening to the birds and observing our wildlife. Thanks for returning! More

We stayed in the Dot Matrix room for 3 nights while visiting Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak area in a fun fall family vacation. My wife and kids (13 and 10) comfortably fit in the suite. Sally and Mike were very accommodating and the grounds are lovely. It's a great location. Breakfast was super yummy - especially the muffins. And... More

Our inn was built to be super sound-insulated, so we welcome families and anyone who wants some restful privacy. All of the rooms have a different decorative theme, so there is something for everyone. Our Dot Matrix suite is inspired by Africa, and it has lots of tiger stripes and leopard spots - sort of like standing in the middle... More

My son and I stayed for three days at the Blue Skies Inn and found Sally and Mike down to earth and wonderful people. The Indian Rock Artist 1 room was funky and so unique.

We really enjoy visiting with our guests and helping them find fun things to do that will interest them. We think of all of our guests as our new friends, and we even swapped gardening tips with this mom and son. We'll be exchanging email when our respective daffodils and tulips come up next Spring!
