We had a wonderful stay at Blue Skies. The room was great and the breakfast was delicious - especially the blueberry muffins! The grounds are beautiful. The cottages are surrounded by gardens and you are free to eat your breakfast in any location throughout the grounds. We can't wait to return!

Our suite was beautiful, the owners courteous, and the breakfast (delivered to our suite) was plentiful and fresh. The grounds are beautiful. Prices are a bit high, reflecting Manitou Springs and Pikes Peak tourist prices.

Blue Skies Inn just gets better and better every time I stay! I discovered Blue Skies Inn over 10 years ago, and have stayed many many times throughout the years. They never disappoint!

At the end of July, my mother celebrated her 90th birthday and our family a 14 year reunion at the Blue Skies Inn in beautiful Manitou Springs, Colorado. I am delighted to say that the family (all 20 members) found innkeepers Sally and Mike absolutely wonderful people. Without even asking, they opened up the restored Carriage House for our family...

This was our 3rd stay at Blue Skies Inn and although we didn't get to stay as long this time, it was a wonderful venue for our 10th anniversary. The first time we spent 6 days/nights in the Morning Glory Suite which we really enjoyed. The 2nd visit was 6 days/nights in the Sunset Suite which we really enjoyed as... More

Traveling from Boston to Denver to spend time with my adult daughter, we headed south to explore the Gardens of the Gods and were looking for a Bed and Breakfast to spend the night. We landed at the Blue Skies Inn and didn't want to leave. Situated within a pleasant walk from the quaint and quirky downtown of Manitou Springs,... More

Every room has a different theme. Every room has a different size. Thus, every room has a different price. Ultimately, I decided on a smaller cute room. The pictures matched the real life room. The description, however, said "separate tub and shower." There was only a shower. I was disappointed. Additionally, the window in the bathroom had been broken prior... More

Yes, every suite at Blue Skies Inn has a different theme and is hand painted by an artist, ranging from Southwest Native American to skies to flowers. However, every suite is the same size at 450 sq. ft. The size of a suite does not affect the price range. Each whimsical suite has a sitting room, a giant bedroom and... More

Unique place tastefully built and maintained buy a unique couple and beautifully integrated and served up with love and devotion. My daughter and I will remember our stay there always. The suites alone are worth the price. The breakfast was excellent and also unique.

We usually stay at Blue Skies at least once a year (sometimes more) and have done so for the last 7 years. It is located in quaint and historic Manitou Springs and is a pleasant 10 minute walk from downtown and several wonderful restaurants. Each room is beautifully themed and all have large showers for 2 and several also have... More

The owners are fantastic and work hard to insure your stay is top notch. The conviction they show concerning your enjoyment while there is priceless and rarely found. Mike and Sally, thank you for everything. You'll find no better place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We'll be going back annually.
