In my short stay at Blue Skies, I was very happy with all the inn had to offer. The breakfast at our doorstep was amazing, fresh out of the oven, and delicious. The room was very lush and comfortable, with excellent ambiance and charm. can't wait to stay longer next time!

The best B&B in Manitou Springs, Blue Skies Inn is reminiscent of the old west, perched at the foot of Pike's Peak, custom Native American artwork by the owner throughout the suite (with awesome hand painted bathroom tiles), a quaint stream running thru the property with boutiques, art and restaurants just a stone's throw away, a bountiful breakfast basket delivered...

We were planning a trip to the Colorado Springs area and someone suggest we stay in Manitou Springs instead. I’m glad we did. This place was very nice. Clean, quaint rooms, beautiful grounds and well maintained hot tub. It’s a few blocks from town, but totally walkable. There’s a lovely trail down by the river which was better than walking... More

My son was recently married at the Blue Skies Inn. Sally, Mike, and their staff provided the perfect wedding day. I just love looking at the amazing photos Sally captured from the day and remembering the magic. This is also a great place to spend a few peaceful nights just to get away from it all.

We decided to hold our family reunion this year at a B&B in Manitou Springs, CO. We did our research and settled on the Blue Skies Inn - and this lovely B&B turned out to be a perfect choice for us. Our family isn't large (21 people, ranging in age from 3-76) and came in from Maryland, Southern California and... More

We came down from Denver for a couple of nights away for our anniversary. It was a quiet place with lots of beautiful trees and an enchanting garden. We had hot breakfast left at our door each morning, picnic-basket style, and did not have to interact with anyone, if that's what we wanted. We left our car and walked to... More

One of the most unique B&B experiences I've had. The property is beautiful and the rooms are so artistically done. The custom painting and tile work are amazing. We stayed in Midnight Woods. So restful. Huge shower! We walked into town for dinner. Mike was very cordial and helpful with dinner recommendations. The most unique thing about our stay was... More

After losing our husbands (2 brothers & their father) we 3 women decided to travel together for family visits and enjoyable outings. So we came down from Centennial (where one of us lives), meandering down Hwy 67 alongside the rolling South Platte and cruising into the active, historic Manitou Springs. Our reserved Dot Matrix suite at Blue Skies Inn was... More

Sally and Mike are very hospitable innkeepers! The land is beautifully landscaped, with lots of places to sit and simply enjoy nature, including the raccoon you can see during the day. The Midnight Skies suite was very comfortable and the breakfasts were great. And it is within walking distance to the Chamber of Commerce that will give you many suggestions... More
