Blue Skies Inn is fantastic! My husband and I generally do not like to stay in B and B's due to the lack of privacy and small rooms. We are now completely spoiled and don't think we will ever find accommodations that can live up to this standard. We arrived and were taken care of immediately with warm and professional... More

We counted this favorite couple's stays recently - twelve visits to our inn since 2007! We love them as much as they love staying here. It was fun to find Francine quietly crocheting by the waterfall one Autumn afternoon, and she gave us the exquisite doilie that she had created when she went home. We always enjoy trading stories about... More

From the moment I contacted Sally (Innkeeper) at Blue Skies I knew we made the right choice. She was extremely helpful in assisting me in choosing the right rooms for our family reunion. She carefully explained all the amenities and the surrounding area. She made suggestions on additional activities and restaurants which allowed us to secure tickets well ahead of... More

Family reunions are so much fun for us! As a gift, we collect the names of every family member ahead of time so that we can order a special cake that displays a family tree with everyone's name on it. We are well-acquainted with area activities so plans can be made to suit every age level and interest. Almost every... More

Fantastic bed and breakfast! My boyfriend and I stayed here last April We absolutely loved it..Sally is an artist and all the rooms are beautifully decorated. They drop your breakfast off to you every morning in a basket at your doorstep..how adorable is that? You can choose to either have it inside, or outside. We sat in part of their... More

As an innkeeper, it's very rewarding to hear about our guests' happy vacations here. One of the nicest compliments is when a guest stays extra nights - we know that we are doing our jobs well when that happens. Repeat guests have the privilege of choosing their favorite muffins for breakfast, and there are a dozen choices. You'll find melted... More

The ONLY reason I'm not giving them five stars is that the bed was a little hard. But this is the most romantic, beautiful getaway we've ever had. We will most certainly be back. The "Secret Garden" is so special and the rooms lack for nothing in detail. The breakfast is delicious and hot and you can either eat it... More

We are sorry that we "lost a star" in a review due to a bed. We like to fine tune our guests' sleeping experience, so give us a head's up if you need an extra memory foam layer for your mattress. We'll have the bed custom-made for you when you arrive! More

My wife and I just happened upon the Blue Skies Inn while looking at b and b's for a weekend getaway. We couldn't have found a better place. The accommodations were to notch from the privacy, cleanliness and comfort of our room, the delicious breakfast delivered to us each morning, to the beautiful property. Mike and Sally take such pride... More

We enjoy meeting the children of our guests. Many children accompany their parents on family trips that follow romantic stays. Our inn is kid-friendly from the decor of several fantastical suites to what we can serve to please those little palates at breakfast. Over our ninteen years as innkeepers, we have followed guest children all the way to adulthood. Let... More

If you love personality and attention to detail, then you will love this spot! Immaculately clean and set up for comfort and relaxation. A convenient walk to the downtown strip and nestled back off the street to bring a secluded and quaint feel...the homemade muffins were delicious and everything was delivered to the room so no need for awkward morning...

We have always served our full hot breakfast as "room service", delivered to each suite's door in a big picnic basket. Sometimes our guests will take the basket to the Garden of the Gods or a nearby park - enjoy it wherever you wish. Every suite has an attached sitting room for enjoying breakfast for dining as a family or... More

We had the pleasure of having our wedding at Blue Skies Inn, and it was absolutely perfect! Sally is the most amazing and capable wedding planner, and everything was executed perfectly. As the bride I was blissfully unaware of all the behind the scenes work, and left to only notice that everything was going exactly as planned! The back gardens... More

We discovered that our gardens are perfect for weddings, and we have designed an all-inclusive package that includes officiant, flowers, cake and photography. This morning, a... More

We stayed in the Midnight Woods suite at this wonderful inn over Labor Day weekend, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The room was very comfortable, the huge shower was awesome, and the breakfast was such a pleasure.
