The Craftwood Inn used to be a restaurant, but is now used exclusively for weddings. The new owners took 5 months to refurbish the building. It's a beautiful historical building and they did an excellent job w the décor. They can accommodate up to 100 people. There is dining, bar and dance areas along with a nice patio with water...

I went to this restaurant a week before it tragically closed! I wish they would find a way they could make it reopen this was some of the best food in the Colorado Springs area!

I wanted to treat my wife to a nice meal for Valentine's Day and the Craftwood Inn delivered. My wife had the blackened diver scallop, roasted golden beet salad, and the Colorado Striped bass. I ordered the ostrich tataki, Tahitian Vanilla scented lobster bisque, and the red wine braised rabbit. We shared a dessert which consisted of white chocolate mousse,... More

My husband and I saw this advertised in the newspaper and immediately made a reservation. We have been twice and have not been disappointed. The event is on Wednesday nights and you must have a reservation. The meal is 3 courses and you don't know what is going to be served until you arrive(so this is not for picky eaters),... More

We held a company party at the Craftwood Inn last night. I have to say that the even manager, Bobbie Laluna, and the entire staff that supported our event were superb - professionals all! The appetizers we had during our cocktail hour were wonderful - raves were heard from all on the ostrich, shrimp, smoked salmon, sausages, meat platter, and... More

We went to the Craftwood Inn on the strength of other reviews and we weren't disappointed. Started with the striped beet and shaved fennel salads. Phenomenal. I had the elk, while the wife ordered the striped bass and scallops. The elk was a bit gamey which you would expect, but the flavor was great. The striped bass was terrific, although... More
