Tiny but mighty!

We had sandwiches for lunch - all were very tasty. Everything is fixed fresh. Of course, we also had ice cream, and it was delicious too! Fun, quaint little place to visit.

If you hunger for ice cream and live in this neck of the woods, this is your only option. Kids love it, but for the adult taste, this ice cream is super sweet, almost cloyingly so. Yes, take the kids here, but if you're an adult, take the longer drive to Josh and John's in Colorado Springs for truly gourmet... More

Nice local place to grab some ice cream - inside and outside tables you can sit and enjoy. Looks like they have a small menu of food too if you are looking for more of a snack

We got a chance to stop at Rock House Ice Cream on our way home from a weekend in the Colorado Springs area. Every time I have been by this place, I've just eaten or it's too crowded. Not so this time! We were able to pull right in and park, and there was room inside to enjoy our treats.... More

The ice cream is nice and tastes very rich. The place has a nice feel to it. They also have gluten free ice cream cone which is special. Normally I'd give it a three but since it caters to gluten free folks it gets four stars.

We were a group of seven Gold Wingers and planned the route so we could have the desert here after we ate lunch in Woodland Park! The ice cream is ALWAYS good and the service fast and friendly. Rum Raisin was a new flavor for me and it joined Butter pecan for a scrumptious cone! I wish folks would review... More

The ice cream is really the star of the show here. They do have kitchen capabilities, the cup of chili I had was tasty and the sandwich adequate, but they are really just vehicles to make you feel as though you ate something remotely healthy before indulging in the excellent ice cream. Go for the ice cream, don't expect too... More

This has a quaint small-town feel with top-notch ice cream. Favorites are peppermint stick, mocha, raspberry chip and they even have fresh, delicious gluten-free cones! Good prices and friendly staff.

We love the small town setting, with a wonderful friendly staff and a great selection of ice cream treats! We ahve loved this place since moving into the area in 1999, and have even gotten gift certificates to the Rock House for my wife's 20 piano students!
