I had been looking for a different place to spend some time with my Bride on the weekend of our 40 anniversary. Having never before stayed at a B&B I looked for different places. Hughes Hacienda was the spot I finally chose at the last minute. Wayne was very accommodating to the late reservation. We spent 2 days. Our room was well appointed and Carol was a gracious host, attentive and friendly. Carol was a new friend by the time we left. The location and views of the Blue mountains was special to us. The facility is very quiet and my bride and I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the facility once we relaxed after about 1 hour sitting on the patio. The hummers and birds of all kinds flittered about the patio. Carol and the birds made the superb and delicious breakfast even more enjoyable, almost didn't want the leave while enjoying their chatter. The deer were also up close and personnel.
Wayne also knows the places to eat and see in Colorado Springs and local area. Wayne's restaurant suggestions were right on for our tastes and the variety. Several good to excellent places are within 10 miles of the Hacienda. Each place he suggested we tried and the restaurants were very enjoyable.
Hughes Hacienda is tucked away in the foothills and in early August with the Hot Colorado temperatures this weekend brought a little coolness.
Both Colorado Springs and The Royal Gorge are nearby. A little over 45 minutes to the Gorge and Canon City.
Since this was our first B&B experience I would believe that I could not have chosen a better spot.
