“Quiet & Comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

My wife and I booked one night at Red Craigs but within an hour of arrival immediately booked a second night. The property and staff are both charming and personable. The views are spectacular, and the breakfast is delicious. I would highly recommend this location if you are looking for a meaningful getaway. We will be back!

Great B&B with amazing views of Pikes Peak and the mountains, just a short walk to Craftwood Inn. We stayed in the Carriage House, which used to be the quarters for horses way back when and separate from the main house.

Room Tip: Carriage House is a romantic spot - separate from the main house and quiet.

You are literally at the gates of the Garden of the Gods Park & will stay in the most beautiful rooms!! You can visit their website and chose by looking at pictures which is great for picky people like me. I stayed there while rebuilding a trail in the park and the Jacuzzi outside and inside the room kept me from getting soar and relaxed me everyday!! June is an amazing month to go as its 75-85 during the day and 50-65 at night (perfect Jacuzzi weather!!) the breakfast is to die for and hearty!! The couple that owns the place are the sweetest people you could ever meet and very down to earth!! They mingled with our group and told us stories and history on the place. When I go back to CO I will not stay anywhere else!!

I stayed in two different rooms in this complex of three buildings in Manitou. The rooms are quite nice - large, charming, nicely furnished, and mostly nice views. The grounds are outstanding! Great place for a walk or contemplation. It really should not be referred to as a bed and breakfast inn. The breakfasts are quite unfortunate. Left in one's room the night before, they consist of some fruit and wrapped muffins. You can visit the kitchen if you want to retrieve a hard boiled egg and bottles of juice. I only rate this place so low because the price one pays to stay here deserves a hot, gourmet, dining table breakfast.

We hear you loud and clear and have returned to our hot, full gourmet breakfast for all guest of Red Crags Estates! Breakfast is served each morning at 8:30 at Rockledge Country Inn (all 3 are located next door to each other so walk or drive up!). We are sorry about our little "continental breakfast experiment" and look forward to serving your again! So come try our Frittata, Stuffed French Toast, Belgian Waffles, Quiche or Apple Pecan Pancake Bake!! Brett

Moe was very friendly and gave us a tour. We came into town without reservations and they had a great room available. I normally don't stay in B&B's due to the price and somewhat lack of privacy/noise. But this place was beautiful and we found it by accident driving around. There was this great bench on a hill to eat the breakfast and great muffins in our basket. I normally don't get to eat breakfast since I like to take it easy and sleep late, but breakfast was there in the frig waiting for me. The hot tub was clean nice, private and greatly enjoyed. I didn't mind the walk to the bathroom down the hall from our Dr.Bell room, the other guest were polite, quiet and seemed to be relaxing and enjoying the view and mountain air.

The Dr. Bell Room is our most economical room and that bath is private! We have returned to offering full, hot gourmet breakfast at Rockledge Country Inn for all Red Crags Estates guests but for our "sleepers" arrangements can be made to continue with a continental basket to be enjoyed at your leisure.

We stumbled upon this Bed and Breakfast and didn't really know what to expect. This place was gorgeous and in an amazing location. It is a historic Craftsman Style home located on one of the highest hills in the area next to its sister home/lodge. We stayed in the Fireplace suite and loved it. It was a spacious part of the house. We only wish we had more time to stay longer while in the area but were only traveling through.

Stayed at the carriage house at Onaledge Bed and Breakfast. With the AAA discount it was only $90/night during a peak tourist season. The daily fresh homemade muffins, fruit, breakfast bars, and eggs were a great start to the day. Most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Magnificiant scenery, and wonderfully charming architecture surround you. The hot tub was great to sit in at night and enjoy all the stars. Very helpful and friendly staff. I will definitely stay here again if I am ever back in Colorado!
