“Outstanding Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Our stay at Onaledge was absolutely delightful! The location was perfect, the grounds are stunning, and the house and views of the mountains are breathtaking! This B&B is a grand gem! Incredibly delicious breakfast, lovely antique furniture, fantastic inn keeper, courteous and attentive staff. It was so wonderful to see everyone's warm and welcoming smiles everyday they made you feel right at home! We had so much fun exploring the grounds and the B&B.
My husband and I had also decided to have our vows renewed while we were on our vacation. Brett renewed our vows for us right there on the grounds! We had a lovely experience and he did a fantastic job preparing this for us!
I would also like to mention how much there is to do there. We did so many fun things with our family! We visited Garden of the Gods (a few times), hiked up the incline, hiked the barr trail, went up Mt Cutler trail in Cheyenne Canon Park, visited Helen Hunt falls which is also in Cheyenne Canon Park, visited Cave of the winds, Shopped, and much much more. There was always something for us to do, but then it was so nice being able to go home to the peaceful and charming B&B.
Thank you again Brett and Staff for making this one of our most memorable Vacations!

We stayed a week in this beautiful old home looking up at Pikes Peak and walking the lovely landscaped grounds. It is a short distance to the quaint village of Manitou Springs and all that the Colorado Springs area has to offer.
Each room has its own character and all are very comfortable. I cannot give enough praise for the staff. The breakfast are gourmet and beyond expectations. Now, the owner of the place is someone we all wanted to meet as children. If he is not the closest thing to Santa, then there is none.
Ida and I recommend this B&B without ANY hesitations!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the main house, although most stayed in the lower house.

We recently spent a weekend at Onaledge, one of the properties at Red Crags B&B in Monitou Springs, Colorado. Susan checked us in and we had wine, fruit and cheese outside as we took in the most amazing view! Brett made the most amazing breakfast every morning until we checked out Mon. Morning. Both made us feel most welcome. We stayed in the Rockledge, a beautiful room and suite as well! Garden of the Gods is close as well as Cogs Railroad to Pikes Peak. Onaledge is one of Colorado's well known haunted houses. We enjoyed our visit and will tell all our friends!

Room Tip: Rockledge has only a walk-in shower but it is huge! There is only one room available on the main flo...

We found Robert and Susan to be excellent hosts. Red Crags is an old home located next to another property where you have breakfast. We stayed in the Cherub Room. This room was large and had a sitting room with a fireplace. The bathroom was equipped with a wonderful shower. With antique furnishings, we found the room to be a bit dimly lit. Red Crags also has the advantage of a great location to explore the area. It is close to the Pike's Peak Cog Railroad and backs up to Garden of the Gods. It came very close to an excellent rating and you will be happy staying here.

Thank you for a wonderful stay at the Onaledge. Georgia (daughter) and I were there May 23 through May 25 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves—so much so that we did not want to leave. Georgia was thrilled with her paranormal encounter when she felt a definite tugging of her shirt while in the small bedroom. We were both in love with all of the Estate, but felt especially privileged to stay in the Onaledge Room. We hope to come back and stay in one or some of the other rooms. Manitou Springs feels like home to us, thanks to our stay with you!

If you're visiting Manitou Springs, this is a MUST for absolutely wonderful accommodations! I stayed in the Teddy Roosevelt Room with a breathtaking view of Pikes Peak from a private balcony! Needless to say, my morning coffee was never so incredible as enjoyed from such a location! I also loved the beautiful fireplace. There was no shortage of wood available for my nightly fires, and it couldn't have been more cozy and inviting!

I also loved the location...just a short trip into a very quaint downtown Manitou Springs. The shopping was magnificent, and I found some real treasures (especially in the art galleries) to help me remember my trip!

Thanks to Susan and the entire staff for a terrific stay! I hope to be back again soon, and I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!

My husband and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at the Red Crags Estates, one of three properties in Manitou Springs, including the Onaledge and Rockledge. The buildings are gorgeous - when we arrived we felt like we were entering a fairy tale. Majestic mansions high on a hillside are surrounded by beautiful grounds. Once you drive through the regal wrought iron gates you climb a meandering drive up to the Rockledge building, where the offices are located. A charming young man named Jacob greeted us, in uniform and introduced us to Susan, who checked us in and made us feel like family. The rest of the weekend was wonderful and relaxing. Brett's breakfasts were delicious, hot and hearty. The afternoon wine and cheese was lovely. We sat on the patio in back of Rockledge and took in the spectacular views. We stayed in the Cherub room in Red Crags, a charming Victorian estate. From the location to the service and the overall value - we could not have asked for a better experience. We highly recommend it!
