Blue Skies Inn proved to be a great place to stay. In our 2-week vacation that included staying at 6 different B&Bs or inns, our accommodations here were the most spacious and beautiful. Even though it's located in Manitou Springs, the setting was peaceful and quiet with daily visits from several deer. We could easily walk into town to eat... More

The Blue Skies Inn is a great B&B in Manitou Springs. The Inn keepers, Sally and Mike, are great hosts and people. Sally opened the Inn and decorated the rooms. Each room has a theme that is unique. We stayed in the Dot Matrix room, which had an African Safari theme. The room is hand painted, with tiger stripes and... More

The room was warm, wonderful and inviting! The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable. The hot breakfast each morning was a most welcome addition and very delicious! Just our side our door were beautiful pathways and gardens, highlighted by various outdoor locations for a beautiful wedding ceremony. Not far away was a lovely footpath along the river leading up to downtown... More

The Blue Skies Inn was our first stop having arrived at DIA and driven to Manitou Springs. I had got in touch with Sally to say we'd be arriving late and all was in perfect order when we got to the Indian Rock Art Room. We slept really well as the B&B is in a quiet location away from the... More

Stayed here for three nights in July 2016 and had a great trip overall. The location is really convenient to lots of attractions. We did not realize that Manitou springs was a village of aging hippies and funky persons. It was quite an experience. The folks that run this B & B are really welcoming friendly people. Be aware that... More

We just had our family from Denmark and celebrated grandads 90 birthday at Blue Skies Inn. All three rooms was fantastic and the service and kindness from Sally and Mike was incredible. Showing this place to our family was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for them and they could not have been happier. We use it ourselves for our recreation as often... More

The Inn is beautifully kept, peaceful, relaxing and quiet. With a ten minute walk, you're in the middle of historic Manitou Springs and all of its splendor. With a two minute drive, you can be soaking in cedar hot tubs or enjoying a massage at Sun Water Spa. It's a great spot for a wind down weekend!!

My wife and i returned to the awesome Blue Skies Inn to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. It was the 2nd time we've stayed there. We had such great memories and a wonderful experience on our 1st stay that I couldn't wait to go back. It was even better than I remembered it to be. Can't wait to return!

We were only able to stay here one night, our last of two weeks in CO, and it was the best place of all. The inn is tucked away in a quiet part of a busy area. The grounds are lovely and our room, Indian Rock Art, was fabulous. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated, and the bathroom was... More

We stayed here before heading to Denver on business. We had the very lovely and quiet Indian Rock Art Suite, which had a lovely and soothing decor. It is also handicapped-friendly, so everything was very easy to navigate. It definitely had a very Southwestern appeal. Breakfast was delivered in a picnic basket by 8 am every morning, with an egg... More
