“Great food and top value in Colorado Springs”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had the same situation as a previous traveler posted in regard to the downstairs queen. Although a wonderful room, it is right next to the living room / breakfast area and our private bath (not en suite) was reached through that public area, which made us very uncomfortable. The proprietor needs to explain this room a little better before booking guests. We were told the entire living room / breakfast area was our private space, when clearly it was necessary to transit through it to reach the upstairs rooms, the kitchen and porches. We would have rated them higher because of the wonderful food and congeniality provided by the proprietor, but she did not heed other travelers' comments and advise guests accordingly about this particular room. Still, a great value, if you don't mind the compromise with privacy.

Room Tip: The downstairs queen should be your bottom lodging choice.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at A Room with a View Bed and Breakfast. Chris keeps the place stocked for guests--has really thought of little details (from yummy cobbler upon arrival to toiletries that a guest might need). She's extremely knowledgable about the area and it seemed other parts of this beautiful state as well. As far as "inn keeper" personalities go, Chris is on the chatty side (and as a chattly one myself, I can appreciate the quality!)--She is lovely to speak to, but something to keep in mind if you sort of want to just come and go and do your own thing.

What a great place to stay and one that is only a couple of blocks from downtown Colorado Springs yet across the street from a park and nestled in a cozy cottage filled community! The breakfasts were extensive and always delicious, often containing herbs and vegetables from Chris's backyard raised growing beds. We stayed in two different rooms and both were comfortable, clean, well equipped and quiet. Chris, the innkeeper is friendly and extremely helpful, an educator, is well organized and is a wonderful cook! She always asked us to let her know what time we wanted breakfast (with in a few hour time frame) and what we wanted to eat for breakfast. WOW!!!

We stayed with Chris for one night while we were in Colorado Springs and she automatically greeted us with warmth and laughter. She keeps a very nice b and b. Our breakfast in the morning was fabulous! We had a fruit cup, yogurt with homemade granola, homemade bread, and a fabulous quiche that had all fresh herbs and vegetables in it. The room was very nice with a ridiculously comfortable bed. We were within walking distance of downtown and were able to walk to dinner. Just gorgeous! We can't wait to stay here again!

With Chris's help (innkeeper) I was able to plan a wonderful birthday surprise on our road trip across the country! She was so helpful and flexible with the extra accommodations that I requested and helped me plan it all from hundreds of miles away! This bed and breakfast is absolutely wonderful and the price cannot be beat! Chris is such a wonderful host and makes everything that one could ever need available. Not to mention that the breakfast is to die for! She makes her own fresh breakfast using ingredients from her garden and is willing to meet any requests. Overall, this stay was absolutely amazing and I would definitely go back again!

As a somewhat frequent visitor to Colorado Springs, I have stayed in a number lodging facilities. There is no better place in value, atmosphere or comfort that ARWAV. Chris is a wonderful host and the facility is immaculate. Great location and a gateway to the wonders of the area.

My boyfriend and I stayed with Chris in June and it really was a wonderful stay! Her breakfasts were delicious, she was able to tell me about things to do and hikes in the area, and the room was comfortable. She also was great to talk to and I had some lovely evening relaxing and chatting! Thanks Chris!
