My wife and I wanted a weekend get-away and we found this charming B&B tucked away in the pines with a great view of Pikes Peak. Frank and Sue are so welcoming and wonderful. The home is immaculately clean and charming -- tastefully decorated with artwork throughout. They make a great breakfast and you can enjoy the morning at your leisure. The property has a hot tub and a wonderful seating area nestled in the pines only a 5 minute walk up the hill where you can sit for hours and view the beauty of the peak. Both Frank and Sue cannot do enough for you to make your stay pleasurable and to top it off, you get to see a real master craftsman at work. Frank has been working with pottery for over 42 years and truly enjoys showing off his artistry and educating you as you watch. And yes, it is hard to leave without buying a piece. We truly loved this cozy retreat and definitely will be back -- so glad we only live an hour away. Easy to find, not far from the highway and a real value. Enjoy the stay - and love on the two dogs!
