Nestled near the base of Pikes Peak, Blue Skies Inn is scenically located in historic Manitou Springs and within walking distance of the Garden of the Gods. Marvel at majestic views and brilliant sunshine in this charming mountain town. Giant willows at streamside and a shady Secret Garden set the mood for a wonderfully restful time. Inspired by our 1873 carriage house on the estate of the founder of Manitou Springs, Blue Skies Inn was built new from the ground up in Gothic Revival architectural style. Each of our quiet three-room suites was painted and decorated by an artist using different decorative themes.

Warm winter retreat.

4.0 on November 25, 2014

Was the second time staying here. We celebrated our 4th anniversary and had an enjoyable experience. When we arrived,since it was so cold, Mike suggested an upstairs room with a gas fireplace at no additional charge.(Would have been $30. more a night.) We stayed 2 nights and were never cold.Great suggestion.The view from our room was spectacular. We even saw a huge Buck walking thru the back yard and wedding area,plus lots of animal footprints,large and small, in the new snow. The breakfast basket alone is worth the price of the stay.Delivered to the door with a "shave-and-a-haircut". I'd never heard of that before but now I know.The basket was heavy with goodies.Hot,fresh muffins and an egg dish,plus fruit ,orange juice,milk.What a way to start a day!!

Fabulous B&B

First time at a bed and breakfast--not sure what to expect--reserved on line based on other reviews. Everything about our stay was perfect--wish we could have stayed longer. Mike and Sally were absolutely dedicated to making our stay wonderful. Very kind, warm and friendly. The room we chose was fun and creative--down to every detail. Looking forward to returning to experience another wonderful, relaxing stay. Glenn and Donna, MN

We were extremely pleased with the room. But, the best experience during our short stay was having breakfast delivered to our room at 8:30 in a lovely basket! The food was delicious. The B&B is quiet. The host was so welcoming. The B&B was easy to find - we stopped at the Visitors' Center to get general information about Manitou Springs, looked up and saw the Blue Skies arch next door!

Our Family Favorite!

I discovered Blue Skies Inn many years ago, and it has become my favorite place to stay any time I'm in the Colorado Springs area. The Deep Blue suite is my favorite for when I bring my granddaughter with me - but for a romantic weekend, try the Sunset Suite. The breakfast each morning is brought right to your door in a basket you can take out for a picnic - and it's always fresh and delicious! Mike and Sally take extra care to make sure your stay is everything you want it to be. I'll be back again! and again. and again. You will not be disappointed!

Wonderful Experience!

This B&B was absolutely delightful! We randomly picked Blue Skies Inn from the online photos and couldn't have been more in awe when we saw our suite in person. Everything was meticulous from the artwork in the rooms to the incredibly delicious hot breakfast that was delivered in the morning in 2 big beautiful baskets. Sally and Mike were wonderful hosts and very accommodating with making our stay comfortable with our kids. You can see the pride they take in their B&B. In fact, if you ask Mike, he will take you on a tour of the grounds and give you a detailed history about the property. Seeing the different suites was like going to a museum. We will definitely return!

very good

A beautful pla to stay!

Blue Skies B&B is a beautiful place to say because the innkeepers have made it a very special place to stay. Each room is very charming, thanks to Sally's (the innkeeper) artwork. Plus, breakfast is to "die for", especially if you eat it in the Secret Garden. We should know because w have stayed there at least 14 times!

Wonderful stay and Lovely location

We stayed for 2 nights in the Indian Rock Art Room. It was very comfortable. The room was clean, and cozy. The breakfast is delivered to your door in an adorable basket, with fresh baked muffins and other dishes. We would recommend this B&B highly!

Uniquely Charming

The Blue Skies Inn was the perfect choice for our honeymoon. We enjoyed our spacious suite, which was beautifully decorated. A large, hot breakfast was served to our suite every morning. The food was delicious - definitely one our of our favorite parts. The atmosphere of the B&B was relaxing and charming; it was unlike anywhere we had ever visited. We had a wonderful experience thanks to the friendly innkeepers, Sally & Mike. We are looking forward to visiting again!
