About

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.

Wonderful Experience!

5 on January 06, 2014

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!

Blue Skies Inn the Perfect Romantic Setting

5 on July 01, 2013

Everything is perfect at the Blue Skies Inn. From the cozy sleeping chamber to the spacious and well-appointed bathroom to the intimate sitting room, the entire environment is gauged to encourage romance. Breakfast was served promptly at the requested times and was always absolutely delicious. We were married at the Inn and took advantage one of the offered wedding packages. There is one kind of couple that should take advantage of the Blue Skies Inn for a wedding...those wishing to have a well-planned, romantic wedding. Then, too, the price cannot be bettered for a wedding with 100 or fewer guests. It includes one of three beautiful wedding settings (two outdoors and one indoors), a professional photographer, all flowers, the cake, large quantities of the tastiest hors d'oeuvres you can imagine and two nights at the Inn. The only things you must supply are wedding garb and guests. The proprietors work closely with you to ensure your wedding is perfect. We more-or-less left everything to them aside from colors and music, and it resulted in a beautiful, romantic, relaxed wedding day.


Fantastic stay in Ferdinand's Garden

4.6 on May 18, 2013

For our 19th wedding anniversary, we spent the night at the Blue Skies Inn. Soon after we arrived, we met Mike who checked us in and gave us a brief tour of the property which includes ten hand-painted, uniquely designed suites. Mike proudly showed off Sally's handiwork - from the hand painted furnishings and custom tile work to the stenciling and murals which make each room its own unique tapestry. Following a relaxing and romantic night, we awoke to a hot breakfast being dropped off on our doorstep which we enjoyed in our breakfast nook. We feasted on a sumptuous spinach eggbake with fresh fruit and homemade muffins before spending some time in the hot tub and making our way back home.


Best of the Best!

We've stayed at Blue Skies twice now and can't wait to stay again. Sally and Mike are the ultimate hosts. They are constantly working to improve on perfection. Even with the long and harsh winter they are preparing for the Spring, Summer, and Fall season by redoing and fixing up things that would already seem great to most people. So inventive, artistic, and personable ways they find to make things even better. Anytime is a great time to stay at Blue Skies!
