We selected the Indian Rock Art 1 room. The decor was absolutely perfect. The room has everything you could possibly need. Sally and Mike were fanastic. Breakfast is brought to your door in a picnic basket. How wonderful is that? Thanks for a wonderful stay. We highly recommend Blue Skies Inn.

We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at our inn. It was fun to choose the themes for our rooms when we built our inn - the Native American pictographs that we painted in the Indian Rock Art suites are found throughout our SW area. Breakfast recipes can be found on our website if you want to try...

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend getaway at Blue Skies Inn. Mike greeted us, showed us our suite, and answered all our questions. We stayed in the Morning Glory room and also looked at the Starlight Suite across the Hall. Sally has decorated them so beautifully. From the faux walls, beautiful murals, and overhanging floral lights in the bedroom...

We stayed at the wonderful Blue Skies Inn while in Manitou Springs climbing Pikes Peak, which is about 2 miles from the inn.

We enjoyed our intrepid Canadian visitors who carefully planned a long hike up and down Pikes Peak in March, sometimes a very snowy trip. It was fun to take photos of them as they set off at the base of the mountain and as they returned, cold but triumphant. A happy trip hiking the mountain depends on your gear, so...

We reserved one night - the Indian Rock Art 1 room - in celebration of our 40+ wedding anniversary. So glad we did! Within walking distance of "downtown" Manitou and yet so quiet. Located adjacent to the Briarhurst Manor, if you choose to eat there. Our room was $161.00, including all taxes. An unexpected delight for a Bed & Breakfast:...

Guests love our location because we are so close to downtown. We have free off-street parking literally within feet of each suite, and our charming little city has free shuttles that will carry our guests all over town, including the the trail head for the Manitou Incline or the Barr Trail up Pikes Peak. Oh, and *about* that vigorous hike...

Okay, we admit it - we are *obsessive* gardeners. We have planted our 2 1/2 acre property with trees, bushes and perennials, many of which our deer find amazingly delicious. Our crocus and daffodils start blooming in February, and our last flowers bloom into October. We are especially fond of the little blue scilla, planted over a hundred years ago...

There are many B&B's, but only one Blue Skies Inn! Be ready for the full treatment from the moment you arrive. The Innkeepers take pride in the rooms and property and it's evident they take pride in making sure your stay is a comfortable one. Love all the fun themes in the rooms! We look forward to going back after...

When building our inn 21 years ago, we decided that our mission would be "Fun at Blue Skies Inn," which we even use for our email address. Sally used her art degree background to create entertaining interiors which are hand painted. Kiddoes love the ocean-themed Deep Blue suite and the celestial Starlight suite as well as Dot Matrix, a fun...

I booked a 4 day stay at Blue Skies Inn for my family's first trip to Colorado. We stayed in the Indian Rock Art II room, and it was nicely set up and decorated.

Blue Skies Inn is located on the 1871 property once owned by the founder of Manitou Springs, Dr. William Bell. He located his home streamside, right in the middle of our beautiful valley at the base of Pikes Peak. We are wonderfully located right in the middle of our area's fun activities - tell us your interests, and we'll help...

Charming B & B just down the street from the hustle and bustle of Manitou Springs. Hand painted floral motif in every room, very personalized service by the gracious owners. Breakfast brought to your room in a picnic basket with hot coffee, an egg dish, muffin, fruit. Would stay again if I am passing through the area.

So we figure that the Rule of Decoration is: if you build your own B&B, you can paint it any way you wish. We did! It's hard to choose which suite was the most fun to create: the two that have Southwest Indian Rock Art images as a mural, the one that is all about the African savanna, a couple...

We stayed in the Sunset Room, billed as Blue Sky's most romantic room. It was dreamy and delightful, so so so romantic!
