We have stayed here a few times, and it is our 'go to' place in the Colorado Springs area. Beyond being close to the quaint town of Manitou Springs, the inn is a very comfortable place to just hang out. Sally and Mike are very nice people who will go out of their way to accommodate, and they serve a...

We have stayed at multiple B&B's in the United States and throughout Great Britain. The Blue Skies at the foothills of Pike's Peak is one of the most delightful that we have encountered in the past 22 years. A gift from our Children Christmas 2015 was utilized as we traveled through Colorado in route to Arizona in April 2016. The...

Wonderful last minute stop on our road trip exploring Colorado/Pike's Peak. Had plenty of privacy, lots of movie choices, and very nice breakfast in the morning, delivered right to our door. Would love to come back! Thanks for your hospitality!

We stayed here in pur little in-state colorado road trip. We stayed in the Deep Blue Suite. We picked this room out specifically for our 6 year old little girl and she loved it. The room was super clean and super cute. The theme was very well played into. The shower was huge. The bed was huge and comfy. We...

Blue Skies Inn is fantastic! My husband and I generally do not like to stay in B and B's due to the lack of privacy and small rooms. We are now completely spoiled and don't think we will ever find accommodations that can live up to this standard. We arrived and were taken care of immediately with warm and professional...

We counted this favorite couple's stays recently - twelve visits to our inn since 2007! We love them as much as they love staying here. It was fun to find Francine quietly crocheting by the waterfall one Autumn afternoon, and she gave us the exquisite doilie that she had created when she went home. We always enjoy trading stories about...

From the moment I contacted Sally (Innkeeper) at Blue Skies I knew we made the right choice. She was extremely helpful in assisting me in choosing the right rooms for our family reunion. She carefully explained all the amenities and the surrounding area. She made suggestions on additional activities and restaurants which allowed us to secure tickets well ahead of...

Family reunions are so much fun for us! As a gift, we collect the names of every family member ahead of time so that we can order a special cake that displays a family tree with everyone's name on it. We are well-acquainted with area activities so plans can be made to suit every age level and interest. Almost every...

As an innkeeper, it's very rewarding to hear about our guests' happy vacations here. One of the nicest compliments is when a guest stays extra nights - we know that we are doing our jobs well when that happens. Repeat guests have the privilege of choosing their favorite muffins for breakfast, and there are a dozen choices. You'll find melted...

The ONLY reason I'm not giving them five stars is that the bed was a little hard. But this is the most romantic, beautiful getaway we've ever had. We will most certainly be back. The "Secret Garden" is so special and the rooms lack for nothing in detail. The breakfast is delicious and hot and you can either eat it...

We are sorry that we "lost a star" in a review due to a bed. We like to fine tune our guests' sleeping experience, so give us a head's up if you need an extra memory foam layer for your mattress. We'll have the bed custom-made for you when you arrive!
