I stayed at the Nature Center for a weekend conference. Now I'd love to go back for a vacation stay! The hosts were warm and responsive and went out of their way more than once to make sure we had what we needed. The food was delicious and healthy, and they accommodated many requirements and preferences for us. The rooms...

I've been there about 5 times, never had a bad experience. The food is great with enough variety to please everyone. The staff has been there for a long time and really cares to meet your needs. The Nature Place sits in a beautiful area of Colorado. The view from our dining table was Pikes Peak! A few times I...

This was our second 2-day stay and the setting could not be more beautiful and away from the crowds. The rooms are spacious and well-stocked (though ours was a bit warm and stuffy -- I should have asked for a fan). This is not a posh spot, nor should it be, since the setting is the star of the show....

Loved The Nature Center. So relaxing and quiet. Accomodations were great- units were nicely furnished, great beds/pillows, common areas were well equipped with comfy seating, great nature book selection in basement. Several different common areas to choose from. Views of Pikes Peak from deck is amazing. Pool area and gym were nice. Lots of walking trails of varied levels. Food...

There are not many pics of this place but do not hesitate to book in for a company retreat, or anything of the kind. The rooms are beautiful and huge ( the newly renovated ones) Lot's of variety to choose from, all the facilities you want or need. The gym is very dated, but has enough to have a workout....

This is a quiet unassuming spot in the mountains. It is clean and well kept. The staff is available and helpful. The goal is to be unconnected to the world around you in order to enjoy your time in this little gem.

I have been coming to the Nature Place for 20 years. I love the dark skies filled with stars, the view of Pikes Peak, the wildlife, the way you walk out of your cabin and smell the mountain air mixed with evergreen, and the devoted staff who is committed to making each visit an exceptional one. It's the perfect balance...

The accomodations were excellent. Everything was of the highest quality. The room was spotless, as clean and freshly prepared as any 4 star I've ever experienced. The external surroundings were excellent as well - great views of aspens and mountains. This was a business trip, but I plan to return often for pleasure whenever I can.

Myself and my staff attended a 5 day leadership training and retreat. The course was intense so we did not get an opportinity to truly explore The Nature Place, but what I did see was awe inspiring. What I really want to do is give a shout out to Chef Chad. Three of my staff had VERY strict dietary reatrictions...

The Nature Place was our base for a week-long alumni educational program and proved to be terrific! The staff was knowledgeable, accommodating, personable, and capable. Breakfast and dinner were always very delicious; many options were provided for make-your-own sack lunches. The facilities were spotless and well maintained. Our room was recently updated and was extremely comfortable. The Nature Place is...

“As a retreat center, don't expect a standard hotel room. The rooms are much better, more like a suite.”
