    I have stayed at Blue Skies Inn Bed & Breakfast 8 times in the last six years and will continue to do so.

    I have stayed at other B&B's and they do not compare. At Blue Skies you get a large suite with a private bathroom, and the bathrooms are exceptionally large. Each room is exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. You get a hot and homemade breakfast delivered to your room each morning so you can decide where you want to eat.

    I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants fabulous stay, the in is a destination in itself.

    Unique Quality: The owners, Mike and Sally, are great. They make you feel welcome and go out of there way to make your stay just what you want. The kind of people you meet and feel like old friends after a few minutes.

    It is close to everhthing and at the same time your own personal sanctuary. The grounds are well cared for with unique with gardens everywhere. I particularly enjoy having breakfast on the porch or in the gardens and watching the deer stroll through.

    The hot tub and the extensive movie list (which are delivered to your door with a phone call) are just the ticket after a long day of hiking or sight seeing.

Travel Tips for Manitou Springs

Houses of Manitou Springs residents

by OlenaKyiv


Manitou Springs residential houses are not only located on the hills for you to train your legs’ muscles every time you climb them, but also they are remarkable by their tiny size. Many of them have only 2-3 room, and I mean rooms, not bedrooms, of a small size. Sometimes when I see how small houses outside are, I am thinking of them as hotel cabins, but not the place where people live for most of their time.

Miramont Castle - servants' rooms

by OlenaKyiv

The upper floor of the Castle had rooms for servants. Those days servants’ rooms were not count into total amount of room in the Castle. I can understand why, they are awfully small, so small that even one of the rooms is not shown for the visitors, because it used as a closet or some office room by museum staff. Moreover, two or more servants lived in those rooms.

Historical Manitou Springs

by OlenaKyiv


This small old town with its Indian flat-roof buildings, fountains with mineral water, small houses on the hills, and shops of antiques always attracted me. If I am in Colorado Springs, I will come at least for an hour to Manitou Springs to walk on its streets, watch people, eat in a restaurant, and drink bubbling water from small fountains.

Manitou Springs received its popularity for waters rising from the aquifers deep below the ground, that filled with minerals in high concentration, including the carbonic acid, which gives the water its’ bubbles. First ones who noticed the healing quality of the water were Indians that visited this valley for centuries. Major Stephen Long arrived in 1820, along with surgeon, Doctor Edwin James. It was Dr. James who wrote of the health benefits of the mineral waters. After that many rich people came to this place to heal their and their children health.

Manitou’s development quickly attracted wealthy tourists and long-staying guests. Manitou was laid out like a European spa town, affectionately referred to as Palmer’s “Little Switzerland” , with numerous public facilities and parks.

When tuberculosis was no longer a national health threat, the town became from health resort to just tourist attraction. Now tourists come to buy some souvenir, art work, Indian pottery, also walk among Victorian buildings or even to stay in a hotel of Victorian era.
