Well this place is one that will take you back to the 60's when multi unit lodging was a standard.
This is not your national chain in any way, and that is exactly why we chose it.
We were driving through Manitou Springs looking for a hotel. We were heading to the Comfort Suites when we happened to cross The Timberlodge. We were intrigued with the fact a stream ran through the property and it was a resort that had cabins and Aframes with porches for rooms. This is what I remember staying in years ago when my family took trips to Colorado
Upon checking in, the owner was a charming lady that was very engaging in conversation. The sign read no pets but we travel with a Pomeranian service dog so she said that was not a problem but warned they had a pesky bear on property that sometimes raided the trash and warned to keep the dog close to us so it would not be the bears lunch. Both the dog and us were appreciative of that info.
The rooms are quaint, not very big but it was perfect for a cozy night stay. We sat on the porch for a couple of hours just unwinding from the day
In the future I will remember this place if I was to come back for a few days to see the sights of seven Falls or Garden of the Gods. It is so much more relaxing and perfect for a quick getaway than a national chain and the room was a mere $75
So, I would return again and it is close to all the attractions and great food
