“Great location for touring or relaxing!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

My husband and I travel yearly on his Harley with other friends on Harley's. We always stay in Bed and Breakfast's. Avenue Bed and Breakfast has a great location for touring or just relaxing. Gwen was accommodating and very organized. She did have two ladies who assisting her when serving breakfast. They were never really introduced to us and I should have taken more initiative and talked more with them. Gwen seemed a little stressed because the B&B was full. The breakfasts served were good and the portions were just right. Coffee, tea, and other beverages were always available. The only negative I might offer is that on the last day's breakfast soft boiled eggs were served and most of our group did not care for them. Perhaps we should talk about our likes and dislikes on next year's trip.

Room Tip: Look at all the room descriptions before booking.

This was our second visit to Avenue B & B. We had an even nicer room this time, and the weather allowed us all to share breakfast on the porch -- another feast! We love this place: pretty, well-located, helpful staff, great food, and a hot tub and patios to enjoy.

Room Tip: I hate to share this, but we really liked the Ruxton Room.

We enjoyed a room on the third floor. Amazingly quiet for being right on the main street. Loved that we had a key to come and go at our leisure. The room was large and comfortable. Lots of nice amenities. Breakfasts on the veranda were amazing. Other guests were interesting and fun to interact with. Enjoyed the hot tub one night and the DVD movie selection. Easy access to local restaurants and entertainment. Owners gave good recommendations of good places to eat. Appreciated their input. Cookies in the evening were a special touch.

We wanted to stay somewhere close so we could walk everywhere. This was perfect for that. Breakfast was great. We stayed in the Carriage House. Not the main house. Was very nice and spacious. Will stay at Avenue next time we are in town for sure. Rick and Mary Leesburg, Florida

We arrived at check in time from a very long drive. Gwen opened door for us and I felt we knew her for years. She showed us to our room which was so comfy looking, but it wasn't the room we booked. When I reminded her that we booked another and our reason she remembered, but apologized because someone was already in it. She showed us the other rooms that were not bring used and we selected the Ruxton Room. It was quite large, king bed, many windows on all sides, a/c unit, comfy chairs, large bathroom, and right by back door so easy to carry luggage. Gwen answered all our questions about area. Sent us to eat at a great restaurant, The Keg, and served wonderful homemade breakfasts. We r pet people, so Zooey, Rena and cats were no problem. I have already recommended this place to friends! If you plan on visiting Manitou Springs, this is where you should stay!

My boyfriend and I have stayed multiple times over the past year. We cant recommend this place or its owners enough!!

This place is massive! And absolutely gorgeous. You can tell the owners care, and have put their time and money into upgrade, after upgrade. The owners are very friendly and always made the effort to ask what we were doing, and how our stay was thus far in our trip.

Gwenn gets up at 5am to make a homemade breakfast from top to bottom, also accommodating early risers. I was so impressed. Not to mention it's delicious! And don't forget the homemade cookies.

For those reviewers that have reviewed poorly because of parking, we had no problems. Gwenn was really helpful when I called to confirm parking. She pointed us in good direction for parking.

Lastly, the location is perfect, the rooms are beautifully put together and the romantic packages are to die for. We did one, and can't wait for another occasion. Shopping, hiking and biking are a plus, as other reviewers have stated. Thanks Gwenn and Randy. We can't wait to go back.

Excellent! Gwenn and Randy are amazing hosts! Their charming personalities and easy-going, yet very attentive, nature made our stay very memorable. Gwenn's breakfasts are knock-your-socks-off delicious and their suggestions of wonderful hidden gems to visit around town were extremely helpful. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed staying here and would readily come again. One look around this place and you can really appreciate the time and effort that they have both put into this wonderful B&B. I really loved the old antiques that could be found all around the place, from the room to the kitchen. The hot tub is a wonderful place to relax after a long day of hiking or sightseeing. We were a little worried about the parking that they mentioned on the website and the confirmation email but we had no problem getting a spot right behind the B&B. We spent most of our time exploring the town and looking at all the wonderful trinkets around the house. Beautiful! Thank you so much for the hospitality!
