The pictures of the hotel are older, I am going to ask Gwenn to update them. There is new carpet, new linens, new wallpaper, new paint. The house is going to be repainted in the fall of 2009!
You are just down the road about 1/4 a mile from Seven Minute Spring which is where we got married four years ago. You are right in the heart of Manitou Springs. This is the only B&B in the area that also allows for a 1 night stay. This place would be perfect for a Bridal Party!
Our bed was comfortable, room was clean and there is absolutely NO MUSTY smell like you get in other B&B's.
Breakfast consisted of fresh Palisade Peaches, excellent coffee (none of the Maxwell House junk here) fresh homemade coffee cake as well as a crust less quiche. Gwenn usually makes fresh homemade cookies in the afternoon as well. There are always muffins and other goodies available.
Our room was the Ruxton and there was a small fridge in the closet. There was also a small trundle bed in the room as well. The fridge is stocked with water, and if you have been to Colorado, you know you will need it.
We have stayed at four other B&B's in Colorado, some of them say they got the best of the best award! I don't see how. Obviously they didn't compete with this place, it is just spectacular!
