The owners, Mike and Sally, are wonderful people and make you feel so comfortable. They are easy to communicate with and genuinely want their guests to be happy. They also provide several options to choose from (reasonably priced) to make your stay special, including in room massages.

The rooms are spacious, beautiful and exceptionally clean. Each room is beautifully decorated in a different theme, done by the very talented Sally. The bathrooms are exquisite.

The grounds are gorgeous to walk around. There are several options for hanging out, on the porch or any of the tables in the gardens. Sitting next to the waterfalls is so relaxing, not to mention the deer strolling through and the birds singing.

Love the hot tub outside in the gazebo.

An exceptional collection of DVD’s (in the thousands) to suit anyone’s interest, all you have to do is call and they deliver them to your room.

The breakfasts are wonderful and delivered to your door by Mike. You receive a hot, homemade, delicious breakfast in a basket. You choose where and when you want to eat; in your room, in bed, in one of the gardens or throw it in the car and find your own special place to enjoy.

I cannot think of a single thing that they have forgotten or overlooked. I would highly recommend a stay here for any occasion, a romantic getaway, a celebration, a girls weekend, or just some quality time with the special people in your life.

We cannot thank Mike and Sally enough for sharing their piece of paradise with us and making my husband's birthday so special.

We have now been spoiled and a new standard has been set for us that will be hard for anyone to meet.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have jetted tubs and tend to be the more romantically decorated.

Oh, we recognize who wrote this review - one of our favorite couples who visits several times each year. We trade recipes, and talk about making jam from chokecherries like our grandmothers did. Over the years, it has been sweet to meet their parents and their children as they traveled with them to Manitou Springs. We always enjoy hearing updates on their grandchildren. A little granddaughter has already chosen the suite for her next visit: Deep Blue, a whimsical undersea-themed room handpainted with mermaids. Come back soon!

We have stayed here more than once, and will stay here again. It is a great little weekend getaway for us. Sally and Mike are wonderful hosts and continue to improve the facilities and the overall experience. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away from things, or a great wedding venue, this could just be your place. Breakfast is served hot to your door, and is in a portable picnic basket which allows you to eat wherever you like. Each room has a theme (or "cause" as Mike puts it!) and the amount of work put into the rooms is very evident. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the walls are insulated to above average levels. The gardens are beautiful in the spring and summer.

Make sure you check out all the details in your room. There are surprises everywhere!

Room Tip: Check out the Blue Skies Inn website for great pictures and descriptions of the rooms. Upstairs rooms have gas fireplaces, downstairs rooms have electric fireplaces.

Yes, every one of our 450 square foot suites has a different theme - that made building and decorating the inn a LOT of fun. Each suite has a whimsical story that goes with it. We also have a price range for whatever event our guests are planning: a quick tourist visit in the summer or a romantic weekend in the winter. We try to provide features to please anyone who is traveling, so we have several ADA suites as well, a rarity in the B & B industry. We also have a list of ADA-accessible places to visit while our guests are here. We love being innkeepers, and we hope it shows!

I love the unique artistry that went into the design of each of the rooms. We have stayed here twice, and in each of our rooms we had a huge bathroom with a shower and jacuzzi tub. There were also sunrooms in our rooms where we could enjoy the delicious breakfasts that were delivered directly to our door. The gardens were lovely, and our hosts Sally and Mike were wonderfully accomodating.

Yes, we have fun places to splash at our inn. We built and whimsically tiled giant showers in our downstairs rooms, describing them as "big enough for a volleyball team." Upstairs suites have showers and big tubs as well - our candlelight and roses special is perfect for a romantic soak. Our outdoor hot tub is always full of crystal clear water and ready for guest use 24/7. We designed the hot tub gazebo so that guests can relax at night while looking into deep Colorado skies. Our high mountain atmosphere is clear enough that you can see shooting stars now and then!

We live in Colorado Springs and we love coming to Manitou to "get away" from the every day grind. Blue Skies is our favorite place to stay in Manitou.
Blue Skies is clean, has comfy beds, well located, friendly peeps, and an AWESOME BREAKFAST!!!!!!!!
We chose to eat outside in their beautiful garden and loved it!

Room Tip: Some rooms have hot tubs...but they are all great rooms

Yes, we are considered a great getaway for guests who simply live a few miles away. Located in a charming mountain town right at the base of Pikes Peak, the inn is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the large city to the east. We're only four miles from an interstate, but those four miles are a restful escape into a slower, gentler place. We always love watching our guests take deep breaths as they begin to settle in here - relax!

My granddaughter (then 8 yrs old) and I stayed in the Deep Blue suite in June 2011. We had a wonderful time! I don't know which of us enjoyed it more-- it was just magical! I explained the movie "Splash" to her and that the actress who played the mermaid-- she was BIG into mermaids then-- had stayed in the suite and signed the photo on the wall, and she was beyond impressed. The room was beautiful and spotless, the bathroom was amazing, and the innkeepers were very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast that was delivered each morning was delicious and much more than we could eat. The setting of the Inn was beautiful, and it was very near downtown Manitou and Colorado Springs. I hope we can go back again soon.

It is such fun to have grandparents and grandchildren stay with us. Usually, the grandparents have let the kiddoes choose which suite they want. It's so sweet to see the children take complete credit for the wonderful room that they selected for the visit. We always give the children choices for breakfast, and there are some definite Kid Favorites among our muffins. The best compliment is at check-out when the grandchildren can be seen carrying the extra muffins home to their parents - too good to leave behind!
