My husband and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at the Red Crags Estates, one of three properties in Manitou Springs, including the Onaledge and Rockledge. The buildings are gorgeous - when we arrived we felt like we were entering a fairy tale. Majestic mansions high on a hillside are surrounded by beautiful grounds. Once you drive through the regal wrought iron gates you climb a meandering drive up to the Rockledge building, where the offices are located. A charming young man named Jacob greeted us, in uniform and introduced us to Susan, who checked us in and made us feel like family. The rest of the weekend was wonderful and relaxing. Brett's breakfasts were delicious, hot and hearty. The afternoon wine and cheese was lovely. We sat on the patio in back of Rockledge and took in the spectacular views. We stayed in the Cherub room in Red Crags, a charming Victorian estate. From the location to the service and the overall value - we could not have asked for a better experience. We highly recommend it!
