Stayed at the Red Crags Inn at Onaledge in June after spending a long time deciding on what was the best place to stay while on vacation out there. The property is beautiful and the house impressive, but there were a few frustrating things that occurred.
Originally, I was told that a reservation had been received but that it was not a confirmation. As the date of vacation drew closer, I attempted to confirm by phone -- but no one ever answered any phone, despite a number being given that was supposed to be a direct link to a person. I ran into a similar problem when I arrived in Manitou Springs and needed precise directions. No one answered any phone and I wound up having to ask shopkeepers in the city for directions.
Once there, we seemed to have to look for someone to get checked in, and there really wasn't anyone that was readily available to answer questions. The power went out at one point, and I had to walk around the estate looking for someone to respond. Info given on the registration form about dietary restrictions became irrelevant, and the "enormous" breakfast advertised on the website was a typical fare.
A nice place with a great view, but a little bit too much of a free for all and uncertainty.
