My grown daughter & I stayed at the Victoria's Keep Creekside Cottage for a week in early June 09. It's located a few blocks from the B&B, on the main street in Manitou, but a couple of blocks away from all the shops. This was an ideal place for us. The house itself is 100 years old but updated & very charming. We bought some groceries to eat at "home" a couple of times- the kitchen was fully stocked with dishware, utensils & appliances, so if you wanted to cook 3 meals a day here, it would be easy. The bathroom also had soaps, shampoos, hair dryer & cleaning supplies. You are expected to clean up after yourself, but who wouldn't, in a place just like home? There was also a washer & dryer (small, but worked fine), a vcr with some movies (family stuff) & a plug for the computer. The bedroom was large & comfortable, but my daughter said the matress on the sofa-bed was thin. However, there was also a daybed. My favorite thing was the large hammock in the backyard right next to the creek. It was so relaxing. The staff was friendly, informative & very accommodating. They thought of everything! I hope we can stay again when we come back to Manitou.
