This place had my jaw dropped. The history and atmosphere was fascinating to me. We stayed at the Red Crags in The Room With a View. The bed was soooo comfortable and the room was decorated so beautifully. Antiques everywhere! I was hoping for a "haunting" experience which we didn't have. But I would highly recommend this beautiful dwelling to...

My husband and I had our wedding here last year and have come back for our anniversary. This place is wonderful! From the beautiful aesthetics of the terrace and surroundings to each property, this place is sure to please. Each room is decorated with a great balance of simplicity to feel like home, yet a touch of luxury to make...

We stayed in the Bonnie Brae room on Saturday night and it was absolutely amazing! Beyond comfortable and relaxing! We loved it so much we're coming back for our anniversary every year from now on! The location is close enough to the shopping in Manitou springs yet far enough away to get away from the world for a little while....

Came up for Fallen Firefighter's Memorial on 9/19. BF picked the venue, and he did an amazing job. I loved the home. It was beautiful. There is a cocktail hour during checkin from 3 - 6. Wine selection limited. Water with oranges floating in it...yuck. Cookies were good. Cheese and crackers good also. I loved the room (L'Abri)...that is until...

Our first stay at a B&B. Staff was wonderful and accommodating. Room was very clean. Bed was comfy. Beautiful claw footed tub (with shower). Breakfast was exceptional. Private sitting area outside. Grounds were well kept and clean. There really was nothing that we needed that wasn't taken care of by the owner. I would love to come back around the...

This B & B is not run as the other B & Bs that we have stayed in. The breakfast is served at an adjacent house. Before booking a room, I would think that they would like to inform guests of the hike to breakfast. The serving time seems to be set at 8:30. I'm not sure what happens if...

The Carriage at Onaledge is indeed a unique room. So named as it is the historical Carriage House. As one of our economical selections, no, it is not as spacious as others but offers privacy and direct access to hot tub on the back deck of Onaledge. Your input is definitely noted as I want to assure guests of the...

We stayed in the Cara Bell for 3 nights. Clean and comfortable room with a few unique (some might consider them odd) features. First, as we were told upon booking the room, the private bathroom is across the hall. Not too much of an inconvenience except if you have to make a middle of the night trip ... you better...

The Cara Bell Room is one of two of our most economical rooms due to the detached (but private) bath. The $100 price is offered for those seeking a price wise alternative. The room is situated such that only one other guest room is near. We apologize for the the Wifi aspect as we continue to put amplification in to...

Hubby chose this place because it was rated highly and sounded very nice. We stayed in the Rockledge House which is part of Red Crags Estates.

Good input and we will utilize ideas presented. Our Library Room is one of our economical choices as it is not as spacious as our Gold and Platinum level rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our historic 1874 B&B located in Manitou Springs, Colorado offers style and elegance for Pikes Peak area visitors. Continuing a long tradition of hospitality, Red Crags Bed & Breakfast Inn's renown spans more than 100 years. Serving as a bed and breakfast since 1989, this celebrated 4-story Victorian manor envelopes the discerning guest in a time of beauty and impeccable atmosphere. The main house of the inn is more than 7,000 square feet and presides over a 2-acre estate overlooking Manitou Valley. From the B&B, Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods may be seen, providing the guest with a unique perspective of the area. Stepping inside the manor is like stepping back in time. The main floor common area is characterized by lovingly preserved antiques, hardwood floors, and soaring ceilings. Gather around the fireplace for some conversation in the parlor, which also features a large bar and antique piano. On a sunny day, take some time to relax in the solarium and enjoy views of the surrounding mountains and Pikes Peak. A rare cherry wood Eastlake fireplace is the focal point of the formal dining room. All guestrooms are appointed with king-size beds with additional amenities as wood or gas-burning fireplaces, jetted tubs, antique ball and claw tubs or other aspects unique to providing our guests with live history.Outside, sit on the covered decks or walk through the beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens. You can relax by the gurgling brook. Meander to the bluff and take in the best view of the Manitou Valley. Beneath the Colorado blue skies, our air is clean and clear virtually every day of the year. ... more   less
