A Visit to Manitou Springs

By
Real Estate Agent with The Berkshire Group

Last weekend, my husband and I traveled to Colorado Springs to celebrate an early Valentine's Day. We stayed at the historic Cliff House, a lovely Victorian hotel nestled into the mountainside of Manitou Springs. We enjoyed an incredible dinner and got up early on Saturday to walk around town.

Armed with my new camera, I took numerous photos inside and out.

Inagine yourself sitting on the veranda, sipping your favorite beverage as you watch people walk by.

Although I could have used a flash, I loved the natural lighting of the room.

Just having fun....again, no flash

The wonderful attention to detail was amazing....if you ever have a chance, be sure to stay here. The service was absolutely 5 Star, the food delicious and the rooms incredibly comfortable.

I love the unusual masonary on the building and the attention to detail inside.

I have been there Emelyn - It is a wonderful and charming old place full of history. What a great place to visit for Valentine's Day! Did you know it was closed down and fenced off for many years due a fire?

That's a remarkable looking place to look at and stay Emelyn.  It looks close in style to the buildings at NorthStar in Lake Tahoe.

What a beautiful place!  I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Colorado, but my husband won't let me go without hitting the slopes.  I must say, I'm not the worlds most adept skier.
