1. The Broadmoor

The Broadmoor Hotel, built in the Edwardian period, has kept its original European style and slightly alpine appearance. It is fascinating to follow the timeline of this exquisite century-old property to see all of the invention, expansion and improvements that have taken place. The first golf course opened in 1918, the same year that the original Broadmoor Hotel launched, and soon after there was a chapel, riding stables, and, by the 1940s, a year-round swimming pool. For those who like the outdoors, the number of activities is endless – think fly fishing to swimming, zip-lining to horse riding, rock-climbing to tennis.

2. Magnuson Grand Pikes Peak

It’s the little things that make all the difference here, such as a complimentary breakfast, an indoor pool with a jacuzzi, plus a great gym. The guestrooms at this hotel are spacious and comfortable but the main draw for this property is its fabulous location: being in the shadow of Pike’s Peak allows easy access to outdoor activities, as well as spectacular scenic views. Seven Falls Waterfalls, Pike’s Peak Cog Railway and the Garden of the Gods National Park are all within a few miles (3.2km). Enjoy a Jeep tour of the Pikes Peak region with a popular local operator. Cowboy guides take you to North Cheyenne Canyon, Shortline Railroad with its 100-year-old tunnels and the red rock park of the Garden of the Gods.

Centuries ago, the Native Americans considered the immense sandstone formations of this area sacred ground, and so rival tribes would lay down their weapons before entering. But it was likely the unparalleled natural grandeur and beauty that attracted Mr. and Mrs. Hills to these rugged red rocks near Pike’s Peak. They bought land during the 1950s in what would soon be known as the ‘Garden of the Gods’ and built a remarkable resort, private club and residential community. Stays at this property now are punctuated with wellness of all varieties including massage, medical treatments, skin care, nutrition and fitness.

The history of this Victorian property, built in 1873, is what attracts many of its guests. A stagecoach stop on the Colorado Springs to Leadville line, the earliest guests here were trappers, hunters and gold miners. At this time, it was called ‘The Inn’, before Colorado was a state. The early clientele would soon be replaced by those coming for Manitou’s restorative springs which is still the case today, though it is the location near Pike’s Peak and outdoor activities that has overshadowed the small town. These days, the decor and furnishings are still Victoriana, while the award-winning restaurant is renowned for offering a superb dining experience.
