The Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast, our Historic Inn & Romantic Getaway

Step into an award-winning boutique hotel and bed and breakfast, escape the everyday at the base of Pikes Peak in the heart of downtown Manitou Springs. Our historic Colorado bed and breakfast was built in 1886 and surrounded by the Pike National Forest and is within minutes of Old Colorado City and downtown Colorado Springs. Originally our house served as a boarding house from the Pikes Peak or Bust era of Colorado history.

Our large, uniquely decorated rooms have been renovated with modern amenities and offer a spacious yet cozy getaway. Each with a private bath and some with authentic claw-foot tubs. We work to maintain the historic charm and the turn-of-the-century architecture while providing a comfortable, quality stay. Each room has king or queen size beds, peaceful and private sitting nooks, and a variety of views.

The patio hot tub is perfect for a romantic night under the stars. Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies are offered daily. Every morning you awake to locally-sourced Colorado coffee, signature-blended juices, and a full, delicious, homemade breakfast. We cater to all food allergies and eating lifestyle requests. Just let us know ahead of time. During the warmer months, we serve our hot gourmet breakfast out on our covered front porch overlooking the historic main street of Manitou Avenue.

Perfectly located and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, our local brewery and other pubs, wine bars, and art galleries. Zip-lining, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding,  mountain biking, fishing, Jeeping, and sightseeing are all within minutes of our front door. Notable sites to see during your trip include the Manitou Incline, Garden of the Gods, the top of Pikes Peak, the Cave of the Winds, and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. You can find our complete list of things to do in the Pikes Peak region here.

Private massages can be scheduled, and are available on-site at the bed and breakfast. If you are planning a special occasion or a romantic getaway, we can help! Special getaway packages are booked at time of reservation.

The Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast is an adult retreat for a girls’ weekend, or a perfect anniversary getaway. As the largest bed and breakfast in Manitou you can host your next family reunion in our warm and welcoming inn. We are a small town bed and breakfast, a local business, and a historic home with a lot of stairs.
