The Lodge worked beautifully! for our Air Force Academy graduation. We had off/on 18 people thru the week. We had space to be together comfortably, and yet space on the grounds to get away from each other for quieter moments.
Everyone loved the pine-mountain setting. As each family entered the lodge, people would exclaim "WOW!" and "how did you find this place?"
Wonderfully stocked kitchen which permitted us to serve a wide range of meals. We had as many as 20 people sit down to eat with us.
Very rustic--the good kind of rustic. Comfortable and have the feel of being away from the hustle/bustle of the congested Colo Springs.
Each bedroom was unique with one special feature (such as a balcony or fireplace).
Great location at the base of Pikes Peak, or within less than an hour, we could get to historical towns and the Academy. Great, unique places to eat within 10-15 minutes in Manitou Springs.
Owners live nearby and could answer our questions about caring for the lodge, yet far enough away, we didn't feel like we were being spied on.
The lodge was stocked well with towels, blankets, sheets, travel info, reading books, games, and the like. Plenty of parking, too.
For me, booking the Rocky Mountain Lodge for USAFA graduation was the bonus of the week.
Thank you so much for the opportunity for us to use your Lodge for our family reunion. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The Lodge is beautiful, warm and inviting, and the rooms were so comfortable. We felt like it was a “home away from home” – only more relaxing.
The Lodge provided a wonderful place for our family reunion. We all enjoyed the comfortable surroundings and the beautiful view of the mountains. Our five children, spouses, and six grandchildren had such fun playing together, sight-seeing, staying up late, and getting up early. All of us agree it was the best reunion ever!

We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door and it only got better. During our two days here, we felt very pampered and relaxed.

We have stayed in many "bed and breakfasts" throughout the U.S. & Europe and none have had the quality of breakfast that you served us! Thank you so much for giving of your time to make our visit so enjoyable. --D&J, Florida
We feel very lucky to have found such a pleasant and astmospheric base for our work and vacation time in Colorado Springs. The cuisine has been excellent and your recommendations superb. Our last few days in the USA for this trip have helped us to unwind enormously before returning to the hectic U.K. The hot tub has been a great grand finale. All the best in your venture for the future, we presume it will continue to grow & prosper. --A&L, England
We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate our parents' 70th anniversary! You showered us with the virtue of hospitality, and it's obviously a labor of love for you. The food was unbelievable. The cherry cobbler and the French toast were my favorites. We felt so at home, finding coffee and tea at any hour. The cheery fire and the hot tub were delightful. We've stayed in many B&B's in the US and Europe, but we've never felt so at home. --J&B, Virginia
Thanks so much for the wonderful hospitality - the breakfasts were out-of-this-world excellent! They usually carried us through very active days all the way to supper. We hope to enjoy your excellent service and hospitality in the future. --G&L, Illinois
What a beautiful Colorado Christmas. A lovely lodge in the midst of a beautiful creation made our stay so enjoyable. A great place for a family reunion! --S&R, Kansas
We came a short distance only, from Colorado Springs, just to get away for the weekend and celebrate Valentine's Day. It was one of the best weekends ever. So relaxing! We felt right at home. Debbie is such a gracious hostess, a gift from above. We got the "Romance Package" and it was awesome! We were really pampered. The food was excellent, especially the French Toast - how does she do that !? Anyway, thank you, thank you! Anyone who gets to stay here is blessed. The Ramona room will hold special memories for us. Thanks again! --R&L, Colorado
You made us feel welcome and at home immediately. This is the most awesome homey lodge. All your decors are exactly how I want my home. We will definitely spread the word about your gorgeous Lodge. This was our 1st experience in an outdoor hot tub in the winter!! It's one of the highlights of our 2 week trip. The real wood fireplace was an extra treat! And the gourmet food was to die for! Your 3 course breakfast is elegant & delicious. You definitely have the gift in all aspects for this B&B business! Thanks for all the extra special touches. We'll be back! --R&D, Wisconsin
What a surprise! Our imaginations had not come close to the wonderful experience of being here.

We had a girls' night out - the MaMa sisterhood came! Enjoyed the hot tub for 2 hours - turned into prunes. The sky was full of stars! Loved the chocolate dessert - YUM!

Thank you for another wonderful visit to your lodge! We are on our way home from a long trip, one of the highlights for us in planning the trip, was a stop by your B&B. We knew this would be a great, relaxing end to several days on the road. You did not disappoint! We slept great in the Rocky Mountain air and relaxed by the fire. The dessert was yummy too! Again thank you, we look forward to visiting again. --B&C, Kansas
Thank you for an absolutely amazing time. You guys are so great and your generosity and kindness overflows at this place. We are on our honeymoon and had the most romantic time ever.

Wonderful! You did it again. You always make us feel that we are part of your family. --J&S, Kansas

The food has been wonderful - even with accommodating my food allergies. We wish Brian and Debbie many successful years here. We'll be back again! Love and light. --B&M, Virginia
Two nights here very glorious! Not enough time at this great place. I loved sitting in front of the fire reading, the hospitality, extra touches (wonderful lavender soap, chai tea, coffee & pumpkin squares). When breakfast arrived I thought I died and went to heaven (sausage apple pancake soufflé, chocolate raspberry crepes, bananas in orange cream all so well presented and delicious). Thank you. What a fabulous place! --LJP, Massachusetts

What a restful evening and morning we had. Your presence at just the right times was appreciated! A very warm and inviting atmosphere! Great little touches like the robes and slippers that are too bulky to pack, and great smelling soaps. Your thought hasn't gone unnoticed. This is just what we were needing. Thank you for proving it at such an affordable price. --K&J, Colorado
Thank you for a very comfortable, cozy and pampered stay. This is our first bed and breakfast stay and will be the standard for future B&B vacations. Debbie, your cooking is incredible. Our taste buds are very happy! We slept well, met great people and felt at home. We woke up this morning and said "This place is going to be hard to leave". --B&T, Illinois

stride. Thanks again for a great weekend. --JG,

wonderful accommodations and host. We actually looked
forward to breakfast and then the wonderful dessert

We were made to feel so welcome even with 2 little
ones. We couldn't have asked for a better place
to say! It really made our vacation! Thank you!

I fell in love with this place! The Great Room/Dining
Room area induces a sense of calm and connection
with "mother nature". The stone fireplace
and leather furniture is so comfy and cozy. I LOVE
MY BEDROOM, "The Midland": the 4 poster
bed nestled in the 4 pine walls and ceiling is so
romantic, rustic, and warm. You are a warm, wonderful
host. Greatly exceeded my expectations; I'll be
back!!" --SP, Illinois
This poem was written by one of our guests...
"Ode to the Rocky Mountain Lodge" -
A perfect haven in the pines
To Rocky Mountain Lodge from our hearts to thine
Many thanks for the time spent there
Filling our souls with cool Mountain Air
Breakfast so fabulous it's a work of art
Served by Debbie with so much heart
The scent of pine fill the air
Comfort provided with loving care
A fire each evening brightly burning
We will remember this time with yearning
To be mountain girls if only for a space in time
Rocky Mountain Lodge has been simply divine.
