I'm torn on this one, so first the good. The property is beautiful! They have great trails on the property and you can wander around behind the houses. You'll discover chairs and tables here and there, so you can bring your coffee and enjoy some quiet time. You'll see deer roaming around the property, but they won't bother you. Definitely explore the property with your camera! The views from Red Crags are awesome, as it is set above the town of Manitou Springs. The owners and the staff are nice and very helpful. Josh is a huge asset to them. Whenever we needed something, the staff was there to help, even beyond what was necessary. The breakfasts are delicious. We loved our room and the fact that we could actually open the windows, feel a cool breeze, and still have privacy. Our bed was so comfortable and we loved having free Wi-Fi and flat screen TV. We even loved our shower.
Now for the things we didn't like. If you check in on a Saturday, you'll kind of get lost in the shuffle if there is a wedding going on. And, it sounds like they have a wedding every Saturday. If you are there on a weekend, it sounds like you can't book in the main house of Rockledge because it's only for wedding guests. But that's probably good, because you don't want to stay where there is a wedding going on while you're trying to relax.
Our biggest issue, however, was the lack of attention in our house (Onaledge B&B), and we assume it's because we were there during the week. If we wanted the nightly wine and cheese, we had to walk over to the main house, Rockledge. If we wanted the nightly snack, we had to walk over to Rockledge. This bothered us because we initially weren't aware of that. We thought it would be served in every house. Our first two nights, we were wondering why there wasn't cheese and crackers and snacks as promised. Also, the living room in our house had the same Saturday paper on the coffee table the whole time we were there. Did we really have to walk to the main house just to read the daily paper? Should we have to ask for the daily paper for our house? I think if there are at least 3 rooms booked in your house, you won't have a problem. But, if only one or two rooms are booked during the week, you might feel neglected. We understand that Rockledge is the main house, but don't forget about the people in the others!
Overall, we would stay there again. There are very few places to stay in the area that aren't old hotels or motels that were built before the 1970's. I did a lot of research before choosing Onaledge B&B at Red Crags, and I'm still glad we did. It was spacious, clean, and run by friendly people. But, if you want to be right in the action, you need to stay in Rockledge rather than the two other houses on the property.
