Manitou Springs condo description

Welcome to our Skylight Loft in the historic Manitou Springs Spa Building. You’ll feel it’s rich history the minute you enter the newly renovated building with its lofts, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, and wine stores in the center of Manitou Springs.

A great place to base your trip and explore the Pikes Peak region and the mountains of Colorado.

The Skylight Loft is spacious (about 950 sq. ft.) features a spectacular 9 x 15 ft skylight––who knew they built skylights 90 years ago? This loft within a loft offers a unique space above the bedroom perfect for reading and relaxing.

French doors ensconced from above and on both sides with panels of paned windows opens onto your private balcony with a bistro table inviting you over for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. The mountain views are spectacular, and just below are boutiques, galleries, and award-winning restaurants. Around the corner is the historic arcade with children and adults playing boardwalk games and little ones riding a large selection of coin-operated rides. Listen to the bubbling water and walk across the old stone bridge that spans Fountain Creek, and you’re on Manitou Avenue right in the middle of town!

Back inside the loft, check out the original tile floors, the corner gas fireplace, and the elegant kitchen with glass-accented maple cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a large center island. The loft is furnished with high-end contemporary but comfortable furniture and supplied with sumptuous linens and bath supplies. A stackable washer and dryer are tucked into a convenient laundry closet.

The very large tiled bathroom includes a spacious glass shower and whirlpool tub. And after a busy day you’ll find respite in the comfortable bedroom. More sleeping area is provided on the leather sofa bed in the living room. A Flat Screen TV sits above the fireplace and Free Hi-Speed Wireless internet service is provided.

But that’s not all. . . there are two roof top terraces for the residents and our guests. They are spacious, and the views are inspiring. The creek bubbles below and 11 mineral springs are within easy walking distance of the loft––they all taste different and in years past they were celebrated for their healing powers. You’ll want to try all of them and bring back some for making lemonade. An interesting bit of trivia––the first carbonated drink was made from the Manitou Springs.

Parking is not always easy in our charming mountain town, but if you stay at the loft you’ll have your own designated parking spot in our well-lighted covered, attached garage.

Manitou Springs is an art community––you may be fortunate enough to see a local artist painting one of our beautiful landscapes. And in case biking, hiking, people watching, shopping, and hanging out at Soda Springs Park (just steps away) haven’t exhausted your energy, you’re welcome to our workout room on the lower level.

The loft is supplied with books and information about area attractions and special events, and we try to meet each of you personally––our offices are just down the street. Manitou Springs will capture your heart and you will not want to leave!

We are members of our local and very informative Chamber of Commerce.

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Dick and Edna love to travel and after transplanting to the Springs area in the mid seventies are excited to share this amazing area. Dick is an architect and Edna publishes information for parents and teachers.

                          Why the Owner Chose Manitou Springs:
                          We think Manitou Springs is a world-class destination. The loft provides an urban space in a small mountain town, and it's right in the center of all of the activities from hiking to shopping. The Manitou Spa Building provides lots of history and it's gratifying to know that although the space has different functions than it once did, it's even more beautiful, inviting, and inspiring than ever.
