About the property

Effective 9/1/2018, the Blue Spruce will no longer have the breakfast option.

Romantic and unique getaway in the beautiful mountains at the base of Pikes Peak.

The luxuriously renovated Illinois Central Railroad caboose is the ultimate in privacy. The sitting area includes a flat screen television and dvds, kitchen area with refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. The separate bedroom area features a queen sized bed, claw-foot soaking tub and spacious bathroom area with shower. Enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine on your private deck. Soak your cares away in the hot tub.

Fountain Creek ambles through the back of the property and we encourage our guests to enjoy a bit of solitude sitting by the stream. The caboose sits on our 2 acre property, next to the main house and we have a large open area with a playground and a gas fire pit for guest use.

Cozy, peaceful, and relaxing, the Blue Spruce Caboose Inn is the perfect place for a couples getaway, honeymoon, anniversary or year-round vacation. Or bring your little train enthusiast for a special birthday surprise!

Numerous nearby activities and attractions include hiking (15 minute walk to our neighborhood waterfall), biking, fishing, golfing, shopping, the North Pole amusement park, performing arts theatres and creekside casual or gourmet dining. We are walking distance to the Wines of Colorado restaurant and Pikes Peak Winery, both featuring relaxing creekside patios and free wine tasting.

As our exclusive guests at the Blue Spruce Inn & Caboose, you will be afforded the ultimate in hospitality.

The Blue Spruce Inn & Caboose is the perfect all-around, year-round getaway. We look forward to your visit.

Totally Unique

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the caboose very unique experience. We really enjoyed our stay, wish it could have been longer. We had dinners on the deck. I think my favorite thing was the claw foot tub and chandelier. We would love to stay again sometime.

Very Fun Unique Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the caboose! It was a relaxing time as we celebrated our 31st anniversary and Deb's birthday. Check-in was easy and Connie was delightful to talk to. We had a great time sitting on the deck, drinking coffee and spending time with one another.

We went to Green Mountain Falls and hiked to Cable Falls, then we sat by the pond for awhile. We ate supper at The Loop Mexican restaurant in Manitou Springs, and the food was delicious! We ate locally made ice cream at Patsy's there in Manitou. Also, Woodland Park is a fun place to go, especially eating at The Hungry Bear.

Thank you, Connie, for making this little red caboose so cozy and comfy! We would definitely come back here sometime!

You won’t be sorry!!

  • 5 of 5

The caboose is adorable. Connie does a great job of making sure you have what you need. This place was perfect for our 2 day stay. Fun things to do near by and the hot tub was so nice. We’ll be recommending the caboose to everyone we know who plans a visit to Pike’s Peak or the Garden of the Gods. We loved it.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the caboose. It was such a wounderdul and unique experience. Everything about it was perfect. We enjoyed star gazing from the hot tub in the evening and drinking coffee on the deck in the morning. We especially loved the attention to the details in the decor.
