Property description

Romantic, unique and private 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 your private hot tub.

***New photos coming soon!*** The newly renovated Cascade Room is truly a Rocky Mountain Spa getaway. This room features a jetted tub and shower with a stunning etched glass surround depicting the Rocky Mountains. The cozy sitting area faces the wood burning fireplace and flat screen television with complimentary Netflix movies. Awaken to the towering pines outside your window.

Fountain Creek ambles through the back of the property and we encourage our guests to enjoy a bit of solitude sitting by the stream.

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 Caboose Inn, you will be afforded the ultimate in hospitality. Breakfast is delivered to you in your suite or ask about our 'Do Not Disturb' package which features a continental breakfast placed in your refrigerator prior to your arrival, to be enjoyed at your leisure in the morning.

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: One never knows where life will lead them! After living in Southern California for most of my life, I could never have dreamed that my journey would lead me to a beautiful inn tucked away in the mountains of Colorado. I have always loved entertaining, so innkeeping seemed like a great new career. Not only is cooking a passion, like my grandma, I just love to feed people! Using local and organic products as much as possible, I like to prepare food that is healthy, delicious and delightful to look at. In my spare time I can be found tending my flower and vegetable gardens. My little dogs Maggie, Buddy and Roxy are always close by. We try to get a walk or hike in daily. Late afternoons you will usually find us down by the stream. When I call "happy hour!" they know exactly where to go!

Why the Owner Chose Cascade, Cascade-Chipita Park, CO, USA:
I have many fond memories as a young girl taking family vacations in the mountains. The sound of the trees swaying in the wind and the smell of the pines created such a sense of appreciation for all that nature has to offer. One can't help but take a deep breath and relax just a bit. Plus, the opportunity to observe so much wildlife on a daily basis was irresistible. I have encountered numerous deer peacefully grazing in the yard just a few feet from me. Twice a bobcat has been spotted on the property and of course it is always a great day if you get to see a bear!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
After looking at all different kinds of bed and breakfast properties, this property definitely spoke to me. I love looking up and being surrounded by mountains covered by beautiful pines, spruces and aspens. No matter what season or what the weather, I never tire of the views. Having Fountain Creek run through the property was definitely a bonus. My thoughts immediately turned to visions of my grandchildren splashing around, skipping rocks and floating boats down the stream. I love sitting quietly by the water, observing a fox stopping to take a drink or the robins taking a nice cold bath.
