Why Ann and Chuck Benson chose Cascade
We purchased this property in 2007 after Ann had a dream of an adobe guesthouse that welcomed travelers and people in need of healing and restoration. The Sanctuary of the Rose officially opened its doors a year later.

Anniversary Get Away
The cottage was just what we were looking for. It was quiet, clean, and a little bit funky. Close to activities we were interested in. Anne was very nice, greeted us, and made sure we were settled in. We will definitely return.
My daughter and granddaughter had a lovely visit over the weekend they stayed.
We had a wonderful stay at The Sanctuary of the Rose! This cottage is exceptional, full of charm and comfort. Quiet location but close to area attractions. Property hosts, Ann and Chuck, are lovely people!
Charming place/good location
Sanctuary of the Rose is a lovely little house with lots of personal, interesting touches. It’s easy to access both the high mountains as well as Manitou and Colorado Springs. Ann and her husband were delightful to deal with if needed but not intrusive. I would highly recommend a stay here!
We are directly across the street from the start of the Pikes Peak Highway to the top of Pikes Peak. We are within easy driving distance of Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, Garden of the Gods, and Cave of the Winds (all between a 5-15 minutes drive) and many hiking trails!
