Welcome to our Skylight Loft in the historic Manitou Springs Spa Building in the heart of downtown Manitou Springs. Our loft is a spacious contemporary loft offering luxury, convenience and affordability and is located on the second floor of a historic building, built in 1918 and restored in 2007. There is an elevator from the main lobby on Manitou Avenue to all floors.
The Skylight Loft is 930 sq. ft., featuring designer furnishings and a Colorado aesthetic, as well as, a spectacular 9x15 skylight offering a unique space above the queen bedroom with a day bed for one person or perfect for reading and relaxing. The leather sofa in the living room also becomes a queen bed.
In the building, you will find lofts, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and wine stores in the center of town. This is a great place to base your trip and explore the Pikes Peak region and the mountains of Colorado.
French doors ensconced from above and on both sides with panels of paned windows open onto your private balcony with a bistro table and chairs 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 Ave. 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 with additional seats for dining. 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 a whirlpool tub. And after a busy day you'll enjoy the comfortable bedroom. More sleeping area is provided on the leather sofa bed in the living room and the daybed in the loft above the bedroom. A flat screen TV and a gas fireplace compliment the living room and free hi-speed wireless internet service is provided.
But that's not all...there are two roof top terraces for the residents and guests. They are large 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. 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-lit and secure attached garage.
Manitou Springs is an art community and you may be fortunate enough to see a local artist painting one of our beautiful landscapes. 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 use our fitness center on the lower level.
We are members of our local Chamber of Commerce, www.manitousprings.org, a convenient website for information on local shops, galleries, restaurants and events.
