Dear Guest,

We recently purchased the former Red Crags Estates properties in Manitou Springs, Colorado. We are making some changes to the overall usage of the facilities. We will be shifting the emphasis from a traditional bed & breakfast to a retreat center for healing & creative arts.

We will be adding yoga, meditation, & facilities for massage, acupuncture, & Ayurvedic treatments.

In our commitment to sustainability, we will be serving vegetarian food that is organic and locally sourced; our rooms will not have televisions and we will not be serving wine & cheese happy hours.

We are dedicated to providing a place for our guests to unplug from the fast pace of modern life and reconnect to their senses, Self, & nature.

While our vision is being birthed, we will not be taking new reservations until our renovations are complete. We appreciate your understanding & hope you will consider Sun Mountain Shala for your future retreat needs.

If you have a current reservation and have questions, please call 719-685-4515 and leave a message. 

Welcome to Red Crags Bed & Breakfast Inn

Our historic 1874 B&B located in Manitou Springs, Colorado offers style and elegance for Pikes Peak area visitors.

Continuing a long tradition of hospitality, Red Crags Bed & Breakfast Inn’s renown spans more than 100 years.  Serving as a bed and breakfast since 1989, this celebrated 4-story Victorian manor envelopes the discerning guest in a time of beauty and impeccable atmosphere.

The main house of the inn is more than 7,000 square feet and presides over a 2-acre estate overlooking Manitou Valley.   From the B&B, Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods may be seen, providing the guest with a unique perspective of the area.

Stepping inside the manor is like stepping back in time. The main floor common area is characterized by lovingly preserved antiques, hardwood floors, and soaring ceilings.  Gather around the fireplace for some conversation in the parlor, which also features a large bar and antique piano.  On a sunny day, take some time to relax in the solarium and enjoy views of the surrounding mountains and Pikes Peak. A rare cherry wood Eastlake fireplace is the focal point of the formal dining room. All guestrooms are appointed with king-size beds with additional amenities as wood or gas-burning fireplaces, jetted tubs, antique ball and claw tubs or other aspects unique to providing our guests with live history.Outside, sit on the covered decks or walk through the beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens. You can relax by the gurgling brook. Meander to the bluff and take in the best view of the Manitou Valley. Beneath the Colorado blue skies, our air is clean and clear virtually every day of the year.



Notes Box:
Built as a wellness clinic, you will enjoy the “doorbell” buttons in the main house that flag the nurse’s calling station to this day. Winner of two Manitou Springs Historic Preservation Commission Awards, we endeavor to maintain every aspect of this estate in accordance with the original late 19th century atmosphere..
