We welcome you to our Skylight Loft in the historic Manitou Springs Spa Building. Our Loft is perfect for two adults and up two two children.
You’ll feel it’s rich history the minute you enter the spacious marbled lobby featuring an elegant fountain. The entire building has been renovated into lofts, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, and wine stores. It’s in the center of Manitou Springs.
The loft, offered for the first time as a vacation rental, features a spectacular 9 x 15 foot skylight––who knew they built skylights 90 years ago? This loft within the loft offers a... unique space above the bedroom perfect for curling up with a book or listening to music.
After looking up at the skylight your eyes are directed forward to French doors ensconced on both sides with a panel of paned windows. What lies ahead is your private balcony with a bistro table inviting you over for a cup of coffee, or a glass of lemonade or wine. You’ll look up at beautiful mountains, down at boutiques and galleries, and just around the corner you'll see a part of the historic arcade with children and adults playing boardwalk games and little ones riding a large selection of coin-operated rides.
Walk across the old stone bridge that spans Fountain Creek, and you’re on Manitou Avenue with more stores, galleries and restaurants, and more people looking at the mountains that surround the entire town. When you step back inside the loft, check out the original subway tile floors, the granite corner gas fireplace, and the upgraded kitchen with glass-accented maple cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a large center island complete with bar stools.
The loft is furnished with high-end contemporary but comfortable furniture, is supplied with sumptuous linens, and we've paid attention to every detail. A stackable washer and dryer are tucked into a convenient laundry closet.
When you’re not relaxing or eating in the open living/dining room, you can bathe in the elegant whirlpool bathroom. And after a busy day you’ll find respite in the comfortable bedroom. More sleeping area is provided on the leather sofa bed in the living room. A Flat Screen TV sits above the fireplace and Free Hi-Speed Wireless internet service is provided.
But that’s not all. . . in addition to the private balcony off the living room, the Manitou Springs Spa has two roof top terraces for the residents and our guests. They are spacious, and the views are inspiring. There are eleven mineral springs within easy walking distance of the loft... They all taste different and in years past they were celebrated for their healing powers. You’ll want to try all of them and bring back some for making lemonade––we’ll supply the lemons––you grab your water bottle or pitcher and bring back the water. An interesting bit of trivia––the first carbonated drink was made from the Manitou Springs.
Manitou Springs is an art community––you may be fortunate enough to see a local artist painting one of our beautiful landscapes. And in case biking, hiking, people watching, shopping, wading in and hanging out at Soda Springs Park (just steps away) haven’t exhausted your energy, you’re welcome to our workout room on the lower level.
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-lighted covered garage.
You can tell we love this place. We've supplied the room with books and information about area attractions and special events. Though we will not always be available to personally manage the space and may not get to meet each one of you, our offices are just down the street. We work here every day and we’re confident you’re going to appreciate Manitou Springs and the friendly, interesting people who visit and reside here.
We are members of our local and very informative Chamber of Commerce.Read more
