Will we have a view from our room?

Club Rooms and Suites in the main Lodge offer premium views of the Garden of the Gods Park and Pikes Peak. Our Cottages and Casitas were not designed with a view in mind, but rather as an option for more spacious accommodations with modern 4- or 5-piece bathrooms and the guarantee of adjoining rooms when 2 or 3 of the bedrooms in the same unit are reserved. The rows of Cottages and Casitas have a community feel to them and are set back farther on the mesa behind our privately owned Villas.


My flight arrives in Colorado Springs early in the day. Can I get an early check-in?

Guaranteed check-in is at 4:00 PM. You are welcome to arrive earlier, but we are not able to guarantee that a room will be available. If we have a room ready at the time of your arrival, we will check you in to it. If not, we will take your cell phone number and alert you once a room is ready. Meanwhile, you may begin enjoying the amenities of the property and the nearby area. If you would like a guaranteed early check-in, then you have the option of reserving a guest room the night before your arrival.
