Welcome!


Welcome to Manitou Springs and the historic El Colorado Lodge. Since 1926 the Lodge has been a meeting place for families and friends, gaining a reputation for comfort, cleanliness, and western hospitality. The Lodge is one of the oldest continually operating businesses in Manitou.


Originally built in 1926, the Historic El Colorado Lodge is one of Manitou Springs' oldest continually operating businesses. The interiors of our adobe cabins have been renovated and modernized blending the rustic charm of wood-burning fireplaces and lodge-pole beamed ceilings with the contemporary comfort of air-conditioning, phones, color cable-TV, microwaves, and small refrigerators. Each of our 27 units is individual and unique.  Many have ceiling beams of lodge-pole pine. Some cabins have wood-burning fireplaces for visitors traveling in the fall and winter months.


At the foot of Pikes Peak, our four-acre grounds are dotted with pine and blue spruce, picnic tables and grills, and picturesque cabins. Our large heated swimming pool, centralized hot tub, horseshoe pit, shuffleboard court, playground, volleyball court, outdoor pavilion and indoor meeting room make the El Colorado Lodge a fun and relaxing get-away. You can also enjoy rafting and horseback riding during your stay. We're located near the US Air Force Academy (USAFA), Fort Carson, Garden of the Gods, and minutes from Colorado Springs. We specialize in family reunions and large and small groups, including weddings.
