This cabin worked beautifully! for our AF Academy graduation. We had off/on 18 people thru the week. We had space to be together comfortably, and yet space on the grounds to get away from each other for quieter moments.
Everyone loved the pine-mountain setting. As each family entered the lodge, people would exclaim "WOW!" and "how did you find this place?"
Wonderfully stocked kitchen which permitted us to serve a wide range of meals. We had as many as 20 people sit down to eat with us.
Very rustic--the good kind of rustic. Comfortable and have the feel of being away from the hustle/bustle of the congested Colo Springs.
Each bedroom was unique with one special feature (such as a balcony or extra bed).
Great location at the base of Pikes Peak, or within an hour, we could get to historical towns and the Academy. Great, unique places to eat within 10-15 minutes in Manitou Springs.
Owners live nearby and could answer our questions about caring for the lodge, yet far enough away, we didn't feel like we were being spied on.
The lodge was stocked well with towels, blankets, sheets, travel info, reading books, games, and the like. Plenty of parking, too.
For me, booking the Rocky Mountain Lodge for USAFA graduation was the bonus of the week.
The only drawback was our cell phones didn't work well in that location.
