Any time of the year, the Fortress at Pike's Peak provides a fantastic getaway for 1 to 12 people. The reason it is so popular is the location, views, comfort, ambiance, and amenities and they are available all year long! It's a perfect getaway no matter what the season. April, May and June transition through a rebirth on the mountain. Experience the beauty and excitement that only mother nature can provide.
It has the best views in the area, some say anywhere, and you don't even have to go outside to see them. So stay cozy, yet feel like you're in the middle of it all! Every picture you see of views was taken from the deck! The Fortress provides a perfect environment for an unforgettable family vacation which you'll treasure forever. Our valued guests hate to leave and look forward to returning. Our views from inside the great room and deck are breathtaking! It is one of the only affordable properties in the region that offers views comparable to a scenic overlook. But you don't park there, take some pics, and drive on. You unpack and stay at this overlook!
This is a magical place and you'll feel it as soon as you arrive. This is where the "purple mountain majesties" reside from Katharine Lee Bate's "America the Beautiful'" . And you can sit in the living room and take in these magnificent views.
