The history of Manitou Springs is forever linked with the springs around which it was founded. The numerous natural soda mineral springs have attracted mankind for centuries. The Nations of the Ute, Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Kiowa were all frequent visitors to this neutral ground known for the therapeutic effects of drinking and bathing in the mineral water. Western explorers' reports attracted interest in the area with influential doctors of the time writing glowingly of the health benefits of the mineral waters.

"We enjoyed our stay with you very much. The accommodation was perfect for us and we really appreciate you letting us stay with our two girls. It was so nice to be in the heart of Manitou Springs and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. Several of our friends have asked us where we stayed and we have passed your information on to them. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality."
"Thanks again for the wonderful accommodations, for your gracious hospitality, for a comfortable environment in a resplendent Inn. Avoiding hyperbole is difficult, as there are few places where a happy Inn joins its Innkeepers in warm welcome. And what an unexpected bonus you both added to my visit! Your knowledge of Manitou Springs' history, of the Rocky Mountain area, of Colorado Springs, of Colorado, including its plains, helped me to understand and appreciate my surroundings. The Avenue Hotel's location, also, was a benefit as I could walk out the front door, stroll down Manitou Avenue, choose from an array of eclectic shops and restaurants or simply enjoy the Rocky Mountains."
"Just wanted to drop a line to let you and Randy both know how much my sisters, mom and I enjoyed our stay at your beautiful B&B."

"What a pleasure it was staying in your beautiful bed and breakfast. We came up to celebrate our marriage and have some quiet time after all the hustle and bustle of wedding day. Driving into Manitou and finding the inviting Victorian home was calming. We had never been to a B&B before, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. The outcome was great. We had a wonderful spacious room, with a bed that was as comfortable as ours at home, and a private bathroom. Breakfast aromas woke us to a wonderful treat in the morning, and the company of our hostess (Gwen) was like staying with an old friend. We had also purchased the romance package. We thoroughly enjoyed the massage, homemade appetizers and the wine. We highly recommend your B&B to all our friends. And we can't wait to see you next June for our anniversary. Thanks to you for everything, we had a wonderful experience."
"Whatever you came to Manitou Springs for, the Avenue B&B is a great place to stay. Gwen and Randy are terrific hosts. If it can be done, they will do everything they can to make it happen for you."
