We’re always catering to the visitors who stay with us, but this post is for the lucky locals who call Colorado Springs home. Cheyenne Mountain Resort can be your “home at home”, too. Known for our breathtaking mountain views, exceptional accommodations, fine dining, and countless amenities we offer the ultimate in Colorado staycationing.

Surrounded by the picturesque peaks of the Rocky Mountain Front Range, Cheyenne Mountain Resort boasts 40,000 square feet of meeting and event space, three restaurants, and 316 guest rooms in eight residential lodges, many with mountain views. There are three outdoor pools, an 18-hole golf course, a spa, a 9,000-square-foot fitness center, a kids' splash pad, and a supervised play space called Kids’ Korner.

What’s more, the resort is near all of Colorado Springs’ most popular attractions, from the Garden of the Gods, a natural landmark of iconic red rock formations, to Pike’s Peak, making the resort an ideal springboard for hikers, climbers, mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Spend the day exploring a 14er (a mountain peak with an elevation of at least 14,000 feet), go zip-lining, river rafting, travel back in time to the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, dive underground for a stalagmite tour at the Cave of the Winds, or simply stay put in the lap of tasteful luxury.

We’ve told you all about the Zoo that’s practically next door, but what many don’t realize is that Cheyenne Mountain Resort grants guests full access to the adjacent Country Club of Colorado, which offers a wide range of activities for the whole family. Visit the private, 35-acre lake where you could build sandcastles and enjoy a variety of free watersports from stand-up paddleboarding to sailboats.


If you and your family simply want to get out of the house for a while without investing in plane tickets or a long road trip, Cheyenne Mountain Resort is your answer. Guests call it “beautiful and immaculate,” and “the picture of quintessential Colorado”, but don’t take their word for it. Check our website for all the inviting details and give us a call with any questions. We’re happy to help you reserve your accommodation so you can get away by staying right at home in Colorado Springs.
