Blue Skies Inn invites you to enjoy fall colors in ColoradoTwo-Two-Two at Blue Skies Inn in Manitou Springs
During this time of COVID-19, Blue Skies Inn has designed a two-two-two way to stay. Two days are left empty in a room before a guest stay, the guest stays at least two days, then the room is blocked another two days for it to “cool off” if anyone has traveled while sick. That is the only technique the innkeepers could add to their usual O.C.D. cleaning regimen! The inn was designed many years ago so that each suite has its own HVAC system - air doesn’t mix between suites. So until a vaccine is developed for the current virus, it will be two-two-two all the time at Blue Skies Inn. Breakfast has always been served as room service to each guest’s door, and that is still the way that a hot breakfast is delivered. A picnic basket with fresh fruit, a hot egg dish, freshly-baked muffins, coffee, juice and milk is packaged in disposable one-use containers. That way, a basket can be taken on a picnic to the woods or enjoyed in a personal sitting room while wearing one’s jammies!
