Turn Right at the Blue Skies Arch and cross the stream



Directions to


How to find your Colorado wedding: Pikes Peak Wedding is located right in the heart of Colorado. This is where the plains meet the mountains, and, oh!, what mountains they are!

Pikes Peak was the inspiration for the song, "America, the Beautiful." Living right here in her shadow is an amazing thing.

Blue Skies Inn Bed and Breakfast is just a mile from the famous trail that goes up the mountain, and there's a cog railway, too. Some folks choose to drive to the summit. However you get there, it will be a memorable part of your stay.
Come to the Heart of Colorado!
