The Cliff House at Pikes Peak has 54 beautifully appointed hotel guest rooms and luxury suites, each uniquely decorated in the style of the late 1800’s, complemented with modern flair and luxury. Each room is individual in character and may include special features such as gas fireplaces, two person spa tubs, steam showers and towel warmers.

You see, as the premier historic hotel of the Greater Colorado Springs area, our history is forever intertwined with what we are today. In fact, The Cliff House is older than the State of Colorado itself!

Sitting high atop our brand new East Addition, this majestic meeting space soars above Manitou Springs. With incredible mountain vistas, fully retractable walls for an open-air breeze and gently bathed in light, The Pavilion is setting the new standard for inspiring meeting spaces.

The Cliff House is once again one of Colorado’s finest luxury hotels. Nestled at the foot of majestic Pikes Peak, we’ve kept all the trappings of Victorian elegance and luxury while becoming a leader in innovative room features and state-of-the-art technology. Here, it’s a seamless blend of old-world glamour and contemporary comfort.

Look What the Cat Brought In exists to care for cats that require longer shelter stays than a traditional shelter can provide, securing adoption when each cat is healthy and emotionally ready.  2013, a third of the cats we rescued came from extreme hoarding situations.

Our cats come from hoarding situations, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Regions, Fort Carson Animal Rescue, Second Chance Animal Rescue Foundation, and rescues in Arizona, Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas.

We were the first shelter in Colorado Springs exclusively for cats. We pull cats from the Humane Society who need more time to become adoptable and are at risk for euthanasia. In addition, we accept medically needy cats from Southern Colorado for rehab and treatment.  Our actions improve the local live release rate, while giving these cats a new chance at life.

As a limited-admission shelter for special-needs cats with visual limitations (blind or partially blind), agility problems or FIV-positive status, older cats and cats from hoarding homes, we face unique challenges. A recent dental procedure cost $1,700, and total medical expenses run about $45,000 per year. About 400 cats a year move to forever homes when they are well-adjusted, adoptable companions, and the shelter can house up to 100 cats at a time.

DID YOU KNOW?
In 2015, we rescued one-third of our hard-to-place, special-needs cats from hoarders.

Cats become Sommeliers!

Recently some of our cats decided that life at the shelter was becoming dull and they needed a new hobby. Catnip was not enough, so they asked the advice of Buster, the master sommelier and opened their own wine label!
