The Lodge has an enviable location within the award-winning Flying Horse Club, built right at the ninth hole of the Tom Weiskopf–designed championship golf course. Each of the 40 spacious Rocky Mountains–meet–Tuscany rooms have views of the fairway or the front range of the Rocky Mountains and come furnished with private balconies or patios from which to enjoy them. But that’s not all: lodge guests have complete access to the plush amenities at Flying Horse, including the Grill restaurant, the golf course, the sprawling Athletic Club (with yoga studios, outdoor swimming pools, a kids’ club, and more), and a pampering spa.
In the Area
Breathe in that famous Colorado mountain air on one of the many outdoor excursions available around the resort. Start with the Garden of the Gods, a National Natural Landmark featuring towering ochre sandstone rock formations. Then explore the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, a series of fascinating structures built into the cliffs 700 years ago by the Anasazi people. From those great heights, head underground to the Cave of the Winds, where you can take guided tours of caves naturally festooned with crystals, stalagmites and stone columns.
How to Get There
The price is excellent for the amenities and Shawn McCord, the bartender extraordinare at the resort's restaurant is truly world class. The spa and athletic club staffers are great as are the restaurant servers. However, the very first experience one has is the lackluster staff at the hotel reception desk and they continue to be low energy throughout. Just one example: On my last day, the young man at the desk forgot my wake up call, which is unacceptable, especially because when I saw him at check out he was leaning back in his chair in the office staring into space. When I told him that I didn't get my wake-up call, he said, "Got it."
We decided to stay at the Lodge at Flying Horse and it turned out to be a great decision. We really liked everything about this place. Our room was great and so were all of the meals in the restaurants. I was easy to travel to our destination in Colorado Springs from this location. The views were beautiful. Easy to see Pike's Peak and USAFA. We did not golf but the course sure looked beautiful. We also thought the cost was just fine.
If your looking for a beautiful place to stay in Colorado Springs, this is the place. The service was first rate all the way. The architecture of the lodge and buildings is stunning. The restaurant and bar service is excellent. All the meals we ate there were outstanding. The room we stayed in was
large and the beds are very comfortable.
I got a massage in the spa, it was wonderful. There was a wedding taking place and the grounds and facilities made it breathtaking for the wedding.
Staying here helped made our trip special.
Just stayed there with my husband and 3 boys (16&20). Hotel was beautiful, & quiet. This hotel is located inside the flying horse community, on the north end of Colorado Springs. 20-30 min from garden of the gods and pikes peak !! We weren’t there long enough to enjoy the pool and other activities. Indoor basketball, adult pool, kids splash pads, 2 hot tubs, spa, tennis, drinking range and putting green. Perfect place to rest after sightseeing all day. Restaurant is located in clubhouse adjacent to hotel but they do have room service. My only complaint is I wish there were more choices in restaurants there is only one. The food was good, a bit pricy tho. However you are close enough to drive to many restaurants in Colorado Springs. Views are simply beautiful!!! Mountain or golf course. Mountain View’s overlook parking lot so get the second floor. You won’t mind the cars. Quiet. !! I would definitely stay there again
I really enjoyed my time at this resort. The facilities are very complete, but it is not a huge complex. It would be a great setting for a smaller business' retreat or business meeting. The golf course is well-maintained as are the other facilities and the rooms. We really enjoyed our breakfasts that were included in the package we selected. The views of Pike's Peak from many of the rooms are very nice.
