The name "Manitou" is Algonquin for "Great Spirit" and can be traced from the area's rich Indian culture. Legend says the Ute Indian tribes from the mountains met the Arapaho and other plains tribes in peace to worship Manitou, the god that breathed into the spring waters to create their natural effervescence and curative powers. In 1868, Dr. Bell fell in love with this gentle little valley and its soda springs, envisioning Manitou Springs as a health spa resort. Visitors have been enjoying the little jewel at the foot of Pikes Peak and its mineral water "Springs" ever since.

The town blossoms with elegant hotels, Victorian homes, pure mountain air, excellent restaurants, wonderful shopping, a flourishing art community, all protected by a National Historic District. Enjoy quiet walks, sipping the mineral waters, exploring castles, shopping, or trips to Garden of the Gods. With in a mile of the Inn explore Cave of the Winds, Cliff Dwellings and, of course, Pikes Peak, by foot, bike, car or train. Manitou and Pikes Peak Railway (COG Railway)
