Cripple Creek, Colorado

Stay at a Cripple Creek bed and breakfast when visiting this historic town in the Pikes Peak Area of the Colorado Rockies.

Gold was discovered in 1878 by a ranch hand, transforming the sleepy community of Cripple Creek into one of the world’s richest gold camps. The mines attracted thousands of treasure seekers yielding millions of dollars into the early 1900s. Today, you can take a tour of a mine to learn how the gold was extracted.

Visit the Pikes Peak Heritage Center and discover the region’s fascinating history, recreation opportunities, and cultural attractions.

See the Rocky Mountains the way the explorers did, on horseback. The area offers riding opportunities from a few minutes to all-day excursions on forest trails or across vast meadows.

Go on one of the numerous scenic biking tours of the region. Tours range from tame social rides, to trails through the forest, to challenging mountain climbs.

Within a short drive, you can visit the Royal Gorge in Canon City, the Cave of the Winds in Manitou, the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, or the Dinosaur Museum in Woodland Park.

Whatever your reason for visiting, experience an alternative to accommodations in hotels by staying at a member inn of the Bed and Breakfasts of the Pikes Peak Area.
