We recently purchased the former Red Crags Estates properties in Manitou Springs, Colorado. We are making some changes to the overall usage of the facilities. We will be shifting the emphasis from a traditional bed & breakfast to a retreat center for healing & creative arts.
We will be adding yoga, meditation, & facilities for massage, acupuncture, & Ayurvedic treatments.
In our commitment to sustainability, we will be serving vegetarian food that is organic and locally sourced; our rooms will not have televisions and we will not be serving wine & cheese happy hours.
We are dedicated to providing a place for our guests to unplug from the fast pace of modern life and reconnect to their senses, Self, & nature.
While our vision is being birthed, we will not be taking new reservations until our renovations are complete. We appreciate your understanding & hope you will consider Sun Mountain Shala for your future retreat needs.
If you have a current reservation and have questions, please call 719-685-4515 and leave a message.
