Colorado: View from the Clouds

Proudly perched on the summit of Cheyenne Mountain and 3,000 feet above its parent property, the highly-acclaimed Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, sits a new wilderness property – Cloud Camp.

Cloud Camp guests are transported seven miles up Cheyenne Mountain from The Broadmoor’s “base camp” in a luxury SUV, by mule or, for the truly fit and adventurous, by hiking up! However you arrive, the awe-inspiring view of the Colorado Rockies that awaits you at the top will take your breath away.

The resort’s hub for food and activity is an 8,000 square-foot rustic lodge with hand-hewn beams, authentic Native American art, enormous stone fireplaces and an expansive wrap-around deck where you can take in the amazing 360-degree panoramic views. Guest accommodations include 12 cozy and beautifully appointed cabins and seven lodge rooms to snuggle into at the end of the day. The romantic “honeymoon suite” has its own private mountaintop escape overlooking the city lights of Colorado Springs. All this, coupled with unparalleled customer service and the world-renowned cuisine of The Broadmoor, make Cloud Camp an amazing choice for an intimate destination wedding or romantic honeymoon getaway.

Cloud Camp is the perfect location for a couple whose vision is a casual, rustic destination wedding getaway complete with exceptional service. Open during the months of May through October, there are many mountain activities offered on-site and the stargazing is unparalleled. One not-to-miss activity is a visit
to the hot tub that sits on an outcrop with a million-dollar view.

Regular shuttles are available to guests so you can easily take advantage of the amenities of The Broadmoor including the spa, restaurants, golf courses, shopping or to enjoy nearby sites in and around Colorado Springs. Our picks would be to visit the outstanding Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, hopping on a Jeep tour to the spectacular Garden of the Gods park or summiting nearby Pikes Peak via the Cog Railway.

The wedding professionals of The Broadmoor add a wealth of experience to make planning a destination wedding at Cloud Camp seamless, even at 9,200 feet of elevation! If your honeymoon or destination wedding dream is a getaway close to the stars, Cloud Camp may be the perfect choice.
