The Nature Place

We host groups from all over the country and the world mostly for team & leadership development, natural history exploration, reunions and occasionally a wedding. We feel remote on our 6,000 acres although we are only 1 hour from Colorado Springs. We specialize in helping customize events. Most client groups are repeat (70% +) and many of these visit with different participants multiple times a year, and have done so for 15-20+ years.

You will need to contact them directly to determine whether or not they can accommodate you. TripAdvisor probably isn't the best way to contact this retreat center. Good luck.

Hi Frozeninmn, Yes, each apartment has its own bathroom, and most have been recently renovated!

"As a retreat center, don't expect a standard hotel room. The rooms are much better, more like a suite."
