Meet Our Resort Dog & Learn About Our Pet-Friendly Colorado Springs Hotel!

Cheyenne is a lovable rescue pup from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region. She is a 5-month old weighing in at 55 pounds, which is nothing compared to the 150 - 160 pounds of fun and fur that she will be when fully grown.

To celebrate Cheyenne’s arrival, Cheyenne Mountain Resort is proud to announce the Cheyenne’s Bed & Biscuit Club, which includes a variety of pet amenities in a convenient welcome kit pet owners and their four-legged companions receive when checking into our pet-friendly Colorado Springs hotel!

Treat your furry friend to a drool worthy selection of welcome pet amenities, including:

- Food and water bowl
- Washable dog blanket
- Eco-friendly dog toy
- Dog treats
- Courtesy clean-up bags
- Stylish dog tag

Cheyenne has also jumped into her role as Canine Concierge by providing pet-owners with a brochure highlighting area pet hotspots like veterinarians, shops and groomers. Cheyenne has also shared her favorite walking routes, dog-friendly cafes and parks as well as insider trips for a howling good time at Cheyenne Mountain Resort.

A one-time fee of $50 per canine friend* will be charged to accommodate this extra special dog friendly experience and doggy welcome gift bag.
