Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort
The Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort is a family-owned, vintage hotel with a western theme. The Buff is your base camp for adventure and a great place to relax after a long day in the saddle or exploring the sites of the Pikes Peak region.
Located on a popular designated bike route connecting Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, the Buff is in close proximity to countless miles of biking trails at the base of Pikes Peak, and are less than a mile from Garden of the Gods Park.
You don’t need to be a cyclist to stay at the Buff. The Buffalo Lodge is the perfect location to begin any adventure in the Pikes Peak Region and everyone is welcome! There are a plethora of amazing tourist attractions and activities to enjoy during your stay.
Torie Giffin, the Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort’s visionary and intrepid leader, has always led with her heart and passion for others. Hospitality is at her core. So, when she decided to create a resort for cyclists there was no question she was going to make it great.
The vision started in 2015. There have been hundreds of conversations with friends and community and cycling advocates over more than a few cups of coffee and Colorado’s famous brews. There are some wonderful hotels in Colorado Springs but none that caters specifically to the outdoor adventurer and especially the bicyclist. These dreams, paired with a statewide bicycling campaign, Gov. John Hickenlooper’s declaration that Colorado will become the best state in the U.S.A. for cycling, and a realization of Outdoor Recreation as an economic driver, seemed the perfect storm and an inspiration to be a part of the transformation.
After scouring many inviting locales, developed or not, Torie learned the historic Buffalo Lodge was for sale and it seemed to perfectly fit her vision because of location, price, history and so much more. It was love at first sight. Although there were quite a few issues to secure the property and a few setbacks, Torie and her family bought it on June 17, 2016 with the plans for refreshing and transforming the Buffalo Lodge into a haven for cyclists and adventurers, and got straight to work!
