One of the Broadmoor’s newest experiences sits at 9,200 feet atop Cheyenne Mountain. Cloud Camp was built in the exact spot that Spencer Penrose’s Cheyenne Lodge existed in the early 20th century. Nothing can compare to the absolute amazing 360-degree views.
Designed with an American West feel, the main lodge at Cloud Camp is a sprawling 8,000 square feet. In addition, there are 11 one and two bedroom guest cabins along with six accommodations in the lodge and an adjacent “honeymoon cabin”.
This magnificent destination is one of Olson Plumbing & Heating Co.’s most challenging feats to date. Olson Plumbing & Heating designed and built the water system that is approximately four miles long and raises the water over 3,000 feet in elevation from the connection at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo all the way to the summit of Cloud Camp!
The Lodge has a 5,000-gallon water storage tank complete with a pumping system and domestic water system. This supplies water to The Lodge, cabins and mule barns.
The Lodge is heated by an electric hot water boiler and in-floor radiant heating system. There is also a self-contained sewer and septic system for the entire complex.
In addition, there is a 1,000-gallon propane system that supplies the fire pits and fireplaces.
The Fire Tower Suite sits approximately 150 feet above The Lodge. Although it sits on solid granite it has all of the same modern-day amenities as the other cabins.
