Against a mountain backdrop, the Broadmoor area has some of the city’s most spectacular original mansions. Central to the area is the five-star Broad-moor hotel with championship golf courses, a spa and multiple-star restaurants. Broadmoor area housing is some of the priciest and most sought after in the region, ranging up into the multimillion dollars. Beautiful homes and townhomes, many in gated communities, cover hilly, wood-ed areas running from the resort up the mountainside to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, rated one of the best in the country, and up Cheyenne Mountain. The area around the Broadmoor hotel property includes some historic residences.
