The opening of Kinship Landing in Colorado Springs has been officially pushed back to the end of January, early February, due to delays associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The goal of the new property is to offer a unique boutique hotel experience that brings together the best of international travel and local discovery.
Along with elevated bunk rooms, the most coveted room on property is an outdoor camping room that allows guests to bring their own camping gear to pitch a tent on the second floor with stunning mountain views and a private bathroom.
The trio of founders traveled the world and stayed at unique properties, from homes to hostels, bungalows and treehouses. They brought together the best of their experiences to create a place that acts as a gateway to Colorado Springs and a community hub to connect travelers and locals.
Located in the burgeoning New South End of Downtown Colorado Springs, Kinship Landing features 40 total rooms made up of 34 Suites and Junior Suites and six stunning 8-bed bunkrooms.
“Kinship Landing is the result of three friends who traveled the globe and brought learnings and loves home with them. Colorado Springs truly has it all, world class outdoor recreation, great climate, fabulous local craft beer and food. One thing we add to the mix is making the best of our little slice of the west easy to access, even on a whim. A gathering place for organic exchanges to take place between locals and travelers, friendships to flourish, and courageous adventures to begin – that’s what we’re after,” Bobby, Brooke and Nate, founder and creators of Kinship Landing, said in a statement.
Guests and locals won’t be greeted by a traditional check-in desk. Instead, a jade bar welcomes guests and draws their eye to hundreds of lush plants hanging from gabled ceilings. Just beyond the bar is Kinship Landing’s 1,000 square foot Greenhaus, a flexible event space that houses a light-filled urban jungle with heavy timber throughout. Additional first-floor features include community seating and gathering spaces, gear storage lockers for adventure enthusiasts, and the Homa Café and Bar. The property also features a massive outdoor patio beneath a vibrant mural from muralist Zane Prater.
One-of-a-kind rooms feature Tuft and Needle mattresses on custom-built beds, Brooklinen sheets, waterfall showerheads, local art, and custom millwork by Garrett Brown Designs. Lofted bunk rooms feature twin bed “pods,” privacy screens, a relaxing noise machine, and secure storage for stashing and charging devices. Guests also have access to a second-floor kitchen intentionally kept separate to mitigate a common shared-room disruption. Suites at Kinship Landing include King and Double Queen beds, stunning mountain and city views, in-room fireplaces, deep soaking tubs for relaxation, and overhead garage doors, turning the room into an indoor/outdoor viewing deck for Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains during Colorado Springs’ 300 annual days of sunshine.
