"The Romance of the Past with the Comforts of Today." Imagine two storybook Victorian homes and a carriage house filled with antiques and family heirlooms. In 1902, Mrs. Isabel Holden, the widow of former rancher and prosperous businessman Daniel M. Holden, built this Colonial Revival Victorian and carriage house. The former Miss. Isabel Hayden came to Colorado from Iowa in 1864, where she met and married Daniel Holden. The Holdens had six children and although Daniel Holden died in 1896 of cholera, Isabel was 85 years old at her death in 1931. The Holdens owned considerable mining interests in the Colorado towns of Aspen, Cripple Creek, Silverton, Goldfield, and Independence, for which the five guest suites are named. The memories of Isabel and her family live on today at Holden House. Centrally located in a residential area near Old Colorado City, the Inn is convenient to all of the Pikes Peak area.

Immaculate and individually appointed guest suites boast private baths, feather pillows, antiques, air conditioning (in summer), queen beds, refrigerators, telephones/modems, CD players/clock radios, hairdryers, and modern amenities such as TV/DVD player, wireless Internet and a business center. The Inn also features romance with "tubs of two", mountain views, fireplaces, and more! The Carriage House is available as a weekly vacation rental in the off-season. Two friendly resident Inn cats will greet you.

If you're seeking rest and solitude, the Independence suite in the adjacent Victorian house is for you! The secret garden with a gazebo and fountains is a quiet place to retreat in the summer.

Awake to the aroma of homemade muffins hot from the oven, freshly ground coffee or specialty teas, fresh fruit, juice and a variety of delectable entrees such as Sallie's famous Southwestern Eggs Fiesta, German Puff Pancakes, or Ruffled Crepes Isabel. While enjoying a full gourmet breakfast, experience traditional hospitality and good conversation. Breakfast is served at your choice of 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. in the elegant formal dining room. Arrangements can be made for an early riser's breakfast should the need arise. Breakfast en suite is available for an additional charge. Daily maid service, private-label amenities, complimentary coffee and tea, freshly baked cookies, and turn-down service are just a few of Holden House's special touches. You won't want to miss the afternoon wine social offered each day.

The main house boasts an inviting living room with authentic Van Briggle tile fireplace and wing-back chairs, a front parlor with a TV, and a veranda offering comfortable wicker furniture, porch swings, and mountain views. In the carriage house, you will find two lovely sitting rooms, a charming bay window seat displaying a collection of stained glass where "Harvey," the six-foot white rabbit, sits obtrusively, and a cozy front porch.

From the majestic snow-capped Pikes Peak to the towering red rocks at Garden of the Gods, the region has something for everyone.

Take the cog railway to the top of 14,110-foot Pikes Peak, tour the US Air Force Academy, hike in Garden of the Gods or Cheyenne Cañon, shop in restored Old Colorado City or quaint Manitou Springs, experience White Water rafting near Royal Gorge, or gamble in historic Cripple Creek.
