Holden House 1902
Bed & Breakfast Inn

Colorado Springs, Colorado


Imagine a two storybook Victorian homes and an original carriage house filled with antiques and family heirlooms. In 1902, Mrs. Isabel Holden, the widow of former rancher and prosperous Colorado Springs businessman Daniel M. Holden, built this Colonial Revival Victorian and carriage house. The Holdens owned considerable mining interests in the Colorado towns of Aspen, Cripple Creek, Goldfield, Silverton and Independence for which the five guest suites are named. The memories of Isabel and her family live on today in Holden House. 

Centrally located in a residential area near Old Colorado City, the inn is convenient to all of the Pikes Peak area.


Each of our deluxe guest suites feature a sitting area, private bath, in-room gas fireplace (winter), central air conditioning (summer), oversized bubble bath "tub for two", color/cable TV with DVD player, telephone/modem and high-speed wireless internet, cd player/radio, hair dryer, iron/ironing board, private label amenities and your own refrigerator.

Aspen Suite - The open beamed turret with hand painted sky mural, see through fireplace, private sitting area, mountain view and oversized "tub for two" make this suite a honeymooner's dream. Snuggle up in the comfortable reading nook with a good book, indulge in the garden "tub for two" (bubbles included!), and awake in your queen four-poster brass bed. The bath also includes a separate marble shower. Decorated in ivy wallpaper with accents of blue and rose, this suite gives the feeling of sleeping in a garden. Ask about our 2 night "breakfast in bed" Romance Package. Romance Package (2 night minimum) additional $15.00 charge plus room rate.

Cripple Creek Suite - Our newest suite (formerly the Leadville and Cripple Creek rooms) is a lovely two room suite reminiscent of elegance and romance. From the old fashioned white iron queen bed to the marble topped Victorian dresser, the mountain view to the mahogany fireplace, the private sitting area to the Roman marble "tub for two", the private bath with fluted porcelain pedastal sink to the separate marble shower, this suite offers the best of everything. Decorated in hues of deep blue and soft white with floral touches, this room offers a touch of Springtime in the Rockies. Ask about our 2 day "breakfast in bed" Romance Package. Romance Package (2 night minimum) additional $15.00 charge plus room rate.

Also available are the Goldfield and Silverton suites in the Carriage House and the Independence Suite in the adjacent Rose Victorian including the luxury suite selected as one of Country Inns - Waverly Room of the Year!
