An annual classic tradition: "Holden House Month of Christmas"
'Twas the month of Christmas and throughout the inn, the kitties were stirring hoping guests would soon check in. 
The afternoon wine social was presented with care, in hopes that guests would soon be there.
The beep of computers whirring on high, the guests were excited about free WiFi.
With rooms named for historic Colorado towns, let us welcome you with wonderful holiday scents and sounds.  
The wreaths, garlands, lights and nutcrackers were all in place, ready to welcome guests to our decorated Victorian space. 
The gourmet breakfast was set on a plate, and it was our hope that the guests would not be late. 
With fireplaces, bubble bath tubs for two, soft robes, private baths and TV's, the Holden House guest suites were sure to please.
