Our first visit (Posted December 29, 2021)
"This place is a romantic get away. From the first moment we stepped into the house till the time we left we felt very welcomed and dotted on. After you settle in you come down to a wonderful assortment of snacks and 2 glasses of wine. we talked a bit with the owner and learned some history. The room was amazing. We did not stay in my first choice room because it was taken but our second choice room was still amazing. They take such care in what they do to make you feel so welcomed. Cookies in the room with wine glasses. You get a choice of times for your breakfast 8am or 9am. we are early risers so we chose 8am. at 7am we went down and got some coffee to take back to our room. Breakfast was so delicious and so beautifully laid out. I can not say enough about this place. we will definitely be back. and I have told friends and family that it is a must visit if looking for a night or two away."
There's no doubt that the last several years having been challenging for everyone, both from a personal and business perspective. We want to especially thank you! for continuing to make Holden House a success, despite the difficulties presented in travel decisions. Thanks to you, In late 2020 and throughout 2021, we saw an increase in our return guests. The best comments we received from those of you who stayed with us, was that you knew what to expect in the care that we have always taken to ensure clean accommodations. And, our new to Holden House guests, have mentioned that our housekeeping awards, standards and up-to-date health related transparency on our website, made their decision easier when deciding where to stay in the Pikes Peak area.
We used a bit of down time to paint all three Victorian buildings with a fresh coat of exterior colors. While weather was a challenge in early spring, we also managed to replace our walkways and sidewalks in front of the Rose Victorian. As anyone knows if you own a house, a homeowner's job is never done and sometimes the behind the scenes repairs are the most important. And, while it seemed like only yesterday to us when we installed our main house furnace and AC, a new HVAC system needed replacement in the main house as guest comfort is one of our top priorities.
Improvements include new sidewalks in front of the Rose Victorian to welcome guests
