A GIFT CERTIFICATE (Gift Certificates can be emailed)

 '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, step inn-side for history, holiday scents and sounds.  
The wreaths, garlands, lights and nutcrackers were all in place, ready to welcome guests to the decorated Victorian space. 
The gourmet breakfast was presented in style, and a friendly innkeeper to serve with a smile. 
With fireplaces, bubble bath tubs for two, soft robes, private baths and TV's, the Holden House guest suites were sure to please. 
We're pleased to welcome all, so hurry now and make that call.
We'll work to make your holiday bright, so happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!
We look forward to seeing you at Holden House soon. May the season bring you a holiday filled with health and happiness.  We hope you'll stay with us soon to share our love of Christmastime and our enthusiasm for decking our halls with garlands, wreaths, velvet bows, shiney ornaments, six Christmas trees, dozens of unique nutcrackers and thousands of lights. Share this special time with our B&B family and enjoy all the beauty of the season with us!
It's not too late to enjoy our holiday decorations, on display until January 1st.
