OUR SUITES ARE VERY "ACCOMMODATING"
Meet the Independence Suite in the Rose Victorian
While we know that Independence Day signifies the birth of America, here at Holden House, our Independence Suite is named for the historic mining town of Independence (near Aspen) in which the Holden's owned mining interests and its namesake mine in the historic gold mining district of Cripple Creek. In the spring of 1891, W. S. Stratton persuaded Leslie Popejoy to grubstake him in the Cripple Creek District in return for half the profits. Stratton staked two claims on the south slope of Battle Mountain on July 4, 1891. The two claims - the Independence and the Washington, were both named in honor of the holiday. Cripple Creek is an approximately 45 min. drive from Holden House, offering historic museums, a narrow gauge train, scenic drive options (especially beautiful in the summer and fall) and limited stakes gaming.
Our Independence Suite also signifies the independence of those who require special accommodations, including ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) access. We are one of only a few local B&Bs that provide disabled access for our guests with a ramp to the parking area and an ADA accessible bedroom and bath. We are honored to be able to accommodate the needs of our guests.
INN THE KITCHEN - While our bottomless cookie jar has taken a break, you'll find a personal cookie plate in your suite that will be gladly refilled upon request.
