Here at Holden House, you will find three side-by-side Victorian homes, situated in a tree-lined residential area just one mile west of downtown Colorado Springs, one mile east of historic Old Colorado City and four miles from quaint Manitou Springs. Within our adjacent complex of three Victorian painted lady homes, we feature the turreted Main House, the Rose Victorian and the Carriage House, each with two separate and well-appointed suites. While the world of travel has changed with an increasing number of alternative overnight accommodations, you can be assured that Holden House is dedicated to maintaining the overall quality, hospitality and cleanliness in our traditional boutique-style inn, combined with a delicious gourmet breakfast served each morning.
Breakfast Included! Each morning, our guests are treated to a complimentary full breakfast that's included in your room rate and served in the main house dining room. An optional breakfast served ensuite is also available for an additional fee. In addition, we will prepare an individual evening snack tray and glass of wine or beverage that you can take to your suite or enjoy in one of our many common areas, indoor or out.
