After a long day of exploring the many hidden treasures of the Pikes Peak Region, there is nothing better than a quiet, comfy bed in which to retire. For those looking for something a bit more intimate than the standard chain hotel, Colorado Springs has no shortage of privately owned Bed and Breakfasts that offer a personal touch to some local rest and relaxation.

Holden House

1102 W. Pikes Peak Avenue
Colorado Springs CO 80904

Originally built in 1902, current owners Sallie and Welling Clark purchased the Holden House in 1986 and completely restored the property, which is centrally located near Old Colorado City. With five antique-filled suites named after mining towns the original owners had financial interest in, the Holden House is perfect for a romantic getaway. Each features an over sized “Tubs-for-Two” and an option for a gourmet breakfast en suite. The Holden House has received many accolades and awards, including “Top Fifty Inns in America” by Inn Times, “Bed and Breakfast Inn of the Year” by Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado, and as a “best of the Best” by Fodor’s Travel Guides.
