Colorado Springs getaway

So we took a trip up to the Springs this weekend, our quarterly excursion to Fort Carson to exercise those retirement bennies. We overnighted on this trip, staying at Holden House 1902 Bed and Breakfast, which is our favorite Victorian B&B. This time we stayed in the Aspen Suite, in the main house, upstairs. The suite is long and narrow, but not overly so, with the bed right under the big turret visible in this shot:


Here are some interior shots:









As we noted from a previous visit, the service is excellent, provided by a very friendly and personable staff. From 5 PM - 7 PM there is a nice little cheese and veggie selection, along with a pair of very decent red and white wines.

For dinner, we enjoyed the mixed mezzi appetizer plate and the Lamb Giouvetsi at Jake and Telly's in Old Colorado City.

Breakfast was a very nice fruit cup, very good coffee, muffins, and a Crème Brûlée French Toast  with bacon dish.
