Promontory Point Open Space-Three Blocks and World’s Away from Holden House

You too could be here…

Holden House has many special places to relax – the wide Victorian verandahs with porch swings and white rocking chairs, the secret back garden with fountains, gazebo and a small pond, the beautiful appointed living room and parlor with wing back chairs and family antiques. But in addition to our great in-house amenities, we’re just steps from a special very little known neighborhood open space named Promontory Point Open Space. (Above right – Innkeeper Welling Clark welcomes you to our close-by natural park)

If you’re wanting a little walk just to stretch your legs after a day of driving or before enjoying your scrumptious breakfast, we have an idea for you! Promontory Point Open Space is only several blocks from the inn and offers fabulous views from atop the hill. This park in a natural setting with picnic tables, benches to sit a spell and a paved loop trail is the perfect place to spend some private time together and go off the beaten path. Only used by us locals, a short jaunt up the street from Holden House, Promontory Point Open Space offers wildflowers and native grasses and occasional wildlife spotting of deer, racoons, squirrels and many bird species.

And our nearby neighbors include the four-legged kind when you “hoof-it” just a brief walk up 11th Street from the inn, you’ll meet our friendly neighborhood horses, ready for a pat on the nose and eagerly looking for a carrot or apple to curb an equine appetite.
