Holden House was established in 1986

When asked what has allowed the Clarks to continue in the B&B innkeeping business, Sallie Clark says, “We’ve learned to adapt to the changing needs of the tourism and bed and breakfast industry while balancing our personal lives by employing a competent and dedicated innkeeping staff. The love of our community and sharing the Pikes Peak region with guests instills in us a continued appreciation for Colorado Springs”.
