Balloons ascend on colorful Colorado with Holden House bed and breakfast accommodations nearby

Labor Day weekend brings fun and hot air to the Pikes Peak Region when balloons ascend at Memorial Park for the Colorado Balloon Classic August 31-September 3, just a few miles east of Holden House. The setting is gorgeous, with majestic views of Pikes Peak in the background and Prospect Lake, where pilots hope to fly over the water, touch down and provide a beautiful reflection on calm water. And, weather permitting, the balloon glow is a sight when balloons gather to light up the night.  Holden House is the perfect location for so many fun and exciting activities in the Pikes Peak Region. If quiet and relaxation is more your style, we’ll provide the recommendations (and the porch swing and rocking chairs on the wide verandas) for a hand-holding walk through the woods, best places to kiss, or take a picnic lunch by a quiet stream, waterfall or the perfect perch with sweeping views. Whatever your needs, we’re here to help. Call us at 888.565-3980 to book your room or make a reservation online 24 hours per day at
