Foodies love small biz – Holden House says eating local provides unique culinary choices

Local restaurants offer personal touches in Colorado SpringsFoodies show love to small biz – Holden House innkeepers steer guests to local and close-by eateries. 

Traveling can be both fun and challenging, but out of the way small-business restaurants, shops and sites can help to make your vacation, business trip or getaway that much more relaxing. For guests staying at Holden House 1902 Bed & Breakfast Inn located in Colorado Springs, foodies will love the recommendations provided by innkeepers Welling and Sallie Clark and their knowledgeable assistant innkeepers during a stay.

“It’s important that as a small business, we support other small businesses and point our guests to the unique local restaurants in our area”, says owner-innkeeper Welling Clark. “While there may be a level of knowing what to expect at a chain restaurant, our focus is to assist guests by enjoying a culinary experience with a local perspective.”

Holden House is centrally located on a quiet tree-lined residential street on the historic Westside of Colorado Springs. It’s also close to designated historic districts in Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs and downtown Colorado Springs.  Upon check-in, guests are personally provided a tour of the inn’s amenities which includes an introduction to a basket of local restaurant menus.  Innkeepers are happy to make reservations for guests and will gladly call ahead to assure a great dining spot.
