EASTHOLME IN THE ROCKIES BED AND BREAKFAST FORMERLY KNOWN AS “EASTHOLME HOTEL”, MARKS 125TH ANNIVERSARY
Cascade, Colorado, – The Eastholme in the Rockies Bed and Breakfast located at 4445 Hagerman Avenue, in Cascade, Colorado is celebrating its 125th Anniversary.
Originally built as the Eastholme Hotel in 1885 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998 and designated a UTE Pass landmark by the 1976 Bicentennial Committee. Eastholme is the oldest of a group of resort hotels that once flourished between scenic Manitou Springs and Cripple Creek. Authentically restored and furnished with period antiques, Eastholme was the sole recipient of the Colorado’s Historical Preservation Award for 1989.
Eastholme was built by Eliza Marriott Hewlett, a wealthy widow who migrated west from Schenectedy, New York with her two sisters, Ellen and Caroline Marriott in the early 1880’s. Hewlett astutely realizing the tourist potential of the scenic Ute Pass region, constructed the building as a resort hotel in 1885. Using craftsmen from the Pikes Peak region, they built the eight gabled hotel to reflect East Coast architecture and crowned their achievement as Eastholme Hotel. Known then as Hurricane Canyon and later renamed by Eliza as Cascade Canyon. Today we know it as Cascade, Colorado.
Today, Eastholme in the Rockies Bed and Breakfast is an elegant spacious six room Victorian bed and breakfast including two cabin rentals. Offering guests all the luxury and elegance of days past. A three course gourmet breakfast is served daily in the original dining room. Private gourmet dinners are offered for guests looking for a unique and romantic dining experience. Eastholme’s beautifully landscaped grounds are an excellent choice for a small intimate mountain weddings and receptions.
Eastholme’s gracious Victorian atmosphere and spectacular setting offer guests a Rocky Mountain experience they will long remember and want to return to often.
