Return to Eastholme In The Rockies Bed and Breakfast


On Sunday July 1st, 2012 Waldo Canyon Incident Fire Command allowed the residents of Ute Pass (towns of Cascade, Chipta Park, and Green Mountain Falls) to return home for the first time since being evacuated 8 days ago. As we drove up Topeka Ave what a wonderful sight to see Eastholme sitting there proudly as she has for 127 years! We were accompanied by our very good friends Roxanne and Conrad who so graciously provided us a home away from home for over a week. The grand lady came through wonderfully and will be greeting guests again in a few short days.


Shortly after arriving home we bee-lined down to the Cascade Volunteer Fire Department station to share our thanks for making this incredible home coming possible! What stories they all had to share AND how fortunate all the residents of the area are of their efforts to protect Cascade. What a coordinated effort the entire firefighting effort has been, and continues to be, and by so many folks from different areas and agencies. We are currently under a pre-evac condition as the fire reaches 50% containment such if fire and weather conditions shift we need to remain ready to leave. Please check out the CVFD Facebook page.

With our return we will now start working through our reservations backlog. We will be issuing guest refunds and reschedules over the next couple days. Thank you all for your continued support, understanding, and patience during this time.

Waldo Canyon Fire, Cascade, and Eastholme Bed and Breakfast

As many of you have heard or seen in the news the west is already experiencing a tough summer for wildland fires. Colorado has had it's share but is pulling through. This past Saturday June 23rd a wildland fire started just a short distance from Eastholme Bed and Breakfast here in Cascade. Within hours a mandatory evacuation was ordered for the immediate area and is still in effect as of Tuesday morning June 26th. Everyone is safe and sound, including Chance the big cat, and we are staying with our good friends. Thank you!

We would like to thank all those that have sent emails or contacted us directly regarding our status. We have been making contact with all those that have upcoming reservations that might be impacted by our temporary closure. Refunds for missed reservations will be issued once we return to the property and can process them. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

An incredible thank you to all those involved with fighting this fire including our own Cascade Fire Department of which Ken was a member for many years. Hats off and thank you to all! As can be seen on the incident maps the efforts by federal, state, and local agencies and departments have notched out a pocket around Cascade. A work of art in it's own right.
