EASTHOLME IN THE ROCKIES BED AND BREAKFAST - 2010 MARKS 125TH ANNIVERSARY

Cascade, Colorado, USA - The Eastholme in the Rockies Bed and Breakfast of Cascade, Colorado, USA, located at 4445 Hagerman Avenue, in Cascade, Colorado is celebrating its 125th Anniversary.

About the Eastholme in the Rockies: 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.
