Denver, United States A popular poet once said that it takes a heap of living to make a house a home. And that is true about our Holiday Chalet which has been my family home for three generations. If ever there were a mansion destined to become a welcome home to travelers over many generations, it is our grand and gracious Holiday Chalet. Our elegant three-story brownstone was built in 1896 for Henry Bohm-a prominent Denver jeweler. My grandfather Noah Hayden Griffith purchased this lovely home in 1912. Following my Grandfather's death in the flu epidemic of 1918, my grandmother, Ida Lindsey Griffith, converted this 12 room, 2 bath home into 12 efficiency apartments complete with private bathrooms and full kitchens. That's one of the things that makes us so unique and comfortable as a bed and breakfast. An added bonus is grandmother's beautiful hand painted china and oil paintings which you will see when you enter our light and airy Victorian breakfast room. Our breakfast menue includes Starbuck's coffee, assorted teas, juice, homemade bread and muffins, hot and cold cereals.
