Innsitting in Colorado

Tour of the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine

It's great to know that you can still be breathing even if you are 1,000 feet underground!
The tour of the Mollie Kathleen gold mine in Cripple Creek was certainly interesting. The life of a miner back in the early 1900's was extremely challenging for sometimes very little reward. You can always appreciate your job once you discover what is required for others. This was our last big off day trip before heading back to Atlanta. I will be home for a week and then I am flying out to Seattle Washington for an assignment with

Fires in Colorado

Currently, Cripple Creek is a safe haven away from the wildfires. We all share in the fear and frustration as our friends and families suffer through this very difficult time. We are keeping you close in our thoughts and prayers.

Forever Young

The Hoods are having a good time here in Cripple Creek Colorado working until July 31, 2012. We would love to see all our friends both old and new and take care of you during your stay here at the beautiful Carr Manor. The town really has taken on a different look and feel since we were here in February. The Gold Bar Room Theater menu is filled with it's Summer Season line up. Durell and I enjoyed our first show Saturday night and celebrated with Rod Stewart and Shania Twain country vs rock.

Innkeeping Assignment

We just finished our assignment with Carr Manor in Cripple Creek Colorado. The beautiful Manor was hopping with lots of activity. Since it was Ice Festival week and Valentines we enjoyed caring for a full house of guests. Carr Manor extends an extra nice welcome on Valentines day by providing fresh flowers in each guestroom along with a tempting box of handmade local chocolates. We even had the priviledge of hosting a wedding in the stately Grand Ballroom. The wedding guest enjoyed their catered buffet dinner from the Midland Depot which featured Chicken Marsala, Vegetarian Lasagna (my favorite) and their hearty Meaty Lasagna along with all the fixings.
