In 1896, a wealthy jeweler commissioned a lavish, Victorian brownstone to be built on Denver’s Capitol Hill. It was one of the area’s finest homes, with Tiffany windows, ornate crown molding, and stylish woodwork throughout. In later years, the building was divided into apartments and then transformed into a luxury hotel. More than a century later, The Holiday Chalet still contains many of the original design elements.
Today, the building houses a bed and breakfast with four room types. Each room is outfitted with antiques, period furniture, and a fountain spouting Earl Grey tea. Some even have private kitchens. While the rooms retain much of their original Victorian décor, they’ve been updated with flat-screen TVs and WiFi.
The course itself carries on that fun vibe, too. Winding through city streets and local parks, the 5K route is dotted with hydration stations that dole out hot chocolate. Holiday music, a giant Santa inflatable, and snow blowers help to set
