Cripple Creek’s Carr Manor, is delightfully appointed as a Boutique Hotel and operated in the home style of a bed & breakfast. This destination resort offers first-class accommodations in the heart of Cripple Creek
attractions – a respite at the center of fun and adventure that awaits you in The World’s Greatest Gold Camp.
What a rare experience to walk the halls where famous students, teachers and locals lived and started their careers - such notables as former Colorado Gov. Ralph Carr, Lowell Thomas and Jack Dempsey. Carr became Colorado governor in the 1940s and was noted as Person of the Century by the Denver Post for his humanitarian efforts to protect American of Japanese descent during World War II. Other graduates, mentors and distinguished pioneers are featured on the walls of the Manor's Gallery.
Innkeeper Wini Ledford, has other ties to the 1890’s gold rush history. Her great grandfather, Winfield Scott Boynton, was sheriff of El Paso County (before Teller County was formed) between 1894 to 1897 when Labor Wars pitted miners against mine owners. He and his brother Frank, his wife Katherine and their families were doctor, builders and merchants in Cripple Creek from around 1890 to 1915.
The Ledford family purchased the property and is now in the painstaking process of renovation and restoration. The couple has completely renovated
and redocorated the existing 14 rooms and has constructed two additional govener suites, a Grand Ball Room and conference center. Each of the uniquely decorated rooms and suites have theme names and historic reflections of times gone past.
The warm charm of the Victorian era manifests itself in the turn of the 19th Century buildings of Cripple Creek. A few truly remarkable buildings were constructed and are available to the general public to view, but the Carr is
one of the rare places open to actually spend a night or a few nights and enjoy the craftsmanship and romance of days gone by.
