Inn Description:

Historic Carr Manor offers first class luxury in Cripple Creek, CO. As you walk through the original school doors, framed by sculptures of playful children, your luxury vacation experience unfolds in the grand hallway, where you are greeted by the warm smiles of innkeepers Gary and Wini Ledford and their staff. Carr Manor, is delightfully appointed as a boutique hotel and operated in the home style of a bed & breakfast. Walk through halls steeped in history, relax in the comfort of a king or queen bed surrounded by the warmth of 1890Õs gold rush memorabilia. Sip coffee or tea and munch on homemade cookies in the great room. The Ledford’s have completely renovated and redecorated the existing rooms and have constructed three additional executive suites, a grand ball room and conference center. Each of the 14 uniquely decorated rooms and suites, all with private baths, have theme names and historic reflections of times gone past. Innkeeper Wini Ledford, has ties to the 1890Õs 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. 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. Other graduates, mentors and distinguished pioneers are featured on the walls of the Manor’s Gallery. Join us as the dream continues to unfold. Where you can enjoy the craftsmanship and romance of days gone by and “Where the Past Is Still Alive.”
