 GHOST WALK SPECIAL PACKAGE – Thanks to popular demand, this package is offered again for October of 2005. Besides the exciting, lantern-lit, candlelight, Ghostwalks, which take place during two weekend evenings in October, a hike to the "Doc Holiday Memorial" (within walking distance from our B&B) in the daytime is always fun! Enjoy a Ghostly Weekend at the Lavender and Thyme Bed & Breakfast. This package makes for a booo-tiful weekend by combining a ghostly tour through Glenwood Springs' famous Pioneer Cemetery, where Doc Holliday's grave is featured, with the possibility of "sleeping" with the spirits of history. Included are tickets for the Historic Society's "Ghost Walk" and two nights spooky accommodations at The Lavender and Thyme Bed & Breakfast, where, as one of the "early Halloween treats", you might be served by the ghost of "Doc" or Lotty Palmer.

Dates: Ghostwalks are only offered on two weekends in October:
October 14, 15, 16, 2005
October 21, 22, 23, 2005
There are four (4) walks per evening:
7:00, 7:45, 8:30 and 9:15 PM

Cost: $ 250.00 per room (includes two nights’ accommodation and two Ghost walk tickets); reservation, including the time of your Ghost walk, prior to October 1, 2005, is appreciated. For additional Inspected and Approved Inn Specials throughout the state, go to:
