Colorado vacations are not just for families or couples. Sometimes, a group of girlfriends just need some time to unwind together. Golden, Colorado offers an excellent place to do so. Its mixture of quiet western hospitality combined with interesting and educational things to do makes it popular among friends looking for a place to get away.
While visiting Golden, consider taking the time to tour the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Here you can see the craft as it took shape throughout the Old West. Other museums include the Buffalo Bill Museum, the Golden Pioneer Museum, and the Colorado Railroad Museum, which is one of the most popular attractions in Golden. During your stay, plan to take a hike or have a picnic in Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
As you are looking for places to stay in Golden, Colorado, consider the Silk Pincushion. This bed and breakfast encompasses everything Victorian, which makes it a favorite among female travelers. It has three guestrooms decorated with antique furnishings and plenty of quilts and lace. The private bathrooms are stocked with toiletries, and you have access to complimentary bottled water and towels during your stay.
Throughout your stay, you will be served a full breakfast every day. Most days, freshly baked treats are available in the kitchen in the afternoon. The Silk Pincushion can accommodate dietary restrictions as well. The facility is equipped with high-speed Internet, so you can stay connected if you need to during your stay. If you are staying for an extended time, you can request daily room freshening.
To make your stay convenient, the owners will give you a keypad code to use as you come and go in the various guest areas of the house. This means you and your girlfriends can set your own schedule, independent of the schedule of the property’s owners.
The Silk Pincushion doubles as an Embroidery Design Studio. If you are lucky, you may be able to take a class on sewing or embroidery during your stay. Check the class schedule before you book your trip to see if any are available during your planned getaway.
