Pansy's Parlor



Pansy’s Parlor Bed & Breakfast is located in Golden, Colorado’s beautiful 12th Street Historic District. Our 1879 Victorian, named for Pansy Hook, the last of five generations of a prominent pioneer family to live here, is Golden’s only B&B listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We offer gracious accommodations and delicious food, at reasonable rates.

One block from the main street, guests can walk to restaurants, shops, museums, theatre, Colorado School of Mines, The American Mountaineering Center, scenic Clear Creek, Coors Brewery and all the other downtown sites.

Four theme bedrooms, (two Victorian lady’s, Buffalo Bill’s, Schoolmarm’s), have distinctive period furnishings, for guests’ enjoyment, such as queen-size, antique brass beds, oak dressers and armoires, desks and comfortable seating.

All rooms have free WIFI, televisions and air-conditioning.

Unfortunately, we do not allow pets, no matter how well behaved.

Pansy’s Parlor has been featured several times on the Golden Historic Homes Tour.

Buffalo Bill was a friend of the original owners and sat in the parlor while visiting.

James Gow, Golden’s Armory Building’s architect, grew up here, and built the parlor’s unique fireplace from rocks and gems, studied by early C.S.M mining students.

Be our guests, and experience a glimpse of Golden’s glorious past!


A business traveler, looking for a comfortable bed and quiet work-space,
Couples searching for a romantic get-away,
Busy tourists seeking a convenient sight-seeing base,
or a work-weary person needing to relax and re-charge


A fine old antique
With charm that’s unique
And food that’s sublime
As you step back in time
