I visited for the first time recently from the UK with my sister. I found the old museum really interesting, literally like we had gone back in time. We paid $5 to walk around on our own, and you could pay $7 for a guided tour. The ladies working there were very pleasant. The rooms were so elegant, a real slice of Wild West history and worth seeing!

Great info, a secret treasure, a hidden gem among the casinos. The madame had the largest funeral ever attended in Cripple Creek.

This was such an interesting tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and knew so much history about the house and town. This was a highlight of our trip. Definitely worth it!

Well, it's been said that the best time in any town can be had at the brothel. In Cripple Creek that was very much true in the 1890's. And Charlotte can tell you ALL the tales fit for publishing! She's an expert on the CC history and knows Homestead House totally! The furnishings are often original to the house and they are all from the right era. Much of the clothing was found in trunks in the basement and the stories are worthy of a whole Friday evening. This was a $9000/night establishment (when converted to today's money values), and so you can imagine the opulence. Go, find out how Pearl's Girls lived!

Good pair of tour guides, one heads up the historic preservation effort & shared challenges of fundraising & corporate battles. Tight quarters suitable for SMALL group.

Interesting tour from two well-informed ladies who were very helpful in pointing out additional area attractions. I was surprised that the building is essentially unchanged from when it was used as a bordello. Lots of original furnishing and even clothing that was found in trunks in the basement are on display
