Beautiful, private carriage house in back of 1893 historic home. Perfect for the business or solo traveler but can accommodate 2 with the trundle bed. Gardens, fire pit, gas grill, all available to guests. Conveniently located to downtown, Coors Field or the Mile High Stadium. Easy access to both I-25 and I-70. *** Construction is being done on the main house - expect noise and construction traffic during daytime working hours! ***
Beautiful 1893 Historic home on a double lot in the Highlands neighborhood. Close to restaurants, bars and everything in downtown Denver with easy access to both I-70 and I-25. Public transportation is half a block away or you can take a cab downtown for approximately $10 or Uber for $7.
The guest cottage out back is very private and cozy with a pottery barn daybed and a plush mattress. The kitchenette is equipped for basic cooking/coffee making but it is not a full-blown kitchen. There is a Keurig solo coffee maker for coffee lovers. There is no dishwasher or disposal so please be courteous of the sink drainage lines! Dump food scraps in the trash can or the composter. There is a microwave and a 2 burner plug in cooktop. The small refrigerator is ample for whatever groceries you may wish to stock up on and feel free to use whatever you find in there. There is a large gas grill just outside if you would like to grill out while you are here. The private bath is beautifully finished with carrara marble floors and shower walls. The Dutch Door is always a big hit with guests but expect a visit from the kitties if you leave it open! The unit has an air conditioning/heating unit. Please turn it off if you are leaving doors and windows open or while you are away. The remote control for the AC is attached to the fridge. There is a small bistro table in the cottage but most guests like to enjoy their time outside.
We invite our guests to make use of our beautiful backyard space. Just outside the guest house is a small brick patio with a table and chairs. You are welcome to utilize any of the outdoor spaces in the yard and we encourage you to do so! We have a beautiful deck with a gas fire pit and a soothing, burbling fountain nearby. There is a chaise lounge for relaxing and an outdoor dining area. The Dixie Chicks (our backyard chickens) are also a big hit with guests and we invite you to help yourself to their delicious fresh eggs! We also have a small garden with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, Swiss chard, jalapeños, bell peppers and more. Harvest whatever you like and enjoy! We have a very unique space that offers a country farm vibe with the convenience of city living. Have coffee, read a book or just be entertained by the backyard wildlife - our family of squirrels, 2 house kitties (Biscuit and Bella), our 2 Flemish Giant Bunnies (Hoss and Pfeffer) and our 6 beautiful hens! We look forward to sharing our home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Easy street parking out front with access through the side gate makes it easy to come and go at your leisure. *Note* We have 3 pot shops on the corner and parking has become crowded during business hours. They close at 7pm and the street completely clears out after that but, occasionally, you may have to park around the corner if arriving during their business hours. Just FYI.
Laundry room access is available should you need to wash clothes during your stay.
There is a bus stop right on the corner if you need public transport. The B-Cycle Bikes are nearby and Denver has a wonderful Car2go service if you are a member. Taxis, Lyft and Uber are easy options for transportation and generally $7-12 if you are heading downtown. If you have a rental car, there is easy street parking right out front of the house.
We have 6 chickens, 2 Flemish Giant Bunnies and 2 very social kitties! If you are allergic, please let me know and I will do my best to keep them away but they do roam the yard periodically during the daytime and will come say hello if given the opportunity! The chickens have fenced quarters at the back of the property. However, they are Bad Girls and occasionally jump the fence and wreak havoc on the gardens. If you see them somewhere they're not supposed to be, just open the fence gate and shoo them back into their space. A couple of them are friendly and will eat out of your hand and can be picked up. Feel free to interact with our critters as much or as little as you like!
A trundle bed is available for an extra person. Word of warning though - it will make for very close quarters as the cottage is already very small!
Toegang voor gasten
Guests may access all outdoor areas including seating areas, grill and fire pit. Access to laundry room, if needed. Unfortunately, due to abuse, the hot tub is no longer available to guests.
Interactie met gasten
We are a very social household and entertain frequently but we also travel often. There is a chance that you may have the place to yourself and never see us. If we are home when you arrive, we will introduce ourselves and give you the 2-cent tour. If we are gone or out of town when you arrive, you can just come in and make yourself at home! We are happy to socialize as much or as little as you like! If we are outside on the deck, feel free to join us! We enjoy meeting our guests and hearing your stories but are also respectful of your privacy and understand needing some quality "me time."
Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
There is wifi in the casita but no TV. This is intentional as the space has been designed for rest and relaxation. I mention it because a couple of guests have made comments about the absence of one. So be aware... NO TV.
