This is a cozy small studio perfect for no more than 2 people looking for a private getaway near downtown Denver. The bed is a new custom bedding topped futon (double size) which closes for daytime. The loft has a twin size mattress. You will have a washer/dryer, microwave, gas stove with oven, Air Conditioner, high speed Internet and cable TV. The backyard is enclosed for privacy and has a patio, firepit, and grill plus a pretty water feature. Pets are possible - the floors are tiled and the backyard is enclosed. More intimate than a hotel room - you decide whether to eat in or check out our great restaurants, relax at a neighborhood bar or distillery (we have several in our area) or sit on the back patio. Drive or take the lightrail to downtown Denver/Convention Center/Pepsi Center/Mile High Stadium in about 5 mins. or walk to view art galleries 2 blocks east of your 'home'.

I have lived in this area of Denver for over 20 years. We live a few blocks away and manage our rental properties ourselves for the past 8 years. I love to collect art and enjoy designing spaces for people to live in. My daytime job is owner of a tree service. As a Denver native, I ski, snowboard, bike around town, people watch on 16th street mall (will share favorite restaurants!), antique shop and love living in Denver.
Location has always been a factor - we are right next to downtown Denver so are central to all of the metro area. This house is really ideal for a getaway or short stay near the 'action' in Denver or anywhere - skiing and /or hiking are less than 1 hr. away and the bike trails are right here. It is nice to have your own space at the end of the day, eat when and what you want and even do the laundry (if you so choose!). We see it as sort of a bed-and-breakfast without the breakfast sort of place. We live nearby so we will host you here in Denver to the best of our ability. So when you are tired from skiing, hiking, climbing, viewing art, visiting museums, shopping, eating out, seeing broadway shows, cheering for our sports teams, biking, seeing friends and family you could come to Lipan St., and rest your weary bones. Then get up and do it all again the next day.
Why would you choose us rather than a downtown hotel? Privacy, set your own schedule, enjoy a pleasant backyard in a quiet neighborhood, eat and drink exactly what you want when you want it, meet some locals - that's us - who can give you the lowdown on the area. It's different - not just another hotel room (tho' we have some very very nice ones here in Denver!). Did I mention the hammock in the backyard? The park is 3 blocks away, the Buckhorn Exchange(oldest restaurant in Co. #1 liquor license) is 3 blocks west, probably The Japanese farnhouse-style restaurant in the US is a 5 min. walk north. We are located 6 blocks south of Auraria campus - if you are visiting a student there. And the I25 exit for 8th Ave. is about 1/2 mi. from our house.
We are 2 blocks from the Santa Fe Arts district with more than 2 dozen galleries to visit. We are also 5 mins. from downtown Denver and LODO - you can drive or take the lightrail - 2 blocks away. Pepsi Center, Sports Authority Stadium, Convention Center, Denver Art Museum, 16th St. Mall, Denver Performing Arts Center and more are quickly and easily within reach.
