About the property

1927 Wash Park Bungalow

*We comply with all local laws, we have a short term rental license (2016-BFN-0008388) and we pay all local taxes*

Charlotte grew up in this home and now it's our pleasure to share it with you. It is two blocks from Washington Park, close to light rail, bike rental, grocery stores, restaurants, University of Denver, The Denver Tech Center and downtown. Pet and child friendly.

Charlotte moved into this house when she was 11 years old in 1927 (check out the photo in the dining room) with her parents and siblings. She lived here for 84 years and moved out just before she turned 96. Now her home is helping to pay for her assisted living costs. She would love to hear about your stay at her home, we have a notebook where you can leave her a message, she loves reading about your stay!

We know your pets (please discuss before booking with pets) and children will love the big backyard and walks in the beautiful park. The area is safe and the neighbors are friendly!

The house is equipped with everything you need to cook fabulous meals, has cable and HBO, high-speed wi-fi and is beautiful and comfortable. There are a couple twin size air mattress for extra guests.

We've stocked the house with guidebooks so you can easily find a good trail to bike, run or snowshoe.

You have access to the entire house, front and backyards.

There is a coded deadbold on the front door for late arrivals. Each family gets their own custom code for security. We're happy to help with things like grocery shopping etc with advance arrangements but we don't want to bother you if solitude is what you're after. We'll let you take the lead.

The Washington Park neighborhood centers around one of Denver's finest parks, known as wash park for short. The park covers 165 acres and features one of the most popular running trails in Denver. Two scenic lakes and the city's largest flower garden add to wash park's bucolic charm.

Wash Park neighborhood is a very safe and lovely area for a stroll, the people are friendly and there are many shop and restaurants within walking distance.

The house is about a mile from the light rail station. It's one block to the bus which will take you right to the bike rental kiosk and light rail. Denver has a wonderful bike rental program and bike paths that make cycling an ideal way to get around the city.

We've supplied maps and transit information for you.

Charlotte lived in this house from age 11 to age 97, the house is much as it was when she moved in. The floors are original to the house and creak, The kitchen has the original cabinets and countertops except for the cabinets and drainboard that were added in the 50's. The basement is very much as it was the day they moved in except for modern washer and dryer instead of the vintage one with a wringer that came with the house. If you're looking for modernity you may want to skip this home. While we've added many modern comforts like A/C and a television and high-speed internet, we've left much of the house untouched. We like it that way and we hope you do too.

Great home away from home!

We had SUCH a great experience at Charlottes house. It was above and beyond with all the amenities we could need and great safe location. Gretchen was very responsive and willing to help as well. We would definitely rent again.

Great stay near Washington Park

  • 5 of 5

Well, our family ski trip didn't work out as planned based on this year's snow levels, but our stay in Charlotte's house was exactly as we had hoped. The house was perfect for my family of four (2 daughter's aged 13 and 16) and the location couldn't be better for those wanting to get out and explore. I grew up in a house similar to Charlotte's house so I loved providing my girls with a bit of a history lesson each morning somewhere in the house. Great location, quaint house, excellent location, and just a fun experience.

This was the best stay for several reasons-the location, the history of the home, the way its been maintained, etc. But my favorite thing was the glorious beds. Like the Heavenly Bed at the Westin! Gretchen was super helpful & such a great hostess, and Charlotte's home is so full of light & love. Would book again on a heartbeat.

About Gretchen (and Charlotte)

I'm Gretchen, Charlotte's granddaughter and I'm helping her list and manage her home. Charlotte moved to an assisted living facility after living in her home for 84 years. In renting her home we hope we've found a way that her home can financially support her assisted living costs. She misses her home very much but the wonderful notes left by guests make it easier.

Gretchen (and Charlotte) purchased this house in 1927

What makes this house unique

Four generations of our family have lived in this home. There are a lifetime of precious memories here for our family and we hope that it's a special place for you as well.
