About Dara

We are architects who fell in love with this valley many years ago. Glenwood Springs is a wonderful place to visit. Living here for more than 15 years gives us knowledge about many things local such as great restaurants, great trails, the best places to go horse back riding. If you have a question about anything, we are happy to share what we know with you! We hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Glenwood Springs!

Dara purchased this house in 2001

Why Dara chose Northwest Colorado

This adorable little house is located in a quiet neighborhood 2 blocks east of Grand Avenue. It has been remodeled by Bruce with touches of old barn wood and rusted steel on the exterior and a warm, contemporary touch on the interior.

What makes this house unique

Quiet neighborhood, located in the heart of downtown Glenwood Springs, enjoy walks to shops and restaurants and along bike paths by the rivers! The Hot Springs Pool is right across the walking bridge! There is an off street parking spot and exterior, lockable hanging for bikes and kayaks. We will have a fresh bouquet of flowers waiting for you.

Quaint and Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This little house it so cute, is in a nice neighborhood and is just three blocks away from the heart of downtown. We stayed there two nights in August and it was nice to have the air conditioning. The art everywhere is a real plus. The kitchen is very unique but you have everything you need. I do recommend this place. My only comment is bed in the front bedroom is not a queen but rather a double. But everything else is as advertised and the location makes the property a real gem.

Dara's Artist Hideaway, Glenwood Springs

  • 4 of 5

Great things.....

**Awesome location, couldn't be beat, we walked everywhere!! Only got the car outta the driveway once in 4 days to get provisions.

**Nice spacious open living/kitchen, great for the 3 of us!

**Comfortable beds, nice & bright decor

**Nice renno'd bathroom, more counter space would have been nice w/ 3 ladies who use lotsa cosmetics, cremes & magic to stay looking younger- than-dirt. Maybe some shelving or storage under the sink would work????

**Nice assortment of kitchen implements to prepare food; we weren't missing anything we needed!

**Nice friendly owner :)

Things I'd change if this were my place: (isn't there always somethin?)

**Larger TV, they're not that expensive anymore, we wanted a girl's stay-in-movie night & had to move furniture to be able to see the screen

**Larger, quieter fridge--once you get that big ol' bottle a wine in there, no room for healthy food, take home leftovers or junk food, for that matter!! :( Also, the fridge is REALLY noisy at night, really makes sleeping without the door closed pretty much a "no-go" and with it closed the air doesn't circulate as well.

Overall, really really enjoyed ourselves, Thanks Dara!!

wonderful little retreat EXCELLENT location

  • 5 of 5

We visited Glenwood Springs with two things in mind. Skiing and utilizing the towns Hot Springs. Stumbling upon this charm of a home was a bonus. It was clean and organized. Decorated with the owner/artists creations. Though the house is on the "tiny" side (I believe around 900 sqf), they have made wise use of the space. The kitchen is very open with ample room to prepare a meal (we only prepare snacks). The refrigerator is a smaller apartment sized. However it worked perfectly for us as we only stored drinks and a few snacks. The freezer section was just large enough to store a large bag of ice. If we were to have stayed longer than 2 nights, we would need to bring a cooler to store frozen foods in.

The tv in the home is very small and does not have satellite or cable. No reception what so ever. Loads if VHS tapes were available as well as computer cords to stream shows from your laptop. We were not there to watch tv so this wasn't an issue to us. Internet worked great. There are two tables to dine on. Six chairs for the tables. We played board games both nights and the living room table was perfect for game playing. The bathroom was large (considering the smallness of the home) and had adequate towels for each of us. Warning...the bathroom door lock didn't catch when closed so the door was never locked. We implemented a "closed door means occupied" rule and had no issues. Perhaps the owners should hang an artsy sign on door that could be flipped to read occupied (when in use) . A previous renter had mentioned the front bedroom bed had a tendency to roll when occupant moved. Our son and daughter in law confirmed this issue. Seems the bed is on wheels and moves a bit with movement. Not a big deal and probably an easy fix.

The location was the best. A very short walk into town. Lots of options for dinning and shopping. There is great bookstore a stones throw from the house, the hot springs were "walkable" (a bit of a walk, but definitely one I'd take in warmer weather) but we drove as it was 40 degrees and the thought of walking back with wet hair was not appealing.

We had an extra friend join us for one night. She utilized the roll away bed.. It was a very nice bed. She said she slept well. We set it up in the living room and it fit nicely.

We turned the heat on once and it worked like a charm.. We would return to this home without hesitation. The owners were very helpful and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. It will surely be helpful to future guests! We will address the bathroom lock and the rolling bed. Thanks again, it is an excellent place to stay if you are planning on adventures and need a place to land, eat and relax between those adventures, small and simple in the middle of it all (downtown). Please visit again!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great little quirky house.

Only thing to criticize would be the tiny refrigerator. We brought pre-made food to heat, and there wasn't enough room in the refrigerator. Also, the bed in the guest room rolls every time you move and there weren't enough blankets, but overall, we had a great stay. It is perfect for 3 people. We walked to breakfast and it was a very easy, quick drive to Aspen.

We would definitely stay here again!

Cozy house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The roperty was cute and clean and just as described. Perfect for our family weekend get away!

Close walking distance to great restaurants and the Glenwood hot springs.

Viewing and reading about the art in the house was also very interesting.

Our teenage boys would have been happier with a little bigger TV with cable hookup, but they enjoyed some of the VHS tapes and DVDs and I have to admit that it was nice to disconnect from TV for a few days!

Dara was a wonderful host and we hope to visit again!!!
