The SpaceYou will have the entire property to relax and roam. There is plenty of off-street parking in a large driveway/parking area in front of the home. The house has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, a library/game room, living room, dining room and kitchen. In addition, there is a small utility room which is where the "modern conveniences" (microwave, coffeemaker, toaster) are located. The home was built in 1953, and was occupied by the original owners until recently. Because of this, almost all of the furnishings and décor is original and vintage, giving a relaxed, "staying-at-Grandma's" type of ambience.
The bathroom includes toilet, sink, and shower/bath with rails for those that might need assistance.
The bedroom has a double bed with a tempur-pedic mattress. Additional guests can use the queen-size sofa bed which is located in the living room and/or the couch in the game room.
Small but full kitchen which includes, dishes, glasses, pots, utensils.
You are welcome to use spices, vinegars, olive oil, flour, salt, pepper, coffee and tea that are part of the kitchen. Feel free to cook, barbecue---please make yourself at home! We will provide you with muffins, Danish or doughnuts daily.
Depending on your mood and the weather, you can dine in the kitchen (2 people), the dining room (up to 6), or outdoors on the patio (chairs for 4). There is a charcoal grill and tools available for your use.
The rear of the house opens up to a mini-park-like setting; lots of varieties of trees, flowers and bushes. Also, lots of bunnies, squirrels and different birds (blue jays, hawks, mourning doves) call the ranch home. The patio is the perfect place to have your morning coffee or evening cocktails!
As a guest you will have complete privacy, as we do not live on site. We are about five minutes away and of course can be reached by either phone or text. We love to interact with our guests and share tips on things to do and places to go, but certainly are mindful and respect those that enjoy their privacy. Guest AccessGuests have access to all rooms in the main house and grounds on the property. Although they are attached to the house via the breezeway, our office and garage is not accessible to the guests. Interaction with GuestsAs stated earlier, we look forward to helping you "find your way" or just hanging out---whatever works for you! The NeighborhoodThis quiet neighborhood is a mixture of old and new houses and residents. Our friends that owned the house would tell how Bowles was a dirt road and Grant Ranch was a ranch! That said, things sure have changed! Even though the closest neighbors aren't that close in proximity, they all are nice, friendly people.
Within about a five mile radius, there are brew pubs, wineries, shopping, restaurants, parks, golfing, lakes--- you name it!
In the home, you will find that we have compiled a book of our local favorite spots to include recommendations and menus for your review. Getting AroundFeel like venturing out a little further? The RTD bus stop is at the end of the driveway, and the light rail station is only two miles away. Either form of transportation will take you wherever you might like to go---downtown Denver, sports arenas, museums, restaurants and DIA. The foothills are minutes away and are the gateway to Red Rocks, Bandimere Speedway, gambling (Central City & Blackhawk), and all forms of mountain activities in the Rockies. Renting a car is simple, or we can hook you up with Uber. In addition, Doug is an Uber driver and he can take you wherever you would like to go. **Skiers, boarders--- ask us about special rates for transportation to and from the slopes for a day of skiing!** Other Things to NoteIn keeping with the 50's theme, please be advised that there is not a television in the home. We do however, have WiFi and will provide you with a password so that you can access your emails, etc.
Although we do have a modern-style refrigerator, stove and dishwasher in the kitchen, there is no garbage disposal. We will provide you with bags and a place to dispose of your food scraps.
We love this place and hope you will too. That said please respect the space and care for it as if it were your own. Please observe quiet time from 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM. We have a no smoking policy that includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes and cannabis, both in the house and on the grounds outside.
