The SpaceNote: If you are booking on AirBnB for the first time, we welcome you! However, we do live on the property, so we are cautious about who we allow to stay. Please include a short bio in your profile along with at least three verifications. We are not trying to be nosy, but it makes us feel more comfortable!
We live at the base of the Rockies, conveniently located 15 minutes from Red Rocks, a little more than an hour from ski resorts, and 20 minutes from downtown. Our home features a secluded guest area in our bright and airy basement (seriously, look at the photos). The private basement has 2 tastefully decorated bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate 4 people. Our space includes two bedrooms. All beds include down comforters. Both bedrooms have full access to a private full bathroom.
Two single beds
Please note that the recreation room is not as private since the home owners will need to access the space once or twice the day to do laundry/feed pets/etc. We do allow pets at this time, but they cannot be left at the house unattended. Please no aggressive dogs and no pets on furniture. Guest AccessThe home is a ranch style house, and the guests will have access to the entire finished basement (about 700 square feet). There is no private entrance at this time. We apologize. However, once you get into the basement, the space is pretty much yours.
You will also have will have full use of a massive sofa, TV, and playroom. The 65" TV is complete with surround sound, Apple TV, HBO, Netflix and Hulu (it's yours for the stay!). French press coffee will be provided in the mornings upon request. It's a shared kitchen upstairs, and you're welcome to use the refrigerator and cook. The laundry room is also a busy place in our home, but upon request guests can run one load of laundry. Small amenities, such as shampoo, breakfast items, and a few bottles of water, will be provided to make your stay more enjoyable. Interaction with GuestsOur family of four lives upstairs. We have 2 small children who will be present. Please note: they wake up at 7 am every morning. We try to keep it quiet, but they are kids. If you really enjoy sleeping in, we can offer ear plugs or white noise machines. We also have a dog and cat who keep to themselves and are very friendly. The cat is not allowed in the guest bedroom but does have access to the basement. If you need him to stay upstairs, let us know and we can accommodate. During the evenings we mostly stay upstairs. We are happy to leave you to your own devices, but we think part of this journey is the cool people we meet. In other words, if you want to chat, we will chat back. We'd love to give you advice on where to go and what to do while you're visiting our beautiful area. The NeighborhoodWe live in the foothills of Colorado. Our house is one mile from Green Mountain, an amazing outdoor hiking/biking area. You can easily walk there (we do all of the time). We are a 10 to 15-minute drive to Red Rocks and live close to other great outdoor areas, such as Bear Creek and Golden. You can get to many of the major ski areas in just over an hour (without traffic). Getting AroundWe live 2 miles from Federal Center Station, which is the local train line. It's an easy, 30-minute train ride to Union Station, which is in the heart of downtown (no transfers necessary). It is a 20-minute drive to downtown. Parking is available for one car in front of our house. The airport in Denver is very far, no matter where you live, but it's a 45-minute drive from here. You can get a shuttle to and from Union Station for $11 and then take the train to Federal Station. From there, we are a short cab ride away. Other Things to NoteIf you are anxious to ski in Colorado this winter but can't spare the crazy prices for condos in the mountains, consider staying here instead. Without traffic, you can get to Keystone, A-Basin, and Winter Park in a little more than an hour. It's also a great spot to stop for the night if you get in late from the airport. We are about 10 minutes from I-70. Because we have two children, we think we're an ideal space for families. We have a spare high chair, pack and play, baby tub, and plenty of toys to share! We know a lot about the local trails and skiing areas. We are not loud and do not party (sorry, our coolness factor died with our first kid :).
