The SpaceYou'll be staying in a brick row-house style townhome built in late 2010. It is a 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath, two-story townhome with a private landscaped patio. You can reserve one or two adjoining guest bedrooms. Each bedroom has a double bed with memory foam topped mattress. One bedroom has a 32" TV with basic cable, Netflix, and Amazon Prime video.
Each bedroom has a comfortable reading chair, reading lamp, alarm clock, luggage rack, closet with hangers, privacy lock, and black-out curtains for those who sleep late. An ironing board and iron are available in the closet outside the guest bedrooms.
There is a private bath exclusively for guest use adjacent to the guest bedrooms, as well as a half-bath on the main floor for use as needed as well. I rent to only one party at a time, whether you utilize one or both bedrooms. Guest AccessYour guest bedroom(s) are on the second floor. But you are welcome to enjoy the first floor family room with 37" TV and gas fireplace--a nice place to relax after skiing.
In the summer, you might take your morning coffee on the private landscaped patio as you listen to the water-feature. It's also a great place to sip a glass of wine at the end of the day. Or you might choose to grill a burger or bratwurst on the Weber gas grill.
You may also feel free to use the kitchen to prepare a hot breakfast or all your meals if you're looking for a place to stay where you can maintain a special diet. The Safeway grocery store is just 1/4 mile away. Feel free to help yourself to tea or coffee while you're here.
If you have an Apple device, you'll be able to print documents on my Airprint accessible printer. Wifi is available.
If you need to wash a load of laundry, you're welcome to use the high efficiency washer and dryer. Interaction with GuestsI am your live-in host and I occupy the master bedroom on the second floor. There is a folding Shoji screen room divider (in the upstairs linen closet) that helps to create a more private/apartment-like feel for the two guest bedrooms and bath portion of the second floor.
I've always enjoyed staying at bed and breakfast inns and would love to do anything I can to help you feel at home. I'm happy to provide restaurant suggestions in the hip NW Denver neighborhoods nearby. But you're also welcome to come and go on your own and enjoy a nice quiet stay. The NeighborhoodMy townhome is the historic part of Westminster, right in the Arts District. You can stroll around the sculpture garden park (3 blocks away) and stop in at the art galleries on your way. This block has been completely redeveloped in anticipation of the new commuter rail station which opened July 2016.
If you like to eat out for breakfast, there is a wonderful bakery next door that makes amazing cherry turnovers and breakfast burritos as well as other tasty treats. Open 8-4, Tuesday-Saturday.
If you like to bike, there are lots of paved bike trails with mountain views just blocks from where you'll be staying. Bring your bike and check it out!
Historic Westminster is just 3 miles from the Tennyson Street district, home to great restaurants like "Hops and Pies" (beer and pizza) and "Parisi" (Italian) as well as book stores and art galleries.
Within 4 miles is the Denver Highlands district with trendy restaurants like "Lingers" (used to be a mortuary!), "Cafe Brazil", and "Duos". Lots of boutique shops in the Highlands area, as well. These are the cutting edge neighborhoods to explore in northwest Denver! Getting AroundThere is available, free street parking right in front of my building. There is also a free parking lot behind my building available for overnight (but not daytime) parking.
My townhome is a 25-30 minute drive from DIA on your way to the mountains.
If you are taking a seminar at Regis University, it is a 5 minute drive (2 miles) to campus (RTD bus service is available as well). If you're headed into Denver, you can walk to the new commuter rail B-Line train station (7 blocks). It is a 10 minute non-stop train ride to Union Station in the heart of Denver! You can also take a train (A-Line) from the airport to Union Station and then the B-Line out to Westminster Station and walk to my home.
If you're driving to Boulder or Denver, you're just 1/3 mile from the freeway to Boulder/Denver (Hwy 36). If you're headed to the mountains, you're 1.5 miles from the freeway heading up to the slopes. Other Things to NoteI work during the day and have a pretty flexible schedule, but getting in is no problem if I'm not around. I have a keyless lock on the front door and will provide you a unique 4 digit code to use during your stay. I am also almost always available via cell phone and text for any questions that may arise.
The guest bedrooms are on the front of my home on a two-lane road. There can be traffic noise during rush hour. Sleeping with windows open may feel too nosey, but guests have the ability to control the temperature for air conditioning.
