(NOTE: The City of Denver is taxing Airbnb hosts at a rate of at least 28%.)
Our home in Congress Park is close to music, eats, and some of Denver's longtime staples like Pete's Kitchen, the Bluebird Theater, the Tattered Cover Book Store and newer ones like Voodoo Doughnut and Atomic Cowboy/Sully's/Denver Biscuit Company. Our location is also within walking distance of popular bars, restaurants, museums and parks, not to mention a Sprouts grocery store right around the corner.
Your room is the largest in the house. There is a comfortable queen bed. The room comfortably sleeps four.
The rest of the house:
The old and the new come together in this 1906 Frank Snell historical house of Denver. Original wood floors on the first floor are swept and polished but still show the character of over one hundred years of residents. The kitchen has an old exposed brick wall next to a new stove and microwave. The refrigerator and dishwasher are also updated and new, brushed stainless steel.
Walk upstairs past the landing midway where you can view the backyard from one of the many original rolled-glass windows in the house. The rooms are private, cleaned on a daily basis, and have chairs for seating.
Sun shines in through the glass block windows in the bathroom with old brass fixtures and a porcelain bathtub.
Access is available to the front porch, back patio, kitchen, laundry room/half-bathroom, dining room area, living room (during the day; on some days, I will be in the living room, relaxing), the upstairs bathroom, and of course, your room.
Interakcija s gostima
Mostly, we are available through messaging during the day. She works during the day, and I'm usually busy with house stuff or writing.
Pull the front door towards you before turning the key to unlock; if you hear a click, then you had to pull the door for it to set.
The upstairs door can be noisy because some people slam it to shut it. I suggest pushing it slowly and locking the latch.
No smoking in the rooms.
New Listing. This is a new room, so I don't have a lot of reviews on it yet, but I do have another room in the house that has many reviews. Look for "Comfy Room in Historic Home" and you can get an idea of the house and room.

I loved Colorado when I visited in 2004 for snowboarding at Breckenridge. I loved Denver in 2006 when I visited for a worldwide intelligence conference. Friends always told me that there was so much to do here. So, three years later, when I made Master Sergeant, I escaped the Pentagon and D.C. to be here in Denver. After I left the Air Force, I studied creative writing at the University of Colorado Denver for two years and then left to study another two years at New York University.
I came back to Denver because I missed it, and now I know why. I love New York, and I will go back for visits and events, but I'm here now and plan to stay. I've traveled to many places around the world and here in the states, and always had a want for change in my life. Variety, maybe that's why Denver jives well with me. The days can be scorchers in the summer, but pleasant, cool, and dry at night. We have our torrential downpours and the muggy aftermath that reminds me of the humidity of southwestern Pennsylvania where I grew up, sitting quietly on a Monday morning, more than once, with my classmates after a Steelers loss to the Broncos.
I ride my Trek road bike through the Congress Park neighborhood, across Colfax (Kerouac!), through City Park’s roundabouts, on to 16th Street Mall, through a mix of chain stores and restaurants and then some of our favorite local joints like Appaloosa Grill with live music and Paramount Café, which is attached to a theatre that’s rumored to be haunted; I never saw any ghosts there, just Aziz Ansari (and I laughed my ass off from row J!). I take a left on Wewatta by Union Station and hit the Cherry Creek trail down to Glendale where soccer moms, tourists, and yes, I, frequent boutiques and take breaks from the heat at the Cherry Creek Mall or stop into the Cherry Cricket for a good burger. From Cherry Creek, it takes less than fifteen minutes through residential streets (a little uphill until 6th Avenue) back up to Congress Park where we live.
Of course, I forgot to mention dozens of places. Sancho’s (Grateful Dead bar), the Denver Center for the Performing Arts where I volunteer as an usher sometimes, Uptown (Steuben’s, M Burger, yoga, Fluid Coffee Bar, City Grille), Capitol Hill and all the old houses and apartments (all my Cap Hill friends will give me hell for not saying anything here. There are a lot of cool bars in Capitol Hill, Sexy Pizza until midnight and Benny Blanco’s until 3 a.m.), Wash Park and the University of Denver, the Platte River and Commons Park West (by the *Millennium Bridge), LoHi (Lower Highlands), LoDo (Lower Downtown; Neal Cassady’s homeless dad was rumored to run Larimer St back when gentrification still hadn’t touched it many years ago), the Convention Center and Blue Bear, Civic Park, the Capitol, the Denver Public Library, Broadway (Irish Rover, 3 Kings burlesque on Mondays, Fainting Goat, and dozens of other places on this long thoroughfare), and did you see the wild blue horse at Denver International Airport?**
Outside of Denver, there are Morrison and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Central City and Blackhawk casinos, Golden and hiking, Estes Park, and don’t forget the hot springs. I hear they’re great for your health. I’m pretty sure I didn’t catch everything, but that’s okay because I will update this when I can. Until then, I’m looking forward to your messages.
* I recommend walking across the Millennium Bridge if you’re sightseeing brings you that way. Check out LoHi.
** I bike during the day and sometimes late at night and take photos of these places. Check Instagram, #denverAllNightRocker.
