Recent Denver Area property reviews

  • Amazing

    "Cabin in the Pike is a little piece of heaven. We were so fortunate to have stayed there. The property is beautiful, and the owners and caretakers couldn't be nicer. They were quick to answer questions very gracious and helpful hosts. The cabin has everything that you could need and it is kept in pristine condition. The photos shared online were accurate, but it is even nicer than the pictures can show. The large windows throughout the home allow for beautiful views. The kitchen is well-stocked. Cabin in the Pike backs up to the Pike Forest, so there are amazing opportunities to see wildlife including bears and bull elk, although we didn't personally see any. Cabin in the Pike is nested in the woods so you do need to drive to get to places. This is a welcome trade-off for a home that is centered in a town. What is in the area: The closest big town is Castle Rock, which is just a short drive away. Cabin in the Pike is abut a 40 minute drive from Red Rocks Amphitheater, which is a must see. Devil's Head Fire Lookout is great place to visit too. We only stayed three nights, and were so sad to leave. We would definitely recommend this beautiful home."

  • Great USA Get-A-Way!

    "8 Women, 7 nights, and enough red, white and blue to open a patriotic theme store! Joe and Cari, we had such a wonderful time in our home away from home. Our Solheim Cup experience was a blast, and it started of on a high note with the flags, champagne, and Go USA note that were so thoughtfully waiting in the kitchen for our arrival. There was plenty of room for all eight of us to get ready in the mornings, mill around in the kitchen, and watch different TV programs at night. The 3 car garage was also nice so our cars were cooler in the summer heat. Shopping and great restaurants were close....a couple of us even went indoor skydiving a couple of miles from the house. I highly recommend this home and hope to return again myself. Thanks again Cari and Joe, for sharing your lovely home!"

  • one of our favorite places

    "Our family has rented several home over the year as a home base while we vacation together. This being the best by far. We have 3 adult children, 4 grandchildren and we love to have a place together. The sun room turned into a great play room, the pond was a great attraction and the kids enjoyed counting the fish, and sitting on the bridge. The hammock was fun place to talk and tell stories. The hot tub was a wonderful way to end the day. Near the house is a path way the goes for miles to walk or run on, and a park down the road with a play ground and big open space to play. We had kites we wanted to use, the park was great for that purpose. With the sites Denver has to offer and this house to stay in, it was a great vacation."

  • Great condo and location

    "we recently spent 5 nights at this condo. What a great place. The complex is located in a neighborhood that we felt safe to walk around in and just hang out. The condo is completely updated; great kitchen, washer/dryer/ and an awesome kingsize bed! The adjacent yard has a grill, table, and chairs. The condo is immaculate with plenty of towels and soaps, kitchen amenities, including coffee! The AC was great as we hit 95+ on all days! Parking is off street in the back. While we ate every meal in the apt, there are great restaurants nearby, check out Highland Pacific Seafood & Oyster Bar, we did hit that one up one night! Simply delicious. Restaurants are nearby and if you don't have a car use LYFT or UBER to get you there. Jessica met us outside when we arrived and gave us the tour and showed us the ropes. She was always a text away if needed, we had no questions. Downtown Denver is very close. All and all a great condo in a great neighborhood and a great host! Thanks again, we will be back. A definite keeper!"

Denver Area Travel Tips

Denver Vacation Rentals in a Picturesque Setting

Nicknamed “Mile High City,” Denver is exactly 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) high, making the official elevation one mile above sea level. It was established in 1858 when gold was discovered where the South Platte River and Cherry Creek intersect. Prospectors flooded the area and by 1860, there were 100,000 people in Denver. It is now a thriving urban city with museums, shops and historical architecture, surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains. With its top-notch sports teams and excellent reputation for dining, Denver is a great base for enjoying an action-packed vacation.

What Denver Vacation Homes Have to Offer

Renting a fully furnished apartment or log cabin is the best way for families and couples to enjoy the great outdoor space around Denver. Offering more amenities and space than a typical hotel suite, a vacation home makes a great base for guests to come and go as they please. With a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, family meals can be quickly and easily prepared, making for considerable savings. It also enables guests to fully appreciate the environment and “live like a local,” if only for a week. With plenty of space and comfortable living areas, a Denver vacation home allows everyone to spread out and have their own space, with quiet areas for reading away from the TV.

Best way to Travel to Denver

Denver International Airport is just 19 miles from the center of Denver and has plenty of flights daily from all over the U.S. and internationally. Rent a hire car or 4x4 and your fun Denver vacation is about to begin. For those who prefer to take a road trip, Denver is easy to reach from Interstate 70, 76 or 25. A vehicle is advisable for getting around the area although mountain biking, kayaking and walking are also popular.

Places to Visit Around Denver

The downtown historic district of Denver is known as LoDo (Lower Downtown) and has a wealth of historic buildings and landmarks. It is also a great place for dining. Further afield, the Three Sisters Park at Evergreen is a great place for hiking and mountain biking with spectacular views of the Three Sisters Peaks. One of the most popular areas around Denver is Golden, home to the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave. It now houses Native American artifacts and memorabilia from his Wild West shows. Golden is also the location of the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum. The Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater has some extraordinary sandstone formations which date back over millions of years. A 1.4-mile trail loops around the area, allowing for the best views. Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison is another unique attraction in an area which is rich in fossils and runs from New Mexico to Canada.

Things to do From Your Denver Lodging

Things to do in and around Denver are almost limitless. Denver has more breweries than any other city in the U.S. so a visit to one of these, coupled with a tasting experience, is a must. The area has many mountain and urban trails for biking and hiking. Shopping, museums, historic attractions and the zoo all make the city area very appealing. Beyond the city, there are hot springs to enjoy, amusement parks, whitewater rafting, train rides, gold mining tours, rock climbing, spelunking (exploring caves), antiquing, sailing, wildlife viewing, bird-watching, fishing, swimming, golf and tennis. During the winter season, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, sledding, snow tubing and ice skiing can be added to the list! There is plenty for all the family to enjoy on a Denver vacation.

Local Weather at Denver Vacation Rentals

Denver enjoys a pleasant semi-arid climate at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Low humidity, moderate temperatures and plenty of sunshine draw visitors all year long. Metro Denver reportedly has 300 sunny days a year. The higher mountains in the area receive a significant amount of snowfall during the winter months.
