  • Great Family Getaway

    "We spent a long weekend with our two adult children and their significant others and it was the perfect spot for us. We enjoyed playing bocce ball and horseshoes and took some long hikes in the area. The kitchen was perfect for our son-in-law who is the chef in the family. We also enjoyed cocktails on the deck of an evening and it was just the right spot for all of us to get together for some much needed family time. We would definitely stay there again!"

  • Awesome!

    "The pictures do not do this townhouse justice. We arrived in the late afternoon and were exhausted, we walked up the stairs and fell in love. We stayed Friday to Monday and it was perfectly located for all of the family activities that were going on. We had a relatively easy time finding places to shop and eat in the area. We had 4 adults and 1 teenager and there was plenty of hot water for showers. We were very pleased."

  • Close to everything, nice apartment

    "My colleague and I attended a conference in town and wanted an apartment instead of a less exciting hotel room. The very fresh apartment with its two bedrooms and two bathrooms is great for two persons, two couples or a family. The owner Bruce was very helpful with information about the neighbourhood. The free internet worked flawlessly. I did some web shopping during the stay and Bruce helped to arrange dropoffs with the friendly staff at the management office. The free tram is nearby, and so is the newly renovated Union Station. You can reach most areas downtown just by walking if you want to. There is a small park nearby with a bicycle rental station. Hop on and bike along the nice river banks through town! Don't miss all the fantastic micro breweries throughout the city! We visited 11 of them during the week, having several beer samples at each. Great Divide and River North was toppping our list. The only negative thing we have to say about Denver is all the seemingless homeless people with surprisingly many young adults. I wonder if the legal marijuana has something to do about it... If you arrive later in May the mountain roads in the Rockies have opened but, unfortunately for us, we were too early in the season. Oh yes, bring an umbrella in May :-)"

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.
