About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

This home provides an ideal escape for vacationers and a quiet working atmosphere for those on business. Located near both the Colorado and the Yale stations of the Southeast Lightrail, you have fast and easy access to downtown and the Denver Tech Center. Many shopping and fitness conveniences are a short walk away, and it's even closer to tennis and swimming at nearby Eisenhower Park.

The charm of this early fifties vintage home, coupled with it's updated conveniences, give it an irresistible appeal. Classic and understated touches throughout the home remind you of the natural beauty that is so abundant outside your door. The home sits on a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood street, just 10 houses north of a beautiful public golf course. The large, fenced backyard is ideal for cookouts and child's play.

The bedrooms are outfitted with high-quality linens and plush pillows. Each has a dresser and a closet for ample storage space.

The kitchen is an efficient layout and equipped with all the conveniences you'd expect: a dishwasher, microwave, and gas stove. There are stainless steel pots and pans, dishes and flatware for eight.

The living room boasts a large LCD TV with cable and On-Demand, a stereo system and a DVD player. There are a few DVDs in the home that you are welcome to view, or you can choose one of the hundreds on FREE On-Demand movies that are available to watch.

If you bring your own laptop with wireless capabilities, our WIFi works great on the porch or in the backyard. There is also a full sized laundry room downstairs with a front loading washer and dryer. Should you need to press your clothes, the ironing board and iron are located there, along with supplies to run a load.

When you are lured outside by Colorado's great weather, you'll find a gas grill and table and chairs in the backyard. Beyond that, the public golf course, tennis courts, walking and running trails through natural areas, a YMCA and 24 Hour Fitness are all so close you can leave the car in the garage.

Back at your Colorado cottage, sit back and gaze at the dappled green of the old maple in the backyard while you enjoy Denver's cool summer evenings, or enjoy the colors of the fall when the air turns crisp. Your tranquility will be complete when you snuggle into those soft sheets and slip into restful sleep.

In addition, we have a large furnished downstairs, perfect for games or play when the weather is inclement.

About Jeanette M Rockers

Jeanette and Kathy, along with Kathy's husband, Brian purchased the Jackson House in 2008 in order to provide a cool retreat for Kathy and Brian's family, who are from the Phoenix area. Jeanette has lived in the Wellshire neighborhood for more than 30 years and she is a licensed acupuncturist. Kathy and Brian are high school teachers in Phoenix, which gives them some time in the summer to enjoy Denver.

Why Jeanette M Rockers chose Denver

Because Jeanette has lived in this neighborhood for so many years, we knew it was a solid investment. We liked Jackson House the moment we saw it. The location is ideal for active families and quiet vacationers. The proximity of local restaurants, conveniences, and access to downtown and the Tech Center via freeways and Light Rail makes the home's location particularly attractive. It is a functional floorplan, making wise use of the square footage. The great surprise was what a terrific neighborhood community it turned out to be.

What makes this house unique

Brian and Kathy stay at the house each year and their children enjoy the fenced, grassy yard and the Legos in the basement, as well as the many children's books kept at the home. Kathy appreciates the easy-to-use kitchen and lush backyard for the children, while Brian doesn't get to enjoy the house. He only works on it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making our stay in Denver comfortable and stress-free. The house is great, loved the neighborhood, too. Yummy, close-by restaurants: Sushi Den on Pearl Street and Little India on Downing - just in case anyone is looking for a recommendation!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as described. There are 3 bedrooms and 1 bath all located together on the main level. Downstairs there is a master with en suite bathroom. Also a twin bed in the lower living area. It was "cozy" but plenty of room for our group and nice to have the living spaces up and downstairs to spread out. The owner was very helpful and made an extra trip to make sure we got a couple items we left behind before heading to the airport.

Perfect Home to share with our adult children

  • 5 of 5

What a comfortable home. It is much bigger than it looks from the out side. The yard is gorgeous and we enjoyed fresh snow clinging to the trees. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for breakfast and supper. We were out and about during the day - lots to do in that area. The whole home was very clean and especially the bathrooms. Our children were adults but it's a perfect place for a family with children - great fenced back yard. Grocery shopping was close but since we were driving we brought some things with us - like our favorite coffee and some special wine. We were greeted when we finally arrived and given a tour. They provide a printout that tells you about the things you may have forgotten to ask. We highly recommend this home and hopefully we can rent it when we return to visit. Just a heads up - don't wait too long, this home is in demand.

Great and Comfortable Place

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled from North Carolina for a visit to Denver. We found this house which was perfect for a larger group. Very roomy and comfortable. The patio was wonderful and we grilled and enjoyed the outside. Jeanette, the owner, was so very accommodating and easy. It definitely contributed to our wonderful visit to the Mile High City!

Great house in a cute neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. Everyone had their own room and the beds were super comfortable. We did a lot of hiking and visiting friends and family and it was a nice location for all we wanted to do. The neighborhood is a nice urban neighborhood with a great park within walking distance.

Law School Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Jackson House May 19-22, 2016 while attending my son's law school graduation. We found the house comfortable. It was located in a quiet neighborhood. It was well appointed with a great backyard. The grill and outdoor seating were a great addition. We hosted a grad party and were able to cook and entertain 15 ppl with room to spare. It was convenient to Denver University and I-25. Jeanette was very helpful and easy to contact. It was perfect for our multigenerational family's needs. The Jackson House made a great weekend better.

Anniversary/Friends Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were in Denver for an Anniversary/Friends trip with 7 total people. The house was amazing! Fully stocked kitchen and a beautiful backyard! The rooms were well kept and the basement area was way better than expected. The location of the house was very centrally located to everything! Jeanette was always available if we needed anything. We would definitely stay again and recommend this house if you're in Denver. Thanks again Jeanette for all your hospitality
