Golden is uniquely situated at the western extremity of the Denver metro area, yet separated from the city and its suburban neighbors by North and South Table Mountains. This geographic separation creates a truly small town atmosphere, yet provides all the conveniences a big city provides. The charming and vibrant downtown is complete with Art Galleries, shops with local fare, and dining with everything from deli sandwiches, wine bar, Thai and fine Mediterranean cuisine.


Only 40 minuets from one of the largest airports in the country, access by air is outstanding. Further, 4 major highways intersect in Golden making access to all areas of Denver and Boulder a breeze. Golden is also within an hour and a half of several major ski resorts including Loveland, Copper Mountain and Breckenridge, making day trips to the slopes within reach. Beginning in April 2013, the new Denver Light Rail begins service from the Golden terminus to downtown Denver, and connections beyond. Take a trip into the city for a Rockies or Avalanche game, or simply to enjoy shopping or dining in a truly cosmopolitan city, while leaving your car at home.

Golden Condo

  • 5 of 5

I work in the hotel/hospitality industry and as a former QA Inspector I have high expectations for any vacation rental or hotel I stay at. After arriving in Golden and at the condo after 10 hours of flight delays and car rental problems I was grateful to see the descriptions and pictures of this condo were accurate – in fact we quickly determined the condo’s appearance and amenities exceeded our expectations and was even more comfortable (and clean) than the pictures portrayed. Central air conditioning would have been a nice perk but fans were provided and the condo temperature still stayed comfortable even though we arrived during the hottest weekend of the year.

All communication with the owner were specific and any questions I had were promptly addressed and answered by the owner – and the deposit refund was promptly refunded (I received within 4 days of my departure).

Overall I would highly recommend this location and would stay there again if I am ever in the Denver/Golden area.

Great Bend, Kansas

Perfect location, quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Golden for a couple of days to relax. The house was close enough to downtown Golden, that we didn't need to drive our car. There was a very nice walking trail along Clear Creek, which was a couple of blocks away. The house was very comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied with utinsels and cookware. We would definitely stay here again and we would recommend this house if you're going to visit Golden.

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and needed a place for 4. Brian has a beautiful and cozy home that is very convenient for walking into town. This is on a very quiet street near a park with access to a walking trail to town. We would definitely stay here again.

50th Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I came back to Colorado for my 50th high school reunion and didn't want to bee cooped up in a hotel. I found this townhouse for the cost of a hotel room and really enjoyed the space and flexibility to fix meals, etc. The place is next to a great park and trails along Clear Creek and close to downtown Golden. It was clean and everything work, and the owner was great to work with. I would definitely come back.

Great place to stay in Golden.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the townhouse. It is located on a quite street, next to a park. The location is great for walking downtown or by the river. Golden is a wonderful town to stay with the views, convenience to the mountains, Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheater. We would definitely stay at this location again.
