About Bob Cotton

When we bought our home in 2000, we were newly married and excited about living in the hip Highland Square neighborhood. Sadly, we outgrew our charming first home with the addition of our two boys. We've always loved this house and its location, and we are excited to share it with you.

Bob Cotton purchased this house in 2000

Why Bob Cotton chose Denver

Denver has been our home since 1994. It has gone through many changes over these years, but it still has a small town feel while offering world class arts, sports, and entertainment.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to local restaurants and businesses--you can leave your car safely parked at the house. Cozy and charming with enough space for everyone to spread out. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon/evening glass of wine on the front porch with views of the city and the mountains.

Great location but needs some fixes and deep cleaning

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the house for a month while looking for a house - amazing location! Close to LoDo and all the amazing restaurants on 32nd. Never saw the owner but was easily able to reach him and communicate. The house has two bedrooms on the main floor (queen bed & 2 single beds) and a king bed on the upstairs floor. One small bathroom where your knees touch the wall when using the toilet. There were 2-3 parking spots for the house in the alley and a small fenced yard out back that was great for our dog and cat.

Overall, the house needs some TLC and deep cleaning. There were some repairs the house needed: fixing the door handles, the kitchen faucet, burners on the stove not working, fence gate jamming up when it rained, and the non-covered parking equated to our car having extensive damage in the May hail storm.

But... We would stay there again. It was a great place to "live" when our family of three + dog + cat + 2 cars moved to Denver. There were games and toys provided at the house that our 3-yr old son loved. Very family and animal friendly house, and again, the location! Great place to stay.

Family-friendly, cozy and close to it all

  • 4 of 5

We found the property to be fairly comfortable for a family stay. We had four adults and a kid in our group. The house has toys and books for all ages and the dining table was great for meals. It was an easy walk to several restaurants and shopping. We were also able to walk to Sloan's Lake and enjoy a sunset and the view of the mountains. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of pillows and blankets. The swamp cooler made the upstairs bedroom really cold, so we needed those! The only reasons I wouldn't give it five stars are that we thought it could be cleaner (we found trash under some of the beds, etc.) and the kitchen was missing a few key prep items for me--the most important one being a colander. We also would have liked another bathroom for that many people, but we knew there was only one when we booked. Bob was also very accommodating by allowing us to check in early. I would recommend Highlands Cottage for anyone wanting an place close to Mile High Stadium or Highlands Square.

Excellent choice for small families!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this property! The upstairs bed was super comfortable, and our kids really enjoyed the toys that were available for them to play with! It is in very close proximity to everything downtown Denver has to offer. The owner was also very helpful when issues arose. If my family and I return to Denver, we will definitely consider staying in the Highlands Cottage again!

Fun in Denver

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Clean, comfortable, and nice and cool upon our arrival on a 100 degree day. Parking was easy, with quick access to highways. Our day in the Rockies was fantastic - the views amazing!! The YMCA of the Rockies is a great place for a beautiful, reasonable horseback ride. Ice cream at the the Sweet Cow a short walk from the house was worth the wait!!

My house is located 3 blocks from the hip Highlands Square--restaurants, shopping, bars, coffee shops, and spas--all within walking distance. 2 miles to downtown Denver--too far to walk? Public transportation picks up a half a block away and takes you right to the heart of Denver.
