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 West Highland

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 home and very responsive owner!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our girls weekend - located near enough that most things were a short drive but it was also peacefully quiet at night. The house was perfect for 6 of us and provided a relaxing environment to come back to after exploring all day. Bob was very easy to work with and responsive to all our questions. Would 10/10 recommend!

Comfortable, well-stocked house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 5, with plenty of comfortable seating in the living room and dining room, a well-supplied kitchen and comfortable beds. The location (walking distance to the Highlands shopping district and easy access to downtown) couldn't have been better. The owner replied to my emails quickly and was courteous and easy to deal with.

Great place for us to stay as we visited our son.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this place. Our son lives just down the road so it was very convenient. Inside was spotless when we arrived (so important for us!) and had all the amenities we needed. Bob was great to answer my text questions and I'm sure we'd book this again with our next visit. Thanks Again Bob!

Very comfortable & cozy

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Bob's cottage over Labor Day weekend with some friends. We loved how quaint and cozy the layout of the house was, with a huge loft area for the girls to get ready in. The back yard area provided a perfect place for us to enjoy the perfect weather and grill out. The Highlands area is very convenient to downtown Denver, and has plenty of accommodations within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again, thanks Bob!

Small house right in the city

  • 5 of 5

We (my wife, my 2.5 year old, my mother-in-law and I) recently stayed at the Highlands cottage for a 4 night trip and absolutely loved it. Though the house is small, it certainly makes up for it with its three bedrooms and open living room. Even with my MIL with us, we were never on top of one another and had plenty of space. This house was walking distance to the farmers market on Lowell and 32nd as well as some great restaurants and shops. Quick drive to Tennyson, downtown and pretty much anywhere we needed to go. I would definitely stay here again.

Very cute older home, great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. We had hoped for a little more, setup outdoor living space, but honestly it was too hot to spend much time outside while we were there. The location was great for walking to restaurants, ice cream and a Farmers Market. Overall a good experience and a good place to stay.

Breakfast on the Edge -- CLOSED
Great place for breakfast. Try the pulled pork benedict.
Sushi Hai
Great sushi and Karoake on Friday nights!
Mondo Vino
Grab a six pack or a nice bottle of wine. Ask for Dewey for wine recommendations.

Car: not necessary

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.
