About Laura Jacobsen

We live in Fort Collins but love our trips to Denver--especially around the holidays and for some of the great festivals in the summer. This home gives us the opportunity to bring our family and friends with no hassle. Since we've owned this property we've been continually surprised at what a great area University Hills is.

Laura Jacobsen purchased this house in 2013

Why Laura Jacobsen chose Denver

It's hip but it's also well appointed to comfortably accommodate a family or group of friends.

What makes this house unique

The best of both worlds--no need for a car or being stuck in traffic with the light rail right there--get to downtown in a snap. But also enjoy a spacious home and backyard. Use our bikes and bring your dog.

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this home with 4 other friends for a 5 days and it was wonderful. The house was very clean, nicely decorated, had plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, and supplies. Perfect location for quick access to downtown Denver or many of the small towns around the area, which we did explore. Light rail very close and convenient for saving money on parking downtown as well. Owner always got back to me within a few hours during the day. Appreciated recommendations for things to do in the area. Would recommend this place to family and friends if they are looking for am awesome vacation spot/home! Also would stay again if I'm ever coming back that way!

Perfect place for a weekend in Denver

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a weekend stay in this house and can't say enough good things. The backyard was huge and had a ton of space to hang out and grill. The house had plenty of space for our group of 12 and was an excellent home base for our weekend in Denver!
