About Carolee

I chose Denver in 1995. Coming here after the loss of my husband. We lived many years in the Northern California mountains where we raised our family. This just seemed the right spot for me. A city with both excitement and beauty. The mountains only a stones throw away. I have two darling grandson, that enjoy the Colorado life. I also divide my time between here the mountains and Mexico. I have other rental properties.

Carolee purchased this townhome in 1999

Why Carolee chose Cheesman Park

I love Denver. Moving here from S Cal, I knew I wanted to be a part of these exciting city. I drove all over the city getting my barrings for sometime .. Old homes were my focus. My first year here I bought a 100 year old loft in a church. Cozy and unique. Then one day driving down Race, there it was. The sign had just gone up. It was pretty rough. Walking in the front door sold me. The entry and the gorgeous staircase I knew this was it. Lots of hard work a year later, I moved back was truly a labor of love...the neighborhood, with lots of fun cafes, great coffee spots, two blocks to the Botanical Gardens and across the street from Cheesman Park was just what I needed at the time. It's been a house for me.

Our own BnB for the week, tranquil

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this property.... wow

Our flight landed late with no time to hit the grocery store and when we arrived a nice bottle of red wine, some beers and fantastic cookies were waiting for us on the counter.

This is not just a house for rent but rather your own private BnB oasis. I'm so used to renting houses and arriving with nothing to be found on site, you wanna have 6 people over for dinner and there are only 5 plates, 6 forks and no pans to fry up some eggs.... well this is not the case.

The house is stocked with the best of everything, bedding, linens, Webber BBQ, condiments for cooking, etc, etc, etc.

We chose to rent a house rather then hotel as this was a business trip and we wanted to have a home base to entertain, cook, hanging out with new business partners, etc.

Well this is the house for it, it has seating for everyone and wow is it comfy. You can chill on bar stools in the kitchen, sit at the extendable kitchen table in a room with cool exposed brick walls or move to either the den or family room which all features beautiful victorian furniture, seating for up to 10 people very comfy.

My favourite feature is that all of these rooms are wired with speakers and volume can be controlled on the walls. You can plug your Ipod or phone into the stereo system and go go go.... We just loved this feature, the music can even be played on the upper floor bedrooms.

The main floor also features a cool work space with printer which we liked for late night work, just another cool area in the house.

Upper floors is excellent with two stunning bathrooms, two gorgeous bedrooms with sitting area for late night reading or work, lots of lights and a extra room with high end actual queen sized futon and top shelf bedding, you're not sleeping on a floor mat thats for sure.

Lots of killer artwork everywhere not to be overlooked!

Parking is a breeze, there is a garage that fits a car and parking pad right next to it, this access the back deck and door to kitchen so you can park and be inside the house in seconds.

The location is excellent though we spent most of our time in the car on day trips, we did not make the best use of the area but its Denver Proper!

Overall we can't wait to return to this property in the very near future, the pictures do not do the house justice!

Beautiful home

My family of six enjoyed our stay at this home. Owner was very responsive leading up to the visit. The home was clean upon arrival and allowed us enough space to relax comfortably. Location is great, I’d stay here again on future visits to Denver

Holiday treasure!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay at this property. The location is fantastic, with a beautiful park only a few block away. The living room had the most comfortable, cozy couch that accomodated all of us for relaxing down time. The kitchen was extremely well-stocked. We were able to cook our Thanksgiving dinner with ease. All of the beds were so very comfortable, with nice linens. The bathrooms were convenient to all and clean and modern. We enjoyed all the furnishings of the house. Very nice decorating touches! Over the past few years we have stayed at different properties in Denver and this one tops our list!

Great location, Quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We had a magnificent time during our stay in Denver! This home is very charming and was warm and inviting with the sweet treats left by the owners. The location is fantastic. We were under 5 miles for so many major attractions. We walked to many restaurants as well.

We had our little ones with us during our stay and had to stay on top of them quite a bit due to all of the art and fragile items around the home.

The home was spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the showers were incredible!

We would definitely consider this home again if we ever venture back out to Denver!

Location couldn't get any better..We are in Capital Hill one of the most fun and interesting neighborhoods ..directly across the street from Cheesman Park, wonderful for that morning run or just an afternoon stroll. The neighborhood is an eclectic mix of beautiful homes, hi-rises and a few apartments.

The Botanical Gardens, just a short 5 minute walk. A beautiful spot with a great music venue in the summer and lots of activities going on all year.

Rental bicycles are available outside the Botanical Gardens and at 12th Street and Columbine. You can catch the bus at the end of the block to go Downtown(16th Street, Convention Center, Preforming Arts Center, Civic Center Park and more)...

For convenient food shopping..Whole Foods is just 6 blocks and King Soopers Market is 5 blocks.

Loads of great eateries close.. from the best breakfast places, lots of ethnic spots, to some fantastic, 'written up' restaurants featured in 5280 Magazine. City Park is just 2 miles, with golf, the zoo, I- Max Theater, boating in summer and museums. Great Farmers Market in the Spring.

Cherry Creek village is 3 miles away, with some of the best boutique shopping, great restaurants, lots of's a fun spot to window shop. It has many banks, a Whole Foods and Safeway.
