Overview

About the property

Beautifully decorated 9th-floor one-bedroom with city views, great location.

Centrally located, close to concerts and sports events. Located in the heart of downtown, on the edge of the exciting Union Station redevelopment. The neighborhood has been changing so dramatically that our photographs of the skyline are different every month (you'll see a range of views, from an empty expanse just a few years ago to a brand-new vibrant cityscape now).

Union Station now offers full rail service to the airport, so getting around without a car is easier than ever. Or you can travel by Amtrak east (Chicago and beyond) or West, to the mountains or on to Salt Lake City or California. There is a morning train to the ski resort of Winter Park (with a stop in Winter Park itself on ski weekends or in the nearby town of Fraser any day, with a free bus to Winter Park Resort).

In just a few years, scores of restaurants and bars have been added to the immediate neighborhood, along with two large full-service grocery stores (Whole Foods and King Sooper).

Better deal than a downtown Denver hotel. Monthly furnished executive or corporate rentals.

About Kirsten Liston

Ned and Kirsten live just outside of Denver and recently fell in love with the exciting, central LoDo/Riverfront Park location. We have three other VRBO properties--a two-bedroom Denver condo and also ski condos in Breckenridge and Winter Park--and we're thrilled this beautiful condo and its location right in the heart of downtown.

Kirsten Liston purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kirsten Liston chose LoDo

Glass House has the greatest views of the Denver skyline and the best pool/picnic deck of any building in Denver. And the location is perfect, right on a park and just a short walk to downtown or the Highlands. We've looked at most buildings in Denver and decided nothing matched Glass House for elegance, location, views, and conveniences.

What makes this condo unique

We looked at multiple units in Glass House and patiently waited for the perfect opportunity. Many units had less appealing views or floor plans. Some had had great views and layouts but were on such high floors that the idea of stepping onto (or even near) the balcony was a scary prospect. Our unit is on the 9th floor facing the Denver Skyline and overlooking the Union Station development; with the pool deck right below on the 8th floor, the balcony feels much more comfortable. The trees and landscaping of the 8th-floor deck add visual interest and a sense that you're still part of the natural world. And the views are unbeatable.

Great Lodo condo.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our month long stay in the GlassHouse condo. Although the place relatively small it is efficiently laid out and very stylish. Another big plus in the 1st floor gym that is "top drawer". Would stay there again. Richard

Elegant, convenient, bright, pampering in the hub of Denver!! Truly magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve been to Denver before - but I never experienced it like I did in this wonderful, clean, tasteful apartment that was smack dab in the middle of hip restaurants, great walks, a wonderful park, shopping and all the culture you want to experience. There’s a great Whole Foods and King Sooper in very close walking distance. The apartment building has a welcoming gym with lots of classes to sign up for. The Union station train to and from the airport was so easy!! Before I got to the apartment I wondered how noisy the trains would be. Not an issue at all! If Kirsten and Ned were lovely and answered all my questions. My husband and I were on a work holiday. It was a pleasure to work in the apartment and one of the best holidays we’ve ever had! Thanks Kirsten and Ned!! Janis and Michael Sernik

Condo at the Glass House, Denver, Colorado

  • 5 of 5

Location - location - location! This condo is located in the heart of Lodo and is within easy walking distance of the best of what Denver has to offer. Grocery shopping, restaurants, bars, museums, shops, sports venues, music, botanical gardens, and more. We walked miles exploring and trying new experiences. There is even a really nice nail salon just down the street. The condo itself is beautiful and we loved its open, spacious atmosphere. We hosted a family dinner and easily fed and accommodated 12 people! The kitchen was well equipped with lots of dishes, glasses, flatware, nice pans, and even spices. All small appliances were furnished as well. The bedroom and bathroom were equally well supplied with the stacked washer/dryer located in the bedroom closet. It was cold when we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the 8th floor patio area, but it is a lovely space.

The building is beautiful and the security is excellent. Very friendly and very pet friendly. Also a very nice fitness center included in the rent that offers classes and state of the art exercise equipment. Secure parking garage was a big plus for us as well.

The owners live close by and were quick to respond to a couple of equipment issues we had.

In summary, the condo is really nice and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect location to explore and experience downtown Denver. I recommend this rental highly.

Mixed feelings on unit.

  • 3 of 5

The building is great, the location of Glass House & view from the unit very nice. The appointments in the unit however leave a lot to be desired. The queen sized bed is extremely low & the bedding is hard to believe for a unit described as luxury. There is no furniture in the bedroom except the aforementioned bed & 2 plastic end-tables. There is a glass-top table in the living room that is an accident waiting to happen given the room's small dimensions & narrow traffic access around it. Overall lighting in the unit is poor particularly in the bedroom & shower.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Paul, for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the building, location, and view, but disappointed to hear that some aspects of the experience weren't to your liking, as we tried hard to respond to your questions and requests during your stay. It's true that the unit is furnished in more of a modern, spare style, which we enjoy, but it sounds as though that style isn't to your liking. (And we like the bedding very much, but again the style may be a matter of preference.) Some of the lights do have built-in dimmer switches and must be pushed a few times to be brought up to full brightness, so I wonder if that contributed to the issue? We do feel confident that the coffee table is safe, since the top is heavy glass and was designed to be used specifically in that configuration. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Denver overall.

Great Stay in LoDo

  • 5 of 5

Attentive owners. Fabulous location. Good restaurants aplenty and nearby. Can walk to many of Denver's main attractions. Building is very well run. Great to have parking in building. Gym is in building and not crowded at all. Very dog friendly - park across the street and dog park two blocks away. Residents are friendly and courteous. Great views. Denver's most happening location. Unit has all essentials and is very comfortable. Highly recommend and would certainly rent again!!!

Fantastic city view of the evolving Denver skyline. From 8th-floor community deck there are grills, a fire pit, a pool, lounge chairs, picnic area, home theater, coffee, breakfast on weekends, and from the other side of the lounge there are great views of the mountains, Riverfront Park, and the trendy Denver Highlands neighborhood. Right in the heart of the new Denver transportation hub, with light rail and buses to all areas of Denver and the surrounding areas. In the center of everything, you can walk to Denver's best restaurants, bars, theaters, shopping, REI, the Platte River, Cherry Creek, the restaurants and coffee shops of the Highlands. Glass House is right on Riverfront park, a large park of trees, hills, paths, and the Platte River running through it.
