The Blue Bear
We named this great home after one of our favorite public art pieces, the blue bear at the convention center. The piece encapsulates what we love about this city and our neighborhood. It’s whimsical but still traditional, full of surprises, and you never get bored with it.
The house has been recently updated and renovated to provide a comfortable and enjoyable home away from home. It hosts a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with an additional non-conforming bedroom in the basement for overflow. The home features hardwood floors, coved ceilings, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. There are 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the main floor and an additional bathroom, game room, and non-conforming bedroom in the basement. There are 2 living rooms on the main floor (one is accessed through the third bedroom) as well as a formal dining room and sun room. The third bedroom can be used as a large master with en-suite living room or as bedroom with access to the second main floor living room.

Located within in the same neighborhood I'm always close by if you need anything.
Mike purchased this House in 2005
Why Mike chose West Highland
We fell in love with this property almost 10 years ago due to its incredible location and the great amenities it has to offer. At the time the Highlands area was undergoing it's amazing transformation into the hot spot it is today.
What makes this House unique
The walkability factor here is unparalleled. Just a few short blocks to top rated Denver restaurants, shops, dining, and entertainment. Access to everything Denver and the surroundings has to offer is at your fingertips. There is something for everyone here; foodies, outdoor lovers, sports enthusiasts, art lovers, history lovers, you name it and it's within a few minutes away. Great place to hang out and enjoy this fantastic neighborhood and downtown Denver or to use as a base for skiing, outdoor adventure, Golden, Boulder, etc.

The best choice
The owner was so accommodating and great to work with. The house and neighborhood was just perfect
A lovely home for my family of 5 adults and 2 children stayed for 3 nights at this lovely home. It was clean,well stocked with all essentials , and easily walkable to restaurants and shops. It was a $7.00 Uber ride to downtown Denver so the location was perfect!. Thank you Mike
Mike was awesome! I even left my expensive LG headphones in the house and email Mike immediately. Not only did Mike find them, he was kind enough to mail them to me too. The house was the perfect size for me and my group of 6 adults. This place was also conveniently located by the Pepsi Center, Mike High, Lanier Square, 16th Street mail etc etc, everything was a 5 minute uber no lie!
The house was perfect for us! Great location! We would definitely recommend it to others!
The perfect place for us!
The blue bear house was the perfect fit for our family vacation! Although we didn't spend a whole lot of time at the house, the home was just as explained in the listing. It was close to everything and in a cute and quiet neighborhood. The homeowners were amazing from the beginning to the end!!!
a bit small but cozy; great locale for ease in commute
Pillows could use an upgrade, but pretty much EVERYTHING ELSE WAS SPOT ON!
Batteries in smoke detectors happened to die throughout the house during our stay and the noise was a bit much...something to be put on a preventative maintenance list is all
loved the hosues! THANKS, MIKE!
Ideal Central location- a short 4 block walk to shops and restaurants at Highlands Square (32nd & Lowell). A short bike ride to downtown Denver/LODO (2.5 miles) & LOHI (1.5 miles). Right in the heart of all that Denver has to offer: performing arts complex, museums, botanic gardens, sports complexes, outdoor parks, fine dining, amusement parks, shopping and more!
45 Minutes to the mountains and 1.5 hours to ski resorts.
