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.

Interior

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. There is a patio with a table, chairs, and a grill at the back of the house. Large fenced backyard with tree house!

On site laundry, fully equipped kitchen, gas grill, and family friendly amenities such as a pack and play, high chair, changing table, and board games.

About Mike

Located within in the same neighborhood I'm always close by if you need anything.

Mike purchased this house in 2005

Why Mike chose Denver

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.

Great Location and very responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

This is in a great location and we really liked the beds and the media room. We experienced a problem with the hot water heater and it was replaced immediately. Great response on the part of the owner.

Nice house

  • 5 of 5

Layout is a little strange with an extra living room in the back of the house accessed through one of the bedrooms which we never actually used because the front living room was cooler. I liked that the BBQ was there to use, but the kitchen & fridge was completely bare... not even condiments left. Over all, my guests & I enjoyed the house.

Perfect location and space for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled from St. Pete, FL to Denver to surprise my FIL for his 70th birthday. This house is only a few blocks away from my in-laws' house and gave us a perfect spot to stay and spend time with family.

Comfortable home in central Denver location

  • 5 of 5

This home served my family and I perfectly! We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to walk to a variety of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. Grocery store close by as well. Easy access to all highways, yet still a very quiet neighborhood. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, and a fully stocked kitchen made the stay worry -free. Private outside area was a bonus. I have absolutely no complaints about this stay! Thank you!
