About the property

Unique, spacious two bedroom apartment, walking distance to Olde Town

Introducing The Garden of The Arvada Dragonfly, a recently renovated, two bedroom, 900 square foot, garden level apartment. It is fully furnished with a completely equipped kitchen, as well as washer and dryer availability. It offers the amenities of a hotel with the comfort of a home.

The Garden is an ideal option for business travelers who want the comforts of home and may have family members join them during their stay.

As well, it is ideal for folks who are in transition-looking for a new home or renovating their current home.

Not to forget the local guests, The Garden easily accommodates groups, as it comfortably sleeps 5. A birthday celebration, a reunion of friends, girls' night out. (You could also invite 3 more and have them stay upstairs in The Pearl!)

'Boutique lodging' at its finest The Arvada Dragonfly is just blocks away from Olde Town Arvada-a quaint little town with charm and history. During your stay, we can recommend local restaurants and shops-many within walking distance. We can help you with securing local services, including nearby salon services, yoga classes, on-site massages . . .

Should you choose to venture away from our beautiful little town, I-70 is easily accessible which translates into multiple options during your visit. We are 35 minutes from DIA by shuttle. (Please inquire about the shuttle which comes directly from the airport to Arvada). Denver is easily accessible (20 minutes). Golden is 10 minutes away. Red rocks Ampitheater is 20 minutes away. Boulder is 35 minutes away. Central City and Black Hawk are 45 minutes away. The mountains are nearby with the slopes being as little as an hour away.

Your home away from home is part of a beautiful old Victorian home and the owner is on site. Yet, your entrance is private and there is a beautiful patio and back yard.

Space and comfort are the priority for the guests of The Garden.

No cleaning fees!

Why Beth Chandler chose Arvada

Through its many years .. the house was built in 1901, the house has experienced many changes. Originally built at a different location in Olde Town, it was the home of a dentist and also housed his practice. Other owners have used it in similar fashion, frequently having their businesses on site and frequently offering lodging to guests. It was a girls home at one point, as well. After most recently primarily providing apartments for long-term tenants, the new change is a very exciting one. There are very few short-term accommodations in the area and certainly none with such charm and convenience. I believe it fills a need to the community I have come to love.

What makes this apartment unique

I have always been attracted to Victorian homes and somehow knew I would own one one day . .. the thing I had hoped for and never expected in Colorado was to own one by water .. . you can hear the running water of Ralston Creek. Having grown up in the Southeast, I have missed the water .. I love that sound!

they've thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled with my parents to Arvada to visit my adult son, daughter-in-law, and two young grandchildren (11 months and 2 1/2 yrs old). The apartment was beautiful and met our needs perfectly. It was beyond clean- like every surface wiped down and dust-free. They've thought of everything you might need, including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, room spray, lotion, and make-up removers. A couple of nights my family all congregated there and made use of the yard and swing. We cooked a couple meals there and had all the utensils and pans you'd want. The rental is also walking distance to Old Arvada which is really cute- shops, coffee, beer, and places to eat. The hosts were responsive and friendly. I would give this more than 5 stars if that were possible.

Comfy home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home and attentive innkeeper. The home is in a quiet neighborhood about 10 min outside of Denver. Home is walking distance to super cute old town area with great restaurants and coffee shop. The beds / sheets were super comfy!!! It was also so nice to have access to washer/dryer. Highly recommend this home away from home!

We loved our stay here! The unit was clean, fully stocked with everything we needed, and was in a great location. Best of all, the hosts were fantastic. We highly recommend the Dragonfly and would definitely stay here again.

5 - Star A+ Tip Top Spit Spot Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3/4 (our 2nd daughter, who lives in Denver, stayed with us for the weekend) thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay here at the Garden Room in Arvada! Beth was the best hostess, & very personable! She takes pride in her property & it shows! We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our accommodations, as well as the cool Olde Town in Arvada, which was easy walking distance from the guest house. Great linens, spic & span clean, beautiful decor, nice & comfortable furnishings, wifi, cable, Netflix, outside seating to enjoy the Colorado evenings & if Beth didn't stock it, (although she seemed to have thought of everything!), she would get it for you! She even had a handy dispenser right in the shower with body wash, shampoo & conditioner! I am so glad we found Beth's place & Arvada, because the other Colorado towns we visited were disappointing in comparison. The town had a great music shop, Olde Town Pickin' Parlor, which stocked all kinds of stringed instruments to play & friendly staff, as well as some great burgers at Tap & Dough, & a neat army & navy surplus store with friendly staff. We did day trips to Garden of the Gods (highly recommend! - free), Estes Park (very pretty & great hiking but super crowded!- $20/car), great thrift shopping, city of Denver ( a little disappointing), Coors Stadium to see a Rockies ballgame ( Fun - you can't go wrong with a ballgame!) & The Air Force Academy (really enjoyed this! - free). You won't be disappointed in your stay here in the Garden Room at the Arvada Dragonfly! I highly recommend it to anyone, but afraid by doing so, it won't be available to us in the future! Thanks Beth for everything & your Colorado hospitality, as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you in Arvada! The Marches from Elverson PA!

Better than we expected

  • 5 of 5

I had previous to our stay read the reviews and thought they were a little too positive. But everything that was said was true ! The linens and towels were heavenly, the location near Olde Arvada was perfect for walking for a drink or breakfast, the swing under the huge trees out by the creek was a perfect place to read and relax, the whole place was super clean and organized. Everything we could have possibly needed was in the 2 bedroom Dragonfly unit. Five of us shared a bathroom which I thought was going to be difficult, but worked out fine. Enjoyed the cable TV and wifi. The owner was so responsive to texts, friendly in person, and seems to be a natural at hosting guests concerned about their pleasure and comfort. Thanks for the wonderful experience. JC from SAnta Fe
