About the property

2 Bedrooms 2 Baths Sleeps 6 Downtown Glenwood Springs

Stay in downtown Glenwood Springs just steps from Glenwood's best restaurants, nearly every activity is within easy walking distance. This 1500 sq ft, 2 bedroom unit built in the late 1800's is located upstairs in what was once the Palace Hotel. It has been completely renovated with some of the old things still in tact. Look at the doors; they are the original ones from the 1890's with the room numbers still on them. Doc Holiday is rumored to have stayed here. If you are coming from the Front Range consider taking Amtrak as the train station is only 2 blocks from the Watersweeper Loft. No hassles with Glenwood Canyon.

Going up the stairs you will find yourself on a great, large deck with a stone top table ,firepit and BBQ grill. Go thru the door into the enclosed sun porch and sitting area. Enter the main door and you are in the old hotel hallway. On the left is western bedroom with a queen bed. On the right is the master bedroom with a king bed occupying what was once two hotel rooms. Next is the bath and laundry. There is a Jacuzzi tub and vanity in one room and a shower and vanity in another room. In the front you will find a complete kitchen with everything you could need and the dining room-living room area to complete the wonderful Loft with a great blend of old and new.

About Scott & Nicole Nelson

We are Scott & Nicole Nelson and purchased the Watersweeper building in 2015. Nicole has been the owner of the downstairs business, Elizabeth Dean Boutique for over 5 years. We were both born and raised in Glenwood Springs and love living here, so we have an extensive knowledge of things to do and the history of the area. We are both very active and enjoy the multitude of outdoor activities that are available in and around Glenwood Springs.

A gem in Glenwood Springs, CO

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 usually rents a home, but this time decided to try something different. This property is located on the main street of Glenwood Springs and we loved being able to walk to restaurants, hot spring pool, etc...The property is beautiful, well maintained, and has a lot of character and history. Would highly recommend!

Amazing Loft

  • 5 of 5

The Loft was beautiful and well maintained. Plenty of kitchen supplies and close to reaturants, bars, and the hot springs. Used the grill and firepit too. Would stay here again.

Perfect place to stay for a visit to Glenwood Springs

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second stay at the Watersweeper Loft. It was a perfect place for our needs, 2 kids (4 year old and 22 month old) and 4 adults. It is steps from the train station, a short walk to the pool and amidst shops and restaurants. We even walked to the tramway to visit Adventure Park. It's a bit funky, having been created from an old hotel above a shop, but the rooms are fine.There is a large bright living room/dining room/kitchen area and large bedrooms. The kitchen is completely ready for cooking which we did. The 2 bathrooms are modern. One minor negative is that although there are 2 sinks and tub/showers, there is only 1 toilet. Don't be put off by the entrance from the back, it leads to a nice porch with a fire pit and barbecue. We had everything we needed and didn't even need a car. We had a great time!

Nice locations be parking.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apt with awesome location. Parking is a nice plus. Noise of Main Street was not an issue. Nice back porch. Everything is Glenwood is walkable from here. Wifi is spotty and promised shampoo/soap wasn't there but minor issue. If you want to stay close to all Glenwood, this is a good option
