About the property

Welcome To The Clarkson Mansion. Built In 1896 In Capitol Hill

The Clarkson Mansion has just finished a full gut renovation where everything is brand new.

This is a professionally done, purpose built space for large groups to have an amazing time. It is the nicest large house that is for rent in downtown Denver.

A beautiful historic mansion, the home features 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms. Walking in the front door you enter the foyer with its grand staircase. This leads to an open living/ kitchen/ dinning room. The dinning room seats 10, there are three counter stools, and there is a large leather L couch in the living room. There is also a formal sitting room off the foyer. This level features a full bathroom and a mud room with laundry. On the second floor there are three bedrooms. The front bedroom has a queen bed with a large porch that faces the front of the house. The side bedroom has two twin beds with trundles under each. These two bedrooms share the hall bath. The back master bedroom has a king bed, a wood ceiling, a back staircase and a master bathroom. The attic level is 550 square feet consisting of a bedroom with king bed, Master bathroom, TV area with sleeper couch and a "tree house" area with two twin beds. The basement is 600 square feet consisting of a den with TV and sleeper sofa, a bedroom with two queen beds and a full bathroom.

To recap, there are 9 individual beds, 2 trundles and 2 sleeper sofas. There are also inflatable air mattresses available.

The house is heated and cooled by two large 4ton forced air units so it stays warm in the winter and cold in the summer. There is a large tankless water heater for as many showers as you need.

There are plenty of outdoor options as well. The house features many porches including the large front porch, a side porch off the living room, the upstairs front porch, and the big back porch with BBQ grill.

Everything is brand new and is strictly for rent so there are no personal items in the house. The home has been professionally decorated and furnished with only the finest pieces.

For entertainment, there is a 60" 4K TV in the main room over the fireplace with cable, Netflix and Amazon prime. There is a whole house stereo connected to your phone. Also, most every bedroom has a TV in it.

This is a No smoking house. You can smoke whatever you want outside on any of the porches and outdoor spaces. No smoking or smoking smells in the house.

No loud noises outside. Please respect the neighbors.

Spacious with everything you need for work and/or play

  • 5 of 5

We used The Clarkson Mansion as a home base for a recent stay in Denver. Communication was more than easy and this home has everything you need. I would stay here again.

Big enough for the whole family!

  • 4 of 5

Clarkson House was big enough for our whole extended family to stay together rather than spread apart in multiple hotel rooms. There were 14 of us that flew into Denver for a family wedding and staying together made the trip so fun. We even hosted a pancake breakfast at the house for the wedding party!

The owner has done a great job updating this old house while maintaining its charm. We loved the large kitchen and dining area and as with any party, this is where we gathered. The back patio and hot tub were a hit too! Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, well appointed and comfortable.

Lack of parking is the only negative. We used Uber to get around town since everything is relatively close.

The owner was easy to contact and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this rental.

Wonderful stay with coworkers

  • 4 of 5

I had a great experience at the Clarkson Mansion. My coworkers and I were in Denver for a week-long conference and so appreciated the cozy home, beautiful kitchen, abundant bathrooms, and ample common spaces. Working with John was a breeze and the check-in/check-out process couldn't have been simpler. The only downside was that the garage spots weren't large enough to fit our cars (SUVs) and finding on-street parking was a big hassle. We will definitely be staying here again if we are in need of a space.

Fabulous, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, beautifully decorated and very comfortable home. Our family of thirteen stayed here for the Christmas holiday, had lots of room and felt very at-home. John even had a Christmas tree waiting for us in the front room when we arrived. Everything was just lovely!
