The Hummingbird is perfect for the individual traveler or couple, accommodating up to 3 with a full sleeper sofa. Beautiful fully furnished, one bedroom apartment with kitchenette.

About Beth Chandler

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.

Beth Chandler purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Beth Chandler chose Scenic Heights

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!

What makes this apartment unique

The Arvada Dragonfly is a one of a kind property. Each apartment is complete and very private. You can easily walk to Olde Town Arvada and enjoy the small town feel.

Classy, comfortable, perfectly executed home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have been all around the world and this was truly one of the best places we have ever stayed. Whoever remodeled this home into little apartments is an expert in their field! It is really is quite beautifully done. On top of that everything is the picture of comfort. The bed linens were a dream, cushy carpet,wonderful pillows, gorgous kitchen and bathroom finishes and and a really comfortable sofa! I am new to Colorado and my honey and I decided to take some time to try out different areas of the city. We stayed here for 4 nights. He commuted to work and I stayed at the dragonfly working from home. I could have had my pick of places in and around arvada/greater Denver to work during the day, but I really had no reason to leave! We took full advatage of the complimentary toiletries and kitchen items and snacks provided. The host was spectacular in every possible way. She reach out to us as soon as we booked to let us know she was at our service and willing to help/accomodate us. She even went out of her way to make sure we could check in early, and came out to welcome us when we arrived. Do yourself a favor and stay at the dragonfly!!

A truly great apartment

  • 5 of 5

I thought Beth's place was better than it looked in the photos. Her description is accurate, and the decor is very well done and pleasing - a good re-make of a lovely old Victorian house. It's just off a not too busy street with a creek running on one side with access to a walking trail along the creek only about one and a half blocks away. The privacy, quietness and natural setting on the one side added to the relaxation I felt here.

Access to major highways to Golden, Boulder, all of Denver and the airport is close by and easy to navigate. Great place to stay. And the pull out in the living room is good quality!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Although my stay was far too short, this cozy one bedroom was situated on the top floor affording a quiet space to relax, recharge and read. The interior was bright and cheerful. Windows and ceiling fans kept the inside temperature very comfortable. Beth is very friendly also. There were chocolates in the kitchen to welcome guests, visitor brochures, and a selection of magazines about the area. You will not be disappointed with a stay here.

The Dragonfly

  • 5 of 5

It was a most delightful experience. The apartment was like a doll house, very well stocked with anything a guest might need. Beth spared NO expense w the furnishings, the mattress was the most comfortable I've ever slept on, we returned home and promptly purchased one. The apartment was quiet, clean, a library was stocked, as well as any cleaning supplies one might need to tidy up. Best of all, Beth was always nearby if we had any questions. And secondly, we could walk to Olde Town and enjoy all it had to offer which was a LOT. It is a place we want to return to once more. I highly recommend this property. Wish all places we rent were like this one. It will spoil you!
