Whittier Wonder Lives Up to Its Name

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with my stay at the Whittier Wonder. Conveniently located, this gem of a house is packed filled with all of the comforts of home. Often times, the sheets and towels at the usual vacation home leave a lot to be desired, not here. The sheets and towels are quality and the two robes hanging in the bedroom add that special touch.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Denver. You too will not be disappointed.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the Whittier House! We spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed the house. The attention to detail and remodeling of this house was beautiful. We really enjoyed being able to sit outside on the patio and all of the amenities made our stay so great! We would definitely come back again!

Believe the hype! This house is great.

  • 5 of 5

Whittier Wonder was a fantastic home base for our family of 4. It is in a perfect location for visiting Denver and surrounding areas (e.g., great hiking within an hour) and the house itself is beautiful and comfortable. I’ve rented many VRBOs over the years and this was definitely one of the nicest. Renovations are perfect and the house has updated furnishings and bedding, lots of fluffy towels, A/C, and comfy couches (tv room now has love seat - not in pics). The owner provided things like soap, paper towels, and even coffee (I’ve been to places where I had to buy my own dish towels!). It was very clean too.

Loved that it was close to Colfax & all the restaurants.

Only critique would be that the side walk should be repaired.
