Incredible! Beautiful! Spotless! Homey!

  • 5 of 5

If only every rental, resort or hotel had the look of: 'this place has got to be too good to be true', but over-fulfilled your expectations when you arrived... like the Whittier Wonder did!

We had a wonderful time here. The beds were great, the linens were crisp and things were cozy and welcoming, from the kitchen to the bedrooms.

Lynette is a very cordial hostess and her passion for this "Home" away from home is as effervescent as an ice cold 7-Up!

You will not be disappointed. Great location. Beautifully, thoughtfully and artistically decorated, this home will show you the loving passion that was put into its Victorian heart and soul- this home has a vibe of happiness and spirit!

I will be back! ❤️

Quaint, quiet, comfortable, perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Denver for our anniversary and we wanted someplace quiet, comfortable and unique. The Whittier Wonder filled all our expectations and more. The house is a perfect size. A wonderful blend of art and comfort. There are beautiful art pieces throughout the entire home. We were want for nothing for the 6 days we were there. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and perfectly located. Close enough to everything yet far enough away that you don't get the ambient noise. The house was quite cozy. We loved our stay here and if/when we travel back to Denver we would definitely stay here again! Lynette was very easy to get a hold of prior to arrival and was easily accessible if we would've needed anything during our stay which we did not. It's a beautiful home and a gorgeous place! Thanks!

Thank you, once again, Lynette for another wonderful stay in my favorite home away from home! The Whittier Wonder NEVER disappoints and neither do you!!! Madison and I had a great time together, much needed. We took day trips, walks in the neighborhood, ate out A LOT (P.S. we are regulars at the Dunbar!)

Stayed in one night and I cooked her a much needed home cooked meal. Watched movies and chilled. It was so relaxing! Haven't slept that well in a long time.

Thanks again for everything, we'll be back soon!

Modern with a touch of old

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated with uniqueness in every room. Absolutely recommend for someone that has or ever witnessed a home renovation.

Located perfectly close to downtown, union station, etc. yet far enough to have the residential vibe. park across the street and perfect for early morning walks.
