50's Charmer on 3.5 acres -- Ideal suburban location!

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Quiet and peaceful, yet conveniently located near most major sights/attractions.

If you are looking for a place to slow down, unwind and relax, come stay at the "Bligh Ranch". This is a cozy, charming ranch-style home, built in the 50's that sits on 3.5 acres in Littleton, Colorado.

With comfortable, mid-century style and décor, you'll feel yourself transported to the slower paced 1950's; a place to truly recharge! You will have the entire property to relax and roam. There is plenty of off-street parking in a large driveway/parking area in front of the home. The house has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, a library/game room, living room, dining room and kitchen. As a bonus, there is a covered patio where you can enjoy morning coffee in the quiet, park-like setting.

The home was built in 1953, and was occupied by the original owners until recently. Because of this, almost all of the furnishings and décor is original and vintage, giving a relaxed, "staying-at-Grandma's" type of ambience.

The bedroom features a full size bed with tempur-pedic mattress. (Additional guests can use the full-size sofa bed with memory foam mattress which is located in the living room and/or the couch in the game room).

The game room has a variety of board games (Scrabble, Monopoly), playing cards, and an extensive choice of books to read. As mentioned earlier, there is a very comfortable couch for relaxing or sleeping.

The living room is cozy with a chair, bookshelf, sleeper couch and coffee tables.

The dining area is airy and bright with a beautiful view of the garden in the back of the house. The table can seat up to six people.

The bathroom includes toilet, sink, and shower/bath with rails for those that might need assistance.

Small, but full kitchen, complete with "percolator" coffee pot, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and small dinette. You are welcome to use dishes, glasses, pots, and utensils. Help yourself to the use of spices, vinegars, olive oil, flour, salt, pepper, coffee and tea, that are part of the kitchen. Feel free to cook, barbecue---please make yourself at home! If you like, we will provide you with muffins, Danish or doughnuts daily.

The "modern" conveniences; microwave, coffeemaker and toaster are in the utility room located off of the kitchen.

Depending on your mood and the weather, you can dine in the kitchen (2 people), the dining room (up to 6), or outdoors on the patio (chairs for 4). There is a charcoal grill and tools available for your use.

The rear of the house opens up to a mini-park-like setting; lots of varieties of trees, flowers and bushes. Also, lots of bunnies, squirrels and different birds (blue jays, hawks, mourning doves) call the ranch home.

Although the grounds are quiet, the location is perfect for exploring what Colorado has to offer! Shopping, dining, gambling, sports events, skiing, theatre, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and more are a short distance away.

As a guest you will have complete privacy, as we do not live on site. We are about five minutes away and of course can be reached by either phone or text. We love to interact with our guests and share tips on things to do and places to go, but certainly are mindful and respect those that enjoy their privacy.

In keeping with the 50's theme, please be advised that there is not a television in the home. We do however, have WiFi and will provide you with a password so that you can access your emails, etc.

Although we do have a modern-style refrigerator, stove and dishwasher in the kitchen, there is no garbage disposal. We will provide you with bags and a place to dispose of your food scraps.

Please observe quiet time from 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM. We have a no smoking policy that includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes and cannabis, both in the house and on the grounds outside.

We love this place and hope you will too. That said please respect the space and care for it as if it were your own.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Littleton to attend a wedding. Family came from the West Coast and Canada. We spent five great days visiting and touring. We asked our son to join us and needed a place to stay for 3 people. Lucky we found Bligh Ranch on Home Away. It was perfect. It was close to all the events and close to stores and restaurants. The home was just as it is advertised. Everything we needed was there. It was quiet. It was private. It was comfortable. Many of our relatives stayed in a hotel. When they saw where we were staying they were so jealous. I would recommend Bligh Ranch to anyone visiting Littleton. Too bad we did not meet Vickie when she came during the day to water the flowers and fill the bird feeder and bird bath. She kept in contact with us by text to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Thanks Vickie.

If staying on a place of days gone by is what you want this is the place. I enjoyed the slower pace.

Car: recommended

The Bligh Ranch is a perfect location for any number of activities! Although the ranch is situated on 3.5 acres and feels remote, all the best of Littleton and Denver await at the end of the driveway. Minutes away in charming downtown Littleton are restaurants (The Melting Pot, Romano's Italian Restaurant and The Platte River Grill), wine bars (Kate's and Legacy Winery), breweries (Breckenridge Brewery and Locavore Beer Works), and even an Irish Pub---Ned Kelly's. Main Street in Littleton is a fun place to shop, eat and drink. In addition, you can take a yoga class, attend a community theatre performance and stroll through our art gallery which features local artists. Check out Hudson Gardens, an arboretum with lovely walking paths and concerts in the summer. There are two shopping malls in either direction. Aspen Grove hosts The Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Sees Candies, The Tattered Cover Bookstore and the Alamo Draft House Cinema, along with a variety of specialty shops and restaurants. Head west and you will find Southwest Plaza, a traditional, large mall. Dillards, Macy's and Penney's are neighbors to H&M, The I Love Denver Store and a bowling/amusement arcade. Of course, lots of restaurants; The Cheesecake Factory, Chili's and Big Daddy's Burger Bar, to name a few. The nearest golf course and tennis courts are approximately 8 minutes from the ranch. There are two parks (Bear Creek Lake Park and Chatfield) nearby that offer boating, swimming, paddle boarding, fishing and horseback riding. Don't forget, Red Rocks, the world-famous amphitheatre is a mere twenty minutes away. Best concert experience ever! Putting all of this in writing, makes me stop and realize how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful, special place! And this isn't even touching what is happening in the rest of the Denver area! More on that later--- Any questions or recommendations? Doug and I are here for you!
