Stay in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Denver in a house built in 1891. Character aside, the house has been modernized & can accommodate three people (though, unfortunately, no pets). It's also just a few blocks from many restaurants / bars / coffee shops, a 20 minute walk to downtown, and with quick access to I-25 or I-70.
The house was built in 1891, so it has character, but it's been modernized with hardwood floors, newer appliances, gas stove, granite countertops, and tile floor in bathroom, which has a tub / shower.
The main bedroom can sleep two in a queen bed and the guest room features a twin bed.
Has a small dinner table plus breakfast bar, and living room with a two couches and a flat screen TV with DirecTV. Basic internet /wifi included.
It has a fenced-in front and backyard, patio and porch set, small gas grill. If you have a car or bike you could park in my garage.

I will not be around but can be easily reached by text / phone / email (unless I'm out of the country, at which point I'll get back as soon as possible).
* Washer and dryer are in basement, which is small and has a shorter than normal door opening and ceiling. Please use caution when walking down to use washer / dryer. Also use caution when closing the washer door.
* Guest staying in the winter - should it snow - are required to shovel the 20 foot sidewalk if needed. I also have salt in the garage to sprinkle along the side /back of the house if it gets icy.
* Please keep the kitchen door closed in winter as the back mudroom gets cold (don't lock it as there is no key). I'll also try to put up insulation plastic around the windows to minimize drafts. The thermostat can be easily programmed for different times of the day - I ask to please keep the temp low when not home.
*As I'm not around, it's not stocked with many amenities. That said, there's a bunch of spices, etc for cooking which you are welcome to use. There's also a small propane grill in the garage.
*Absolutely no smoking inside the house (plenty of space in back yard).
*Guests staying during summer are required to maintain the small front/back yards. There is an electric lawnmower and long extension cord in the garage (outlets in porch / garage), and weed-killer spray to use on the rocks on devil strip / side of the garage. Takes 5-10 minutes to complete entire yard.
*Guests staying during winter, should it snow, I ask if you could please shovel / sweep heavy snow from the front sidewalk (about 25 feet wide). There is salt in the mud room if needed for the back patio, side walkway or front patio.
*Also please set trash / recycle bin out on Thursday mornings.
Shortly after college I packed a backpack and departed for Europe - on my own, without an itinerary. I've enjoyed traveling ever since - for the people you meet, the sites and the adventures, and because it keeps every sense sharp.
I've now been to over 40 countries: from Europe to Asia to Australia, Central and South America, to Africa and parts of the Middle East. And I've been all over the U.S.
I'm also a sports fan, having attended hundreds of events across the USA and the world, including the last six World Cups.
I grew up in Akron, Ohio but have lived and worked in New York City; Jacksonville, Florida; Dallas, Texas; and Denver, Colorado, where I've been able to take advantage of the beauty of the Rocky Mountains - hiking, snowboarding, and otherwise exploring the west as much as possible.
When my house is available it's because I've fortunately found contract work out of state - usually with some sports entity.
