This is a dedicated guestroom with a queen-size bed and a dedicated bathroom with shower (no tub). There is plenty of closet space and a reclining chair with an overhead lamp for reading!
I have been enjoying welcoming many wonderful guests (from 3 different countries so far) into my 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo . I am just a few minutes drive to I-70/C470 and to the Federal Center, Denver West, the new St Anthony Hospital, Colorado, Colorado Christian University and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and all the tourist sites in Golden.
You will have a private bedroom with a brand new queen-size Westin Heavenly Bed and private bathroom in my executive condo. The condo has fabulous views and is furnished with a modern look with new IKEA living room furnishing and remodeled kitchen. You may make yourselves at home in all public parts of the condo -- use the kitchen, or relax outside on the patio. You may use my washer and dryer if need be.
This property is located in west Lakewood just a few minutes drive to Golden and Morrison and minutes from C470 or 6th & Simms. The RTD (bus service) bus stop is within a couple minutes walk of the front door, and will take you to the West Rail Line that opened April of 2013 (Fastracks of RTD) that serves the Denver Metro area. Miles of hiking trails are just a two minute walk to 2400 acres at Green Mountain Open Space. As an executive consultant, I share the unit with my guests when I am in town. The best times for me are weekdays for guests as I am often out of town on weekends.
Golden, just a short car ride away, has world class cycling and hosted the Seven-Day Quiznos Pro Challenge in August of 2012. You can also kayak in the Clear Creek White Water Park, shop at the Colorado Mills Mall, golf, fly fish, tour Coors Brewery and visit Buffalo Bill Gravesite and Museum. Downtown Golden is filled with galleries, specialty shops and has every type of ethic food offered at mom and pop restaurants, local coffee shops and the best ice cream by the scoop!
Experience a concert at the world-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Take a hike or ride your bike through one of the Jefferson County Open Space parks or enjoy a horseback ride at Bear Creek Lake Park.
From the fast track to the slow lane, experience the roar of drag racing at Bandimere Speedway, or take a leisurely stroll through the historic Town of Morrison and stop at one of the many restaurants and coffee shops.

DO NOT STAY WITH TRACY!!!
I lost $800 to Tracy
I had an accident shortly before my stay which required surgery. Tracy agreed to alter the dates of my visit. After she received the money she did not honor this agreement, nor did she refund my money. She left me with an $885 bill a no place to stay when I did eventually begin my internship in CO.
Tracy has ignored all attempts at contact and communication regarding this matter.
In the case of medical emergencies, please be aware that Airbnb requires you to provide proof. Dustin was not able to provide any documentation. Unfortunately, I was not able to accommodate the dates in his request for another stay. My consideration of a change of dates/another stay for Justin was generous on my part as my cancelation policy clearly states the time frame needed for a refund and Justin’s request – which was within 24 hours of his arrival – was way outside of my cancellation policy. It may be advisable to purchase travel insurance to provide coverage for unexpected travel cancellations.
Below is the response sent to me on 2.22.13 from Airbnb per this reservation/incident:
Tara G, Feb 22 12:49 (PST):
I hope this message finds you well. Your previous guest Dustin has reached out to us regarding a agreement you two had made. He stated that he was not able to make his reservation on 1/5/13, so you had agreed to let him stay free of cost another time. Please know, the choice is up to you Tracy.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.
Tracy was a swell host. Her clean home and comfortable bed was the reprieve I needed.
Tracy was a great host!
Provided very helpful hints, inviting to join her on various activities, and very active in enhancing her offer for an even more pleasent stay.
I am looking to stay in Tracys room again soon!
Excellent place! Comfortable, clean and quiet and in a great location. Tracy was very flexible about my arrival plan. Highly recommended!
I am really enjoying opening my home to those who wish to visit the Lakewood – Golden area. I think I live in the best place in the world! It's gratifying to me that I can provide an inexpensive yet comfortable place for visitors to stay while working or exploring all that the foothills of Colorado area has to offer. I am a Colorado native who enjoys hiking, cycling and sailing. I also love to bike, snowshoe, river raft, camp, etc etc etc. I am a highly educated, executive consultant. Happy to answer any questions you may have.
Have a great day!
