We’re located in central Denver, one block from the Denver Botanic Gardens. It’s a neighborhood full of trees and old houses from the 1800’s, like our house. But it also has quick and easy access to downtown Denver. It’s an old house, built in 1898, so it still has some cracks and bumps (though it has been remodeled). But it’s full of color, comfort, and light, and still has the carved wood and leaded windows.

Wait, and there's Dr. Weil's True Food restaurant. (I give up. Too many to list.)
We can direct you to restaurants we love. We like organic, healthy foods, but we’re also foodies and wine geeks (Brad is a sommelier). We always have a good wine selection if you like wine, as well as some of those great Colorado microbrews here at the house.
I often bake bread, and sometimes make homemade biscuits in the morning. Groats (whole oats) frequently show up at breakfast because they're just too too good and we're hooked on them. Let us know if you would like breakfast when you make your reservation.
We do recycle and compost, but we don’t pester guests about doing the same. We use only safe, eco-friendly products for house cleaning and for washing your sheets and towels.
In the winter, if you like to ski, snowboard or snowshoe, we'll help you find slopes and trails. I'll make cookies if we get snowed in, and we'll lend you some snowshoes to tramp to the local restaurants! (Shoot, we rarely get snows that deep in town anymore.)
This is a great house for gatherings and entertaining - email me for details.
- free on-street parking
- room for one car in our two-car garage for $10/night
Check with us before parking on the street in the summer, because on some concert dates at the Denver Botanic Gardens, the year-round free parking becomes high-ticketed parking! You’ll need one of our guest passes on your dashboard.

My second stay with Pam—one of the main reasons I wanted to visit Denver again was Pam's wonderful hospitality! The bedroom is so cozy and we really enjoyed the woodburning fireplace in the living room. Short walk to glorious Cheesman Park, and perfectly located between Colfax and Cherry Creek.
I stayed for a week at Pamela's house and had a wonderful, comfortable stay. She is a fabulous host and did everything to make my stay as welcoming as possible. The location is great; near several museums and the botanical gardens, and close to great restaurants and shopping. The Victorian house provided privacy when I desired it, but I was very comfortable in the living room and kitchen areas, and enjoyed getting to know Pamela and the other guests. I would definitely recommend Pamela's house for Denver visitors. She has such a warm and joyous heart.
I had the unfortunate trouble that I couldn't make it into Denver for the night of my stay with Pamela ,due the weather conditions that I had to deal with because of where I was coming from . I did leave a few messages and I know that Pamela is helping me resolve the out come
My husband summed it up best: we came as guests and left as friends. Pamela's home is warm and welcoming, and we quickly became "family" for the week we were there. The accommodations were lovely and private; we were also welcomed into the public spaces and felt comfortable spending time reading and relaxing with other members of the household. During a cold spell, Pamela made sure we were warm with an extra space heater. She also provided coffee, tea, and a light breakfast every day. The house is very convenient, easy to get everywhere in Denver either by car or public transportation. We definitely want to make it our go-to place in Denver!
My stay over Christmas was very enjoyable. It can't be easy to juggle family and friends over the holidays and host a guest at the same time, but Pamela did it flawlessly. She was always gracious and accommodated all my requests.
We had a fabulous stay with Pamela! She was very kind and helpful, offering lots of helpful suggestions for our long weekend in Denver. She set out a wonderful breakfast each morning for us and we enjoyed visiting with her over morning coffee. The house was just like the pictures showed, adorable and well kept! The house is walking distance to fun bars and restaurants. While we didn't make it there this trip, the house is directly across from the Botanical Gardens, which looked lovely. We are so glad that we stayed with Pamela! We could not have asked for a better Airbnb experience!
What a splendid time ! Pam is a most wonderful hostess....and serves up a mean breakfast as well -- not to speak of the wine connections.....nothing like sitting by the blazing fire place and sipping vino rosso......I'll definitely be back ~ Thanks again so much Pam !
Everything was terrific when enjoying the cozy environs that Pamela and her family provided. My room, was on the first floor in the back so I did not have to lug my suitcase up the beautiful wooden, vintage staircase. Pamela put an extra welcome touch to my arrival with a pitcher of ice water, fruit and chocolates in my room. There were also a number of magazines in the living area, and a fire place in the communal space and Pamela was happy to build a fire. She also gave me a free shuttle pass to get back to the airport and looked after me in a friendly and low key manner to provide suggestions of near by restaurants and other services. Upstairs there was a large screen tv in another communal space. My wife was pleased to learn that somehow Pamela got me to eat a number of healthy snacks and other foods that Pamela made a gently coaxed me into trying....something not easily achieved by my health conscious daughters and wife. I am sure we will stay in touch.
Staying with Pamela was our first Airbnb experience. Besides being patience with our neophyte questions and foibles, Pamela was a very welcoming host. The accommodations were very homey and comfortable. Breakfast was super yummy and healthy. This was a great first experience and we expect to back at Pamela's and exploring other places as well!
Pamela is a natural hostess. She is warm, engaging, and just immediately feels like a friend. I saw less of Brad, but he was friendly nonetheless. But both were so kind and supportive to come out on a brisk Sunday morning to cheer for me in the Denver marathon with a big banner! The house is well situated, and I enjoyed running in the three parks nearby, visiting the Botanic Gardens, and gawking at the big historic homes in the neighborhood. The room turned out not to be as quiet as expected, but Pamela and Brad immediately made an effort to mitigate the noise coming from the kitchen, which helped a lot. Although all of the other occupants of the house were friendly, I was not prepared for so many people staying there (one weekend we were 9 adults and one toddler). The bedroom was cozy, and for the most part I enjoyed a private bathroom, although it was used by others on occasion. As someone who prefers a calm, quiet environment, this was not the ideal situation for me at points despite the kindheartedness of the owners.
Hannah stayed with us for a month, and we liked her very much. She is correct that we had one weekend during her stay when the sister, brother-in-law, and niece of our longterm guest (and friend) stayed with her, and my adult son visited me. This was a scheduling snafu that won't be repeated, and not the typical state of our home. That said, we will sometimes have friends over for an evening when we have airbnb guests who stay for a month or more. Hannah was very nice and warm to everyone.
