Way nicer than the ordinary AirBnB: Cozy room in newly remodeled basement area with TV and bar area. PRIVATE BATHROOM! A quiet neighborhood at the base of the foothills and near open space of Green Mtn with hiking and biking trails, we are only 5 mins from Red Rocks, 20 mins from beautiful downtown Denver, and 10 mins from Golden. Also, a great affordable option near the I70 entrance to the mountains and less than an hour from Loveland ski area and less than 1.5 hr from many other ski areas.
My home is ideal for 1 or 2 adults that want a quiet place when traveling for work, on vacation, or need easy access to the mountains for any mountain activities, Downtown, Golden, Fed Center, St. Anthony's hospital or family and friends in Lakewood or Golden area.
I live at the base of the Rockies, conveniently located 10 minutes from Red Rocks, a little more than an hour from ski resorts, and 20 minutes from downtown.
My home features a secluded guest area in a newly remodeled basement. The private basement has 1 bedroom and can comfortably accommodate 1 or 2 adults. The bathroom is off the room and private.
A Coffee Pot, Microwave, coffee, tea, hot chocolate mix, cereal and bottled water are provided in the bar area to make your stay more comfortable. Refrigerator space available in refrigerator in laundry room.
The bedroom has a cozy queen pillow top bed, chest of drawers, and closet space. It also has a private bathroom with a shower, towels, hair dryer, and a few toiletries.
Please note that the recreation room is not a private space as the home owner will need access to the space once or twice a day to do laundry and workout. There is NO sleeping allowed in the recreation room. I do NOT allow pets. And, NO smoking of any kind.
The recreation room does have a large 55" TV with surround sound, as well as a bar area with a coffee pot and coffee provided, and a microwave for use. I will also make popcorn if desired and if I am available for when you arrive in the evening. There is also a refrigerator in the laundry room with water for guests and you can make use of any free space in the refrigerator.
As summer approaches, there is also a nice deck in the back yard with a grill.
The home is a ranch style house, and the guests will have access to the entire finished basement with their own private bedroom and bathroom.
Access to the house will be provided with a code to enter the garage. The door into the house is directly above the steps to the basement. Please be sure to close the garage door after entering the house (unless you are going in and out on arrival or departure).
Interaction with guests
I live upstairs. I work from home often, so I am easily available for questions and suggestions of what to do. I also have 2 dogs that will stay upstairs and they are both non-allergic non-shedding dogs. During the evenings I mostly stay upstairs. I am happy to leave you to your own devices, but I think part of this journey is the cool people who I may meet. I love meeting new people and talking if you want to. Or, perhaps we can share a movie night on the big screen downstairs while you are here. I'd love to give you advice on where to go and what to do while you're visiting our beautiful area. I can advise on great eats, hiking, downhill or cross country skiing, and LOVE Colorado!
Other things to note
Redrocks is REALLY close - a 5 min. drive. Also, without traffic, you can get to Keystone, A-Basin, and Winter Park in a little more than an hour. It's also a great spot to stop for the night if you get in late from the airport. We are about 10 minutes from I-70. I know a lot about the local trails and skiing areas. I am not loud and do not party.
Dogs: NO dogs or pets of any kind.
Quiet Time: We do have quiet time between the times of 10 pm and 7 am. You may come and go as you please. Just do so quietly.
Smoking: No indoor smoking of any kind is allowed inside (this includes vaporizers). We understand that marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado, but at this time, we do not want anything with thick vapors smoked on our property (inside or outside). This includes joints, cigarettes, pipes, etc. Sorry, but the smoke disturbs our neighbors.
Cleanliness: I take great pride in the cleanliness of my home. Please do your best to keep your items relatively neat. It's appreciated if you take your shoes off and leave them at the top of the steps to keep the carpet clean downstairs. Generally, it is appreciated if you clean up after yourself and treat my home as you would treat your own.
Check Out: Please place dirty towels/linens in the laundry room. It's not required, but it makes my job easier! There's no need to make the bed since I strip the sheets. Please take your trash and recycling up as well when you leave.
Drinking: I am fine with drinking on the premises. In fact, I may just join you in a glass of wine or two! However, please drink moderately. Any alcohol in the bar area or refrigerator is NOT for use by guests.
Shoes: We prefer that shoes are off in the basement (where it is carpeted). This keeps our space clean for future guests and prevents wear and tear on the carpet. However, if you're just arriving or packing up your car, we won't get too picky. Just as a general rule!
Laundry: Only for use by guests who stay at least a week. One load ok if you stay at least a week.
I am a very active, professional home owner. I work from home a good bit of the time. I LOVE my dogs and do pet therapy and dog agility. I enjoy working out, reading, cross country skiing, kayaking, mountain biking, road biking, and hiking among many other activities. I love music and enjoy at least an annual Red Rocks concert. I love living in Colorado! I am spiritual, friendly, and enjoy life and meeting new people!
