From hiking up mountains and backcountry skiing to drinking local craft beer and coffee, Denver will entertain even the most well-traveled visitors.

Colorado’s capital of Denver is a bit of a people-pleaser: it’s got both city and outdoorsy types covered. Within half an hour from Downtown, where you can shop, eat and enjoy local art, you’ll be on top of a mountain or in an amphitheater carved out of red rock. It’s also got a thriving gastronomical scene – with breweries on practically every corner. Find out what the fuss is about from one of the city’s best Airbnbs.

Historic Carriage House in Denver’s Oldest Neighborhood

This one-bedroom cottage began life in the late 1800s as a horse stable, before serving as a garage and being refurbished into this historic Airbnb. Nods to its former lives are prevalent throughout the Whittier-based property, from license-plate art that alludes to its vehicular background to the distressed vintage furnishings. Being an Airbnb Plus property, amenities range from the expected, like a fully equipped kitchen, to the luxury like an outdoor hot tub – meaning the property has everything you need while being that little bit extra special.

Sleeping four guests, this urban-styled loft is a great spot for two couples. With exposed brick walls, quirky artwork, plush sofas and metal furnishings throughout, the house manages to feel at once stylish yet homey. The area is thriving and popular with locals, thanks in part to its cornucopia of breweries, such as Great Divide Brewing Co, Jagged Mountain and Epic Brewing Co, alongside bars and eateries like Liberati, Safta, Owlbear BBQ and Gold Point.

Chill at a Totally Private Carriage House

Being light, bright and boho chic, this one-bedroom carriage house wouldn’t look out of place in the coastal town of Byron Bay. But as soon as you eye the blackboard in the lounge, with an illustrated map of the surrounding area, you’ll remember you’re in Denver’s trendiest neighborhood: it features recommendations for coffee shops and yoga studios. Its spacious kitchen with an eggshell blue Smeg fridge makes dining in easy, and if you stay during the summer months you can dine or BBQ outside in the sun-trap fairy light-strewn courtyard.

Much like the Historic Carriage House, this three-bedroom property has a hodgepodge of bric-a-brac and repurposed vintage items. Here, you’ll find a selection of vintage cameras and a bicycle lining the walls, along with an old-school suitcase that’s used as a medicine cabinet in the bathroom. Outdoors, the spacious garden makes a peaceful spot to enjoy an evening drink in the warmer months, while the enormous kitchen comes with a coffee machine so you can start your day right.

    If you appreciate a design-led property, then this loft space – which sits above the host’s store – will fill you with joy. The furnishings are thoughtfully curated: there’s a distinct Millennial theme here with shades of pink throughout, palm-tree cushions dotted around and stacks of magazines for decoration and inspiration. Thanks to its two bedrooms, additional sofa bed, sizeable kitchen and open-plan living and dining spaces, the house won’t feel cramped even at its full capacity of six.

    The owners behind this property have let their creativity run wild: it’s part trolley car and part cottage – but fully livable, spacious and bright. It might be in the city, but this property sits on an urban farm and is no stranger to resident animals and wildlife all around. Out back, the deck sits just above a small stream; savor a moment here with a glass of wine and a good book.

Pops of bright color bring this sizeable property to life, and it boasts a spacious outdoor area that’s designed for socializing: curl up by the outdoor fire or make the most of the hot tub on starry nights. It’s also in one of Denver’s coolest neighborhoods, LoHi in the center of town, with many great restaurants on your doorstep.

    Close to LoHi in Jefferson Park, this two-bedroom property is as good as it gets location-wise in Denver – with Downtown just under an hour’s walk. Back at the house, its grand Art Deco exterior makes for a strong photo backdrop, while it’s suitably homey inside, and decked out with a hot tub in the back. Plus, should you fancy a game, there’s a pinball machine in one of the bedrooms for some old-school entertainment.
