Sloan's Lake Mid-mod Escape
Denver vacation home in West Colfax
With beautiful hardwoods, spacious, comfortable communal spaces, and a gourmet kitchen, guests can take advantage of entertaining at home or exploring the bars and restaurants of the tree-lined Highlands and Edgewater neighborhoods. Heading to the mountains for the day? Sloan's Lake is your ideal home base for alpine adventures, with easy access to i70. Very close to Denver favorites Cultura, El Chingon, and Tap & Burger. The Space: This light-filled, renovated mid-century modern is just a block and a half away from Sloan's Lake with its lush park and running trails. Our home is accessible by keypad. Inside of the space, guests will find clean, modern design, four good-sized bedrooms, a large living room, fully-stocked, gourmet kitchen, laundry room, and two beautiful custom bathrooms. We have a large yard and private patio. There's plenty of off-street parking! Interaction with Guests: My home is professionally managed by a property management company and will be available 24/7. The Neighborhood: A few years ago, a trip to Sloan’s Lake was all about the water: fishing the marina, paddling the scenic shoreline, and, of course, enjoying the famed Dragon Boat Festival. Today, the lake isn’t the neighborhood’s only attraction, thanks to a slew of cultural additions. Shops and restaurants have turned part of West 29th Avenue into a walkable strip, while developments like the Lakehouse condo community on the former site of St. Anthony’s Hospital are transforming the area near West Colfax. All you’ll need to enjoy the neighborhood are some comfy shoes and an empty stomach. A construction boom has also characterized the Sloan's Lake neighborhood in recent years, with a flurry of both single-family homes and apartment units being built. Houses range from historical Victorian home plans to cozy bungalows, contemporary duplexes, and modern condos giving Sloan’s Lake residents an eclectic neighborhood drive and homes for all tastes. Young professionals and young families tend to settle around Sloan’s Lake for its proximity to downtown Denver, the lovely lake and parks, and boutique shopping and dining experiences. Sloan’s Lake is the second largest park in Denver, calculated at 177 acres, and has its own Marina for those who enjoy boating sports. The neighborhood surrounding the lake is undergoing a large population boom, and quickly filling with many new and exciting restaurants and breweries. Edgewater sits to the west of Sloan’s Lake and offers a quaint selection of eateries, Joyride Brewery, Coda Coffee Shop, US Thai, pubs, and more. Just North is a local hotspot known as Highlands Square. Highlands Square is filled with trendy boutiques, coffee shops, cafes, artisan eateries, Mondo Vinos premier liquor and wine shop, Sweet Cows homemade ice cream, and much more. SloHi (where Sloan’s Lake meets the Highlands) presents even more opportunity for coffee consumers, handcrafted bagels, cycling enthusiasts, and a selection of English cask beer from Hogshead Brewery. Getting Around: For those who do not have their own car, I recommend utilizing Lyft or Uber. There is also a few community share programs for cars, such as Turo and Car2Go. House Rules: • No smoking • No parties or events • Check-in is anytime after 3PMAir-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer hair dryers and irons/ironing boards.
