In many ways, Denver is unique among the major cities in the United States. It is the highest city in the United States with an official elevation of exactly one mile (1.6 kilometers), hence its endearing nickname, Mile High City. While it embraces its rural past as a cowboy and mining town, it is also embracing the future with a vibrant arts scene and plenty of outdoor festivals. Also, where else can you escape from city life to snowy ski resorts so easily, with the Rocky Mountains a mere 12 miles (19 kilometers) away? Pack your suitcase and check out these top Airbnb vacation rentals in the city and around the municipality of Arvada, which is part of Denver’s metropolitan area.

1. h-century carriage house in Curtis Park (from USD 127)

Denver was founded by the banks of the South Platte River in 1858, and quickly became a popular town for gold miners and merchants. One of its first neighborhoods is Curtis Park, northeast of downtown, which is still home to many old architectures. This charming guesthouse, for instance, was converted from what was once a carriage house in the 1880s and pays homage to that era with old-style French door panels and rustic decor. You can take a leisurely stroll to downtown, or you can chill out in the guesthouse with snacks and a cable TV provided. The host teaches Crossfit classes in an adjacent garage, and you are most welcomed to join her classes.

2. Victorian cottage in Curtis Park

Denver residents are often proud of the history of their neighborhoods. This brightly-decorated Victorian cottage is situated a block away from Welton Street, which was once home to renowned jazz clubs, some of which are being restored to their former glories. Amid the house’s sunny decor, you can find a banjo, an old upright piano, and a fine vinyl collection, and the host warmly welcomes you to make or play music. There are other cozy home comforts such as a flat-screen TV, a Blu-ray player with Netflix and a backyard with a gas grill. If you wish to explore the city, you can conveniently take the light rail to downtown from the station just a block away.

3. Old-school guesthouse close to vibrant RiNo art district (from USD 116)

North of the Curtis Park neighborhood is the River North (RiNo for short) Art District, where historic warehouses and factories now house jazz bars, restaurants, brew pubs, art galleries and working studios. It is a great area to explore, especially with street art murals sprouting all over its alleys and buildings. This two-bedroom guesthouse is just blocks away from this district, and is also converted from a 19th-century carriage house, its modern industrial furniture offering a contrast to the old-school brick walls and hardwood floors. The hosts have added some nice touches like bathrobes, a welcome packet with snacks and also a list of recommendations of things to check out during your stay.

4. Cozy basement apartment in fantastic location (from USD 103)

It is easy to understand why Denver’s City Park was voted in 2015 as one of the top 10 neighborhoods in the US. To its north is the expansive City Park which houses the popular Denver Zoo and the Museum of Nature and Science. To its south is Colfax Avenue, one of the city’s main thoroughfares, filled with eateries, shops, and convenience stores. Yet, amid all these urban joys, the leafy neighborhood retains its serene peacefulness. Thus, this two-bedroom basement apartment undoubtedly scores for its fantastic location, but you should also be pleased with its bright, cozy decor and stylish, well-stocked kitchen.
