The Whittier Wonder was amazing. The house was clean and cozy. Lynette was very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. If I'm back in Denver I'd love to stay here again.

Cozy home with lots of character! Convenient to everywhere in Denver! A restaurant guide for the Gluten Free Traveler: Just Be Kitchen and City o city are great spots!

Had a fabulous girls getaway at the Wittier Wonder. We enjoyed relaxing on the patio in the evenings after adventuring all day. The beds were comfy and towels were plentiful. The house is cozy and the neighborhood quiet. This was my first time to Denver, there were lots of things to do within a 15 minute drive from the house.

This is a beautifully appointed home, perfect for a rendezvous of 3 sisters. Each bedroom was equally desirable. One and a half baths were sufficient. Street parking was always available for our car. The neighborhood was incredibly quiet and apparently safe, very centrally located. Lynette was quickly available by text to answer our questions but if we had consulted the black binder at the house we wouldn't have had any questions! The a/c is very powerful but it was difficult to regulate the bedroom temps at night. The stairs to the second floor are steep and narrow and there are level changes between rooms that could be problematic for some. These were pointed out in detail before our arrival, so we felt adequately warned yet were still sometimes caught by surprise. The Whittier Wonder lives up to its name. Be sure to check out the coffee table book that chronicles the heart and soul that went into the renovation. If we come to Denver again, we will definitely try to stay here. Unrelated to the home: if you are unfamiliar with driving in Denver, be mindful at light rail crossings. The warning lights are yellow (not red, like I am used to) and there is no crossing guard or bell when a train is coming. The engineer does have a horn which was needed in our case.

Great 3 night stay for 3 people for a Girls weekend. The house is beautifully decorated and has thoughtful amenities. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. We would definitely considering returning!

What a great stay! Whittier Wonder is a beautifully renovated home and Lynette was a warm and communicative host. Having a keyless entry was a nice bonus but the cleanliness and decor of the home are what really blew us away, including the beautiful outdoor space in the backyard. The location was perfect for our needs and the historic neighborhood felt safe, after seeing people walking around regularly. We'll definitely stay again if we're in the Denver area!

Lynettes place has a beautiful and tastefully designed interior. However we would not choose to return here because of the neighborhood that doesnt feel safe, its remote location to any restaurants or other establishments, and because of the creepy use of a camera that is used to monitor guests coming and going. We mistakenly did not use a bolt to lock the front door when we left the first day, possibly because the lock is a bit complicated to use, and taxi-bound to a downtown business meeting, we received a note telling us to immeditately return to the unit to lock the front door. Too bad, the unit is really super nice, but the experience was a bit uncomfortable for the above reasons.

Response from Lynette:
While everyone's perception and experience is different, I don't think a mile from downtown is a long way away. There are many restaurants and tons of awesome local craft brew pubs less than a mile from my home. I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy those as many other guests have done that have stayed in my home. I'm also sorry you weren't able to follow the simple instructions I sent you before hand to unlock and lock the front door. When you left the door unlocked, I asked that you return to lock it mostly because all of your belongings were in there and I wanted to keep them safe for you. I sent my cleaner over to lock it for you to protect your personal property. I'm sorry if that made you mad. I know I would definitely have appreciated if someone had done that favor for me. All the best to you in the future.
