The Carriage House is in the Packard's Hill Historic District of Denver's West Highlands neighborhood and is only steps away from Highland's Square - an epicenter in the city for shopping, dining, drinks, and music. It is the perfect spot to settle into for a stay in our great city of Denver.

The space

The Carriage House is an original 1880s structure originally constructed as part of the Victorian home at the corner of Osceola and 32nd Street. The property was originally owned by Mr. FW Mills, an early Denver mayor, but is locally known as the Mary Ford house, after an early pioneering female doctor who had her practice in the house. The carriage house architect was William Quayle, one of the most important architects working during the city’s early real estate boom.

The original lot for the property containing the Carriage House was subdivided in the 1950s and the structure that fronts Osceola Street was built during this time and operated as a bookstore and antique shop for almost 50 years, while the upstairs of the Carriage House was rented as an apartment.

The Chesser family purchased the home in 2006 and renovated the Carriage House downstairs to its current state over the following years, taking care to preserve original elements including the large carriage doors and original windows. In fact when we purchased the house the original glass was still in place in the windows and completely blackened from smoke from a fire in the adjacent property (which were originally tuberculosis isolation wards, presumably associated with Dr. Ford’s practice) in the 1920s!

We love how original architectural elements both compliment and contrast the more modern, industrial elements of the renovation, including the exposed steel beams and duct work, and finished, polished concrete floor and hope you agree!

Guest access

Guests have their own private entrance and will have access to the Carriage House and private, quaint, and sunny side patio.

Interaction with guests

Our home is attached to the Carriage House, and we are typically home. In the event we are needed by the guest, we will make ourselves available. The guests will have their private space and time. We find most prefer that and get in touch over AirBnB, text, or just knocking on the door!

Other things to note


As of January 1st, 2017 the City and County of Denver requires a lodging tax of 10.75% on all short term rental stays (defined as less than 30 days) within Denver. This will be collected separately via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), separate AirBnB fund request, or by check or cash on check-in. Guest must pay this prior to check-in or make agreements with us to pay on check-in.

This listing is registered and licensed as a short term rental (STR) with the City and County of Denver. As of January 1st, 2017 the City and County of Denver requires a lodging tax of 10.75% on all short term rental stays (defined as less than 30 days) within Denver. The Occupancy Tax charged by AirBnB on booking includes other local taxes but does NOT include the lodging tax.

We do not roll this tax into our rate because AirBnB reports it as income and it makes our rate seem higher compared to other less scrupulous hosts who are not registered and out of compliance with Denver's regulations. We will send a separate request via AirBnB for the tax payment, but are happy to accept cash, check, or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) on check-in-whatever is easiest for you! Thanks for understanding!

Here are some things we would appreciate when you stay in The Carriage House.

Please NO smoking. This includes the outside patio as well. This is a NON SMOKING house. We will have zero tolerance for this.

Please do not dispose of feminine sanitary products or the like in the toilet. The Carriage House sewer is drained by a pump system and will clog resulting in an unpleasant backup and a $500.00 plumbers fee, which the renter will be responsible for.

Please treat the house as if it were your own. Leave entire Carriage House in a clean condition, like it was found. This is much appreciated.

In general, please maintain normal noise levels - as you would if you were in a hotel with guests on either side of your room. Small parties or family gatherings are generally permitted provided you advise and clear with the host. We are in a residential area and expect you will respect our neighbors and maintain typical noise levels after 9 PM.

The Carriage House was everything we’d hoped for and more! Everything was exactly as shown in the photos, it was extremely clean, and there were useful amenities such as laundry, a full kitchen, and a lovely porch. It’s really close to downtown and additional great places to eat and drink are within walking distance. We never had any issues with street parking! Jamie was a fabulous hostess—we had a late check-in and she made sure the lights were left on and that we could easily check-in independently. No complaints here! We will definitely look into staying at this one-of-a-kind airbnb again when in Denver.

We had a wonderful stay! Our hosts were friendly, responsive, and gave great recommendations! The place was perfect for a stay in Denver both within the carriage house and in the local neighborhood, it was the perfect distance to many shops and restaurants. We walked to a local coffee shop each morning. Though note for any place around the area, parking in the neighborhood is enforced. We had hoped to walk around more or use public transit more but some of the time restrictions on day parking required more use of our rental car. Wanted to mention for those planning their stay! Overall I'd highly recommend Jamie and Will's rental for anyone visiting the Denver area. We stayed elsewhere (in Five Points) two other nights as we we're unable to book this spot the full time, the other place was closer to downtown but more expensive and smaller, the space in the carriage house and it's outdoor patio are a big plus and getting nearly anywhere in Denver is a quick drive (in this CA residents opinion!). If you are considering it, book it!

Hosts living quarters are above space. Recommend ear plugs if not an early riser. Parking on street is not difficult but posted signs state 3 hour limit, if staying for long periods of time at the house, you must move your vehicle to avoid being ticketed.

Beautiful little studio. Actually more adorable in person than the photos. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee, shopping, etc. Great base location for day trip to the mountains. Grocery store nearby. Comfortable bed and a fully stocked kitchen. Claw bathtub was amazing for soaking my bones after hiking all day. Jamie and her husband were excellent with communication. Check in a breeze. Little noisy from above as I could hear the little ones running around, but we weren't home for long periods and noise was mostly short bursts. Wouldn't deter us from staying again. Overall wonderful spot!!
