Welcome to Velma’s Guest House

Velma’s Guest House offers 3 charming 1920’s bungalows centrally located in Denver, the capital of Colorado.These Denver vacation rentals offer the charm of the past with the convenience of today. Each home is tastefully decorated in an eclectic style blending the ambience of the 1920’s with the modern. Our vacation rentals are maintained to the highest standards and feature many luxury upgrades which you won’t find in the typical vacation rental or “extended stay” hotel lodging. This thoughtful anticipation of your needs is what sets Velma’s Guest House apart from others. With centralized air conditioning and forced air heating, the inside temperature is always just right. Each home is very well provisioned, truly a “home away from home”, so you can focus on the reason you are in Denver.

All three homes are located in the charming, family friendly, urban neighborhood of Congress Park, one of Denver’s early neighborhoods.  The tree-lined streets and proximity to local restaurants, businesses and tourist attractions make this a great walking neighborhood. Enjoy the comfort and privacy of ‘home’ while enjoying the convenience of being ‘in the city’.

Nothing is better than the intimate atmosphere of “home”. Whether seeking a special place to reunite with family and friends; an alternative to the confines of a hotel room when traveling with children: a comfortable respite during the course of medical treatment at one of the nearby hospitals; a hotel alternative for visiting wedding guests; a vacation rental home convenient to the major tourist attractions of the city; easy access to the Denver Convention Center when attending a conference; a long weekend “get-away” in the city; a central location for interim lodging during the stress of a remodel; a corporate rental for a month or more; all appreciate the careful attention to details and thoughtful anticipation of your needs, that distinguishes Velma’s unique approach to the short term rental.

Enjoy family friendly accommodations and an urban experience in Denver’s best kept secret, Denver’s  Congress Park Neighborhood.  Just 3 miles east of downtown and 23 miles from DIA, this conveniently located, Central Denver vacation rental provides easy access to freeways and public transportation into downtown.   From Velma’s the distance to major tourist attractions is measured in blocks, not miles.

I am delighted to be able to share my homes and this wonderful neighborhood.  Rent 1 or rent all 3. There is no management company to deal with, just me.  As the owner, I want you to love my Denver vacation homes and be charmed by the Congress Park-Cherry Creek Neighborhoods as I was over 20 years ago.  I live close by and always look forward to meeting the guests and chatting a bit if their schedule permits.

A stay at one of Velma’s Guest Houses also benefits the Denver non-profit, Stout Street Foundation. Visit for information about this organization.
