Lynette's place is beautiful; the decor was painstakingly selected and provides a comfortable atmosphere. The house is also clean and fully stocked with linens. The laundry came in handy. There are a few good places to eat nearby (The Plimoth!) and the activity centers are a long walk or short ride away.

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.
