The space

Hi Folks! Welcome to the “Osmyn Parker House”!
I have lovingly restored this old 1887 Queen Anne and it has been featured in numerous newspaper articles as well as being the center piece for several annual Historic Denver house tours. Being the sole resident of this grand old house, only 9 blocks from the center of the city, I love sharing it with interesting travelers!!!
This beautiful home lies in the the heart of the San Rafael Historic district, one of Denver's greatest historic neighborhoods close to downtown, City Park, 17th Avenue Restaurant Row and so much more. Relax outside on our beautiful and peaceful back patio or jump on a bike (the Denver B-Cycle station is only two blocks away!) and tour around Denver. You are welcome to use the kitchen, living and dining as well.
While things are very "walkable", there is also a bus stop just across the street or a cab ride to the convention center (center of downtown) is only $6-8 in inclement weather.
Since we are opening up our home and our lives to you we would greatly appreciate it if you would make sure that your profile is filled out before you submit a request.
Cheers,
Jim

House Rules

This is a NO SMOKING home.
Share this beautiful home with me ... the dining room, living room, kitchen and peaceful backyard is yours to use. This is a very social household, so don't be surprised to find friends or neighbors in the back yard to join for a glass of wine. Please feel free to come and go as you please. I am very sociable but do not expect that you must be. Ask as many questions as you like, join for a glass of wine or be as private as you wish. You will have a bath across the hall that is shared with a single room if it is occupied by a guest. I am not a Bed and Breakfast and although there will surely be tea and coffee on hand, please expect to take care of yourself for all of your meals. Also, since I am opening up my home and and life to you I would greatly appreciate it if you would make sure that your profile is filled out before you submit a request.

Really enjoyed my stay at Jim's- the house is beautiful and my single room was a great comfy retreat. Jim was around for interesting chats and helpful tips, but was also active leading his busy life! It's a really pretty area, close to buses and downtown-I wish I could have hear…

I was in Denver for the first time recently, in town for a music festival and decided to make a vacation of it. Frankly, I can't recommend the house in Five Points strongly enough. The neighborhood has an amazing history as a historically Black community. Mr. Wiseman is a…

Jim is a wonderful host - very communicative, friendly, and respectful of your time and space. I enjoyed sitting out on the back patio in the morning and enjoying some donuts from a shop down the street he recommended. Great visit!
