Reviewed October 11, 2012

From beginning to end, the word Hospitality was exemplified at every turn of my stay. While the property is physcially gorgeous, Carl and Bailey went to great lengths to accommodate my unusual travel schedule. The history of the building, in Romanesque fashion, was at first a lure.
Carl's culinary talents and Bailey's warmth & humor are a reason to return. The walk to the convention center was an ideal differentiator, separating work from the oasis that CHMB&BI provides.

Thank You Both. You would be the reason I'd reason to return to Denver let along Colorado!

Room Tip: Front of the house balcony was a bonus. Bring eye shades as the house is lit througout the night.

Carl and Bailey are terrific hosts. We stay at B&Bs all the time and this was one of our favorites. Carl's breakfasts are masterpieces of flavor and creativity. Came for a conference but because of the B&B location, I could go out for a walk and take in museums, historic homes or grab a great bite to eat. Will definitely return. Very romantic too.

Room Tip: We stayed in Gold Banner suite and it was terrific. Separate sitting room and nice fireplace. Hot tu...

What a terrific place!
My boyfriend and I came here on a weekend-in-the-city to get away from our house but not actually travel due to time constraints. We could not have picked a more perfect destination. Capitol Hill Mansion is in the heart of Denver, just a short walk from the Capitol, art museum, Colorado History museum, Cheesman Park, downtown library, 16th Street Mall, Molly Brown House, and many, many other attractions. Don't want to walk? The bus line is close by!
The neighborhood is wonderful. There are some really great houses to look at and Carl was amazing at giving us history lessons on the area.
The house is lovely! It's a beautiful old Victorian and Carl has taken the time to really give the place a unique and homey feel. It truly feels like you are at home, with Bailey and Carl being so hospitable but not overbearing. I love that a father and daughter team run this place. If you're lucky, you may even see the newest addition to the family, Miss Olivia Claire! I had the pleasure of meeting her and boy, what a charmer.
Now: the breakfast. Holy moly. So good! On our first day we had a delicious seasonal souffle with some out-of-this-world pastries. The coffee is also really good, nice and strong like I like it! The second day we had a creme brulee French toast with berries. Are you kidding me? This was the BEST French Toast I have ever had, so perfectly creamy tasting and just the right balance of sweet (it didn't melt your teeth with sugar!). We also thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor seating. The weather was awesome when we were there, birds were chirping, the garden was in full bloom and it was just a picture-perfect setting for a delicious breakfast. Later in the day there were cookies, these marvelous toffee oatmeal delights that I cannot stop thinking about. I need that recipe!

Seriously, folks. If you are looking for a vacation away from home but don't want to leave the city, come here! If you are from out of town, you will not find a better and more convenient locale to really see the heart of Denver. Don't miss this place! :)

First of all, the number one B&B rating is totally justified. Carl and Bailey will make you feel right at home in their beautiful home. After a 4 hour flight delay by Frontier Air, we arrived after midnight. The owners left an envelope with our names on it for after hours instructions. This was a real relief after the flight debacle. Breakfast in the garden patio was wonderful......so peaceful in the middle of a major US city. The owners gave us great restaurant tips for our 41st anniversary. Carl is quite popular. Every one knows him. Thanks guys.

Carl and Bailey are exceptional hosts. Everything was excellent, especially the breakfasts (which we ate on the patio every morning). The rooms are immaculate and each has special design features. We were in the Snowlover Room (with the mural and the balcony). Convenient location, quiet neighborhood, easy walk to downtown/museums. Don't miss the new Clyfford Still Museum.
Highly recommended!

Carl and his daughter are such nice people. We had a great stay here. The breakfast is comparable to a 5 star restaurant.

The location is perfect in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, about a 10 minute walk to downtown.

I would highly recommend it and will be back on my next trip to Denver.

Room Tip: We stayed in the snow lovers room, great balcony with a nice view of the rockies!

We stayed in the bluebell suite, which is even prettier than in the photo. The bed was huge and very comfortable, the whole place is beautifully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was cooked fresh every morning by Carl and was varied and delicious, served in the pretty garden.
The only snag, which in my opinion is not serious, is that the bluebell suite is right next to the kitchen and Carl's computer desk is right outside the suite door, so if you know he is there it might put you off being intimate with your partner, if you know what I mean ;-)
Still, I'm sorry we inly stayed 2 nights as it is a really delightful place to stay.
