After being cooped up for nearly a year, chances are you’ve been dreamingly eyeing the suitcase for months, fantasizing about visiting sandy beaches, hitting the coast, or venturing overseas. Ahem! Your dog would like to remind you that she also longs for a vacation. While traveling isn’t safe right now, we are blessed with lots of gems in Colorado. Take your woof for a staycation at one of these Denver Airbnbs that allow dogs.
We verified that all rentals were dog-friendly at the time of publication, but make sure you let hosts know about your four-legged guests, and be pup-ared to pay a pet deposit.
1. Cozy Carriage House in Denver’s Oldest Neighborhood
Celebrated by Architectural Digest as the most beautiful Airbnb in Colorado, this 1880s carriage house is top-dog. The home features exposed brickwork, salvaged barn doors, heated floors, and mint-green French doors that open up to a private patio. Is your dog unimpressed by quirky, historic architecture? He’ll love strolling around the historic RiNo neighborhood, striking a pose in front of the vibrant murals, and checking out dog-friendly breweries.
2. Vista Dome
With sweeping 360 panoramic views of the Rockies, the Vista Dome in Jefferson is well worth the 70-mile drive from Denver. Guests rave about the unique geodesic architecture and peaceful, secluded surroundings. Pups give it two paws up for a great dog run. With four beds and five baths, it’s got plenty of room for families with children. If you’re visiting in winter, make sure that you have 4-wheel drive.
3. Tiny Urban Oasis
Does your fren fantasize about selling all her earthly possessions and living off the grid in an adorable tiny home? Give her a taste of the tiny home lifestyle in this sleek, modern 200-square-foot home situated in the Villa Park neighborhood. Your dog can frolic on the patio while you read on the hammock or cozy up in front of the chiminea. If pup needs to stretch her legs more, head over to Paco Sánchez Park or Lakewood Gulch Trail.
4. Santa Fe Art District Charmer With Skyline Views
This unique, charming home built in 1885 makes a perfect staycation for the dog who is both artsy and sophisticated. Centrally located, it’s a short stroll to admire the murals and galleries on Santa Fe, let your dog blow off some steam at Cheesman Park, or head to downtown to enjoy some dog-friendly brewery patios. When your dogs start barking, enjoy the memory foam beds and smart TV. Stairs are steep, so this Airbnb’s best for a young or agile pooch.
5. Unique Geodesic Dome in Rollinsville
Sometimes doggos and their peeps need to unplug from the hustle and bustle of city life. Located 44 miles from Denver, the Rocky Mountain Dome is a peaceful, dreamy getaway. Take in expansive views of the Collegiate Peaks from the sunroom, explore the wooded meadows, soak in the hot tub, and meander on the private riverstone meditation labyrinth. At night, snuggle up with your dog and stargaze through skylight windows.
