It's my ultimate goal! I hope you find my homes delightful and peaceful, offering you a place of well being during your stay.

Why Michelle Thompson chose Englewood

My homes are eco- friendly, serene and mindfully furnished with quality linens, stylish furnishings and conveniences that make your life comfortable. Local artists are featured throughout the house in photographs, with images of Colorado and surrounding states complimenting the rustic style of the house. Landscaping provides plenty of outdoor living, which Colorado is so well known for, allowing you to enjoy your coffee or wine in the clean fresh Colorado air most days of the year.

What makes this cottage unique

Private and conveniently located, this renovated Carriage House is perfect for a weekend getaway or during a necessary stay at one of the nearby hospitals. It has been used as a guest house for several years and is now available for your use while in the Denver area. The details have been carefully considered and are intended to make you feel at home during your stay!

Small, cozy and private

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Urban Oasis, Private Retreat was great! I stayed there with my husband and pups while we were in transition from moving from TX to CO. While moving to a different state can sometimes be a little hectic and stressful (especially with pets) coming "home" to this carriage house made me feel cozy and stress free. I felt like I was on vacation. My pups enjoyed hanging out in the private fenced yard with us while taking in some sunshine. I got to meet the owner, Michelle and she is very sweet and welcoming. Overall, we all enjoyed our stay and I would stay there again if the need ever arises. I definitely recommend a stay here if you're looking in the area!

Cozy cottage for sure!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle has really designed a fun little house that looks and feels like a cottage. My husband, and our two pets stayed for a month while we waited for our new house to be completed. Our dog Cali loved playing in the private little yard and learned how to use a dog door that is conveniently placed on the front door. Everything was provided for us and all we had to bring with us were our clothes! One of the amenities that we appreciated was high speed internet which enabled us to transact business easily and the cottage has reliable cell service as well. Michelle is a great landlord and she was always very responsive to our texts and phone calls. Wonderful experience and we would highly recommend renting this property!

Lovely little place, quiet location close to downtown Englewood

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at a property owned and managed by Michelle. She always reaches out the day of check in to get your ETA and asks you to text her back and let her know that you have gained entry without issue and found everything that you need in the unit. I think this is a very nice touch, makes you feel taken care of! And then you have her # so that if you need something you can shoot her a text. If you do, she is always very quick to respond and very accommodating in my experience.

The unit itself is perfect for a single, or even a couple with a child and a pet in tow. It is clean and stocked with everything you could need to prepare a meal, and includes supplies for the bathroom and laundry.

Downtown Englewood has some great options for dining, shopping and even a show. This unit is about a mile walk to the nearest light rail station to head into Denver.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Michelle's carriage house for a week over Christmas while visiting our son. Would highly recommend this, or any of Michelle's other, residence(s). The enclosed back yard would be really nice in warm weather. The property is pet-friendly, yet there were no obvious signs of any former guest having pets - no spots on the furniture, chewed furniture, etc. Property was extremely clean and looked well cared for. Would DEFINITELY stay there again.

Private retreat! Wonderful Carriage House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Englewood Carriage House in mid Nov 2017. It was a private, cozy, quiet retreat to come home to at the end of each busy day while visiting family! The large fenced courtyard was a huge plus with our two golden retrievers to relax with us off leash. The cottage was nicely furnished, spotless, the linens were quality and Michelle, the owner has it stocked with every item you could possibly need in the kitchen. Michelle was so kind and helpful if she was needed or if you had questions. And did I mention parking? We had our own private parking space! We look forward to staying here on our future visits to the Denver area! Thanks Michelle!
