“SO, THIS MUST BE HEAVEN!”
When my husband and I decided we needed a break and change of scenery from Phoenix we looked to Denver. After spending hours researching where to stay, reading reviews, we booked 11 nights at the Capitol Hill Mansion. I cannot believe our good fortune. To say it is perfect, is an understatement. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, Carl. The entrance is full of charm and beauty – graced with hanging plants and antique furniture. I chose the Bluebell Suite. Oh my! Done in white and blue I felt like I had entered a summer cottage on the East Coast.
Little did I know the best was yet to come. Breakfast was served every morning in a beautiful courtyard filled with plants, an herb garden, hummingbird feeders, several small water features, and a corner doll house. All tables had white tablecloths and napkins, place settings were blue and white China handed down to Carl from his mother. Simply beautiful.
Carl does not know how to do an ordinary breakfast. He is an incredible, creative chef. We would start with coffee (from a French press) OJ, water, yogurt, and a plate of fresh fruit. On normal days that would have been enough for me. But who could refuse egg soufflés, homemade waffles, eggs Benedict, pancakes with apples and walnuts? And let us not forget the homemade breads, croissants and muffins filled with fresh fruit. My favorite? If I had to guess it was his creme brûlée French toast made with brioche topped with fresh berries.
Conclusion: Yes, I would highly recommend staying here. Both Carl and his beautiful daughter, Bailey, made our stay a memorable one. I cannot thank you enough.
