Lumber Baron Inn & Gardens $$
2555 W. 37th Ave., Denver
COST: $150–250 per night
The Highlands neighborhood is brimming with exquisite turn-of-the-20th-century homes, but perhaps none is more special than the 8,500-square-foot Lumber Baron Inn. The inn is something of a special events center, hosting weddings and murder mystery dinners in the 3rd-floor ballroom, as well as bed-and-breakfast guests. Each of the five well-appointed rooms has a whirlpool tub and free Wi-Fi.
The inn is walking distance from some good restaurants, and is only a mile from the sights of downtown. A spacious garden with flowering trees and seating areas make it more inviting in the spring and summer.
