About Polly Letofsky
My name is Polly, and I spent years -- YEARS -- traveling around the world. While that was always a good time, I am thrilled to be settled into the quiet, but hipster hood of Cory Merrill in Denver. My claim to fame is that I'm the first woman to walk around the world. That lead to the writing of a book about my walk, and that lead me straight into a new business in the publishing industry. So now I am running a bustling little publishing company. (The garage out in the back has been transformed into the My Word Publishing World Headquarters! You can almost always find me out there bringing new stories into the world) Because of my walking history, I still lead a walk every Sunday morning, followed by breakfast. If you're here on a Sunday morning, please join us, it's a hoot!

Why Polly Letofsky chose Cory - Merrill
Cory-Merrill is a HOT neighborhood, just having been voted the second Most Livable Neighborhood in Denver by 5280 Magazine. If you can walk 100 yards to a mile you've got yourself a wide variety of restaurants and shops from South Gaylord, DU, Wash Park, and Colorado Blvd. You in the mood for Thai food? Boom, 2.5 blocks away. Vietnamese food? Boom, 1 block away. Italian, pizza, Chinese, Asian, Mexican, and the good ol' Ihop all within 1-3 blocks. If you can walk a full mile it opens your options 10-fold! Besides food, there are also a number of parks near by, the closest is 1.5 blocks away with basketball court and tennis courts for your use.
What makes this House unique
The Nest sits right between two light-rail stops: .6 miles to one (Colorado Station), 1.2 miles to the other (DU) -- which also has Denver's B-Cycle (Denver's bicycle-share program). We also sit just 2 blocks from Colorado Blvd, and the entrance to I-25, which are the two main thoroughfares in Denver. We're 6 miles from both downtown and DTC, ($11 - $15 Uber ride) and 18 miles to the airport (Uber costs: $23 in low hours, $40 in rush hours) Bus to downtown is 200 yards away. The parking is street parking only, but there is plenty of it. Bike trails that encompass the city are a 1/2 mile and 1 mile away in three different directions.
It's not child proofed, but fine for kids.

Perfect weekend rental
We came to the Denver area and needed a place to stay. Polly’s basement apartment was the perfect place for our family. It was comfortable, spacious, and nicely decorated. Polly was an attentive and welcoming host and all of our needs were not just met but exceeded.
I highly recommend staying here!
We sure loved having you, Becky. I hope the boys got to play in the snow! Hope to see you back in Denver.
This location was convenient to downtown, without all the traffic and headaches. Polly was a pleasure to work with! We will definitely stay here again!
Cozy place, great host
The Nest was a lovely place to stay for a couple of days. The furniture was comfy, tea & mugs were appreciated, and the apartment was spacious for 2 people. Decor was warm and fun. Polly was very helpful and welcoming. I was able to walk and take public transport fairly easily- it took about half an hour to walk to DU. The shower was a bit small, but everything else contributed to a comfortable stay. I'd stay there again!
Whitney, Please come again. Hopefully you'll have time to go see Red Rocks. I'll take you there next time!
Found the unit rather last minute and had a great stay. Living and dining area is spacious and comfortable. Decor throughout was eclectic - we all loved it! Beds were comfortable as was seating throughout. The in unit washer and dryer was a bonus and greatly appreciated. Location and Polly’s restaurant recommendations were excellent!
Polly was an excellent host. The beds were comfortable and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend this house.
Mary, you and your friends are welcome any time. You're the perfect guests. Thank you so much.
Polly's listing exceeds expectations and meets every need you could have during your stay. If there is anything you need, Polly is happy to help. Polly is incredibly friendly and nice, everything you could want in a host. The Nest is the perfect place to stay if you want to see Denver and the surrounding area. I definitely recommend the nest and will be looking it up next time I make my way to denver.
Andrew, you and your friends officially get the award of BEST GUESTS EVER. You left the place so clean, even did some laundry for me! Maybe I'll start an award ha ha. Please come again.
We are located near two lightrail stops, 1 mile from DU, and near multiple hospitals, and walkable to multitudes of restaurants and shopping.
