“I grew up in North Denver and have always been an admirer of the house and all the amazing architecture in the neighborhood.” Joel Bryant, chef and co-owner of the Lumber Baron shared. “I studied history at the University of Colorado and have always had a passion for Denver and Colorado history.  When the Lumber went up for sale my wife Elaine and I were very excited about taking on this new journey. There were so many signs that this was the right move for us and it seemed as if the house really wanted US to purchase it. We try to make every guest feel as if this is their second home, and I think we do a really good job with that. We love getting to know our guests and have many invites to visit people who have stayed with us from around the globe!  We also offer custom wine dinners, brunch on Sunday, and high tea every day (all with 24 hr reservations).”
