Welcome to The Starkey Mansion

Come experience the luxury of The Starkey Mansion.
An event destination and guest accommodations in downtown Denver.

Located in the heart of Denver’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood just a block from Colorado’s State Capitol, The Starkey Mansion has a deep history that rivals any of its storied neighbors. The Cuthbert-Dines-Starkey Mansion was built in 1901 by Lucius Montrose Cuthbert and his wife, Gertrude Hill Berger Cuthbert. Gertrude was the sister to Denver socialite Mrs. Crawford Hill, one of Denver’s original “Sacred 36” members. The exclusive social club allowed members into the inner ranks of certain New York and Rhode Island society.

The Starkey Mansion is an old Georgian beauty that has never been allowed to decay. Rather, owners have continued to upgrade, polish and refine its natural beauty. The four-story Georgian mansion has a formal Queen Anne-style that is juxtaposed with modern art and furniture.

 In December 1922, the Dines family took over ownership of the mansion, and it was kept in their nurturing hands for more than 50 years, and Allen Dines served in the Colorado legislature. From the mansion’s front steps, one can see the reflection of the sun off the golden dome of Colorado’s State Capitol building.

In July 1994, Mrs. Starkey purchased the mansion as the international site for The Starkey International Institute for Household Management. Over the last three decades, the mansion has served as headquarters for both training and placing her graduates with the world’s high-net-worth. Mrs. Starkey is known as the “First Lady of Service,” and as a guest, you will experience her expert eye for detail and service that will make you feel right at home.

Amenities

Over the last year, the mansion has enjoyed yet another transformation.  Mrs. Starkey has invested over $600,000 to uncover yet more of her mansion’s original splendor. It is magnificent, with its restored copper roof and hand-crafted windows that when opened, let in Colorado’s healing sun. Each of the bedrooms has its own HVAC system for individual heat and air control, as well as Mrs. Starkey’s themed décor that varies room-to-room. We have graced our birch floors with fine Persian and Afghani handmade rugs and a wonderful art collection that includes Picasso’s lithographs. We have six available suites or bedrooms strategically located throughout the mansion.

We have seven fireplaces, 4.5 bathrooms, a large traditional library with a grand piano, a lovely living room and a dining room with pocket doors.
