Our company was born organically from the needs of ultra-luxury travelers and high-end homeowners. Since inception, we have invested in a select portfolio of our own exceptional properties and partnered with other homeowners to bring first-rate experiences to our guests.

We accompany guests as you would treat visiting family to make sure every stay is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. That each birthday, proposal, anniversary or special celebration our guests share with us is unforgettable.

We’re not just a company, we’re a travel and lifestyle community.

Larry Mueller

Larry has been active in the ultra-luxury real estate market for the past 20 years and has designed, restored and constructed luxury homes around the world. He founded Cuvée in 2006 as a vehicle to activate his passion for Investment, Lifestyle and Community.

The Community of Cuvée includes Investors, Rental Guests, like-minded property owners that utilize Cuvée for property and rental management and individuals and companies that support the philanthropic focus of Cuvée.

Over the past six years Cuvée has leveraged its core asset of the most incredible properties and services to raise over $7 million for charities across the US that provide aid to underprivileged children. Cuvée founded Flight to Luxury which is one of the most premier fundraising events in Denver and has a goal of raising $1.7M for Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver in September 2017.
