Boulder condo description

The Highland Guesthouse is located on the south bank of Boulder Creek, within 2 blocks of the Pearl Street Mall and Downtown Boulder with it's many restaurants, art galleries, Breweries, shops, nightlife and live entertainment. Enjoy the many summer music events and festivals in the park, Boulder's farmer's Market and walk to the Shakespeare Festival. The Boulder County Courthouse and Municipal Building, Public Library, Riverfront Park are next door and down the road walking distance is the University of Colorado campus.
Also 10 minutes to IBM, Interlocken, and Google.
Our guesthouse is the ideal place for individuals in town for business, visiting professors or vacationing couples. Boulder Creek and miles of running and biking paths are right outside the backdoor while everything else one could ask for is within walking or biking distance. No car is necessary, although we do provide covered off street parking.

You might be a first-time visitor to Boulder or a longtime fan, but either way, we're betting there's something here at the foot of the Rocky Mountains that you'll love. Check out this video on Boulder: http://www.bouldercoloradousa.com/visitor/boulder-video/, Maybe you had a little taste, but we believe the best way to truly enjoy Boulder is firsthand. The azure-blue skies, chef-driven culinary creations, spree-inducing shopping scene — and those magnificent, ever-present Flatirons — are all best seen, felt, savored and explored in person, any time of year.

The Highland Guesthouse sits on a 120-year old property that has been lovingly restored with new and vintage details, state of the art technology and award-winning gardens. Enjoy a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a cozy living area with a leather sofa sleeper and wood-burning stove, walk-in closet with washer and dryer, deluxe bath with luxurious linens and a large private deck with patio furniture and gas stove. The unit is equipped with a luxurious queen sized bed and a pull out sofa that can accommodate two small children or one adult. The Guesthouse is fully furnished with everything you may need from the kitchen to the bath and bedroom. We are a pet friendly property!

The unique advantage of our Guesthouse is full access to the Historic Highland Building right next door. Formerly an elementary school, the building is now home to the Highland City Club, executive office suites, world class dining, and spa services. You are invited to use the facilities and attend social events sponsored by the City Club at the club member rates. Additional amenities of your stay include access to professional services for all your business needs, such as support staff, office equipment, meeting rooms and full multi-media capabilities.

Our Guesthouse provides a comfortable, at-home feeling with quality comparable to world class hotels like the St. Julien. Whether you are here to work or play, this unique home-away-from-home will be a sanctuary from which to experience the bustle of the city and its surrounding natural beauty and recreational adventures.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1978

          About the owner: As a young man I fell in love with Boulder and decided to make it my home. I went on a quest to find the perfect building to house my office. The Historic Highland School, built in 1891 and perched majestically on the high bank of the Boulder Creek, was perfect. I purchased Highland and began the painstaking task of bringing her back to life. Twenty-seven years later, surrounded by graceful, award winning gardens and peacefully flowing creeks, this historic landmark is a true Boulder gem!

          Why the Owner Chose Boulder:
          After the renovation of Historic Highland, I custom built four residential town homes nestled on the bank of Boulder Creek. The Highland Guest House is town house unit #4 and sites on the grounds of Historic Highland surrounded by lush trees, award winning gardens and Boulder's most popular creekside pedestrian and bicycle path system.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          The Highland Guest House sits perched on the bank of Boulder Creek and the extensive Boulder Creek Path. Stretching from the mountains of Boulder Canyon, through downtown Boulder, out into the plains, the Boulder Creek Path is great for walking, jogging, biking, and rollerblading. While staying at the Highland Guest House our guests have access to the Highland City Club, Boulder's inspiring social club, and the business services of the Highland Office Building.
