Located in the heart of Boulder! Walk 5 blocks to the famous Pearl St Mall & historic district or 2 blocks to Whole Foods (also called Ideal Market) Vic's Coffee, Bread-works Bakery/Cafe, Wine Merchant, Rada Restaurant, fine dining etc.
The main cottage has two bedrooms and a large sleeping loft which sleeps 6 comfortably. The cottage in the garden can sleep additional guests for a total of 8.
We have been inn-keepers and vacation rental owners for over 20 years and work extremely hard to ensure all our guests are happy. We provide detailed restaurant recommendations, extensive visitor’s guide info etc. We have lots of repeat visitors and we think our guests really appreciate how much we care!
The house is on a very quiet street and is well stocked with everything you'll need for a comfortable and happy stay. It is well appointed with antiques and Pottery Barn style furnishings. The luxury linens are by Ralph Lauren, Garnett Hill and other high end brands.
The house faces south and is bright and sunny year-round. It has a refuge-like feeling, everything is designed to be cozy and comfortable.
It has a gourmet kitchen with gas stove and every mini-appliance you could ask for, real cloth napkins & table linens etc. There are 3 dining areas, a formal dining table inside, a large dining table on the deck with mountain views and an additional dining table in the front garden so you can enjoy Boulder's beautiful year-round sunny weather.
There is a combined living/dining room, well-appointed cook’s kitchen, bathroom with spa towels and two bedrooms on the main floor. Each bedroom has a 5 star, hotel-grade bed and linens. The 1st bedroom has a queen and 2nd a queen or double depending on recently we've bought new beds. Each bedroom has two big windows that allow lots of natural light and good curtains for those who like to sleep in. Plenty of extra (new!) pillows, blankets etc.
On occasion we include the rental of a vacant, additional small guest cottage in the back garden for an additional fee so technically the house can sleep 8-10 but we prefer to rent to smaller parties.
The fenced in backyard is huge and has a large grassy 'playing field' where our guests love to play volleyball, soccer, badminton, lacrosse, croquet, enjoy picnics etc. There is a swing set and climbing structure for small children as well as a very sweet tree-house.
There are also 16 huge raised garden beds, fruit trees, etc. Our guests find the property charming, it has a country in the city feeling. The yard is private with a fence that is 6 feet tall with solid cedar pickets.
Our home is one block from the 13th st bike path which takes you to the famous Boulder Creek Bike Path and famous Farmer’s Market. This bike path goes for miles all over Boulder County and up into the mountains. It’s also great for walking, jogging, mountain biking, and rollerblading. The 14th St bike path (3 doors down) provides a lovely, quiet, short-cut which takes you past the Historic Boulder Theater and lands you right at the Pearl St Mall and historic district.
The central location makes it approximately 5 minute’s drive to the University of Colorado, CU, Naropa Institute, Chautauqua, Boulder Canyon & gateway to Nederland, Eldora Skiing Peak to Peak Scenic Highway. Boulder Community Hospital is also a few blocks away and we frequently have guests who come for medical treatments and recuperate in our cozy home.
We are no longer able to accept dogs or pets of any kind, thank you for your understanding.
Please note: We have lots of furniture stored on site and can meet individual guest’s needs for furnishings, including in the non-traditional loft bedroom (which is not suitable for very tall guests due to low ceiling or elderly guests due to the built-in ladder style steps). We also change out our summer cotton linens and comforters for winter flannel sheet and feather duvets when the weather gets cold. We also regularly upgrade furniture, beds, table linens, artwork, rugs etc. We have lots of photos available on our other site or we can mail you photos taken today directly if you’d like! Please also note we are about to remodel so we haven't painted recently or done things we would normally be doing like re-building the deck etc. We are currently offering a discount to offset this!
