Boulder cottage description

It’s so Boulder……. but only moments away in the historic Original Town of Superior. This recently updated cottage was our Great Grandfathers and has been owned by our family since 1921. Both Great Grandpa and Grandpa Fred were coal miners in the Superior Mine. The cottage remains one of the few original houses built in Superior's Industrial Mine camp that operated from 1896 to 1945. Immaculate, comfortable, warm and bright, quiet and peaceful. Nestled under towering old ash and cottonwood trees, set on large 2 acre lush lot. Delightful, enclosed, heated sunroom, well appointed kitchen, comfy quality bed and linens, backyard covered patio, covered front porch with swing. Our cottage invokes rest and relaxation after a day of adventure and exploring. A perfect home base for those visiting the Front Range and Denver. Best suited for occupancy two. Approx 700 sq ft. Please bring your own hot spot/network device as we no longer provide internet services.

Easy access to interstate, Boulder and Denver. 7.9 mi and a straight shot to the heart of Boulder. 7.6 mi to Campus & Folsom Field

Walk to Louisville, shopping and restaurants. Two blocks and a quick walk to RTD, Regional Transportation District bus stops. RTD Call-n-Ride available. 3 easy miles to the Louisville Recreation Center. Hop on the bus!

Superior is a historic coal mining town of the late 1800’s. Named after the “superior” high grade coal pulled from its mines. The town is approximately four square miles in area, has 594 acres of parks, green space, open space and 27 miles of trails. Stunning views of the Front Range of the Rockies, Flatirons and Eldora Mountain are abundant from the trails and parks within our town.

Two blocks and a quick walk to the Coal Creek trail. Picturesque (an understatement), well groomed, packed, soft-surface trail that parallels Coal Creek from S. McCaslin Boulevard in Superior to 120th Street in Lafayette. Breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountain's Front Range, Flatirons, Eldorado Mountains. Walk the Coal Creek trail at sunset and our town will capture your heart and soul. Extensions planned to be completed in 2012 will reach Vista Parkway in Erie. Currently 6.4 mi. in length.

Please email or call owner for availability. Rates are accurate as posted. Air taxi available to surrounding communities. Breakfast/brunch service available for delivery. Guest Guide on site to answer questions and sway you in certain directions.
