Property description

Enjoy beautiful Boulder from the best location possible, right downtown, in a renovated historic 1880's Victorian home. This light-filled second floor suite offers the best views, beautiful accommodations and the ultimate in convenience for the vacationer, visiting professional or artist seeking a retreat.

This spacious suite features a private outside entrance, private patio, microwave, refrigerator, Keurig pod coffee maker, granite and tile full bath, living room with a large flat screen TV, cable, DVD and MP3 hook-up, a writing desk with complimentary wi-fi, a queen-sized bed, a view of the Flatirons and plenty of south facing windows. We offer free off-street parking and there are no hidden resort or management fees.

Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sun set behind the mountains from a private deck. Stroll to any of dozens of fine restaurants and pick up your morning coffee from a generous handful of local cafés. Heirloom roses grace the grounds that make this property a legend among local rosarians.

Let us provide you with extra amenities to make your stay more comfortable. These include housekeeping upon request, laundry by the pound, and a local’s knowledge of the best hiking, dining and entertainment venues.

Our central downtown location, coupled with nearby public transportation to Denver and the Eldora Ski Resort, make this the perfect no-car vacation. The Colorado University campus is an easy 15 minute walk away. Rent a mountain bike and all of Boulder is within your reach.

We operate a third floor VRBO property above this location (check it out at vrbo.com/125003). This is a Victorian home and despite our best efforts to soundproof, you will hear footsteps and muffled sound, please be advised and decide accordingly. My family resides in the main house but there are NO SHARED SPACES. The only adjoining wall is in the bathroom. The private entrance to the property is up one flight of exterior stairs and there are no shared hallways.

There is a small refrigerator, microwave oven for storing and heating up leftovers, and Keurig pod coffee maker, but no actual kitchen. I provide daily dish service so you don't have to do the washing up, just leave your soiled dishes in the hall and I'll exchange them for clean ones.

Pets are not permitted.

You will enjoy the best Boulder has to offer in a warm and well-appointed Victorian suite, right in the heart of town.

Marijuana is legal in Colorado and we welcome tourists of all kinds. Please keep in mind that we have small children and don't want them exposed to drunken or altered behavior.

Cigarettes of any kind, open flames, pipes, bongs and vaporizers are not to be used on the property (inside or out) because of the fire hazard and odor. It will result in the loss of your entire damage deposit.
-------------------------------
Minimum Stay Policy: I have a five-day minimum stay policy for bookings made more than a month in advance, especially May through November. I will consider shorter stays, especially mid-week so please do not hesitate to ask.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made more than thirty (30) days prior to the arrival date will incur no penalty. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay and that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full advance payment. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent. We recommend that you purchase Trip Cancellation Insurance in the event that your trip has to be canceled reasons such as illness, accident, death of a family member or traveling companion, jury duty, weather conditions which cause delay/cancellation of travel or fire or flood in your home, this coverage protects your investment and will reimburse the normally non-refundable payments you make for your vacation rental. InsureMyTrip.com provides many levels of vacation and trip protection.

SCAM ALERT!!!! I do not list my property on Craigslist. Please conduct all transactions through VRBO or HomeAway. I would appreciate knowing if my information is being misrepresented on Craigslist so I may report it to the authorities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Lonny and I work from home. I am a writer, artist and fitness instructor, Lonny sells on Ebay. We have two boys and a Great Dane named Blue. We are home most of the time and always on hand to help you with anything.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder:
This property is more than a vacation property, it is part of our home. We live on the premises in the main house with the penthouse being a stand-alone property. This insures that while you have complete privacy, you also have the peace of mind knowing that help with anything, be it a problem with the space, the need for more towels, or advice on where to eat or to go for an adventure is just a few steps away.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
You will leave your heart in Boulder if you stay at the Frye house. You will not find better accommodations, views, amenities and location anywhere else. From the moment you arrive you will feel at home and relaxed. Whether your goal is to relax, check out the nightlife and dining, do business, visit family or scope out the local real-estate, you will find everything you need here.
