Property description

Make your visit to Boulder a retreat for a family or group. Once you check in you may never get in the car again. You'll find plenty of fun right at home with a wide open living area on the main level and the media and game room in the lower level. If you prefer to be outside there is an eating deck with a heater,and a grassy back yard great for socializing and togetherness for all ages. Or relax with a glass of wine or a cup of tea in the spa house right out the back door. The heated spa house consists of a dressing area with a SAUNA for warming up after a day of skiing or biking, and a private outdoor HOT TUB overlooking Boulder Creek, so you can watch and listen as it flows by. Restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, grocery, hiking trails, creek path, and the University of Colorado are all within a short walk - or take one of the cruiser bikes to the Farmer's Market! The main floor is open and bright for accommodating a large group. There is lots of comfortable seating in the living area, a large dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. There is also a separate den which doubles as a sleeping porch with a queen sized convertible sofa. Three bedrooms all with their own en suite bathroom are upstairs. The master bedroom has a beautifully appointed master bathroom and a deck overlooking the backyard and out to Boulder Creek. The 4th and 5th bedroom share a bathroom and are in the lower level. There is also a large media room/family room in the lower level that is great for watching sports or movies, or it can just be a 2nd large living area.

NOTE: There is a cottage next door connected to the backyard by a short path that sleeps 4-6 additional people. The cottage can be added to your reservation to accommodate a total of 18-20 people! See VRBO #572549. Ask the manager for more details!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We are a family of 4 with 2 college aged boys who were born and raised in Boulder. Gary is in the business of designing and building natural water parks on rivers and waterways, and Leslie is a long time attorney for Boulder County. We are avid kayakers, mountain bikers, skiers, stand up paddlers, and river rafters!

Why Boulder:
Our number one priority when buying a home in Boulder was that we lived next to Boulder Creek. We are all avid Kayakers and we love to kayak down the creek during high water. We also enjoy the convenience of this location along with the world class neighbors who we love.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is in one of the oldest family neighborhoods in Boulder. We believe in having fun so we made this house so fun you'll never want to leave! The sauna and hot tub in the spa-house is the source of many hours of relaxation and laughter - and when you add this home to the Creekside Cottage next door, you'll have your own fun compound! You'll be walking distance to everything that makes Boulder, well. . . Boulder! Although it is surrounded by 100 year old Victorian homes, this Craftsman Style home was built in 2007 using all of the comforts of radiant heat, air conditioning and top of the line appliances. There are so many things to do right at the house: hot tub, sauna, creek fun, and a game and media room. There's fun for all ages here.
