About the property

Our home has great mountain views, is warm & inviting, & can sleep 6

Managed by Mountain Moon Guesthouse nearby, you can be among the first guests to stay in our unique home! Guests are sure to enjoy a memorable vacation in this octagonal home in the mountains. Families are welcome! We welcome Thanksgiving week and Christmas guests, too, for a winter wonderland holiday. (4 wheel drive required)

We can sleep 4: in the master bedroom's double bed, the second bedroom's 2 twin beds. For an extra fee, we can accommodate two extra guests who can use the hide-a-bed sofa in the living room's queen-sized bed with a memory foam mattress.

The living area is surrounded by sliding glass doors and windows for panoramic views of the area. You also have the use of a new propane BBQ grill.

The fully equipped kitchen, with everything you need, is perfect for a quick breakfast, and the dining area is right next to it for more formal meals.

We have great wifi which can accommodate multiple simultaneous uses for streaming to our brand new smart tv or your laptop or tablet. Also, calls to anywhere within the USA are included in your rental fee. (There are extra charges for calls to customer assistance or to outside the USA.)

Outside, Mountain View Octavia has a wrap around deck which gives you several great views, depending on which side you sit. With its octagonal design, you can have a shaded place to sit if you want to avoid the sun by just moving your chairs around the octagon...If the sun is what you want to bask in, you can follow it around the octagon too! There are folding chairs for your deck use near the washing machine and dryer. (Please bring them in at nighttime.)

Our home is located just 10 miles NW of Boulder, so we have the best of both worlds here. We have 2.3 acres of land and are right next to the Roosevelt National Forest. Many fabulous mountains and national forests are nearby as well, including great hiking trails and fishing spots (Brainard Lake and the Saint Vrain River in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area). Guests can enjoy mountain biking, fishing and hiking right here or drive to Rocky Mountain National Park at Estes, which is not far away.

Boulder has everything you would expect from the BEST CITY in America! Micro-Breweries, restaurants, shopping, art galleries, and more. You can spend the day at our home relaxing or take in these Boulder attractions!

Visiting the quirky and unique JAMESTOWN MERCANTILE, locally called the “Merc” (in continuous use since 1902) is a must for all visitors. It has a unique reputation that extends far beyond the local area and is a destination for touring bands and artists, visitors and cyclists. It serves excellent food, local beers, and hosts a range of musical groups 2 or 3 times a week ranging from folk, bluegrass, rock, singer/songwriter or open mic nights. Visitors can keep up to date on current events and menu at the Merc by googling “Jamestown QT” and checking out the local forum or phone the Merc on 303-442-5847. This local eatery features live music most nights of the week, good cooking, and scrumptious breakfasts on the weekends. This building contained the Mercantile store in the 1800s, which sold provisions to the local miners who came prospecting and panning for gold! You will have a golden vacation at Octavia, so come on over to us and be among our very first guests!

There is a park at the end of Lower Main St, (go over the bridge opposite the Fire Hall) which contains a children’s play area, large field, basketball and tennis court. There is also a labyrinth next to the basketball court.

If visitors go west and uphill on the County road from the property they will be able to see the St. Vrain Trail (3 miles) or eventually join the Peak to Peak Highway in 15 mins. This gives access to Brainard Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park (32 miles) for hiking, biking, and fishing. Also, Eldora Ski resort is 27 miles from Jamestown.

(There may be a small party renting the basement studio when you visit us. You may make new friends if you introduce yourselves!)

About Manager: Jyoti Sharp

We are lucky enough to have been able to oversee the building of our unique mountain home to our own design. We love it and are sure you will too! We are a "mixed" marriage: Kim is British and Elizabeth is American, and we love visiting our grandchildren in Colorado and Britain as often as possible.

Why Manager: Jyoti Sharp chose Jamestown

We love Jamestown, and anticipate that you will too! We chose to build out home here because of Jamestown's friendly character, its closeness to Boulder, and the great mountain activities we can pursue right outside our front door. We are sure you will love it too!

average rating of 4.7 based on 10 reviews

First class accomodations in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Octavia couldn't have been better for my family. The pictures don't do the house justice. We found this place to be private with views from the deck ranging from forest to mountains. Seemed to be off the beaten path but central to many of the places we wanted to visit in the area.

Entire experience exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful seclusion!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and clean. Nice secluded area. A couple of days into our stay we got neighbors in the basement. It scared us for a bit because it was late and very dark and we thought it was an animal of some kind. But, you can hear everything in the cabin so we knew it was other guests. There is no cell service. Great wifi. We bought an hdmi cable to watch some movies one night.

Perfect Location, wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful vacation! The house itself is very homey and comfortable. Surrounded by large windows it has absolutely gorgeous views of the mountain directly across from it. We cooked in the kitchen and the grill, we sat on the porch and looked at the mountain. Every morning I made drawings! Fantastic! This house could not be better situated, less than half an hour from Boulder and about 50 minutes from Estes Park (via a very scenic drive) and the Rocky Mountain National Park. Jamestown locals and the Mercantile are friendly, interesting and eclectic, we very much enjoyed getting to know them. When we left, my father forgot his keys, the manager contacted me immediately and offered to mail them. I would recommend Mountain View Octavia to anyone! Thank you so much for a very special vacation!

Owner's Response: Dear Michael, Thank you for taking the time to write your review...we are very happy you loved your visit and found our home to be a peaceful place to recharge your batteries! We love the location too, being in the mountains, but with the access to Boulder and Estes Park. We would love to see your sketches of our views! We hope you will stay with us again, Elizabeth & Kim
