Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for accommodating us while we were between homes. The apt was comfortable and cozy and the location is great. While we're certainly looking forward to our new home in the 'burbs we will definitely miss our daily walks to Wild Oats."

Nice, Clean, Central Location

  • 5 of 5

Such a relaxing week at the "Lab House"! My hubby and I were visiting Boulder for a friends wedding, and decided to spend the week exploring. This was the perfect "home base" for our adventures. It was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed! We loved having it as a little retreat for the week. Thanks so much!!

Modern, comfy studio, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I was visiting my daughter in Boulder and spent three nights in this comfy studio. The bed was very comfortable and the studio was quiet and private, even though it is attached to the main house. I appreciated all the windows, which made for great ventilation and breezes. I didn't use the kitchen area, which is small and cute, except the small refrigerator and coffeemaker, both of which were more than adequate. The bathroom was very nice, good shower, nice towels. The surrounding neighborhood is eclectic and lovely, close to many amenities and a short drive to the Hill and Pearl Street.

I could also live here; true gem!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I won't hesitate to stay here again! The studio is clean, layout perfect, and artwork inspiring. We had everything we needed for a few meals at home. Boulder is a great city for anyone wanting to travel low waste, and we appreciate the thoughtfulness put into this space. Thank you for the wonderful stay, Jen and Derek!

Quiet clean studio room

  • 5 of 5

Derek and Jen were great hosts. We arrived late and Derek left the studio (over the garage with separate outside entrance) open for us. The room was clean and quiet. We were visiting family a short walking distance away. We left early and came back late each day so didn't hang out there. The space is a long rectangle shape with bathroom off of one edge. It's well laid out and includes a small table/chairs for eating and a separate table with a large work surface. There is a closet and dresser if you want to unpack. I didn't do that and a luggage rack would be a nice addition to the closet so suitcases don't need to be in a corner on the floor. The place otherwise had everything we needed. There are also plenty of screened windows that open. Derek and Jen left useful into about the place including about the construction of the house (built with insulated structural panels) which we found very interesting. Would definitely stay there again!!
