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."

Clean and comfortable

Derek, Jen, and Penny made us feel very welcome. The Lab House is clean, comfortable, and much nicer than staying in a hotel.

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!
