Come be our guests in our cozy carriage house in Longmont's eclectic and funky Prospect Newtown. Dwell Magazine called Prospect "America's Coolest Neigborhood." We couldn't agree more!
The tree-lined streets are filled with interesting architecture, funky colors and wonderful people. We have parks with hammocks, a lovely community pool, restaurants, bars, art galleries, antiques, boutiques, hair salons, a multitude of ways to exercise, live summer concerts with food trucks and so much more all just a short walk from the front door. And Denver, Boulder, Estes Park and Colorado skiing are just a short drive away.
Our carriage house is designed and equipped to be your home away from home. With comfortable furnishings, luxury bedding, a well-appointed kitchen, a spacious desk, a large-screen tv, you will have everything you need to work, play and relax. This comfortable, quiet and sophisticated space has been designed above our detached garage with no shared walls and overlooking a private park. It is accessed by a single flight of interior stairs. A private parking space is provided steps from the front door. We humbly request that you leave your large pets at home. However, small, furry family members will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

About Linda Nelson
Chad and I have spent the last 26 years working together, the last 24 years married to one another, and the last 17 years as business partners. We have raised 2 amazing kids--a son and a daughter--who are both now students at the University of Colorado. As we face an empty house, our wanderlust is reawakening. Even though we live at the foot of the Rocky Mountains--one of the most beautiful places on Earth--we are excited to begin bouncing around the world. We hate to travel like tourists! We want to be where the locals live, eat and play. We are considerate guests (our mothers both taught us to leave a place better than you found it) and attentive hosts. While we like to travel with a plan, it is held with loose hands to make room for unexpected discoveries. We don't like to pack too many places into any one trip because we like to linger. We love meeting new people--people who may not share our views (but will be respectful of them) or our experiences--because nothing can beat a slow delicious dinner with good wine and intelligent conversation!
Linda Nelson purchased this Guest House in 2012
Why Linda Nelson chose Longmont
Chad is a Boulder native. Linda grew up outside of Chicago but claimed Colorado as her future home at the age of 7. After 10 years of living in Phoenix, we joyfully returned to the shadows of the Rocky Mountains and have been in living in Longmont since 1999. In 2012 we began looking for a house that could accommodate large crowds because we love filling our home with people. This amazing neighborhoods and our much-loved home fit the bill. The carriage house was the cherry on top! Prospect is absolutely the most amazing place to live--filled with diverse people, incredible architecture and plenty of quirky charm. We have designed and appointed our carriage house to be a welcoming and inviting place for guests both new and old.
What makes this Guest House unique
There are few places in the world where you can find urban sophistication and amenities backing up to horse pastures and with unadulterated views of some of the most breathtaking mountain views in the world. Prospect is such a place!

Everything we needed. Close to family. Clean modern and easy access to everything we needed
The space is very modern with a comfy bed. The kitchen was stocked very well. I would recommend it for sure, but if you have a pet the non refundable $125 pet fee seemed a bit high on top of a cleaning fee.
Excellent Carriage House - Longmont, CO.
This is the second time we stayed at this rental. It was excellent. They provide all the
necessary amenities, the decor is gorgeous.The neighborhood has restaurants,
shops and perfect environment for walks. The owners are helpful and accessible.
We would return again.
Thank you, Sandra, for your kind words. We loved having you and look forward to your next visit!
Another Great Stay
My husband and I just spent a month at Linda and Chad's carriage house to be near our son and his young family. The location is great and Prospect Town is an easy place to walk our dog. My husband loves to cook and Linda has gone out of her way to outfit the kitchen with everything a cook needs. Also, the bed is super comfortable and the apartment is very clean. We will definitely be back. Thanks Linda and Chad.
First time for us for vrbo and we loved our vacation! Looking forward to returning soon!
Everything was perfect....we were totally comfortable and relaxed and ready to start the new year!
Another Wonderful Stay
Thanks Linda for allowing us to make a last minute reservation at your carriage house so we could meet our newborn grandson. We once again enjoyed the convenient location, the comfortable furnishings and the well appointed kitchen. You make our visits to Longmont so easy.
Thanks for your kind words! I am so happy we could be a part of your introduction to your new grandson! We always love having you and look forward to your next stay!
