About the property

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!

Great Carriage House in Super Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay for the week we spent visiting family in Longmont. The carriage house was everything we could need for a very comfortable stay. Located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood with a short walk to a great little breakfast diner. It has easy access to everything the Front Range has to offer. We must give thanks to Linda and Chad for having such a gem for travelers to enjoy.

Cute, cozy just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were out for a friend's wedding and to see some sights. The location was good for all of our needs. It was big enough for us to be comfortable and relaxed. It was nice to be able to make breakfast in the morning since we were spending so many evenings eating out. The washer and dryer were a nice bonus -- not so much laundry to do when we got home. The neighborhood was friendly and safe. Even the BBQ joint on the corner was pretty good and convenient.

Cozy, clean, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time trying VRBO and I can only hope that every experience will be this amazing! Linda and Chad’s cottage house had everything we needed for our hiking vacation. We loved having a kitchen, washer & dryer and privacy. I was unsure how this experience would be at first, I loved that we had our own space and an entrance separate from the main house, I thought this might be a shared space but it’s totally private. The location was exceptional for us, close to Fort Collins, Denver, Estes Park and many beautiful hikes. I immediately fell in love with the unique and quiet neighborhood, it was so nice to walk around with our dog and walk to breakfast in the morning. The houses in the neighborhood are beautfuil! There are trees along all the sidewalks so it was always nice and shady. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed relaxing in the living room after long hikes. I would recommend this cottage house to any couple or friends traveling together who want to experience a home away from home! It was so much better than a hotel. We would love to stay here again. Thanks for everything Linda & Chad!

Perfect place for a weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding nearby and could not have been more impressed with The Carriage House and the gorgeous neighborhood. The space was beautifully designed, perfectly clean and stocked with all of the amenities we could have needed. We enjoyed walking to the wonderful restaurants nearby and relaxing in the hammocks in the park around the corner.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!
