About the property

Private, stand-alone studio apartment with full private bathroom

The Aerie is a private, stand-alone studio apartment with separate full bathroom (with shower) beneath the trees in a quiet residential neighborhood on two acres of forested land near Barker Reservoir. Our house is also located on the property. There is a private walkway with stairs leading to the entrance of The Aerie, and the cozy space features a full kitchen with a fridge, stove, convection oven, microwave, table and two chairs. The apartment also features beamed ceilings, a skylight, and a main area with a queen-size bed, recliner sofa, easy chair and wardrobe. The kitchen is equipped with dinnerware, glasses, mugs, silverware, coffee press, coffee maker, electric kettle and pots and pans.

There is WiFi throughout, a flatscreen television with cable, DVD player and selection of games. The main space has a stone-surround gas fireplace and a chandelier. The bathroom features a walk-in shower and fluffy towels. Body care amenities include soap and shampoo. Floors throughout are stone and ceramic tile. We welcome pets provided they are kept on a leash when outdoors, and are happy to provide a pet bed and bowls for food and water. Pets must be supervised and contained at all times: we are surrounded by forest, and are regularly visited by fox, bears, moose, raccoons, coyotes and other wildlife that may present a danger to your pet.

The fridge is stocked with bottled water, and we supply coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, and a selection of cooking spices.

Due to the series of stairs leading to this apartment, it is not handicap-accessible. The road leading to the Aerie has a 10% incline. During heavy snow, an all-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle is necessary; carrying snow chains is generally advised when driving in the mountains during snow months. Please contact us for updates on weather conditions. If you’re using public transportation, the RTD bus stop is just a mile from the property, but parts of the road are dirt and are not suitable for rolling luggage. The center of Nederland is within easy walking distance (.09 miles). The RTD bus line connects directly to Boulder, where additional RTD service to and from Denver International Airport and downtown Denver is also available.

Accommodates: Two adults and pets

Cute cabin in Ned

Although the mattress should be replaced it was uncomfortable to sleep in.

Owner's Response: Hi: Thanks for staying at the Aerie, we are sorry you found the mattress not to your liking and wish you had mentioned it while you were here. The mattress is less than a year old, but we will certainly take a close look at replacing. Thanks again for staying with us.

The perfect retreat....

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughter and I loved the cozy, warm vibe of the Aerie! The pictures don't capture the full ambience of the space. We loved relaxing inside after 2 days of great skiing at Eldora. The peace and solitude was wonderful. The cabin had everything we needed, plus a wonderful selection of games, books, and magazines. We would definitely come back! Thank you!

Quiet and Comfortable place for vacation! Pet friendly+++!

  • 5 of 5

The place is excellent to spend either vacation or weekend. Located on hills in Nederland, and in walking proximity to the center of the town. Area is offering multiple choices for entertainment, ski at the Eldora, hiking in the Roosevelt National, dining and beer tasting in the Ned.

The cabin itself is very clean, comfortable and warm. It has everything you need! Perfect place for a couple to stay. Access is simple with reserved parking. The owners are always responsive and helpful.

We spent there a week from Christmas till New Year and enjoyed every minute!!!

Nicely appointed cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Think smallish but nicely appointed cabin with all you need to weather a snow storm in comfort! Owners were right next door but this proved to not be a issue. We were taken care of but without intrusion. Which for us was the perfect option.

Cozy, quiet and all you need!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect as our base camp for exploring Nederland, hiking and fly fishing in the National Forest.

James was great to work with and gave us all the space we needed while remaining available should something come up.

The Aerie is quiet and cozy. The shower, fridge and gas fireplace were perfect after a day on the stream and before hitting Ned for dinner.

We will be back!

Thank you very much.

Great location walking distance to trails and town

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for someone who wants easy access to both town and trails. We stayed here with our two dogs and it was perfect for our needs - a quick walk to the trail system in one direction and to town in the other. The walk to town is downhill towards town and uphill back but only a mile so completely doable and enjoyable especially if you want to walk you pets. Hosts were very responsive and extremely helpful. In fact we loved it so much we have already booked our next stay here. Definitely recommend it!
