About the Property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft w 3 queen beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11), Great Views

The unique aspect of this chalet style mountain home is its beautiful serene and scenic location. The choice is yours whether you prefer to simply relax without a care in the natural quietude under the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains, or engage in the numerous mountain activities at your doorstep. The right combination of both is waiting for you.

Sip your favorite refreshment in the large hot tub, while enjoying the mountain views all around you. A baby grand, drums and guitar are included for the musically inclined. A large fireplace will keep you toasty in the winter, and gentle mountain breezes will keep you comfortable in the summer. There is no need for superficial air conditioning since mother nature provides it all.

While the city of Boulder is accessible in twenty minutes for the normal amenities such as dining, theater, music, sightseeing, and shopping, - - - the town of Nederland is only ten minutes away for satisfying basic needs. Sugarloaf Mountain Rd, which will bring you to the house, is maintained year round for safe access and driving. (By the way, the route that Mapquest type programs usually designates for you is actually twice as long as the local route.) Directions for the local route are included in the Registration materials you will receive.

Ski resorts are within ten to ninety minutes away. Mountain Lakes, fishing, hunting and camping are just minutes away. Be it summer or winter activities, this site offers it all.

Small special occasion 'events' like birthday parties, showers, weddings may be held here with the owners approval only. Contact owner for rates and info.

  • A carpeted tree house is available for the young and/or young at heart, A very nice caretaker is on the premises one or two weekdays in a separate unit on the lower level of the building and is available to help you with any house emergencies which may arise. He is totally respectful of your presence and is unobtrusive. The house is independent of everything except electricity. Therefore, if anything should go awry it is important in the owner's absence to have a caretaker to resolve the problem. If for any reason he is not immediately available, you can reach the owner by phone who will then arrange for alternative assistance. Although a four wheel drive is not a requirement it is recommended that you have one during the winter months. Although the main road is a school bus route and is therefore always maintained, a four wheel drive will take the worry out of handling the snow. ...moreless

Car: Necessary

Cross Country skiing and Snow-shoe hiking can be done out of the house on National Forest Land where there are old mining and logging roads which provide a good path for these activities. A trip down Boulder Canyon is a worthwhile and scenic ride. There are brooks, rivers and lakes in the area. Rocky Mountain National Park is nearby as are old mining and gambling towns like Central City and Blackhawk. Hiking will provide beautiful views of the Continental Divide and Rock Mountians.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: A Colorado native, I've lived in all parts of the state. I know what I love about Colorado and I spent years searching for the location that has it all. Well, when I found this home, I spent one hour without saying a word looking it over, then when the owner said 'What do you think?', I said 'Sold.' And I've been sold on it ever since. I actually get excited with the thought of vacation renters enjoying my place. (No, I do not stay here when it is rented to you.) I love sharing the specialness of my home. Everything special about Colorado is within immediate reach from this location. The dramatic and rugged wilderness of the Continental Divide, to the cultured sophisticated amenities of the City of Boulder. Anything you're in the mood for is only minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder, CO, USA:
As I said in my profile, I bought this home because in itself and in its surroundings, it constitutes the best of Colorado. This is my home and not merely a 'rental', but of course I do not stay here when I rent it out to you..

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
In the summer I love the balmy gentle warm breezes so much that I never want to go to bed. In the winter the snow is beautiful and the occasional moose and elk herd that surrounds the house is a real treat to see.
