About the Property

Large Mountain House with Mountain Views, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

'When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you see out the window are the snow-capped mountains of the Continental Divide.'

Boulder has been named 'the best place to live in the United States' the last 5 years in a row, including the recent Gallup poll.

Only about 10% of the vacation home listings on this VRBO website are located in the mountains. The rest are in or near the city, lacking the privacy and serenity found in the mountains.

During the summer-time, the temperature in the mountains generally is about 15 degrees cooler than in Boulder, so when it is 85 in Boulder . . .

Secluded contemporary 20-year-old cedar private residence located on peaceful-and-quiet Sugarloaf Mountain 14 miles/25 minutes from Boulder.

Spectacular views of the Continental Divide, Indian Wilderness Peaks, and surrounding mountains out of 2-story windows of Great Room.

Walk the private trail out the back door into the Roosevelt National Forest and within minutes enjoy a stadium-sized nature meadow with wild-life wanderers. Several miles of private hiking trails in adjacent forest area; easily walkable. Located 20 miles from Eldora Ski Resort and within driving distance of another 8 ski resorts.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I am a retired judge/attorney who moved to the Rocky Mountains of Boulder in 1994 for semi-retirement with my yellow lab 'Cassidy' after conducting a world-wide search for the ideal place to live. The vast mountain ranges - the great variety of activities -- sports and cultural events of the University of Colorado at Boulder - easily accessible Big City activities of Denver - breath-taking mountain views - friendly people - total privacy in my mountain retreat - these things do not allow me to live anywhere else in this whole wide world.

Why the Owner Chose Boulder, CO, USA:
Warm days and cool nights Best Towns Special Issue of Outside Magazine says it all - 'America's fittest, happiest, healthiest, brainiest, most-educated, least stressed-out town.' Less than an hour's ride to several other small cities rated nationally as 'best places to live in America' - Fort Collins and Louisville. if you visit, you may decide to stay and live your life here, as do many folks.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Total privacy and spectacular mountain/forest views Phone Bill (720-504-6655) to get answers to questions and copy of Guest Information Sheet e-mailed to you.
