Thank you very much for allowing my family into your home. The home and neighborhood are beautiful, and certainly met all our needs. (Len was also a wonderful man, as you said he would be).

Best Thanksgiving Trip Ever

  • 5 of 5

The biggest challenge my three sisters and I faced when planning a Thanksgiving reunion was to find a large home in Boulder that was conveniently located to my niece's house and close enough to town that we could go out no matter what the weather. Kurt and Laura's beautiful home was the perfect solution! With nine people staying there, we never felt overly crowded. The inviting living room with fireplace was the best place to hang out at night to laugh, annoy each other and share family memories. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood down the street from Chautauqua Park which boasts phenomenal hiking trails to spectacular vistas of the Boulder area. Our stay exceeded our expectations. We all would love to stay there again at a future date. All my sisters agreed "I did good" finding this property!

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We came to Boulder to get married - up in the mountains and this was the perfect spot for our family of 7 to stay. It was super convenient to walking the trails at Chautauqua and had all the amenities and space that we needed to connect but also have our own space.

Kurt and Laura are most gracious and super welcoming. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Perfect Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a friends wedding and this beautiful home was the perfect location for our stay! It has plenty of space to gather both inside and out with gorgeous views from the patio. This home is very unique in design and decor, very clean and comfortable . The outdoor area is well taken care of with a peaceful, large patio to enjoy the Colorado fresh air! The kitchen was fully stocked if you plan on making any meals while you're here. The pictures of the home are very accurate but the rooms are larger than they appear. The location of the home is in a beautiful neighborhood with hiking trails just a few short blocks away. The owners are very accommodating and responsive. You can tell they aim to please and we are so grateful! Don't forget to check out the costume trunk, that was the BEST! I couldn't have asked for a better home or overall experience in Boulder and we are looking forward to coming back again soon! We will recommend this home to anyone staying in Boulder. Thanks to the owners for sharing your home with us!!

Couldn’t Ask for More

  • 5 of 5

We rented Kurt and Laura’s house for a niece’s wedding in Boulder. Three couples/two singles in our nuclear family—bedrooms for all. We hosted a dinner for other out of town family the night before the wedding…an easy assignment in the fully equipped kitchen. The weather cooperated and most of the family mingled on the spacious flagstone patio and deck. The gas fireplace in the living room warmed up the atmosphere when the evening chill set in. University Hill is a half mile walk; the Pearl Street shopping area is a mile and a half. For the outdoors inclined, the house is a five minute walk to the Chautauqua trailhead with access to miles of hiking. (Maps and good route recommendations available at the Ranger Cottage.) For those looking for an athletic challenge, the house is a 4.5 mile run—or bike—up Flagstaff Road to Flagstaff Summit. Elevation gain: 2,000 ft. Unmatched vista when you get to the flagpole and amphitheater. Kurt was responsive by email from our initial inquiry through our return home. Always great to get the family together for a wedding. Kurt and Laura’s house was a perfect place to do so.
