About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This cozy, serenely restful property dates back to 1898 and still maintains the historic charm of the original home. High ceilings, hardwood floors, rooms with Victorian trim, all decorated in a warm and welcoming decor bring you back to simpler, more relaxed times. There is an eat-in kitchen, cozy living room, bathroom, and 2 bedrooms. 2 outdoor porches are delightful for sitting out in our gorgeous Colorado weather. One of the bedrooms has a Dutch door that leads to a side porch.

You can sleep with the top of the door open and enjoy the air! There is an outdoor patio with table and chairs for outdoor dining in a private garden.

The house is on a very quiet residential street just a few blocks walk to beautiful Boulder creek, hiking trails in the foothills, historic Chautauqua Park, shopping, eating and people watching on the Pearl Street Mall, the University campus, Boulder's amazing Farmer's Market and Alfalfa's organic grocery store. The location is ideal for anything you might like to do in the Boulder area. A five minute drive or bike ride and you are in Boulder Canyon heading to the high country.

The property is part of the exquisite Marine Street Sculpture Gardens, created and maintained by local artist extraordinaire Kevan Krasnoff. Sculpture and whimsical art pieces fill the beautiful gardens , right outside the door of this unique vacation rental.

We offer extra special services for guests with quiet dogs. We can arrange for dog-walking and some visiting. We love dogs and appreciate people who wish to travel with theirs!

In-home therapeutic massage available with sufficient notice.

The home has antique pieces and inviting colors to bring out the Victorian charm in this beautiful home.

About Cindy Morris

I have lived in Boulder since 1977. For 10 of those years I owned a flower shop in town. Now I am a writer and I fuss around the yard a lot. Here I am with my Smooth Fox Terriers. I am VERY knowledgeable about what's going in Boulder and can make endless suggestions for fun things for you to do and see around the area.

Cindy Morris purchased this house in 1996

Why Cindy Morris chose Boulder

I love the Boulder area and really enjoy sharing my passion for this area with visitors to the front range of the Rockies. I particularly enjoy this part of town for its beautiful gardens, unique historic architecture, and proximity to everything!

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to University of Colorado, Pearl Street Mall, Boulder creek, historic Chautauqua Park, hiking paths in the foothills, the Farmer's Market, Alfalfa's Organic Market, bike paths

With my familiarity with Boulder I am an excellent resource for visitors to the area and the neighborhood

The neighborhood is a beautiful Historic neighborhood, close to everything that makes Boulder the unique and wonderful place that it is. People who live and visit here just love it!

We are 4/20 friendly and LGBT friendly!

Delightful Home

  • 5 of 5

This sweet Tudor style home painted in cheerful and tasteful colors is situated on a street with friendly but unobtrusive neighbors just around the corner from Boulder Creek and within walking distance to Pearl Street Mall. The home is quiet and quaint with a delightful porch to enjoy the greenery in the yard. Real baby white roses in one of the bedrooms was a nice added touch. Thanks to Cindy for an enjoyable stay over the Labor Day weekend!

Nice little house close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Cindy's house and everything it had to offer in proximity to the trails, Boulder creek and Pearl Street. We were running ahead of schedule and Cindy was happy to allow us early entry.

Charming Home Close to Pearl Street Activities

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this charming property. Pearl Street, the Boulder Library, and Sculpture Park were a short walk away. The two porches and the small bistro table in the side yard allowed many enjoyable spots to entertain family and friends. The kitchen was fully stocked and a joy to use. Cindy was a gracious host and readily available for any concerns or questions that I had throughout my stay. Just as an FYI, this home does not have central a/c. There were many windows and doors throughout the home for good ventilation with ceiling fans in the living room and the main bedroom. I would highly recommend this property to one and all.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my son's graduation at CU and could not have been happier. Cindy was so accommodating to us changing our dates at the last minute and for letting us bring our therapy dog. The house is in a perfect location and we did not have to worry about finding parking for graduation or for going out. (Uber was a quick 5 min just about anywhere). The house had so many nice touches such as detergent, soap, towels, etc. and we didn't have to worry about going to buy anything at the last minute. SO happy we decided to do this instead of getting hotel rooms! I would highly recommend this house!
