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.

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 Lower Arapahoe

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!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Boulder! Cindy's place was well equipped and was in the best location. A 5 - 10 minute walk to Pearl Street, close to the Library (which had great kids programs), super quiet and safe neighborhood, and close to Chautauqua park. Thanks for the best time Cindy! We hope we can make it again next year!

Greatly enjoyed the visit to Cindy Morris's house in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

Terrific hostessing by Cindy Morris....while we changed our dates twice, Cindy always worked with us to accommodate us. We stayed for 1 month in her place in Boulder, which was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Grat location in town, 3 blocks from Boulder Creek, walkable distance to both the farmer's market and the Pearl Street mall, the eating hub of Boulder. Highly recommend Cindy's place to anyone interested in visiting Boulder.

Boulder Victorian beauty

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cindy’s house. It was within walking distance of many things Boulder has to offer; Boulder Creek, Pearl Street Mall, Chautauqua, farmers market, etc. The only issue for us was that, even though the unit is pet-friendly, the yard is only fenced on 3 sides. The yard is to the side of the house, and wide open out to the street. We had to create a temporary fence for our wandering dog. Cindy was great to work with, she lives behind the unit, and was always available for any questions.

Fabulous month in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming and cozy and surrounded by trees. It is perfectly located to walk to parks, the path along Boulder creek and downtown shopping and dining areas plus the Pearl St Pedestrian Mall. The back porch opens onto a small garden and is a lovely place to sit and have a glass of wine. The owner was warm and welcoming.

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!
