Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the cabin in the mountains. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable! The views from the outside deck are so beautiful and hearing the rushing water from across the street from Boulder Creek is so relaxing! I totally recommend this cozy place and the owner responds quickly to any questions you may have. It is close to everything but you still feel like you are secluded from the town.

Excellent cabin, really close to Pearl St. Mall and very quiet at night! Super cozy

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place, we enjoyed our time here, the cabin offers pretty much anything you might need. You can walk downtown if you feel like it, it's pretty close. We loved it!

Not quite what we expected

  • 4 of 5

There were things that were great about the place like it seemed pretty clean, great location to Boulder, and Barry was great. I'll give it four stars for that reason but the quality control made it hard to not give it only three.

After reading so many amazing reviews I just had higher expectations then some of the small issues we found. Examples: patio door screen door wasn't attached but just laying on deck, patio door handles loose, multiple window latches broken and just laying next to window, bathroom sink would barely drain, dishwasher was completely full with previous guests' dishes, stairs to house need some love & repair, and the front door could be difficult to shut/lock at times as well.

It's a long list of nothing all that major. Our stay was fine but just surprised to find some of those issues.

We were primarily there to enjoy the outdoors and the place was clean and adequate enough. The location is definitely the main appeal to this location. The house is right across from Boulder Creek and there was a trail that takes you all the way into town. Be aware though that you cross a very busy road to get to creek/trail.

The one time we had to contact Barry he was great. He was very polite and looked to accommodate us.

Worked out perfectly for us.

  • 5 of 5

The house was fine, clean and comfortable and everything in good working order. A long staircase from the street up to the house, so if you have heavy bags that could be an issue, but it was fine for us. Very close to downtown Boulder, and the Boulder Creek trail is right across the street.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A little piece of heaven! My two daughters a I stayed for three nights and it couldn’t have been better. Every morning and every evening g there was a small herd of mule deer right outside our deck feeding and just hanging out! All comforts of home were provided, including WiFi. We walked to Pearl Street for our evening festivities, super fun and easy. Woke up every morning to magnificent views! Barry made sure we didn’t lack for anything, super attentive! Clean, convenient, comfortable! We will definitely be back!
