The house was cozy and wonderful. Steps were not a problem

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We walked to Pearl Street every morning for coffee. There is a coffee pot in the kitchen but the walk was breath taking. The views were unbelievable. We came home one night to a group of mule deer by the house. A fabulous experience. We plan to rent this place again on our next trip to Colorado.

What a wonderful view. Even had a great night's sleep on the sofa bed.

Those 64 stair steps got me in shape, though. Very roomy and clean. Would stay here again.

Overall good stay but be aware of traffic, thus road noise, and 60 + steps from road to door.

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was very clean. Bed in master just OK. Great view. Responsive owner. Convenient to town and Boulder Creek Trail.

Great Place!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 2-year old son, dog, and I stayed here and had an excellent time. Barry (the owner) was great. The location was perfect and the view was amazing. The clime up to the cabin was tough with luggage and toddler and there was nowhere for my dog to do his business without risking falling down the mountain side, but I knew all of this going in so I can't hold that against the property. However, I did have to dock it one star because the bed, couch, and living room chair were all very uncomfortable and, being prone to back problems, that was an major issue for me. Aside from that, this property was excellent; very clean and had everything we needed.
