Our Canyon Retreat on Boulder Creek is located at the western edge of Boulder, 5 minutes from Pearl Street Mall and the University of Colorado, surrounded by Open Space. The Studio has its own private entrance through an arbor from the ample parking area. And it's just 30 minutes from Eldora Mountain Ski Resort!
**Note, the price listed by VRBO is for ONE bedroom. The second upstairs bedroom can be rented, if needed, by letting the owner know when emailing. The additional fee varies by season and length of stay.
The first floor has a small kitchen, bathroom with shower, dining area and living room. There are two pull-out sofa beds for 2-4 extra guests. The entertainment center has a Blueray DVD player, ROKU for access to Netflix, or Amazon for movies, TV series, as well as Pandora for your choice in music. There is also high-speed wireless internet access for your laptops. French doors open on to your large private deck overlooking the creek, with tables, chairs and a gas barbecue.
On the second floor a wall of glass affords a fabulous view of the creek and canyon walls. There is a queen bed and also a futon -- perfect for children who might not want to stay down stairs. There is also a second bathroom with shower and a large closet.
We have added an optional second 'attic' bedroom, with 3 skylights, adjacent to the upstairs bedroom. It is optional and is renting for an additional $75-100 a night depending on the season. It has a queen bed and a sectional. Sleeps 2 - 4. Please arrange this additional rental through the owner. Or if you use 'Book It Now,' send your reservation through with one bedroom and we will upgrade it to 2 and send back to you for payment.
The large deck is fenced and gated for your dogs. There is a mulched 'potty place' and water bowls just for them. For more exercise, you can take them for a Bike Path walk or hike the trails.
The Boulder Bike Path just beyond your front door offers miles of trails for biking and running (3 bikes, helmets and locks are available for your use), Settlers' Park, Flagstaff Mountain and Chautauqua trailheads are all near, and Boulder Canyon Drive leads to the Indian Peaks Wilderness, Eldora Mountain Ski Resort and Rocky Mountain National Park.
And for the fishermen, there is trout fishing from the deck or walk over the bridge and fish trout from Boulder Creek!!
Or -- just relax on the deck with a glass of wine and watch the creek flow by -- with an occasional kayak in Spring. If you are a winter visitor, it is a bit like being in an ice castle, with the creek running between small ice cliffs. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing opportunities are close by, and you are only about 19 miles from Eldora Mountain -- home of the CU National Championship ski team.
We look forward to sharing this truly unique setting with you!
Keywords: Two-story artist's retreat with breathtaking views, right on Boulder Creek yet just steps from the Bike Path. Less than a mile to Pearl Street's restaurants and shops, you'll feel invitingly secluded, surrounded by water and Boulder Canyon's pine-covered mountains. And just 30 minutes to Eldora Ski Resort!
Our family of 6 began in Pasadena CA but careers in marketing and arts management took us to Old Greenwich CT and NYC. For college, two of our children, Craig and Katie chose CU. We all fell in love with Boulder! While visiting them one weekend, Charlie and I took our dogs for a walk up the Bike Path and paused on the old creek bridge. There we saw an old house on a pond, surrounded by water and, lo and behold, a 'for sale' sign! And, of course we bought it right then and there! Architectural design had been an avocation of ours for many years, so as soon as possible, NYC was in our rear view mirror and Tucker Design Associates, as well as Tucker Walker Group Real Estate were born in Boulder! Our children are grown now and have families of their own, so we don't need the Studio space year around and are very happy to share it with you!
Dorothy Tucker purchased this guest house in 1990
The property feels remote, far from civilization - surrounded by water, pines, cottonwoods and ever-changing patterns of light on the canyon walls, yet it is five minutes from shopping, world class restaurants, the CU campus, Chautauqua concerts in the summer and skiing Eldora in the Winter!
Thank you for working with us! Your studio is even better than we thought. The pictures online didn't do it justice :) if we are in Boudler again we will definitely consider another shoot there or staying the night. You may have an untapped market for photographers like us. The lighting and modern decor is beautiful. I wish we could have shot in every room! We'll send some pics soon. Your studio is be perfect for families, bridal boudoir, babies, and outdoors. Thank you again!
Let me start by saying that I have already had four different friends who have asked for information on this property after seeing our pictures. So, if you are thinking of renting, do it quickly because it is in high demand! This is an amazing property in the best location you could find. We stayed here with our family over Spring Break, with four kids of all different ages. Everyone was giddy with excitement and wonder the entire trip. There was so much to do, from fishing right off the beach, to walking to Pearl Street to shop and eat. The walk along the bike path was beautiful and easy, with so much to look at along the way. We felt like we had the best of both worlds staying at this property. Beautiful weather in which to enjoy the town, and close proximity to ski resorts. We went to Eldora one day and enjoyed a wonderful day of skiing. We also spent a day at Rocky Mountain National Park, where the kids were able to go sledding. This was one of their favorite activities! We could not believe how friendly everyone in Boulder was! We are from the south, and couldn't help but be amazed at the generosity and kindness of everyone we encountered. Boulder has so many INCREDIBLE restaurants, bars, and shops. It truly is the coolest town. The owners were very accommodating and perfect hosts. When not out and about, we loved relaxing in the studio and on the deck. We really appreciated the Keurig, stocked with different coffee and teas. The way the studio is decorated reminds you of a mountain spa. So relaxing! This place is a little slice of heaven and made us fall in love with Boulder. We will definitely be back!
We had such a wonderful stay! The location is fantastic - we took the walking/bike path just outside the studio to and from Pearl Street...about a 30 min walk. The studio itself is wonderful - cozy downstairs and the well-stocked Keurig was appreciated. The beds were comfortable and everything was neat and clean. We loved sitting in the Adirondack chairs by the creek - very relaxing! We are going to bookmark this place to hopefully return to in the future!
Special memories. Quite a gem. Beautifully maintained. Very functional and cozy.
This place is exactly what we needed. From the amazing view out of the windows to the sound of water rushing by, I can't imagine a more perfect place in Boulder.
Had a great stay at the "Studio". Beautiful place, lots of great little amenities (great Tea selection, very nice bedding and blankets, nice sized kitchen with quality cook ware to make a meal). Overall my kids loved the Studio, we all loved the sound of boulder creek at night, and it was very convenient to downtown Boulder and a short drive to Eldora for skiing. Met all my expectations and exceeded them. The owner was very nice as well.
The Artist's Retreat was everything we expected from the description, but so much more. Snow was falling as we arrived, and it looked like a postcard. The studio was immaculate and beautifully decorated. We opted to pay a little extra for the second bedroom upstairs. We had two couples, and one couple could sleep on the sofa bed downstairs, but the second bedroom is very nice--complete with skylights for stargazing. The beds were quite comfortable, although in a perfect world, we would prefer king size beds. There was plenty of extra bedding if you had children or additional guests who needed to use the sofas or futon. The kitchen was small, but we didn't do any cooking, so it was fine for us. Kuerig cups were provided, and we brought some refrigerated items for breakfast/snacks, so we did use the fridge. Our weather was not suited for outdoor lounging, but the deck would be fantastic in warmer weather. We would love to come back and enjoy the creek, pond, fire pit and bike trail. The only thing I can possibly think of to suggest would be a few more games for adults and/or older children (Trivial Pursuit, Scattergories, Boggle, etc.). The hosts were welcoming, but gave us our privacy. Top Notch!
Eldora Mountain Ski Resort is just 30 minutes west of the Boulder Creek Studio! And Boulder Reservoir just 15 minutes north!
