Overview

About the property

House with 4 Bedrooms, 3 full Baths, Event/Yoga Room, Steam Shower, Hiking & Mor

Greetings travelers and welcome to Riverside Round House Retreat! Our one of a kind destination, located at the base of the foothills of Boulder Colorado, has just been expanded to include a retreat space (large open 19x25 room) with extra beds & amenities. We can sleep 14 guests (7 beds) and upon request can host small gatherings with additional guests (for an additional party fee), making this the perfect destination for business travelers, large family trips, and any kind of retreat!

The Round House Retreat is the perfect space for those who want the best of both worlds - a quiet and comfortable getaway close to the mountains, yet only a few minutes away from downtown Boulder fun.The house was built in the '70s and has recently not only been fully remodeled and modernized with brand new appliances and amenities, but has also just been expanded to include a huge addition that can comfortably accommodate larger groups of up to 14 overnight guests and small gatherings as well.

Sleeping accommodations include 3 bedrooms inside the Round House (1 King, 1 Queen, and 1 Full size), one large private bedroom in the addition (Queen), and 3 sleeper sofas (2 Queen, 1 King size). The Master bedroom features a shoji or Japanese rice paper sliding door. It also has its own private garden and patio, perfect for a quiet morning coffee. The other bedrooms include closets and individual entrances to maximize privacy for all of our guests.

There are 3 full baths available making it easy for everyone to get adequate bathroom time! The brand new bathroom, just off the additional bedroom, has a new large Japanese style tub that is perfect for a good soak. The Master bathroom is equipped with a fully enclosed steam shower!!!

The upstairs floor plan is bright and open with vaulted ceilings and large windows. The kitchen comes fully equipped with new appliances, amenities, and utensils to accommodate 14 guests and possibly more if necessary for a gathering. A custom built, solid wood, breakfast bar (4 seats) separates the kitchen from the living and dining area. On the other side of the bar is a large solid wood table (8 seats) and dining area which features a gorgeous antique wood burning stove. The living room area has a lounge space with couch and chairs, a flat screen TV with cable access, and several board games and reading materials available.

Step outside onto the wrap around deck overlooking the creek with mountain views. If the weather allows it (315 sunny days a year!), there are outdoor dining options on both the upper deck and lower level flagstone patio.

In the spring, you can enjoy the beautiful mountain flora that grows by the creek, the summer brings on the best for grilling and relaxing on the grapevine shaded balcony, the fall brings about currants and other edible berries along with turning leaves, and the winter snows create a quite, warm and cozy retreat with multiple wood burning stoves.

***On occasion we can accommodate smaller groups of up to 8 in the round house only ($400 weekday, $450 weekend rate).

Please Note: This property was affected by the fall 2013 flooding in Boulder. Though the house itself is fully restored and in perfect working condition with various upgrades, the downstairs and surrounding property will not look exactly as pictured. The interior layout, furniture, materials and flooring are the same or better than what is currently pictured. The exterior is more of a work in progress with vegetation and greenery in the process of being restored - though functional and enjoyable all the same! Feel free to contact us for more details.

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

He had a group of guys for a long weekend of cycling in Boulder. The location was perfect, right at the base of Left Hand Canyon, close to Lyons and Estes and everything in Boulder. The house was great- lots of outdoor deck space. David was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We will return for sure!

LOVED this home!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVED this home!! So cozy with the wood burning stoves, very convenient location close to Boulder, and plenty of space inside and out. The setup of the house was great for entertaining guests. Sarah and David were very helpful and accommodating. They made me feel like a welcomed guest in their home but were not overly intrusive and allowed me to maintain my privacy. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to guests from out of town looking for a nice mountain house to visit.

Wonderful home !!! Lovely gem at the foot of the canyon

  • 5 of 5

David was the best host from the minute we arrived till we left, beautiful home the wood breakfast counter was a exceptional addition to an already fabulous home! The shower was magnificent with a bonus steam feature. Very comfortable beds sheets very nice , towels exceptional. The outside of the home so calming with the stream babbling nearby. The outdoor furniture perfect to chill at. We were lucky enough to hear the local owl. The home is perfect distance from Boulder or Longmont. Thank you again

Wonderful spot for a family reunion close to Boulder

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the round house for a family get together. We loved being close to Boulder and close to the mountains. The space is great for entertaining family and friends. Do be aware that cell service is spotty in this location and the WiFi is so-so.

David and Avalon were extremely responsive when we had questions or issues. Thanks for a great week with family!

Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of friends for a bachelor party weekend in August. We all enjoyed this interesting and secluded house right on the creek. Everything as advertised and the host very helpful and accommodating. Best to have a car here as uber's can be scarce depending on time of day. Only 15 mins to downtown, other needs can be found even closer. Would stay again

We're located 6 miles north of Boulder, in the foothills at Left Hand Canyon. There are many great areas to hike, and small old towns to visit just up Lefthand Canyon Road. One of my personal favorites is hiking from Brainard Lake up to Blue Lake in Roosevelt National Forest.

Another Boulder favorite is the Farmer's market (Sat. 8am-2pm; Wed. 4pm-8pm). Enjoy some delicious food, locally roasted coffee, and great produce.
