Overview

About the property

Guest Suite, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (sleeps 2-4)

This newly built 1 bedroom guest suite is ideal for those looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful, secluded mountain setting, but yet only 10 minutes from downtown Boulder.

Relax and enjoy the wonderful beauty, sights and sounds on your own private patio. The sunrises are gorgeous. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, listen to the birds chirping and watch the deer graze while you’re sipping a fresh cup of coffee in the morning or enjoying a cocktail in the evening.

We built our dream home in 2008 and finished our guest suite in late 2012 with all new furnishings. Special attention to details was our priority. You can expect top notch accommodations and tastefully decorated rooms. The completely private guest suite is located on the ground floor which is separate from our living area located on the second floor. You will experience complete comfort and convenience with the following features:

Whatever your desires, as your personal getaway guide; we will plan and develop together your perfect getaway.

Some ideas to get you started…

Fun and Relaxation

I am very knowledgeable about what’s going on in Boulder and can make endless suggestions for outings in the area. I can provide restaurant recommendations and reservations. I can assist you with all local activities and upcoming events from the Boulder’s Farmer’s Market to the Film Festival to enjoying the local music and Street Performers on Pearl Street Mall. I can get you off in the right direction for sightseeing to Rocky Mountain National Park, Red Rocks amphitheater... Then renew and re-energize with a therapeutic massage, facial, manicure/pedicure or any other soothing treatment. Please visit bouldercoloradousa for a multitude of things to do in Boulder. Then afterwards let me assist you in selecting the best choices for you and help work out the logistics. Your stay with us will include a free membership at our health club, Oneboulderfitness.

Fitness Retreat

Although I can provide assistance for numerous activities Boulder has to offer, I do specialize in a few areas. I was a professional athlete in my earlier years and I have been a personal trainer and health club owner for over 30 years. Fitness is my passion. Your stay with us will include a free membership at our health club, Oneboulderfitness. If you need help getting started in a health and wellness program or would like to upgrade your current program, I would be excited to share my knowledge and experience. My expertise and experience is in functional fitness, core conditioning, strength training and nutrition/weight loss. Further, I have tremendous experience with cardiovascular conditioning as I trained my wife who was a professional mountain bike racer for several years. I can set you up with whatever program suits your needs whether you’re a first time fitness enthusiast or a seasoned athlete.

Outdoor Activities

If you’re looking to enjoy the natural wonders of Colorful Colorado, we can recommend the right trail for your fitness level. My wife was a professional mountain bike racer for nine years. We can provide maps to all of the local hikes, mountain biking, road riding, downhill, cross county and backcountry skiing, snowshoeing... If you need a bike, I will set you up with the right bike. If you need skis, snowshoes, I can do that. I can provide day packs and coolers and if you want I can even include the food and drinks.

As all of these additional services will be custom fit to your needs, pricing will be determined based on your choices.

About Glen Marshman

Health and fitness is a way of life for my wife and me. We are extremely fortunate to have found the perfect location for our lifestyle as we can escape each evening and every weekend to the simple pleasures and beauty of the outdoors. And yet we’re able to enjoy all the wonderful city life activities as it is so conveniently accessible. We think you too will find the best of both worlds as well on your stay with us.

We have 2 adorable dogs, Guinness and Stout, who will insist on greeting you when you first arrive as any gracious host would do. They understand they are not allowed in your guest area, but please keep in mind they are dogs who will make their presence known at times.

Perfect mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - the house was perfect, from the convenient location to downtown Boulder, to the breathtaking scenery and thoughtful accommodations. Glen and Rene are warm and welcoming, and just spectacular hosts! We've already recommended to everyone we know and would definitely stay here again!

Gorgeous, super-clean, perfect location for nature lovers.

  • 5 of 5

Glen and Rene couldn't have been more communicative and hospitable. The apartment is really nicely appointed and is just a few minutes from the town but in a stunning mountain location. The outside patio is really lovely. I will definitely stay there again.

Great location, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and the location was great for what we were looking for. Out of the city and quiet, but still 10-15 mins to get into the heart of Boulder. Hosts were helpful and suite was clean. Suite has everything we needed. We would highly recommend staying at this property if you are looking for some peace and quiet and/or easy travel into the city. We took a day trip to Denver as well as Rocky Mtn National Park. Easy access to both! Our hosts provided great restaurant recommendations and knew the town very well.

Thank you for allowing us to stay!

Stay in the mountains, but close to downtown and nearby destinations.

  • 5 of 5

Glen and Rene are wonderful hosts who are willing to give advice or recommendations for the Boulder area! The studio is a short ride to the downtown Boulder, yet you are in the mountains!! It is beautiful, very clean, and stocked with plenty of extra pillows, blankets, and towels. The kitchenette is all you really need since there are so many great restaurants on Pearl St. you’ll want to try!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Glen’s place to friends and family!

Clean and luxurious suite

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for three nights. Glen was very friendly and helpful giving us lots of suggestions to do and to dine in Boulder. The guest unit is on the first floor, very private from upstairs where the owners live. There is a quiet bedroom separate from a living room with great windows and a nice-sized bathroom. It was very comfortable for two people. Each room was very clean! The bed was also very comfortable for us. The only thing I would mention is that there was a constant noise from an air-handling unit (?), and we needed to close the bedroom door when we sleep. It became a white noise towards the end of our stay though. I will stay there again!
