About the property

Renovated downtown studio with mountain views and patio

Visit beautiful Boulder, Colorado and stay in the best spot in town, Boulder’s iconic “Morrison House” property. This luxurious carriage house studio is located 1 block from Pearl Street Mall, has mountain views, and is fully furnished with a gourmet kitchen and new appliances.

Enjoy your vacation in a fully renovated piece of Boulder’s history in the Mapleton neighborhood! This carriage house studio belongs to the Morrison House built in 1891, which is part of Boulder’s Historic Walking Tour and was the crown jewel of Boulder’s “Historic Homes for the Holidays” event.

This light-filled loft comes with an off-street parking space, your own private back yard with BBQ grill and access to all Boulder has to offer. Walk to Pearl Street shops and events, the farmers market, or enjoy CU graduation week in the heart of Boulder. We are also conveniently located across the street from Boulder’s new “eTown Hall” performance space, aired weekly on National Public Radio (NPR).

To make your stay more comfortable we provide you with fresh linens & towels, additional housekeeping upon request and tons of info about Boulder’s sightseeing spots, hidden gems, and outdoor activities.

In walking distance to public transportation to Denver and Eldora Ski Resort make this a perfect no-car vacation spot. You can rent a bike down the street and explore Boulder and all it has to offer.

About Chris Scordo

After many trips to this wonderful town, our family was lucky enough to move to Boulder in 2011, and we fell in love with the Morrison House the second we saw it. In 2012 we purchased the property with its newly built carriage house studio, and this is where we raise our small family, enjoying everything Boulder has to offer! Chris owns a training and publishing business in Boulder, and Victoria is a licensed architect.

Chris Scordo purchased this studio in 2012

Why Chris Scordo chose Boulder

This red brick and shingled house was built around 1891 by Murdoch 'Doc' Morrison, a blacksmith, wagon maker and Boulder alderman. In 2009, the property was completely renovated and expanded, and we had a chance to rent it in 2011. That is when we fell in love with the house and took the opportunity to make it (and Boulder) our home!

Great place with a greater owner.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 5 weeks. The location is one of the highlights, the apartment is less than two blocks from Pearl Street and all the amenities that one would need for a nice get away. Restaurants, shops and public transportation are within walking distance. We will definitely stay at the Carriage House again!! Thank you to Chris and family for an outstanding visit and all you did to make us feel at home.

We had a great time staying in the carriage house. The location was amazing, one block to Pearl! The studio layout was perfect for my wife and me.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is absolutely lovely. It is within walking distance to everything in downtown Boulder. The neighborhood is surprisingly quiet and the bed is fabulous - a wonderful combination for a relaxing stay.

Probably not the best choice for children or elderly as the stairs are steep. A perfect spot for couples or singles. Wish I could have stayed much longer!

Clean, comfy and cozy home with the perfect location to walk to everything you need on Pearl St.

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I were looking for a long weekend getaway and settled on Boulder. The Carriage House provided everything we could possibly need for our stay. It was spotless, extremely charming and the perfect amount of space for the two of us. The location can't be beat either, being only 1 block off Pearl St. and around the corner from several restaurants, bars and cafes. If we make another trip out to Boulder, we will definitely be staying here again. Thank you Chris and Victoria for creating such a warm, welcoming home!

The Carriage House was warm, chic and inviting! And everything is in walking distance - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Carriage House. It was clean, nicely decorated and surprisingly quiet considering it was a stone's throw from Pearl Street Mall. We loved being able to walk everywhere - cup of coffee in the morning, lunch and drinks and entertainment at night. Also great having a designated parking spot for the times we did drive to enjoy all the beauty of Boulder and beyond. We would definitely recommend this property for any couple looking to stay in the area.
