About David Cleveland, owner

We've lived in Boulder since 1982. Spruce Roost was our first home. We loved the neighborhood and being so close to downtown, and we'd love to share our experience with you.

David Cleveland, owner purchased this house in 1985

Why David Cleveland, owner chose Boulder

Why did we buy this house? Just take a walk through it and you'll see why. It is a lovely Victorian remodeled to let in wonderful light. It is a 'character house.' No Jacuzzis here, just a wonderful cast iron claw foot tub that may well be original, exposed beams, and real plaster walls. The skylights and vaulted ceiling give it an up-to-date feel that blends the best of the past and present.

What makes this house unique

It's a unique house in a wonderful location. Victorian charm, modern amenities, and a block off Pearl Street. Experience Boulder at its best!

Skylights in almost every room; beautiful natural light. The accommodations were incredible and the location could not have been more convenient.

Sublime

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Beautiful home. So much more light than I expected. We dined out as Pearl street is so close. It snowed during our visit and before we awoke the sidewalks had been cleared. Dave, the owner, was very responsive to questions and the check out process was the easiest we have ever experienced. Great town, great experience.

Charming and cozy stay near everything

  • 5 of 5

What a charming home away from home with wonderful Decor and wood stove within walking distance to trails, bars, restaurants and movie theater. The kitchen was well equipped for a holiday meal for 6 and our host provided wine and essentials upon arrival. Highly recommend!

Charming Property in Central Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Boulder at the Spruce Roost. The property is ideally located one block off Pearl Street. It is a charming house and everything is provided. The house was very clean and the beds comfortable. Be aware that one of the bedrooms is a loft which does not offer complete privacy. There is a private changing area though. The other two bedrooms were on the main floor which was ideal as I had my elderly parents with me. There is one parking spot which is so helpful in this part of town. We mostly ate out but we had breakfast every morning at the house and I cooked dinner two nights. The kitchen is adequately equipped for basic cooking.

The owner was very responsive on the first night when we had a mishap (of our own doing). Also, we had a snow storm while we were there. I was lying in bed thinking that I should get up and shovel but it had already been done by the owner before I got up. We so appreciated the bottle of wine and fresh flowers left by the owner for our arrival!

Some of the activities that we enjoyed were the Boulder Teahouse, the Atmospheric Museum, a Local Table Tours cocktail tour (Megan Bucholtz was a great tour guide), a brewery tour at Boulder Beer, dinner at the Flagstaff House (to celebrate my son's graduation), and a movie at the Fiske Planetarium. We didn't do much hiking due to the weather and an all ages group.

I would recommend the Spruce Roost for a traveler to Boulder.

Great location, clean, inviting.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location and friendly appearance. Comfortable beds and linens, living area. Bathrooms do not provide much privacy...one right off the kitchen with a bifold door and the upstairs bathroom has no door. Hot water lasted for 2 five minute showers. Nice front porch, back yard with grill and thoughtful owners.

Boulder in the fall...

  • 5 of 5

For years I had been dreaming of going back to Boulder, Colorado. The first time that I was there, I had stayed in the Boulderado. I kind of wanted to do the same this time, but coming back with two kids I knew that a hotel room was out. The search began for a condo or house that would accommodate our 4 night stay when I ran across this adorable home just one block away from Pearl Street. It was perfect for us and exactly where we wanted to be. The house was cozy and we felt right at home as soon as we walked through the door.

I would definitely recommend this home to friends or family who are looking for a space to relax after exploring the mountains and if we ever get the chance to come back, I would love to stay here again!

Our house is located on a quiet side street one block off east Pearl Street where you will find the best shopping and dining in Boulder. The highest rated restaurants in Boulder are all within a 2 minute walk. The Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall with its nightly acts is just a 3 minute walk away. This is the best location in Boulder!
