About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Cozy, stand alone studio located in garden setting in Boulder’s West Pearl neighborhood. Quiet, beautiful views, just blocks from the Pearl Street Mall with its fabulous restaurants and shops and steps from Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Park trail system. Has its own deck for enjoying early morning sunshine and a garden seating area in summer which fronts one of the oldest irrigation ditches—Farmers Ditch—in Boulder. A small pond in the garden cheers the colder weather with the sound of rippling water and flashing color of small golden fishes.

The interior, cozy and welcoming, offers a quiet retreat for contemplation, writing, drawing, or preparation for strenuous outdoor activity. A couple blocks away are bus stops for the Eldora Ski Area and trails for all levels of hiking.

Beautiful setup

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week while exploring Colorado. The location was perfect to wander Pearl Street & even go tubing on Boulder Creek. Parking was right out front which made it very easy to go drive off & explore the next-door mountains. The room was a perfect size with a gorgeous outdoor seating area to relax in. Highly recommend for a single or a couple.

Wonderful experience...peaceful setting close to great running/hiking/biking trails.

  • 4 of 5

This studio was nicely done from the bathroom to the outside sitting patio. The neighborhood is quaint with beautiful Victorian era homes and within walking distance to the Pearl Street shopping areas. The studio sits back off the street so it is very private and quiet.

We also liked that in the morning several local trails were close by for running.

Perfect hideaway in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet place to stay, as well as a wonderful

hostess, than look no further! It was a perfect retreat; the flowers all around are beautiful, and the sound of the brook is soothing. The inside was just as described; clean and very sufficent for one or two people. It is updated yet rustic at the same time. All in all a great place to stay.

Perfectly peaceful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This small studio was the perfect size for two. The outdoor area was so nice for relaxing and enjoying the hummingbirds and mountain views. It is an easy walk to downtown. There are great running and hiking trails within walking distance of the rental and there are so many more wonderful hikes within an hour drive of boulder. Cindy was a wonderful host and we absolutely loved the Spruce Studio!!!

An absolute paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Spruce studio last week and loved it! The location is fantastic we walked to everything! Everywhere we walked was under 30 minutes away and an added bonus was combating the calories from eating the delicious-ness that is Boulder cuisine. The neighborhood is quiet and lovely and parking was a breeze. Cindy was a wonderful host, meeting us upon arrival and thoroughly explaining the ins and outs of the studio. The place itself is in the backyard of the main house, it is extremely private and peaceful. It is very apparent how much love and care is put into the landscaping of the yard and the house itself. Cindy has created a true paradise in Boulder and neatly rounded out what was an absolutely exquisite trip. I cannot wait to return to Boulder and I absolutely recommend the Spruce Studio to anyone who wants a truly perfect place to call home while you are enjoying Beautiful Boulder.

My wife and I stayed for the weekend and absolutely loved this place. Very peaceful and private. The place is super clean and comfortable and the surrounding yard is great. Cindy was a very responsive host even though we never actually got to meet in person (we were out and about most the weekend). I would definitely stay here again. We are VRBO owners ourselves so have a very critical eye for what is important and this place has it! It is very compact which is ideal for us and the proximity to everything is a big plus. Thank you Cindy (sorry it took so long to write the review).
