Delightful Carriage House in America's Coolest Neighborhood

Bedrooms 1
Space 650 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Why stay in a dull cookie cutter chain hotel when you can pay the same or even less to have your own carriage house in the internationally recognized New Urbanist community of Prospect, named by Dwell Magazine as “America’s Coolest Neighborhood”?

You’ll find everything you need to feel at home in this modern, comfortable and clean second story home.

Sleep well each night in a lovely canopy bed. The bedroom also has plenty of closet space and a small desk from which to work (with wireless high-speed Internet). The well-lit living room with vaulted ceilings is stylishly furnished with a sleeper sofa, a dining table and a flat screen TV that has your favorite channels, including HBO. The kitchen has all the tools and accessories that you would expect to prepare your own meals, but why cook when you can walk down the street to choose from one of Prospect's many terrific restaurants? The home also features a lovely garden patio area where you can relax as you listen to the sound of trickling water from a small fountain.

A highlight of your stay will be taking strolls down the narrow tree-lined streets of Prospect, enjoying the unique blend of traditional and modern architectural styles as well as the lovely parks and a great playground for the kids.

Spend a lazy morning at our local café, Cafe Urban, reading the morning paper as you sit at a table out front looking west as the warm morning sun casts vibrant shades of red, orange and yellow on the nearby Rockies.

When the evening comes around, take a short walk back to downtown Prospect for dinner, where you'll have several great options to choose from. Comida offers delicious Mexican comfort food and killer margaritas in a contemporary setting. Urban Thai is a popular restaurant that serves an authentic and tasty menu (don’t miss the Lemongrass Chicken). 2020 Food and Wine Bar is a classy yet casual choice for wine flights, artisan pizzas, salumi, cheese and salads. The Rib House has award winning Kansas City style BBQ and a great bar with numerous local craft beers.

Longmont also has four award-winning microbreweries in town as well as an amazing cheese shop. The Cheese Importers is a local gem and a must see for any foodies, with hundreds of different types of cheese from all over the world that are supplied to over 400 fine restaurants, natural grocers and hotels along the Front Range.

Families looking for activities beyond Prospect will have many options to choose from. The Longmont Recreation Center is just one mile away, where you will find a great indoor pool for the kids, a climbing wall, basketball courts and a fitness center. Just across from the Rec Center is the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center with exhibits on regional history and various changing programs that is popular with Longmont children. Downtown Boulder is just a short drive from Prospect, where the whole family will love visiting Pearl Street and the majestic Rocky Mountain National Park is only one hour away to your northwest. Kevin and Maria will also be happy to provide you with tips on the great places to go for hiking, mountain biking or snowshoeing in the area so that you can be sure to experience the best of Colorado's magical outdoors.

About Kevin and Maria Wells

Kevin and Maria, along with their two teenage sons, Oskar and Emrik, and their Golden Doodle, Shika, live very typical 'Coloardo' lifestyles. They love to hike and camp throughout the Rockies in the summer and ski at Breck and Vail in the winters (minus Shika). They also love to travel the world, often using VRBO when they do so, which is one of the big reasons why they have chosen to open their carriage house to other travelers like themselves.

Kevin and Maria Wells purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kevin and Maria Wells chose Front Range

Maria is an architect that was always enchanted by the unique and imaginative designs in Prospect, which is like no other community that they have ever seen. Having lived in Prospect for four years, they've discovered that the best thing about living here is actually the friendships that have been fostered with the creative, friendly and dynamic neighbors in their community.

Delightful Carriage House in America's Coolest Neighborhood
average rating of 4.981818 based on 55 reviews

Warm hospitality, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable carriage house is located in the unique Longmont community of Prospect. Here, a guest is surrounded by vivid color, lush vegetation and beautiful gardens. The hospitality of our hosts Kevin and Maria, was surpassed only by the friendliness of their dog Shika. The carriage house is private, comfortable and clean. We enjoyed great kitchen facilities, washer and dryer, clean linens, comfortable beds and furniture. It is also a very short drive to numerous coffee houses, great restaurants, spas, and anything else you might need. Thanks again Kevin and Maria; we had a wonderful time!

Perfect place for R&R after hiking, beer tasting and baseball game.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kevin and Maria for being such great hosts. Your place was perfect for our family reunion and our outdoor activities. Colorado and its surroundings are colorful, beautiful and peaceful. It was great to be without our usual LA traffic. The Prospect community was quaint. Loved the nearby restaurants: Comida and 2 Dog Diner; Open Door Brewery and coffee shop. Many Thanks.

There aren't enough adjectives to describe how amazing the carriage house is!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful neighborhood and fantastic accommodations... the carriage house has everything we needed plus more. My 2 year daughter loved all the books and toys. We definitely didn't need to bring any from home. We are already planning our trip back next summer!
