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 4.979592 based on 49 reviews

Quiet, lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at the delightful little carriage house! The owners are equally delightful. They were warmly inviting, available and helpful, but also respectful of space and privacy. We enjoyed having the kitchenette, which was very clean and had everything you might need, along with a full-size fridge. It was easy to prepare a quick meal here for the kids, and there were great choices for quality restaurants nearby as well, which we enjoyed. The location was quiet and peaceful, and it was easy to drive to our vacation activities-- a very quick drive in to Boulder and easy travel to the mountains and parks for hiking the trails. The only heads-up we would give is a warning that the bedroom is not actually closed off from the rest of the apartment, so if privacy is required, know that it is limited. We definitely felt we were all sleeping in the same room, and did not have the bedtime privacy we had hoped for in having a separate room for Mom and Dad. It was lovely, just not very private from the children sleeping on the other side of the wall. We would stay again if traveling by ourselves. Overall, the place is truly wonderful and we recommend it.

Great Neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious upper suite had everything we needed. It was super clean and modern. There are lights on either side of the bed which we appreciate. We took advantage of the pleasant neighborhood and wandered quite a few times. Coffee, shop, Mexican restaurant, brewery tap room, BBQ restaurant, and music in the square, were all services within a couple of blocks, and were enjoyed by us. Our hosts Kevin & Maria were very accommodating.

We loved the Carriage House in Prospect, a very unique community. Everything was as per the description - this is a unit above a garage so there are stairs. It was comfortable, quiet and clean. Kevin and Maria were welcoming and friendly hosts. We used the location to hike and bird the Boulder, Pawnee Grasslands area which were easy to access. The neighbourhood is colourful, quiet and the tiny "downtown" has some nice restaurants. We ate at Urban Thai and had a lovely meal sitting out on the patio. We are loving VHBO!!!
