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, Cavegirl Coffeehouse 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.
We are very excited to welcome a new bakery to our neighborhood. Babettes Bread Bakery, opening in Feb. '19, is relocating from Denver, where it was recognized as one of the TOP 21 BAKERIES IN THE COUNTRY! In addition to the best bread that you have ever tasted in your life, they have a wood burning oven, where they make incredible Neapolitan and Roman styled pizzas as well as Italian styled cocktails, which can be enjoyed on their rooftop deck which overlooks the 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. El Mercado 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.
If your timing is right, we recommend that you stop by Primitive Beer's tasting room. This unique brewery is only open to the public two weekends/month (2nd and 4th Friday and Saturday), but well worth a visit if you are interested in trying something special. They use a centuries-old Belgian brewing method for creating wood barrel fermented beers. Venture beyond Prospect a short distance and explore some of Longmont's other 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.
