LUXURY FURNISHED HOME ON 13 ACRES IN THE FOOTHILLS OF BOULDER, COLORADO
Only a 15 minute drive from downtown Boulder, but worlds away.
We are thrilled to share our Boulder foothills mountain retreat just minutes from the heart of Boulder, Colorado. Whether you are in the Boulder area for a long weekend or for a few weeks our home will guarantee you the best that Boulder has to offer. This large 3500 square foot home offers the serenity of the foothills on 13 acres of land, all the while a short drive to downtown Boulder and all it has to offer – world class restaurants, breathtaking hiking trails, the University of Colorado, a vibrant start-up community, and scientific labs. Come here on vacation, a writing retreat, to visit family, for seminars at the university, or for business.
Our home can sleep 6 adults comfortably in our three bedrooms (each with a King or Queen bed). There is a large living/dining room and sun room with high ceilings, a loft with large screen 3D television, a big open-plan master suite (king bed) including a jacuzzi bath and a steam shower for two, a second bedroom (queen bed) on the ground floor, and a large study with a comfortable queen sized futon upstairs. The bedrooms and the study each have access to their own full bath.
On the main floor you will find a large south-west facing living room with tall picture windows displaying pine trees as far as the eye can see and a beautiful valley below. The living room has a big stone fireplace, a high fidelity stereo system, a 42 inch HD television, and a dining table that seats 8. On the side of the living room is a fully equipped kitchen.
Next to the main living room is a bright and cozy sun room with a wood burning stove. This area is ideal for reading the newspaper in the sun over a Sunday breakfast, or for opening a bottle of champagne before dinner in front of the wood stove. Also on the main floor is a bedroom outfitted with a queen sized luxury bed (Sterns and Foster) and a full bath. Upstairs above the main living room you will find an open-plan study with a queen-sized futon-style bed. This room has a private full bath.
The property sits on 13 acres of land with sweeping private views. A large flagstone patio in front of the living room and sun room allows for outdoor space on warm days and nights. (Given the sunny exposure this could be at any time of the year.) There is parking available for many cars on an unpaved driveway. You will be a quick 8 mile drive to the heart of downtown Boulder – even closer to other parts of Boulder including endless restaurants, brewpubs, grocery stores, and other conveniences.
We have listed daily prices, and a discounted price for weekly rentals (7 days). We may be able to consider monthly rentals (28 days) - please enquire. Also, don't hesitate to look for this property on a major competitor's website (name starts with an "A") where total prices, fees included, will likely be cheaper due to VRBO's ever-increasing fees structure.
No need to look around...this is the place to stay if you want something peaceful, secluded and beautiful. The house is very well located and close to downtown Boulder, restaurants, hikes, etc. We were absolutely pleased with this house, the previous reviews were accurate and helpful.
The house provided us everything we needed and then some more. We really enjoy cooking and having a fully stocked, high-quality kitchen was definitely a plus. The owners have a remarkable music and movies collection in their place, which we used during our stay.
Gorgeous house, stunning views, amazing deck and an unbeatable host. We started our unforgettable vacation cheering with a welcoming champagne bottle that the owners provided for free, thank you !. We were so pleased with it that we will love to return to that place in the future, as a matter of fact, my parents refused to visit me again unless we stay at that place :).
This house is in a beautiful setting and was ideal for a balanced vacation of exploring Boulder & relaxing at home. It was spacious and comfortable for 4 adults (one couple & 2 single), especially with the three full bathrooms. We enjoyed the well-equipped outdoor grilling & dining area. Communication with both the homeowner and property manager was excellent - responsive, informative, and hospitable.
We had a wonderful time in our mountain get-away. The house was clean, updated and had so many fun nuances to it. As described, the house is a 10-15 minute ride into town and closer than that are a few key stores and coffee shops. We went to Lucky's market a few times and they had just what we needed...quality organic produce, diapers, and even delicious prepared foods!
The house was totally secluded but close enough to neighbors in the event of a true emergency. The views are even better than the pictures. Sitting on the patio at night was dreamy. There is no light pollution so you can see so many stars.
We had 4 adults and 2 children in our group. Our family of 4 took the upstairs which worked out well. Even though the kids slept in the loft/office space, they slept through our conversations downstairs. All of the rooms were very spacious and had quality furniture and beautifully decorated. There are 3 and 1/2 bathrooms so everyone had privacy.
I woke up early one morning and I got to watch a deer outside. One evening, a fox came up to the patio and was looking for a snack. We quickly shut the door and picked up the cameras!
Highly recommend this home!
The hospitality and logistics were made quite easy by the owner and agent. Excellent.
The views were awesome and proximity to Boulder and Estes Park were ideal. Kitchen and pantries were well stocked.
We would absolutely return to this place. On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 10.
Beautiful views and very secluded. The house has a unique architectural style with lots of light and high ceilings. Owners very accommodating and overall a wonderful memory maker?
The house was more than we could have ever imagined and the view from the deck was stunning!!! The house provided us everything we needed and then some. We are people who prefer preparing our meals so having a fully stocked, high quality kitchen was great. I love listening to music and thought I had rather eclectic taste until I saw your cd collection. Having music available throughout the house was an added bonus for me.
Our nephew loved discovering all the "secrets" in the house. It started with finding the laundry shoots, then on to the many remotes for the ceiling fans (he was in charge of operating them every day).
We took full advantage of all the Boulder (Colorado Springs, Idaho Springs, & Golden too) has to offer during the time we were there. We hiked Palmer Pike, Manitou Incline, Chautauqua-up to the Royal Arch, Eldorado Canyon (hiked 7 miles this day), drove through Rocky Mountain National Park (even drove the 9 mile switchback), climbed Mount Sanitas, hiked at Brainard Rec. Park (saw a moose up close), went zip lining, white water rafting, tried out alpine slides, and even went on the Coors Brewery Tour. Our days were packed full with activities and we loved every minute of it!
During our daughter's wedding we utilized Cottonwood Kennels for our yellow lab. I would highly recommend them to future guests.
The bottle of champagne was a very nice touch & a very pleasant surprise, thank you!!
We miss Colorado already and very much look forward to another visit!!
