About the Property

A modern mountain home nestled in scenic Boulder Canyon along Boulder Creek.

This is the perfect home away from home for those who want the best of both worlds - a restful getaway in the mountains, yet only a short drive away from downtown Boulder fun.

Open floor plan, beautifully furnished. 10-15 min from downtown Boulder; 25-30 min from Eldora ski resort; 5 min from Wedgewood on Boulder Creek.

The home's open floor plan features a large great room lined with floor to ceiling windows. French doors off the dining area lead to a 700 square foot deck that features a gas fire pit and BBQ.

The spacious and fully equipped kitchen features modern stainless appliances and quartz countertops. A large kitchen window overlooks the deck. The bar seating includes two conveniently-placed electrical outlets for plugging in cell phones, laptops, etc.

The living room features a wood burning fireplace (firewood provided), a leather sofa, and two leather chairs, a comfy LoveSac, and a 58" flat screen TV with cable, Apple TV, and Netflix.

The entry way includes a desk space and leads to the two bedrooms. The bedrooms are small compared to American standards, but they are beautifully appointed with lofted ceilings and skylights that give them a more spacious feel. The guest room includes books and games for use during your stay.

Both bathrooms have heated tile floors. The master bath has a large glass-enclosed shower. The master walk-in closet has a stackable washer/dryer. The guest bath has a claw foot tub with shower surrounded by beautiful epay wood.

NOTE: Owners (Jay & Joann) live in a separate garden-level apartment onsite. The apartment has its own exterior entrance and there is no connecting stairwell or door to the main house. The only shared space is the driveway. One parking space is provided for guests in the driveway. Additional parking is available near the bridge.

If you need anything during your stay or would like recommendations, just let us know. Otherwise, we will respect your privacy.

GUEST ACCESS
Keypad on front door to check-in/check-out independently and come and go as you wish.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
-Pricing varies based upon the number of guests, so please ensure your reservation reflects the correct number of guests.
-There is no cellular service in the canyon; free wifi throughout the house can be used to operate cell phones. There is a land line with free calling throughout the continental U.S. provided for use.
- The driveway is gravel
- There's no food delivery here
- Given it's on Boulder Canyon, there can be traffic noise (especially during commute hours)
-Like the vast majority of properties in the foothills, this one doesn't have central A/C. At 6,300+ feet elevation, the temperature at the house is typically 10 degrees cooler than in the city (5,400') and rarely goes beyond the 80's. We do have an A/C wall unit that can be used to cool the great room on the warm days.

HOUSE RULES
-No smoking.
-No overnight guests who are not part of the reservation.
-No parties or events.
-Do not flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilets.
-Please do not leave food outside or in cars, this will help keep bears away from the property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Jay and I have a shared passion for the great outdoors, traveling and experiencing new things. We love the active, mountain lifestyle...which is a main reason why we both moved from the Midwest to Colorado after college. Jay is an avid mountain biker and adventure racer (kayak, mountain bike, rappel, trail run, navigation). I'm a distance runner and triathlete. I love running marathons and did my first full distance triathlon at the inaugural Ironman Boulder. Check out our blog on WordPress...Jay and Joann's Journey. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

Why the Owner Chose Boulder, CO, USA:
