About Terry

We have moved all over the country as a military family and nothing can compare to Nederland's easy going small town charm and all of the fun to be had there. We have opened restaurants and coffee shops around the country as we've moved around. Our First Street Bar and Grill became a locals favorite in Nederland for casual dining and music. We could not let go of this property as we moved to Tampa, Florida because of how much we love it there, and, so we offer it as a vacation rental for others to enjoy. We are honored to share it with you! Come visit us at Jet City Espresso, allow us the pleasure of hosting you in Tampa, or join us for some Irish music if you're in south Tampa!

Terry purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Terry chose Nederland

While the exterior of the house is quite modest, the inside and the yard are beautiful and very comfortable. We love the ranch style layout and the space. It has been a perfect place to gather family and friends to celebrate and enjoy one anothers company.

What makes this cottage unique

The convenience to town and to the outdoors are what most people most enjoy here . Weather you're visiting to relax and unwind, to hit the Festivals or to hike, bike, ski or enjoy the outdoors in your own way, this location can't be beat. We had many gatherings on the deck by the creek with the doors open and they were lovely!

Wait until you get to the back of the house!

  • 5 of 5

From the front it looks small but it is quite large once you get inside! The rooms were very clean and spacious. Having three bathrooms was wonderful! The back deck, stream and the private feeling made up for the plain front of the house. The kitchen was great to work in and the open concept made it fun to cook in while being with family. It was nice being so close to town while being far enough removed to not hear too much traffic.Terry was very helpful from beginning to end answering any and all questions. Thanks for a wonderful place to stay!

Nederland is a small mountain town, about 18 vertical miles from Boulder, renown for attracting down to earth and energetic locals and visitors. Crosby, Stills and Nash, Yonder Mountain String Band, David Grisman, and many more have frequented this charming town for the opportunity to retreat and to record. Music lovers are drawn to Nederland's Ned Fest in late August. The Frozen Dead Guy Festival attracts visitors from all over the world!

The mining museum and the antique steam shovel displayed are a popular favorite.

World class athletes, bicyclists, climbers, skiers and runners challenge themselves and train at the high altitude. The Peak to Peak Highway 72 is famous for it's leaf viewing, photo opportunities, horseback riding, and motor cycling appeal. Hike or cross country ski around Mud Lake nearby. Families are enchanted with the friendly town amenities such as the Carousel of Happiness, ice skating and tennis park, Chipeta park's child's fishing pond, and, the Wild Bear environmental classroom and outdoor camps offer fun leaning opportunities. The Backdoor Theater is only a block away for Friday and Saturday movie night out.

The Wild Mountain Smokehouse is a locals favorite for micro brewed beers and the best smoked chicken wings around. Enjoy the mountain peak view from the Sundance Cafe at breakfast.

At Caribou Creek Cottage, you can lounge on the deck, start a hike from the front door, or, walk a few yards to the RTD bus to catch a lift to the ski resort or Boulder. The trails at the top of Caribou Road (out the back door) are amazing for skiing, picnicking, hiking, four-wheeling- whatever adventure you crave. Take a jog along the peaceful Caribou Road.

Colorado's unique mountain gambling casinos and buffets are a lovely picturesque drive to Black Hawk and Central City. Enjoy the glory of Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park after a scenic leaf drive across the Peak to Peak highway 72.

You are likely to be visited by Elk, Fox, birds of prey, deer, or a bobcat. Let's try to avoid Lions and Bears, but they're out there! Photographers are enchanted in this area. We've even seen black foxes here.

The possibilities for beauty, fun, and especially outdoor enjoyment are endless!
