Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic reunuin with my son's family while celebrating our granddaughters fourth and second birthdays. The house is beautiful and spacious with a very nice yard. and the girls had fun on the slide. Early Saturday morning there were two deer grazing in the yard. We all immensely enjoyed the Rocky Mountains.

Just a fabulous place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I was struck by the beauty of the surroundings, yet minutes away from all the conveniences of Boulder. We were here for 2 weeks for my daughters wedding and I don't think we could have found a more perfect place or such a great owner. Larry was just terrific to work with and took care of anything we needed done. The house was chock full of supplies, dishware, towels etc. No want for anything truly other than maybe wanting to stay a bit longer! Extra fridge in the garage was a huge help for us. Swamp cooler worked well and the outdoor decks were just great for entertaining. So glad we rented here and I recommend this place highly.

Spectacular home, everything we hoped it would be and more!

  • 5 of 5

Larry was fantastic to work with, made sure we had everything we needed and good communication throughout.

The house is spectacular. Pictures do not tell the complete story of how awesome the house is and the great setting. Super comfy beds, a great den, and decks everywhere that invite you outside. My wife and I, and our 3 kids had space, privacy, and great family time. A bonus is the foosball table downstairs - our kids loved it.

We loved being surprised to find that the house supplied many of the basics - coffee, salt/pepper, paper products, foil, ziplock bags, etc so we didn't have to buy those items during our stay. It was a simple but very meaningful touch from the home owner that goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. We did make an effort to replace what we used, but were under no obligation to do so.

It is truly just a 5 minute drive to Pearl St, but you would never know that from the house that feels like a true mountain retreat. This home, and Larry (the owner) gets the strongest recommendation I could offer.

Thank you Larry for sharing your fantastic house with us for the week. We absolutely plan on returning!

Perfect Location for the "Boulder Experience"

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of old college friends (four couples) and their toddlers that wanted to get together for a pac12 basketball game and enjoy Boulder. This property was an absolute gem and exceeded our expectations. Located in a serene mountain forest setting yet only a $6 Uber to all the great entertainment on the pearl street mall. the kids loved that. the kids also loved the playground! The adults enjoyed the game room and stocked the wine bar chiller. kids could have their TV upstairs and we enjoyed the home theater system down there. We all went for hikes out the back door and ended up, afterwards, in the large, scenic, very private, hot tub. It was a little piece of heaven. While we felt like we were in a private mountain resort yet Boulder was close and convenient. The BoulderHaus lodge offers a fantastic vacation experience and the owners did everything possible to make our stay great!! we enjoyed a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park and on the way back stopped at one of Boulders Best Breweries, Avery Brewing, for some fantastic, unique craft beers and incredible food. we did take advantage of the beer system and the local store delivered right to the cooler. we also enjoyed a quick day of Skiing only 25 minutes away. it was great to come back to cold beer and a hot tub. WE LOVED THIS PLACE AND WILL BE BACK.
