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.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

This rental was the center for our family's reunion, with other family members staying nearby. The spacious lodge has everything you could possibly need. We even had a careered dinner for 28 on the large deck. We would indeed recommended this place to others, with one caution. There are many stairs, inside and out. Two elderly, and somewhat infirm, guests at our dinner party needed assistance. For the same reason I wouldn't recommend it to families with toddlers.

Owner's Response: We are always happy when people enjoy this very special place. We have hosted many groups with guests of all ages. At the current time we do not provide the house as a handicapped accessible home. As pictured, the home is on three levels with commensurate flights of stairs. All interior stairways have railings. However, once on the main level (one flight from parking level) there is access to several patios, bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and entertainment areas. We have hosted convalescing guests who thoroughly enjoyed the experience and considered it rejuvenating. This group decided to have their main family event catered on the highest patio as it is the most scenic and inspiring place on the property. However, we would recommend the equally large and very beautiful deck off the main level, next to the kitchen for groups with "elderly, and somewhat infirm, guests". It would have been easier access for less mobile members of the group. The house is actually well suited for families with toddlers. There is an optional, very high quality, toddler gate (picture 20) to lock the little ones into an area that has no stairs and access to all of the above. Not to mention the great playground, that is toddler ready in the yard on the same level. The hot tub is on the highest level (off the master) and has double locks to make sure little ones are always safe. We raised our child in the house (picture 17) and had birthday parties for her there when she and her friends were toddlers. The toddler gate was visible hanging in the garage for this guests stay but they must not have been aware it was available to them. As always we have a full staff of maintenance, groundskeeping and housekeeping personnel at the ready to assist our guests. All our guests receive a guide that orients them to all that the house has to offer and how to get the most out of your visit to this spectacular spot. We have added a section on the toddler friendly safety features of the lodge.

Wonderful Family Vacation at the Boulderhaus Lodge

  • 5 of 5

My family will certainly be coming back to stay at the Boulderhaus! The lodge is wonderful place for everyone to enjoy a great get away. It was clean, comfortable, unique, peaceful, and was the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. The spacious decks, green lush surroundings, soothing hot tub, and crisp fresh Colorado air rejuvenated us! Amenities were all top notch and the town of Boulder is just minutes away. This place has it all - with amazing fishing, scenic hiking, jogging, mountain biking, and more. The living room and dinning room areas are very spacious and cozy. The kitchen was great. Made me feel like we were at home. Every utensil or kitchen item we needed was on hand which made for a relaxing 5 star vacation!!!! Cant say enough about this place and cant wait to come back!

Unbelievable Graduation Week at the Boulderhaus Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We just spent one of the most relaxing and enjoyable weeks in Boulder at the Boulderhaus Lodge! The accommodations and amenities were outstanding and the house had all the comforts of home without the worries that come with being at home. The location was beautiful and peaceful as it is located next to the creek that you can hear running from the relaxing decks and hot tub. Fly fishing, hiking, jogging, mountain biking and relaxing with friends were the highlights of the week! If you are looking for a beautiful home that is close to Boulder with the feel of being far away from the city, this is your place!
