Mountain Moon Guesthouse 10 miles Northwest of Boulder! Beautiful upscale home!!

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,750 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Beautiful, spacious & sun-filled 3 bedroom, 2 bath home surrounded by mountains.

~The home is a green built stucco home in an area surrounded by Roosevelt National Forest. There's one other home across the valley but you have to look hard to find it. So up here on this mountain top you'll see nothing but nature and stars.

~The master suite and all the bedrooms are spacious and open onto their own deck. You'll likely see wildlife during your stay, especially deer but also wild turkey, fox, elk, hummingbirds and more. Even saw a marmot once. And if you listen carefully at night you might hear an owl, a baby coyote or the wings of bats.

~The mountain views from the home are spectacular, and the night sky incredible since there's no other light competing. And of course the mountain moon! Hiking is steps outside the door or on nearby trails. Bring your hiking shoes/boots/daypack, snow shoes/cross-country skis, mountain bike, fishing pole or fly rod and a horse if you have one (horse must find other accommodations;). The nearby Saint Vrain Trailhead is one of the best kept secrets in this part of Colorado, so expect to find peace and solitude in addition to beauty. Other trails are accessible in town and many more within a few miles.

~The home is an easy drive to Boulder, but if you want to stay local there's The Mercantile Restaurant (affectionately called "The Merc" by locals). Bed and... breakfast at The Merc'! It's a one-of-a-kind mountain restaurant serving wonderful breakfast, lunch, dinner, local draft beer & wine. In continuous operation since 1902! Rainbow, the owner, is famous locally and beyond for her fabulous cooking. Only a 3 to 5 minute drive from the house, there's live music every Thursday & Saturday night, and acoustic music/tapas on Friday afternoon.

~ Eldora Ski Resort is 27 miles from the house over the beautiful Peak-to-Peak highway in the destination mountain town of Nederland, with it's many shops and restaurants.

~ Estes Park, gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, is 32 miles away over the Peak-to-Peak Highway. Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous paved road in the United States, takes visitors through the park and across the Continental Divide.

~ Brainard Lake is 15 miles up the mountain on the Peak-to-Peak Highway in the Indian Peaks Wilderness with many choices of trails varying in difficulty.

~ Jamestown is home to many artists & musicians, so there are special events throughout the year, such as JAVA JAM (JAVA + JAM=coffee/art + Jamestown Artists & Musicians) and the JAM for the Arts. 4th of July in Jamestown is an entire day of activities, beginning with a pancake breakfast and ending with fireworks. It's a community of wonderful people recovering beautifully from the catastrophic flood of 2013.

~ Jamestown is also a charming destination for tourists, cyclists, bikers (mountain & motor) who come to enjoy the ambiance. All are welcome! The drive up James Canyon is wondrous throughout the seasons of the year. Enjoy the drive, then stop in at The Merc for hydration & sustenance, linger in the town park by the creek, or visit Elysian park on Lower Main where there's a tennis court, a pavilion, a playground and walking trails. Jamestown is a unique destination in itself and on the way to many others, and The Mountain Moon Guesthouse & Retreat is a wonderful resting place in the midst of it all.

Note: The owner lives on-site on the ground level with separate entrance, separate garage and a concrete floor separating the spaces, so you won't hear or see me unless you want to, but I'm available to answer all your questions!

About Jyoti Sharp

I moved to the quaint mountain town of Jamestown in 2002 when I purchased a home on beautiful James Creek and opened a vacation rental in this home in May, 2013. It was partially destroyed by the floods of September, 2013 and will one day be rebuilt. It's truly been a heart-opening experience to witness so much goodness and generosity come our way after the flood.

In early 2015 I was fortunate to purchase an incredibly beautiful home in the mountains nearby with stunning views. So happy to be back in the business of opening my doors and making folks feel welcome and at home in a beautiful mountain environment.

I live on-site on the ground level with separate entrance and a concrete floor separating the spaces, so you won't hear or see me unless you want to, but I'm available to answer all your questions!

I've also owned a small business in Boulder since 2000 called Windhorse Elder Care. I have two wonderful sons and daughters-in-law as well as a precious granddaughter.

Jyoti Sharp purchased this house in 2015

wonderful accomodations and close to Boulder

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very comfortable in this large 3bdrm/2bath guesthouse. Beautifully decorated! Great setting. Very quiet. Close enough to Boulder for us! Jyoti tended to our every need even supplying folding camp chairs and coolers for our day trips to Vail and Estes Park. Great location to explore this part of the state. Very special place!

A house in the forest

  • 5 of 5

We gathered family here for our traditional summer get-together in nature. The focus this year was the Perseids meteor shower. It is extremely hard to get away from light pollution, but here at Mountain Moon we had a bountifully starry sky and could actually see the Milky Way.

The house is beautiful and spacious and comfortable with a very large kitchen where we prepared some fun family meals. Jyoti was very friendly and responsive to our needs and responded right away to any inquiries. An overall successful adventure.

Wonderful Stay

Spacious, quiet, impeccably maintained, great kitchen, plenty of privacy and gracious and welcoming host. Town is very friendly but tiny. Perfect home base for outdoor activities, excursions into Boulder and off the beaten path enjoyment.
