Why Carol Haile chose Boulder
This property has views of water and mountains; unique in Colorado! It is surrounded by Boulder County, Boulder City and Boulder Mountain Parks Open Space. It is a two acre, rural, quiet and peaceful property yet very close to town. We chose this location because of it's proximity to Open Space (for horseback riding, walking, biking) and to Boulder Reservoir (for boating and swimming). We love the rural feel of this property and yet it is so close to downtown Boulder and Niwot.
What makes this Studio unique
Rural, two acre property backs up to Boulder Reservoir. Located on Boulder's premiere training route. Eagle trail head access to Boulder Open Space directly across the street. We love having views of water and mountains. We love the quiet, peaceful setting and yet being only 7 miles to downtown Boulder.

Better Than Expected
We were in the Boulder area for a wedding. The Roost gave us easy access to the various activities in and around Boulder while providing a quiet, rural setting with a hiking trail right across the road. The space was large and relaxing. The decorating was beautiful and carefully thought out. The amenities were more than any we have had elsewhere. We loved the shady veranda where we read and enjoyed a glass of wine and ate our breakfast. If we are ever in the area again, we will want to stay at the The Roost.
Thank you for your lovely review. We would love to have you stay again when you return.
My wife and I loved our stay at the Roost. It was very spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. The location away from traffic and noise was welcome. There is a great view of Boulder Reservoir to the back and the mountains to the front. A trailhead was across the street, and seeing the cyclists, runners and hikers go by encompassed what make this area so spectacular. Carol thought of everything in terms of amenities in the room. We highly recommend this property.
This is our favorite home away from home!
We've lost count of how many times we have stayed at Carol's Roost. Her hospitality is genuinely personalized, never interfering and always welcome. The location is a gem - across from several beautiful hikes and a lovely view of Boulder Reservoir, yet still in driving range of all that Boulder and the Rockies have to offer. You won't be disappointed with your stay - in fact - you'll be back time and time again.
Wonderful hosts, lovely location
For those who want a quiet retreat with quick access to Boulder, this rental is perfect. Quiet location with a sunrise view over the reservoir, sunset view of the mountains. One evening a great horned owl landed in a tree outside the window and ‘spoke’ to us. We never met the owners—they are very respectful of guests’ privacy—but were very responsive to the few questions we sent via email during our stay. We came home one night to find a bag delicious gluten-free cookies at our door.
The studio is immaculately clean, everything kept in good repair. Lovely artwork on the walls. Kitchenette has a mini-fridge, microwave, Keurig coffeemaker, water kettle, plus glasses, dishes, utensils, along with a variety of coffees and teas, plus water and wine. No stove, but we had use of the grill and enjoyed dinner on the patio one evening. Post-hikes, we really appreciated the spacious shower, with good water pressure and plenty of thick, fresh towels. If traveliing to Boulder by air, skip shampoos and soaps in your 3-1-1 bag—the bath is very well stocked with nice-quality products. Bed is comfortable, we slept well.
All in all, a delightful stay. Our son, who we were visiting in Boulder, joked that we should change the locks and move in!
Michael and Dolores are wonderful guests. They left our place just as they found it. I would highly recommend them to any host.
Clean and beautiful
Lovely property close to hiking trails. All the amenities you could possibly need. Very gracious hosts!
Beautiful Property, great location, very clean and welcoming, would definitely return.
We had a fantastic visit to Boulder. The Roost is great place to stay and we would definitely return. Excellent location, north end of Boulder, quiet rural setting with great views of mountains to west, reservoir and horses out the back windows, 15 minutes to Pearl Street, access to hiking trails 100 yards away across the road. Very clean, no surprises, just as pictured and presented on the VRBO web site.
Thank you for your lovely comments.
We do hope that you will stay with us again in the future.
Very rural setting just minutes from town. Surrounded by Boulder City and County Open Space property. Just 1 minute away from Boulder Reservoir (this is normally the takeoff point for all triathlons and many running races). Eagle Trailhead directly across the street. Equi- distance from downtown Boulder and the nice, little town of Niwot. Many excellent restaurants and brew pubs located nearby.
