The Roost is a 900 sf private living space. The open floor plan has large windows on three sides The property is surrounded by Boulder Open Space. The views will be hard to beat. It backs up to Boulder Reservoir and has open views to the Boulder Foothills and Flatirons. The setting is country and peaceful yet only 7 miles to the center of Boulder. The open floor plan has large windows on 3 side to allow natural light to flow in. It has its' own private drive and entrance. The studio has a king size bed, living area, large flat screen TV and kitchenette. The bathroom is large with a walk-in shower. There is a wrap-around porch for enjoying the outdoors, barbecue and views. Boulder Eagle Trailhead is directly across the street and provides extensive hiking and links to many other trails in Boulder. You will love the peaceful view out back of the horses and water. We have installed an osprey platform and are anxiously awaiting a pair to take up roost. Most of the races that take place at the reservoir use this road as part of the running route. Many world class athletes train on this road.

About Carol Haile
Tom has lived in Colorado most of his life. He enjoys downhill skiing and climbing 14'ers. Carol has lived in Colorado for many years, but hails from Miami, FL. She enjoys gardening and horseback riding in the mountains of Colorado. Tom and Carol both enjoy traveling.
Carol Haile purchased this Studio in 1996
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.

Loved our stay at the Roost!
My husband and I are so grateful we were able to stay at the Roost while visiting our daughter during Parent's weekend. We could not have asked for a more comfortable and beautiful home base during our 5 day visit. Carol and Tom have thought of everything and we especially loved the homemade cookies left for us. We hope to return next year for Parent's weekend.

We loved it.
Carol was our main contact. She was so helpful both before we arrived, during and after. The studio was very large and beautiful and very quiet. The views of horses and Boulder Reservoir were wonderful and we were very close to Tink’s family and other relatives. We will definitely stay at the Roost again!
Thank you both, Carol and Tom, for the wonderful way you furnished,
And decorated the Roost.
Robin and Tink
Beautiful and peaceful!
Wonderful place to stay. We definitely will be returning!
This is an amazing place. Peaceful and perfectly situated for a view of the mountains and the reserv
Our hostess is so wonderful in that she never intrudes on your privacy but does not mind answering questions or being very helpful in every way.
We had homemade cookies and fresh vegetables delivered to our door.
In addition, she has thought of every amenity one would ever need.
We hope to come back every year.
A Place in Paradise!!!
This by far was one of the best Home Away properties we have ever vacationed at. The view was incredible, the owners were the best. We did day excursions and came back to The Roost in the evenings and cooked on the grill, drank our wine and just took in the beautiful view. If you hike or bike, there are trails directly across the street from the Roost. It is only minutes from downtown Boulder. And not very far into Denver. We absolutely loved our stay at The Roost and if we are ever back in that area, we know exactly where we will be staying. Thanks again for a wonderful trip!!!
Gail and Bryan,
You were our favorite guests! We loved that you enjoyed our porch and cooked on the grill. I hope that if you ever make it back to Boulder that you will contact us.
Thank you for the nice review.
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.
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.
