Greetings travelers and welcome to Riverside Round House Retreat! Our one of a kind destination, located at the base of the foothills of Boulder Colorado, has just been expanded to include a retreat space (large open 19x25 room) with extra beds & amenities. We can sleep 14 guests (7 beds) and upon request can host small gatherings with additional guests (for an additional party fee), making this the perfect destination for business travelers, large family trips, and any kind of retreat!
The Round House Retreat is the perfect space for those who want the best of both worlds - a quiet and comfortable getaway close to the mountains, yet only a few minutes away from downtown Boulder fun.The house was built in the '70s and has recently not only been fully remodeled and modernized with brand new appliances and amenities, but has also just been expanded to include a huge addition that can comfortably accommodate larger groups of up to 14 overnight guests and small gatherings as well.
Sleeping accommodations include 3 bedrooms inside the Round House (1 King, 1 Queen, and 1 Full size), one large private bedroom in the addition (Queen), and 3 sleeper sofas (2 Queen, 1 King size). The Master bedroom features a shoji or Japanese rice paper sliding door. It also has its own private garden and patio, perfect for a quiet morning coffee. The other bedrooms include closets and individual entrances to maximize privacy for all of our guests.
There are 3 full baths available making it easy for everyone to get adequate bathroom time! The brand new bathroom, just off the additional bedroom, has a new large Japanese style tub that is perfect for a good soak. The Master bathroom is equipped with a fully enclosed steam shower!!!
The upstairs floor plan is bright and open with vaulted ceilings and large windows. The kitchen comes fully equipped with new appliances, amenities, and utensils to accommodate 14 guests and possibly more if necessary for a gathering. A custom built, solid wood, breakfast bar (4 seats) separates the kitchen from the living and dining area. On the other side of the bar is a large solid wood table (8 seats) and dining area which features a gorgeous antique wood burning stove. The living room area has a lounge space with couch and chairs, a flat screen TV with cable access, and several board games and reading materials available.
Step outside onto the wrap around deck overlooking the creek with mountain views. If the weather allows it (315 sunny days a year!), there are outdoor dining options on both the upper deck and lower level flagstone patio.
In the spring, you can enjoy the beautiful mountain flora that grows by the creek, the summer brings on the best for grilling and relaxing on the grapevine shaded balcony, the fall brings about currants and other edible berries along with turning leaves, and the winter snows create a quite, warm and cozy retreat with multiple wood burning stoves.
***On occasion we can accommodate smaller groups of up to 8 in the round house only ($400 weekday, $450 weekend rate).
Please Note: This property was affected by the fall 2013 flooding in Boulder. Though the house itself is fully restored and in perfect working condition with various upgrades, the downstairs and surrounding property will not look exactly as pictured. The interior layout, furniture, materials and flooring are the same or better than what is currently pictured. The exterior is more of a work in progress with vegetation and greenery in the process of being restored - though functional and enjoyable all the same! Feel free to contact us for more details.
