Overview

About the property

We offer an inviting, cozy studio in a duplex cabin with a complete kitchen.

Please also see sister studio, VRBO listing 1287289.

This half cabin is a great retreat just six miles from downtown Boulder. It is tucked along the walls of Boulder Canyon on Boulder Creek making it an ideal location for fly fishermen, rock climbers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts. Additionally, there are nearby opportunities for skiing, cycling and mountain biking, tubing, swimming, kayaking, and scenic touring.

The cabin is divided into two private studio apartments, each with its own entrance. The setting is wooded and includes gardens, a wood stove for campfires and outdoor cooking, and access to enjoying Boulder Creek.

There are three cabins on our property. We live in the first cabin, so we can answer guests' questions and quickly attend to guests' needs.

Our cabin is a good base camp for exploring Colorado with proximity to:

Eldora Ski Resort - 14 miles

Indian Peaks Wilderness - 18 miles

Historic casino towns, Blackhawk and Central City - 28 miles

Red Rocks Amphitheater and Performing Arts Center - 35 miles

Denver city attractions - 36 miles

Rocky Mountain National Park - 39 miles

Boulder Canyon is a magnificent natural attraction connecting the plains with the peaks of the Rockies in a short distance. At the entrance to the canyon is a park featuring enormous red rocks tilted vertically with spectacular views of the Boulder Valley.

The Boulder Creek Path, popular with cyclists and hikers, follows the creek for several miles in the canyon. A couple miles above our cabin is scenic Boulder Falls and the dramatic cliffs of The Narrows. Popular destinations for rock climbers are throughout the canyon.

Public transportation stops adjacent to our property for travel up the canyon to Nederland and Eldora ski resort or down the canyon to fine dining, boutique shopping, and entertainment in Boulder.

Jeff is a biologist and has traveled extensively around the state. He will be delighted to help you tailor your explorations and adventures to your interests. He is also familiar with the natural history of Colorado.

We welcome guests from all backgrounds and orientations. And we love to share our beautiful state with international visitors!

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay which served as a perfect home base to explore the area near and around Boulder. The hosts generously provided great information including where to eat, hike and day drives. The cabin suite was intimate and charming complete with coffee, snacks, toiletries and wood for a lovely fire! Nice place for a quick getaway!

Quaint cabin, great owners.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little cabin nestled in the canyon. Close to boulder but far enough out to get the mountain feel. The owners were great on many levels and made us feel right at home. I’d recommend to my friends.

Very special place with everything you could ever want!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. What a beautiful little cabin with everything to cozy up and enjoy time by the fire at the foot of the bed. Right on Boulder creek for fishing or reading, and close to town. No detail went unnoticed, plenty of amenities including a beautiful welcome basket which was such a thoughtful surprise! I will be back again no doubt.

Jeff and Cynthia were great hosts, gave us a basket of local goodies and even helped push our car out of an ice patch! Cabin has everything you need, cool location that takes only 10 minutes to drive from Boulder. Great stay!

Cute place to unwind and disconnect !

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable place to stay and the owners Jeff and Cindy were great to rent from. They made us feel so welcome. They helped us find places for dinner and sightseeing. We just had a couple days and it was a perfect weekend to unwind and disconnect. The bed was super comfortable we didn't want to leave. My luggage still smells like the fireplace and I hope it stays that way for a long time! Great memories!
