About this listing
Our home is a wonderful private haven. People that visit feel we found a little piece of paradise!
This charming 100 year + farmhouse is a private retreat located in North Boulder. Enjoy easy access to DT Boulder.
Our home sits on 1/2 of an acre. The house is one of the original farm homes in the area with lots of personality! This grand ole' gal of a home is over 100 years young. Inside, you will find the original hard wood floors and doors. There are lots of mature trees and gardens of flowers. Feel free to enjoy some time on the covered front porch There's a cozy couch for reading, napping or just dreaming with a cool glass of lemonade.
The bedroom faces south with a view of the mountains when all the foliage is not grown in. It's bright and cheerful with lots of light.
There is a queen size bed and the room has a closet and lots of storage room. It is connected to a private bathroom with a walk in tiled shower with sitting benches. Towels are stocked for your bath and the pool as well as shampoo, soaps and other toiletries.
Coffee and tea are provided as well as fresh fruit and other breakfast/lunch type food for the week. If there is a particular tea/coffee you like to drink, please let us know and that will be provided as well as ice tea, water and/or soft drinks, all of your preference.
A fully stocked larder will be available. Hard boiled eggs fresh from our own chickens[ in warmer months when they are laying], muffins, bagels, lox if you like, cream cheese, nuts, popcorn, breakfast bars etc..
We know the last thing you want on your vacation is to have to be on a schedule for anything... including waking for a scheduled breakfast. That's why we stock items for you to eat on your schedule, not ours! But, we also invite all our guests to use the kitchen if you like.
The hot tub and pool are available for your use as well. We use no chemicals but only natural products to refresh both. There is a wonderfully calming and private bricked patio area in the rear of the house so you can enjoy your meals outside if you like.
In the living room, we also have a large TV screen with full channel access and a DVD for movies. This room, in addition to guest bedroom and private bath allows you to have a suite of rooms to enjoy.
The furniture in that room is Ekornes Stressless... fully chiropractic approved of course! Just kick off your shoes [please] and put your feet up on the cozy ottomans, lay back, relax and enjoy!
Bikes are provided for daytime use for our guests. It is app. a 20 min. ride to DT Boulder, 10 mins. or less if you are cranking it.
A lock is provided for the bikes. We know you will be off and on the bikes while exploring Boulder. Replacement cost is $350.00 each bike while in your care so lock em up tight if you are out and about town.
Your room has literature with "Things to Do" in Boulder including a easy to read map of the city. We do recommend a car to get around town and see all you want to see.
For longer stays of a week or more, washer and dryer are available as well as a clothes line if you prefer that fresh air smell!
Interaction with Guests
We want to give you your space and time to enjoy your privacy. However, if you need anything, we are available. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your visit a cherished memory.
The neighborhood is "old Boulder", full of towering trees and mature gardens. Just far away enough from the hubbub of town but close enough to enjoy all that Boulder has to offer!
For your safety and enjoyment,
bikes are available for use by our guests during daylight hours. Public transportation bus lines are also close by.
If arriving at the Denver Airport, you can take the AB bus line to the DT Boulder Transit station. Picking you up at the Boulder bus station can be prearranged if you like.
We are in a residential neighborhood in North Boulder so having a car is best especially in the winter months. Otherwise, during warmer weather and if you are used to riding bikes, it is an easy bike ride downtown.
