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 centrally located in North Boulder. Enjoy easy access to DT Boulder.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

The bedroom faces south with a view of the mountains. 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, lovely scented 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..
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 or feel free to use the kitchen.
In the living room, we also have a large TV screen with full channel access and a DVD for movies.
The furniture in that room is Ekornes Stressless... fully chiropractic approved of course!
Bikes are provided for our guests. It is about a leisurely 15 min. ride to DT Boulder, 10 mins. or less if you are cranking it. Your room has literature with "Things to Do" in Boulder including a easy to read map of the city.
We do have a washer and dryer for your use as well as a clothes line if you want to hang clothes for that fresh air smell!

Interaction with Guests

We want to give you your space and 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

The neighborhood is "old Boulder", full of towering trees and mature gardens. Just far away enough from the hubbub of town but close enough by bike to enjoy all that Boulder has to offer!

Getting around

We are in a residential neighborhood in North Boulder so having a car is best in the winter months. Otherwise, during warmer weather, it is an easy bike ride downtown.

Other Things to Note

Pool is above ground and down for season by second or third week of September. Hot tub is available all year long.

  • Becky and Barry are awesome hostesses and made our Boulder stay comfortable and relaxing. Their home is definitely a charming oasis and so accessible to about everything....mountains, hiking paths, shopping, downtown Boulder, and highways to nearby towns. We enjoyed their retreat as much as we could during the whirlwind week of visiting family and friends but their home is definitely a destination spot where we wished we had the time to have enjoyed it more, especially their backyard! We highly recommend this charming retreat, having coffee on the porch, and the fresh eggs from our roomies in the chicken coop out back!

    Warm regards,
    Georgia & Vince

  • We have traveled to Boulder many times in the past 20 years and this was the nicest place we've ever stayed. As opposed to a "breakfast" there was a pantry of food options to snack/eat as needed. It was for us a fabulous retreat. If you aren't a serious walker, you'll need wheels. They have bikes, but I wasn't up for that - too long since I'd been on one. We hope they're available next time we visit. Tom & Cindy

    Hi Tom & Cindy
    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we see you again.
    I'll be looking for another seat to add to our living room to allow more seating. Thanks for your suggestions.

  • This is our second time stay with Becky and Barry. Becky is absolutely a wonderful host. She is super friendly and very nice. She loads the pantry with all the snacks and there is always a serving of some seasonal fresh fruits. The room is kept clean and she also loads the bathroom cabinets with not just the essentials, but more than you need! You cannot go wrong in choosing this charming retreat for a wonderful stay!

  • I had a wonderful stay with Becky and Barry - they made me feel so welcome and their home is lovely. A great place to stay in Boulder :)

  • Becky and Barry were phenomenal hosts for my mother and I! Everything possible was taken care of: wonderful sleeping quarters; a fully stocked pantry and larder; a comfortable, inviting living room; and a clean, warm bathroom with towels, shampoo, soaps.

    The neighborhood is gorgeous, safe and friendly, and Becky and Barry are as nice as can be. Barry even picked us up from the transit center station in downtown Boulder! Honestly, could not have asked for better hosts or a better living situation.

  • First let me just say that I would stay with Becky and Barry any time any where! They are super hosts! Upon arriving in Boulder, Becky offered to come pick me up at the Transit Station in town which was super nice after traveling all day. A quick drive and we get to the house which is in a nice neighborhood with lots of trees. So my room has the most comfortable bed ever that was ridiculously soft and I had 8 pillows! Yea! Super nice tile bathroom/shower, closets for my stuff, it was perfect!
    So I stayed in Boulder for 5 days. They had a bike for me to ride around whenever I wanted which saved me a lot of money and really helped me get to know the city too! I ended up delaying my flight back a couple days because of weather and Becky and Barry were super flexible and let me stay another couple days! They are an interesting older couple that are super friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend staying with them, I would go again but I am moving there now!! Thank you Becky and Barry!! -Scotty

  • Our first time with AirBNB, so i was a bit apprehensive about our first trip, but Becky and Barry were great! Charming is a great way to describe their space and hospitality. A fridge full of food and a cupboard full of snacks awaited us, they were very accommodating and respectful of our space. I would definitely return for future visits and recommend them for anybody looking to travel to the boulder area. Two thumbs up!!!

    Hi Carolyn and Kyle.:
    Hope you both had a great new Years and fun trip while in Colorado. We thought about you when we were DT and went past the theatre.
    We are really glad that your first B&B trip was a great experience and that we were able to be part of that ... please come back and visit or just stop by and say HI next time you are in Boulder.

  • Becky and Barry are great, very pleasant hosts.
    Their home was lovely, the room and adjacent bathroom was very nice. Becky had the room stocked with awesome treats! Their house was 10 minutes from everywhere we wanted to go.
    We had a great time and would not hesitate to return!

  • Absolutely delightful hosts have created a warm, welcoming, and beautiful space near downtown Boulder. I had the most wonderful time talking with Becky and Barry, dancing the night away while Barry's band played, meeting their "Dixie Chicks" which laid fresh eggs for our morning breakfast, and raiding the yummy stash of snacks that Becky so thoughtfully stocked in my room. Although the Toblerone chocolates are all gone now, I'm sure they'll replenish them for the next guest! Don't miss this true gem!

  • This was our first experience with an air bnb so we didn't know what to expect. It was a pleasure meeting Barry & Becky; they were gracious and warm hosts. It was great sharing their lovely, and spotless home. The bedroom and bathroom were both clean and comfortable. The pantry in the bedroom was very well stocked. We would most definitely recommend this home to fellow travelers. It was ever so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Thank you Barry and Becky.

" Our Charming Retreat" What better way to describe this little piece of Heaven on Earth! My husband and I live on the property. He is a local chiroprator and I manage a locally owned Danish Furniture store. We love to enjoy all that Boulder has to offer such as biking, hiking, working in our lovely gardens and listening to music. We love the restful tranquility of our home and enjoy sharing this treasure with others and meeting all our interesting guests! Barry and Becky
