About this listing
Enjoy our beautiful garden and comfortable rooms. The suite includes a breakfast room and two bedrooms. It is one flight upstairs to the bathroom. Our quiet neighborhood is a quick 10-minute walk to Pearl Street Mall and the Boulderado Hotel.
Our space is clean, private, spacious, and very comfortable. The suite contains one room with a queen bed plus and adjoining room with a full-sized futon (upgraded for comfort). The two rooms can be separated by a sliding shoji-screen wall. In addition to the two sleeping rooms, the suite contains a sunny breakfast room with a bistro table, small fridge, coffee maker, microwave and garden view. A variety of cereals (including gluten-free options), hard-boiled eggs, and coffee/tea will be available along with occasional seasonal offerings. You will have to be able to negotiate stairs because there are both outside steps and an internal staircase to reach the private (used ONLY by our guests) bathroom. (Please see description below regarding bathroom access).
The BnB suite has it's own entrance at garden level--from street-level you will descend down multiple steps to the backyard entrance. Our guests are welcome to use the backyard garden/gazebo for eating, relaxing, socializing. The private bathroom (guest use exclusively) is the only part of the suite that is located upstairs in the host-part of the house. It is about 10 feet from the top of the stairs and you will need to pass by our kitchen/living room to get there. We try to help our guests to feel a high-level of privacy and we use folding room-dividers at the top of the stairs to increase separation between our space and yours.
Interaction with Guests
We will be present during all stays in our home. We have lived in Boulder for over 30 years, know our way around, and are happy to interact or observe privacy at whatever level our guests desire.
Our neighborhood is quiet and tucked-away; even many long-time Boulderites don't know it is here, in the heart of downtown! Because we are so close to Pearl St. with it's many restaurants, Farmer's Market, and music venues, you can walk just about anywhere you want to go.
We live on a hill so coming home is always an uphill walk. To get to the SKIP or HOP buses (to take you to the University or Chautauqua Park) it is a 10-minute walk downhill to Broadway bus stops. We provide off-street parking in our driveway. Our location is considered one of the best in Boulder; you can get everywhere from here without a car!
Other Things to Note
While we do not allow guest-pets, a visit with us means that you will get to know sweet Caile ("kay-lee"), our 13 year-old golden retriever/chow mix. She is very mellow but definitely likes to meet and greet everyone who enters the house.
Ours is a quiet, non-smoking, drug-free home. We ask that you observe these limits while you are staying with us.
There are house-rules, along with additional information, posted in the breakfast room. Please take time to read these when you arrive. Thank you.
