House Rules

To contact me before or during your travels, please message on this website, or call the 303 number. Please do not enter the gate by the mailbox; continue on Eldorado Springs Drive and turn right onto Prado Drive, then take the second right onto the driveway. The driveway is circular with a large tree in the middle. Parking is directly in front of the blacksmith shop. There are two 'apartments' in the building (they don't share a wall); the blacksmith shop is the one on the left, nearest to the driveway. Remove shoes inside by the front door. Orthopedic shoes can be worn inside. 10 pm to 7 am are quiet hours.
No late checkout; I have four listings and a high volume of reservations. Please ask about having guests over.
Smoking of any kind is outdoors only; please use the sand filled tin for butts and leave outside. Help yourself to any food in the fridge or pantry shelves. Please take your trash to the outside cans before you leave. Kindly leave the blacksmith shop clean.
We do not allow cats. Dogs are allowed and must be leashed while outside on the property. Please ask first about bringing a dog. Do not use the clean sheets, blankets and/or comforters in the brown armoire for your dog bed. Please ask and we can provide a blanket for your dog. They must be with their human companions and not left alone in the blacksmith shop for more than three hours. Writing a review is greatly appreciated! Let me know if you have any questions and suggestions; I want my guests to be comfortable and happy.

Susan's place was awesome and homey with just about everything we needed for a comfortable stay with a great view. Within easy reach of delicious food and gorgeous trails.

This AirBnb was exactly as it was described. Our stay was a lot warmer then we expected but there were fans provided which kept us cool at night. The fact that we could bring out dogs with us was the main reason we rented this place out and it worked out perfect. We also got engaged during our stay so this place will always have a special place in our hearts! We will be back!!!

We had a great airbnb experience at Susan's place! Really neat location, only a few miles from a large shopping center with everything you could possibly need but the location of the blacksmith shop was still very quaint and rural. A great location from which to explore Boulder and not too far from Rocky Mountain National Park. Plenty of room and full sized appliances. Highly recommend!

The Blacksmith Shop was exactly as described - it was clean and a great place to relax! The location worked perfectly for all we wanted to do including day trips to Rocky Mountain National Park and Red Rocks, exploring Eldorado Canyon, and spending time in Boulder! We would definitely stay there again!

Super. Wonderful house/converted space. Rustic, beautiful, and comfortable. Amazing stars at night (easy to see the Milky Way). Fun to watch the rabbits in the driveway. Susan was a terrific host. All good. Would love to get back here and stay a whole week!

We had a lovely stay here. It was clean and neat. It was close to gorgeous El Dorado Canyon State Park and a spring fed pool. Plus Susan is a kind artsy gal ;)

I am a self employed artist and have lived in this beautiful valley since 1991, with my husband, Tom, who is a ceramic artist, teacher at a local community college, and a musician.
In the past, we spent a lot of time on the road, doing art shows with our two sons, who grew up here.
I have done a lot of traveling and enjoy meeting people from all over. One of the most memorable experiences of my life was when I lived in Italy for close to a year while I was in college in the early '70's. Part of the time I lived with an Italian family in Tuscany whom I adored. I would love to return there someday.
Some of the things I enjoy are being active in the outdoors and at the gym, cooking fun and healthy foods, growing vegetables and herbs, beekeeping, dancing and playing the cello. I love to read and collect all kinds of books, including novels, non-fiction and cookbooks. One of my favorite books is The Infinite Plan, by Isabel Allende.
We have had visits in our home with many guests from all over through the years, and it has been good times. I have learned to be open to having adventures and being spontaneous. My most memorable times have not involved much planning or expense.
