Located in the historic Eldorado Springs Valley is our authentic 19th century blacksmith shop, aka "Home on the Front Range." We have remodeled it into a unique getaway. Just minutes south of Boulder, you will find gorgeous views and nature surrounding you, from horses in the pasture next door to the local wildlife, such as deer, fox, and owl.
This special place has its own unique character and all the comforts of home. It is private, spacious (675 sq. ft.) and very quiet at night. You can see the stars.
The bedroom has a picture window with a stunning view, queen pillow top bed, and a beautiful sliding barn door. The entire place is new construction and I continue to add and embellish with art and color. The futon couch unfolds into a bed for an extra person or small children. There are two living room areas, a skylight, kitchen, TV and DVD player, internet access, and a small patio area and parking right in front. The natural light inside is beautiful.
A fantastic trail system is just minutes away. Enjoy hiking, running, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing, depending on the season. Two miles down the road from here is Eldorado Canyon, which features Eldorado State Park where hiking, world class rock climbing and scenic vistas happen. Also located in the canyon is the Eldorado Springs Pool, a wonderful artesian spring fed pool, so refreshing and fun in the summertime. Downtown Boulder seems a world away, although it is actually a 5-10 minute drive. There are bike paths all the way into town.
We are both artists and our home and studio are on the property. Feel free to come by the house anytime during your stay to chat and visit. We know a lot about the area and can help with ideas about things to do. We'd love to have you as our guests!
Susan and Tom were very welcoming and the reinvented Blacksmith Shop was great! We had a cozy time in the quaint space drinking tea, eating the treats Susan left, and also chatting and reading on the comfy furniture! We would recommend this place to anyone!
Loved staying at Susan's place, we're just sorry it was only for one night! It was plenty warm when we arrived, and it provided much more space than we expected. The pictures really didn't do it justice, very quaint and cozy place. Thanks Susan!
Great place! Tom and Susan were great hosts and very easily accessible. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the shower pressure/temp perfect. We would definitely recommend this stay.
Susan is kind, generous, and flexible - and I look forward to staying again. The Blacksmith Shop is fabulous - stunning views and wonderful accommodations. 5 Stars all around!!!
Susan's place was great and as advertised. Really nice location. I would definitely stay there again.
Great spot. Quiet, nestled at the foot of the mountains. Really great place to relax and unwind. Susan was a great host and all of the accommodations were perfect.
