About this listing

This 500 square-foot garden level suite is completely private and includes 2 bedrooms, a bathroom with spa tub, a family room with wet bar, toaster, coffee maker and small refrigerator. There is also a 51" hi def TV and wireless internet access.

The space

This 500 square-foot garden level suite is completely private and includes two bedrooms:
Bedroom #1 has a Queen-sized pillow-top mattress and padded mattress cover. Guests have commented on the comfort of both the bed and the bedding. The bedroom includes a wall-to-wall closet with lots of hangars, extra blanket and pillow, a space heater and a clothes hamper. There is also a bathrobe if you need one and forgot yours. Need more than one bedroom? Bedroom #2 also has a queen-sized bed and is available for an additional $10 per night. Whoever sleeps in that bedroom gets to share it with a treadmill. It's the extra bedroom/workout room!

The family room has a 51-inch Hi Def TV, fridge, wet bar, coffee maker, K-cup coffee maker, toaster and microwave. If you wake up at 5:00 AM and want to make yourself a cup of coffee and watch TV, no one upstairs will hear you!

We have satellite TV and a DVR so you can record and watch your favorite shows.

There is WiFi for convenient internet access and you are also welcome to use our printer/fax/copier.

Full, private bath with a spa tub that includes Jacuzzi jets and a shower. The bathroom has a cabinet stocked with anything you might have forgotten including toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, shaving cream, shampoo, crème rinse, etc. Supplies also include a hair dryer, curling iron and diffuser for the curly haired!

Do you like to walk? We have lots of open space with trails for walking right behind the house.

It's just a short walk from our house to the City of Lafayette Rec Center (1200 steps according to my pedometer). The Rec Center includes all the usual exercise equipment, plus a large pool, a "river walk" with a current that you can walk with or against, a kiddie pool and two jacuzzis, racquetball and basketball courts, locker rooms and showers. No membership is required; you can pay by the visit and still enjoy all of the facilities and equipment.

Within a mile or so of our house: a full sized grocery store, library, two coffee shops, Wal-Mart, Chili's restaurant and several local restaurants. Old town Lafayette which has shops, restaurants an ice cream store and art studios is within walking distance.

If you are having coffee at the little table on the front porch or on our deck, you will probably be entertained by the rabbits and squirrels running back and forth and up and down the trees.

We have a ten-year old, friendly, Chocolate Lab. She greets guests by barking enthusiastically because Labs think everyone is their new best friend. She won't jump on you and calms down completely within a couple of minutes of your arrival. She does not go downstairs (unless invited by a guest) and has NEVER been on the downstairs couch or beds. However, if you are absolutely NOT a dog person, this may not be the best listing for you.

Speaking of stairs, there are 14 stairs down to the suite; seven stairs to the landing and seven more to get downstairs. There is no direct access to the suite other than the stairs. If stairs are a problem for you, this would not be a good place to stay. :(

Check-in is at 3:00 PM and check out is at 11:00 AM. This is can be VERY flexible based on whether or not other guests are leaving or arriving on the same day you get here or depart. If you are going to be arriving after 9:00 PM please be aware that we might not still be up. We can leave the front door unlocked for you; the stairs down to the suite are about 10 feet from the front door so letting yourself in and finding the suite is easy. If you are comfortable with that, it's okay with us. Once you have checked in you will get a key to the house and can come and go as you like.

Very quiet area and even more so at night.

Convenient street parking just across from our house.

We live about 9 miles from Boulder. It's an easy drive from here and usually takes 15-20 minutes. We are between Boulder and DIA so if you are flying in or out, you are 15-20 minutes closer to DIA!

Our neighborhood is extremely quiet. Very few children live here and the only traffic is from residents, because the street going in and out is not a through street.

Downtown Lafayette is an easy walk from here and there is nearby bus service to and from Boulder.

If you are visiting someone in the area and want them to check us out before you commit to a reservation, they are welcome to schedule a tour of the suite with us.

We enjoy having guests and will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable while you are here.

Guest access

In addition to the suite downstairs, you may use our laundry room with washer and dryer. We will also share our laundry soap and dryer sheets!

Interaction with guests

There is no private entrance. You leave and enter through our front door and then go downstairs to your private suite. Once you have checked in, you are free to come and go without knocking. I leave the front door unlocked when guests are out, but I will also give you a key if you want the reassurance of having one. If we are home when you leave and return we will greet you and say goodbye to you. After that it's up to the guest. We have been invited downstairs for a glass of wine and have invited guests upstairs to have dinner with us. Other guests come and go and we hardly see them. Whatever the guests want is okay with us. Once you have checked in, don't worry about coming home late and bothering us if we are asleep. We won't hear you. The dog sleeps in the bedroom with us and is used to people coming and going. She and won't pay any attention to you if we are all asleep in the bedroom.

Other things to note

You will be arriving to a spotlessly clean suite. While you are here, I clean as follows:
Daily: Trash emptied; Weekly: I wash the bedding, towels and washcloths; clean the bathroom and wet bar area; vacuum all rooms.

You will not find a more comfortable and well appointed place to stay in Lafayette. Ginger and Greg are delightful and gracious hosts and no detail is overlooked to make sure your visit to their very private downstairs suite is the best that it can be.

This place is superb! From the gracious and warm welcome from Ginger, Greg & Nikki to the well appointed suite. In your private sitting room you'll find a well stocked snack bar with fridge, microwave & coffee maker, a large TV and L-shape couch. The bath has a jetted tub and all needed toiletries (more than you find at any hotel) The bedroom had a comfortable bed and plenty of space for your stuff. This place will be hard to beat. It would be well worth your time to stay at Gingers place.

This stay exceeded my expectations. I read the prior reviews and was expecting a comfortable space and friendly hosts. What I did not expect was the extras that Ginger provided. A fruit plate upon arrival. A refrigerator stocked with water, juice, creamer and cheese. The bathroom had wonderful aromatic soaps and shampoos, and pretty much anything else one might forget to bring. I highly recommend Ginger & Gregs place.

My husband and I stay here every time we visit our children in Colorado. We love the location. Ginger and Greg are lovely hosts.

Ginger was an amazing host and the rooms were beautifully decorated. Necessities were all provided and we were really comfortable. One of the best Airbnb's we've ever stayed in!

Ginger User ProfileGinger is a superhost.

My husband Greg and I moved to Colorado from California in January 2010. We absolutely love our house and our surroundings. The weather is beautiful and every sunrise and sunset is a different show of beautiful sky and clouds.

Greg is a project manager for a small software company that writes software for oil companies to measure their emissions to meet EPA requirements. I am retired from many things including my own business teaching computer literacy classes to seniors.

We both love to read, take long walks in our open space with our chocolate labs, go hiking, go out to dinner and go to movies. We particularly prefer Indie films.

Greg is also an accomplished pianist who composes and plays his own music and has released three CDs.

We are very easygoing hosts and no one has ever left here without loving the experience of staying in our private suite downstairs. We have a guest book for everyone to sign when we leave and the comments we have received so far are all great reviews. We love having guests and have no problems making people feel comfortable.
