A cozy bedroom offered in a sublime Boulder location. Walk directly to the foothill trails and/or all of the downtown locations. After that, feel free to use the spacious kitchen and sit by the fire!
IMPORTANT: If you make an inquiry and I do not respond within a few hours, I am not ignoring you but most likely far out in the wilderness and away from the system. I'll respond to your inquiry ASAP when I get out of the woods!
I have a fully furnished spare bedroom in a sublime Boulder location. A five minute walk leads you to multiple mountain trails or central downtown Boulder. If you're looking to stay in town and not have to drive anywhere, this is the perfect place.
The room includes full access to a large, bright, fully equipped kitchen with a gas range and convection oven. A washer and drier are available upstairs for laundry. During pleasant weather, a back patio adjacent to the kitchen with mountain views can be used for dining outdoors. Access to a WiFi internet connection capable of handling streaming movies on multiple computers is available. You may also sample my stereo and record collection.
The bedroom includes a queen size bed with a down comforter. Located upstairs and with bay-style windows, the room receives abundant light and offers great views of the Flatirons. The condo has one full and one half bathroom.
My place is on the end of a four-unit condo complex with exceptionally friendly neighbors. Street parking adjacent to the property is free and spots are always available. Across the street is Boulder Creek, a local hotspot for tubing to cool off. The Boulder Creek bicycle/running trail is also just across to street to help you get around- I use this to commute home from work. A handful of bus lines are located nearby on Canyon Avenue and the Boulder RTD Transit Center is within walking distance.
I do offer a spare bicycle for guests to get around town with. The ride is fitted for my height- about 5'9".
As for me, I work as an ecologist at a non-profit national ecological monitoring initiative. The work involves a lot of travel, so there's a good chance you'll get the condo to yourself. I typically work 9-5 and go to the gym afterwards so the unit will be open most days during the week. On weekends, I'm nearly always out backpacking in some wilderness so there's a good chance you'll have the condo to yourself then, too.
I genuinely enjoy hosting my space and meeting new people. If you're looking for recommendations on nearby trails, fly-fishing spots, restaurants or bars, I'm very happy to share my local knowledge! Boulder has fantastic options to offer on all of those fronts.
For first time Airbnb users, if you do not fill out your profile and make verifications before inquiring about a stay, the following message will be sent to you: Thank you for inquiring about the bedroom in my condo. I would be happy to consider your inquiry. However, before doing so I will have to ask that you further complete your Airbnb profile. We hosts depend on profiles, and especially verifications through social media sites, to ensure we are communicating with legitimate guests. That is why Airbnb offers so many means of verifying your account. Please do not send information about yourself to me directly, rather, use the system to develop a profile so that next time you make a reservation request the information will already be there. Please feel free to write me back once you have a complete profile and I will be happy to book your request. Thanks!
Guests have full access to my kitchen, WiFi, the patio, both bathrooms (of course), my stereo and records, and just about anything else one may need to borrow while traveling. I'm generally very open with my stuff, so if you need something peculiar, just ask!
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you'd like. I've become friends with a few guests and have gone out to meals, but I'm fine if you'd prefer to keep to yourself. If you need advice on where to go and what to do in Boulder, I'm happy to help.
The location is perfect for Boulder: you can easily walk downtown or to the lovely Sanitas Trail.
The bus depot is within walking distance of my place and the Boulder Creek bike path is just across the street (Canyon). Also, CU is within walking distance. I have a bike available for guests as well.
-Alcohol & green: perfectly OK.
-Noise levels should be kept low after 10 or 11 on weeknights.
-Dishes should be cleaned relatively soon after a meal is cooked and consumed. You're welcome to use the dishwasher.
-Respect/use recycling and compost bins.
-Smoking allowed outside only.
Ryan's place was amazing. Great location 10 mins walking to shops and restaurants and 10 mins to great hiking in the mountains. Ryan was very accommodating and let me leave my luggage there all day whilst I hiked. Thoroughly recommended!
Ryan has a beautiful home- great location for hanging out in downtown Boulder. He's got a ton of knowledge about hiking in the region (and anywhere else, probably) and was a great host. Place was super clean and quiet, too which was perfect after long days hiking.
Ryan's home was awesome! You could definitely tell he has taken a lot of pride in designing his home - it's so warm, welcoming, and very clean. The location is great - walking distance to Pearl Street and then also walking distance to Hiking Trails.
This place is exactly as described in the listing, and is as great as all the other reviewers have already said. Great location for mountains, shopping, and bus transit to elsewhere. Especially liked the fully equipped kitchen, the view, the included bicycle, and the record collection.
For anyone reading this with any doubt if it's as amazing as it seems, it is. Ryan's house is a vacation in itself. It's cozy and friendly and has tons of records, books, and nick nacks to occupy your time. It's like a walk through a museum. As a host, Ryan was wonderful. He is very cool about everything, and you are more than welcome to make his place your home in your time there. The answer to almost any request will be "yes". His neighborhood is gorgeous, the house is literally a short 10 minute walk to downtown, and just as short a walk to the mountains. Boulder is an incredible city and I wouldn't recommend experiencing it from any place other than Ryan's. I will be back without a doubt.
Ryan was a gracious and easygoing host, and his home is charming--warm, clean, green, with a bonus of a great view of the mountains. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Boulder.

I am currently an aquatic ecologist at the National Ecological Observatory Network here in Boulder, Colorado, where I've lived for about two years. I study rivers, streams, fish and aquatic organisms all over the country for my job. Most weekends I'm usually found out backpacking and/or flyfishing throughout Colorado (and elsewhere if I happen to be traveling). If you need advice on all things outdoors here, I'm a reasonable resource!
