Enjoy the foothills of Boulder in this beautiful, gated home just 15 minutes from downtown Boulder. This lovely 1500+ square foot, ground floor apartment is very private and completely independent from the rest of the house where we live. The apartment has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a family room, and living (URL HIDDEN) is a king-size bed in one bedroom, a queen size in the other, and a queen and two extra-long twins in the third bedroom. Crib and high chair can be provided if need. We also have several bicycles that our guests are welcome to use while they stay with us.
The floor plan is open, with lots of windows and French doors leading to the private patio where you can enjoy grilling and eating al fresco. Within a just a few miles of the house are hiking trails, some of the best biking in the world, superb motorcycling, the Boulder Reservoir for swimming, Rocky Mountain National Park, and skiing in Eldora in the winter. CU is only 20 minutes away and Lyons, home of some of Colorado’s best festivals is just 10 minutes down the road.
In addition to a fully equipped kitchen, the apartment includes its own washer and dryer, two fireplaces (one gas, one wood), and beautiful views in every direction. It’s a wonderful retreat in all seasons.
Complete access to the ground level apartment and the yard.
Interakcija s gostima
Since we live in the upper level, guests will be able to access us if they have any questions or concerns.
The property is gated so guests will be given the use of a gate opener during their stay. The entire property is fenced and our dogs are kept in a separate fenced in area.
We want you to feel at home while you are staying with us and only ask that you follow a few simple rules:
1.Check out time is 11:00. Check in time is 4:00. In most cases if you need a little extra time or want to arrival a bit earlier we can accommodate you but please let us know if advance.
2.Please do not open any of the gates to let the dogs out of their confined areas. If you want to meet them we will be happy to introduce you.
3.Please do not smoke inside or outside the house. Colorado has legalized marijuana but we prefer not to have it used on our property. And, of course, illegal drugs are not acceptable at any time.
4.Because we have 4 dogs we prefer that our guests do not bring their pets. We may make exceptions in certain circumstances but please ask first.
5.We kindly ask that you keep the noise down after 10:00 pm.
6.Please be sure that the grills are turned off when you are finished using them. At certain times of the year fire is a real danger here in the foothills.
7.We understand that you might want to have guests visit while you are here. Please let us know if advance. Space and parking are limited and we do want to respect our neighbors.
8.We will do our best to keep the dogs from barking but let us know if there is a time when you need the house to be very quiet (like when the baby is napping) and we will find a way to keep them quiet.
9.Often we have guests coming in the afternoon that you depart so before you leave it would be very helpful if you could:
•Remove sheets and pillow cases from the beds that you use. Just leave them on the beds. We will take it from there, unless you have a desperate need to do laundry.
•Put dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start it up. If you don’t have time, don’t worry.
•Pile the used towels in the utility room. We will take care of them.

My husband John and I are retired. We both owned our own businesses and now love to travel and meet new people. We are motorcyclists (I'm new at it) and scuba divers and in the last couple of years have ridden in Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, and Morocco and dove in Grand Cayman. I am an avid photographer and you will find a few of my pictures hanging in the apartment. We have four dogs, all adopted from local area shelters and foster homes. I love to cook and John loves to eat so we are a perfect match. We moved to Boulder in 2007 after living most of our adult lives in the Washington DC area. John is an original from Wyoming so moving to Colorado was a homecoming for him. As new hosts we want as much feedback as we can get to make sure that our guests feel at home. I love John's life motto--Life is not a dress rehearsal.
John is fairly fluent in Spanish and I'm working on it. He also speaks a little Russian and is learning Slovene.
