About this listing
Our 506 sq. ft. contemporary executive home is nestled on a 3/4 acre lot within the city limits of Boulder. The location is adjacent to Sanitas hiking trails, bike path, trail running and the outdoors. Nearby, you'll find shops, restaurants, dining and entertainment. We are less than 2 miles to downtown Pearl Street. Our place is good for couples and solo adventurers. One king size bed is the only place for sleeping. The couch and floor are not suitable for a third person.
It's an amazing property! Virtually impossible not to be happy when you walk inside. Note, that the recently built tiny house is a high-end model with leather sofa, king bed, formaldehyde-free cabinets, Eco-Friendly, with deluxe amenities.
The house sits parallel to an Airstream parked on the lot and has west views of the hills flanking Mt. Sanitas. There are numerous pine trees and a meadow-like feel to enjoy. A lush lawn is located to the north of the house. There's an outdoor dining table, plus lounge furniture and an outdoor grill. The patio sits below a built in hot tub and swim spa. The trailhead is just on the edge of the property, behind the two person hammock, positioned between the pine trees. We love that there is an outdoor shower for cooling off after a bike ride, run or hike.
Interaction with guests
Our goal is to be available to our guests during their stay. In the event that we are traveling ourselves, we'll have a point-of-contact and/or be available by cell. As owners, we are very upbeat and welcoming and enjoy meeting interesting people. Often, we are pre-occupied with our own work, projects and activities and can be hands-off during guest's stay.
Other things to note
A coffee pot, ground beans and sweetners are stocked in the house. Guests should plan on bringing their own creamers/milk. If you want the Boulder coffee shop experience, the nearest espresso-cafe is Lucky's Bakehouse and Creamery a mile away at 3960 Broadway. This shopping center is our favorite. Liquor store, couple great restaurants and neighborhood natural food-market.
Another coffee shop option is Vic's at 2680 Broadway. This strip-mall coffeehouse provides espresso & more for the laptop crowd, but WiFi after 11 AM only.
Since we live full-time in the home when it's not rented as an Airbnb, we have all our personal food-items in the cabinets. Please use your best judgement to not double dip with fingers, lick, drink out of cartons, etc.
The owners drink the city water from the tap. No water filter is available.
Bike Rentals - We recommend two places to get set up with a bike rental during your stay: University Bicycles at 839 Pearl St; and Boulder Cycle Sport at 4580 Broadway.
Fall Activities in Boulder
Every fall, the cottonwoods, aspen, maples and other trees in and around Boulder put on a dazzling autumn show. Crimson and golden leaves float down to be whisked away by Boulder Creek and set the foothills aglow with brilliant color. Here’s a short guide to enjoying fall foliage — and fall events — in Boulder.
The Best Time for Spring & Fall Colors in Boulder
While the exact timing is different each year, the spring green is mid June & the fall foliage in Boulder tends to be best Sept. 27–Oct. 25, and it’s at its very best Oct 5–20. If you want to capture that quintessential Colorado photograph of the golden trees against a snow-capped mountain peak, nearby Long’s Peak usually gets its first snowfall around Oct 5–20.
Where to Go
Here are just a few ideas on where to see the colors in and around Boulder.
Boulder Creek Path: Trees tend to grow tall on the banks of the Boulder Creek, and the Boulder Creek Path, a 5-mile trail that winds through the middle of town and up into beautiful Boulder Canyon, makes for a great fall ride. Highlights along the path include Scott Carpenter Park, Central Park and Eben G. Fine Park.
Mapleton Hill: One of Boulder’s most historic and beautiful neighborhoods bursts with color each year. Stroll Mapleton Avenue between Broadway and 4th Streets to admire the stately homes and old-growth trees.
Mesa Trail: The south end of the Mesa Trail is a great place to walk among the turning leaves. Yellow cottonwoods and red sumac are prevalent in this area. The trailhead is on north side of Eldorado Springs Drive.
Wonderland Lake: A gentle loop trail at Wonderland Lake provides reflecting views of the golden cottonwoods and the Flatirons in the distance.
Peak-to-Peak Byway: For a scenic fall drive from Boulder, take Canyon Blvd. west up to Nederland and you’ll hit Hwy. 72, part of the Peak-to-Peak Scenic and Historic Byway. The byway runs from Black Hawk to Estes Park, and is one of the best places in Colorado to see fall colors. If you take Hwy. 72 north and continue north on Hwy. 7, there are plenty of places to explore along the way, such as charming Allenspark, where the sweeping Wild Basin is filled with quaking aspen against a snow-peaked backdrop, and Estes Park, a tourist destination in itself and a gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Then loop back down to Boulder via Hwy. 36 through the charming town of Lyons.
