We have lived in Boulder for 28 years and in this home for 25. We are often told we have the best house and location in Boulder. To be able to see the lake from every window, walk outside, climb the hills and still be just a few minutes from all the action downtown-- it doesn't get better than this! We remodeled it recently and it is beautiful and very comfortable.
Ourr home is a treasure we are happy to share. Mornings and evenings in the hot tub watching the changing skies. Dinner on the deck, reading napping, spending time with friends and family; or off exploring. The views from inside are always reminding us of the beauty of where we live. Our large light-filled rooms offer spaciousness and privacy while also making it easy and comfortable to be together.
Our family - eight 60 year old cousins - had a fabulous time for six days, five nights at this beautiful home in Boulder. We could not have been more pleased with the overall look and feel of the home (inside and out), the layout, the stunning views, and the quiet, peaceful nature of the location were second to none. The home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, which surprised us a bit because when we first looked at the online pictures we thought it was going to be "out in the country." Alas, once we walked into the house we were stunned to find ourselves looking out onto a glorious lake, beautiful hills, walking paths, gorgeous trees, etc. We took many walks out our backdoor and truly enjoyed being in a outdoor wonderland. What made the location nice was that we could easily go into downtown or access roads to the major attractions of this beautiful area. We cooked most every meal in and found the kitchen (as BBQ) to be very well supplied with fully functioning, up-to-date appliances. We could sit outside on the large, covered deck and feel very connected to the beautiful outdoor. All beds were very comfortable, rooms were quiet and well situated in the home. Stephano, the on-premises manager greeted us warmly upon arrival and answered all our questions perfectly. He was a great resource. He lived in a basement flat and was "invisible" throughout. Yet, we knew we could get in touch if something came up. We loved our experience and truly hope to come back. I strongly recommend.
This was a beautiful home with all the amenities we needed, and more! It's close to town, making it easy to get to Pearl Street as well as all of the other downtown restaurants, shops, etc. It's also far enough away from town to have a peaceful, quiet vacation and close enough to the mountains to take a quick drive to Rocky Mtn National Park, etc. The house was exceptionally clean and well cared for - you can tell the owners take pride in their home. Thank you Judith for allowing us to stay in your home for the week!
We renting this fantastic home for a family gathering (group of 8). It is amazing. Just as beautiful as the pictures. The house had everthing we needed, and the owners are very accomodating. The location can't be beat in my opinion. Close to Downtown Boulder, but lots of open space due to it's location on the lake. I strongly recommend this rental.
Our company used this VRBO for a multi-day senior management meeting. The location is perfect - close to both downtown Boulder and the Front Range foothills. It's in a quiet neighborhood, so noise was not an issue for our presentations and meetings. The house was spacious and well-maintained.
The owners went out of their way to accommodate our needs and ensure that the house was clean and organized upon our arrival. We would definitely stay at this location again and would recommend it to friends, family, and business contacts. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Our group of nine had a great time this past week.The proximity to the open space, Wonderland Lake, Dakota Ridge, and the playground was perfect for our 4 grandkids, ages 4 to 5. Your supply of children toys in the open living room and the morning deer sightings were unexpected bonuses, as were the spices, condiments and other home amenities. We ate all of our meals and the grandkids produced their drawings on the porch overlooking Dakota Ridge and the Wonderland Lake-no bugs. What great memories we will keep.
Our party of four adults, one 8 year-old, one 2.5 year-old, and one 6 month old had a wonderful time at this beautiful, well-maintained property. The property manager lives downstairs and is readily available if you need help (which we didn't), but you will not be aware of his presence at all. Breakfast in the kitchen or on the deck looking out over the lake was my favorite part of the day. Gigantic yoga/playroom was awesome for the kids, who spent hours rolling around on the exercise balls. There are also toys and kids books.
