Boulder Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Note: Please see below for general rates!

The unique aspect of this chalet style mountain home is its beautiful serene and scenic location.

The choice is yours whether you prefer to simply relax without a care in the natural quietude under the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains, or engage in the numerous mountain activities at your doorstep. The right combination of both is waiting for you.

Sip your favorite refreshment in the large hot tub, while enjoying the mountain views all around you. A baby grand, drums and guitar are included for the musically inclined. A large fireplace will keep you toasty in the winter, and a large ceiling fan and gentle mountain breezes will keep you comfortable in the summer. There is no need for superficial air conditioning since mother nature provides it all.

While the city of Boulder is accessible in twenty minutes for the normal amenities such as dining, theater, music, sightseeing, and shopping, - - - the town of Nederland is only ten minutes away for satisfying basic needs. Sugarloaf Mountain Rd, which will bring you to the house, is maintained year round for safe access and driving. (By the way, the route that Mapquest usually designates for you is actually twice as long as the local route.) Directions for the local route are included in the Registration materials you will receive.

Ski resorts are within ten to ninety minutes away. Mountain Lakes, fishing, hunting and camping are just minutes away. Be it summer or winter activities, this site offers it all.

Small special occasion 'events' like birthday parties, showers, weddings may be held here with the owners approval only. Contact owner for rates and info.

Keywords: Ranch style, Mountain Chalet, Serene, Private, Scenic

About Claude 'Larry' Fox

A Colorado native, I've lived in all parts of the state. I know what I love about Colorado and I spent years searching for the location that has it all. Well, when I found this home, I spent one hour without saying a word looking it over, then when the owner said 'What do you think?', I said 'Sold.' And I've been sold on it ever since. I actually get excited with the thought of vacation renters enjoying my place. (No, I do not stay here when it is rented to you.) I love sharing the specialness of my home. Everything special about Colorado is within immediate reach from this location. The dramatic and rugged wilderness of the Continental Divide, to the cultured sophisticated amenities of the City of Boulder. Anything you're in the mood for is only minutes away.

Claude 'Larry' Fox purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Claude 'Larry' Fox chose Boulder

As I said in my profile, I bought this home because in itself and in its surroundings, it constitutes the best of Colorado. This is my home and not merely a 'rental', but of course I do not stay here when I rent it out to you..

What makes this chalet unique

In the summer I love the balmy gentle warm breezes so much that I never want to go to bed.

In the winter the snow is beautiful and the elk herd that surrounds the house is a real treat to see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here for my husband's 40th birthday. From the welcome basket to having a house full of everything - your hospitality was appreciated. Hiking during the day, jam sessions by night. A real treat! Thanks.

Cozy, clean mountain house with generous, attentive owner

  • 4 of 5
We did our homework before booking this house. Read the fairly numerous good reviews and studied the profile carefully. To our satisfaction, the reviews were spot on, and the description was as well!

The house is very roomy and clean. Nothing fancy...but who needs fancy when you are staying in the rustic mountains? The large deck that surrounds almost the entire house is great. Not to mention the very large hot tub, which our kids especially (surprise!) enjoyed! The drive up to the house is nice because towards the end, the paved road turns into a dirt one...to us making it all the more "mountain-y" feeling, lol!

When driving up to this house, make sure you do not take the first dirt driveway up to the house, (like we did), but the second one, which goes around to the front of the house. The first driveway is for the caretaker that lives on the bottom level of the house. We were just a teeny weeny uncomfortable with having a stranger living in the same house (although his quarters are blocked from the rest of the house on the inside), but the man living there seemed pretty nice, and was only there in the evenings. He does seem to take care of the property, and is there to fix anything that might need attention...although everything was working pretty well during our stay. We did mention to the owner that the dryer did not dry the clothes all the way, so he is looking into that.

This house had everything we needed (and wanted) to have a nice, relaxing, family time just outside of Boulder....with beautiful views of the mountains from the front of the house! We would definitely go back!!

Great views very rustic

  • 5 of 5
This was a WONDERFUL house for us. Way out in the country with beautiful views and plenty of room for 5 teenagers and 4 adults. Very peaceful, quiet and off the beaten track. We all loved it. Breakfast on the deck every morning. It was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed including a hot tub for after horseback riding. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place to go. The owner and caretaker where very friendly and helpful. Thanks Larry I hope we can get back again.

Wonderful Escape!

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of eight, and we enjoyed every minute! Larry (The owner) left goodies, and cute notes around the house! The fireplace, hot tub, piano and drum set made for many memorable moments! Then, you are only 25 minutes or so from downtown Boulder! There was plenty of space for everyone, and the loft and treehouse made us all feel like kids again! The view from the HUGE deck is amazing! Don't miss out on this opportunity if you like adventure! (You may hear wolves/coyotes at night and possibly see bears or more!) We can't wait to go back again!!!! Thank you so much Larry!

We had a great family vacation. We enjoyed your cabin and bushwacking in the forest. Nice meeting you and Jordan. Thanks for everything, the cabin was very nice and it was in a nice quiet location.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5
This property is high and remote ... a plus for some, but also difficult to get to And: the windows do not lock, the blinds or drapes do not cover the windows and we did not feel secure. This house has 3 bedrooms and a loft but only 1.5 baths ... NOT 2 as expected. There is much deferred maintenance and the beds are old and worn. We were very disappointed the owner had personal items throughout and it felt more like he had just left for the weekend than a VRBO house ... Including food in the fridge, personal hygiene items in the bathroom, clothes in the closets and more. This was not our usual VRBO experience by any means. This really is not a rental ready property

Owner's Response: I always feel badly if a person does not appreciate my home and the effort I take to make it nice for them. As described, it is not an empty commercial rental unit. It is my home. Although not needed, locks are provided for all windows and two of the four beds are expensive state of the art beds. I welcome all questions one may have when inquiring about my place. It's of course important to read the entire VRBO information. Just call if you wish to ask specific questions. Thank you.

Great Mountain Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here on a recent visit to the University in Boulder. Larry could not have been more accommodating or helpful. We enjoyed the escape from the city and the serenity of the hot tub and fireplace very much. I would recommend this beautiful home to any group traveling to the area, from a couple to an entire family.

Cross Country skiing and Snow-shoe hiking can be done out of the house on National Forest Land where there are old mining and logging roads which provide a good path for these activities. The caretaker, Spencer, is a professional fly fisherman and can advise you and/or book you for guided fly fishing. A trip down Boulder Canyon is a worthwhile and scenic ride. There are brooks, rivers and lakes in the area.

Notes:
A carpeted tree house is available for the young and/or young at heart, An extremely nice caretaker resides on premises in a separate unit on the lower level and is available most mornings and weekends to help you with any emergencies which may arise, or house function problems you may have. He is totally respectful of your presence, is unobtrusive, and is only present during the evenings and weekends. The house is independent of everything except electricity. Therefore, if anything should go awry it is important in the owner's absence that a caretaker is available to resolve the problem. If for any reason he is not immediately available, you can reach the owner by phone who will then arrange for alternative assistance. Although a four wheel drive is not a requirement it is recommended that you have one during the winter months. Although the main road is a school bus route and is therefore always maintained, a four wheel drive will take the worry out of handling the snow.
