ARTIST'S RETREAT ON BOULDER CREEK

Boulder Studio Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6) on Boulder Creek

Our Canyon Retreat on Boulder Creek is located at the western edge of Boulder, 5 minutes from Pearl Street Mall surrounded by Open Space. The Studio has its own private entrance through an arbor from the ample parking area. And it's just 30 minutes from Eldora Mountain Ski Resort!

The first floor has a small kitchen, bathroom with shower, dining area and living room. There are two pull-out sofa beds for 2 extra guests. The entertainment center has a Blueray DVD player, ROKU for access to Netflix, Angry Birds, Amazon for movies, TV series, as well as Pandora for your choice in music. TV access is though Xfinity and includes movies from On Demand (we do not charge for movies). There is also high-speed wireless internet access for your laptops. French doors open on to your large private deck overlooking the creek, with tables, chairs and a gas barbecue.

On the second floor a wall of glass affords a fabulous view of the creek and canyon walls. There is a queen bed and also a futon -- perfect for children who might not want to stay down stairs. There is also a second bathroom with shower and a large closet.

The large deck is fenced and gated for your dogs. There is a mulched 'potty place' and water bowls just for them. For more exercise, they can play with or without ours in the one acre fenced 'front' yard or you can take them for a Bike Path walk or hike the trails.

The Boulder Bike Path just beyond your front door offers miles of trails for biking and running (3 bikes, helmets and locks are available for your use), Settlers' Park, Flagstaff Mountain and Chautauqua trailheads are all near, and Boulder Canyon Drive leads to the Indian Peaks Wilderness, Eldora Mountain Ski Resort and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Or -- just relax on the deck with a glass of wine and watch the creek flow by -- with an occasional kayak in Spring. If you are a winter visitor, it is a bit like being in an ice castle, with the creek running between small ice cliffs. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing opportunities are close by, and we are only about 25 miles from Eldora Mountain -- home of the CU National Championship ski team.

We look forward to sharing this truly unique setting with you!

Keywords: Two-story artist's retreat with breathtaking views, right on Boulder Creek yet just steps from the Bike Path. Less than a mile to Pearl Street's restaurants and shops, you'll feel invitingly secluded, surrounded by water and Boulder Canyon's pine-covered mountains. And just 30 minutes to Eldora Ski Resort!

About Dorothy Tucker

Our family of 6 began in Pasadena CA but careers in marketing and arts management took us to Old Greenwich CT and NYC. For college, two of our children, Craig and Katie chose CU. We all fell in love with Boulder! While visiting them one weekend, Charlie and I took our dogs for a walk up the Bike Path and paused on the old creek bridge. There we saw an old house on a pond, surrounded by water and, lo and behold, a 'for sale' sign! And, of course we bought it right then and there! Architectural design had been an avocation of ours for many years, so as soon as possible, NYC was in our rear view mirror and Tucker Design Associates, as well as Tucker Walker Group Real Estate were born in Boulder! Our children are grown now and have families of their own, so we don't need the Studio space year around and are very happy to share it with you!

Dorothy Tucker purchased this studio in 1990

Why Dorothy Tucker chose Boulder

The property feels remote, far from civilization - surrounded by water, pines, cottonwoods and ever-changing patterns of light on the canyon walls, yet it is five minutes from shopping, world class restaurants, the CU campus, Chautauqua concerts in the summer and skiing Eldora in the Winter!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I can't heap enough praise on this extra-special, tucked-away spacious studio right on the creek but just a few heartbeats from the center of everything Boulder has to offer. I immediately felt at home with all conveniences, amenities and the most gracious of hosts any traveler could hope for. All I can add is please pick your dates and book it quickly before this secluded paradise really gets discovered!"

Serene setting for a lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5
I stayed for 2 weeks in August to get away from the heat in Phoenix. The studio is very roomy for one. I found the deck area particularly relaxing. It was secured for my little dog to be able to roam and play and chase squirrels. It also provided a cool and peaceful break from downtown Boulder. I loved the constant sound of Boulder Creek and the quick access to the walking path. The Studio was clean and well-cared for. Dorothy and Charlie provided maps and brochures for local attractions that I found helpful. The pictures are very accurate. But be aware there are no screens on the windows or doors - be prepared for mosquitos at night. I purchased groceries for myself but any other essentials I needed were provided for in the compact kitchen. The Studio is attached to the main house but I heard very little through the shared walls. Depending on your length of stay, a washer and dryer would have been an added bonus. The location was very convenient for quick trips to town, hiking and sightseeing. Overall, this was a very relaxing vacation in a most serene setting.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5
The Studio/Artist retreat was great and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Boulder. The pictures and description on the listing are accurate - or maybe they even undersell the place, you’ll need to visit to understand.

In addition the hosts (Dorothy and Charlie) were very welcoming, open and provided just the right mix between being helpful and giving us space to relax/enjoy.

Thanks for the good time.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful vacation rental that Dorothy has offered. The location is a perfect mix of nature and convenience.
Dorothy does an excellent job making you feel completely at home and all I can say is that we will definitely be back. I just wish she rented out the main house for larger parties.
