A modern mountain home nestled in scenic Boulder Canyon along Boulder Creek
About Joann Nelson
Jay and I have a shared passion for the great outdoors, traveling the world, and experiencing new things. We love the active, mountain lifestyle...which is a main reason why we both moved from the Midwest to Colorado after college. Jay is an avid mountain biker and adventure racer (kayak, mountain bike, rappel, trail run, navigation). I'm a distance runner and triathlete. I love running marathons and did my first full distance triathlon at the inaugural Ironman Boulder. Check out our blog on WordPress...Jay and Joann's Journey. We live in the house that shares a bridge with this property. We live in the lower level of that house and the upper level is a vacation rental. If you need anything during your stay or would like recommendations, just let us know. Otherwise, we will respect your privacy.

Great location about 10-15 minutes from Boulder. Property is in the mountains and feels like a true escape. Great kitchen and living room for cooking and relaxing. Host was very accommodating. Highly recommend.
Beautiful and Comfortable! Perfect Hosts!
We loved living among the mountains in such a beautiful, comfortable, and modern home. It was much more restful than staying in Boulder as we did last year. Joann took great care of us and answered every question and need that came up. We would definitely come back here again.
We loved many of the amenities including the super soft linens, king size bed, bedroom and bathroom storage, delicious coffee, laundry facilities, TV/Netflix, wifi, so many hiking guides, and books!
We loved the house and the convenience of getting back and forth to town and our house. We loved the house and it was well prepared for us to enjoy our trip.
Amazing mountain getaway
My wife and I were very impressed with the house. It had ample space, was tastefully decorated, and had all the amenities we could ask for. And, being just over 6 miles from downtown Boulder, it was close enough-but still felt like we were staying in a mountain home away from the city.
Jonann's recommendations were great-the Lost Lake hike was awesome (even for people from Minneapolis-as long as you take a few breaks), and Nederland offered us a second option versus going into Boulder for everything.
Overall, we would find it difficult to stay anywhere else upon a return visit to the area, and it was a great place to relax and enjoy after days of hiking-or sampling some of the great breweries in Boulder. Very comfortable, very private. And, morning coffee on the patio, in the mountain sun, was ideal.
Thank you Joann and Jay.

Great home and location. Clean, nice setting and modern amenities. Very responsive owners too!
The perfect get away vacation for my boyfriend and I.
I don’t think I could have picked a better home to stay in. The area was far enough away that it felt so private for the two of us, and close enough that if we wanted to go into town for anything we could. The home was incredible, and since we stayed in January after some fresh snow fall the fireplace was perfect for us too. The host gave me great advice and kept in touch when I had any questions. I’m saving this one to come back and experience Denver in the summer!
