Kelly & Richard

Kelly & Richard Schuh purchased this house in 2006

Why Kelly & Richard Schuh chose Boulder

The home is our primary residence. Richard bought the property in September of 2006 just after the renovation. Every home flipper in town had looked at it until the previous owner pulled the trigger and hired the best craftsmen and trades in town for a top to bottom gut renovation.

Richard was in town after an Outward Bound Excursion and discovered the home while riding a bike through the historic district. It came down to -If I don't buy this home - I am going to regret it.

So he bought it and moved from Minnesota.

What makes this house unique

Mapleton @ 17th Street. The location cannot be beat. You will be right in the heart of Downtown Boulder and be able to walk to everything.

As well, the guest suite is very private and comfortable. The architect designed it to feel like a suite in a Five Star hotel with all the amenities you would expect. Beautiful artwork & furniture. Fine linens & Towels. Washer & dryer. The home is located in a very quiet neighborhood in the historic district 4 doors down for the 'Mork & Mindy' house.

Does not get much better that this

  • 5 of 5

Luv It. It was a romantic weekend away from the kids and it could not have gone better. This historic home is right in Downtown Boulder and we were able to walk to Pearl St. The guest suite; Beautiful , huge, luxurious, clean, very peaceful, private. We loved the fireplace and the bathroom was as good as any I have ever seen. The Schuh family handled everything. The booking was easy and they even accepted our Visa card.

How fortunate were we to come to town and stay in one of the nicest homes in Boulder.

Very welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The home is reflective of the owners. It's very apparent that Richard and Kelly take pride in their home and the accommadations that they provide. They allowed us the privacy which we needed but were very quick to address any question or need that came up during our stay. Our stay at their residence was one of the best decisions we made while in the Boulder area.

Owner's Response: Jeff- It was a pleasure meeting you both. Thank you for the compliments. Yes, Kelly and I put great pride in our home. We are only the 4th owners in 117 years. We feel very lucky to be the stewards of this legacy home and hopefully it will always be in our families care. We also feel very fortunate to have people like you as guests. It makes the entire vacation rental experience so rewarding. Thanks again.

Wounderful place with a great location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were great and the location is fantastic. We were in walking distance of Pearl street, which has an amazing selection of shops and restaurants and a short drive from a number of fabulous hiking trails.

The property is absolutely gorgeous! Very well kept.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for three days as part of our honeymoon and loved it. It was so cool to wake up and walk downtown for coffee. The owners were kind enough to leave recommendations for food and we are so glad they did. We loved Foolish Craig's for breakfast. We loved being able to walk to downtown for whatever we needed. It's very convienient!

The house is well remodeled and super cute. We are quite the private people and we would have never known that there were people upstairs from us. We loved our stay and would absolutely stay again!! Thanks, y'all!

Owner's Response: Amber, We are so glad you "loved your stay" It was a pleasure having you. Congrats on your marriage. The guest suite does offer maximum privacy for our guests. Plus, all of downtown Boulder is right out the front gate. We never meet about 1/3 of our guests. We are here if you need anything and hands off if you don't. Our goal is mutual respect and privacy. We have had 56 guests who have returned for a second visit.

Perfect Boulder neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property for graduation weekend at CU. The location was perfect for Pearl St. access, and for just strolling around the Boulder area. We had three adults, and plenty of space, with two parallel rooms. You enter into the main bedroom, sleeping area, but it has a nice sitting area/ couch at the far end. The other space in this basement apartment is another small living area with a fold out couch and dining table. Kelly and Richard were great hosts, and responded to any of our requests quickly. Really enjoyed the outdoor sitting area for morning coffee (the weather was perfect for our long weekend). Bathroom had good space and plenty of hot water for the shower.

Owner's Response: Jeffery- Whittier is an amazing neighborhood. Our guests are right in the middle of Downtown Boulder and can walk for coffee or dinner. The "Mork & Mindy" house is 4 doors down. For those of you that remember, it was the ABC comedy from the 70's starting the late/great Robin Williams. Many of our guests don't even bother to rent a car. The Boulder transit center is 6 blocks away. The A/B bus from the airport will get you here. As well, Uber, Lyft and Super Shuttle know where the house is.
