About the property

3 Bedrooms - 4 Baths - (Sleeps 6 adults)

This house is located in the mountains between the town of Boulder and the Indian Peaks Wilderness, with a 30-minute drive to either. The location is both private and inspiring, and a perfect place to experience nature in comfort. Spend your day hiking or biking in the mountains, relax in the sauna or hot tub and head into town for dinner at one of Boulder’s outstanding restaurants.

Our original home here was lost in the Fourmile Fire of 2010, and this home is newly rebuilt; the reviews below are of the previous house. There are two master bedrooms with king beds and attached baths, and the third bedroom is a bunk room that sleeps four. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, along with a grill and seating on the deck. The living room has a glass-front wood stove, comfortable seating as well as incredible divide views. There is a spa bathroom with a 6-person hot tub, rain shower and sauna. There is also an additional rec room with a wide-screen tv, surround sound, DVDs and many movie channels. There are games for younger kids, as well as a play structure outside.

About Lillian Sutcliffe

We are a family of four who lived on this property for ten years before moving into the city of Boulder. This property remains a cherished retreat for us.

Lillian Sutcliffe purchased this house in 1998

Why Lillian Sutcliffe chose Boulder

We were initially drawn to the natural beauty of this property, as well as the strong sense of community in the area. We felt lucky to raise our children in such a beautiful environment.

What makes this house unique

This property is truly unique, as it provides an inspiring natural experience that's still close to the amenities of Boulder. The views of both the Continental Divide and the night sky are stunning, and the property is very quiet and peaceful. The house is new and utilizes geothermal and solar heating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great house in a great location. We loved the house, the wood heater, the

steam shower, and everything about the house. It was convenient to Boulder and

to Eldora Ski Resort. We had an enjoyable drive to the ski resort and an

enjoyable day skiing.

Amazing Home, Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t say enough positive things about this home! It was clean, modern, the amenities were more than we could have asked for and the views...oh man those views are worth it alone. Lillian was glorious to work with, super sweet, great communication and just really kind. We would book this home again in a heartbeat! In fact I think we’re planning on when we can book again!

Beautiful mountain getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five loved our visit to this home. The location is gorgeous and truly unique - and a new mountain vista appeared daily depending on the weather! The home is modern yet rustic, spotless and stocked with everything we needed. Lillian was a great host and we wish we could have stayed longer!

the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a weekend here doing a mini-reunion with 5 friends. We all live spread out throughout the country, so we wanted to fly into Denver given it's location, but wanted a more secluded location. This spot could not have been more perfect. The home is even better than the pictures, and we loved using the sauna and hot tub! All of the beds were extraordinarily comfy and the additional half bathrooms were much appreciated! Lillian was super easy to communicate with and everything for getting in and checking out was a breeze. We walked down to Gold Hill for some beers and live music at the general store-- an excursion we highly recommend! We had such a great time that we hope to make this a yearly trip! Thank you, Lillian, for such a great stay at your beautiful home!

Beautiful house. Amazing place to spend a few relaxing days!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! The home is beautiful and cozy with incredible views in all directions. It was great being up in the mountains but it is still easy enough to do exploring all over. Hope to visit again!
