Great Views - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay. The owner had fresh flowers there for us and that was really nice. We enjoyed the view and the creek being just a few steps away. There are a number of stairs to get to the front door but worth it. The place was clean and we had everything we needed. LOVED the location being so close to the Pearl Street Mall. We will definitely stay here gain.

October Stay

  • 4 of 5

Home was nice and clean and great location just outside the "city life" of Boulder. The negative to this property is that to access the property you have to go up 65 steps (steep and not real safe when carrying luggage, etc.. up and down.). The photos never show the steps and I don't believe this was mentioned in the description. This should be very well made aware before someone rents just in case they are not capable in going up the numerous amount of steps. Great view from the front of the property and appreciated the fresh flowers and water. Parking is tight if you have two cars.

Views, views

  • 4 of 5

Great views from the balconies. Right across the street a beautiful park area and walking/hiking/biking trails. Close to everything. Fresh flowers upon arrival was a nice touch. A little noisy from traffic during the day but did not notice at night while sleeping. The steps were a bit much but after the 3rd day better after getting acclimated to the high altitude. Would stay there again.

Great place to stay in Boulder

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited for this trip and this cabin and we were not disappointed. The location was perfect, right across from Boulder Creek. The cabin is about a 5 minute drive to Pearl Street. The owner was so helpful and took great care of us and the accommodations were perfect. An item to note, as others have said- the stairs are no joke! If you have any issues with climbing or heights, this may be difficult for you. We intend to stay here for our next trip.

Rugged stay in Boulder

  • 4 of 5

Nice view and convenient location. The 50 steep stairs are difficult especially with luggage and groceries. The pillows and bedding need to be upgraded. The pillows were very thin and uncomfortable but not nearly as uncomfortable as the mattresses. The bedroom mattress was very uncomfortable and the fold out couch was completely worn out. We ended up buying a inflatable mattress to sleep on. Probably would look for another place next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I strive to make sure the home is comfortable and in good condition for every visitor – all linens are cleaned/changed prior to each visit and beds and bedding are replaced regularly. I agree with you that the stairs can be a challenge, I consider it a tradeoff for the phenomenal view. Thanks again, I hope you come back to Boulder soon. Sincerely, Barry
