YOUR Perfect Getaway

What is your perfect getaway? What does your mind and body need? Do you need some serious rest and relaxation and not a whole lot more? Do you need a little activity to keep the body moving, but nothing too strenuous or demanding? Or maybe what you want is an all out epic getaway filled with tons of fun and activity.

Whatever your desires, as your personal getaway guide; we will plan and develop together your perfect getaway.

Some ideas to get you started…

Fun and Relaxation

I am very knowledgeable about what’s going on in Boulder and can make endless suggestions for outings in the area. I can provide restaurant recommendations and reservations. I can assist you with all local activities and upcoming events from the Boulder’s Farmer’s Market to the Film Festival to enjoying the local music and Street Performers on Pearl Street Mall. I can get you off in the right direction for sightseeing to Rocky Mountain National Park, Red Rocks amphitheater... Then renew and re-energize with a therapeutic massage, facial, manicure/pedicure or any other soothing treatment. Please visit bouldercoloradousa for a multitude of things to do in Boulder. Then afterwards let me assist you in selecting the best choices for you and help work out the logistics. Your stay with us will include a free membership at our health club, Oneboulderfitness.

Fitness Retreat

Although I can provide assistance for numerous activities Boulder has to offer, I do specialize in a few areas. I was a professional athlete in my earlier years and I have been a personal trainer and health club owner for over 30 years. Fitness is my passion. Your stay with us will include a free membership at our health club, Oneboulderfitness. If you need help getting started in a health and wellness program or would like to upgrade your current program, I would be excited to share my knowledge and experience. My expertise and experience is in functional fitness, core conditioning, strength training and nutrition/weight loss. Further, I have tremendous experience with cardiovascular conditioning as I trained my wife who was a professional mountain bike racer for several years. I can set you up with whatever program suits your needs whether you’re a first time fitness enthusiast or a seasoned athlete.

Outdoor Activities

If you’re looking to enjoy the natural wonders of Colorful Colorado, we can recommend the right trail for your fitness level. My wife was a professional mountain bike racer for nine years. We can provide maps to all of the local hikes, mountain biking, road riding, downhill, cross county and backcountry skiing, snowshoeing... If you need a bike, I will set you up with the right bike. If you need skis, snowshoes, I can do that. I can provide day packs and coolers and if you want I can even include the food and drinks.

As all of these additional services will be custom fit to your needs, pricing will be determined based on your choices.

About Glen Marshman

Health and fitness is a way of life for my wife and me. We are extremely fortunate to have found the perfect location for our lifestyle as we can escape each evening and every weekend to the simple pleasures and beauty of the outdoors. And yet we’re able to enjoy all the wonderful city life activities as it is so conveniently accessible. We think you too will find the best of both worlds as well on your stay with us.

We have 2 adorable dogs, Guinness and Stout, who will insist on greeting you when you first arrive as any gracious host would do. They understand they are not allowed in your guest area, but please keep in mind they are dogs who will make their presence known at times.

Glen Marshman purchased this studio in 2009

Gorgeous Boulder CO mountain home

Beautiful, peaceful & private unit. Glen & Renee were wonderful hosts who are eager to share their personal insights and best spots for everything you might desire. The best VRBO I have had the good fortune to find. Trude Frazer

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with a VRBO and it was beyond our expectations! First of all, the property is even nicer than the pictures show on the website! It is very nicely decorated and has a cozy feel to it. Very clean and well-maintained with a lovely sitting area behind the house with a beautiful view of the woodsy mountains. There isn't anything that we would change about the property. Glen and Rene are perfect hosts. Glen asked us what we were interested in doing on our vacation. Our main interests were to go on a lot of hiking trails and eat at some good restaurants. He suggested to us a whole list of great restaurants and hiking trails in the area. Other than that, you would never know you were in the same house with them. They are busy with their lives and totally respect your privacy. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and would love to go back there again ourselves!

Our Trip Ended Too Soon

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and reviews do no justice to this rental property. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with the owners. The suite is unmatchable to that of which you will pay same $$ or more within hotel. This mountain getaway was affordable, secure, safe, private, friendly, clean, and suitable for a quiet cozy vacation literally minutes away from trails and downtown...not to mention 30mins from Rocky Mountain National Park. We woke up each morning to the natural sounds of wildlife and the gravel path to their home added to the experience. WE WILL BE BACK! #Boulder #ThankYou!!

Fantastic Place, Great Location, Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5

As I mentioned to Glen the owner, these pictures do not do this place justice. Beautiful nature and mountains surrounded us. We're also pleasantly surprised by the high end touches and amenities in this newer space. It was perfect for me and my husband visiting for Parent's Weekend @ CU Boulder. Just a 10 minute drive to downtown Boulder made for a perfect location. Glen was also very knowledgeable about the area restaurants and shops. Thank you. We'll be back.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I were visiting Boulder from Austin, TX and wanted to spend our time reveling in the mountains of Colorado. So rather than stay in a hotel in the heart of everything, we opted for this terrific out of the way place. We found the unit to be extremely clean, comfortable and tastefully designed. Thoughtful touches like fresh coffee and guide book in the suite let us know our hosts really cared. Glen, Rene and the pups were stellar hosts and very accommodating. Our mornings were spent drinking coffee on the private patio while enjoying the views and mountain air. And the best part is that this "getaway" is really only minutes to everything in Boulder. We hiked and biked and ate our way through Boulder and loved every minute of it. We will definitely stay here again!
