This newly built 1 bedroom guest suite is ideal for those looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful, secluded mountain setting, but yet only 10 minutes from downtown Boulder.
Relax and enjoy the wonderful beauty, sights and sounds on your own private patio. The sunrises are gorgeous. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, listen to the birds chirping and watch the deer graze while you’re sipping a fresh cup of coffee in the morning or enjoying a cocktail in the evening.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Free access to my health club. As Boulder is a training bed for many athletes, this guest suite is perfect for the visiting athlete to train and/or compete in a local event.
I really enjoyed my stay at Glen & Renee's. It was close enough that I could enjoy all things Boulder, but far enough outside of town that I could really get the peace I needed. My hosts were informative and helpful yet not intrusive at all. This is a great place to stay whether it's for a few nights or a few weeks. And the access to Glen's gym was a huge plus -- what a great facility!
We loved our short stay at Glen and Rene's home - a beautiful apartment unit below their mountain home. Brand new, comfortable and only a 10 minute drive to downtown Boulder. Glen, Rene and their darling dog, Stout were the perfect hosts. We will stay there again when back in Boulder!
Looking to relocate to Boulder n wanted get feel of living in foothills. Very nice clean and friendly hosts. Recommend unless u r wanting to do serious cooking - has limited but adequate kitchen. Would stay at again.
The house sits on a hill, on the outskirts of Boulder, so you get to be on the Mountain and are also 10 minutes or less from Pearl Street. Glen, the owner, was a great host. Gave us awesome suggestions for eating out while at the same time giving us space to come and go as we needed. He was always available if we needed him . (Corkscrew missing? problem solved!)
It's a very private space with your own entrance and has everything you could possibly need. Amazing views through the windows. Spotless and modern. King Size bed slept very nice.
My wife and I stayed for 5 days, we loved it.
Glen is very welcoming and kind. The house is really beautifully designed, elegantly decorated, and neatly set-up. The location is perfect for those who want to be closer to the nature but still prefer to have access to city life and food. It only takes 10 mins driving to the heart of Boulder and 5 mins to leave the city. We spent two days in Rocky Mountain Natl. Park and it was amazing, especially the one-way dirt road driving to Alpine Visitor Center and those hiking trails to various lakes. We really enjoyed and relaxed ourselves in this labor day holiday.
From Glen's garage, we can tell he is very very strong at cycling. I wished we can have more time to talk for my friend is writing a master thesis on design for bicycle and he was always wanted to grasp a chance to chat with the kind host. Unfortunately we came back late so we didn't have the chance. I am thinking about we would love to go back to Glen's house if we have a chance to visit Boulder again.
Thank you for having us. :)
We visited Boulder for the Ironman in August. We were very pleased with with property and accommodations at Glen and Renee's! The space was exactly as described. Highlights included the extra comfortable king bed, kitchen with necessities, and the private outdoor patio area with a mountain view. Renee's decorating of the suite also made for a beautiful and welcoming space. Glen graciously spent time with us upon arrival to review the property and provide recommendations for dinner, hikes, and spectating the Ironman. We would return without a doubt!
