About the property

Renovated downtown studio with mountain views and patio

Visit beautiful Boulder, Colorado and stay in the best spot in town, Boulder’s iconic “Morrison House” property. This luxurious carriage house studio is located 1 block from Pearl Street Mall, has mountain views, and is fully furnished with a gourmet kitchen and new appliances.

Enjoy your vacation in a fully renovated piece of Boulder’s history in the Mapleton neighborhood! This carriage house studio belongs to the Morrison House built in 1891, which is part of Boulder’s Historic Walking Tour and was the crown jewel of Boulder’s “Historic Homes for the Holidays” event.

This light-filled loft comes with an off-street parking space, your own private back yard with BBQ grill and access to all Boulder has to offer. Walk to Pearl Street shops and events, the farmers market, or enjoy CU graduation week in the heart of Boulder. We are also conveniently located across the street from Boulder’s new “eTown Hall” performance space, aired weekly on National Public Radio (NPR).

To make your stay more comfortable we provide you with fresh linens & towels, additional housekeeping upon request and tons of info about Boulder’s sightseeing spots, hidden gems, and outdoor activities.

In walking distance to public transportation to Denver and Eldora Ski Resort make this a perfect no-car vacation spot. You can rent a bike down the street and explore Boulder and all it has to offer.

About Chris Scordo

After many trips to this wonderful town, our family was lucky enough to move to Boulder in 2011, and we fell in love with the Morrison House the second we saw it. In 2012 we purchased the property with its newly built carriage house studio, and this is where we raise our small family, enjoying everything Boulder has to offer! Chris owns a training and publishing business in Boulder, and Victoria is a licensed architect.

Chris Scordo purchased this studio in 2012

Why Chris Scordo chose Boulder

This red brick and shingled house was built around 1891 by Murdoch 'Doc' Morrison, a blacksmith, wagon maker and Boulder alderman. In 2009, the property was completely renovated and expanded, and we had a chance to rent it in 2011. That is when we fell in love with the house and took the opportunity to make it (and Boulder) our home!

Cozy, convenient and cute!

  • 5 of 5

This property provides a cozy but not cramped feel. I stayed two weeks while visiting my son, who is a UC Boulder student. The studio was stocked with everything needed, a full kitchen, a nice-sized bathroom, a comfortable bed, a nice outdoor area that provided a private feel and a grill as well. The location is fantastic as it is a short walk to Pearl Street, near to various trails, within driving distance of beautiful sights and downtown Denver and the airport. The owners assured that any issues were addressed rapidly and were easily accessible. Overall, this is a wonderful property that I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Boulder and the surrounding areas.

Great location with walking distance to hiking and dining. The lodging had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

Awesome location for a stay in boulder. Super easy to get to location and loved that we were able to access the place without having to check in with owners. Place was clean and organized. Really should be 4 1/2 stars, but there is no 1/2 option. My only complaint was that the AC did not keep up with the warm temps outside.

Lovely Apt, Great Location, Great Owners

  • 4 of 5

This was my second time staying here and I enjoyed it as much the second time as the first. The apt is very comfortable and the bed and linens are great. The kitchen is well supplied and there's off-street parking. It's walking distance to Pearl, which is wonderful. The only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because they do not provide soap or shampoo for the shower (they do state that in the contract, so you are for-warned). I really find it a pain when I travel to have to bring this stuff with me, or purchase it. This is the only place I've stayed in recently that has not provided those toiletries and I wish they would.

This should not discourage you from staying there as it is a lovely place and very private. I would just like it to be prefect!

Great Location near Pearl St

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best locations you can get in Boulder, so close to Pearl St Mall. Much better than a hotel room. Very responsive owners answered questions quickly and provided anything we needed.

Our stay in the Carriage house was just lovely- it was as pictured, spotless and the perfect location for our hiking and Boulder exploits. We would happily stay there again!

Great place with a greater owner.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 5 weeks. The location is one of the highlights, the apartment is less than two blocks from Pearl Street and all the amenities that one would need for a nice get away. Restaurants, shops and public transportation are within walking distance. We will definitely stay at the Carriage House again!! Thank you to Chris and family for an outstanding visit and all you did to make us feel at home.
