Interaction with guests
We are glad to interact as much or as little as our guests desire - it is your time! Rick and Jaclyn, with their over 22 years in Colorado and Boulder, can answer any questions and provide suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants and activities. If they don't have the answer, they'll find out. During the summer Rick and Jaclyn will often share a glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres outside with guests on the patio.
Our 1921 home harks back to a time in Boulder fast disappearing. We are located in the University Hill Historic District, and surrounded by homes of the bungalow era in Boulder but within a 10 minute walk of the gorgeous Flatirons located at the base of Flagstaff Mountain ( a popular and challenging bike ride to the top.) Our backyard is beautifully landscaped and peaceful. Nestled under the wisteria covered pergola, the draping lights add a European ambiance for drinks/dining on a warm summer's night - or the crispness of a fall or winter night. When the weather is warm, a water feature provides that hint of a peaceful mountain stream.
We are 3 blocks away from the main bus line that circumnavigates the city (and our neck of the woods) - and takes you to the central bus station where buses for Denver and surrounding areas depart from. You can also pick up the Hop or Skip which drops you 2 blocks from the house. No car needed from our location- you can walk or bike anywhere on the extensive bike paths and there are plenty of B-bike stations throughout the Hill and the city. World class dining, twice weekly Farmer's Markets, Shakespeare Festival (all these summer and fall), road races, a bustling Pearl St. Mall and a plethora of other cultural and athletic events keeps Boulder lively and we are within 3 hours of world class skiing.
Other things to note
We have a Weimaraner dog and 2 Burmese cats that are never allowed in or on the guest floor - but pats are appreciated should you run into any of them.
We are a completely non-smoking home, cannabis friendly discretely outside. Since the suite is not set up for toddlers, we have had a few with prior approval to make sure we are all on the same page. As a residential neighborhood, we keep things low key - so quiet get togethers with friends are OK, but loud parties into the wee hours aren't. No pets without prior approval. By staying at our suite, you agree to the terms of a simple rental agreement - a copy provided upon request.
