About this listing

Stay in the best location Boulder has to offer. Walk everywhere from this Mapleton Hill location. The convenience just can't be beat.

The space

Stay in the best location Boulder has to offer. Walk to the Pearl Street Mall, Whole Foods, coffee shops, Pharmaca, specialty wine shop, fabulous restaurants and shopping, and hiking galore from this charming Mapleton Hill red brick Victorian.

Stay in the best location Boulder has to offer. Walk everywhere from this Mapleton Hill location: 6 blocks to the center of the famous Pearl Street Mall; 3 blocks to our neighborhood Whole Foods, Vic's Coffee, Pharmaca, restaurants, specialty wine shop, and more. Sanitas trailhead is 6 blocks away. 1-1/2 blocks to the bus stop. 3 blocks to the closest bike rental station. The convenience of this location just can't be beat.

Please be aware this is a shared situation; room only. I, with my partner, will be in the home during your stay.

The house has loads of charm with wood floors throughout. It's a very peaceful and relaxing space with three bedrooms and bath upstairs and living room, parlor, kitchen, small bedroom, and bath on the main level. It is a renovated Victorian house built in 1896 by a Boulder Judge. The kitchen is fully updated with granite counters and stainless steel appliances and we welcome you to do some light food prep (putting together sandwiches or salads, for example) although it may be hard to resist all of the awesome restaurant choices that are located so close by. Feel free to help yourself in the morning to coffee or tea. Did we mention the wrap around front porch? Really fun to hang out on and watch people walking and biking by. For your convenience, you will have access to the keyless entry on the front door.

Your bedroom includes a double real bed, desk for your computer, wi-fi, flatscreen TV, plenty of closet space, and foothill views to the north. It is freshly painted and clean. The whole house is very clean! Even though the house has three bathrooms, we will all share the main bathroom upstairs for showering. Please know that your bedroom is not in another wing of the house, as there is no other wing, but instead the three bedrooms upstairs are located close to each other so if you are looking for a lot of privacy, this may not be the best situation for you. None of our other many guests have minded.

NOTE: We have another room downstairs that we airbnb. You may prefer that room if you are just one person as it only has a twin bed. Click on my profile photo, then click on my photo again to get to the Hey, I'm Linda page and scroll down to click on the listing of the other room.

*Great location for athletes seeking somewhere to facilitate training at altitude: Close to Chautauqua, famous trails, local Boulder races. Can keep your bike in the house.

No issue, there is free street parking.

Please check in by 9 pm in case you need assistance with finding the house in the dark, the keyless entry, etc. In case there are extenuating circumstances and you will be late, please communicate/send a message. Thanks!

I am a long-term resident of Boulder and possess a wealth of knowledge about this town and am happy to share what I know. My boyfriend moved here from California many years ago and we both look forward to meeting and hosting new people in our home.

Sorry, no smoking or pets. ***Please, we ask that you do not use strong perfumes during your stay. This is very important for us and our other guests and we appreciate your compliance.** Clothes washing available 1 time per week for guests who stay at least a few days.

You can walk to probably everything you might need. If not, public transportation is very convenient. There is a bus stop 1-1/2 blocks away. There are bicycle rental kiosks throughout town. The closest one is 3 blocks away. Cab service is ZTrip and there is Uber and Lyft.

Interaction with guests

My partner and I will be in the house during your stay. We welcome conversation when you are around but also respect your privacy if you prefer to keep to yourself.

Other things to note

We also airbnb the small bedroom on the main level so if you have a concern about another guest in the house at the same time as you, please ask us about this. This other room has a single bed so it would only be for one person. If you are just one, you may prefer this room as it has it's own keyless entry to the outside, off the wrap-around front porch. Click on my profile photo, then click on my photo again to get to the Hey, I'm Linda page and scroll down to click on the listing of the other room.

Linda was very welcoming and her house is very clean. She was there for our check in and showed my girlfriend and I how to get in.

I visited with no car for five days in July. I walked everywhere and all of Pearl Street, downtown, UC Boulder, Boulder Creek bike paths and hiking/biking paths are within a few blocks of her door. It's about 10 blocks from the downtown bus terminal; taking the bus from the airport to Boulder was the best $9 I've ever spent. Linda's house is immaculate.

I've been to Boulder on 2 previous trips, but this was by fay my favorite stay. I always rented a hotel room and wanted to try something different this time. I felt immediately at home at Linda's and she was incredibly welcoming and helpful. Her home is very neat and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I had no issues sleeping at all because the room was quiet, cool, and very peaceful. She's also a great host who is happy to share where to eat or what to see. I would absolutely stay there again and would highly recommend her as a host!

We had a great stay here. Linda and Karl are very nice and welcoming, and certainly made their home feel like ours (with pour over coffee available in the morning). The shared bathroom wasn't a problem; there was never a conflict. The listing is accurately described and the location is ideal. It's walkable to Pearl Street Mall and we were also an easy drive to Rocky National Park.

We had a wonderful visit. Linda was a gracious host. The house was clean, safe and quiet with a nice added touch in the morning--fresh drip coffee you prepare at your leisure.

Linda User ProfileLinda is a superhost.

I've lived in Boulder for 30+ years and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge about this city that I'm happy to share. My boyfriend moved here from California many years ago and he loves it here. I obviously love it since I've been here so long. I'm a real estate broker and love to help people in this regard. I'm just getting back into fine art painting so that is exciting. I like to play guitar, cook healthy food, and be out in the sunny weather. My boyfriend is a painter of houses and has spent countless hours updating and keeping our house looking good. He also plays guitar, writes music, and sings. He has two grown sons that are musicians and travel around the world. I have one son who lives here in Boulder. He bartends in a very nice restaurant in town and he also takes people on fly fishing tours, so if you're into that, I will put him in touch with you. You will have a great time here and we look forward to meeting you.
