Beautiful area, can walk everywhere and still be close to the hubbub of Boulder, great options for all.
*Note: if looking for privacy, the best times will be between March 17 -April 14 and / or this summer, June 10 - July 31* . If you are okay with 1 host being on site (after work and primarily in the master suite, not necessarily interacting with you unless you would like) with full access for guests to the guest bedroom/bathroom, kitchen, living room, and patio, we are happy for your inquiry! We will ask for the full names of any guests as part of the booking process. If you provide that in the first contact it will speed the process up. Thank you.
The coyote featured in the photo was on a trail 5 minutes' walk from our front door! If you turn and walk the other way, in 2 minutes you are in the heart of Niwot: local market with organic food/tasty dining options, restaurants, 2 small breweries with live music, exercise gyms, tennis courts, neat artsy little downtown with monthly cultural festivals, bike, horse, and walking open space trails with wildlife galore. This area is wonderful for all ages. No pets, no smoking.
You have a private bedroom and bathroom and full use of the kitchen, living room, and balcony with grill and place to sit and enjoy fresh air.
If needed, the couch in the living room folds out to a full size bed. Parking is free and easily available. Neighbors are quiet, and we'd like you to be, too. Chances are very good that we will be offsite during your stay (but easily reachable for questions/any other ways we can help). If one of us is scheduled to be temporarily on the premises (in the master suite with shared hallway) during your stay, you can choose your level of interaction (we do not need to access any space other than the hallway and we both work/travel a lot anyway). We will have maps and guides for you. You can use our wireless.
We are very convenient to Longmont (5 minutes), Boulder (15 minutes), Fort Collins (45 minutes) and Denver (45 minutes). It's an easy ride to get here from Denver International Airport (45 minutes, and on free flowing E470, not snarled up US36 or jammed up I-25). RTD bus stop to Boulder and Longmont is a quick 10 minutes' walk. Look, Boulder is great, but also chaotic and full of traffic! Base yourself here, zip there or to Longmont, Lafayette, or Louisville, and you'll be serenely glad you did.
Niwot is truly a jewel, and folks in the know come here to enjoy our beautiful surroundings, cultural events, and friendly, laid back nature. We are surrounded by open space and very close to the Foothills. Come explore
Private bedroom, private bathroom, full access to kitchen, living room, balcony, parking, tennis courts, bike/horse/walking trails, wireless. The washer and dryer are by request only. If one or both of us (hosts) are in town we only use the separate master suite and shared hallway to the entry door. If this is a concern, please communicate it with us.
As much or as little as requested (unless an emergency). My husband and I are generally away from the space (I teach overseas and he travels for business). However, his assistant is nearby and all of us are easily reachable by phone and email. If one of us is in town, you may not even know someone is there as we have a separate bed/bath suite. Guests still have exclusive use of kitchen and living areas. This space is private 75% of the year.
We can help you plan activities. Longmont has skydiving; hot air balloon rides are available in the area; swimming pools are near, as well as boating at Union and Boulder Reservoirs. Horseback riding, organic farm tours, summer farmers' markets, cultural events- it's all here. Need a gym? There are plenty!
Whether by yourself or with others, we expect considerate, mature behavior. Our neighbors work, and children are in the neighborhood. Niwot is known for its friendly, laid back nature, but it derives from respect for others and surroundings. No drugs or boisterous drinking parties, and it gets pretty quiet here after 10 pm. *For everyone's safety and security, do not invite people who are not included on the reservation to come stay or hang out.*
