Private bedroom and bath in my home located 12 miles north of Boulder. Easy access to Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Fort Collins, and great hiking on the front range. Close to lakes, great walking paths, a frisbee golf park, restaurants, breweries, grocery store , a gym, coffee shop and a hospital that's walking distance (but you won't need that ;-)
Full access to a gourmet kitchen and to the very relaxing backyard patio.
I provide coffee, tea, bagels, toast or cereal for breakfast.
My home and yard are peaceful and cozy. This is a great place to relax or to use as a base for whatever your purpose is in coming to Colorado. The bed is a double so can accommodate one or two. You can eat outside on one of the 2 patios that are usually shaded and listen to the birds singing.
I have evaporative cooling when needed in the summer and there is a ceiling fan in your room.
There is a fireplace in the living room for use in winter.
One well-behaved dog is acceptable. I charge an additional $15 as I've found there is typically more clean up. My yard is fenced in and there is a doggie door.
Often I am caretaking a dog, so if you are allergic or don't love canines, please ask ahead if I will have one when you plan to come. I only accept charming dogs so don't worry about not having a sweet one here.
I have an organic vegetable garden in summer and if you're fortunate enough to be here at the right time, I will gladly share some harvest with you.
My adult son has recently returned from S. America and is living with me. He is awesome (spoken as a true biased mother), but honestly, he is a very respectful and kind. We are all sharing the same home together like roommates, but know you have your own space and come & go as you please. I try to be respectful in all ways that might impact you and hope for the same from you. I make room for you to have space in the refrig. if you bring your own food in.
I offer my home as a comfortable haven, so if there is something you need, please ask and I will try to accommodate. I am usually accessible by phone or text when not home. I want you to feel at home here. Let me know if you are gluten or dairy free so I know what to purchase ahead.
You have your own bathroom with a tub & shower. You can use the backyard and patios to hang out if you wish. I have 2 guest bikes & helmets if you want to ride. I also have 2 pairs of snow-shoes if you are here in winter and want to hike in the mountains or golf courses near by. You can share the common areas which include the kitchen, living room & library room.
There is a washer & dryer if you need it.
I can steer you in any direction you may need to go and give referrals for restaurants, music venues, hiking trails and other interests.
I am a busy, active person so we may just be ships passing in the night (or hallway) so know that you will have personal space. On the same note, I also love getting to know you if time allows.
Let me know what time you plan to arrive so I can properly greet you and give you a key.
I have provided a list in your room of restaurants, bars, walking areas, hikes and just basic household navigation.
No tobacco smokers please.
If you want to smoke cannabis, you can do so outside.
I request to have no meat cooked in my house but I'm fine with your eating it here or keeping it in the refrig.
If you have a dog(s), I charge an additional $15 as I find I have more clean-up to do, though I don't want to discourage anyone from traveling with pets.
I am environmentally tuned so I compost, recycle and turn off lights when not necessary. I would invite the same from you but am not militant about it (don't be scared ;).
Just be respectful and clean up after yourself in the common areas.
Check in: after 3pm.
Check out: noon
I have lived in Colorado for 9 years having moved here from the desert in Arizona. I love the change of seasons, the mountains, sunsets, lakes and abundance of hiking and biking this amazing area offers. I have much gratitude and appreciation for the beauty surrounding me and never take it for granted.
I love traveling and exploring new places and that goes for advising guests of awesome local spots to go and things to do, based on their interests.
