Come enjoy the gorgeous sunsets and peaceful country setting at the ranch! Entire lower level of recently remodeled tri-level ranch, with a hot tub, fireplace, beautiful landscaping, fruit trees, expansive views, and a short drive to downtown Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville, I-25, Broomfield, Superior, and Erie. We have goats, horses, chickens, and very sweet, friendly dogs if you are an animal lover!
Come enjoy a weekend getaway at the farm! It's also perfect for a business trip or long term rentals with full accommodations. Each bedroom has a comfy queen size bed with down comforters along with an electric heater so you can keep it as warm or cool as you like. There is a large living room with a wood burning fireplace stocked with wood, a 55 inch HDTV (with Direct TV and DVD player), and cozy couches perfect for a night in. A queen size aerobed can be set up in the living room for an additional 2 guests for a total of 6. There is also a large open dining room and kitchen that is fully stocked for cooking. There is a walkout covered patio that is private, gas grill, and a hot tub that is great for relaxing at the end of the day and stargazing. The bathroom has a laundry closet with a full size washer and dryer. The house has central AC for the warmer months. There is a large mud room on the mid level that serves as the shared entry way with stairs leading downstairs to the apartment as well stairs leading to the upstairs where I live with two housemates so we may cross paths occasionally. The downstairs apartment has its own lockable door with a key and a patio entrance in the back yard. In addition to a relaxing getaway, the farm is also for producing food with fruit trees, two large gardens for vegetables, a chicken coop with laying hens, and pastures with 4 goats and 2 horses.
The house is in Lookout Rd. Estates, a rural subdivision with small family farms and horse properties. There are hiking trails nearby, including cross country skiing when it snows, scenic road bike rides right from the house, mountain biking nearby, climbing nearby, Rocky Mountain National Park is only a 45 minute drive, ski resorts are 1-3 hour drive, and a rec center with a pool 10 minutes away in Longmont along with grocery stores and anything you might want.
Its 20 minute drive to downtown Boulder (12 miles), 10 minutes to Niwot, Gunbarrel, Longmont, Louisville, Lafayette, I-25, Erie, and 15 minutes to Superior and Broomfield. There are tons of places to go for scenic road bike rides right from the house for cyclists. There is also a bus stop that is 1/2 a mile away which the "L" stops at and takes you into Longmont where you can access buses to Boulder. DIA is 40 minutes away and Denver is 30 minutes.
You are welcome to use the patio, front porch, hot tub, and explore around the front and back yards as long as you close any gates you walk through and leave things as you found them. There are several nice areas for sitting outside with a book when the weather is nice. Zeus and Ryker are my two very sweet dogs and spend most of their days out in the back yard and will happily sit with you on the patio but are not allowed into the downstairs space. There is a tennis a court with a basketball goal that is getting repainted next summer that you are welcome to use. The barns, greenhouse off the patio, pastures, and chicken coop are off limits. The garages and upstairs living space, including deck are off limits without an invitation.
I live upstairs and am around when I'm not at work so I'm happy to answer questions and give recommendations about the area. I've lived in Boulder for 10 years and can give you information on just about everything from skiing, to mountain biking, road biking, hiking, climbing, farming, restaurants, real estate, and nightlife. I love meeting new people and am happy to chat for a minute but also like my privacy and respect yours. I occasionally enjoy the hot tub too and you may see me around working on various projects, playing with the dogs, or having a glass of wine on the deck at sunset with friends.
Fresh eggs from the chickens, toast, and coffee will be stocked for breakfast along with a fully stocked kitchen for cooking (basic cookware, knives, oil, butter, salt, pepper, sugar and cream for coffee). The bathroom is stocked with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and handmade goat's milk soap. The dogs are very friendly but Zeus, large white Colorado Mountain Dog, may greet you with a bark until he gets to know you but is very friendly and sweet.
Quiet hours after 10pm. No tobacco use anywhere on the property (the house is on a quiet dirt road and you are welcome to stroll there for a smoke). Damaged, missing items etc. will be deducted from security deposit.Get the full listing »
