Our family has resided on this magnificent property for over 20 years. In the 1950s, before the home was built, our land was known as "the point." Lovers used to drive onto the property, park at the end of the lot which overlooks the eastern plains, and... you know... We live on 6.5 acres of stunning forested land located 1000 feet above downtown Boulder. Our property rests on a peninsula with views of the white-capped peaks to the west and the city lights to the east. The property feels far away from the bustle of city life, yet it is only an eight-minute drive to the heart of downtown Boulder's historic shopping district and ten minutes from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Vista Tranquila, the name given to our property by its previous owners, has trails to meander, picnic tables, horseshoes, swings hanging from the trees, a competitive-level trampoline, benches with views, and hammocks. The communal food prep area has a gas grill, a table for food prep, and a seating area. We request that guests pack out all trash. Since we do not provide stoves, pans, utensils, or cleanup facilities, please bring paper towels to wipe off your stoves, pans, dishes, and utensils. A well-maintained portable flush toilet is provided in a tall tent near the main residence. A spigot can be found with fresh well water on the back side of the main residence. We do not offer showers. However, the Boulder Recreation Center (a 10-minute drive) offers showers and other facilities for a small fee. You can enjoy a historic mining town experience with fine dining and live bluegrass/ folk music at the town of Gold Hill which is less than 20 minutes up our canyon. Kayakers, climbers, hikers, and cyclists (mountain, road, and gravel) will have an outdoor playground within a very short drive or right outside our door. World-class climbing located at Eldorado Canyon State Park is only a 25-minute drive. If you seek bigger peaks beyond Boulder Mountain Parks, the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park are a gorgeous 45-minute drive.

ASPENS NOOK- total peace.
This was a perfect stay for my son and I. Away from the city, easy to get to, welcomed by David upon our arrival and the directions and instructions were all very clear. We stayed in Aspens nook - which was literally the best Marty of camping and luxury. The room was so cozy and comfortable complete with luxurious linens. instant coffee clean water, electric water heater, books , mini fridge and microwave. Right outside was a breath taking view and … silence. The restroom was outside and up a hill , it was a shared camping toilet and the cleanest and easy to use. The location and experience made my weekend trip worth the drive from KC feel relaxing and worth it. We were even given so many suggestions for my son to do while he stayed the rest of the week. Other people stayed at the same time and it never felt crowded or weird. This will definitely be my go-to place when in Boulder, I can’t wait to get back, I felt like everything I needed they had and I was able to relax and enjoy my time. I could definitely breathe easier when I left. I even witnessed a pine cone falling from a tree right off the porch- it was awesome!

We went up for one night & got rain/snow; also showed up late & after dark. Hosts were super nice & came out to the car to make sure we were settled & had everything we needed! Would definitely return - beautiful property & sweet little tent site.

The photos looked inviting, but Jennifer and David’s place is even more enchanting in person. David kindly welcomed me even upon my late checkin, and he provided a helpful overview of the home and land. The studio is incredibly charming and comfortable, and the tranquility of the surroundings is refreshing. I enjoyed hot tea while walking through the trees and a family of deer greeted me, as friendly and casually as if they felt the same way about this place as I did. It was the perfect bookend to my stay in Boulder. I would recommend it to any couple or solo travelers, in a heartbeat.

The views are beautiful. I wish I had had more time to enjoy the light through the trees. The canyons around Boulder and their land are so beautiful during sunrise and golden hour (just before sunset).
