The delightful and cozy one bedroom artist cabin is located next to our art studio. It is a fun place to be.
No additional charge for children three and under. We do allow pets; dogs only. Smoking of any kind is outdoors only. Please read the entire description of "The Space."
Welcome to our tranquil, sunny, sweet spot in the beautiful Eldorado Springs Valley, just minutes south of Boulder. Gorgeous views and nature surround you, from horses in the pasture next door to the local wildlife, such as deer, fox, and owl.
This special place has its own unique character and all the comforts of home. During the day in the warmer seasons, the road can be busy since there is the pool, hiking trails, and the state park located a few minutes away. By nightfall it's quiet and peaceful. You can see the stars.
The 350 square foot artist cabin has a kitchen with a lovely view, gas stove/oven, fridge, microwave, and other kitchen essentials. Light cooking is recommended since the stove isn't vented outside (i.e. cooking greasy meats such as bacon can set off the smoke alarm. Please keep gas stove burners on a lower flame).
The bedroom has a queen pillow top bed, dresser, closet, skylight, ceiling fan, and large windows. There is a tub/shower combo in the bathroom. The living room area has a comfortable, full size sleeper sofa, full kitchen, three skylights, ceiling fans and lots of light. The wall heater keeps the place toasty warm in the winter, and the ceiling fans keep things cool in the summer.
There's wireless internet access, a hand built brick patio and parking right near the front. The wifi can be spotty, so let us know so we can help with that while you're here. The artist cabin was built as an addition to our art studio. There isn't a space between the walls; it has its own wall and is its own private space. We do ceramics, painting, drawing in the studio during the day and early evening. We are quiet and respectful of our guests.
We also have three other listings on the property, the Awesome Reinvented Blacksmith Shop, the Sunny Eldorado Retreat and the Enchanting Eldorado Valley Abode. It's a fun, relaxed place to stay.
A fantastic trail system is just about a mile away, heading west on Eldorado Springs Drive, which you can drive or walk to. Enjoy hiking, running, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing, depending on the season. Two miles down the road from here is Eldorado Canyon, which features Eldorado State Park where hiking, world class rock climbing and scenic vistas happen. Also located in the canyon is the Eldorado Springs Pool, a wonderful artesian spring fed pool, so refreshing and fun in the summertime. Downtown Boulder seems a world away, although it is actually a 5-10 minute drive. There are bike paths all the way into town.
There is food shopping close by, King Soopers and Lucky's are about five minutes away, and Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and many other markets are a short drive into town. At our intersection, a mile away is the Eldorado Corner Market, a gas station/convenience store and a liquor store.
We are both artists and our home and studio are on the property. Feel free to come by anytime during your stay to chat and visit. We know a lot about the area and can help with ideas about things to do. We'd love to have you as our guests!
We live on the property and are available to help if you need anything.
You can have as much or as little interaction with us as you need.

Please ask and we can provide a blanket. Writing a review is greatly appreciated! Let me know if you have any questions and suggestions; I want my guests to be comfortable and happy.
I am a self employed artist and have lived in this beautiful valley since 1991, with my husband, Tom, who is a ceramic artist, teacher at a local community college, and a musician.
In the past, we spent a lot of time on the road, doing art shows with our two sons, who grew up here.
I have done a lot of traveling and enjoy meeting people from all over. One of the most memorable experiences of my life was when I lived in Italy for close to a year while I was in college in the early '70's. Part of the time I lived with an Italian family in Tuscany whom I adored. I would love to return there someday.
Some of the things I enjoy are being active in the outdoors and at the gym, cooking fun and healthy foods, growing vegetables and herbs, beekeeping, dancing and playing the cello. I love to read and collect all kinds of books, including novels, non-fiction and cookbooks. One of my favorite books is The Infinite Plan, by Isabel Allende.
We have had visits in our home with many guests from all over through the years, and it has been good times. I have learned to be open to having adventures and being spontaneous. My most memorable times have not involved much planning or expense.
