About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft w 2 queen beds,(Sleeps 12), 2 Baths, Great Views


The unique aspect of this chalet style mountain home is its beautiful serene and scenic location. The choice is yours whether you prefer to simply relax without a care in the natural quietude under the Continental Divide of the Rocky Mountains, or engage in the numerous mountain activities at your doorstep. The right combination of both is waiting for you. There are two bathrooms one of which is a half bath with a toilet and vanity sink. For scores of guestbook reviews please click on the menu item in the owner information section of this description.

Sip your favorite refreshment in the large hot tub, while enjoying the mountain views all around you. A baby grand, drums and guitar are included for the musically inclined. A large fireplace will keep you toasty in the winter, and gentle mountain breezes will keep you comfortable in the summer. There is a large living room ceiling fan and a circulating air fan from the furnace There is no need for superficial air conditioning since mother nature provides it all.

While the city of Boulder is accessible in twenty minutes for the normal amenities such as dining, theater, music, sightseeing, and shopping, - - - the town of Nederland is only ten minutes away for satisfying basic needs. Sugarloaf Mountain Rd, which will bring you to the house, is maintained year round for safe access and driving. (By the way, the route that Mapquest type programs usually designates for you is actually twice as long as the local route.) Directions for the local route are included in the Registration materials you will receive.

Ski resorts are within ten to ninety minutes away. Mountain Lakes, fishing, hunting and camping are just minutes away. Be it summer or winter activities, this site offers it all.

Small special occasion 'events' like birthday parties, showers, weddings may be held here with the owners approval only. Contact owner for rates and info.

About Claude 'Larry' Fox

A Colorado native, I've lived in all parts of the state. I know what I love about Colorado and I spent years searching for the location that has it all. Well, when I found this home, I spent one hour without saying a word looking it over, then when the owner said 'What do you think?', I said 'Sold.' And I've been sold on it ever since. I actually get excited with the thought of vacation renters enjoying my place. (No, I do not stay here when it is rented to you.) I love sharing the specialness of my home. Everything special about Colorado is within immediate reach from this location. The dramatic and rugged wilderness of the Continental Divide, to the cultured sophisticated amenities of the City of Boulder. Anything you're in the mood for is only minutes away.

Claude 'Larry' Fox purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Claude 'Larry' Fox chose Boulder

As I said in my profile, I bought this home because in itself and in its surroundings, it constitutes the best of Colorado. This is my home and not merely a 'rental', but of course I do not stay here when I rent it out to you..

What makes this chalet unique

In the summer I love the balmy gentle warm breezes so much that I never want to go to bed.

In the winter the snow is beautiful and the occasional moose and elk herd that surrounds the house is a real treat to see.

A carpeted tree house is available for the young and/or young at heart, A very nice caretaker is on the premises one or two weekdays in a separate unit on the lower level of the building and is available to help you with any house emergencies which may arise. He is totally respectful of your presence and is unobtrusive. The house is independent of everything except electricity. Therefore, if anything should go awry it is important in the owner's absence to have a caretaker to resolve the problem. If for any reason he is not immediately available, you can reach the owner by phone who will then arrange for alternative assistance. Although a four wheel drive is not a requirement it is recommended that you have one during the winter months. Although the main road is a school bus route and is therefore always maintained, a four wheel drive will take the worry out of handling the snow.

Wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

It's a cosy and spacious mountain chalet with very scenic views. We greatly enjoyed our short but sweet stay here. Homy atmosphere combined with very hospitable welcome from the owner made us very happy.

During our stay we saw a magnificent adult moose, enjoyed birdwatching while relaxing in a huge hot tub! Strongly recommend for those thirsting carefree time close to nature. Hi-speed internet is working great, but the owner also provided some board games, books and such to make us feel at home and away from cyber world.

House is exactly as advertised, very much worth it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I feel great when the amenities here are enjoyed. Wildlife sighting is always a plus and I'm glad you got o see that bull moose. Playing board games in front of the fireplace is something I enjoy too. I use the hot tub almost every day and I'm glad you also found it enjoyable. It does have a great view and some music and a drink are a plus when using it. I really appreciate your kind review, hope you are able to return some day and will allow ten percent off if you do. Thanks again.

Amazing secluded mountain cabin with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing place with great views and easy access to RMNP and peak to peak drive. Boulder is close but not too close. Very peaceful place to hang out and enjoy the views and mountain weather. House has tons of room and all necessary supplies to cook meals, make fires, and clean laundry. Pack light and prepare for great star gazing.

Wonderful Escape

  • 5 of 5

House was great- tons of space,great secluded location with a wonderful view of the surrounding area. Clean space, easy check in/out. As advertised if not bigger/more luxurious. Only constructive feedback is that the grill had a lot of cooking debris in it which had to be cleared out to prevent a fire from starting.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed my place. The grill was immediately taken apart, cleaned and reassembled. Best regards, Larry

Excellent Birthday Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My fiancé and I rented Larry's cabin for my 30th Birthday Weekend. I booked late and arrived early, but Larry was more than accommodating! We really appreciated the extra effort he put into making our stay ultra comfortable. We found the home very cozy and enjoyed warming up next to the fire place after a dip in the hot tub. We also had a great time grilling on the back deck and trying out our piano and drum skills in the music area - a really fun addition! It was just the 2 of us, but the cabin can house quite a few guests with ample bedding and common space. I would highly recommend to others!

Going to see Grandpa

  • 4 of 5

Overall we liked this place. It was very secluded and quiet. The views and wildlife were great. There is a 30 min drive down the mountain but I thought it was nice drive.

The inside of the house was clean, kind of made you feel like you were visiting your grandparents house. The living furniture was a bit worn but still comfortable. The master bdrm (where my sister slept) was warm and the bed was nice. I slept in the room right next to her and I wasn't as comfortable. My room was freezing, like no matter how high the heat was the room was cold! Also the bed and pillows could use a bit of updating... Oh and we had to time our showers, if not then the last person in definitely got a cold shower.

The owner was cool too. Larry came and shoveled the deck for us. We left the car lights on and he was kind enough to let us know. Real chill guy.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Leiana. Unfortunately the last visitor closed the heat vent in that bedroom, which is why no matter how high you turned up the heat you didn't get any. Had you let me know, I could have remedied that immediately. Yes, the hot water heater takes about 40 minutes to heat up a new tankful of water. That's how most water heaters work. Otherwise I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and again thanks for the review.

Cross Country skiing and Snow-shoe hiking can be done out of the house on National Forest Land where there are old mining and logging roads which provide a good path for these activities. A trip down Boulder Canyon is a worthwhile and scenic ride. There are brooks, rivers and lakes in the area. Rocky Mountain National Park is nearby as are old mining and gambling towns like Central City and Blackhawk. Hiking will provide beautiful views of the Continental Divide and Rock Mountians.
