I appreciate and cater to the discerning traveler who looks for convenience, style, clean abundant living, and the diversity this property offers. This property is among long time and full time residents. This is not meant to be a 'party property' so please make other plans if that is your intended use.

This property is normally the owners primary residence. While there are some personal belongings you the guest are invited to make this property your home for your stay.

If you are accustomed to hotel amenities, concierge and surroundings this is not for you. If you are open minded and enjoy finer things with someone else's personal flare you are looking at the right property. This is a fabulous location and a special and intersting property.

In and attempt to mange expectations please know I (the owner) have had some experiences with hunting animals and these items are displayed here. If this is offensive to you please consider another property.

Keywords: Charming 1 bedroom/studio. This is a main floor unit in an older building of 3 total apts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your Spruce Street rental! It was warm, inviting and cozy. I just loved watching the leaves fall outside the windows! Also, it is in a marvelous location! Close to all of the downtown eating and attractions. I can not wait to stay there again!

It is always special when we come and visit our kids, but your rental made it even more special this time!

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect home to stay in during our visit to Boulder. We hiked all day and just wanted to relax in the evening and this home was perfect for that. The house was clean, had all the necessities needed for a long weekend, and the living room and bedroom could not have been more comfortable. In the evening, we enjoyed on the quaint front porch, which is wonderful as the home is set back on the property so is more private than most homes on the block. The neighborhood is charming and close to Pearl Street.

Our favorite stop in the morning was Spruce Confections - a quick walk and delicious!

If you're up for some great hikes, we recommend Eldorado Canyon State Park outside of Boulder and also Diamond Lake in Nederland. Both offer breathtaking views.

Lovely apartment in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect. West end of Spruce in quiet neighborhood but only 2 blocks from Pearl. The apartment is updated, nicely furnished and has lots of natural light. It is a perfect size for 1-2 people. Nice open floor plan. The kitchen offers a gas stove and all the necessary gadgets. The bedroom is small but the large bed is very comfortable. Lots of outside patio furniture to enjoy the outside space. Overall, a very warm inviting space. I will look forward to returning to this VRBO rental during my next Boulder visit.

Wonderful spot, inside and out, one block from Pearl St!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, fabulous outdoor spaces, comfortable interior, nice cozy mattress with pillow top, everything one could need. And proximity to Pearl Street can't be beat! Bike store to rent a bike just one block away, Italian restaurant with great food one block away. And Rusty provided every piece of info you could need, flashlights, and made it very easy to get in and out. Thank you Rusty for a wonderful visit! You will be my first choice for future trips to Boulder to see my daughter!

We stayed at 937 Spruce St in Boulder for our recent vacation. The property was perfect; beautiful home, very comfortable, spotlessly clean. The home is in a great location within easy walking distance to the shops/amenities on Pearl St. Mall. The neighborhood was quiet, both day and night. We couldn't have asked for anything more and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Boulder. Thank you, Rusty!
