Space 350 sq. ft.
Property type cottage


About the property

A beautiful, quiet cottage close to downtown Boulder.

This beautiful stone cottage sits at the base of the Foothills and open space. Hiking and running trails are out the door, and bike riding is abundant. It is within blocks of the bus route to downtown, and only about 1.5 miles to the Pearl Street Mall. The cottage is entirely new in the interior with custom and high end finishes. It has a distinct beach feel on the inside with lots of light and an airy layout. The kitchen features a fire clay farm sink and refrigerator draws, and stocked with cookware. The bathroom has a custom made fused glass counter and glass tile in the shower. The floors all have radiant heat. The outside sitting area is quiet and private. The main floor has a full bed and the loft has twin beds. A small goldfish pond and water feature sit outside the door creating a gentle and soothing sound.

Enjoy your coffee in the morning and your wine in the evening while sitting out in the garden. Ride bikes to town, or walk. Start your mornings with a hike on Mt. Sanitas out the door. Run the hills to the west, or the flats to the north. We can direct you to our favorite hikes, runs and rides. While the kitchen is fully equipped, the restaurants close by are worth a visit. Explore the Farmer's Market that Bon Appetit named one of the country's top 10 on Saturdays from April to November.

About Lindasue Smollen

I have lived in Boulder since 1982 after moving here from the East Coast. I fell in love with Boulder after doing an internship in Colorado during a summer of graduate school and drove out the day after graduation, and consider it the best decision of my life.

Lindasue Smollen purchased this cottage in 1986

Why Lindasue Smollen chose Boulder

The cottage is part of my property and I have lived here for 30 years. I love to garden and my gardens have been on the Garden Tour and this is my private paradise. You will feel the same.

Boulder Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lindasue was a very gracious and warm host. We loved the cottage - it was small but a perfect fit for a family of 3. Excellent location with easy access to hiking and all that Boulder has to offer. We'll be back - wish it could be our second home!

Little details make this place fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our brief time in this cottage. It's close to the Boulder action as well as the Flatiron hiking trails. Lindasue stocks everything a visitor could need, including delicious farm-fresh eggs and local treats. Highly recommended.

Cozy, pristine, and amazing host

  • 5 of 5

The place is small, as described, but more than makes up for it in the efficiency of design, cleanliness, and relaxing outdoor area. Plus, Lindasue is the nicest host I have ever had throughout many bookings. Overall a great stay!!

We had a great stay at this tiny house. Really cozy and well designed.

  • 4 of 5

Great locatation in No Boulder. Quiet. Owner could not have been nicer. Fridge was Totally stocked with breakfast stuff, local craft beer, wine. Even gave us a ride when our uber failed us. Beds comfortable. We were a family of 4. kids were 14 and 18. Owner warned us it was small. I'd go back w my husband or by myself with one kid. Well designed small kitchen area with everything you would need. Mountain trails less than a block away.
