About Linda Cowan

Linda arrived in Boulder in 1956, age 10. After many comings and goings over the years and a career in commercial interior design, Linda moved back to Boulder in 1995 with Jeff and their then 10-year-old son, Ethan. Jeff worked at NCAR in super computer administration until retiring in 2013. Now we are putterers, Linda in the garden, Jeff in his woodworking shop. We love Boulder and our Golden Retriever, Wylie, and try to go to a movie every Tuesday when it's a bargain. Linda loves opera, Jeff loves jazz.

Linda Cowan purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Linda Cowan chose Boulder

In 1995 we wanted to move to Boulder to be near Linda's parents and get away from the Silicon Valley rat race. Linda scouted houses in every part of town, looking (listening!) primarily to avoid traffic noise and enjoy good south sunlight. This neighborhood is is the quietest! It also has Open Space to the west and south so that it can't expand in a way that requires new roads! It turns out this is the only place we've lived where we know our neighbors and they know us!

What makes this apartment unique

The first time I walked up the stairs into this bi-level home I was grabbed by the light and knew this was the one. Walking on nearby mountain park trails is a major perk.

Very nice basement apartment. Well maintained, clean, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights in this VRBO and had an excellent experience. So much nicer than a hotel, easy entry/access, close to hiking trails, everything you could need included, even laundry facilities. Very reasonably priced, a quiet neighborhood. Hosts are friendly yet give total freedom to come/go. We will certainly stay here again when we return to visit our son in Boulder.

Comfy Boulder Apt close to trails

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom apartment was a pleasure to stay in. It was clean, comfortable and had plenty of space for two people. The bed was comfortable, the temperature was comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with basic supplies such as spices, sugar, etc. I was a little worried about staying in the same house as the owners but it was very quiet and you didn't even know that they were there. It was so much nicer than staying at a hotel. I would absolutely stay there again. The house's location was also perfect as it was close to many foothill's trails and just a very pleasant neighborhood. Linda was also very good with answering questions and showing us everything in the apartment. Just a totally good experience.

A gem

Spacious, spotless, comfortable accommodations with easy access to open space trails. The host put a lot of thought into creating a welcome space for her guests. Our family felt right at home.

Lovely Boulder retreat well located

  • 5 of 5

This clean, spacious suite is fully equipped for cooking, relaxing and sleeping. Comfortable Sleep Number bed, nice bathroom with amenities, living room and eating area. Linda is so helpful and available. She suggested hiking Eldorado Canyon State Park, 15 min drive- truly scenic. The house is in the close suburbs which requires a car. Yet it's within 15 minutes of CU Boulder campus, Pearle St, good restaurants and hiking. So glad I found this home away.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Jeff and Linda's rental loft! A spacy one bedroom apartment with kitchen and living room. My girlfriend and I rented it for a week while exploring Colorado! Great access to flatiron hikes, pearl street shopping, in a great quiet neighborhood. Jeff and Linda were very kind to us and were great hosts. Boulder was by far the best part of our Colorado experience. We dined and shoped at Boulders Farmers market on Wednesday and Saturday, then hiked nearly everyday we stayed local. Great time, great property, great people! Highly recommend this location!
