This is a private room with 2 and 1/2 shared bathrooms and shared common space. Refer to "Description" for specifics.

The space

If the calendar is unblocked, you can instant book the space and gain access whenever you like, you don't have to ask if it is OK, I am ready for you 24/7!

I welcome guests that come for short or long stays. There are 4 bikes that I rent out for $15-25/day, $100-175/wk.. Cash up front. The home lies on a very nice alley on the north perimeter of the Mapleton Hill Historic District 3 blocks from Mapleton, a quiet yet close-in location. It is also 3 blocks from a trailhead on the mountain backdrop and 7 blocks to Pearl Street pedestrian mall. Shopping with a grocery, coffee house and small scale retail is 5 blocks.

Rm. 1 is a regular separate room. You walk through the edge of Rm. 3 to access Rm. 2. There is a privacy curtain along the path to the door to Rm. 2. This has worked quite well for folks. There is a living room and full bath in the north side of the house where the available rooms are situated and a door between the north and the south side of the house which can provide privacy if needed. The south side of the house has a half bath/laundry, the kitchen/dining area and a sunroom leading to stairway access to my room, which has a 2nd full bath that can be used by anyone at any time. There is a patio, yard and detached garage with a studio on top that is in the process of being finished.

I intentionally live with space for others to share because I enjoy it, not just for income. Some of my interests-- Muncipalization of Boulder's electric supply with the increase in use of frack-free gas bridging to renewables. GMO-free agriculture. Thoughtful land use. Ethics. Architecture. World Affairs Conference. Historic Boulder. Chautauqua Music Festival. I do a lot of mostly functional bicycling (the exception of which is the Thursday Cruiser's Ride) or skiing on snow days, which is very convenient at this location. My profession is medical ultrasound imaging. Neighborhood annual EcoPass that is highly discounted is available and bus service is close and frequent.

There are many contraptions for creating edibles, a juicer, Cuisinart, espresso machine, pasta-maker, ice cream-maker, bread-maker, and the requisite microwave, toaster oven, 4-toast toaster and gas range. WIth notice I can even make extra ice cubes should you happen to be traveling with a cooler! Breakfast is provided for those with stays less than 5 days. I am very happy to share acquiring and managing food as it works out. Plentiful spices and condiments.

Guest access

The whole house is at your disposal, except for the rooms that someone else is occupying of course!

My stay at Lynn's place was delightful! It was very close to downtown, and Lynn's a wonderful host. She was very quick in answering, and did everything she could so my stay in Boulder was completely worry-free. I definitely recommend!

If you need a place to stay in Boulder this is the place. This isn’t a 5 star hotel, nor Lynn advertise as such. If you want to stay in a quaint part of town, in the historic district then this is a great option. Lynn saved my life during my business trip and really took me under her wing. She was always very helpful and we shared a lot of great conversations. I would totally recommend this place if you need a place a crash and be central to the Boulder culture.

If you can see past the rather unkept front garden and boarding on the garage, then you'll find Lynn a very friendly and attentive host. Comfy waterbed but no TV in room. Good wifi signal. Breakfast is included but I went aearly so didn't have any. Just close enough to walk to the town centre but is a good 10-15 mins.
