Description of the Boulder vacation guesthouse rental
Rent by the Week for a Trial. No Obligation. No Lease.
If I have a room available for a longer stay and you are a good fit, we can talk about an extended stay. The price is likely between $800-$1000/month. All utilities included.

I provide a common room and small kitchenette set-up for our guests with a microwave, sink, coffee pot and flat screen TV. This way you have plenty of privacy. Free Wifi. You will also get access to my kitchen and Laundry Room on a limited basis (not available for week to week).

Who does this work for? Someone on a business trip, someone new to Boulder, someone that just needs a temporary stay in a home with a "good vibe".

This set-up is not appropriate for couples romps or late night partiers. I live downstairs, afterall. We will consider friendly pets, but you need to clean-up after them and they need to get along with our yellow Lab, Lance.

Prices quoted are PER BEDROOM/SINGLE OCCUPANCY.

Unsuccessful rental

July 11, 2010

I inquired about this guest room months ago but did not stay there. The person I contacted was helpful, but very briefly. I never heard back from her about the details, etc. I even asked about payment and was prepared to make a deposit. My daughter's attempts to see the rental were unsuccessful (she lives in Boulder). The realtor ultimately never called her back after they played phone tag a couple of times. Fortunately I found other accommodations. I'm not sure how this would have turned out if I HAD needed this room. I don't think the realtor did a very good job of communicating with me or my daughter.

Affordable but lacking in warmth

April 5, 2010

My husband, two children and I stayed two nights at the 3 Bears over February vacation. While it is in a great location and was clean and affordable (which counts for a lot in my book) I don't think I would stay there again given other options. The owner was not around a lot to answer questions (we never did meet her husband not that that mattered particularly)but we couldn't figure out how to make the water come out the overhead nozzle in the bath so we could take a shower (neither could the other guest who was staying there). Also, the dog was decidedly unfriendly to us and we are dog lovers (have one of our own). He scared the heck out of my 11 year old son who is a real animal lover. I don't know if she didn't "properly introduce us" to the dog or what. (We arrived around 10:30 pm the first night and kind of walked past the dog with her leading the way). If the host was present things were not great with the dog but okay...otherwise, we prayed the dog was locked up and ran for the gate. Very little warmth or graciousness from our host. We had been offered an inflateable mattress so my kids didn't have to sleep in the same double bed but it never appeared and our hosts did not anwer the knock on the door. Our kids were okay but it just wasn't ideal. All in all, not what we were expecting given the description of the place. Disappointing.

LACK OF RESPONSE

March 23, 2010

I tried to find out about renting this place but the owners never responded. Not good for business. I stayed at the Boulder Mountain Lodge instead and had a wonderful time. They are off Canyon Road a little out of the city....beautiful.

Great experience!

July 20, 2009

We had a wonderful time with our experience and the city of Boulder. The house was convenient to all of the Boulder amenities, (hiking, theatre, restaurants) and it was a lovely place to chill out after a day of adventure in Colorado. There is a beautiful yard, adorned with flowers and complete with a yellow lab (Lance) to play with your dog. The rooms are simple but sufficient and far more home-like than a stale motel room. Our hosts, Grace and Ed couldn't have been more accomodating. We would definitely stay here again.

lovely - but tall folks watch your heads!

May 12, 2009

I had a wonderful stay at 3 Bears. The house is in a great location, the hosts are wonderful, and the beds supremely comfortable. In fact, there was only one drawback I experienced, namely sloping ceilings in the bedroom and the common room (rooms are on the top floor). These could be awkward at times, and this is the one factor that keeps me from giving 3 Bears five stars. Highly recommended.

All pet friendly places should be this nice!

Our visit at the 3 Bears Home was fantastic. Privacy when needed, friendly people, nice big room, coffee in the morning and most importantly...dog friendly with plenty of room for the girls to run. Thanks again!
