With deck furniture for 6, new gas grill, charcoal grill, outdoor speakers and Wi-Fi throughout the property, the backyard truly is an extension of the house and has plenty of privacy thanks to the home's placement and orientation. Enjoy the organic feel of native stonework as every step, path and patio stone was excavated from the property

During your stay, enjoy easy proximity to downtown Lyons. Mere blocks from the Stone Cup & Barking Dog coffee shops, Button Rock bakery, St Vrain & Steamboat Markets, Oskar Blues. Walking distance to the St. Vrain river with riding distance to world-class mountain and road biking, excellent hiking. 20 mins from downtown Boulder, 30 mins from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park

There may be no other Front Range experience quite like this. Intimate, stunning yet comfortable and casual, an ideal base for day trips and adventures or the perfect spot to just chill and watch the afternoon thunderstorms form over the Continental Divide before making their way down the canyon by day and by night enjoy the breathtaking Colorado stars
