Welcome to Casa Catalpa! This private garden apartment for up to 4 guests is perched on a hillside surrounded by gardens, open space and stunning views of Longs Peak & Steamboat Mountain. Hike from the house up a short trail to enjoy the endless peaks of the Continental Divide. Walk to downtown Lyons in 10 minutes for amazing coffee, parks, art studios, live music, farm-to-table dining, and a one of a kind vintage pinball parlor.
Beautiful and funky, art-filled downstairs garden suite with an open floor plan and plenty of natural light with garden-view windows on three sides.
Our garden is alive with flowers, butterflies, songbirds, and bees. Expect visitors ranging from deer to fox.
We have one of the hands-down, best views in Lyons. And you have your own private outdoor patio, plus access to a seating area in the garden, to enjoy it from!
The kitchenette contains an electric stovetop, microwave, mini-fridge (stocked with filtered water and a few staples). For breakfast we provide coffee (dark roast, french press) + tea, fresh eggs from our chickens, bread, jam and organic butter.
Two extremely comfortable queen beds with brand new high thread-count sateen bedding. One is a platform, one is a mattress on the floor.
There is a drop-leaf dining table that seats four when fully extended, that can also serve as a laptop station.
The bathroom has a standard bathtub & a shower with fantastic water pressure. An ample double-wide closet in the bathroom contains a large dresser and plenty of storage for all your belongings. Ironing board- and iron provided upon request. Laundry service provided upon request, for a small additional fee.
Help yourself to the provided yoga mat-or if you have a musical soul- to the beautiful upright piano. For entertainment we have a lending library, plenty of games, DVD library and a TV that only plays DVDs.
Traveling with children? We are happy to provide a trunk of children's toys and books. We can source a traveling crib if given ample notice.
This apartment is perfect for a single person, couple, small family, or up to four friends.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests access privately through a lit path along the side yard to a secured back entrance. Come and go as you please! You are welcome to enjoy the lower grounds of the backyard garden.
Note: Check-out is 12pm and check-in is from 3pm-10pm. That 12pm-3pm block is our window to clean if there are new guests arriving that day. HOWEVER: Please inquire about the potential for early baggage drop-off, earlier check-in, OR late check-out- we are generally happy to accommodate if there is a space between bookings.
We are usually available to personally check you in between 4pm and 7:30pm. If you need to arrive before or after that window, just let us know and we will provide instructions on how to let yourself in.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are friendly and will make ourselves available within reason. We are very happy to provide recommendations for local restaurants, parks, and hiking adventures. We both work outside of the home but our nanny is often available during the day for assistance and you are welcome to call Erin or Jamba with any questions. When we are not at work we are often in the backyard gardening, or hanging with our kids and the chickens, but we respect your solitude just as we expect you to respect our quiet nights after 10pm. We offer a non-smoking, drug-free environment.
We expect quiet at night after 10 pm as we're in a more subdued housing area. There is a family upstairs with 2 children (9 and 4) and we will be as quiet as possible, but if you are noise sensitive, consider yourself forewarned as it can be noisy with the sound of running feet if they are at home. (They've been really good at being respectful when we've hosted guests thus far).
We just installed a door into the bathroom for optimum privacy for multiple guests!
Please note this apartment is one level, but not wheelchair accessible.
Quiet time after 10 pm. Absolutely no smoking. We appreciate if you leave your shoes at the door.
We are an outgoing family of four that loves to travel, read, hike, cook and garden. We moved to Lyons a few years ago from Boulder and have fallen deeply in love with the town, the magical community and surrounds- we are so excited to share it with you!
