The SpaceThe home was built in 1910 during Lyons' boom-town days. Two bedrooms feature queen beds, fresh linen, and closet space. The home has a large dining/living room, a sunporch for lounging or breakfast, and a full kitchen. The backyard is being developed into a micro-orchard of fruit trees and berry plants, and is a great place to share a meal. Guest AccessGuests have access to the whole home, including 2 bedrooms and "bedroomette," the living/dining rooms, bathroom, sunporch, kitchen, laundry room, and backyard.
Within a 5 minute walk of the house are a handful of Lyons' eateries, cafes, and watering holes, as well as a small market, post office, pharmacy, bakery, antique shops, art gallery, florist, parks, St. Vrain Creek, and more. The festival grounds are about a 10 minute walk. Interaction with GuestsI keep a small studio cabin in the backyard where I stay when I have guests. I enjoy meeting and interacting with guests, but I am happy to give guests privacy at their preference. The NeighborhoodLyons is a charming community of musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, outdoor-lovers, foodies, gardeners, and warm-hearted generous folks. Getting AroundThe town is quite walkable, and there are public buses that run daily to Boulder and Longmont on weekdays. During the summer, there is a free weekender shuttle between Lyons and Boulder. Other Things to NoteIn general, I hope guests will make themselves at home and feel free to ask me questions if they need something. The home is my principle residence, so please respect the house and furnishings like you would your own.
Upon arrival, I will give guests a brief tour of the home and answer any questions if I am around. If not, I will provide necessary information beforehand.
