Boulder Guest House offers the comforts and amenities of a boutique hotel within the context of an urban Zen Buddhist practice center. The Victorian house, which has long been a bed and breakfast, has been updated to have a contemporary feel, inspired by Zen. This delightful boutique hotel offers a peaceful retreat-like atmosphere within walking distance of downtown Boulder and the University of Colorado campus. Each of the four guest rooms are simply and comfortably furnished in a calm aesthetic, and have private entrances and bathrooms, as well as reserved parking. Two of the rooms feature cozy, wood-burning fireplaces. The beautiful, 1890’s brick house was formerly the home of the historic Briar Rose Bed & Breakfast.
