About this apartment

This unique greenhouse yurt combo sits atop a mountain in Gold Hill, an old gold mining town at 8,300 ft. ten miles west of Boulder.


Enjoy this 3 acre property with a 2,800 passive solar greenhouse and yurt! The full kitchen, bathroom, and laundry are in the greenhouse. The greenhouse is a short walk from the yurt that is perched on top of the mountain. The yurt is fenced in with about a half an acre.



***The greenhouse is in production for growing food for the surrounding community! This means that me as well as others will need access to the greenhouse to check on plants, harvest, climate control, etc. This will only be done during the day. Open greenhouse hours are noon-3pm!***



Please do NOT pick from the gardens. I will leave produce for you to enjoy in the refrigerator :)



The caretaker and co-host, Volta, lives part time on the property. She will not be sharing any facilities or space with you during your stay! Her spot is on the other side of the greenhouse. Feel free to ask her any questions if you see her!



Well behaved pets are welcome!



Open space surrounds the property with easy access to hiking trails and the quaint downtown of Gold Hill. There is a trail from the yurt that leads directly to town.



Please no fires during your stay.



Please keep all trash inside of the greenhouse to prevent frequent bear and mice visits!



*YOU NEED AWD OR 4WD TO GET UP AND AROUND HERE DURING WINTER MONTHS*

    Beautiful Yurt high above Boulder

    We had a great time staying at the yurt and our only regret was that we were not there for longer. This property is high above Boulder near the old historic town of Gold Hill. The property is not easy to get to because it is basically on the top of the mountain, but once there it is so quiet and peaceful. The yurt itself is really nice and comfortable.

    Nice little yurt in the middle of nature

    We had an excellent stay. The greenhouse kitchen area could have been a little cleaner and a coffee maker would be great. Also, the bathroom door did not close. If you are looking for something fancy, this is not it. If you are looking for a cute yurt with the essentials and a place to enjoy nature. This is for you! We had everything we needed and would definitely stay again. Great area. We saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed all the hiking in the area. Short drive to downtown boulder.

    It sure was a mountain get-a-way

    We would go back again. It was wonderful and Shelby was very accommodating. The location is on top of a beautiful mountain accessed by a dirt road. There seemed to be two roads you could take to get there. Lick Skillet Road is steep and would be best for bigger vehicles. My Kia Rio made it but Gold Hill Road is a much better road to drive for those without a mountain vehicle. My Google Maps kept wanting me to take Lick Skillet Road. The yurt was clean and the bed was very comfortable. There was a TV and fridge but nothing else. (The internet could be spotty with the TV and my computer seemed to work better with it than the TV). Everything else you would really need is in the greenhouse. It is beautiful there! Just be prepared...the elevation can mess with flatlanders. The short hike from the greenhouse to the yurt is kind of steep and for me, required stopping to rest. My husband was fine with it.
