Fodor's Expert Review Colorado Chautauqua

900 Baseline Rd., Boulder, Colorado, 80302, USA Fodor's Choice

Surrounded by nature, this cluster of historic cottages plus two lodge buildings is at the base of the Flatirons in Chautauqua Park, one of the loveliest parts around Boulder. You can rent the Mission Lodge (named for its period style), rooms in the basic Columbine Lodge (each with a kitchenette), or 59 different cottages. Settle in and imagine life when this community was established—during the chautauqua movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Delve into this charming Boulder village's colorful history on a cell-phone tour, hike out your front door, enjoy a meal in the dining hall, and attend a concert on a summer evening. There's so much to do here, and everything breathes period character and charm.
