Summer is in full swing, and we’re loving the warm weather, sunny skies, and long days spent with our dogs by our sides. Each week, we’ll pick our favorite dog friendly Airbnb vacation rental in a city we’d love to visit—so you can pack your suitcase, grab the leash and get out of town.

Charming two-story guest cottage – Houses for Rent in Boulder


Where You’ll Stay:
The mountains are calling and it’s time to answer. Whether you’re a downtown Denver dweller or just looking for a refreshing new vacation spot, this Boulder Airbnb has everything you need for a mountain getaway with your four-legged buddy. So pack up your favorite hiking boots, bike helmet, and some dog snacks because this destination is the perfect place for you and your pup to roam.

The view of the mountains never gets old in Boulder. A picturesque college town and outdoorsy destination filled with any and every activity your adventurous self could possibly want—from live theater to lovely bike paths, hiking trails galore, Pearl Street shopping and nightlife, sustainable farm-to-table dining, and more.

Why We Love It:
Mere steps from hiking, bike trails, and a charming downtown this quaint two-story cottage is the perfect mix of nature getaway and city charm. With a backyard perfect for your pooch to roam and a second floor “perch” built for stargazing, this Boulder Airbnb locale is built around two things: charm and comfort. Plus, the owner of this cute cottage is a Colorado native and a certified rock climbing instructor—if she can’t give you the details on how to have a perfect Boulder weekend, no one can! 

What You Need to Know:
Amenities at this quintessential cottage range from premium cable (though we doubt you’ll spend much time indoors) to free parking. At $175 a night for the first two guests and $50 for an additional guest, there’s no reason not to roll into Boulder.

Editor’s Note: As always, we recommend that you check with the dog friendly Airbnb homeowner for specific restrictions on breed, size, or number of dogs allowed in the residence.
