Foot of the Mountain Motel
Property information by Wcities, Inc
Those who are looking for a happy medium between the mountains and the city will find this quaint motel a perfect fit. Established in 1936, it is the oldest continuously operating motel, and its stellar location provides secluded comfort, nestled in the entrance to Boulder Canyon, at the foot of Flagstaff Mountain. Although the log cabin rooms appear rustic, they feature the latest in modern amenities. With its 18 charming rooms and 2 cozy suites in a mountain setting next to Boulder Creek Path, downtown Boulder is a short commute and some of the area's best hiking trails are right outside the door. Cable television, in-room phones, refrigerators, wireless Internet access make up the amenities of the motel.
Foot of the Mountain is not for those who want the latest high-tech, high-gloss, pampered cookie-cutter lodging. I stayed here in 1960 on my first trip through Boulder, and again in 2005 on a return trip. It had not changed much in 45 years, but is still comfortable, quiet, and absolutely unique.
The bed on my most recent trip was comfortable and the sound of nearby Boulder Creek to lull one to sleep was just what I needed. The bathroom is dated, but in keeping with the rustic nature of the motel. IMHO, this is a perfect romantic getaway, tucked up at the end of Arapahoe Avenue, near the mouth of the canyon. Though there are no restaurants within easy walking distance, nothing in Boulder is very far from anywhere else.
If you are, like I, pulled by being close to Nature, this is the place for you while staying in Boulder.
Our family stays here on nearly all of our frequent trips to Boulder. It's rustic, not fancy, but it's scrupulously clean and we've had excellent service from the friendly owners & staff every time we've visited. We no longer stay anywhere else if we can get a room at the Foot o' the Mountain. :)
