The Colorado Chautauqua sets itself apart from other Boulder destinations as an oasis of respite, rejuvenation and enlightenment – offering inspired views of the Flatirons, front door access to Boulder’s famous hiking trails, and tranquil accommodations. Choose from nearly 60 unique cottages and two historic lodges. Chautauqua offers studio, 1, 2, or 3 bedroom cottages, each with fully equipped kitchens and most with screened-in porches. All accommodations are smoke-free and many are pet-friendly. From November to April, our guests enjoy our trails at their most peaceful, with an exciting season of concerts in Community House – and our lowest rates of the year!


Studio cottages are ideal for cozy, intimate or solo getaways. Make your own meals in our fully-equipped kitchens or take a short walk through our beautiful campus to the Dining Hall. Tired after a long hike? Relax on the screen porch and enjoy the fresh mountain air and an iced chai from the General Store. Pet-friendly and pet-free accommodations are available.

For additional studio accommodations in an apartment-style setting, please see Columbine Lodge.
