“Up close and personal with the Boulder Flatirons”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

The Boulder Chatauqua is a great place for a hike (easy to challenging), a picnic, a nice meal or a concert. If you're in Boulder be sure to get up to the property. Summer is our favorite time to go yet it is beautiful in all seasons.

“Great Hiking- be careful with your dog, not allowed on all trails”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

As many have stated, this is a great place to hike which is easily accessible. If you want to hike to Green Mountain, you're really not supposed to bring your pet because part of the approach is a dog free zone.
You're almost guaranteed to see deer when visiting here.

“A Must See in Boulder!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

If you are in the Boulder area, this place is a must see. Lots of beautiful views, hiking from strolling to expert and a wonderful restaurant where you can sit on the porch (or inside) and add to the trips enjoyment. There are picnic tables, tennis courts, a little playground for the kids, excellent dog walking experiences and sometimes beautiful music coming from the concert hall.
Whichever season you choose to visit, bring your camera for some wonderful photo opportunities! Lots of friendly people willing to take your photo as well.

“Great Service and Buffalo Rueben”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We dined here recently and really enjoyed the experience. Starters were very good and I must comment on my Buffalo Rueben. It was prepared in house and may have been the best one I have ever had. The service was great. Connor was our server. He was very personable and well versed in the menu options. We will certainly return.

“Lovely mountain park”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I live three blocks from Chautauqua so I have had a chance to explore the many trails, go to the concerts in the summer and just generally enjoy the open space and superb views for a long time now. All I can say is this is the great outdoors at its best. The Dining Hall food is very good.
