Red Feather Lakes house description

This mountain home, aptly named 'Starry Nights', was built in 2003 and sits on the North Fork of the Cache La Poudre River in a breathtaking valley surrounded by majestic mountains. Starry Nights is approximately a one hour drive from Fort Collins and is conveniently situated amongst a multitude of fishing lakes, ponds and streams; as well as hiking, biking, walking and snowshoe trails. Wildlife find safe haven on the seven acres surrounding this easily accessible mountain property. The beautifully appointed riverfront home has a covered front porch, a large back deck, and, just across the on-site footbridge, is a wonderful screened outdoor gazebo.

Inside the home, Starry Nights offers a bright, open living space with expansive vaulted ceilings, modern decor and (amongst other unique qualities) a private loft with an amazing view of the surrounding mountains...perfect for enjoying a warm drink and your favorite book. The home has modern dining and kitchen areas as well as a beautiful gas log fireplace to warm your body and your spirit. The rustic furniture and mountain decor lend a cozy feeling to the home. The beautiful breakfast bar and dining table are surrounded by windows, allowing you to catch glimpses of wildlife as you enjoy your morning coffee or evening meal.

As you step off the back deck, you can either walk across the footbridge to the private gazebo, or just walk straight to the edge of the property to drop your fly line in the North Fork of the Poudre River. Nothing stands in your way.

At night, you can cook in, eat out at one of the local restaurants, grill on the back deck, or roast hot dogs and marshmallows at the on-site fire pit. Or, quietly relax in the Master Suite’s custom-built four poster queen bed or warm your bones in the jetted tub after a long day of reeling trout out of the river. For a breath of fresh air and privacy, step out to the second story balcony and soak it all in.

Take a break during the day, and explore what the local communities have to offer. Minutes from Starry Nights are several restaurants, an amazing golf course, Beaver Meadows ranch, and Red Feather Lakes village which carries all the essential amenities (food/drink) and even an ice cream fountain and several craft shops. Details are located in the Googlemap on this page.

Starry Nights is easily accessible year-round and just minutes from the Crystal Lakes Base Camp. There are two electric RV hookups and grey/black water disposal on-site. An extra fee applies for RV use. A Colorado fishing licence is required, and daily fishing fees apply within the confines of the Crystal Lakes mountain community.
