Loveland house description

PLEASE NOTE: This property is near the towns of Loveland and Berthoud, not the ski area and mountain passes by the same names.

“Haven on the Ridge” is ideally situated for those who want to enjoy Carter Lake and a Rocky Mountain experience, yet want easy access to recreational and entertainment opportunities along the Front Range. Located on 1.3 peaceful piney acres above the lake, this spacious vacation home is only 20 minutes from Loveland, 45 minutes from Fort Collins, and 45 minutes from Boulder. Rocky Mountain National Park is only 35 miles away. Slip into Loveland for the renowned Sculpture Invitational--the largest outdoor sculpture show in North America--or a performance at the historic Rialto Theater. But when ready for solitude, sit back on our 650-square-foot deck and take in the views, watch the deer browse beneath the ponderosa pines or drop a fishing line into the deep blue waters of Carter Lake.

Three miles long and about one mile wide, Carter Lake is a beautiful 1,100-acre reservoir surrounded by 1,000 acres of public lands. It's a great place to fish, sail, water ski, swim, scuba dive, hike, bike and horseback ride. Rent a sailboat or pontoon from the Carter Lake Marina, and after a day on the water lounge around our stone fire pit, tell tales and roast a few s'mores. Or relax in the master bathroom's jetted tub while the kids compete in games of table tennis, air hockey or Foosball.

Be sure to take the two-minute stroll to the top of the ridge and gaze out at the panorama of snow-capped peaks. Long's Peak and Mount Meeker stand out among the rest, but on clear days you can even spy Pikes Peak 100 miles to the south. Our home's ceiling-to-floor windows allow you to enjoy the vistas from indoors, as well. Even food preparation is a pleasure in the spacious kitchen with sweeping views of the eastern plains. And if not eating alfresco, the dining room table expands to comfortably seat 12 people.

Don't limit yourself to a summer visit. Family in town for an autumn CU game? Hold a family gathering at the Haven on the Ridge. Need a winter respite? Curl up with a book and hot drink while the snowflakes settle on the pines and rock outcroppings. Any reason in any season is a good one to come to the Haven on the Ridge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Todd and Joan are 30-year residents of Northern Colorado. They, together with their two sons and a beagle, have hiked, biked, skiied, fished and paddled extensively in Colorado. They live and work in Fort Collins and look forward to providing you with a memorable stay in their vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Loveland:
It's close to our home and other Front Range amenities, yet far enough to offer what people expect in the Rocky Mountains--views, a lake, pine forest and wildlife. Carter Lake is a gorgeous place for boating, fishing and other water recreation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy relaxing and dining on the deck, gazing at the stunning panoramas, watching the deer and song birds, boating with friends on Carter Lake and exploring the shops in Berthoud.
