  • Family Vacation

    "The condo was exactly as described. Beautiful, clean and nice views. We went with our grown kids and they were able to occupy the upper level & had their own privacy and own deck. We cooked most of the time and the kitchen has everything you need with very nice appliances, cookware, dishes, etc. We brought our bikes and it's just a short ride to Estes Lake bike/walk trail and marina."

  • Quaint & Cozy

    "To all interested in being close to the many trails offered in the Boulder/Superior area, don't stay at a hotel! This little cottage offers all the amenities of home and more. Every item is perfectly placed and feels so good to spend time in. The sun room looks out over the spacious lawn with hardwood trees. You can come in from touring the area and cook a nice meal and then watch a movie. Every comfort has been well thought out. We had a great stay! Thank you!"

  • Wonderful Gem in Boulder

    "The Crooked Gate House is one of the best vacation rentals my husband and I have ever stayed at--and we have stayed in a lot of places. The house provided everything we needed for a comfortable week-long stay but was not cluttered with nonessentials or personal trinkets (which is important for us). It was beautifully renovated and decorated, and we just felt quite at home being there. The north Boulder location was great too. In a few minutes, we could walk to a local grocery store and cafe or to the edge of town to venture up a mountain. We actually developed a deep fondness for north Boulder while there, and we will definitely stay in the Crooked Gate House if we return. Finally, the owners were gracious hosts who gave us helpful advice about the area and treated us warmly."

  • Colorado relaxation trip!

    "Stayed at this Estes Park property for a week in July with two "20+ somethings" for our summer vacation - a pilgrimage we take annually, renting a cabin in various areas of the state. The property is exactly as described in the owner's listing and was the nicest we've stayed in while in Colorado. The in house theatre room was a wonderful addition for the 20+ adults in the evenings with available movies and satellite TV. The cabin is cleverly decorated and has numerous features to make you feel like your at home. The only drawback we experienced was a lack of internet access for me to check-in at work and the college student to do his homework for his online class. We resolved this by visiting Estes Park wifi spots; however, the limited bandwidth provided in most public locations was slow. The fastest public wifi we located was at the library. Cell phone service at the cabin was good at all times (AT&T); however, wifi on their LTE network was much slower than we're used to. While the concept of "unplugging" always sounds good, it's not realistic for many of us even when on vacation. The 23 yoa and 26 yoa have announced that future vacation locations will need confirmed wifi."

Front Range Travel Tips

Colorado’s Front Range, a Great Vacation Destination

The "Front Range" is a colloquial term for the area located just east of the foothills of the Front Range. It covers the areas of Boulder, Black Hawk, Central City, Clear Creek County, Estes Park, Fort Collins, Golden, Greeley, Longmont, Loveland and Nederland. Situated less than an hour’s drive from Denver and its major airport, you will find yourself in the foothills of the Front Range Mountains. Average temperatures here are in the mid-20s Fahrenheit in winter to the high-80s Fahrenheit in summer.

Getting around this beautiful area could not be easier. Good interstate and main highways make accessing each of the wonderful cities and towns simple and convenient. In fact, there are more scenic and historic drives within easy distance of our Front Range vacation homes than any other state in the country.

An Ideal Outdoor Experience for the Whole Family

For a vacation where outdoor activities and sight-seeing are high on your "to do" list, you will be delighted with a Front Range lodging. Wherever you choose as a base your vacation, you will find plenty to do and see. It is said that the Front Range inspired the words for "America the Beautiful" and once here, you will understand why. To see the panorama that inspired these words, take the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. On the trip, you will pass by some of the oldest living things on earth--the bristlecone pines. Some of which are over 2,000 years old! Give the kids a taste of farm life by visiting a real working farm. Or visit the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forest and Pawnee National Grasslands for 1.5 million acres of wilderness with activities like horse riding, hiking and biking in summer and snowmobiling in winter.

For less active day trips, there are a variety of wonderful drives. The Mount Evans Scenic and Historic Byway will not only provide glorious views, it is also one of the best places to catch sight of the local bighorn sheep. The historic Lariet Loop encompasses the stunning Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, the town of Golden--famous for the Coors Brewery--and the sight of the grave of Wild Bill Cody, also known as Buffalo Bill. In Central City, the Victorian age opera house is worth a visit along with the historic Moffat Tunnel. A detour will take you to the ghost towns of Hesse and Apex.

The Majesty of the Mountains

If truly spectacular scenery is a must for your perfect destination, the obvious place to find view after amazing view is the Rocky Mountains. Winter here brings world-famous skiing and the fun continues throughout the year. Whether you want to ride a horse or a bike or just hike, there are an abundance of trails to explore, from easy to death-defying! Just imagine choosing one of our Front Range vacation rentals with the Rocky Mountains as your backdrop!

Pick a Vacation Home on the Front Range

The main reasons why vacationers choose our Front Range vacation homes are convenience, space and choice. We have a wide variety homes in whatever location best suits you, with as much space as you desire. Each home is equipped with everything needed to make the perfect vacation. Property owners are often available to assist with any last minute queries and recommendations. Whether you are a couple, family or large group of friends, there will be a perfect property for your needs. Whether you want a city base or a rural retreat, you will find an ideal home here. What better way to relax after an adventurous day than to return to a comfortable, well-equipped home!
