Recent Front Range reviews

  • You're doing something wrong if you don't love this home!

    "We had a wedding in Boulder and gathered our kids and grandkids in this home. It felt like more than a house to us so I specifically use the word "home". The ambiance, comfort and amenities were perfect. The location, the view, the yard were more than we expected as we signed up for this home by just looking at the VBRO listing. Want a great solution to your temporary housing needs -- just do it!"

  • Thanksgiving at Rock Bottom

    "We loved Rock Bottom Retreat! We spent Thanksgiving with our two young sons and two basset hounds in the 'cabin', and found it had everything we needed. Even though the Estes Park area was experiencing some major high winds during our stay, the cabin stayed warm and cozy. It's very clean, the kitchen well equipped, the beds comfortable, and the TV, wifi, and the hot tub definitely put it over the top! Close to our favorite spot for sledding in RMNP too. We plan to return for a longer stay next time and will certainly be recommending it to our friends. It felt like a real home away from home."

  • Incredible Experience

    "My family and I rented this property for our first Colorado vacation. It was exactly as described and pictured in the listing. The property was extremely clean and organized. We had everything we needed and more! The location is incredible! It literally is right on the Big Thompson river. We had a herd of elk visit Blue Spruce Drive on our last night staying in the cabin. We had to retreat into the cabin because they came so close...literally IN the front yard! I would highly recommend this property and would stay again myself with zero hesitation."

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!
