About Margaret Wood

I am an interior designer and Ron my partner of 30+ years is an engineer. We are both artists and our guesthouse and apartment showcase our works. We bought this property at auction 20 years ago and had big plans in creating a tranquil setting for travelers. We are impeccable with form, function and style and above all cleanliness and no clutter! We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoy caring for this unique property.

Why Margaret Wood chose Mead

This property is unique and one-of-a-kind. Lakefront properties where guest can walk out the door to fish are few. Close to most of Colorado attractions makes it a perfect place to stay.

What makes this apartment unique

Two large bedrooms one bathroom perfect efficiency kitchen for preparing meals all with views that go on and on...

Clean, Comfortable & Cozy.

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful. It’s clean & cozy.

I felt safe & comfortable during my stay. I loved all the beautiful sculptures on the property & the view overlooking the lake is fantastic. I could hear geese & even watched a squirrel running around. The owners have put a lot of care & thoughtfulness into their home. The bed was really comfortable, & I loved all the beautiful plants. I will stay here again if it’s available.

Margaret went above and beyond, and picked us up from our shuttle. Kitchen and bath were both very well appointed. Lovely finishes and original artwork. Highly recommend!

Incredible, beautiful, peaceful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Our situation was a bit different, we live nearby and had to leave our house during some toxic renovation work. We had to bring our older cat with us as well. Margaret and Ron were so helpful and worked with us to make our stay a wonderful experience for us all.

The apartment is fully stocked with more than you could ask for in a B&B experience, the full size fridge was great, we lived there and went to work everyday, but it is close to Mead and Longmont so you don't need to cook. The balcony overlooking the lake was magical. We pretty much just sat out there and watched the wildlife and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the country. We happened to be there over the full moon and all I can say is WOW! The property is chock full of amazing sculpture by Ron and decorated with art by Margaret and it really felt like home.

Ron and Margaret are available if needed but you can also feel like the place is your own private space. We were so grateful to find a place that fit our needs, was incredibly beautiful, and had amazing owners. And you will love the puppies too!

We would recommend this little gem wholeheartedly. It is an experience.

Why would anyone want to stay in a hotel?

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was beautifully designed and so well equipped! It's all in the details. From the plush towels and great bedding to everything you should need stocked in the bathroom and kitchen. We have stayed in many home a ways all over the country and this apartment had so much thought put into it, it was a pleasure staying there. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is we found the door situation a little strange as the owners could enter from the interior if they chose to without knocking. Of course they did not and they were totally non intrusive. We will stay there again on our next visit to Denver.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Margarete and Ron really have it figured out as to how to host guests. All of the little conveniences that you would like to enjoy at home are included, right down to a few essentials in the kitchen. It's in a rural area and about 10 minutes from shopping area. Nothing to complain about during our 2 night stay. Thank You Margaret and Ron
