This cute cottage is light, bright, and clean. Easy walking distance to the heart of downtown Fort Collins. Josh was attentive and easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A nice quiet and cozy stay.

  • 5 of 5

My stay was 3 nights in the middle of winter with snow on the ground. The house was warm when I arrived and they have stocked the place well. Everything from nice towels to a comfy bed to hot tea and coffee. It is very clean and Josh was always available with communication on arrival to the information on my stay.

I would stay here again for sure.

Comfortable and Relaxing Thanksgiving Week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Josh's! Josh not only bought our turkey for us early, but he began the defrosting of it in the refrigerator ahead of our arrival! Josh couldn't have been more helpful; we borrowed certain pans that we needed to cook a complete Thanksgiving dinner for my son, and he was very accommodating. The apartment's kitchen is very well equipped with pans and utensils; we just needed a few more for all of the additional dishes we made. The apartment is light and airy. We enjoyed time in the apartment, as well as in the backyard on the patio. We will definitely become repeat visitors! Thanks, Josh!
