Why The Owner chose Erie

I purchased the property to enjoy the benefits of bicycling and running on the Front Range and to enjoy the proximity of Boulder!Erie is one of the last quaint little coal mining towns that has been very nicely preserved and carefully introduced to tastefully finished cafes and parks.

Lesley's Casita is sparkling clean!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay! Susan and Mark , property managers who live right next door, excel so well at maintaining cleanliness and an ideal living situation.

Erie's Downtown on Briggs St is always festive., I love the Miners Tavern!

So happy to have had the opportunity to visit!

This was great location and quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The house was a 2 block walk to center of town. Great location and great size. Loved having the washer and dryer! And coffee in the morning on the back deck was nice and I saw hot air balloons go up several mornings. That was a special treat!

Wonderful, quiet place to stay in Erie CO

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 30 day stay in Lesley's Casita and will return again in July. This is a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of restaurants and a short drive to all other amenities. The house is small with two bedrooms and a large enough great room to lounge around in. The back and front porch are nice to sit outside and enjoy the mountain fresh air. Lesley returns emails promptly and Susie and Mark, the care takers, are right next door to help with any issues that arise, they are friendly and helpful. Great place!!

Cute, clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Cute little cottage type home. Had all the amenities we needed and was an easy walk to restaurants and brewery's in Erie. The only drawback was the short shower but I am pretty tall!
