Innkeeper's Suite: Private Main Floor Master Suite in Old Town

Bedrooms 1
Space 500 sq ft
Property type guest house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Walk to CSU and Downtown

Once an actual B&B in Old Town, this was the Innkeeper's Suite-an incredible main floor master buffered from the main house (where the Host lives) by a solarium. Over 500 sq. ft. of hardwood floors, 9.5 foot ceilings, skylights, fireplace, private entrance off a patio w/a gas grill, room to lounge (TV/Roku) & work (Wi-Fi). Plus a King sized bed, large updated en suite bathroom & a mini kitchenette for snacks/easy meals. Prefer an Entire Place or traveling with others? Consider our carriage house, Li'l Buckaroo.

Great base and terrific location for accessing campus or downtown via walking or biking - Zagster bike station 1.5 blocks

One off-street parking space and your own patio with a gas grill off the private entrance to your suite. No additional guests or visitors please (we make an exception for CSU students whose parents stay here). Our main floor full kitchen may be available if arranged in advance due to our dogs.

I try to greet guests upon arrival and go over a few things but then I'm hands off unless you need something. It's nice to say hello if we see each other in the yard...

About Lisa

We love house projects and always seem to have plenty of them. We love to improve our properties and enjoy the aesthetic value of old houses and decorating them. Our philosophy is to have rentals we would be happy to live in ourselves.

Lisa purchased this guest house in 2012

Why Lisa chose Old Town

We moved from Minneapolis in 2002 in search of a milder climate. Our goal was always to live in Old Town and we realized that dream in 2010 and then invested in this property in 2012. Knowing we didn't need all the space for ourselves we always had it in the back of our minds to rent out rooms one day.

What makes this guest house unique

Originally a one story bungalow added on to by prior owners over the years. One of the last owners undertook a major remodel and turned the home into a bed and breakfast. We have expanded on that by creating an apartment over the carriage house garage and are still making improvements to the main house towards maximizing its potential.

Innkeeper's Suite: Private Main Floor Master Suite in Old Town
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Quiet and comfortable, with wonderful ensuite bath

  • 5 of 5

The Innkeeper's Suite is a great alternative to the high priced hotel rooms in the area. We found it to be very comfortable, with many amenities. We were within walking distance of a number of restaurants. The ensuite bath is spacious, with an AirMasseur air-jetted tub and a huge shower. The parking in the alley is very convenient, and there seemed to be a lot of open parking on nearby Mathews Street if needed. We did not hear any street noise, even with a busy street only two blocks away. Lisa was great to work with (we never actually met in person, conducting all of our interactions via text and email). Our security deposit was refunded quickly and with no issues. All in all, we had a great experience!

This Property Truly Does Have It All

  • 5 of 5

Great location to walk to downtown Fort Collins for dining, entertainment and drinks. Every need you might have is answered in the Innkeeper's Suite. Lisa and her husband manage their property very well and are readily available to answer any questions, offer suggestions. Very beautiful bathroom and plenty of storage to set toiletries. Bedroom has fireplace, high ceilings and plenty of storage for those who unpack. Higher quality linens, pillows and towels plus plenty of spring water in gallons for guests. Private parking spot with alley access.

Quaint and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. A very comfortable and quaint room with all of the modern touches one needs. The bath room is very nice, large and well done. The bedroom and sitting area around the fireplace is tastefully decorated. This place would be great for a romantic weekend getaway. Close to downtown and all the city happenings.

Charming, clean, and well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property in a great location. The suite is spacious for two, with nice armchairs to relax with a book by the window and a semi-private patio to lounge outside. My wife and I spent three days and two nights walking to our favorite old spots - cinnamon rolls at Silver Grill Café, margaritas at The Rio, walks around the Oval. This rental is a great choice for a weekend getaway.
