Property description

This property is especially friendly to families and couples that enjoy a 5K cross country ski or run through open space, two groomed parks, tennis and volleyball courts and a mountain view. All right across the street. A furnished deck, fenced back yard, canoe, picnic wagon and children's outdoor toys make for summer fun. Take a 15-mile bike ride on the Greenway or drive 44 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park and its 355 miles of hiking trails.
WIFI, cable tv, dvds, table and electronic games, a wood burning fireplace and a fully supplied kitchen with extras make being inside nearly as much fun as being outside. Cooks will enjoy finding tools, appliances and even basic spices available for meal preparation, inside or outside on the charcoal grill. See VRBO #252109 for more details.
Just inside, the kitchen has all upgraded appliances including a double oven, cookware, eating and serving supplies you could need, including a coffee maker, microwave, Kitchen Aid blender and a Kitchen Aid mixer. Basic cooking supplies are available if you need a cup of flour, some salt or a pinch of spices.
From a viewing deck, accessible by sliding and french doors off the master and 2nd bedroom, enjoy a long view of Lake Macintosh, Long's Peak--great light and shadows in early mornings and dusk year round! Play tennis or practice your basketball shots (dribble the short walk to the half court). Put the kids in the big yellow utility wagon with a picnic, soccer ball, roller racers, fishing poles or kites to either of the two parks you pass on your run around the lake where they can play in well-maintained playgrounds and grassy areas--plenty of room for Frisbee tossing or kite flying.
Fishing (catch and release), volleyball courts in each of the two parks, tennis courts across the street and a half-court for basketball pick-up in one of the parks. Owner provides a canoe with nifty trailer, paddles and life jackets for adults and children can be pulled across the street for a fun hour or two on the water.
Enjoy evening visits or family game time in the family room. Television with cable, video and board games are available. WIFI is available throughout. Or, if it is chilly outside, a wood fire in the fireplace will warm you up and the firewood is provided. Owner is on property to care for yards, snow and to promptly address your needs and concerns.
Longmont is a surprising community, with an excellent library, interesting downtown with lots of art and antique shops, a beautiful commemorative rose garden with dozens of varieties, bicycle, rollerblading or walking paths, including the St. Vrain and the Left Hand Greenways among others, recreation and athletic facilities including the YMCA and Longmont Recreation Center (both have indoor pools and water slides), lots of restaurants and fast food outlets.
Boulder's ''no growth'' city ordinances have pushed many retail markets to Longmont. In that 1/8 mile from the home, you will find Safeway, Blockbuster, Green Cleaners, Subway, Daylight Donuts, Restaurants and Pizza and in Longmont you will find major restaurants and shopping within short drives or bicycle rides.
Within 2 hours of many ski areas, including some of Colorado's smaller gems, such as El Dora. Estes Park and the infamous Stanley Hotel is just 45 minutes west at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Forest. See http://longmontcolorado.gov/departments/departments-n-z/parks-open-space-trails for information on parks, open space and trails.
