Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Fort Collins. The place was perfect. Fresh baked cookies were waiting for us, and the place was roomy and comfortable. And the view was an added bonus! We would stay here again.

Beautiful View - clean and nice basement apartment

  • 5 of 5

Super cute home on a peaceful lake. Very clean. The owners were great by email and just sorry we didn't get to meet them. Very accommodating as we brought a boat with us, and they allowed us to park in their driveway. It was a perfect get away. We hope to be back soon for another visit! (This time without our boat!) Lovely basement apartment attached to their home, with views from the basement out onto the lake.

Well-appointed and comfortable 1-bedroom apartment with all the amenities, written suggestions for local places, sweet touches such as cookies upon arrival, and a beautiful lake with chairs to relax for coffee in the morning or happy hour! We enjoyed our stay!

Peaceful and Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a peaceful and relaxing visit. The place was very clean and accommodating for our needs. We were in town for a week preparing our kids for college at CSU. We felt as if we were literally home away from home. It was nice to be able to go home with clean clothes. Having the washer and dryer was wonderful. Being able to walk out to the water and chill was another nice amenity. Homemade chocolate chip cookies were a hit. And the fresh flowers were also a nice touch. Thank you so much for making our first stay with VRBO such a nice experience.

Even with our one night stay it was well worth coming. We enjoyed taking the boats on the great lake, swinging on a swing and reaching for the stars and tops of the trees. The place had more than usual amenities, even providing beer and candy. Apt. is large, good for staying for extended time. The owners (on the premises) are very quick to respond, nice to deal with and extremely funny! Their apt. info is hilarious. You should come and stay just for that. We'll be back! Maybe by then their yard exploration for oil will be finished. Thank you for a great relaxed stay. See you again! Olga

Local breweries, Colorado State University, Horsetooth Reservoir, New West Fest, Tour de Fat. Poudre Canyon is a 30 min. drive away with lots of camping,fishing,hiking and rafting. Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park is just a 45 minute drive away with all of its beauty and splendor. Fort Collins is home to the beautiful Old Town area that inspired Disney to model his Main Street after. This is only a short bike ride or 4 min drive away. If you love to ski or snow board our choices are many: Steamboat is our favorite and it is a three hour drive thru the beautiful Poudre Canyon, or if you want a quick one day away I would go to Snowy Range for a day trip thru the Snowy Mountain Range. Fort Collins has a very long list of wonderful dining places to suit your culinary wishes. We can offer many suggestions and make reservations for you. We have lived here 30 years and just love the area and would be more than happy to make this a very enjoyable visit and relaxing stay!
