Why Lynne Hondorp chose University North

Living most of our lives in Europe and the Middle East, we spent a year in Fort Collins in 2005 and fell in love with the community. Being close to Colorado State University in Old Town was our goal. We built this cottage in 2007 so that whenever we are in the US we would have a place that felt like home. We added landscaping and patios because we love being outside. We hand-carried ceramic tile from the Middle East to add a familiar touch to the kitchen and bathroom. Having hosted and been hosted by people all over the world, we place a premium on hospitality and have tried to ensure that this place has everything needed to enjoy your stay in Fort Collins.

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy - we are so glad you enjoyed our lovely cottage. The 2 twin beds upstairs are new and that's probably why they felt a bit firm to you. We will be happy to check this out. Hope to have you stay with us again some time!

Cottage was extremely clean. Everything you would need was there except for food and drinks. We didn't eat much there our Grand Daughter and her spouse kept us very busy. But the grocery store was very close for things we needed. Old town was awesome. Would stay in this cottage again. No regrets except trip could have been longer. Thanks for a great place.

Beautiful small cottage in walking distance to old town

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful small cottage in walking distance to old town. The backyard feels like an oasis to retreat and relax after great hikes in the parks. The house is well equipped and structured to offer everything you need for a family of four - including a BBQ and two bikes. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend this wonderful place which felt like a home for the week we spent here.

  • 5 of 5

This place is really nice. The owners obviously took a lot of care in the architectural design and furnishings. The provided absolutely everything - well stocked kitchen, mountains of towels, curated tourist brochures, even Q-tips and cotton balls! We felt pampered. Good parking and nice private outdoor patio space.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house just the right size. It had everything we needed and was so cute. We were able to walk downtown but it still was quiet at night.

Beautiful, peaceful spot, so close to town

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was the perfect answer for my stay, with my 15 year old son and I, while visiting his older brother away at school! The location is central to everything in Old Town, and hidden away down a very private lane, where no one bothers you. The cottage is set up so that there was appropriate privacy for both of us, and the beds are very comfortable, and cozy. Lynne was incredible in accommodating our last minute request. She was kind and pleasant and so eager to help, I cannot thank her enough. We will most definitely stay here every time we come for a visit!

Walk or ride one of our cruiser bicycles to 'Old Town' for incredible restaurants, quaint shops and exciting night life. We're just two blocks from Colorado State University and close to Fort Collins famous Micro Breweries! Make sure to visit our Lincoln Performing Arts Center (just a few blocks away) for a little added culture or take a drive to our beautiful Horsetooth Reservoir and take in our clean mountain air.
