Janet Scott purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Janet Scott chose Old Town
This property was screaming for someone to love it. We immediately felt connected to it, by the location and potential charm. The previous owner had done nothing to enhance the property or fix it up in any way. We felt it call our name and we love it!
What makes this Apartment unique
It is such a wonderful location, in historic downtown Fort Collins, it felt like you could feel the vibes of the past when looking out the windows over library park, as many people had done before you. The downtown area has such rich history, with the ghost signs and old architecture. We just wanted to be part of it.

The property was so close to downtown old town. It was perfect for our stay.
Reviews as well as pictures are very deceiving. The picture looks like this OLD home was updated with new floors, ceiling fans etc. But in fact the floors are original from the 1930-1940. Bathroom was not functional for an average size person. Hall to bathroom was 21 inches wide, space from toilet seat to wall 15 inches, shower head was 68 inches high.Tile and grout in shower was not clean, grout was black, probably mold. Owner failed to communicate about installation of central air conditioning, I found out when the workers showed up at 7:30 am, the first full day. No communication from the owner at all. On the second day workers returned. No communication from the owner. When I complained to the owner, she responded she had been at the house and determined it was not an issue. Really, she came into where I was staying never called or text about her being there. Again NO Communication. Her non-communication is not appropriate. The owner left detailed rules about staying there, yet she can come and go as she decided. She should spend less time worried about people using cannibus and clean the home. I spent almost an entire day to locate a room at a local hotel to move out. I did not want to complain until I had a room. I then asked for a refunded because of not being informed of the worker being in and round where i was staying. Not including i had not slept. I have stay at many older homes at bed and breakfast and never had the issue I had here. This home was probably built 1930-1940, I have owned house the same age, I know there can be issues. But why rent out the property when you know major work was being done. I made these reservations in January!
I received an e-mail when my second payment was late, yet she failed to notify me of the work being done. Giving me the opportunity to cancel. She made a comment in a text to me that "all people do is complain" She did refund my money. I took pictures and will share with anyone considering staying here. I extremely disappointed. Probably will not use VRBO again. Mary Blahut
I am sorry Mary did not enjoy her stay, this is one of my most popular rentals in a great location, most reviews are rave revies. It is a vintage apartment which means it is not all new and state of the art. Sometimes this doesn't seem like a good fit for people who want something that is brand new, and was probably not a good choice for her. Why not take a walk through the beautiful library park across the street or step around the corner to one of the many great coffee shops, nstead of measuring how far the toilet is from the wall. The photos are the photos, nothing has been altered or anything deceptive done. The floors have been refinished but are not new. We don't typically replace things that don't need to be replaced. It is also an apartment rental, I had never planned to be her BFF and hang out with her. We were adding a/c to the units behind her, I was over there and it really had no effect on her apartment, but it appears some people just like to complain and are never happy. I really hope she stays in some modern place next time, a vintage setting isn't for everyone unfortunately. The apartment couldn't be in a more fantastic location to those who truly want to experience all the Old Town has to offer.
Quaint and well located
Lovely little cottage environment. Well equipped updated kitchen. Great location on a quaint street in Old Town. Owners were very responsive.
Very Clean and updated, well stocked, great location!!
Janet did a wonderful job of staying in touch and providing necessary information for the property leading up to our stay. Super easy to access with off street parking. Perfect for 2 people as there is only one bedroom. Kitchen spacious with all new cabinets and appliances. Shower is small for tall people but very doable. The bed is low to the ground but mattress is very comfortable. We would not hesitate to stay there again!!
Comfortable and Quaint Cottage home with fantastic walkability!
We were so comfortable staying in this cute historic home! We loved the location and proximity to town as it was easy for us to walk to eat out breakfast, lunch and dinner! We enjoyed getting to know our way around Old Town. The park across the street near the library was perfect for us and our 7 month old- he especially enjoyed the swings! We didn’t make food at home but if you want to do so, this home has a fully equipped kitchen with everything you’d need to make a meal!
The bed is super comfy and we enjoyed resting here!! Again, wonderful location!! Love love love and we’d definitly stay here again!!
Great space and easy communication
Utilized the home for a long term work assignment. The place was perfect for my needs.
Fantastic location in Downtown/Old Town, super great walk-score, across from library park, 2 blocks from Old Town Square with restaurants, entertainment, concerts, breweries and all the fun and shopping you can imagine.
