About Wes Tucker

Wes calls Colorado home and his wife Gerti grew up in Germany, where the two met, although their work with the evangelical church has taken them to Mexico, Germany, as well as 16 years in Lyons, France. They speak these languages! They have two grown adopted sons, one from Mexico and the other from Jamaica. A true united nations family! Wes still works with the church, but his hobby is bluegrass music and his band, Rusty 44, can be heard playing locally in microbreweries, music venues, private parties and churches. Gerti works at the local Mouco Cheese Co. You should really try some of their delicious camembert creations while visiting Ft. Collins, and if you let her know ahead of time, you may just find a sample of this cheese waiting for you in the fridge!

Wes Tucker purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Wes Tucker chose Waterglen

What we love about Ft. Collins is its variety of experiences while still being a relatively small and homey town. The university brings a certain buzz of activity to the area, but the townhome's location on the edge of the city guarantees a peaceful night's sleep and views of the Front Range. It's less than 10 minutes to the heart of the Old Town restaurants, microbreweries, theatres and shopping. The university is just another two minutes further away. Another attractive feature of this area is the Poudre River Canyon nearby the city, which boasts many great hiking trails, rafting possibilities and camping in the Rocky Mountains. Horsetooth Reservoir sits nestled in the foothills above the town and is a great place to boat, fish, cycle and swim. Popular Estes Park is only an hour's drive up Hi-34 out of Loveland. There is also great outlet mall shopping just 15 minutes south of the home on I-25. It's one hour door to door to Denver International Airport. Lastly, we are close to the new oilfield exploration in neighboring Weld County, making access to job sites there effortless.

What makes this townhome unique

If you are without a car, a bus stop 100 yards from the townhome takes you into Ft. Collins Old Town.

Such a pleasant experience

  • 5 of 5

Wes made our stay feel completely welcoming. It was so easy to get into the house despite the fact we arrived so late. We were able to follow the well written instructions and enter into the house with ease. Which was nice due to arriving so late. It was clean and inviting. We had everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. It was only two of us and that was plenty of room. I would say a family of four would easily be able to be comfortable staying there. It is outside of Fort Collins which was nice because it got us out of the traffic but yet close enough that we were minutes away from everything we wanted to do; which was hiking and visiting downtown Fort Collins.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our vacation rental. The only issue was the TV was a bit small and the screen was a bit dim. I ended up watching my laptop to tune into directv. I would definitely use this rental again.

Great setting and close to I-25

  • 5 of 5

Hosts Wes/Gerty were welcoming, and although we didn't meet face to face, the communication was excellent to accommodate our arrival.

The townie was spacious and neat. Kitchen stocked with all the amenities, the view behind the townie was scenic, and the heat and Wifi worked fine.

We would stay again in a heartbeat. -Daran

Perfect place for our family

  • 5 of 5

We were in Fort Collins to visit my brother. Wes's town home was just as advertised. Clean, convenient and very welcoming. It was so nice to have a place to go back to in the evenings that felt like home. We would love to stay again for our next visit! Thanks Wes! The Hutson & Udouj Family
