About Cheryl Schaaf

My husband and I wound up in Fort Collins in 1997 and 1998 to attend Colorado State University. We met, married and never left! We have enjoyed many trips to various parts of the U.S. and other countries using VRBO as our main source for vacation rentals. Our hope is that everyone who stays at the Smith house has the same positive experiences we have had.

Cheryl Schaaf purchased this house in 2013

Why Cheryl Schaaf chose Historic Fort Collins High School

We have always wanted to own a property in Old Town. There is a certain 'vibe' to the area that you can't fine anywhere else in town. It is a quiet, but vibrant area, so close to restaurants, bars, breweries, shops, trails and parks. My family and I live in Fort Collins and simply want to provide a place for visitors to enjoy all the city has to offer!

What makes this house unique

We loved the charm of this house right away. It has beautiful arches, wood floors, swing on the front porch, remodeled kitchen (2013), fenced backyard and large mature trees.

Great Stay in Fort Collins

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Fort Collins! The home was very clean and in wonderful condition. We had a question and Cheryl was very quick to text us back. The home is within walking distance of CSU and Old Town, great shopping and dining! Also close to Horsetooth Reservoir for great hiking.

especially enjoyed location and the back yard

  • 4 of 5

spent a week here, early July. Owners great to work with, responsive and quick to refund damage deposit . Our first visit to Ft Collins, and this location was convenient for accessing Old Town. I love to walk, and could walk to Old town, but it was about a 45 minute walk, while a 5 minute drive. There were a few restaurants, not in old town but on the edges of neighborhood, that were shorter walks. Cafe Vino is a good recommendation for "neighborhood" eatery. The house was comfortable, especially appreciated the A/C, and the back yard was a godsend. Neighborhood quiet, and nice to walk in. We cooked several large meals, and found kitchen had all we needed.Another plus was having 2 bathrooms. I also liked that the TV area was in the finished basement, making it a separate area so I could read without distraction of TV. Would definitely stay here again, and hope we have the opportunity.

Great little house! Perfect for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Old Town Bungalow. Everything was clean and modern. The kitchen was very well-stocked for our needs. The house is close to a grocery store, drug store and gas station, as well as just a quick drive to all the fun restaurants and shops in Old Town. Owner was easy to work with, and check-in was a breeze. Highly recommend this house!
