About the Property

2014 Studio 4 blocks to Downtown Old Town Shops & Restaurants/6 blocks to CSU

STR License #00132103 Phenomenal base to walk to CSU and downtown Old Town. Experience history with modern conveniences in this new (2014) studio apartment above our turn-of-the-century brick carriage house.

Situated at the rear of our large lot - on a typical alley in an Old Town residential neighborhood adjacent to Downtown - Li’l Buckaroo has 520 square feet of vaulted living space plus your own fenced courtyard where you can enjoy sitting at the bistro table or grilling on the gas grill.

Li’l Buckaroo is just a 6 block walk to the CSU Oval and 4 blocks to Old Town Square – the heart of Downtown Old Town. We are walking and or biking distance to a food co-op, all shops, restaurants, events, and breweries in and near Downtown Old Town Fort Collins. There is a Zagster bike rental station less than 2 blocks away at the public library.

With a queen bed, full/double hide a bed, twin air mattress and pack ‘n’ play, Li’l Buckaroo can accommodate up to 4 people (3 adults max). The neighborhood is great for taking a walk and there is a playground a 5 minute walk away at Library Park - children are welcome at Li'l Buckaroo. Please consider the 20 steps, shower only feature, and access to breakable dishes in deciding whether Li'l Buckaroo is a good fit for your little one(s).

There is one dedicated off-street parking space although a car is optional as this location has a very high walkability factor. If you take a shuttle from the airport consider renting a car locally for a day or two if you want to visit surrounding areas. We have a bus system called Transfort and the MAX transit is a 3 block walk from Li'l Buckaroo.

We live in the main house on the same lot as Li'l Buckaroo but rarely run into renters as we are all busy and on the go. Ask me about our other rental in the same neighborhood.
