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 assigned off-street parking space off the alley right next to the carriage house. 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 rentals in the same neighborhood.

About Lisa

We moved from the Minneapolis area to Fort Collins in 2003. It took us until 2010 to purchase in Old Town and we are now realizing our dream of fixing up our main house now that the carriage house is complete. Whew!

Lisa purchased this barn in 2012

Why Lisa chose Old Town

Bones, bones, bones and Location, location, location!

What makes this barn unique

Mature trees, great for walking most places you want to go. Great area for biking and running, too.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

Darling place, warm and cozy (but not small) for my winter stay. Nicely finished and loved the open feel with the ceiling. Very well kept outside too and easy parking. Had everything you would need and very clean! Coming back to stay for longer.

Where do you live?

Adorable Studio in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Li'l Buckaroo is modern and comfortable. The kitchen is well-supplied and we appreciated the excellent coffee. The bed was very comfortable and our daughter slept on the sleeper sofa and said it was great. This location can't be beat! An easy walk to restaurants. If you enjoy biking, you can rent bikes for $ 2.00 an hour in many locations and the Poudre River trail is beautiful. This is a gem, and we would definitely rent this again.

Perfect place to rest and relax, has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Found the Li'l Buckaroo have everything we needed. Central Air and Heat was a big plus for us. Full Kitchen and Washer and Dryer. This place is lacking nothing when it comes to amenities. Everything is pretty much new and very very clean. Walk to Old Town is just minutes. Definitely recommend stay here, the hosts were especially nice!

Perfect Perfect! The Apartment and Location have everything you could need or want!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at Li'l Buckaroo for a long weekend visiting our other daughter that attends CSU. The location was perfect! We were close to campus as well as shopping and dining in Old Town. We enjoyed it so much more than a regular hotel! It has a comfy home feel and nice to have a complete kitchen. I definitely recommend this spot!
