Gayle Esarey purchased this Apartment in 1985
Why Gayle Esarey chose West Swallow
We started here and made this home a comfortable, updated, clean dwelling. It has a beautiful yard with mature landscaping, tables and chairs outside, nearby walking/biking trails, Spring Creek and Roland Moore Park. If you want to explore our city, we have museums, miniature golf, golf, a dinner theater, movies, mountains, streams, Horse Tooth Reservoir, and shopping. We also have wonderful restaurants and breweries to visit. Downtown is very popular for walking and browsing many shops and restaurants. Entertainment at the downtown plaza is fun during summer. In August is the August Fest. Taste of Ft. Collins is in June. Many locals bike everywhere on the bike lanes or the bike trails. Fitness is serious business for many here. This property is 2 miles from downtown and several blocks from the trail to Roland Moore Park trail or Spring Creek bike trail.
What makes this Apartment unique
During summer months, you will find it spacious, comfortable, and cool. In winter, it is warm, spacious comfortable, and relaxing. The quarters are also very clean and attractively decorated. During the week, if you want chocolate chip cookies, just let me know. I have met many interesting people through this business! We are located on a family-oriented, dead-end street. The children often play on their skate boards, hockey, basketball, and riding their bikes. Watch for them as you approach the house. Close within driving distance is our shopping mall and Centerra shopping center in Loveland. Estes Park is up Highway 34 about 45 minutes. CU Boulder is also within driving distance up Highway 287 West on Highway 66, South on Hover Street in Longmont. You can easily catch Highway 119 and go West to Boulder. Pearl Street is a well known area as well as CU campus. Maps for these areas are posted in the apartment for viewing. Throughout your travels, you will likely see deer, elk, mountain sheep, marmots, squirrels, and maybe bear and beaver, or wild turkeys. The elk have made their home in Estes Park and wonder throughout town without fear. Park on the street out front. Welcome to my house! Enjoy your stay!

Great place to stay. We were there for a softball tournament.
We had a great vacation in Fort Collins. The apartment was very spacious and it was a great place for us to rest between are softball games. Gayle was very friendly and helpful during our trip.
While in Ft. Collins for my husband’s surgery, I wanted to stay someplace fairly close to the surgery center but far enough away it would be quiet. This was the perfect place! Gayle’s basement is very clean and homey! I had all the comforts of home including a huge library, a comfortable queen size bed, a small kitchenette with microwave, fridge and coffee pot or keurig, a very large living room space, and homemade chocolate chip cookies!!! Her genuine efforts to make us at home were very much appreciated! I could come and go as I pleased to see my husband and accommodate his schedule at the clinic. We will certainly look forward to staying with her again!
Tammy, Thank you for the great review! Hope Monte is doing well! You're in my thoughts and prayers! Until next visit-- Gayle. You're a wonderful couple to host!
I stayed here for nine weeks while I dealt with difficult family issues. Gayle was very hospitable, kind and understanding to my daughter and me. On top of that, she surprised me several times with goodies she made and a breakfast for my daughter and me.
The space is very clean and wonderfully quiet. It was a great place to retreat to after a hard day. I highly recommend staying here.
Wes, thank you for those words. Hope you will be refreshed during your vacation. Life is taking a step at a time. Best wishes, Gayle
Very nice and we’ll be back
Great place, large space. Quiet. Close to CSU and Gayle our host is wonderful.
The apartment was clean, comfortable and very well equipped! Gayle was awesome and greeted us in a way that made us feel right at home. We really enjoyed the Rice Krispie bars Gayle had ready for our arrival. We would highly recommend this place.
Thank you for being so friendly and neat! Hope to see you again! Did you leave instructions for washcloth? Everything went great with procedure. Have a safe trip home.
Quiet and Clean
The apartment is located in a very quiet neighborhood located just right to get to nearby shops and restaurants. Only a few blocks away from downtown. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and Gayle is eager to make your stay as pleasant as can be (including self made cookies).
Spring Creek biking trails are 3 blocks North and West. Roland Moore Park is North across Drake Road. At Roland Moore you have the softball games, play basketball, volleyball, children's equipment, or walk along the path. Many people bike these trails throughout Ft Collins.
CSU campus is just 2 miles North up Shields Street. From there continue North and East on Mountain Avenue to walk around historic downtown Fort Collins among the many shops and restaurants.
At the fountain in old town, during summer months listen to various local musicians and visiting groups while enjoying great food from nearby restaurants.
