This is the BEST of a Hotel Suite and Mountain Retreat combined!
Truly impeccable views! This Colorado mountain retreat is about an hour to Boulder/Estes Park/Denver, about 30 minutes to Longmont and Ft. Collins and 15 minutes to groceries and restaurants in Berthoud. (However, we are NOT near skiing.) Nestled in a serene setting at 6800 ft., this 1 bedroom/1 full bathroom, mini kitchen suite with a pull-out queen couch offers guests a partitioned off part of our home. You will feel like you are the only ones around as you are surrounded on 3 sides with windows to nature. (The owners would be on site in separate portion of house, but you have your own private entrance/key) Soak up some famous Colorado sunshine around our private outdoor in-ground pool, (seasonal) and now a new hot tub out under the stars on the pool deck. (available all year). Enjoy your own fridge, microwave, (no oven), outdoor propane grill, hot plate and coffee maker with seating in your private solarium. Enjoy your morning coffee on your cement patio overlooking Carter Lake. A short walk to the sandy beach for lake swimming and one mile to the marina for boat and kayak rental. (carterlakemarina.com 970-667-1062). Hiking trails surround the area. Comfortably sleeps 4. There is also a baby crib in main bedroom. We would love to share our beautiful lake and mountain view home with you.

About Marie Boll
Moved to Colorado from Minnesota in 1998 with our five kids. Married 36 years and have seven grandchildren.
Marie Boll purchased this Lodge in 2009
Why Marie Boll chose Larimer County
We bought this property because of the views! Carter Lake is a beautiful reservoir . One of the few that allows water sports on it. You also have a view of snow capped Longs Peak and Mt. Meeker. This property is at the end of the road and has views on 3 full sides. With an elevation of 6,800 feet, at night you look down on city lights to the south and east. You feel like you are in a mountain retreat but within 15 minutes of nearest town. On this property, you enjoy all the best that Colorado is.
What makes this Lodge unique
This suite has floor to ceiling windows on the west and south side. In your suite there are two sliding glass patio doors giving you access to all I've described, plus an in ground pool, hot tub and patio area. We feel strongly about sharing our piece of paradise with others.

Great place, great views, great weather, great people.
Wonderful time. Awesome views. Quiet place. Close to RMNP. We'll go back if the opportunity comes up.
Comfy space, no kitchen
We loved the space and the views. We loved the furnishings, including the bed and sofas. We did not like the kitchen set up, but for a short stay, everything was provided. There is an adequate refrigerator, coffee pot, hot plate and toaster, all good. There were sufficient paper plates and plastic utensils, but no kitchen sink was kind of weird. The owners were very nice and the time we spent there was very relaxing.
Worthwhile, enjoyable, comfortable, and one-of-a-kind
Not only were the views stunning, but the living areas were extremely accommodating. Everything that we could have needed was supplied, and we were comfortable for our entire stay. The hot tub provided relaxing nights, while the sunlit rooms provided beautiful days.The hosts were very polite and retained a comfortable distance for our stay to feel just like home. I look forward to the opportunity to get stay here again! 10/10
Beautiful views and quaint setup
This was a wonderful place to take a break from the city. It was just the 2 of us and we had felt very at home. It would be challenging to stay too long since there isn't a real kitchen but the hosts have truly thought of everything. There are movies, games, cooking supplies and loads of views and of course the hot tub! Take note that it is about 20 minutes into town, but it's a pleasant drive!
Great place! Very comfortable, clean and amazing views!
This property is maintained very thoughtfully and owners are very welcoming and responsive to needs. The views are incredible- almost panoramic! Very quiet and comfortable. Would definitely return.
We had a lovely stay! It was myself, fiancé and our three year old son! The scenic views were amazing! Inside was very clean and they had everything we needed for our stay! We will be back hopefully next year!!!
nearby airport offers skydiving
