Truly impeccable views! This Colorado mountain retreat is about an hour to Boulder/Estes Park/Denver, about 30 minutes to Longmont and Ft.

(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.

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.

Tony and Maria were wonderful hosts and the property was superb. The views were amazing during the day and night and relaxing by the pool in the afternoon after a hike was wonderful. The bed was super comfortable and the hosts provide every thing you need. I highly recommend this property if you are anywhere in the area.
The property was absolutely beautiful... scenic views, inviting pool/hot tub, beautiful landscaping.
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We enjoyed the place so much that we modified our vacation travels through the Rockies to just stay and relax at the property. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. Refreshing pool, relaxing hot tub, eye-catching garden/landscape, peaceful and comfortable bed and pull-out sofa, wildlife sitings, star gazing, and views of the city lights were just a few of the highlights. We were highly satisfied with our stay. Thank you, Tony and Marie.

Beautiful stay in paradise !!
Words cannot accurately the beauty surrounding this amazing property. We spent two nights, just relaxing. The hosts, Toni and Marie are wonderful people, who obviously respected our privacy, but made us feel very welcome. The bed was very comfy, as was the pull out couch in the front room. The swimming pool was open, but a little cool for our liking, but the hot tub was AWSOME, it was a great place to sit and watch the stars. We saw lots of deer, unfortunately they were eating the beautiful flowers that surrounded the property, and lots of beautiful bright colored birds. Everything you need is furnished, except food of course, they provide a full size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and a nice hot plate, along with a very nice propane grill to cook on. The bathroom was very comfortable, with a bathtub shower combination, all towels provided. I would highly recommend this property to everyone, and hope that I can return next summer for another beautiful stay.
Beautiful views. Lovely quiet place.
My family had such a wonderful stay here. The hosts were so kind and the views were stunning. We loved coming home from a long day of exploring to this quiet and relaxing piece of paradise. The living space was clean, the bed was comfortable, the kitchen area was adequate for our needs, and we adored spending the evenings in the hot tub. We had our one year old with us and she slept perfectly in the crib provided in the space as well. It is an hour drive to Estes Park and 20-30 minutes to much of anything, but we thoroughly enjoyed staying here. We would certainly stay here again if the opportunity presents itself!
WHAT A WONDERFUL STAY!!!
This place was AMAZING. Marie and Tony were super sweet, we had all we needed, and the views were simply incredible. We stayed here on our Estes Park portion of the trip-it was an easy drive to get to the Rocky Mountain National Park, but we would have spent more time just exploring the area around this home if we could have!! THANKS!! We hope to come back next summer!!!
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.
