About the Property
Upscale 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath historic home. Sleeps 6.
There are three bedrooms, each with their own bath and all on separate levels. The main level of the house features an eat-in kitchen, the master bedroom and bath, an additional half bath, and the formal living room, which features my grandmother’s baby-grand Steinway, dating back to the late 1920s. The upstairs loft features a game room and the second bedroom and bath. The basement features a media room, wine cellar, office area, laundry room, and the third bedroom and bath. Outside you’ll find a quaint courtyard, gazebo and patio space for dining al fresco or simply enjoying the garden.
If there is anything we can do for you to make your stay more pleasant, please let us know. We live next door and are happy to help when we can. Please note the carriage house and garage are not available for rent and may be occupied by our own guests during your stay. However, do not expect any disruptions should this be the case.

The Sanctuary is centrally located in Old Town Fort Collins. You’ll find numerous restaurants, pubs, bars / nightclubs, one-of-a-kind retail shops, art galleries, museums, theaters, music venues, farmers markets and parks — all within walking distance of our doorstep. We are also within walking distance to Colorado State University, yet beyond the reach of the majority of student housing and rentals.
Fort Collins is a vibrant and active city, and there is always something to do and multiple events occurring simultaneously. Our only problem is narrowing down our choices on any given day as the possibilities are endless. Popular with locals and visitors alike is touring Fort Collins’ micro-breweries and distilleries (often by bicycle), attending festivals (many of which are music and/or beer related), enjoying the multitude of outdoor activities the city and surrounding areas have to offer, catching a concert or theatrical performance, spending the day enjoying Old Town Square / Downtown Fort Collins, or attending any number of CSU’s athletic and performing arts events. Football, Basketball and Volleyball games are especially popular.
For the outdoor enthusiast, Fort Collins is a great place to be. The city has over 35 miles of paved trails that stretch throughout the city that are popular with runners, walkers, cyclists and commuters. In the surrounding foothills, opportunities for hiking, cycling and mountain biking, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, rock climbing, fishing, trail running, boating, hunting, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and tubing are abundant. Favorite destinations include Horsetooth Mountain Park and Reservoir — located in the foothills of Fort Collins — and Poudre Canyon, just minutes northeast of the city. Day trips to Estes Park / Rocky Mountain National Park are popular as well.
Like every local, we do have our favorite places to frequent and are happy to share our insights with you. Please feel free to reach out to us should you have any questions.

Why the Owner Chose Old Town, Fort Collins, CO, USA:
We fell in love with this property for its location and its history. We had looked at purchasing this property while it was still a church a few years prior knowing that we would one day be moving back to Fort Collins, but thought the renovation would be too difficult a project to manage from out of state. When we were transitioning back to Colorado and saw that the church had been partially renovated and was again for sale, we had to see it. Once we saw the attention to detail that had been given towards the project thus far, we decided it was meant to be. We completed the renovation and considered turning it into a bed and breakfast, but decided that a guest house would be a better option for us in our current place in life. All furnishings, with the exception of some family heirlooms are new and carefully selected with your comfort in mind. It is our hope that this becomes a place you will want to return to again.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We offer both short-term and discounted long-term rentals. We are happy to help with prearrangements such as stocking the house with groceries, trip planning advice, restaurant reservations or other special requests such as providing optional cleaning services for long-term rentals or breakfasts for special occasions. We stock the house with basic toiletries and water bottles in the fridge.
