About Marian Wellman
I am a semi-retired 69 year old woman, who loves to travel, collect art, attend musical and theatre events, and would love to have you share my home. I can accomodate up to 6 people with myself sleeping downstairs. I'm happy to show you all the wonderful activities available to you around Fort Collins.
Marian Wellman purchased this House in 2015
Why Marian Wellman chose Troutman Park
If you are looking to enter the very, very popular Northern Colorado housing market, have someone at Colorado State University, or are waiting for your own house to be finished, this is the perfect situation for you. Bring your suitcase only, and leave everything else in storage! The current rental market in Fort Collins is roughly 1% vacancy, and purchasing a home here is very competitive. Take the time you need to explore our area, visit CSU for a prospective student, or just enjoy Colorado. My home is also available for a weekend visit, a short work assignment, flow-over for family attending a wedding, or whatever brings you to our area.
What makes this House unique
All home-y amenities are included for you, and no need to stay in a hotel. Two 50" flat screen TVs in Family Room and bedroom upstairs, with Xfinity Internet and cable services. Baldwin grand piano, if you play. Fully stocked kitchen with Keurig coffee maker, top line juicer, as well as normal appliances, utensils, etc. Dining area with seating for 6, separate living and family rooms, and unique art collection throughout. Summer shade in a beautiful garden with fountain on the back deck, with outdoor dining.

A Warm and Lovely Home
Marian's house is a gem, and she's a peach. I rented the house to prepare for and try a case in Ft. Collins. It was perfect for our trial team. Marian was warm and welcoming and tolerated our odd hours and coming and goings. She has lived out of the country and traveled extensively, collecting marvelous pieces of art. Being able to have a place where we could work without constraints was perfect and played a big role in our success in winning a significant damages award for our clients.
Pretty house -convenient location
We were uncomfortable when we entered-the house was not prepared or to the cleanliness we have come to expect from the many VRBO's we've stayed at.
The house was very definitely prepared - everything cleaned, fresh sheets, towels, kitchen cleaned, etc. I do show in my listing that this is my primary residence, not a dedicated rental property. I was gone myself for the weekend, so I did have food in the fridge from my own use, but there were two shelves cleared for my guests usage. They complained that there was a car in the garage and trash in the container in the garage, which had no effect on their stay.
I touched base with the owner a couple of days prior to driving out to Colorado. She informed me that she resides there and had been out of town but decided to come back early. She said she'd now need the master bedroom because her back is sore. She said I could have the twin bed downstairs. She also said she has a cat and is bringing it back during my stay. I chose this place because it was pet friendly. I was also planning to make an Easter meal here for my college daughter and her roommates. I was very disheartened. I would not recommend this owner to others.
This review is totally untrue. This guest reserved Friday to Sunday, two days, but thought that entitled her to stay till Monday. She also reserved for one guest but expected her daughter and friends could stay over. Had she checked out per her reservation we would not have crossed. She wanted a refund two days before her reservation, for which I had paid for housecleaning and had turned down another guest. She never came and we never met.
The Walden Way house is a well maintained property with a "work in progress" yard at the time of
our stay. The inside of the house is very nicely decorated in a completely eclectic style. We particularly
enjoyed the pergola patio area. The kitchen is nice with easy accessibility. While not truly a problem,
we found the owners on site presence "awkward".
Convenient for our needs and pleasant.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. It was clean and comfortable (though the beds are harder than we're used to!). Our previous experience with VRBO has been that the house has been ours. This stay was more what I would expect from AirBnB, because the owner was present while we were there. We enjoyed her company (and her cat!), but for someone who is looking for a more private experience, this home may not suit your needs. We needed to be close to the University and we needed to sleep 5, and the property was perfect for our needs.
Comfortable, guiet, central location
Marian and Molly (the cat) were most pleasant hostesses in welcoming us to their home and Fort Collins. We have come to realize how much we have been missing by staying at motels/hotels in the past. Marian was a great source of information on the area and obviously enjoys living in the area. We would hope to stay with her (them - Molly was a lap cat for both of us) when we visit Fort Collins in the future.
Jim and Vicki were wonderful guests, and I would love to have them any time. They were great conversationalists, easy to get along with, and helpful in their share of cat petting. We enjoyed each others' company greatly during the entire week.

No additional persons, adult or child, allowed to stay on the property camping in back yard, sleeping on floor or sofa, or in vehicle parked on property,or through any other means, because this will violate my homeowners insurance and City of Fort Collins rules.
