About Margaret Wood

My background is in interior design, cosmetology, and art. Ron's background is mechanical engineering and building contractor. We are both artist with our body of work being our home and property. Ron has a passion and penchant for making sculptures. It has taken over 20 years to fulfill the dream of bringing our diverse interests home and creating a sculpture park and garden on 4 fenced and gated acres. We live on the property and we are constantly making improvements. From cleaning to gardening and everything in between, we do it all and we enjoy every moment! The absolute best part is being able to share the joy of the estate with our guest who become dear friends. The bottom line is we are blessed to be living our dream and we are delighted to share this sacred place with you.

Why Margaret Wood chose Mead

Fishing just steps away! Large Patio and a spacious great room for family gatherings.

The quite country setting and having a lake out the back door makes my place very special.

What makes this house unique

We host Small events of 50 guests or less. Contact Margaret..

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect for the holidays. It had everything we needed and then some! The open concept kitchen and living room area was just wonderful for when the grandkids came over or when just the two of us wanted to relax! Definitely have it on our list for when we return!!

Perfect home to relax outside of Denver

  • 5 of 5

Great choice for my wife and I to enjoy being in the country but still not too far from Denver, Loveland, and Fort Collins excursions. Our dog Ginger loved the freedom of roaming outside in the fenced acreage. The fire pit and fire place were great to use on our fall break. Ron and Margaret are great host. We definitely recommend this property.

Wonderful, beautiful, peaceful, friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using a VRBO and we could not have been happier or more pleased with the property and its owner. My husband, daughter, her husband and two children ages 2 1/2 and 1 had plenty of room in the home (I call it home vs. house because of the love and care the owners put into it). The property was great for walks that were not overly long, perfect for the children. The yard directly in front of the home and the deck was perfect for everyone to enjoy and play. There were toys for the children and games for everyone to play, although we did not use them because the children kept us busy. The Woods are very, very nice and so accommodating. We would recommend this property to anyone!

Relaxing, Roomy and Rural

  • 5 of 5

Margaret and Ron made us feel welcome right away. Their approach to vacation rentals is to provide a clean and safe environment without constant surveillance. Their main house is nearby as is their workplaces and shops. We felt safe and yet had a lot of privacy. The kitchen is very large and well stocked. The front windows open up into a view of the woods surrounding the little lake. I walked our dog every morning on our 6 day stay and we saw many kinds of waterfowl and woodland creatures. Longmont is minutes away as is Boulder. Lots of great dining and shopping to be had. Thanks for the conversations, Margaret! I liked getting to know you. And thanks for being dog-friendly! I especially enjoyed greeted every morning by Mollygirl!
