The SpaceEnjoy the beauty and serenity of vacationing in the Red Feather Lakes area. We're minutes away from many lakes, hiking trails, the National Forest, and miles of off-road trails. Dining, movies, etc. is available in Ft. Collins 45 minutes away.
Your accommodations are a private room with a queen size bed, and a 3/4 private bath in the walkout style basement of our home. The room is newly painted and carpeted, decorated to fit in with the country feel of the rest of the house. The bed is protected by bug resistant cover. We also have a sofa, and air bed available for larger parties. There is an electric baseboard heat, which you control, as well as a wood burning stove to heat the entire lower floor. A private covered patio is right outside your room, equipped with your own grill, and outdoor dining set. We also have an open exercise area with a Bow Flex, glider, and more. The upstairs kitchen is available as a communal space, as is the upper deck overlooking the backside of Rocky Mountain National Park, where you can actually view glaciers on the distant mountains. There is also a small galley kitchen available downstairs.
Continental breakfast is included in your stay. Also, during your stay, we're able to offer any or all of your other meals, including romantic dinners for two, picnic baskets, or family style meals for a reasonable price. Lee loves using the local honey, wines from a local winery, and other produce when in season to showcase the wonderful variety we have available, despite our secluded location. We also have several local establishments for dining that we can recommend. Guest AccessYou'll have access either through the main floor of the house, or a private entrance through the walk-out basement door. Interaction with GuestsWe would love for you to feel comfortable enough to consider us friends but not to feel obligated to visit with us during your stay. This is our home, so all we ask is the respect due, and for you to expect nothing less in return. The NeighborhoodWe tell everyone we bought a beautiful view, and a nice house came with it! What we love is looking out our windows and seeing a family of mule deer, or a fox running across the drive. We are sometimes visited by bear, mountain lions, and a host of other wildlife, whose neighborhood we live in. We are amazed at the amount of stars we can see from here, including the Milky Way as our night time ceiling. We can't say enough about the silence, other than the humming of the many hummingbirds, or the songs of the many mountain species we are still learning about. The wild flowers in the summer are miniature in size, but gigantic in the beauty they provide. We love exploring the nearby Poudre Canyon, as well as the many dirt roads leading to an adventure in almost any direction. Our house sits on 2.5 acres at the end of the road, next to a national forest area. Getting AroundNo public transportation, and the vehicle of your choice would depend on the level of your adventurous nature. May need 4 wheel drive during the winter months. Other Things to NoteWe have pets: two cats and a dog; if you have pets as well, we may be able to accommodate your pets needs, but will have to take it on a case by case basis.
One of the things we would like to stress to our guests is, if you need or want anything while you are in our stay, please don't hesitate to ask. We want to be given the chance to make this one of your most memorable vacations ever.
We can tailor most of your vacation wishes to fit your needs with advance communications, so just let us know what you need and we'll do our best.
