RUN OR XC SKI 5K OR CANOE LAKE MACINTOSH, TENNIS, ROCKY MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Longmont House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Other (See Description), Sleeps 5

This property is especially friendly to families and couples that enjoy a 5K cross country ski or run through open space, two groomed parks, tennis and volleyball courts and a mountain view. All right across the street. A furnished deck, fenced back yard, canoe, picnic wagon and children's outdoor toys make for summer fun. Take a 15-mile bike ride on the Greenway or drive 44 minutes to Rocky Mountain National Park and its 355 miles of hiking trails.

WIFI, cable tv, dvds, table and electronic games, a wood burning fireplace and a fully furnished kitchen with extras make being inside nearly as much fun as being outside. Cooks will enjoy finding tools, appliances and even basic spices available for meal preparation, inside or outside on the charcoal grill. See VRBO.com #252109 for more details.

Just inside, the kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, eating and serving supplies you could need, including a coffee maker, microwave, Kitchen Aid blender and a Kitchen Aid mixer. Basic cooking supplies are available if you need a cup of flour, some salt or a pinch of spices.

From a viewing deck, accessible by sliding and french doors off the master and 2nd bedroom, enjoy a long view of Lake Macintosh, Long's Peak--great light and shadows in early mornings and dusk year round! Play tennis or practice your basketball shots (dribble the short walk to the half court). Put the kids in the big yellow utility wagon with a picnic, soccer ball, roller racers, fishing poles or kites to either of the two parks you pass on your run around the lake where they can play in well-maintained playgrounds and grassy areas--plenty of room for Frisbee tossing or kite flying.

Fishing (catch and release), volleyball courts in each of the two parks, tennis courts across the street and a half-court for basketball pick-up in one of the parks. Owner provides tennis rackets, volleyball, basketball, soccer ball and roller racers for the kids. Oh, yes, and a canoe with nifty trailer, paddles and life jackets for two adults, a teen and a toddler can be pulled across the street for a fun hour or two on the water where you may be the only craft on the lake.

Enjoy evening visits or family game time in the family room. Television with cable, video and board games are available, including a tabletop mini pool table. A computer for checking your email and WIFI is available throughout. Or, if it is chilly outside, a wood fire in the fireplace will warm you up and the firewood is provided. Owner is on property to care for yards, snow and to promptly address your needs and concerns.

Longmont is a surprising community, with an excellent library, interesting downtown with lots of art and antique shops, a beautiful commemorative rose garden with dozens of varieties, bicycle, rollerblading or walking paths, including the St. Vrain and the Left Hand Greenways among others, recreation and athletic facilities including the YMCA and Longmont Recreation Center (both have indoor pools and water slides), lots of restaurants and fast food outlets.

Boulder's ''no growth'' city ordinances have pushed many retail markets to Longmont. In that 1/8 mile from the home, you will find Safeway, Blockbuster, Green Cleaners, Subway, Daylight Donuts, Restaurants and Pizza and in Longmont you will find major restaurants and shopping within short drives or bicycle rides.

Within 2 hours of many ski areas, including some of Colorado's smaller gems, such as El Dora. Estes Park and the infamous Stanley Hotel is just 45 minutes west at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Forest.

LONGMONT COLORADO HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much Carolyna for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful home with us.

We had a wonderful time.

This home is located right across the street from a wonderful park. We went canoeing and to the playground. There were lots of walking/bike trails and bikes were available with the rental.

The home had a wonderful, private, fenced backyard and it made for a wonderful spot for family to come visit us while on our vacation! A great spot for kids.

Thanks again and we will be back!

PS: our toddler STILL talks about the kochina dolls and Carolyna. He also mentioned hiking the other days. We have great memories from our trip! :)

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay and Carolyna is a generous and most gracious host. The home is immaculate and very comfortable and the outside decking and furniture was a nice surprise. Carolyna has thought of everything when putting together the items needed when away from. We would definitely stay here again if we are back in this area. We were able to make good use of the bikes at the beautiful park across the street. Top notch rental :)

VISITING GREAT GRAND SON

  • 5 of 5
Most excellent lodgings. It was our thrid visit in two years. Very comfortable, spacious and commodious home with all the amenities. Extras are the back yard with deck and place to grill outside and dine outside. Downstairs den is cool and spacious for hours of relaxation and visiting. Not airconditioned but an attic fan cools the house nicely at night and closing the house tight during hot days keeps everything comfortable with ceiling and floor fans.

The park and lake across the street make outside relaxation easy and convenient and frame an expansive view of the front range, Rocky Mountain National Park and the Twin Peaks.

Our home away from home in the Denver area.

Owner's Response: Our favorite guests return and the Newtons come often to Longmont. Meeting their grand and great grandson and great grandson's mother is a joy and pleasure. We consider them friends.

Because the weather was cool during their visit, Frank didn't notice the installation of a new evaporative cooler that will make the home even more comfortable this summer!

We thank our returning guests with a discounted rate for their stay.

GREAT GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
Stayed at Harvard House for about six weeks. The area was great! MacIntosh Lake was the highlight of each day. The Longmont area had many good places to eat. The bedrooms were just fine. The lower level was my tv place. Comfortable to watch tv. Carolyna went the extra mile to ensure the cable tv had exactly the stations I had requested. We were able to park in the driveway, off street. Convenient and safe. Sat down to share a treat with Carolyna. Enjoyable time as Carolyna is a very interesting woman.
