house, 2 or 3 bedrooms + other (see description), up to 2 bathrooms, (sleeps 10)

Welcome to this rural oasis in the heart of Northern Colorado. You will enjoy a stress free stay here in a countryside neighborhood of Berthoud, the garden spot of Colorado. This retreat is pastoral living at its best in a soothing and natural setting. You can’t help but immediately unwind in the privacy and beauty of this comfortable four, bedroom ranch style home located right in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. This home has a southwestern feel to it with a tobacco brown Adobe finish. The Interior is comprised of many natural elements such as sustainable rose wood floors, numerous decorative beams, arches and interesting colorful features.

This country, Mountain View Retreat has many amenities to entertain your senses. Whether you look forward to creating a romantic get-away for two, or are planning this years family reunion, ... it’s all possible.

This unique natural country setting attracts many varieties of birds, toads, coyote, fox, hawks and other wild life. The view from the back porch is far reaching and you can enjoy seeing dozens of mountain tops in the distance. The colorful easterly sunrises and westerly sunsets under the big Colorado country sky offer photographers a great location. The retreat’s outdoors has no lack of resting areas for relaxation, with thoughtful placement of small benches, chairs, and tables that can be enjoyed from early breakfasts to late night fireside chats.

The Living room, kitchen and dining room area is designed to be a very open spacious living experience, without walls, so all family members have together time whether they are preparing a meal, reading a book, or watching the game. The large dining room table can easily accommodate 8-10 but also ‘folds down’ to be the right intimate size for a romantic setting; maybe a champaign brunch for two? The expansive master bedroom has a garden room feel to it as it is surrounded in season by mature flowering lilac bushes, pine, and other trees. For your convenience, the adjacent walk-in closet has a front loading quality European washing machine and dryer. The two bathrooms are furnished with each their own jacuzzi.

RELAX AND CELEBRATE ALL IN ONE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place for family and holidays near Eldora and Ft Collins. This was perfect. Beautiful inside and out and ready for Christmas dinner. We were all comfortable and it was convenient for all the events we had planned. We recommend this to families with college kids or grandparents in the group.

REVIEW....TIME OF STAY FROM AUGUST 18TH UNTIL THE 31ST 2012

  • 5 of 5
Each time I stayed at the Country Retreat I enjoyed it for the quiet and peacefulness. I like especially how easy it is to communicate with the owners, I could ask Rita and Russell at any time for tips and hints on where to go next, to explore a new part of this area. Both of them have a very inviting personality and by now I feel like a "part of the family" when I am there.

Staying at the Country Retreat is staying in the middle of many great destinations. That made it very convenient, we could visit every day a new place. One day a trip to Estes Park and for some horseback riding in the Rocky Mountain National Park, then the next day to the ‘Boulder mall’ for a great performance of diverse Street performers, yet another day we made a discovery of Fort Collins special restaurants. We visited Lyons annual Folk music festival over a two day period. We enjoyed Loveland’s great sculpture park and stopped at the book and coffee shop on 4th street for a delicious beverage and a well deserved brake.

Then, many evenings we enjoyed sitting together outside by the fireplace, talking about our adventures we took that day while getting our hotdogs and marshmallows roasted in the fire.

The kids enjoyed watching the birds, toads and little bunnies coming out from under the porch. I liked the cleanliness & how very roomy it is at the Country retreat. The beds are very comfy, the kitchen was fully stocked, there were laundry detergent and fabric softener for the washer & dryer and many more conveniences. And when we had a special wish we just had to ask for it.

Thank you for your hospitality.

THE PERFECT HOME

  • 5 of 5
I am from Hamburg, Germany area and stayed for 30 days in Colorado to experience the Rocky Mountains but wanted to be also close to some of the 'normal' environment of Coloradans. It was also important for me to have a good WiFi connection. I loved 'A Country Retreat' for providing all of this. At the same time I was looking for some peace and tranquility but also wanted to be close to stores and night life activity. This place satisfied all my expectations and then some.

I especially enjoyed the natural setting of the home out in the country complete with western wild life. I saw a fox, listened to coyotes at night very close by, saw various sized toads, horses and many colorful birds. Several nights the owners would built a warming campfire where we would sit around and share stories under beautiful star filled skies.

I also enjoyed going to the close by and amazing fun town of Boulder where many street performers entertained us with very exciting performances. One day we drove into the Rocky Mountains National Park to enjoy nature at its best. At the end of the day it was always great to come home to our American country retreat home which quite ideally supported our needs.

We enjoyed the open architecture of the house along with all of its many amenities. The three porches were great for taking in the various views. The screened in porch in the front of the house with its northern view was a wonderful place to hang out, especially at night. The open kitchen floor plan allowed us to make food and watch TV at the same time. The big master bedroom upstairs with a sitting area was great. The two downstairs bedrooms along with the oversized office desk and exercise equipment were appreciated.

I can highly recommend this place for rest, relaxation, natural wonders and nearby shopping in a cozy atmosphere.

AMAZING HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our stay at A Country Retreat. The home and its central location
made everything perfect. It was relaxing to come home to to a beautifully decorated and immaculate home rather than a cold hotel environment. The amenities were exactly as stated.

The owner's seem to have a knack for thinking about everything that supports creature comforts from hair dryers, games, good lights for reading, and even a high-chair for our visiting grandchild.

We thoroughly enjoyed sharing family time here. We were able to to easily gather around the large table in the dining area. Watch movies from the comfortable European leather couches. And even sat out on the screened in front porch and enjoyed the beautiful spring afternoon in this quiet and peaceful rural setting.

We're already looking forward to our next stay.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME WITH ROOM FOR FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this comfortable home with our four young granddaughters for a week over Thanksgiving. The owners were anxious to make us feel at welcome and comfortable.
Our eight year old granddaughter declared the house "lovely". All of the kids said they hoped we would stay there again.
We highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a relaxing and spacious place to stay.

Being centrally located you will enjoy day visits to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP).

Colorful hot air ballon rides on the outskirts of Boulder is great for those who enjoy seeing the area from a bird's eye view perspective.

Loveland, Colorado's Sweetheart City, famous for it's Valentine's Day love stamp program has many other attractions one of which is the yearly Sculpture in the Park show every August. Natural pleasures ranging from biking to fishing and Lake Loveland Swim Beach is very popular during the summer month.

Boulder, a quick and scenic 30 minute drive, is one of Colorado's more popular 'tourist traps'. This college town nestled at the foot of The Rocky Mountains has something to offer for everyone. From nature walks to shopping. When it comes to entertainment Boulder's Pearl Street Mall is a must see. Street performers from around the United States congregate and share their special talents with the numerous passerby traffic. Right off the mall you can visit The Boulderado Hotel for an ambient old west feel inclusive of some local ghosts who are known to haunt the rooms and hallways.

Indian Hot Springs in Idaho Springs with geothermal caves and mud baths, spring fed pool are a scenic one and a half hour drive away.

Enjoy night life in the college and retirement town of eclectic Fort Collins with its vast array of coffee houses, restaurants, parks and museums. At least four local Beer Brewing companies give tours (with samples) or explore fort collins outdoors nearby Horsetooth Reservoir or Lory State Park invite for a day adventure.

The Longmont Symphony Orchestra auditorium in Longmont is only 15 minutes away for a classic cultural night out...followed by a visit to the old west style Dickens Pub Tavern and Opera House for a dinner and local brew. Part of the establishment is reported to be haunted. Longmont touts a wide array of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, day spas, and has a great library.

Closer to home in 10 minutes you can be enjoying a delectable thin crust pizza in Berthoud's famous John Doug's pizzeria or ask for home delivery. As an alternative try Brick Oven Pizza on the other side of the train tracks. Bottomless $1 cups of coffee with free WiFi in a family friendly atmosphere and choice of delicious food or dessert is available n downtown Berthoud at The Jumping Bean Coffee House.

Last but not least…Carter Lake with its beautiful views, camping, fishing, and water sport rentals is only minutes from the house along the old back road (CR 4 which used to be named Wagon Wheel Road).
