Myself and my family live on-site this beautiful property and manage it. While it is our home, it is a very special place and location and we love sharing it with travelers and their families. I have been in the hospitality industry since I began working. I take pride in my customer service and in my attention to detail. It's the small, simple touches that guests appreciate and remember for years to come. I look forward to meeting you.
This property is the perfect get-away. It is an ideal location due to the sense of solitude, being away from the hustle and bustle, yet only a 15 minute drive to Old Town where you can find endless entertainment, shops, eateries, music and so much more. If you are an outdoorsy person, this is an ideal location for you. Not only is the view of the valley and the red rocks captivating, there is an abundance of wild life, biking trails, state parks, lakes and rivers all within a few miles. So much fun for the whole family, or just a peaceful get-away for one.
While we do have WiFi you wont find a television in every room, in fact you wont find one at all. This is a great place to bring people together and disconnect from their busy and sometimes hectic schedules. We have many games available, a beautiful deck with a hot tub that sparks great conversation. We even have our friendly hens who are like family members. Don't be surprised when they greet you with a warm welcome. They like to share their delicious fresh eggs and so do we! What makes this place unique is there is no place like it. It is not a 5 star resort, it is your home away from home.
This was the perfect retreat for my sisters and I! We are busy mama's and wives and only get one weekend per year with one another. We couldn't have asked for a more warm, welcoming and beautiful spot to relax. The owner has chickens on the property who roam free, which is so fun! There were fresh eggs awaiting us upon our arrival, among many other very personal and thoughtful touches. Would recommend this getaway spot to anyone who wants kick back and relax. We"d surely come back again!
We were so fortunate to spend a weekend here at Amy's cabin. Before we arrived, Amy was so helpful in sending very detailed restaurant and hiking recommendations. She was spot on with everything! When we arrived to the cabin we were greeted by Amy and her family, including a dog and chickens. We knew then that this place was something special. Amy's thoughtful touches including fresh eggs from the chickens and a welcome basket including coffee beans were just another example of how her property stands out above the rest. We enjoyed the hot tub and the wonderful views and starry nights. The nearby hiking and multitude of breweries made this a perfect location. This rental is the ultimate in small town hospitality and love.
Almost afraid to tell anyone how wonderful this quiet, little rustic cabin is! Peaceful, warm, beautiful setting & loads of hospitality. The personal touches Amy takes to make you feel welcome, from amazing homemade bread to flower arrangements, lovely soaps, and well appointed kitchen. Watching chickens roam around freely in morning & stargazing from hot tub at night, truly an escape from city life! Yet close enough to visit our CSU student. Perfect thanksgiving for the whole family, we'll be back!
We had a wonderful experience! We were looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation rental home that was away from the hustle and bustle of town, but was still close enough to Fort Collins that we could easily get to town when needed. The house was clean and well-maintained, and Amy added nice personal touches such as eggs from their chickens and homemade cinnamon bread for breakfast. We would definitely stay here again!
I recently visited with my Mom, Aunt and a few friends for a girls weekend. Amy and her family were so helpful and sweet. The fresh eggs and cinnamon rolls were an added treat upon our arrival. The cabin is just far enough out that you have your privacy and the view is amazing. About a ten minute drive to Ft Collins so there is plenty to do as well. Definitely returning!
Amy, thank you so much for a wonderful weekend! Everthing was perfect! The cinnamon rolls were outstanding, along with the fresh milk, Eggnog and yogart. You go out of your way to welcome your guests. It was very relaxing sitting in the hot tub and looking at the stars. You are so close to everything, but out enough to enjoy the peace and guiet. I will recommend this to anyone that is coming to Fort Collins.
