Nancy and Gary James live in Fort Collins, CO and enjoy the outdoors, love riding horses, hiking and time with family and friends. Nancy is retired nurse and spends free time creating knit and sewing designs. Gary is still working in the software industry and loves to play guitar.
After searching much of Red Feather and Crystal Lakes we found TuPa retreat and fell in love with the location. Only 1 hour out of Fort Collins we felt that the property would be a great investment and retreat for us. After owning the property for 2 years we decided to start renting and then a year after that we put the listing in VBRO on October 17, 2011.
We love to unwind at the retreat and enjoy the outdoors. We sometimes hike the area with our dogs or rid our horses, or just enjoy the down time in the mountains.
