Fort Collins Townhome Rental Photos and Description
Unique Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
This unique luxury property is located in Old Town Ft. Collins. It has been described by some of our guests as a private boutique hotel steps from the center of Old Town! Guests have loved the quiet and private environment. The only antique trolley west of the Mississippi River travels from City Park to downtown passing some of the most notable homes in the community on this prestigious historic street. You'll arrive at your own wrought-iron gated brick courtyard from Mountain Avenue into a renovated, light-filled spacious brick foyer. These spaces were once home to the county and served as offices. In the adaptive re-use of the building, the architect and contractor owners have paid homage to the original character by retaining the colorful leaded glass windows and expanse of carved wood panels in the entry. The maple wood floors in the main living spaces reflect the light from the floor to ceiling windows for an open/expansive loft-like feel.
This is truly a unique property, melding contemporary and regional design touches throughout. From the crisp white sheets to the fluffy towels, down comforters to snuggle into on the Colorado evenings, special interiors and lighting details, you will enjoy experiencing these spaces. The owners have hung art by local artists and added an eclectic mix of antiques and mid century modern professionally designed features. This property is in a truly excellent location, you can leave your car parked and enjoy the 2 block walk to the heart of Old Town Ft. Collins shops, restaurants, and museums as well as the easy access to Colorado State University. Our 'official walk score' is 85 out of 100, which means coffee shops are within .10 miles,restaurants .14, Civic Center Park .21 and the Old Town open air seasonal market on Saturdays. Our location is rated as a Bikers Paradise with a score of 100 due to the flat terrain and wonderful access to bike paths and lanes!!

The owners are a husband and wife architect/interior designer/contractor team who have been involved in the adaptive re-use and re-development of many housing projects in the Old Town area for themselves as well as for their clients.
They so enjoyed staying at a VRBO recently, upon their return they decided to feature one of their own in a very special property they renovated. They have been residents of Fort Collins for over 30 years and formerly faculty at Colorado State University.
Susan purchased this townhome in 2002
Why Susan chose Fort Collins
While hosting professors from abroad, it became apparent that there were not abundant choices for them to stay within close proximity to campus and in the spectacular Old Town area. This is truly a vacation setting/location!
We have had guests return multiple times and we love to provide that special environment that they enjoy.
What makes this townhome unique
We Just Added WiFi for guest's convenience and are working on a DVD and CD library, cable TV is also offered. The property feels like a boutique hotel but with all the privacy of a home. The location is so convenient, one does not need a car, in fact, the best way to experience the area is to stroll through the tree-lined local streets and take in the unique character of Old Town Fort Collins' shops, 84 restaurants, open air markets and activities. Open up the french doors to the entry courtyard below to hear the church bells chime in this historic, charming neighborhood just two blocks from the Old Town's downtown center.
