Overview

Fort Collins House Rental Photos and Description

3+ bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom house fully equipped for a night, a week or a month

The Lake Street house is perfect for a couple or 10 people. We adjust the rates according to number of people to make it affordable for all. The house is on a quiet Cul-de-sac within a mile of Colorado State, 3 miles from old town and close to markets, restaurants and bike trails. It has a sunny open floor plan and a private yard. This 3* bedroom, 3 ½ bath house has a master bedroom with a king memory foam mattress and en-suite bath on the main floor with another full bath across the hall. There are two bedrooms downstairs; one with a queen bed and the other with twin beds. There is another full bath downstairs. The office has 2 beds in it. There is a sofa sleeper in the living room and we have an inflatable queen mattress if you need it. And with 3 ½ baths, there’s no waiting.

The kitchen is open and fully outfitted with a gas stove, broiler, side by side refrigerator, oven, dishwasher and microwave. There are good knives, plenty of pots and pans, plates and glassware. We have coffee, spices and basics like oil, sugar and flour to make cooking easy. Eat in the sunny dining room or out on the deck. In the summer, you can pick vegetables from the garden just outside the back door and grill them on the barbeque. Don’t want to cook? We have a menus and recommendations for local restaurants, take out and delivery.

This house is architecturally re-designed to be comfortable for a couple, a family or extended family and friends. We want this to feel like home right away whether you’re staying for a night, a week or a couple of months. There’s a large Living Room with a gas fireplace and Dining Room with floor to ceiling greenhouse windows and plenty of plants. The main floor has an office. There is WiFi throughout the house. There’s a sitting room upstairs and a game room downstairs with AIR HOCKEY and FOOSBALL tables. It’s a great house for reunions, graduation parties, dinner parties and just hanging out. This is a ranch house with an accessible first floor which includes the washer and dryer. There’s a bird feeder outside the window to keep you entertained when you get bored with the TV, WiFi and air hockey. There are 7 bikes in the garage you can use to explore.

After a long day working, hiking, rafting or sightseeing, come home to relax and re-charge. We love art and books and have an eclectic collection of both throughout the house for you to enjoy. Watch our awesome Colorado sunsets or sit in front of a cozy fire. Read a book or surf the web. Walk to Moby Gym to see a volleyball or basketball game. And, if you need anything, we’re right next door.

*Office has 2 twin beds but no closet, so it is acts as a 4th bedroom but isn't officially a bedroom.

About The Owner

Sue and Whitney moved to Fort Collins 30 years ago and raised their children here. Whitney works at CSU and Sue for the City, so we know a lot of what's going on around town. We chose this location because it was close to everything but gave us a little space and privacy.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Fort Collins

In 2003, Sue's parents bought this house to live next to us. Sue's father was an architect and he re-designed the house to make a really comfortable and elegant space. When they moved into assisted living, Sue and Whitney bought it. It was so nicely furnished, they thought it would be great to rent it that way.

What makes this house unique

The open floor plan and big windows bring the outdoors in. With the sun streaming across the rooms, it's hard not to think that the world is full of possibilities. This is a lovely place to have a dinner party or a garden party.

Retreat from the Swim Meet!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Lake House three times -- it is our favorite for our visits to Ft. Collins. As usual, our stay was wonderful. The house is spacious, clean, and comfortable. We had plenty of room for two families over the weekend of a swim meet at EPIC. It was wonderful to be able to come relax at "home" and not a hotel room. The kitchen is stocked with great tools and it was wonderful to smell the orange blossoms in the kitchen! Sue (the owner) offers lots of great recommendations and directions for nearby grocery and liquor stores and restaurants.

Unless this property is booked for my dates, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for a group of people or just a few. The owners are very near by if you need them, there was fresh garden produce for us to use, and it was a very relaxing place to stay. I would love to go back to this house next summer for our annual mom/sister vacation. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad it worked for you and love that you were able to enjoy the garden. What a nice group of people. Please come back any time. We always enjoy return guests.

A very charming and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this wonderful home while in in Ft Collins for our son's wedding. It worked out so well with all the family there and we were also able to host a small dinner party. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and so welcoming. The property was just as it was described and photographed. I would highly recommend this to families ,the layout of the house was very spacious and everyone had their own space if needed.

W. Lake House Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Fort Collins for our daughter's wedding. We hosted a large family dinner and the house is well equipped to handle large crowds. We had extra family staying with us and everyone enjoyed the house and yard! The house was near Old Town so we had tons to do. Everyone was pleased with the accommodations!

The Lake Street House is within a mile of Colorado State University. Fort Collins is known for it's great micro-breweries. There are also many great restaurants of all kinds close by. The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery recently opened and is the first science and history museum in the world. It's a great place to explore for both adults and children. There's a wonderful bike trail system around the city and beyond, passing through great natural areas. And, of course the mountains are just minutes away with wonderful hiking, skiing, mountain biking and rafting.
