Red Feather Lakes Bungalow Rental Photos and Description
2BD/1BA W/ Bunk House can sleep 6 Nestled between 2 beautiful lakes!
Nestled in the woods between 2 beautiful lakes lies Blue Bird Bungalow. This charming and cozy cabin is located about 50 minutes north of Fort Collins in a beautiful aspen and pine forest in the mountains. It is a perfect for family getaways or a couple's retreat. Blue Bird Bungalow is easily accessible year round. Each season provides its own charm. Winter activities, including ice skating, cross country skiing and tubing, are available at the nearby Beaver Meadows Resort (20 min). Ice fishing on Lake Dowdy is sure to be a treat!
The spring brings wildflowers, trees beginning to bloom, hummingbirds, warm sunshine followed by crisp nights. Brilliantly changing leaves and crisp mountain air provide the perfect autumn setting for scenic drives along the Poudre River...one of the most famous fall color sighting areas. Summers are simply spectacular with great hikes, fishing and family campfires complete with S' mores while star gazing from the front deck!
The bungalow has been completely remodeled since purchasing it in 2010. It is very clean and well kept. New appliances and bathroom fixtures keep the cabin feeling updated but not to modern to lose the rustic, cozy charm you'll feel inside.
For those times when you are stuck inside, there's plenty to do: Satellite TV, DVD and Play Station, a variety of DVDs for kids and adults, a pub table for playing cards or other games. The many windows help to bring the light and outside in! The brightness provides a feeling of being outside and watching the elements while remaining cozy inside!
There is a master bedroom (Queen bed) with a connected completely re-done large bathroom. There is a small bedroom with a twin bed. The two sofas in the main living area both make into Queen size beds as well.
The mountain-based decor and the cabinetry in the house give it a warm, cozy feeling throughout. Our large kitchen is equipped with all of the utensils you're accustomed to cooking with and more! Talk to the cook or play games from the eat-in-kitchen area. Enjoy your day outdoors, relax with your favorite beverage on the deck and prepare your meals on the grill for a delicious evening. There is a fireplace on the main deck as well as a fire pit on the side of property behind bunk house. There is plenty of room for the kids to roam on our 1 acre parcel... plenty of rock out croppings to hike on and horseshoes to play! There is a storage shed located behind the main house for all of your fishing equipment or outdoor toys!
The bunkhouse provides extra sleeping for older children or extended family/friends... There is a double bed for the bottom bunk and a twin bed on top... You can easily fit another twin blow up bed on the floor!
Blue Bird Bungalow is located 50 minutes north of Fort Collins in Red Feather Lakes, at nearly 9,000 feet elevation. We are located just on the backside of Lake Dowdy public day use area... a quick stroll from the cabin. There is another private lake to the West, Lake Letitia... has a nice trail around it also. This is a PRIVATE fishing lake so better to stick with fishing on Lake Dowdy...they do patrol frequently! You can use this lake to canoe or kayak on, but they have strict fishing guidelines.
The town of Red Feather Lakes is just 2.5 miles from Blue Bird Bungalow, and it's surrounded by rock outcroppings and picturesque lakes. It's a fun little mountain town with a small library, post office, general stores, ice cream parlor, and art gallery. Also close by is Fox Acres Country Club, ranked among the top ten semi-private courses in the country, and numerous other outdoor activities.

About Kimberley Hattem
We are the Hattem Family of 5! We have 3 VERY active children in sports, so rather than letting our cabin sit empty and lonely, we would love to share it with your family! We live down the road in Ft. Collins and love to escape to this area, when we get a chance. As you know when children get older those opportunities get fewer and fewer... Enjoy nature with your little ones while you can, and enjoy our lovely little cabin!
Kimberley Hattem purchased this bungalow in 2010
Why Kimberley Hattem chose Red Feather Lakes
We chose this cabin because of the property location, as well as the close proximity to our primary residence. We saw so much potential and rustic charm in it. We have completely re-done the inside to make it feel updated with nice amenities, while keeping the rustic simpleness it had. We wanted a place to just escape and relax without having to worry about managing a home too large in size that we were spending our whole time cleaning! Our goal was to provide a place for our children to escape and enjoy being kids! We loved the property that this home was located on so we felt we could spread out and enjoy nature without getting in a car!
What makes this bungalow unique
We are located 50 minutes to downtown Ft. Collins and all of the activities they offer in the summer time... We are also 20 minutes to Beaver Meadows which offers a variety of activities every season of the year! We have great cafes, hiking trails and everything else accessible in between. Make sure to visit the quaint town of Red Feather Lakes, the library and Gnome Road by Lake Hiawatha. Sure to delight the kids!
