About Catherine & Lee Medders

We are both laid back and enjoy traveling and being outdoors. We moved to Colorado from Texas in January 2011, and although we enjoyed our time in Texas we can’t say we regret the move. Months after getting here Lee decided his 8 years in the Army was not enough and went to Afghanistan as a civilian for two years, so I started to explore Colorado myself and man has it changed my life. Now, Lee is back and we are able to enjoy it together. We love the laid back environment of Fort Collins, and the fact that we can hike, bike, ski, and enjoy the water right out our back door. We would love to open our home to you during your stay in Fort Collins.

Catherine & Lee Medders purchased this house in 2012

Why Catherine & Lee Medders chose Fort Collins

Fort Collins had everything we were looking for when we decided to leave Houston in 2011, and after spending a year in an apartment we decided that this was the place for us. The main reason we picked our house was because of the location and the old town charm it had to offer. It has been completely updated but you can still tell that it was built in 1937. The location is perfect, there is really no reason for a car unless you are planning on hitting the slopes or just taking a scenic drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your lovely home. We very much enjoyed our stay here in Fort Collins and are looking forward to visiting the area again. Loved how close the home was to everything and it has so much more charm and personality than a hotel.

Beautiful Home, Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

This place is / was perfect. We came in to see my sister graduate veterinary school so we had 5 people staying at the house. Plenty of room from each other if needed. The downstairs was nice with an extra bedroom down there! Kitchen had plenty of space and appliances provided. the upstairs bedrooms were great too, each equipped with its own HDTV. There are plenty of things to do in Fort Collins but even when staying in a night or two, there is an Xbox 360 in main room on a 50" (around there) screen, nice touch! Between that and the pingpong table and fussball I'm sure we could have stayed in longer and kept ourselves entertained. Overall, this is an amazing place. Plenty to do, close to town and the university, grill and hammock outside as well really made this our home for a week and not just a place to crash. Last thing I'll say is that the owners were tremendously helpful. We screwed up and set off the alarm and they were in touch and fixed it , I think we did that twice to them , we felt horrible but they swore it wasn't a problem , I hope they see this and know that they are great people and they helped us create some memories that we will never forget. Thanks to the Medders, you guys are wonderful.

Lovely House.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Plenty of activities at the house to keeps kids entertained on a rainy day. We made use of the outdoor space, hammock, ping pong table, etc. We found the highchair when we were checking out, and enjoyed not having to travel with our pack-n-play yard for our toddler. Parking was fine when we arrived (sunday), but then during the week (school in session and college neighborhood parking) the parking was hit or miss. We advise guests to take owners up on the parking pass, especially if you have older people in your party not used to hunting for parking and worried about dinging their rental car from parking next to college kids.

Lovely Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home! We were in town for a niece's January wedding and several of my family members shared this home. It was really wonderful. The bedrooms are nice size and that basement really comes in handy if you have kids locked up in the house because it's cold outside. My mother couldn't stop raving about the place, she kept saying it was the best rental she had ever been in. It really felt like someone had welcomed us into their home. We had everything we needed including a high chair, a pack and play and a baby gate!

The only con we dealt with is that the house is a little drafty when it's 10 degrees outside. Cranking up the heat and building a fire make it quite cozy but I would still recommend warm pjs and slippers if you are staying in the wintertime.
