About the property

This beautiful loft is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood, within easy walking distance of historic Old Town Fort Collins, the main library, museums and Colorado State University. The loft is located on the second floor of a c.1902 brick carriage house. An interior staircase brings you to an open living space punctuated by large windows which let in an abundance of natural light. Original wood floors run the length of the space as well as into the adjacent bedroom. Exposed brick walls add a rustic charm and a full kitchen allows you to cook meals when you choose not to sample from the many incredible restaurants nearby.

The location and setting of this property make it the perfect place to stay while exploring what Fort Collins and the region have to offer.

About Kelly Josephs

Originally from Wisconsin, we're CSU alumni who fell in love with the area and stayed after graduation. We love living in Fort Collins. We've started a business here, raised our family here, and sent our kids to CSU as well. By inviting guests to stay in our loft, we hope they get to experience some of the things that have made Fort Collins a place we don't want to leave.

Kelly Josephs purchased this barn in 1996

Why Kelly Josephs chose Fort Collins

We first moved to Fort Collins from the midwest, to attend CSU. In the 30 years since, we've raised a family, created a thriving business, and set down roots in the Old Town area. We feel very lucky to be surrounded by interesting people, beautiful landscapes, and a wide range of activities to enjoy. There's no other place we'd rather be.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter & I stayed for 4 nights & did 2 college visits - Kelly was really helpful & accomodating...apartment just beautiful & extremely clean...all directions very clear & reasonable...w/d on 1st floor a great plus ...LOVED the eggs from the girls...had 1 each morning for breakfast!!! We also enjoyed farmers market on Saturday morning - wonderful vendors - we were able to visit so many places in Fort Collins due to location of apt - will definitely be back when planning our relocation from the Midwest to Fort Collins. Love all the town has to offer & sense of community. Thanks Kelly for opening your beautiful apartment loft. Details in the decorating & carpentry very impressive!!!

Love This Cozy Place

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about our recent stay in Fort Collins. The coach house was wonderful; everything we wanted and needed, including fresh eggs. This part of Fort Collins is called Old Town and was very charming with nice shops and restaurants close by. Plus a Whole Foods and Walmart where we picked up all our groceries. I love the design of this home as it utilizes it's space perfectly. I will cross my fingers that Kelly's place is open when we visit our son in the future.

Super Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in the Old Town Carriage House and absolutely loved this property! Perfect size for a couple or small family. It has all the accommodations that make traveling easier: full kitchen, large bathroom, washer/dryer and most importantly it is VERY clean. You can tell the owner (Kelly) takes great pride in this space and was very responsive before, during and after my stay. I would love to stay here again and hope that she has availability next time I am in town.

Obsessed with the Historic Old Town Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning, immaculate and well thought out space. Exposed bricks, original hardwood add charm while a updated kitchen and bath add function. The location is perfect, walk to Old Town for the best restaurants without the hassle of finding parking. The bed is comfortable and our gracious hosts even left farm fresh eggs waiting for us! Perfection! We will always try to stay here when in Fort Collins.
