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
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.
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.
Here are just a few comments from our guest book:
'The condo exceeded all my expectations. I absolutely loved it here' SJ 'This was the best decorated place we have stayed at, comfortable yet sophisticated.' Everyone who came over loved it and said they were unaware of such a great place in the best location. Thank you so much' AW
'Our favorite moment was walking in here and seeing how beautiful this place was! Thank you we hope to come again' TS
' I wish I had your decorating sense Susan, can you come to my house and help me?' SN
Perfectly appointed for our family of 3! Clean, inviting, comfortable, super close access to old town Ft Collins.
We hope to stay here again the next time we visit our son.
Clean condo in a pretty neighborhood. Close to downtown and CSU. Highly recommend.
This is our second time staying at this VRBO and we loved it again as much as the first time. Its so close to old town making it easy to walk or bike to your destinations, yet far enough from the noise and busyness to make the space more serene. Its just on the edge of the neighborhood on one of Fort Collins prettiest streets so you are in a good location for neighborhood strolls or bike rides. The place itself has a great layout, tons of light and windows to open for fresh air. Everything is super clean and well-maintained. The decor is super lovely - elegant but not stuffy. I hosted a small dinner party and the kitchen had everything I needed (well, it could use better cutting knives, but that's the only thing I can complain about!) I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed for 4 nights and found this property to be just what we needed while visiting Fort Collins!
Owner is awesome, house is super clean, has great space, beds were great, fluffy towels, kitchen was nice for breakfasts and there was even an umbrella for the rain we encountered! Nice distance for walking to old town. Just what we needed to enjoy time with our adult daughter who stayed with us! So much to do in the area we were only there to sleep mainly! Book with confidence!
Thanks again Susan!
Oh goodness, there is just not enough I can say about this condo. First off, the owner was fantastic to work with and communicated well. Second, the home is in the perfect location. Just an easy few blocks walk to the best Old Town has to offer. Third, the home is just immaculate. It was clean and inviting and the decor was just stunning! I want Sue to come decorate my home! Every room is filled with incredibly eclectic art and furnishings, but somehow it still maintains this minimalist feel all while making you feel completely at ease. It honestly is an amazing contradiction to me that it can be both stunning and understated, yet it absolutely is. Also the bed was just fantastic, the linens and the mattress were just luxurious. If we come back to Fort Collins for another vacation, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
This neighborhood is within 2 blocks of Historic Old Town's Downtown where there are charming restaurants, theaters, unique shopping, museums, galleries and more. This is a five minute walk or less to all of the above, if you want to leave your car behind and experience this delightful walkable community, you want to be located in Old Town!! The owners have put together an 'Insiders Guide' including all the best of the above establishments for their guests to reference during their stay. Our guests have very positive comments regarding the environment as well as the great close-by dining and entertainment options.
