About Chuck Marso

Chuck and Jill are animal lovers (and have 4 Golden Retrievers and 2 cats to prove it). They love travel and the outdoors and have tried to incorporate their love of both into the theme of this vacation rental. Chuck loves to garden, tri-athalons, and relaxing on the beach. Jill loves decorating, refinishing furniture and photography. The couple makes their home in the farm country of Colorado.

Chuck Marso purchased this House in 2005

Why Chuck Marso chose Trail Head

The Old Town area of Fort Collins is rich with activities for the whole family. We chose this location because of the close proximity to Old Town while still having the benefits of a quiet neighborhood and open setting to enjoy the Colorado outdoors.

What makes this House unique

Pet friendly with a fully fenced yard. Located on a quiet culdesac backing to open space with Rocky mountain views.

This home has everything you would need and more!! We had reasons of our own making to contact the host, and he was so very prompt and helpful in his responses. We would highly recommend this home!

                                                                    The value was great, very comfortable for an extended family get together. Some updating for the decor would be nice. The kitchen had a lot of random items and sometimes was a challenge to piece together the essentials but overall a great experience and would recommend to others!

                                                                    Great for families

                                                                    We stayed the week of Thanksgiving - Saturday to Saturday. This is a great home for families - we were able to make meals / hang out, etc. It even had toys (books, crayons, coloring books) for young children - which was incredibly helpful. The neighborhood was great too - a couple of blocks walk to a small playground. We would look to stay here again, with one exception - I forget how spread out Fort Collins is and although we weren't that many miles away from "old town" we weren't as centrally located as I had thought we would be. We did uber to old town and it was about $11 / 10 minute drive - so not bad, but just not walkable. Overall, the house was perfect for what we needed - clean, spacious, and comfortable.

                                                                    Very Comfortable Home

It is about 10 minutes from CSU and old town and is away from the traffic of the college area in a very quiet neighborhood. The bottle of wine was very much appreciated when we arrived and the instructions were excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

The home is in a nice neighborhood with green spaces all around. The backyard was perfect for sitting on a sunny afternoon! We had a great visit!
