Why Lori Emery chose Front Range Colorado

Rick purchased this property in 1988, In 2004 we turned the property into a vacation rental property, there were no properties at Horsetooth Resevoir that you could rent by the night. This was a long time dream of Lori's to share this area with the public. We have been building up our client base every since. We have a lot of people that stay every year with us and just love it here. There is so much to do while staying here. Hiking, biking, boating, skiing, site seeing, you name it the Colorado Rockies are right outside your door, we have Northern Colorado's largest Lake right across the street.

What makes this condo unique

Our Condos are located right across the street from the Largest Lake in Northern Colorado (Horsetooth Reservoir) there are miles and miles of hiking and biking trails, Full service Marina right across the street, swim beach only a mile away, 15 minutes to Down town Fort Collins, 60 minutes to Downtown Denver, We are located between The Poudre Canyon 30 minutes Northwest and the Thompson Canyon 15 minutes Southwest. Keep going about 15 minutes more and you are in Beautiful Estes Park. White water rafting is available on both Rivers. Old Town Fort Collins is only 20 minutes away where you can enjoy fine dinning, lots of local pubs and several breweries. New Belgium Brewing Co., Odell Brewing Co., CooperSmith's Brewing Co and Budweiser Brewery.The Lincoln Center can entertain you with all kinds of plays and music. Last but not least The Colorado Rocky Mountains are here WOW!!!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at one of the condos and it was perfect for our needs! Literally across the street from the marina parking entrance. We were visiting to see friends that have boats on the marina dock, so the location was great for us to visit them and spend the day there and head back to the cozy condo at night. Was also close enough to Ft. Collins that we could go into town for dinner/brewery tastings/etc. and enjoy the city as well! The entire process with Lori was seamless and she was very quick to reply back to our questions. Will definitely recommend to friends and would stay here again!

Close to the Marina

  • 4 of 5

Great way to join our family/friends who were camping at the reserved camping spaces at Inlet Bay. We could join them at the Lake, sit by the campfire and then return to the comfortable bed, hot shower and kitchen just up the road! Comfortable, clean and quiet. Lori was great!

Beautiful location just 10 minutes from town!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! The unit was well maintained and had everything we needed. My only regret was that we had too many things to do in town--wanted to just hang out and enjoy the views and quiet! Nice hiking paths were just steps from the front door! We would definitely stay here again next time we are in town! Thanks!

Just Right.

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to Colorado for a family reunion. We wanted a Colorado experience, close to Ft. Collins but not in town. What a pleasure to wake up and see the landscape and water! We enjoyed having our own little patio in back, even had a doe and two fawns in the yard one morning! We enjoyed the public beach and loved kayaking on the reservoir.

Lori went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one! Thank you Lori!!! We enjoyed our time and would love to go back someday.

Quiet, restful and charming.

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have rented from Lake Shore Marina Condos and it will definitely not be our last. Everything we could possibly need was right there. We have family in the area but it was nice to have our own little place to retreat to. Lori was so nice and has such a good sense of humor.

Terrific Mountain Stay. ALL the amenities of home, gorgeous views, courteous owners.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in one of their units and was absolutely delighted. The weather here on the reservoir, nestled in the foothills, was drastically better than the weather down in the city yet the drive to the city is maybe only 10-15 minutes max. Wifi worked great, satellite TV, full kitchen, full bath, Fold out couch/futon which is very comfortable. Lori and Rick (the owners) are very courteous and located right on site if ever you need anything. Woke up in the morning, walked out the front door, and their the lake/reservoir stretched out before me etching through the Colorado foothills. This is where I will stay from now on.
