Spacious comfortable sunny house-private ya… – vrbo grade 6 electricity


The Lake Street house is perfect for a couple or 8 people. The house is on a quiet Cul-de-sac within a mile of Colorado State, 3 miles from old town and close to markets, restaurants and bike trails. It has a sunny open floor plan and a private yard. This 3+* bedroom, 3 ½ bath house has a master bedroom with a king memory foam mattress and en suite bath on the main floor with another full bath across the hall. There are two bedrooms downstairs; one with a queen bed and the other with twin beds. There is another full bath downstairs. The spare room has 2 beds in it; a full and a twin. There is a sofa sleeper in the living room and we have an inflatable queen mattress if you need it. And with 3 ½ baths, there’s no waiting.

The kitchen is open and fully outfitted with a gas stove, broiler, side by side refrigerator, oven, dishwasher and microwave. There are good knives, plenty of pots and pans, plates and glassware. We have coffee, spices and basics like oil, sugar and flour to make cooking easy. Eat in the sunny dining room or out on the deck. In the summer, you can pick vegetables from the garden just outside the back door and grill them on the barbeque. Don’t want to cook? We have a menus and recommendations for local restaurants, take out and delivery.

This house is architecturally re-designed to be comfortable for a couple, a family or extended family and friends. We want this to feel like home right away whether you’re staying for a couple of nights, a week or a couple of months. The large Living Room with a gas fireplace is open to the Dining Room with floor to ceiling greenhouse windows and plenty of plants. There is WiFi throughout the house. There’s a sitting room upstairs and a game room downstairs with air hockey and Foosball tables so there are plenty of places to hang out with others or be by yourself. It’s a great house for reunions, graduation parties, dinner parties and just hanging out. This is a ranch house with an accessible main floor which includes the washer and dryer. We have 5 bikes in the garage you can use to explore.

After a long day working, hiking, rafting or sightseeing, come home to relax and re-charge. We love art and books and have an eclectic collection of both throughout the house for you to enjoy. Have a barbeque on the spacious deck or sit in front of a cozy fire. Read a book or play in the game room. Walk to Moby Gym to see a volleyball or basketball game. And, if you need anything, we’re right next door.

Our group of 8 loved our stay at Sue and Whitney’s house, and all would gladly return if we end up in Fort Collins again! The house was a perfect setup for our group, especially with the ability to close off the upstairs sleeping area from the two main living areas for those that went to sleep or got up earlier than others. The beds were comfortable with plenty of bedding. There is extra of everything (pillows, blankets, towels, dishes), and even with a group of 8 people we had more than enough places to sleep, sit, eat, etc. The only complaints from our group were the doors and creaky floors were a little noisy at times, particularly for those sleeping downstairs.

The house has been expanded to have more space and light in every room. Everything is clean and in order. The location is a nice, quiet neighborhood just a 10-minute drive (or about 20 min bike ride) from the old town. Nights in the house are quiet and dark. The yard, deck and garden are fantastic. Mornings bring birdsong among the flowering trees. It’s a little bit like paradise.

Sue and Whitney are fantastic hosts, right next door, and are very responsive if there are any problems. Staying at their house feels like you are staying at an extension of their home. Our time there set the stage for a great, fun-filled extended weekend in Fort Collins. I highly recommend it!
