About this listing

Country atmosphere close to Old Town, Poudre River and Horsetooth trails. Oh, and we have loaner bikes.

The space

Clean one-room cabin with wood stove near the Cache La Poudre River and Old Town Fort Collins. Private access and parking in safe and quiet semi-rural neighborhood. Kids and pets welcome in our large fenced yard complete with shaded patio with outdoor fireplace, gardens, 1 dog and 10 chickens.

We're an adventurous couple with two daughters who like to cook, garden, raft, kayak, rock climb, backpack, hike, flyfish, run, knit, and mountain bike. We've lived in Colorado our entire lives and over 20 years in Fort Collins and can give you lots of great suggestions for the area. If you're flying in there's no need to rent a car since we're just one block from a bus stop or you can borrow one of our townie bikes and take the Poudre River trail 2.5 miles to Old Town, Odell or Equinox Breweries. Take the trail 3 miles west to Laporte to hear some honky-tonk or bluegrass at the Swing Station.

The cabin has a comfy queen sized bed and we can add a cot or inflatable mattress upon request. Guests can access the bathroom and shower through the back door of the main house (just 5 feet away). The cabin also has WIFI, electricity and electric heater (but no AC). You're welcome to use the dining room, kitchen, stove and fridge in main house.

Pets are welcome, there's even a doggy-door so your pet can go in and out as it pleases. Please add each pet as an additional guest.

Kayakers and rafters are welcome! We're only 15 minutes to some of the best whitewater in Colorado. The Cache La Poudre River is protected as one of the last "Wild and Scenic" rivers in the United States.

From DIA take Greenride or Supershuttle right to our doorstep ~$48.

Guest access

Guests can access the common bathrooms, kitchen and dining room anytime day or night. They're also welcome to light-up a fire in the patio fireplace and hangout there as much as they please (being respectful of host and neighbors' sleeping patterns of course).

Interaction with guests

We've met some amazing people through Airbnb and love hanging-out with guests. We also recognize that some people like to lay-low and we respect that too.

Other things to note

Old town is 2 miles away. The Poudre river is 1 mile. And reservoir ridge trail is 2 miles.

Perfect stopover for a traveler who wants quiet space with a warm family hosting. I felt immediately like a family friend being given a warm welcome. Hard to leave as there were fresh eggs cooking on the stove and an offer to take a walk to the neighborhood pond and park. I look forward to a reason to return.

Very cozy and exactly as described. Annie and Dave went out of their way to accommodate our late check-in while providing an excellent pho restaurant. If we come back to Fort Collins, this will be our spot once again!

Annie and Dave are lovely hosts and we really had a great stay! We especially enjoyed the clucking chickens and very sweet dog. Location worked fine for us - great access to the North and South. Area was very quiet and patio is really sweet. Probably good to know that the bathroom and shower are shared in the house, several steps from the cabin.

Annie and Dave are great. Place is exactly as described, and the whole family is very generous and accommodating. They even have a printed up list of over 30 activities in the area, trail maps, a brewery tour route, and bikes you can use. And Clary the dog is awesome too! :)
