Bayside retreat for 2 people. Enjoy miles of hiking and biking trails right from your door. Fish, boat, swim and play in Horsetooth Reservoir- marina and boat launch just down the road. Or just relax on the patios with a good book and cool drink while taking in the views. Our casita is located right across from Inlet Bay on Horsetooth Reservoir in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. 20 minutes to Old Town Fort Collins. Easy drive to Estes Park and Poudre River Canyon.
The casita provides 600 sq ft of space that includes a bedroom, full bath and an open living room/kitchen area. Three sliding doors provide access to two patio areas and great views of the water and cliffs that surround the reservoir. We provide trail maps and other information about the activities in the area for you. The casita has a fully stocked kitchen- coffee, tea, creamer, sugar, honey, dishes, cooking utensils, etc. and a grill available on the patio. Hair dryer, soap, shampoo and conditioner provided. Extra pillows, bedding, towels, and beach towels, are also available on sight. If something is missing that you would like to have during your stay, let us know and we will provide if possible. Please note that the casita is comfortable for only two guests.
Access the casita via the back door on the west side by the driveway. The key-less entry will be coded to the last 4 digits of the phone number you provide so it is easy to remember.
Interaction with guests
We are pretty laid back as hosts. We know you are here to enjoy a quiet stay and that is what we provide but we are available if you need something. However, our cat, Kimba, may want to visit with you . Please don't feed him or let him into the casita as we want to keep it dander free for those guests with cat allergies.
Other things to note
We live in an area where people come to recreate. County parks border our property to the east and north. There is a campground across the road that provides space and lake access to tent and RV campers. Trail access to a vast trail system runs right by the property. There is often a lot of activity on the weekends with bicyclists, hikers, campers, and folks enjoying the bay. That said, the casita is a peaceful and fun place to stay.
Enjoy your stay but respect the quiet enjoyment of others in the neighborhood.
