Why The Owner chose Erie

I purchased the property to enjoy the benefits of bicycling and running on the Front Range and to enjoy the proximity of Boulder!Erie is one of the last quaint little coal mining towns that has been very nicely preserved and carefully introduced to tastefully finished cafes and parks.

Cozy, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We'll likely stay again.

Mark graciously helped us out with an unexpected med. issue; Sue & her handy shovel removed a squirrel which had died in the back yard. They were always ready to give a hand.

We loved seeing the photos of the before and after transformation of the cottage.

Our granddaughter saw Leslie in one of the photos & said, "she's beautiful! I want to meet her!" ( :

A Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Lesley’s Casita is my deal vacation home away from home.

Mark and Susie are wonderful property managers and keep the Casita immaculate and they are extremely helpful.

Old Erie and the picturesque town is a delightful old fashioned town.

Perfect for our stay

We always enjoy Lesley’s casita! It’s clean, cozy and convenient. The owner responds very quickly to my questions and the property managers live right next door to the house.

We look forward to staying there again when we visit family.

Nestled in Old Town Erie Colorado - #1 Family Community in Colorado

  • 4 of 5

Quaint cottage in the heart of Old Town on a fairly quiet street. Loved taking nightly walks in old town and sitting on the back porch listening to the birds and watching the squirrels.
