Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Laramie - Cottonwood Cottage

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 4 Sleeps

This beautifully decorated and charming 2 bedroom home is located in the heart of Laramie’s tree area- just 4 blocks south of the University of Wyoming. The Cottonwood Cottage was built in 1927 with many vintage features still remaining – original dining room built-in corner cabinets, arched ceiling in living room, bathroom with original decorative tiles, and beautiful hardwood floors throughout.

The home is fully furnished with bedroom and bathroom linens, hair dryer and iron. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, utensils, drinking glasses, wine glasses, spices, baking and cooking pans, coffee maker, flat top stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher. The dining room has seating for 4. In the living room you will find a 42" TV and free WIFI, card and board games are also available. The bathroom has a stackable washer and dryer.

If you are bringing children and are in need of a crib/pack-n-play, stroller or highchair, please ask.

With the close proximity of the University of Wyoming enjoy visits to the – Geological Museum, Berry Biodiversity Center, and Art Museum. There are numerous cultural programs, lecturers and athletic events as well. You are within walking distance to downtown housing numerous restaurants, bars and local shopping (10 blocks), and 2 public parks. Public transportation can be found at several bus stops around the University.

You will find within 15-45 miles wonderful hiking and biking trails, fishing, camping, skiing (Snowy Range Ski Area), and snowmobiling. Vedauwoo is a spectacular and very unique area to hike or picnic and only 15 minutes from Laramie. We are located just 2 hours from the Denver International Airport. Laramie is a great place to stay during Cheyenne’s Frontier Days as housing can be difficult to find in Cheyenne (only 45 miles).

Laramie with an elevation of 7,200 ft, we average over 230 sunny days a year with clear starry evenings. Summers are fabulous with temperatures in the 70-80 degree range with very little humidity.

About Angela and Andy Faxon

We are Wyoming natives and have lived in Laramie for many, many years. We have raised 6 children and now have 4 (soon to be 5) grandchildren. We both work full time jobs, in addition to owning a local coffee shop, Turtle Rock Coffee located across from the University. Remodeling homes and landscaping is one of our passions, it keeps us busy in our “spare” time!

Why Angela and Andy Faxon chose Wyoming

Growing up just 2 blocks from the Cottonwood Cottage, the neighborhood feels like home to me. Living in a university town we have a number of apartments houses, however we purchased this home in April 2015 and decided it would make a lovely vacation rental home. About 10 years ago we rented our first vacation home in Florida with our extended family and had the best time! You can’t beat everyone sharing a home with your family versus several motel rooms and everyone sitting on the beds to watch TV and having to eat all of your meals out. We now feel it is the only way to go and have rented many vacation homes in our travels! We love to feel like we are part of the community and to have a wonderful family home to visit new areas.

Quaint, comfortable and cozy!

A beautiful home with owners who go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The home is very well set up-not overdone, very comfortable and a great location. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying there again.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Cottonwood Cottage. The house is very comfortable and has so much character. Everything we needed was there. Before our stay, I inquired about a barbecue and Angela and Andy had one there for us upon arrival. Such a nice gesture. The house is conveniently located to the college. In fact, it's close enough to walk. Luckily for us the weather was great and we were able to do just that. I hesitate to recommend this house.......only because I'm afraid it will be booked next time I want to stay there! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much Angela and Andy.

Adorable house and gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This house was soooo charming and beautifully furnished. It was also more spacious than even the pictures made me think. We were in town for a football game with family and friends, and during our "tailgate" during the day the house easily accommodated many people socializing. The hosts are awesome! They provided great snacks, beverages, and small food items upon arrival so that we had breakfast all ready to go the next day. When they learned we would be bringing a toddler with us, they even provided a pack and play, high chair, and plates/cups/cutlery/bibs for him out of sheer kindness. I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying in Laramie!!

A Charming Bungalow in Laramie

  • 5 of 5

Our home away was lovely - spotless, beautifully decorated, well maintained, and had all the amenities we needed. The home was 4 blocks to the University and close to downtown. The owners provided flowers and many goodies on our arrival. A delightful home that we would recommend to others and hope to visit again ourselves.
