About Ruben Blanco

Fourth generation Fort Collins resident and CSU graduate. My wife and I recently moved back to Old Town after spending 10 years in a newer home on the East side of town. We couldn't be happier to be right back in the heart of the city.

Ruben Blanco purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ruben Blanco chose Fort Collins

Old Town is THE place to be in Fort Collins. Easy access to downtown, City Park, CSU, breweries, and the many festivals throughout the year. Are you an OtterBox business traveler? We are one block away from the OtterBox Headquarters Campus.

Cozy, clean, comfortable. Within walking or biking distance to Old Town, breweries, restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. We walked and used the 2 bikes they provided to all of the great shops, restaurants parks and breweries. Only got in the car to drive an easy distance to the beautiful nature hikes. Very comfortable and cozy. Large comfortable bedroom upstairs. Living space on the main floor is small but plenty of room for 2, and besides, we did all of our living outside anyway! Owner was quick to respond to questions. Would definately recommend.

A+++

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cute little carriage house was perfect for us. The location was ideal. We rode the bikes all over the great little town. They seemed to think of everything a guest could need right down to the snacks and plenty of coffee. We really couldn't have been happier and will hopefully be able to come again. Oh and the bed was really really comfortable. You won't be disappointed if you stay there!

Carriage House Visit

  • 5 of 5

We visited our daughter and her family in Ft. Collins. The Carriage House was adorable and was equipped with all of the basics. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom, although "miniature", met our needs. We had a great time visiting the shops and drives in the canyon and mountains. Colorado is a beautiful state!

Clean and cute cottage with bicycles!

  • 5 of 5

Cute, clean, and small place that was perfect for our needs. We looked at a lot of rentals in Fort Collins, but chose this one because of the two bicycle cruisers - the great reviews also helped. The kitchenette has a mini fridge, microwave, and Keurig with plenty of coffee & tea. There were some snacks provided, which was a nice touch. The bed was very cozy. When we arrived, the smoke detector was beeping. We contacted the owner, who promptly sent a family member over to replace the battery. This was the only contact we had with the owner while there, but they responded very quickly, so this was no problem at all. The cruisers were ready to go with a lock for you to use. We rode to New Belgium Brewing for the tour, which is highly recommend. FYI: You have to make a tour reservation online in advance, and they are busy! Riding around town like a local was fun in this bike-friendly town. I would highly recommend this place!

FYI: If you're flying into Denver, don't use Fox Car Rental! It was a terrible experience. We wasted about 2 hours there (.5 in line; 1.5 waiting for a car) despite having made a reservation a couple months in advance. Horrible company, and horrible customer service!
