Gayle Esarey purchased this apartment in 1985
We started here and made this home a comfortable, updated, clean dwelling. It has a beautiful yard with mature landscaping, tables and chairs outside, nearby walking/biking trails, Spring Creek and Roland Moore Park. If you want to explore our city, we have museums, miniature golf, golf, a dinner theater, movies, mountains, streams, Horse Tooth Reservoir, and shopping. We also have wonderful restaurants and breweries to visit. Downtown is very popular for walking and browsing many shops and restaurants. Entertainment at the downtown plaza is fun during summer. In August is the August Fest. Taste of Ft. Collins is in June. Many locals bike everywhere on the bike lanes or the bike trails. Fitness is serious business for many here. This property is 2 miles from downtown and several blocks from the trail to Roland Moore Park trail or Spring Creek bike trail.
During summer months, you will find it spacious, comfortable, and cool. In winter, it is warm, spacious comfortable, and relaxing. The quarters are also very clean and attractively decorated. During the week, if you want chocolate chip cookies, just let me know. I have met many interesting people through this business!
We are located on a family-oriented, dead-end street. The children often play on their skate boards, hockey, basketball, and riding their bikes. Watch for them as you ?approach the house.
Close within close travel is Centerra shopping center in Loveland or go West on Highway 34 to Estes Park and walk throughout the town to visit the many shops.
CU Boulder is also within driving distance up Highway 287 West on Highway 66, South on Hover Street in Longmont. You can easily catch Highway 119 and go West to Boulder. Pearl Street is a well known area as well as CU campus. Maps for these areas are posted in the apartment for viewing.
Throughout your travels, you will likely see deer, elk, mountain sheep, marmots, squirrels, and maybe bear and beaver, or wild turkeys. The elk have made their home in Estes Park and wonder throughout town without fear.
Park in the drive-way or on the street. Welcome to my house! Enjoy your stay!
Gayle was great and so were the homemade cookies she had awaiting me upon my arrival. The property was greatly furnished and the location was centrally located with nearby walking trails and shopping. I would go back in a heartbeat! Nancy
Gayle was a great host! It was home away from home! Thanks!
My mother and I made a short visit to Fort Collins and found this location to be both quiet and convenient. The apartment is downstairs and separate from the rest of the living space. While a little on the cooler side (which was nice for the hotter summers!), the bathroom had a built-in heater, which made showering in the morning particularly comfortable. It was nice having our own sitting area and entertainment in the form of books and movies, as well as fridge and mini-kitchen...hope to utilize the neat Nuwave Oven next time. Gayle was a wonderfully attentive host, who even made us quiche for breakfast one morning! The backyard is beautiful and extra-welcoming, and so is her dog, who knows a ton of cool tricks. We had a lovely time staying with Gayle and enjoyed meeting her mom, who was in town for part of our stay. Gayle gave us plenty of privacy but was available should we have needed anything. We thoroughly enjoyed staying with her, and hope to make it back to see her soon!
It was not exactly a happy occasion that brought us to Colorado, so it was nice to feel like we were heading "home" each night after our long days. The apartment is clean, spacious, quiet, and very comfortable. Even laundry facilities if you need them. Kitchen had everything we needed.
Can say enough about the owner and her welcoming nature! She even cooked us breakfast one morning and it was delicious. Thank you for everything!
We'll be back!
Our stay was wonderful in every respect. Spacious and well appointed space with an incredibly warm welcome. Gayle was very understanding when out arrival was delayed. Her breakfast was tasty and her manner gracious.
Spring Creek biking trails are 3 blocks North and West. Roland Moore Park is North across Drake Road. At Roland Moore you have the softball games, play basketball, volleyball, children's equipment, or walk along the path. Many people bike these trails throughout Ft Collins.
CSU campus is just 2 miles North up Shields Street. From there continue North and East on Mountain Avenue to walk around historic downtown Fort Collins among the many shops and restaurants.
At the fountain in old town, during summer months listen to various local musicians and visiting groups while enjoying great food from nearby restaurants.
