Beautiful and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the apartment is MUCH NICER than the photos show...very spacious. Location just outside Fort Collins--easy access to shopping without all the activity. Gorgeous countryside views even with close proximity to major road. James and his family are great hosts--easy to converse with, yet give you private space. Kitchen could be a little more fleshed out for anyone who cooks. We stayed with our two dogs with no problems.

So peaceful!

Thanks for sharing your place with us! Excellent hosts! The apartment was so cute. So quiet and peaceful here. We really enjoyed watching the horses and sheep. We enjoyed Laporte and Ft Collins very much.

Better than a hotel

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in VRBOS from the Florida Keys to the San Juan Islands in Washington and we have stayed in VRBOs all over our amazing home state of Colorado. We had a great weekend away in Fort Collins exploring Poudre Canyon, Red Feather Lakes and the Taste of Fort Collins. The home is only 10 minutes from Fort Collins.

The owners live on the property and this house is attached to their barn. They were easy to work with and friendly. The house was clean and finished using an eclectic collection of materials. The property is located on Highway 287 so there is a lot of road noise though it's somewhat buffered by a hillside.

This was a nice VRBO but it had some concerns. The VRBO property description stated it had air conditioning but what it really has are 2 ceiling fans (main room & bedroom) and a portable air conditioner (bedroom). It functioned well enough, provided you had the exhaust tube configured correctly (it had a tendency to fall out of place) but it sounded like a Boeing 747 was taking off as you slept. (It was mid-90s during our trip so very, very warm in the house). The description also states there is a gas grill, which technically there was. However, it was an old rusted grill full of wasps' nests and had no propane tank. We can’t imagine the last time it was cleaned and used. Lastly, 2 of 3 smoke detectors weren’t present; just wires coming out of the ceiling where they should have been installed. There wasn’t a dishwasher but it wasn't included in the description either. We were just surprised it wasn't present as it's a common appliance.

This is the most critical VRBO review we have ever written but it's still a good VRBO. Most VRBOs exceed your expectations and exceed the pictures. This VRBO was slightly below our expectations. With that said, it was still nicer than staying in a hotel room and we would recommend this house but just a few things to be aware of that aren't clear in the description.

Very Clean and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. My favorite was early coffee watching the horses and the sheep grazing on the mountain side.

Needed quiet and we found it!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at James and Claudia's country get away was exactly what we needed...quiet and peaceful. The apartment is in a separate building away from their home, so we rarely saw them. James let us know that if we needed anything at all he was available. The apartment is well equipment, warm on cool days and ceiling fan + evap cooler for warmer days. We cooked most of our meals in and ate outside in the fire pit/ picnic area just outside the front door. When we wanted to eat out, go to the grocery store or fishing, there are opportunities close by. Ft. Collins is less than ten minutes away with just about anything you need. LaPorte has a grocery store, restaurants and service stations. We hope to be back for another stay soon.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. Visiting from California and much preferred to be in the "country" and we were not disappointed. Claudia and James were wonderful and very accommodating. The place was better than pictures. Very comfortable and we had everything we needed. Really enjoyed the horses and especially Peaches a mule/horse? She greeted us every time we went outside. I would highly recommend this place. I know we would stay there again!
