Gail purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Gail chose Greeley
Farm life is a wonderful alternative to this crazy busy world. Our hope is that we can touch your heart with the peace, restoration, and renewal found in this amazing land. It is our desire that the Spirit of Peace found here will continue to live on in your heart wherever you go.”
What makes this Cottage unique
We fall in love with this historic farm (Built in 1906) which is full of tall green trees and a creek. The landscape is amazing--cross the corn fields and wow take your breath away. Swan Meadow Cottages is one of northern Colorado's best kept secrets. It is so quiet here and only 15 miles away from the larger city limits.

We stayed at Swan Meadow Cottages for three nights over Labor Day weekend. It was the best choice we could have made. Even better than a 5-star hotel as my husband described it.
We didn't want to stay up in the mountains because of the elevation. The cottage is wonderful. The garden surrounding the house is beautiful. The owners had set up a hammock for us to use. When we came into the house we found home-made banana bread and all kinds of snacks for us to take to our visit to Rocky Mountain National Park the next day, as well as bottled water and quiche in the refrigerator. There was a basket with sundries. Much more than in any hotel.
The owners were wonderful with our small dogs. Our dogs were delighted walking around the garden and the surrounding farm areas (on a leash).
We spent time visiting places in Colorado, but we would like to come back and spend more time at the cottage. The cottage itself is a good vacation spot for relaxing and enjoying nature.
And the owners are kind and wonderful. You feel very comfortable at their place in every sense.
Thank You for being our Guest. We enjoy making Swan Meadow A Unique Experience. I am happy that you enjoyed the beauty and serenity found here.
We are honored to have you!
A Little Slice of Heaven
We came to Colorado for a family reunion and had the pleasure of staying here for 5 days. What an amazing property! The cottage and grounds are clean and tidy. Amenities galore! The innkeepers are attentive, gracious, very kind and generous. There was a freshly baked loaf of banana bread upon our arrival which we gobbled up immediately. The house is a wonderful country getaway but is also close to downtown Greeley. This was easily the best VRBO experience my family has ever had.
We are grateful for the opportunity to meet you and serve you. We are so honored to have you and your family stay with us. Thank You!
A Great Place in the Country
Our recent Swan Meadow Cottage stay was extremely enjoyable and relaxing. We have been to numerous vacation rental but this one was not only the cleanest but was also the best equipped and supplied of any we have ever been to. The hostess Gail was exceedingly helpful, courteous, and pleasant and when out of her way to make our stay exceptional.
Thank You so much! We are so honored to have you and your family as our guest! Thank you for your wonderful feed back. We hope you can come to see us again. Thank You, Gail
Best place to stay EVER
Wow! I can't say enough about this wonderful place to stay. The rental is a beautiful cottage on a gorgeous farm which includes swans, peacocks, cows, and other animals. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and include nice outdoor seating areas to include a firepit, a hammock, and table and chairs for outside dining if desired. A gas grill is also available. There are even swings hung from tall trees which we enjoyed. The cottage is stocked with so many thoughtful creature comforts... coffee, tea, fresh fruit, soft drinks, and baked goods. The bed was comfortable and the linens were very nice quality (lots of extra fresh towels, too). My only regret is that we were so busy during our visit that we did not have more down time at the cottage to just relax and enjoy the environment. We stayed the weekend to attend our son's graduation from UNC in Greeley, Colorado, which is just an easy drive away. We definitely plan to stay at this lovely place again. I look forward to it! If you stay here, you will enjoy the property inside and out. The hostess and host are most hospitable and made me love this special place even more.
Thank You! We are so happy that you enjoyed this Unique, Wonderful Place.
We Love to share Swan Meadow Cottages and We Enjoy Our Guest.
Thank You for staying with us.
I stayed at this property for nearly five weeks with my two dogs. First, let me say that Gail & Elton Johnson are the most hospitable, accommodating hosts you will ever meet. Examples: The charcoal grill wasn't something that I felt comfortable operating. So they bought, assembled and delivered a gas grill for me. I had guests that came to stay with me for an evening, and Gail worked tirelessly to prepare the upstairs bedrooms for their arrival, and Elton cut up and delivered wood for us to have a campfire that night. Both of my dogs ended up having surgery while I was at the cottage, and Gail not only helped me nurse them both back to health, she picked up their medication from the vet's office for me AND she brought me two dozen red roses because she knew my stress level was at max capacity. She is, without a doubt, the sweetest woman I have ever met. Gail and Elton were both constantly asking if I needed anything and checking up on me. It was calving season on the farm while I was there, and every day I got updates on the new faces of the calves that had arrived. One even got out of the pasture, and Elton and I rounded him back up -- an experience I never would have had anywhere else.
As for the cottage and the grounds, it's about as private as you can get. It is the equivalent of a luxury resort. It will soothe and heal your soul. There's a canal on the property, with chaise lounge chairs beside it, as well as a hammock, under HUGE cottonwood trees. Stunningly magnificent. Outdoor seating areas are clustered around the lush green property, as well as flower beds and lilac trees.
Inside, the cottage is the most well-stocked property that you will EVER visit. Here are just a few of the luxuries that Gail has ensured every guest enjoys: Home baked banana bread, quiche, nuts, crackers, chocolates, organic butter, milk and eggs, fresh fruit, fresh flowers, etc. On top of that, the farm is a working farm, which means that Gail and Elton have delicious steaks and eggs available for sale, too. The kitchen has everything imaginable; Kuerig, crock pot, all utensils, dishware, vases, etc. The home itself is beautifully and tastefully decorated. It's gorgeous.
Living on the farm means that you'll watch the guinea hens (they're like a group of little old ladies running around & gossiping), swans, peacocks, ducks and geese just walk on by, as if to say, "Good morning! How are you?"
The Johnson's cottage is good for your soul

We value your input. Thank You, Gail
Relaxing get away
Great little house on a wonderful piece of property. Enjoyed all the wildlife in the yard. House was very clean and the snacks/food was very helpful (and plentiful) since it is away from a town. Would stay here again. Sitting by the fire pit in a restful environment was a real retreat from the city.
