Excellent location in the gorgeous, historic Westside area of Longmont, within walking distance of Main St and several parks and hiking trails. This home--built and maintained since the 40s--is an oasis, centrally located within Longmont and Northeast Colorado, with easy reach of Denver, Boulder, Loveland, Estes Park, Lyons and Fort Collins.

The space

This home is a relaxed, beautiful, peaceful environment. You privately enjoy two bedrooms, with a hallway and bath in between. There's a door at the end of the hallway that opens to a dining and living area. Park in front of the home, walk up a few steps to the front door entrance, directly into gorgeous living and dining space. The two bedrooms have very comfortable queen size beds, a rollaway single bed, storage, desk and views of the garden. We share a fully equipped kitchen (there's a separate entrance for each of us), private back yard area and meditation space. Sheets and mattress pad are hypoallergenic and cleaning products and disinfectants are without chemicals. You'll use high quality towels and linens. There's a running air purifier rotating in the upper floor living space, portable AC in the summer months and an essential oil diffuser.

Guest access

Aside from your bedrooms, the living room and dining room are exclusively yours for your stay. The bathroom between bedrooms is yours exclusively. You’re free to use the fully equipped kitchen. Although there isn’t a television, there is fiber internet and a solid book collection, a hammock, sky chair and places to meditate.

Interaction with guests

Relaxed, limited. I tend to adapt pretty easily to what people need.

In the mountains:

Scenic drive: Take U.S. 287 to Loveland. Turn west onto U.S. 34 to Drake. From Drake meander around to Estes Park. Take the Peak to Peak past Allenspark, Colorado 7, and down the South St. Vrain.

Wild Basin in Allenspark.

Brainard Lake, make sure you go early to get parking. Lake Isabel is relatively easy and so beautiful. Then head to Nederland, ride the Carousel of Happiness, have pizza at Crosscut Pizzeria.

If you go up to Estes Park via Highway 7 through St. Vrain Canyon early enough, you could stop in Allenspark at Mountain Meadow Cafe for a wonderful breakfast. You can also take great pictures at St. Malo chapel (which unfortunately is not currently open to the public, but you can take photos from the road).

Rocky Mountain National Park outside of Estes Park (Fern Lake Pool is very low key, easy hike and beautiful).

The legendary Trail Ridge Road and 7 Highway (very scenic).

The historic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park has great tours.

Thompson canyon is scenic.

Walk around Lily Lake on Highway 7. Follow that with lunch at the Bald Pate Inn. Make reservations in advance.

Fort Collins area:

Poudre Canyon. It is a beautiful drive, great breakfast at Glen Echo Resort and fine drive back via county road 27 to Masonville (the general store is fun). A lot of time driving in the car, but wonderful scenery.

White water rafting down the Poudre River or picnic along the Poudre.

Colorado Springs area: Garden of the Gods, Olympic Training Center, Wind Cave, Pike's Peak.

Parker has a wonderful place. She made some delicious zucchini bread for us when we arrived. The house was clean and homey, with excellent access to the outdoors!

Comfortable, homey, quiet home. Parker is a gracious host who always had coffee ready in the morning and interesting conversation with the five people who stayed with her. Plus, she made our border collie feel right at home, with a dachshund playmate, dog bed, water bowl, treats, and head rubs. We enjoyed our stay very much, and would recommend Parker's home as a relaxing way station. In a world of cookie-cutter motels, this place was very unique.

Parker has a lovely, cozy space, and she is quite flexible to make sure you have a good stay. The location is great because it close to many things within 15-20 minute drive. Even though Parker stays at the property, you still will have plenty of space for yourself to spread out and hang out, as she leaves the entire main floor for her guests and shares the kitchen with her guests. Parker is extremely friendly, kind, caring, and accommodating. We had a great time and will return again.

I was in Denver after a long trip, and the bed was so heavenly with the best pillows. The best bed ever. Even better was the host. Truly so thoughtful and kind in every way. The home is in a very safe area, the checkin and out process was seamless, the room and bathroom was very clean, lots of fresh towels and toiletries, and again, the host is the loveliest :)
