Staying at Katherine's was my first Airbnb experience, and Katherine made it a wonderful experience. Her place is very clean, welcoming, and unexpectedly spacious. I came to Ft. Collins to see my adult kids, and the space allowed us a place to comfortably relax and enjoy each other's company. I also work as a freelancer, and there was plenty of room to work on my computer. I would highly recommend staying here, and look forward to a return visit!

Katharine was not only a great host, but her place was very cozy and comfortable for my father and I! Communication was excellent and Katharine was ready to help with anything if we were to need it. We loved our stay and will definitely book Katharine again in the future. Thank you!

A quiet comfortable homey place to stay in a family neighborhood. The owner Kate is very accommodating but allows her guests their privacy. Easy access to all the attractions and sites in the Fort Collins s area.

Katherine was very responsive to our concerns during our stay. It was a real bargain, but you get what you pay for. If you don't mind hearing the upstairs occupants move around, you should have no problem with this residence. Very spacious.

Katharine was a great host she even brought us some movies and board games that she had! Great place to stay and an even greater host (and dog)!

My wife and I had to find a place to stay for about 10 days after our honeymoon before our apartment lease started. This place was absolutely a perfect fit! Katharine and her family were very warm and welcoming. We had all the amenities of home available (full kitchen with sink, stove, oven, fridge, microwave), it had a private entrance, and we felt very safe. It was clean, well maintained, and Katharine fixed any minor issues very quickly. Katharine was great at communicating with us whenever we needed something or she had questions as well. My wife and I truly had a great experience, and are very thankful for the hospitality. I would highly recommend this to anyone, both locally or visiting from out of town.

Interaction with guests

This is our year-round home so we're available to guests for questions, suggestions, supplies and company! World traveling, multicultural family of 6 including a dog & a couple cats live upstairs. With 4 kids we can't promise it will always be quiet but we can promise a friendly, welcoming environment!

About Katharine

I’m a bit of a nerd who loves Pinterest, road trips, chickens and board games. My hair is crazy curly and I proudly identify as multiracial. I’m a widow doing my best to raise two young men; the oldest who attends CSU, and a tween who loves video games and animals. This summer I became engaged to John and his two sons ages 10 and 8. We look forward to planning our wedding next year in my home state of Maine. John hails from nearby Denver but with a military background and Taiwanese roots, he's a world traveler. He works at CSU as well and is known locally as the #1 dad. Along with our dog Tai Li and cats, Jasper and Jade, its a full house!

I have worked at CSU for a little more than 10 years, mostly with international and multicultural students. Before coming to CSU and doing my Masters, I worked as a teacher and track coach in k-12 schools. I graduated high school here in Fort Collins from Poudre High School then earned my two bachelor’s degrees in International Affairs/Political Science and French from the University of Maine. I’ve studied abroad twice in France and Canada and traveled to Nicaragua, Mexico and several countries in Europe.

As a host, consider me your go-to person for Fort Collins and CSU guidance for everything you need. We're a friendly, busy, laid-back household and we're glad to have you as our guest.

As guests ourselves, we love learning about you and your town but are also happy to keep out of the way and explore on our own. We'll leave the place just as we found it, with our world a little happier since you let us in yours:)
