Relax with heartfelt comfort in our bright, spacious 2 bedroom garden level suite at our country home situated only 5 miles from Old Town. Enjoy making your home-cooked breakfast then perhaps taking a stroll through the gardens while viewing our chickens, open vistas and the scenic foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Our fully finished garden level suite (the bottom half of our home, the finished basement) is your living space that includes 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchenette, dining table and lounge: Relax in one of two reclining loveseats in front of the large screen TV, ideal for watching DVD's, streaming Netflix, AmazonPrime or viewing DISH satellite television after a fun day of exploring Northern Colorado and Old Town.
Two bedrooms with queen beds ideally accommodates 1-2 guests or up to two couples. All in your party share the bathroom together which offers shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer. All are bright, cheerful, clean, quiet and comfortable. ***NOTE: if your party consists of 2 guests needing to use separate bedrooms, the extra person charge of $25/night will be manually applied after instant booking.***
Your kitchette's mini fridge/freezer is stocked with bagels, butter, juice, granola, jam, coffee, teas and creamer for your self-serve breakfast. We can easily accommodate vegan and gluten free diets -- let us know prior to your arrival. Coffee pot, electric tea kettle, oversized toaster oven, induction hot plates with cookware, crockpot and all dishes/ utensils are provided for you.
***Please note: the view of the mountains is in front of our home to the west; your suite's view is to the south & east. We encourage our guests to sit in our many outdoor areas to enjoy viewing our lovely mountain range...the garden seating is what we created it for--- and if we're available, we welcome you to visit with us upstairs where you can also see the view from inside our home...we enjoy occasional visits with our guests!
Our Garden level Suite's entrance is from the back patio/ studio door where Teresa has a very part-time private hair salon on site & works 11:30am to 3 pm on Tuesday's & Wednesday's. Salon clients will need occasional access to the suite's bathroom within those times--they are very courteous, respectful and clean and we appreciate our guests to show the same consideration. On the other days, this studio space is a thriving art studio. The reception area is where we advise to remove and store your outside shoes before entering the home. Shoe covers and/or slippers are provided if you forget to bring your own dedicated house slippers.
The kitchenette is just outside your room and equipped with 2 induction hot plates, microwave, large toaster oven, stocked mini-fridge/freezer, hot water kettle with teas and ground coffee with a drip coffee pot.
Interaction with guests
We enjoy meeting fellow travelers! Depending on your schedule, we can have long talks or short chats. We honor your privacy and interact depending on whatever is most comfortable for you.
Other things to note
***Reminder: if your party consists of 2 guests needing to use separate bedrooms, the extra person charge of $25/night will be manually applied after instant booking where you will receive an Airbnb notification from us to accept the adjusted rate accordingly.***
We have 3 indoor/outdoor very friendly cats that must stay inside at night beginning at dusk. We have successfully kept the "Aloha" guest room completely cat-free for years to accommodate for those who are highly allergic. There is a pet gate to confine our cats in our portion of the house at all times, making your Suite an animal-free environment.
Kindly remember this is our home, not a hotel; please be respectful, courteous and benevolent to all those in our home and property. Please no recreational drug use or excessive amounts of alcohol during your stay with us.
We ask that you remove your shoes upon entering the house or bring your dedicated house shoes/slippers if needed! (You can also use slippers provided for salon clients.) Park next to the greenhouse in front of your walkway to your suite, making sure to keep clear of the gravel roundabout so that exit from the property isn't blocked.
Please, no one enters into our fenced pasture or chicken yards...stay on your side of the fence where you can safely observe them, for the benefit of all concerned.
***Reminder NOTE: if your party consists of 2 guests needing to use separate bedrooms, the extra person charge of $25/night will be applied after Instant Book.
Kindly let us know after booking and for sure prior to arrival.
Fort Collins offers so many restaurants and activities. We hope you will take advantage of and enjoy our delightful town, then come home to a comforting, tranquil, nurturing space in the country for a good night's rest. As a form of "damage control" with our own animal menagerie, sadly, no guest pets are permitted.
We first used Airbnb in the Spring of 2015 for our month long adventure to New Zealand. Our vacation there was made so much more fulfilling and heartfelt all because of our experience with each delightful Airbnb host! After returning home, we were inspired and decided to also host fellow travelers at our farm beginning mid-April 2015.
Married since 1993, we are two "mature" (only in years) strict vegetarian travelers who love to get to know the people and sights of any given area. We are quiet non-smokers who don't drink very much, maybe have a beer sometimes...but don't be misled; we are fairly outgoing and enjoy a good hearty laugh!
We own a farm animal haven in Northern Colorado, USA, "Beakon Hill Farm", so we're used to going to bed fairly early (around 10ish) and wake up with the light of dawn most days....we've got critters who yell at us for their breakfasts. :-)
We look forward to visiting with you in your beautiful area of the world or in our home and sharing stories. We've had the good fortune to have traveled to many parts of the planet and meet wonderful people while at various locations around the world and also in our home town.
Teresa & Randy Redmond-Ott
