Comfortable home in northern Colorado just one hour's drive from Rocky Mountain National Park, Denver and Cheyenne, Wyoming

Our home is furnished with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We enjoy spending time in our backyard garden, eating most meals outdoors when the weather is good. We also have a vegetable garden you are welcome to enjoy during your stay.

Our town of 20,000 people is a safe and friendly community full of outdoor activity opportunities. Our views of the Front Range of the Rockies are superb, and we are just an hour from Denver International Airport. Colorado is home to seven national parks plus many state parks, lakes, and recreation areas.

Within Windsor there are miles of bicycle and walking trails, an outdoor swimming pool, excellent recreation center with indoor pool, parks, golf courses and a lake with canoes, kayaks and paddle boats to rent in the summer. The town also has a craft brewery, two supermarkets, restaurants and all necessary businesses and services. In summer there are lakeside concerts and farmers' markets.

By driving one-half hour, you can be in Fort Collins and Greeley (two university cities), and Loveland (a town filled with galleries and outdoor sculpture gardens).
.
A one-hour drive takes you to beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park, the capital city of Denver, the unique Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Boulder, Cheyenne, Wyoming, and a bison ranch.

There are three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on two levels in our house, and three adult bicycles for use. Our car is available for use also (Toyota RAV4 SUV, automatic shift, seats five). No pet care is required. All three bedrooms are on the second floor. The kitchen is furnished with all appliances, microwave, washing machine and dryer. There is wireless internet in the home.

About Our Family

We have loved every minute of our five house exchanges and look forward to more. We are an active retired couple with time and energy to explore! We have two adult daughters who sometimes join us for part of our exchanges. We welcome your friends and family in our home, too.

Lifestyle

We enjoy bicycling, walking and hiking, tent camping, vegetable and flower gardening, attending concerts and plays, reading, visiting museums, community festivals and meeting people from other countries and cultures. We keep current on world affairs and try to maintain an openness to new learning experiences and places.
