Nancy and Allen are excellent hosts. The property was stunning and so very relaxing for our family. The private space had everything we could have possibly needed. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were divine. So much nicer than an expensive hotel.
Thanks Nancy and Allen. We spent a very pleasant evening enjoying the view from the patio! The accommodations were perfect for our group of six. The breakfast goodies were an added treat!
Had a great stay with Nancy and Allen! We had a girls weekend and had an amazing time in Loveland. Perfect location to Rocky Mountain National Park and Fort Collins. My favorite area was the views from the house and the devil's backbone trail behind the house is phenomenal.
Nancy and Allen Moulton are top notch hosts with a beautiful, clean, and comfortable home. Our stay was full of peace and rest with spectacular views at the foothills of the Rockies. Not a single disappointment -- only pleasure and joy.
Nancy and Allen were incredible hosts and their home was beautiful. The location is perfect for hiking along Devil's Backbone and is a short and scenic drive from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. We only stayed for one evening on our route to Montana and we felt welcome and certainly comfortable taking in the wonderful view of the Rockies from our rooms and private patio. I highly recommend staying with Nancy and Allen if you are planning on staying north of Denver. The living area is spacious with luxurious furnishings and is a great stopping point for travelers or even a destination for families/friends looking to explore the wonderful natural attractions of Colorado.
Allen and Nancy are phenomenal. We had the best experience staying at their home in Loveland. Nancy had the whole downstairs set up or us with breakfast, orange juice, muffins, etc. They were very hospitable and helpful throughout the week. Allen helped us know where to explore Rocky Mtn Natl Park and even gave us some maps and took notes on them to direct us. They were very considerate of our space. If you needed a lot of privacy they will definitely give it, but the reality is once you meet them you won't want much privacy. You will want to spend as much time with them as you can because they are awesome people. One morning we had breakfast and coffee with them and talked with them for a couple of hours. One afternoon Allen played cornhole with us while we grilled (they left the gas grill out for us). Allen even brought out the doon buggy and four wheeler for us to play on not to mention the train he built that is Disney themed.
We couldn't give a high enough review for Allen and Nancy. Their home is stunningly beautiful, they are beautiful people, and it was an awesome experience getting to stay with them. If you ever get the opportunity, go! You won't be disappointed.
Nancy and Allen were very friendly and hospitable hosts. Their home is absolutely beautiful and the views are visually stunning. They provided us with everything we needed, from extremely comfortable beds to breakfast items to board games. Nancy was great at communicating with us throughout the entire process. I highly recommend staying here if you're ever in the area. They also have a very adorable dog that you will probably see around the property on occasion.
