There’s something extra special about staying in a bed & breakfast, maybe it’s sitting next to the warmth of the fireplace crackling in the living room, or cozying up underneath the fluffy duvet. Not to mention the smell of fresh bacon cooking in the kitchen when you wake up in the morning or the local feel of the historic home that overlooks the tree-lined Old Town avenue.

With 3 charming B&Bs and 2 Hostels for the social seeker (or large groups), this town has some fabulous choices for your trip.

The Edwards House was built in 1904 for Alfred Augustus Edwards who was involved in the area’s irrigation development and served as State Board of Agriculture, Larimer County Treasurer and city alderman. The Edwards family resided in the home until 1981 when it was sold to investors. In 2010, Curt and Nancy Richardson purchased the home with the intention of preserving this Old Town Fort Collins treasure. In 2014, they completed an extensive renovation that transformed this quaint house into a luxurious boutique inn, fusing modern elegance and Victorian charm while protecting its historical significance.
As a guest at the Edwards House Boutique Inn you will have a differentiated experience with their stunning décor, warm ambiance and personalized service. Enjoy superior accommodations in an intimate setting with a specially prepared gourmet breakfast each morning. Each of the guest rooms has a distinctive feel through the custom furniture and updated design. Not only that, but the front door is just steps away from the historic Old Town area, perfect for boutique shopping, dining and nightlife.
