Open for exchange
Exchange dates Duration
October 01, 2019 - December 31, 2020 2 weeks

We will consider all offers to exchange and reply quickly. We prefer 2-3 weeks in Europe but welcome shorter exchanges also in the US and Canada. We have exchanged eight times and loved each one!

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

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, many parks and playgrounds, an outdoor swimming pool, excellent recreation center with indoor pool, 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 concerts, rodeos, and Western activities in the summer nearby.

There are three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on two levels in our house, and four 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, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. There is wireless internet in the home.
