12 Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

Wherever you are in Northern Colorado, you can find a view of our beautiful surroundings — whether it’s the Rocky Mountains, sweeping valleys or clean cityscapes. But imagine having one of those breathtaking views right on your own patio! We found the best homes in the area to help you out with those daydreams.

There are a few with lakeside lounges and some with backyards for dinner parties, but every home on this list has a view that will keep you around until sundown. Sit back and enjoy the scenery as we tour some of the most impressive homes with a view in Northern Colorado.


Rocky Mountain Views From Every Angle

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

This Fort Collins home is surrounded by 35 acres of wildlife, horse property and Rocky Mountain views. The relaxing deck and enclosed sunroom provide space to appreciate the view year round. We especially love the “barn turned family home” feel! A barn door entrance and white picket fence just add to its charm.


Pond and Waterfall Backyard Getaway

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

A little closer to town, this Loveland home sits on three acres with a pond, patio and garden landscape in the backyard. Though this home is closer to its neighbors than others on this list, it has three acres of foothill views! The greenery and pond space provide additional privacy, peace and relaxation.


Luxury on Land

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

This luxury home has five acres to roam when you’re not swooning over the interior. During the winter months you can hibernate in the theater room, and during these late summer evenings you can grab a glass of wine from the cellar and enjoy your spectacular view from the upstairs or downstairs patio.


Modern Elegance and Backyard Barbecues  

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

This elegant home will make you feel like you’re in paradise. The interior is modern, bright and luxurious, while the backyard boasts one of the most beautiful patios in the area, complete with a built in kitchenette and grill. Need more room for getting away from it all? This home also comes with a 1,800 square foot outbuilding with a loft, which can be used for a shop, a kid space or a craft room.


A Horse Lover’s Dream

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

This home offers so many great areas for relaxation, including its outdoor fire pit, gazebo, patio and garden benches. This home even features a three-stall horse stable on its 3.2 acre lot! The gardens and greenery around the home are beautifully landscaped so you can appreciate it from every angle.


Estes Park Escape

Northern Colorado Retreats

Estes Park is already one of the most beautiful places in the state and this mountain home allows you to appreciate it with a bird’s eye view! With main level and upper level patios, you can take in the fresh Rocky Mountain air and the view of the valley below from your very own lodge escape.


An Every Season Getaway

Northern Colorado Retreats

This custom home sits on 13.8 wide-open acres of land. In the summer months you’ll enjoy the wrap around porch where you can admire the mature trees, manicured landscaping and views of Longs Peak. During winter months, you can appreciate the view while cozying up in front of the red brick fireplace inside the master bedroom!



Seclusion Meets Entertainment

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

Not only is this Loveland home secluded, mature trees covering the land give it even more privacy and charm. You can admire the view from one of three covered patios or you can escape it all in the basement playroom — complete with pool table, kitchenette and bar!


Mountain Lodge in the Sky

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

A few miles north of Loveland, this mountain home is nestled in the trees. From one side of the wrap around porch you can be immersed in the forest landscape and admire the wildlife, and from the other you can sit above everything with a view of the valley below.


Farmhouse in a Wonderland

Northern Colorado Retreats

This charming home reminds us of a fairytale farmhouse. The gravel drive is surrounded by trees as well as the yard and patio — allowing complete privacy and a relaxing getaway. Many of the trees on the land are fruit bearing, so you’ll be surrounded by flowering trees in the spring and fruit in the summer. Later in the year, you can watch the area become a winter wonderland from the enclosed sunroom.


Natural Lighting and Views for Miles

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

We love this home for a few reasons which pair nicely with our Colorado landscape. The huge covered patio has a 9 acre view of the surrounding land and scenery, one you will enjoy all summer long. Then, the beautifully arched entryway with big windows helps bring that Colorado sunshine inside, allowing you to fully enjoy our 300+ days of sunshine a year!


Colorado Living on the Lake

Northern Colorado Secluded Retreats

With a southwestern interior, two acres of beautiful landscaping, and lake access to Trappers Lake, this home is the epitome of Colorado living. You can fish is the warm months, ice skate in the cold months and appreciate the views all year round! The built-in fireplace next to the lake will be your new summer night retreat.
