Situated in the urban locality of Longmont, Colorado, Countrywood Inn & RV Park offers 20 RV sites and 10 motel rooms for both short-term and long-term stays. The RV sites vary in terms of size, and the park's rates are categorized as small, medium, large, extra-large, and patio sites. Vehicles that range from small truck campers to RVs up to 38 feet can be accommodated at Countrywood Inn & RV Park. The present manager of the establishment, Mindy, strives to create a community-oriented atmosphere by arranging barbeques and other similar small events for visitors to attend. Notably, Countrywood Inn & RV Park is centrally located among several cities in Colorado, with a few of the most prominent being Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. Mindy encourages those who stay at the park to explore these cities. She also mentions that a relatively high quantity of attractions, restaurants, and shops encompass the property.
Countrywood Inn & RV Park is located in the heart of Longmont, Colorado. With a total of 20 RV spots and 10 motel rooms, guests have a variety of options to choose from. The RV sites offer full hookups, including 30- and 50-amp services, although pull-throughs are not available for rigs over 40 feet. The manager of the park, Mindy, notes that "there are no age restrictions for RVs as long as they are registered and insured." Each RV spot features amenities such as free Wi-Fi and cable, and guests have access to two showers, two bathrooms with showers, and a coin-operated laundry room over the course of their stay. With regard to the amenities that the motel rooms are equipped with, every room offers cable TV and Wi-Fi access, akin to the RV sites, as well as air conditioning, refrigerators, microwaves, and private bathrooms; some rooms contain kitchenettes or double beds. The property features a patio with barbecue grills that are open to both motel occupants and RV park visitors.
Occupying approximately one acre of land, the RV park is amidst several businesses in a fairly urban area. While the park itself does not offer extensive on-site attractions, it is located near a number of draws for tourism, namely Estes Park near Rocky Mountain National Park and a few fishing ponds, lakes, reservoirs, and rivers. For those who enjoy golfing, the City of Longmont Sunset Golf Course can be found in relatively close proximity to the park. Additionally, the park is about an hour away from Denver, where guests can explore a wide range of attractions, including museums and national parks. Other cities and towns such as Niwot, Gunbarrel, Boulder, Lyons, Docono, Frederick, Berthoud, Firestone, and Fort Collins can be found within the vicinity as well. Countrywood Inn & RV Park is located less than an hour's drive away from downtown Denver where people can explore a range of shops and restaurants. For nearby dining recommendations, the manager of Countrywood Inn & RV Park, Mindy, suggests trying Cheba Hut, Morrison's, and Pinocchio's restaurants.
While there are no specific outdoor amenities such as picnic tables or firepits, Countrywood Inn & RV Park strives to foster a sense of community by periodically hosting barbecues and events; for example, the establishment recently held a community yard sale. Mindy, the manager, aims to create a welcoming atmosphere for guests and encourages social engagement through these gatherings. One long-term visitor's remarks in a review emphasized this atmosphere that Mindy intends to create, as they stated, "Throughout the last couple of years, this little park has been home. The neighbors are nice, and nobody really bothers anybody. It's a very quiet little area in the middle of Longmont." Another previous patron said, "Bathrooms, showers & laundry on site. Very clean. We love it!" Mindy voices her observations of those who stay at the park, saying, "Everybody watches out for everybody else, and we all get along," which she believes further enhances the sense of community within the park.
People of all ages visit the property, according to Mindy, although she also mentions that the current demographic mainly consists of adults. A significant percentage of guests are repeat visitors, Mindy says. The park operates year-round, with its busiest season typically occurring from the end of May through the end of summer.
In an effort to emulate a community-oriented and welcoming atmosphere to a greater extent, a few policies are implemented that everyone should take note of during their stay. Countrywood Inn & RV Park is a pet-friendly establishment, and there are no breed or size restrictions for dogs; however, pets must be kept outside of the RVs, and they cannot be tied up. With the intent to maintain a clean environment, smoking is prohibited within all buildings, including motel rooms and RVs. Guests are expected to smoke in designated outdoor areas. Furthermore, the park observes quiet hours from 9:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. During this time, everyone is required to keep noise to a minimum out of consideration for those hoping to have a restful night in a quiet environment. While the park tends to attract mainly adult guests, families with children are also welcome, as there are no specific age restrictions.
The present owner of Countrywood Inn & RV Park has had ownership over the business for nearly 22 years, as reported by the manager, Mindy. While the exact history of the park as an RV facility is unclear to Mindy, she comments that the building on the premises—which currently serves as a motel where guests can occupy rooms—dates back to 1921 and has been operating as a motel for many years. The property has undergone a few updates over the course of its existence. Upon the departure of long-term patrons who were staying in the motel accommodations, the room that they previously stayed in then goes under renovation and remodeling. The renovations involve replacing carpets and checking and replacing appliances as needed. Future plans for the property mainly focus on continued remodeling rather than expanding the number of sites.
