When many people hear of Berthoud Colorado, they often think of Berthoud Pass. Many skiers are familiar with this, but if you aren't a skier, you are missing a cute little town that I call my home town.
Located just 40 minutes north of Denver (depending on traffic of course), is the town of Berthoud. I grew up there and love it's atmosphere. Berthoud Estates is located west of town off Hwy 56 and County Road 23. Many homes are nestled on at least 1 acre sites and many different custom homes. But don't worry, when you hear custom, you can keep your wallet. Many homes are priced from the high $200's to the millions (depending on your needs of course). I grew up in a great ranch plan on 2 1/2 acres. Great horse property and lots of room to run. But all of the homes in this community are different and unique.
Berthoud has 1 high school, Berthoud High School, home of the Spartans. 2 Elementary Schools, Berthoud Elementary and Ivy Stockwell, and 1 middle school, Turner Middle School.
Hwy 287 used to run right through the town but in recent years, a bypass was built to preserve the small town nature of the community.
Next time you are traveling north of Denver, be sure to exit and visit this town, it's a wonderful place to grow up and I personally cherish my time here!
