Sopris is very excited to be building in Longs Peak Farms. There are so many things to love about Berthoud Colorado, here are a few of our favorite reasons:
Downtown Berthoud: You can enjoy shopping, dining, coffee shops, and cultural outlets right on Main Street! Be sure to visit the Wildfire Community Arts Center, Little Thompson Valley Pioneer Museum, and the Berthoud Public Library. True to Colorado, the downtown area is also home to a microbrewery – Berthoud Brewing Company. Follow Berthoud’s Facebook Page and town website to checkout upcoming events.
Berthoud Inn: Included in Denver’s 5280 January 2018 issue of ‘Amazing Weekend Getaways!,’ this charming inn is a wonderful place the stay and to host an event. Visit their website at www.BerthoudInn.com.
Little Thompson Observatory: You don’t even need to leave town to explore the universe. Located at Berthoud High School, the Little Thompson Observatory hosts public events and encourages people of all ages to learn more about the universe. Check out their website at www.starkids.org.
Carter Lake Reservoir: Spend a day at nearby Carter Lake Reservoir. This beautiful reservoir is surrounded by public land. You can go sailing, fishing, water skiing, have a picnic and go camping. Learn more at: https://www.larimer.org/naturalresources/parks/carter-lake.
Rich History: Incorporated in 1888, what began as a settlement grew to include a handful of homes, a blacksmith shop, a mercantile store, a small grain elevator, and a log cabin that served as school and church for the community. The tiny settlement known as Little Thompson was renamed Berthoud in honor of Edward L. Berthoud, who had surveyed the rail route through the valley. We are proud of what continues today: a small, friendly community and vibrant lifestyle.
