Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley is hosting a time-honored event, now approaching its 56th year of holiday magic. The Gift of Home Tour is a beautiful Longmont holiday tradition. With a focus on charitable giving, making memories, and supporting local businesses, The Gift of Home Tour is Colorado's largest self-guided holiday home tour. Homes will be “dressed up” for the holidays by decorators and decor stores, all with their own theme. The homes will feature items for sale and decorating ideas to get you ready for the holidays.
Tour Dates & Times - December 2022
December 1: Opening Night Party 6-9pm
December 1: Opening Night Home Tour 6-10pm
December 2: Home Tour 1pm-7pm
December 3: Home Tour 9am-3pm
The opening night party is expected to sell out! St. Vrain Habitat is proud to be the host and beneficiary of the 2022 Gift of Home Tour. In 2020, Longmont Meals on Wheels graciously passed ownership of this event to Habitat. A holiday home tour flows beautifully with the mission and work of Habitat for Humanity.

About Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain
Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley (St. Vrain Habitat) is dedicated to providing decent, affordable homeownership for working families in the St. Vrain Valley and Estes Valley School Districts. Established in 1988, Habitat's mission is 'Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.' At Habitat, our vision is a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live.
Work That Matters
For 34+ years, St. Vrain Habitat has partnered with families in our community to help them achieve the dream of owning a home. One in 7 Colorado families pays more than half their income on housing. Every month families are forced to make tough decisions about what they can afford: rent, food, child care, transportation, or health care. All Habitat homeowners complete a rigorous application process where they demonstrate a clear need for housing, the ability to pay a mortgage, and a willingness to partner through 'sweat equity' hours and preparedness classes. Through Habitat, families achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. The long-term impacts of homeownership include: enhanced wellbeing, improved educational outcomes, improved health, safer neighborhoods, increased safety, and reduced need for public assistance.

Loveland has the holiday spirit and with our luke-warm start to winter, many homes spent extra effort putting up extravagant lights this year!

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park is arguably one of the most beautiful hotels in Colorado. Set against a scenic backdrop, every photo of this historic hotel is simply stunning.
And now you can stay at the Stanley for just $89 a night! This special offer from the Stanley is only available for 2 days!
My Big Day just purchased our room! We can't wait to take the scenic drive up the canyon to Estes Park and spend some money at the local businesses in Estes.
After the devastating floods, all Estes Park businesses could really use some visitors!
Come join us up in Estes Park for some winter fun!
