Cortez house description

Anasazi Dreamin' Secluded w/ View

Welcome to Magic Rock. This unique house is set in the middle of 35 acres and is not visible from the road. You are one mile from Main St. Cortez, but feel like you are far from the city. This is the perfect place to do lots of interesting day trips of hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, hunting and exploring canyons for Anasazi ruins. You can see beautiful views of Mesa Verde and the La Platas Mountains while relaxing on the couch in the living room, or sitting out on the deck. The property has lots of historical and prehistorical sites of interest. Please feel free to explore around the property but do not take any pot shards, or other historical artifacts, or dig for them. We would like to keep it as untouched as possible for the next guests. The cold spring on the property was the first source of water for the town of Cortez. There are many Anasazi sites and some rock art on a large rock in the canyon, east of the house. Be careful getting down to see it. The eastern edge of the property runs down the middle of McElmo creek.

Magic Rock is within easy driving of Durango, Delores, Mancos, Mesa Verde, Canyon Lands, Four Corners Monument, Land of the Ancients, Telluride, Shiprock, Moab, the Delores and San Juan rivers, and lots of Anasazi points of interest. You could easily spend a week exploring all the local canyons. The Ute Mountain Casino is 11 miles away.

There is one bedroom with a queen size bed and then the sofa unfolds into a queen size bed. I've slept on the sofa bed and it is very comfortable. :^) The kitchen has stove, fridge, microwave, blender, toaster oven, crock pot, coffee grinder and coffee maker. Plenty of pots and pans for cooking and baking. Many spices are in the cupboard to the left of the stove. Lots of condiments in the refridgerator. If you enjoy drinking your wine out of crystal glasses or eating on fine china, this kitchen has what you need. There is a TV/DVD player that gets local station, also a TV in the bedroom. All the comforts of home!


This location is perfect for a stop over or extended stay.

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About: I live in Alaska, but plan to move to this property when I reitre. I am very into the historical as well as natural wonders of this area. I hope you enjoy your stay at Magic Rock as much as I do.

                  Why Cortez:
                  I've always been interested in archeology and native american history and culture specifically. My friends mother lives in the area and told me about this great property that was for sale. It has all the characteristics of the Hawkins Preserve(across the canyon) but is privately owed. I bought it site unseen and have not regretted my hasty action.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This property and the surrounding area are full of history, from the Anaszi Indians, to the first white settelers in the area. On this 35 acers you will find the original water supply for the town of Mitchell Springs, to the remains of a black smith shop, and Indian ruins. It is close to town approx. 1 mile to Main St. It is close to Sand Canyon which offers hiking, biking, and horse trails among the ruins of the Native Americans, want to go fishing, boating? no problem, not to brag but we are truley situated with in a hour of anything you want to do. Mesa Verde National Park can be seen from the door step of this home and is only 9 miles away,Historic Durango is a 1 hour drive, library, rec. center, parks, tennis courts are all in town here.
