Cortez cabin description

If you are looking for a place to rest your hearts and souls, our Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch & Vacation Rental will be the very right place for you. It is not a Bed & Breakfast, but a private home that we want to share our passion for history, archeology and the beauty of Southwestern Colorado.

Our goal at this 400 acres land is to respect & resture the history/culture, enrich the landand and build a self-sufficient lifestyle. We grow organic grass-fed beef/lamb, free-range chicken eggs and organic vegetables, you would enjoy our fresh farm eggs and vegetables (in season) when staying with us.

It is your home away from home in the southwest Colorado.

                      Our place 'Canyon of the Ancients Guest Ranch & Vacation Rental' is located at the peaceful and quaint McElmo Canyon. The road leads to the Ranch was called “Mormon Road” where the early Mormons migrated to Utah through the Canyon. It is also nicknamed “Robber’s Path”. People said that Butch Cassidy had hid his fortune in the Canyon, and old timers here knew that someone had discovered a bag of gold in the 30s on our property.

                      Over 5,000 documented archeological sites in the area waiting for you to explore. The Canyons of the Ancients National Monument is the key archeological landmark here at McElmo Canyon. A wonderful vineyard, Sutcliffe Vineyards is across the entrance of the Monument.

                      The Ranch is in close proximity to famous tourist attractions like Mesa Verde National Park, Durango, Telluride, Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, Canyons of the Ancients, and Hovenweep National Monument. It is a perfect place for your Southwestern Colorado adventure
