  • McElmo Canyon Retreat

    "This was our second stay at the Bell property in McElmo Canyon. The views offered from the porch of the red rock canyon are spectacular. There is very little light to compete with the night sky full of stars. The accommodations are comfortable and clean. This unique property provides a very private retreat in a remote secluded location."

  • Things to Do with a Family in Summer

    "We stayed with 2 young kids in August. The cabin and grounds were fun for the kids but we also used it as a base for the following activities: 1) Durango-Silverton Railroad. It’s about 30 minutes away. We took the 9:30 bus up and the 1:45 train back and it worked well. Make sure to reserve the left side of the train when traveling to Durango from Silverton as the view is better. Finished the day with dinner at the Bar D Chuckwagon in Durango which had great music and a fun stuff for the kids. 2) Rimrock Outfitters Horse Back Riding. Rimrock Outfitters is located near the cabin. The hour ride around the lake reminded me of every cowboy movie I’ve ever seen, it was so picture perfect. The owners were super friendly and old west. 3) Mesa Verde. The national park is about 15 minutes from the cabin. To get all the way to Cliff Palace in the Park from the cabin was about an hour. We headed over in the afternoon, saw the museum and Spruce Tree House, and then did the twilight tour at Cliff Palace (reserved a month in advance). All excellent. 4) Hiking the La Plata Mountains. Near Rimrock Outfitters (and near the cabin) the county road continues on up into the Las Plata Mountains. The road was dirt (but easy compared to the Ouray area) and we drove up about 20 minutes above Rimrock and went for a fantastic hike. We found a well-marked trail that was also used for horses. There were free grazing cattle, wild flowers, and views. 5) Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores. This museum was about 30 minutes away and had fun stuff for the kids. There was also an archaeological site near the museum but it was about a ½ mile hike and the kids were tired so we didn't do it. 6) Star Gazing. We took along a telescope and there was a nice spot next to the cabin for viewing the night sky."

  • Beautiful home -family of four loved it and location to areas National Parks.

    "Mesa Verde cliff dwellings was our primary focus when searching for a house. Location was good but the house and offerings were the icing on the cake. Hot tub after hiking was fantastic. Very clean and modern. Two bedrooms and an extra HIGH QUALITY self inflating/deflating mattress was great with teenage kids. Patios and tables galore.. more than we could use in a few days. Separate observation deck for night sky viewing was nice. Many restaurants and grocery in town nearby. Many good destinations close by for day tripping and using as a base camp for a week."

Mancos Travel Tips

Vacation at the Cornerstone of the Ancient Americas at the Mancos Cabins

In what used to undoubtedly be a thriving, verdant climate are a collection of ancient human wonders commonly referred to as 'Mesa Verde,' or 'green table' in English. Like much of the national parks on the southwest side of Colorado, the climate at Mesa Verde is fairly dry and arid, but the history is vibrant as ever. With Mesa Verde vacation rentals, you can spend your next vacation in one of the beautiful Mancos cabins and rest in luxury at the cusp of Native American civilization.

Have Fun on Your Vacation at Mesa Verde, and Learn Something Too

At the Mancos cabins, you will be near the beautiful and expansive Mesa Verde National Park. The park is known for the cities carved into solid rock, some of which date back to the early 12th century. Mancos lodging is at once historic and modern, insofar as it offers all of the desirable modern amenities without sacrificing its balance and interface with the surrounding climate and wildlife. When you and your family or friends stay in the Mancos lodging, you can enjoy the best of both worlds (at an affordable price).

Get Back in Touch With Nature in Mancos, Colorado

Mancos, Colorado is located on the southwestern edge of the San Juan National Forest, just a few minutes between Mesa Verde and the three million acres of undisturbed Colorado wildlife. For the vacationers looking for something less hustling and bustling than a coastal or an urban destination, but still wanting to enjoy modern vacationing amenities, the Mancos cabins are a perfect compromise. They're perfect for families, friends and anyone looking for an American adventure.
