  • A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth

    "My husband and I rented the Rainbow Casita for the month of July, and we were thrilled with our vacation home. The owners are amazing people, and they made sure that everything was perfect from start to finish. The house is spacious, well appointed, and filled with natural light, with a beautiful view from every window. We woke up to sunrises over the La Plata mountain range and ended each day with sunsets over Sleeping Ute Mountain, followed by amazing stargazing at night. Inside, the house is warm and friendly, with extremely comfortable beds, great sofas and chairs, and a lovely sound system. Everything is top notch: from the linens and quilts to the DKNY towels and Patagonia blankets to the fluffy pillows and beautiful rugs, all the appointments are elegant and make a unique contribution to the beauty of this vacation home. The kitchen is a chef's dream, with full sets of Oneida cookware, Henkel knives, and Fiestaware dishes, and the pantry is stocked with a variety of spices, condiments, soups, popcorn, coffees, and teas. Outside, the gas Weber grill made grilling a breeze. The owners have invested time and treasure into this beautiful home so that their guests have a cozy, comfortable, and relaxing experience at the Rainbow Casita. We were treated with great consideration and respect, and left with many happy memories. We hope to come back soon!"

  • Wonderful cabin near Dolores

    "We stayed here for 2 nights and were extremely pleased. It is a spacious and homey atmosphere with nice views of Mesa Verde National Park off in the distance. It's quiet and secluded, perfect for a weekend getaway. We had two dogs with us and they immensely enjoyed the huge fenced in backyard. You are close to Cortez, Mancos and Mesa Verde. What a great location! We definitely plan to come back for another visit."

  • 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."

  • Dream home away from home!

    "We would happily give this vacation rental 10 out of 5 if we could! The owners have thought of every conceivable convenience to make your stay one of exceptional comfort and relaxation. The chalet is extremely well appointed both inside and out with high quality fixtures and fittings, comfortable and tastefully appointed furnishings and lots of homely touches to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances you can think of - and is better designed than my kitchen at home, making it a joy to prepare home cooked meals. All the beds are comfortable with lovely linens and plenty of towels. We were only here for 3 nights but wish it could have been longer as the deer and hummingbirds were constantly dropping by right outside the deck area. We made the effort to visit the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde, and take a trip on the Durango & Silverton narrow gauge railway, but we actually wish we had spent longer relaxing at this fantastic property because it was so comfortable and homely. The cost of our stay here was actually much less than some hotels we have stayed at during our 3 week road trip around the South West states! Thank you Terry and Cindy for thinking of everything to make our stay so comfortable and memorable and we will be recommending your rental home to everyone we know! We sincerely hope that we can visit again one day."

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.
