Excellent vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is fabulous- spacious and comfortable. The owners have taken great care in every detail to make your stay comfortable and to make you feel welcome. Well stocked kitchen including cooking supplies, coffee and tea, filtered drinking water. Direct tv and an abundance of movies and PlayStation games for cozy nights. Best of all - the location is FANTASTIC! Right next to a state park, less than a mile to San Juan National forest, 6 miles to Mesa Verde... sooo many things to do in the area, this house is perfectly situated within easy reach BUT it feels completely out of the way. It's perfect!!

Owner's Response: Jessica, So glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay and found everything you needed at the house. Also, glad that you took the time to explore what is so close to our house! One of the things that we hear very often from guests is that they wish they would have stayed an extra day or two to stay close and explore the lake and the National Forest hiking trails. Thank you again.

Beautiful home in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at this beautiful home. The home was very clean and it was epuipped with everything we needed. Deer were in the yard each morning and evening. I wish we could have stayed much longer!

Excellent base camp for adventure

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, about 10 miles from Mesa Verde, just over 2 hours from Moab, home of Arches and Canyonlands. Near Durango for the railroad to Silverton and rafting on the Animus. Deer come to visit in the evening. Plenty of space for six adult sized people. Well stocked kitchen, most every spice you would need.

We had a great experience.

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation and found our home comfortable. We do feel it is a great base camp for so many sights, no need to up and move around! Thank you!

We loved it so much the first time, we came back!

  • 5 of 5

The GGs, as we call ourselves, stayed here last year and loved it so much we chose it for our retreat again this year.

We love everything about this home - well, except, to be honest, the stairs, as we all have bad knees but we made it just fine.

This home provides everything you need for a comfortable stay and then some.

Want to sit outside under the Colorado stars by the firepit? Don't miss this.

Drive around the area and see what SW Colorado is famous for. You will not be disappointed.

And don't worry if you forgot the olive oil or dill. It's there in the pantry. As is the coffee. Yum.

Thanks, again, Terry and Cindy - we had a wonderful time!
