About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Mancos Colorado vacation rental home known as Vista View Ranch.

The peaceful setting and convenient location are just the beginning of the appointments of this wonderful, custom home sitting atop a hill on 37 acres with grand views of the La Plata Mountains, Mesa Verde National Park to the West and Sleeping Ute Mountain beyond Mesa Verde.

The spacious back deck and wrap-around porch not only offer these panoramic mountain views, but also the enjoyment of frequent Colorado blue skies, fresh Rocky Mountain air, and a comfortable spot to retreat to after the day’s activities.

The entrance and Visitor Center of Mesa Verde National Park is a twelve minute, 12 mile drive, and many options for area activities are found nearby (see driving times and distances below).

Inside, the three bedroom, three bath home guests will find well-appointed bedrooms, baths and kitchen along with a gas fireplace in the living room and surround sound audio throughout the house, plus a family room den on the upper level.

On the main, ground level, is the living room with gas fireplace and doors that open to the covered porch, the fully-equipped kitchen dining room and breakfast room. All three bedrooms are on this ground level including the master bedroom with king size bed, large private bath and french doors that open onto a deck with magnificent views of the La Plata Mountains to the north.

Two additional bedrooms on the main level with queen size beds share a full bath, and upstairs, a large family room den with queen sleeper sofa includes a flat screen TV and entertainment system with surround sound. A three-quarter bath services this bonus room and extra bedroom.

Adjacent to the kitchen are the formal dining room that seats six and breakfast room which seat four more diners. The laundry room with full size washer and dryer is also on the main level.

Outside, parking for vehicles and trailers is easy and convenient, so this is a good home for those who travel with ATVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles and other motorized toys. The master bedroom deck and wrap-around porch provide ample outdoor living spaces, and the views from this home are sure to leave a memorable impression.

Access to the hilltop home is directly off the paved highway, via 1/2 mile of well-maintained private road and driveway. This road is navigable by all passenger vehicles in summer, and some motorcycle riders find the hard-packed gravel fine to ride on at slow speeds. Garage parking for passenger cars, motorcycles and bicycle storage is available at the home. Please contact us should you need more details.

The home is located about 1/2 mile from the famous San Juan Scenic Skyway, including a section known as the Million Dollar Highway, which is an incredibly picturesque driving loop that connects Durango, Mancos, Mesa Verde National Park, Telluride, Ouray, Silverton and Purgatory Resort, as well as many fantastic trails for hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing and other Rocky Mountain adventures.

Visitors can enjoy the shops, restaurants, galleries and the Durango Train within about a 30 minute drive, with skiing and summer mountain activities at Purgatory Resort a beautifully scenic, one hour drive to the north.

Ski Hesperus, the little ski hill near Durango, is an excellent way to experience lighted, night skiing, and is only about a 12 minute drive towards Durango from this home.

Wildlife sightings are common at this comfortable and private home and there are a couple of hiking/biking trails within minutes from the home. Fall color viewing is spectacular from this home with open views to high mountain aspen forests.

The comfortable Vista View Ranch home offers much to the traveler seeking a truly special place to call home during their visit to Southwest Colorado. Contact us with any questions regarding your stay at this cozy and charming getaway.
