Just like staying with friends

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Dan and Norma. They made us feel very welcome and included all the little amenities that made our stay very comfortable. The welcome basket of goodies was a real special treat! We really enjoyed visiting Mesa Verde and the Arches National Park.

Wonderful Farm House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time. The guest house was well appointed and very comfortable. Dan and Norma were extremely warm when greeting us upon our arrival and gave us a friendly wave good bye when we left. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to see the local culture of Cortez Colorado.

Dan and Norma, Thanks again.

Amazing get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well equipped, very clean, and so comfortable it seems like home. The owners add a special touch. They are friendly, great to visit with, yet respect your privacy. And as an extra- the views and setting are amazing!

Enjoyed Every Moment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our two children (13, 12) enjoyed every moment we spent at the cabin. Only a short drive from Cortez (grocery stores, restaurants, fun stores, gas stations), it felt you were alone in the middle of nowhere... which is a good thing! The kids liked having the TV and internet, but it really was the best place to disconnect from the craziness of life! Enjoyed feeding the horses, watching/listening to the cows, talking long walks, hanging out on the balcony to watch sunsets, storms and tons of stars at night! Great place to take amazing pics! Norma and Dan were great to deal with and so very friendly....such great hosts, made us feel at home! The kids enjoyed their three dogs too! Cabin had everything a family would need! Loved the location, central to everything we wanted to see (Mesa Verde, Four Corners, etc.). The 5-star reviews are real, totally agree with all the positive feedback everyone has left. Stay here, you will love it... it does feel like a little slice of heaven!

About Dan Duncan, property owner

Dan grew up 7 miles northwest of current home. He is a retired pilot, who flew so he could farm and ranch. Norma just retired (5/2016) after 31 years of teaching. We have lived here 16 years, lived in Montana for 12 years and Las Vegas for 11 years.

Dan Duncan, property owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dan Duncan, property owner chose Yellow Jacket

This home was originally built because our son was an officer in the Marine Corps and it was his home when he came home for extended times. He is now located in Cortez, CO. Also, our extended family and friends who come to stay, enjoy the privacy.

We are centrally located to many of the main attractions in Southwest Colorado. The land we are located on have a view of the Sleeping Ute Mountain, the La Plata range, Blue Mountains and Lizzard Head.

Horse boarding facilities are available.

What makes this cabin unique

You will love the view, solitude, and the stars at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay here at your cozy cabin! Everything inside the cabin was perfect for our three nights.

We also enjoyed the amazing views and were able to get some great photos including the Milky Way!*

Our only regret is that our stay was not long enough!

It was so nice meeting both of you, such a gem you have here!
