About Rhonda and Dennis
Rhonda (The Artist) and Dennis (The Jokester) have lived in Durango and the Mesa Verde National Park region for 30 & 46 years respectively. We happily enjoy sharing the history and local stories that will enhance your stay and will steer you in the right direction to make the most of your stay. Dennis will show you where to find the best mountain bike and jeeping/4wheel trails while Rhonda can guide you to the best trails for touring ancient ruins and artistic sites to photograph, paint or journal. We love enjoying local music, dancing and creative special events and will help you find the best restaurants, shows and events to make your visit memorable. Private Plein Air Painting Classes with Rhonda (Award Winning Artist) as your guide and instructor are available with prior arrival arrangements and separate fees. A truly special way to experience beautiful Colorado and have special art you create and take home with you! *Rhonda's painting "Spirits' View - from inside Long House Ruin" was featured on Mesa Verde National Park's Centennial website in 2006. This painting was only possible with special permission from the Park and a Ranger Guide as a work specially created for the Centennial Celebrations. Rhonda's dream opportunity!

Why Rhonda and Dennis chose Mesa Verde National Park
Experience a beautiful relaxing stay with grand views of Mesa Verde National Park, Mancos Valley and the La Plata mountains. Enjoy the peacefulness of an adobe Southwest straw bale home that is complemented with fabulous contemporary southwest finishes. Stroll our southwest xeriscape gardens and enjoy the birds and bees while sipping your morning tea or coffee. Watch soaring eagles, hawks, ravens, deer, coyote and possibly a wild cat or bear pass by. After a long day of adventures relax on your private patio with panoramic views or join us on the veranda for cool beverages or hot cocoa in the winter. Luna Mesa is to enjoy Colorado year round!
What makes this Place unique
Grand vistas from every window and the expansive veranda. Unique modern straw-bale sustainable architecture with high steel post & beam ceilings, earthen clay walls, teak and cherry wood through out and southwest decor. The adobe walled xeriscape gardens with a relaxing Hot Tub will fill your soul with forever views and starry and luminous moon nights. 17 acres of privacy borders the Mesa Verde National Park. Note: We also have a private upstairs "Mesa Verde Vista" Queen Suite available in the Main Home which will accommodate two more people with an additional reservation. Total capacity on property is 6 at this time. (Families and singles welcome.)
