About the Property

If traveling with horses we have a large fenced in field for an additional fee

Nestled in the beautiful Mancos valley sits a luxurious private retreat only 4 miles from Mesa Verde National Park. This is a stunning, newly constructed guest house located on 5 acres beside a small pond where an endless flow of colorful birds and wildlife will keep you mesmerized. Relax on your private deck with commanding views of Mesa Verde, the Mancos Valley and the San Juan Mountains. At night the shooting stars seem so close that you feel you can touch them. Luxury appointments accompany your bed and bath with a flex room to accommodate up to four people. This guest home features a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and a welcoming comfortable lounge area with contemporary but cozy furniture. New washer and dryer are at your disposal as well as barbecue grill, and satellite TV.
Mesa Verde National Park is not only in view, it's just a 10 minute drive away. The Anasazi Heritage Center, Hovenweep National Monument, Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and Canyon of the Ancients, are all in the general area, rich with ancient ruins. Visit the local Historic Old West Town of Mancos, where the West still lives. Mancos boasts its fine restaurants, numerous art galleries, fabulous locally roasted Farenheit coffee, and natural food store. A horse drawn carriage ride, horseback riding, milking a cow, are part of the western heritage apparent in this darling town especially when a cattle drive moves thru with it’s local cowboys.
Thousands of nearby acres of public BLM lands are available for, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding along with hundreds of miles of mountain trials for off-road adventures. Nearby reservoirs offer boating and fishing, and the Animas, San Juan and Dolores Rivers are great for rafting and trout fishing. Local guides are available.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My name is Rena Wilson, I am a 63 year old retired interior designer, & chef. I moved to Mancos from Michigan 20 years ago. I recently sold my restaurant, and continue to run the art gallery within 'Olio' a 5 star downtown Mancos restaurant. I am also an artist, horsewoman, I love to play golf, tennis, fish, hike, bike, & ski. Colorado is the place enjoy many outdoor activities that keeps us all in adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Mancos, CO, USA:
I built on this particular property because my 85 year old father lives in his home farther back on the property and it gives me a chance to visit him regularly when I check people in and out.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Because my father creates a wonderful garden each summer fresh vegetables are a treat for guests. This Cottages sits in a rural setting but not far from town, mountains, Mesa Verde, fishing, horseback riding, and biking right off of the property. This cottage is brand new with high end finishes.
