About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

This laid-back, river-view, three-bedroom Mancos vacation rental is a wonderful home-base for a scenic southwestern Colorado adventure for up to 12 guests. With amenities like WiFi, a washer and dryer, and a full kitchen for creating memorable vacation meals, you'll feel right at home here!

Form this location, you're less than 12 miles from Mesa Verde National Park - site of over 5,000 archaeological sites preserving the material culture of the region's Ancestral Pueblo people, as well as hiking trails, car tours, and a large interpretive center. And the cute and quirky college town of Durango is just 37 miles east for galleries, shops, and many restaurant options from tacos to fine dining.

Other regional attractions near this unique western town include the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Train, Mancos State Park, and the San Juan National Forest. In winter, skiing and snowboarding are 57 miles north at Purgatory, Durango Mountain Resort.

When you aren't out exploring this rugged area near the San Juan Mountains, this Durango Wilderness Retreat provides a relaxing Mancos getaway with views of the Mancos River and Echo Basin from the deck, living room, and two of the bedrooms. After a day discovering ruins at Mesa Verde, come back for a warm, cozy evening in front of the pellet stove. You'll also have a TV, VCR, and DVD player, as well as kids games and puzzles.

The full kitchen has a dishwasher, as well as a refrigerator, stovetop/oven, microwave, and a number of countertop appliances. Nearby downtown Mancos does have a few dining options, but you'll always be able to whip up a breakfast, lunch, or dinner here very easily.

The three bedrooms of this Mancos vacation home have two queen beds (the master also has its own bathroom), four twin beds, and three sofa beds - there's room for up to 12 guests here. Additional amenities include a gas grill and outdoor furniture - with over 300 days of sunshine per year, you'll definitely be able to spend a lot of time outside here. Your dogs will love the great outdoors - they're welcome for a small nightly fee.

This Durango getaway works extremely well for family vacations, group retreats, or any planned excursion within the Four Corners region. You'll be ideally-situated for day trips to town, Mesa Verde, skiing, and even leaf peeping in the fall.

Plan a Colorado adventure with a stay at this Mancos vacation rental and enjoy an unbeatable location, comfortable amenities, and a cozy, laid-back style.

About Vacasa, CO - Southwest Colorado Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website��could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

No AC throughout the house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location. With no air-conditioning except for the master bedroom may not be an optimal stay for the hotter times of the year. We stayed in June and it was OK in the evenings

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was very clean. We've rented houses in the mountains before and most of them ended up having some mouse droppings and mice. Not this one! Had a railing from a bedroom to a bathroom, which was very useful for my father. Plenty of clean towels and linens. We will stay here again.

Has potential, but needs updating and a good thorough deep cleaning!

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful location - very close to Mesa Verde. Nice deck, but too cool to use. Needs more indoor dinning space. Needs updating and a good thorough deep cleaning.

Owner's Response: The Property Manager and owner will rearrange furnishings to see if more room can be made for indoor seating. During the summer there is plenty of space on the deck for meals. The home has received a thorough spring cleaning. Thank you!

Beautiful vacation spot.

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home is perfect . Off the beaten path in a quiet country location with a beautiful view off the back deck. Yet close enough to all the activities that we were there to do.

The house was a bit outdated, but still very quaint. Almost everything we needed for our home away from home.

If you are planning on doing any cooking in a crock pot, bring your own as there isn't any in the house and we had to improvise.

Wornderful Time

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time while staying at this home. Absolutely breath taking scenery from the back balcony. The home was a little outdated, but had everything we needed. It was clean when we arrived. Very peaceful place to stay and so close to everything we came down to see.
