Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Mike and Paula are sorta retired, having retired from employment with the State of Oklahoma. Mike spends his time writing stories and books on the history of the wild west. Paula, however, can't handle unstructured time and works as the social worker for the local hospital. She is also a registered nurse licensed to practice in Colorado.
Why the Owner Chose Cortez, CO, USA:
Mike and Paula for the past 25 years have made a point of vacationing in the Southwest because they both feel better when in the southwestern United States, Mike because of heart problems and Paula because of allergies. Both also value privacy. So, when this property, set as it is away from the road on an acreage, came available they purchased it. The guest house was a plus. In fact they liked the guest house so much they considered living there and renting out the big house. But, 32 years of accumulated 'stuff' dictated they live in the big house.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The guest will notice right off the lush flower gardens around the guest house and main house. The gardens have something in bloom most of the growing season and are simply beautiful. As this is high desert, the flowers are made possible because of irrigation water shares which came with the property. One would have to go a long way to see anything quite like the variety of flowers which grows here. This location for the traveler is ideal. It is within a few miles of the Mesa Verde; Hovenweep ruins; Crow Canyon; and Chaco Canyon. The Grand Canyon is an easy day drive as is Santa Fe.
