Welcome to Peaceful Meadows! We are located in Southwest Colorado near Mesa Verde National Park, just outside the town of Mancos. Situated near the Four Corners area, we are near Durango, Silverton, Telluride, Arches, Moab, Trail of the Ancients, and much more.

We have nine bedrooms, which all have their own private bathrooms. In addition to a two-story great room with a natural stone fireplace, we have a large recreational room with a wood-burning stove where you can watch videos or play games (we have many in our collection). We also have a hot tub and miles of tails on our acres of land to explore. You can enjoy our spectacular views of the La Plata mountains and Mesa Verde from our deck and patio areas. We have a large dining room table that seats 18+, as well as more tables and seating inside and out. There is no air conditioning, but all the bedrooms and the main living room have ceiling fans. The basement is always cool.

This is a great venue for retreats, weddings, meetings, reunions, and other events. It can accommodate up to 27 overnight guests. Please contact us for more information.

About Alicia Robb

After 5 years in DC, 12 years in the Bay Area, and 2 years in Boulder, I decided it was time for a little more balance. I've always wanted to live in a more rural, less crowded area.

Alicia Robb purchased this house in 2016

Why Alicia Robb chose Mancos

I fell in love with this house w/its views of Mesa Verde and the mountains and surrounding meadows. It's a wonderful place to recharge and relax. For visitors, it's a great base to explore all that SW Colorado the Four Corner area have to offer.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful getaway, yet a perfect base to explore the four corners area.

Perfect for our Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Great host, great stay! We couldn't have asked for a better location! Each room had its own ensuite bathroom and many of the above ground bedrooms also had a balcony. The main and basement levels each have several bedrooms, basement also has a game area. There's also a smaller 2nd fridge in the bar area (just off the kitchen) and additional half bath on the main level. There's no A/C, but open windows/screened doors and fans kept even the upper levels at a comfortable temperature. The living and dining room areas were very open and spacious. We were able to get our 21 people in there fairly comfortably. We actually didn't use the dining room that often as we chose to eat out on the large deck outside the living room - plenty of patio tables and chairs to enjoy the view of Mesa Verde and more. One of the best parts for all of us city dwellers was to see the absolutely breathtaking starry night sky!

Our Family "Camping" Week

The house was very big and accommodated our whole family. The carpet was kinda smelly. Loved the views and acreage. Overall it was a good fit.

The house was great - big enough to host our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was great - big enough to host our family reunion, There are plenty of bathrooms and the kitchen had enough room for several people to prepare and cook food for a large group. The stars were beautiful and the location was good, close enough to get to Mesa Verde, Durango, and Cortez in about 30 minutes.

Size, layout, and location make this beautiful home a fantastic choice for your vacation getaway.

  • 5 of 5

It was our privilege to spend four nights at this beautiful lodge over 4th of July weekend, 2018. Guest rooms are spacious, and each is equipped with private bath. Some guests opted to pay extra for a private room, so our head count was capped at 19 with latecomers staying at a motel in nearby Mancos; they and a few locals joined us for evening meals. Two dozen guests found plenty of space at the long dining room table or on the large deck.

There's no air conditioning, but the house remained quite comfortable with open windows and ceiling fans. The recently renovated and expanded kitchen features quality appliances and is well stocked for preparing a variety of meals. Plates, cups, glassware, flatware, etc. are sufficient for a large group like ours.

Most of our extended party are mountain bikers, and we thoroughly enjoyed riding at Phil's World near Cortez and Boggy Draw outside Dolores, both within easy driving distance. Craft breweries were conveniently located for out post-ride cool down. For many in the group, however, the highlight of the [much too short] weekend was a guided hike to cliff dwellings at Ute Mountain Tribal Park adjacent to Mesa Verde National Park. Our Ute guide provided unique interpretive insight.

We don't often travel to the Four Corners, which is hours from Colorado's Front Range. Staying at this secluded lodge with beautiful views and stunning night skies was a joy. With luck, we'll have to opportunity to repeat the experience.

The lodge was perfect for our large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family was able to be together to celebrate the life of our father. The lodge was big enough for us to be together and entertain our extended family.

Beautiful Property and home!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the fireplace in the living room. There was plenty of room for our family of 18. Never ran out of hot water for the whole house... overall, the view and home was beautiful and very enjoyable!
