Recent Cortez reviews

  • Cortez

    "The house and property was beautiful. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Ashley was helpful and accomodating. The shower heads need to be replaced as several were broken or missing parts but the beds were comfortable, the hot tub warm and the kitchen had everything we needed."

  • Beautiful home and property! We hope to stay here again the next time we come to Mesa Verde.

    "The property is just amazing. It has gorgeous views of the mountains with a rushing creek running through it. The craftsmanship of the home is remarkable. The owner and builder is a skilled stonemason and carpenter. The detailed woodwork in the interior is intricate and beautiful. The rooms are furnished with antiques that in and of themselves are prized pieces of art. There is beauty to behold on all fronts inside and out! Our children enjoyed exploring the creek, climbing the treehouse, and throwing the ball for the resident dog. We even got a friendly visit from the horses next door. The accommodations were clean and luxurious. The only thing we missed was a laundry machine. The stay was safe, comfortable, relaxing, and friendly. We hope to come again."

  • Stellar hiking, Native ruins, wine, and seclusion

    "This property won't be for everybody, but if it's for you...man, it will really be for you. This is a one-bedroom apartment occupying the full first floor of a house, fully separated from the rest of the house. It has a bedroom, an open plan main room with good-sized eat-in kitchen and den, bathroom, and laundry room. The den also has a fold-out sofa (an excellent American Leather one that's actually comfortable). Everything was spotlessly clean. It's located about 30 minutes west of downtown Cortez in McElmo Canyon. The location is very, very secluded, so you'll definitely want to think about planning your meals in advance (there are a handful of remarkably good restaurants in Cortez, but it's a minor trek to get to them). Despite the seclusion, the property is sandwiched within walking distance of two phenomenal attractions. To the north, literally out the back gate of the property, is Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, comprised of nearly 200,000 acres of back country wilderness filled with Native American ruins from the same people who lived in Mesa Verde. To the south is woefully underappreciated Sutcliffe Winery, which may very well be making the best off-coast wines in the country right now. Susan, the owner, was pleasant, flexible, helpful, and unobtrusive. She provided some good intel on restaurants and on the adjoining hiking trails, and was fine with our moving-target arrival time. When we left an e-reader in the apartment, she was kind enough to mail it to us, refusing to let us reimburse her. A few caveats that were totally fine by us, but you may want to consider: * There's a bit of a menagerie on premises. Two sweet, very friendly dogs, a cat, and at least one very well-cared-for horse. All animals were well behaved and, aside from a few "notice me" whimpers from the greyhound as we walked by, very quiet, but if you're not an animal person, you should know that the property isn't exactly animal-free. Again, the apartment is totally separate from the rest of the house, so it's not like you'd find the dogs sleeping in your bed or anything. * The bed is pretty firm. Comfortable, but firm. * Internet and cell service are spotty. I had one bar of Verizon LTE, and there are numerous dead spots on the drive down McElmo Canyon. The apartment has Wi-Fi that I didn't try, but Susan said it wasn't the greatest either. Possibly of concern if you need to telecommute. We loved our stay, we'll definitely be back."

  • Lovely property if you like your nature, serenity and a beautiful place to stay this is it

    "We really enjoyed our stay here, Lee and Peggy were excellent hosts and really cared about us being comfortable and happy. We stayed at the lake house and the setting was just gorgeous overlooking the lake lots of little walking paths with enter calls a seating area and pretty flowers, many indigenous to the area. I would recommend is chiming Lakehouse to all my friends and family and to anyone looking for a relaxing time or creative get away for writers artists and musicians"
