Overview

Cortez House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Anasazi Dreamin' Secluded w/ View

Welcome to Magic Rock. This unique house is set in the middle of 35 acres and is not visible from the road. You are one mile from Main St. Cortez, but feel like you are far from the city. This is the perfect place to do lots of interesting day trips of hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, hunting and exploring canyons for Anasazi ruins. You can see beautiful views of Mesa Verde and the La Platas Mountains while relaxing on the couch in the living room, or sitting out on the deck. The property has lots of historical and prehistorical sites of interest. Please feel free to explore around the property but do not take any pot shards, or other historical artifacts, or dig for them. We would like to keep it as untouched as possible for the next guests. The cold spring on the property was the first source of water for the town of Cortez. There are many Anasazi sites and some rock art on a large rock in the canyon, east of the house. Be careful getting down to see it. The eastern edge of the property runs down the middle of McElmo creek.

Magic Rock is within easy driving of Durango, Delores, Mancos, Mesa Verde, Canyon Lands, Four Corners Monument, Land of the Ancients, Telluride, Shiprock, Moab, the Delores and San Juan rivers, and lots of Anasazi points of interest. You could easily spend a week exploring all the local canyons. The Ute Mountain Casino is 11 miles away.

There is one bedroom with a queen size bed and then the sofa unfolds into a queen size bed. I've slept on the sofa bed and it is very comfortable. :^) The kitchen has stove, fridge, microwave, blender, toaster oven, crock pot, coffee grinder and coffee maker. Plenty of pots and pans for cooking and baking. Many spices are in the cupboard to the left of the stove. Lots of condiments in the refridgerator. If you enjoy drinking your wine out of crystal glasses or eating on fine china, this kitchen has what you need. There is a TV/DVD player that gets local station, also a TV in the bedroom. All the comforts of home!

This location is perfect for a stop over or extended stay.

Please call Kim, or email, if you are interested in this rental.

About KIM

I live in Alaska, but plan to move to this property when I reitre. I am very into the historical as well as natural wonders of this area. I hope you enjoy your stay at Magic Rock as much as I do.

KIM purchased this house in 2006

Why KIM chose Cortez

I've always been interested in archeology and native american history and culture specifically. My friends mother lives in the area and told me about this great property that was for sale. It has all the characteristics of the Hawkins Preserve(across the canyon) but is privately owed. I bought it site unseen and have not regretted my hasty action.

What makes this house unique

This property and the surrounding area are full of history, from the Anaszi Indians, to the first white settelers in the area. On this 35 acers you will find the original water supply for the town of Mitchell Springs, to the remains of a black smith shop, and Indian ruins. It is close to town approx. 1 mile to Main St. It is close to Sand Canyon which offers hiking, biking, and horse trails among the ruins of the Native Americans, want to go fishing, boating? no problem, not to brag but we are truley situated with in a hour of anything you want to do. Mesa Verde National Park can be seen from the door step of this home and is only 9 miles away,Historic Durango is a 1 hour drive, library, rec. center, parks, tennis courts are all in town here.

Magical Place

  • of 5
Our stay at Magic Rock was fantastic. The pictures don't do it justice. We were enchanted by the gorgeous views, the rock sculpted landscapes and the water oasis just over the hill. The rental itself is charming, with all the comforts of home. It was beautifully cleaned by Karen, and was a lovely home away from home. After each day of sight seeing, we ended the day with a glass of wine on the deck, watching the gorgeous sunsets and absorbing the quiet of the location. In fact, we brought in dinner each night so as not to miss one minute of the lovely evenings at Magic Rock. Mesa Verde is a short ride away, and the drive up the Dolores River to Telluride is not to be missed. Our stay at Magic Rock was one of the highlights of our week in southern Colorado and the Four Corners region.

Great home base for Mesa Verde

  • 4 of 5
Pros: Convenient location to explore local sites like Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, or Canyons of the Ancients. House is clean and comfortable. We stayed four nights and enjoyed the weather and the views.
Possible Cons: There is plenty of AC for the living area, but cool air does not go around corners well so the bedroom did not really benefit. It was okay for our trip because we had cool nights but would be a problem for us in warmer weather. We also had problems with mosquitos anytime we wanted to sit outside.
Summary: We enjoyed our stay. I would recommend Magic Rock to friends visiting the area.

A week in Cortez

  • 4 of 5
Location, location, location! Looking for a place to come home to in the evening and relax and enjoy a glass of wine? This is your place. The views are world class and even though Main St is one mile away you'd never know it. You are close to more attractions than you can possibly visit in a week's time and you can hike until your boots fall off and still not see half the trails within 45 minutes of this spot. I plan a return trip within the year and this will be the place where I will stay. Thanks for a wonderful stay Kim.

Escaped Winter!!

  • 4 of 5
We journeyed to Magic Rock to escape a late March winter storm, explore the ruins and to ride the amazing Phil's World trail. The house provided a comfortable, clean and unique HQ for our adventures. The views are amazing, the stars at night are wonderful and there is plenty to explore on the property itself. Don't miss Hawkin's Reserve across road 25 on "Verde Vu". Excellent pre-dinner walking area!
