Your home away from home is located 2 miles north of Cortez on 3 acres. We live on site but the vacation home is very private from the main home with it's own private entrance. Since we are on the property we are available to help in any way we can to make your visit the most enjoyable it can be. This home has been a three year labor of love with many special touches including hickory floors and tasteful furnishings and decorations. You enter the 1200 square foot home through a sun porch with it's own gas fireplace. This is the perfect place to have your morning coffee while enjoying the views. The great room is beautifully decorated and also has a gas fireplace and satellite television. The kitchen is a gourmet cook's delight equipped with everything you need to prepare a great meal. There is eating space at the granite topped island in the kitchen as well as a dining table overlooking the view to the south and west. The Master bedroom with a king bed is spacious and has a private bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed. Both bedrooms have satellite television and a deck accessible by French doors. The second bath is equipped with a jetted tub.
The inside is so beautiful that you won't want to leave, however the outdoors here in Southwestern Colorado have magnificent sunsets and mountain views that you won't want to miss.
There is a hot tub and fire pit in the backyard and covered parking. Nice landscaping if you just want to sit on the porch and enjoy the outdoors.
We added nice little touches such as a Keurig coffee maker with complimentary assorted coffees, a spice rack, fresh flowers on your table and laundry detergent and softener to use in the front loading washer and dryer. There is also an Ipod/Ipad dock and we supply soft terry robes for lounging or as a warm cover up to and from the hot tub.
In the summer of 2011 we completed a 26 foot geodesic dome greenhouse that is full of flowers and vegetables. It is a perfect place to read a book or eat a meal. It is a 4 season greenhouse, so it can be enjoyed even when there is snow on the ground.
We have a roof top observation terrace with spectacular views and a great place to star gaze. A view finder will help you see up close. Also a great place to work on your tan during the day.
Ken and Lou Anne have owned the San Juan Dental Clinic since 1978, where Ken is a dentist and Lou Anne is a hygienist. They have 3 grown children and enjoy traveling, mostly in an RV. We began building the vacation home about three years ago and just recently completed it. Since we have lived here for 32 years we are very familiar with the area. Cortez is a great place to stay since it is centrally located to many of our favorite places such as Moab, Durango, Telluride and three National Parks, Mesa Verde, Arches and Canyonlands. There are also many Native American sights to see within a few miles of here such as Hovenweep and the Anasazi Heritage Center.# Map shows Co Rd N which is( County Road N ) Street sign says MC RD N (Montezuma County Road N) Wanted to clear up any confusion, they are the same road
Lou Anne purchased this house in 2010
Because we live here and built it on our existing property.
It is quiet, safe, peaceful and at night you can see the stars and have a great view of the lights of town. The hot tub and hammock are very relaxing as you listen to the sounds of nature.
Mesa Verde cliff dwellings was our primary focus when searching for a house. Location was good but the house and offerings were the icing on the cake. Hot tub after hiking was fantastic. Very clean and modern. Two bedrooms and an extra HIGH QUALITY self inflating/deflating mattress was great with teenage kids. Patios and tables galore.. more than we could use in a few days. Separate observation deck for night sky viewing was nice. Many restaurants and grocery in town nearby. Many good destinations close by for day tripping and using as a base camp for a week.
We couldn't ask for anything better! We really loved it. This house should receive 10 stars! Owners put so much heart in this beautiful cozy place, decorations are just beautiful! We stayed there for 7 nights and it was just perfect! Our kids loved it to explore outside looking for grasshoppers and caterpillars first thing in the morning, not mentioning both girls loved to play with owners dog that was super cute! The owners are very hospitable and helpful and are willing to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone and we certainly are looking forward to visiting and staying here again.
This place was AMAZING!!! It had everything that you could think of in a place to stay. The kitchen was great and had everything. The whole place was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We felt very spoiled there. They thought of everything right down to toothbrushes and toothpaste. :) We would highly recommend this place to anyone and will tell all of our friends about it. Thank you for a wonderful time!
We spend a week in the house and we really liked it very much. The house is modern and has much space for two people. We relaxed every night in the hot tube after a long day of Sightseeing in Durango, the Mesa Verde NP, in Telluride and Canyonland NP. There were a lot of wild animals we saw: deer, owl, squirrels and hummingbirds. We are recommending the house and the friendly Carlsson Family!
Ken and Louanne are so hospitable and the house is amazing. We enjoyed viewing wildlife from our patio. Our grandchildren looked forward to seeing deer (doe and bucks) up close on a daily basis. We saw very large owls in the distant field. I love the natural babbling creek and the mature cottonwood trees that surround the property.
The kitchen is fantastic and the beds were very comfortable. The décor is beautiful. The upper deck above the parking space is a beautiful place to gaze at the stars after dark.
It was one of the most relaxing experiences I have ever had on a vacation.
I would highly recommend this place, I'm telling my friends about it, and I plan to return.
Be sure to visit the Cortez Visitor's Center for additional ideas in the area. There are lots of things to do. The 4th of July fireworks are some of the best I have seen. The City of Cortez really knows how to put on a show.
We LOVED our stay! With 2 professional chefs in the group, the amenities were perfect, the house was beautiful and comfortable, and we are trying to figure out how to schedule another trip to the 4 corners area so we can stay again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
