About Dave or Carolyn McCuskey, owners

I am a retired Air Force and Airline pilot, My wife worked for Crown Zellerback in Las Vegas and now owns a local hair salon. Since i retired i hate to leave this property except to buy materials for the ongoing projects. Our little Blue Heeler (Matilda) and her friend, (Tigo) a neighbors dog watch after me every minute of the day.

My wife, carolyn and i are both from Parkersburg,Wv. and visit family there often.

Dave or Carolyn McCuskey, owners purchased this house in 1999

Why Dave or Carolyn McCuskey, owners chose Cortez

My wife and i lived in Las Vegas, NV. for many years while in the Air Force and airline business. We had to get away from the traffic and other bustle so we looked for solitude and reasonable weather and Dove Creek found us. We have beautiful summers, not hard winters, bright starry nights, no neighbors in sight, hardly a cloud in the sky, unlimited visibly and more days of sunshine than southern California. The remoteness, as a lifestyle, is not for everyone, but for a vacation or a couple of days getaway is for everyone.

What makes this house unique

We purchased this land for the beautiful views and the character of the property. We have a barn with stalls, a corral, and 20 acres of grazing; just in case you want bring horses. We have built up the property to our liking and it is complete, but still a work in progress. If you own a house you know what i mean. This property is us, we love it and we want you to visit. We are sure you will see it just as we see it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a location in the southwest part of Colorado for our honeymoon, this was the most reasonable BEST choice I ever found. Dave and Carolyn were so sweet and helpful. To my horror, I realized that there were no queen or double bed when we arrived, which the pictures on the internet clearly show twins, this was my error. Dave and Carolyn went straight to work and made our sleeping arrangements better (pushing to twins together), which worked perfectly. They were available if needed but left us two alone to enjoy ourselves. We went to Moab, Mesa Verde or just sat around the hot tub at night. My husband wants to go back there for hunting because it is in an ideal location and I secretly think he would love to finish that fire pit for Dave. lol :) Book this property it is worth it!

Excellent lodging; gracious hosts and perfect location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Monunent Canyon Ranch recently and had wonderful 6 day vacation! The property lives up to the description (I think the pictures do not do justice to how nice it really is). My husband enjoyed the workout room and hot tub... we all enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen for breakfast and dinner after long days of sight seeing in the area. The owners, Dave and Carolyn, answered all of our questions before we came and while we were there -they are wonderful! We picked this vaction home because it is close to so many sights in southeast UT and southwest CO that we wanted to see. We visited 3 National Parks (Mesa Verde, Archs and Canyonland); 2 National Monuments (Hovenweep and the 4 Corners) and numerous state parks and local sites in our 6 day vacation. The home has a couple of nice nearby diners and 24 hour groceries. BONUS: the groceries here were less expensive than nearby larger cities. The scenery was breathtaking both at the ranch and nearby with gorgeous blue skies against the red rock formations; surprising canyons with Indian ruins off of dirt roads (very close to the home) and starry night skies. If we are back in this area we would stay again not only for the hospitality of Dave and Carolyn and the wonderful lodging, but also because there is so much to do within 1-2 hours of the property.

THE BRIGHTEST NIGHT SKY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Monument Canyon Ranch several days recently, and I promise you we will go back!! The "Ranch" was our base of operations for numerous family excursions (jeep trips, 4th of July festivities in nearby Dove Creek and sojourns to national parks, forests and monuments). If you are a hunter looking for a base camp, I can't imagine a more pleasant venue to spend the dark hours. The great room is large enough for several adults to relax and not be on top of each other, and the sleeping accommodations are quite comfortable as well. The kitchen is well equipped with everything one might need to prepare a hearty meal. There is an exercise room for anyone who does not get enough of a workout of the area. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub in the evening hours as the temperature dropped in typical high desert fashion (the quiet surroundings with a view of the starry night sky is something everyone should experience before they die). In short, Monument Canyon Ranch is an ideal place to hang your hat while visiting southwestern Colorado or southeast Utah!

Excellent

Dave & Carolyn, Thanks so much for the opportunity to experience your remarkable lodging facilities. Each individual in our group has has considerable exposure to rental accommodations and we are all in agreement that nothing has been found to what you folks offer at Monument Canyon Ranch. To top it off, the care and concern that you had for our welfare was beyond expectations. Monument Canyon will be our top priority for next year. Ed and The Boys from Illinois
