Hi-speed internet.This cozy log home is located on 80 acres of pristine private land with fantastic views of the Southwest Rocky Mountains and the sacred Sleeping Ute Mountain! This property is only 25 minutes from Mesa Verde and only 90 minutes from the Telluride Ski Area! It is only 50 minutes from Durango!
The great room has floor to ceiling windows facing south with nothing but trees and rolling canyons as far as the eye can see! The kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs, or you can barbeque on the east covered porch with the gas grill. Downstairs there are two cozy bedrooms with double antique beds and a full bath. Located upstairs is the large private master bedroom, which has a king-size bed upon a custom log frame. Connected to the master bedroom is the master bath with a beautiful tiled shower. Central air conditioning and heating will keep you comfortable during any season.
After a day of exploring the ancient cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde (only 25 min away), relax in the six person Olympia Caldera hot tub. If you look hard enough you will find pottery shards, arrowheads, possible kiva sites and other scattered remnants of this ancient culture on the 80 private acres the home sits on. Please do not remove or disturb any of these artifacts.
If you long for peace and quiet, this is the place. The fall weather is gorgeous, the winters are mild and snow country is only a short distance away. The home rests on the edge of a series of tree covered canyons leading up to a spectacular view of the sacred Sleeping Ute Mountain. Not one other human made structure can be seen from the south deck of the cabin to the Sleeping Ute in the distance.

My husband and I spent one week at the cabin in early October. The location was perfect. Secluded but short drive to Cortez. We had been trying to stay in this cabin for two years and finally made it. It was worth the effort. The home is beautiful and very well furnished. We will definitely be back.
Nice review Barbara! Thanks so much and I'll look forward to your return! All the best, Lana
Comfortable and convenient
Thanks for the amazing landing spot for our short getaway! It has everything we needed and the hot tub was nice after long days of exploring the amazing landscape around the Cortez area!
Wonderful cabin home, nicely appointed, far nicer than expected!
This is a great location for our purpose: Six guys hiking Canyons of the Ancients, Exploring Mesa Verde, and hiking for a day at Hovenweep. All of these are less than an hour from this house. Smitty's Liquor store is only 20 minutes away and cortez is about 30 minutes; very convenient. We had cots with us and sleeping bags for the next leg of our adventure, so we took turns sleeping outside on the great deck and porch. Everything is here you might need, including extra propane for the grill. The view of Sleeping Ute Mountain and the incredible stars made a nice relaxing location. We hiked all day and returned for showers and cocktails in the late afternoon. We highly recommend this property if you are thinking about exploring any of the above parks, or are looking for a very private getaway to relax where you don't have any neighbors, but are close enough to civilization that you can still run to the store if needed.
Was a great time! Nice to feel some sunshine! Beautiful and private! Lana was great!
Thanks Christy for nice review. Come and see us again sometime!!
The property was beautiful. Loved how secluded it was.
We picked the perfect cabin. We enjoyed our time there so much. We loved the hot tub and exploring. We did not want to leave.
Thanks Brandi for the great review on the Cabin. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and I'll look forward to having you come back to the Cabin or one of our other homes in the area in the near future!
All the best!
Loved this place. Landscape around the property is so beautiful and we were lucky enough to get snow
Nice house and great location. House was clean and very nice. Everything we needed in the kitchen. Quiet and relaxing which is just what we needed. Visited Mesa Verde and enjoyed seeing the dwellings.
Thanks Gina for the wonderful review on the Cabin. I was happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to be able to welcome you back in the near future!
All the best,
There is great hiking on the 80 private acres or drive a few minutes to the head of Sand Canyon and hike into 164,000 acres of public land. This area contains the highest known archaeological density in the United States. Portions of this undeveloped monument have more than 100 cultural sites per square mile-some individual sites cover 10 acres or more. From this location you can go east to Mesa Verde National Park 19 miles away or keep going to Durango 53 miles away. In Durango ride the narrow gauge train to Silverton or have an evening meal at the Bar D Chuckwagon [reservations required]. Travel north out of Durango to Durango Ski Resort, or keep going over the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton and Ouray. Next head to Telluride and ski down the beautiful snow packed slopes at Telluride Ski Resort. You can go south and gamble at the Ute Mountain Casino about 15 miles away. Visit the Ute Mountain Tribal Park where they give guided tours through their Indian ruins.
