Cortez Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 8 Max.

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.

Perfect home base!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect home base for our Cortez adventures. We spent ten days exploring, hiking and mountain biking in the area. After hiking Sand Canyon and biking Phil's World and Boggy Draw, we looked forward to the hot tub and comfortable master bedroom. We loved the kitchen. It had everything we needed to fix our breakfasts and dinners each day. Sometimes we even made it back in time to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. If not, viewing the stars from the hot tub was spectacular! This is a great property that I would highly recommend. Lots of privacy, beautiful views and a very clean, comfortable home. Hope to visit again soon!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this cabin! It was so quiet and relaxing, but close enough to town to find something to do. Mesa Verde, Telluride, Four Corners, Silverton are just a few places we visited. But we always looked forward to getting back to the cabin!

The view from the deck was beautiful! I loved sitting on the deck with my cup of coffee every morning.

Accommodations of the cabin were amazing! We didn't want to leave!

This was the perfect spot for a truly relaxing vacation! We will be coming back!

Wonderful and quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home a few days prior to Christmas. After first it was a bit tricky to find, but we came across a neighbor in the area who pointed us in the right direction. This hidden gem was perfect for our short escape from the city. The views were absolutely amazing! We drove around the area and saw lots of deer in the snow, which was such a serene sight. The home was comfortable and roomy for a family. We had such a wonderful time in the winter there, that I would love to see how beautiful the summer is around that area. This home came with everything you would need in the comfort of a home. The only recommendation I would add would be to have a non-stick pan. It may have been our lack of skill with the pans provided, but we ended up buying a cheap non-stick pan at Wal-Mart to use after our first unsuccessful attempt. Thank you for extending your home to others and allowing us the escape from everyday life.

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights/5 days at this home. It's absolutely beautiful. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and had an incredible time. Close enough to many must see sights, with all the comforts of home. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for peace/quiet/breath taking scenery all around!!

Perfect Vacation Home In The Mesa Verde Area

  • 5 of 5

The house location and amenities were exactly as described, the inside was even better. The attention to the little details was amazing as we just kept seeing new things the whole 7 days we were there. The décor was not overwhelming, but well thought out in relationship to the Mesa Verde area. The master bed was very comfortable, and the master bedroom and bath were beautiful. Everything you could possibly need for cooking was there and the grill outside was fantastic (use the sear setting, it's great!!) Lana was extremely helpful and prompt with all of our questions about the home and our vacation in general. Thank you Lana for letting us live in this wonderful home for 7 nights and helping to make our vacation perfect!!! We would definitely recommend this home to anyone vacationing in the area. Just be careful driving with the bunnies and the deer.
