Overview

Dolores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Private Home on 35 Acres with views of the La Plata Mountains to Mesa Verde National Park and The Four Corners. This is a 400 square foot, park model home 2 miles from the town of Dolores. All full size appliances and a 37' HD TV. Halogen lighting on dimmers, ceiling, window fans and AC. Side table and lift top coffee table or patio furniture on the deck for enjoying a sunset dinner.

Wifi internet

Kitchen item include a Krups coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, all dishes and silverware. The sun comes in my south facing widows in the morning which is a good time to look out for deer, red fox, bobcats.

Take a walk around the perimeter of the acreage in the evening during sunset to find pottery shards and see wildlife. Sleep well with cool nights at 7000 feet.

Safe for kids, no cliffs or water to fall into. I supply paper towels, TP, hand soap and coffee filters.

It has a bath tub but the water heater is not big enough for a real hot bath. It's a half mile gravel road access.

Thanks Dean!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with our first ever vrbo experience. This place had absolutely everything we needed for a great getaway. The house was spic and and span and equipped with all the necessities. Drove right to the place with the owners directions. It's only a couple miles to the cute little town of Dolores and McPhee Reservoir, which was perfect since we came to fish. There was plenty of room to park our boat including a circle drive through. Had trouble with our boat motor and were grateful to find expert help from Stan at Doc's Marina. The boat inspector, Craig at McPhee greeted us with a smile and tons of info on the lake. The fish weren't biting but, we are planning a return trip next spring when the smallmouth bass fishing is supposed to be amazing. The reservoir is absolutely beautiful, and Huge. Very little boat traffic, mid August. The antique stores in town were a real treat too. Check out the pizza and live entertainment at Dolores River Brewery. Loved the small town atmosphere, friendly local folks and the perfect retreat tucked away in our own 35 acres of cedars and oak brush. It's a sweet little home with big views, lots of windows, bright and cheery. Thanks for making this place available, Dean. You have thought of everything! Really appreciate the affordable price! Didn't bring our dogs this trip, but sure appreciate the option to be able to do so!

Wonderful cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed this home. The home has all the necessary amenities to make for a comfortable stay. It is secluded, quiet, well-maintained, clean and cozy. The owner was very accommodating and very pleasant to work with. The home is in close proximity to Mesa Verde National Park, the town of Cortez and town of Dolores. The home suited our small family of four very well. We look forward to a future stay!

It Really IS a Cozy House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything it purported to be! Superb customer service from reservation process to Dean’s promptly answering our phone calls before and after we arrived. It was spotlessly clean. Plenty of towels, etc. Extra blankets for the lovely cool nights. Wonderfully outfitted Kitchen. All that is necessary for comfort and more. Beautiful setting. Close enough to towns for anything that might be needed or wanted. Far enough away from towns and neighbors to feel really away from it all. No lights to fade the view of the Milky Way at night!

We, and our family living in the area there, will be recommending it to anyone we know wanting to find a place to stay.

Great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this great rental. It is very secluded, which is right up our alley. It was a wonderful home base to explore the south west corner of Colorado. We visited Mesa Verde, Arches, did the San Juan Skyway, and in general drove around enjoying the scenery. Afternoons were spent enjoying the quiet beautiful view from the patio. All in all, a great experience. Delores is a fun place to poke around, and has several good restaurants. We had a wonderful stay, and Dean, our host was very helpful.

May Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a priced right secluded rental. It rained several days during our 6 day stay but that didn't dampen our spirits a bit as we had panoramic views from inside rental of the beautiful mountains and sky. Wildlife surrounded us. From the kitchen window we saw a yearling munch on the vegetation for around 30 minutes. Lots of tracks on ground after the rain. Wifi was spotty but that just added to getting away from it all. The road signs are RD 30 not CR 30 and Hwy 184 has two exits from 145. The first one is on the left when coming from Cortez, don't go that way. Continue on 145 and shortly 184 shows again, this time on the right; go that way and you will see Rd 30. If you are coming from north on 145 (from Telluride direction) then you should have no problem finding the correct 184,as it will be the first correct exit onto 184. The rest of the directions were spot on.
