We enjoyed every minute of our stay!
The place was just wonderful. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful; you can see not only the famous sand dunes but also the mountains and grasslands thorough the panoramic window. We also enjoyed the night sky full of stars. Since it was February, there were not too many visitors to the national park so that we enjoyed hiking on the Medano Pass Primitive Road, which is exclusively reserved for 4WD vehicles. It was pretty cold though we had no problem because of Doug’s thoughtful advises.
I was looking for a quiet place close to Great Sand Dunes National Park but also a comfortable, cozy place to enjoy some me time. The cabin fit the bill perfectly. It was welcoming on arrival and nicely stocked so I could cook for myself, relax, and just enjoy the amazing views. And instructions and communication from Doug was timely and very helpful, with several fun suggestions I explored. I highly recommend this lovely cabin retreat.
This is a beautiful property with an amazing view of the dunes at Great Sand Dunes NP and Preserve. The house was immaculate and a great location. The owner always responded immediately to our inquiries and was very pleasant to work with. We highly recommend the property!
Super cute cabin
We couldn’t have found a better place to stay for our first visit to the Great Sand Dunes. The location is ideal. And, the views of the dunes from the cabin are amazing. The cabin had everything we needed (we cooked a lot) and was very comfortable. We failed at finding the “path” to Zapata Falls. But, we managed to forge our own trail using GPS and our ears. It was the best adventure and the falls were spectacular. (Note: take water shoes. The only way to see the falls is wading through icy cold water, but totally worth it) Highly recommend Doug’s cabin for an adventurous getaway.
Close to the Dunes!
The property was clean and well maintained. The location was perfect for all we wanted to do (Sand Dunes, Zapata Falls, Colorado Alligator Park, Zapata Ranch, Sand Dunes Recreation). There were lots of thoughtful little touches from the owner as well- like a welcome basket. Some things that I forgot to bring were already there- like bug spray and sun screen. Really a magical stay. Thanks Doug! (PS go early and bring socks if you are going to sand board at the dunes. That way you won't burn your feet!)
We loved our time in Blanca!! Will be back!
The cabin is amazing! The views are outstanding!! I highly recommend you give it a try!
The Great Sand Dunes National Park is 5 minutes away. Zapata Ranch is right across the street.
