About Lynne Howarth
I have lived in the Mancos area since 1990 and initially fell in love with the open spaces, snow capped mountains and all of the outdoor opportunities available! The Homestead is situated on one of the oldest ranches in the Mancos Valley. I think you will fall in love with it, just like I did.
Lynne Howarth purchased this Farmhouse in 1992
Why Lynne Howarth chose Mancos
The Homestead is nestled in the Mancos Valley with breathtaking views of the surrounding cattle and horse ranch, the La Plata Mountain range and Mesa Verde National Park. We are perfectly situated within minutes from town, but private enough that our closest neighbors are cattle and horses! The peaceful setting invites all who enter to relax and unwind, enjoy the amenities and enjoy each other.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We fell in love with the spacious feel of The Homestead. We can enjoy coffee while watching the sun rise over the La Plata mountains in the morning. Then at the end of a fun filled day in the outdoors, sipping a glass of wine while soaking in our western sunsets. Contained within the existing structure is one of the original homesteads of the Mancos Valley from the early 1900's, which naturally peaked our interest in the home. Our home is perfect for large family gatherings or a group of friends traveling together. If you are traveling with your horses, ask us about paddock space--also plenty of room to park trucks and trailers. For those with bikes, kayaks or other outdoor gear, we have a secure spot to store. The Homestead has great indoor/outdoor spaces and plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the wonders of Southwest Colorado!

Great stay at this VRBO!
For our party of six this property was the awesome. Plenty of room, very clean, and furnishings were top of the line. Meet the director and staff of the Medicine Horse and they were very accommodating in telling us the history of the property and how the proceeds of the VRBO are used for their work with the Medicine Horse Therapy Center. This location is just 6 miles from the entrance from Mesa Verda and 30 minutes to catch the train at Durango. We loved our stay!
Berneta--it was such a pleasure meeting you all and sharing a bit about The Homestead and our work at Medicine Horse. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind words.
Enjoy the rest of your Colorado trip! Please come back and see us again--Lynne
This home is immaculate, warm and inviting. Great location. Great facility. If we lived closer we’d visit every year.
Hi Laura--thank you for such a kind review and for taking such great care of our home during your stay. Happy travels and hope to see you again someday! Lynne
Fabulous vacation rental!!!
It was the perfect place for a family gathering. We loved the setting and the house is great and very accommodating. It’s very convenient to many wonderful places.
Bev and all--thank you so much for your kind review. Please come see us again sometime! Lynne
Our vacation at this property was absolutely beautiful & peaceful. The home itself was roomy for our large group. My family and I loved seeing the horses, donkey, deer, and mountains in the area. The property was full of snow during our visit which made the home and the mountains look more gorgeous than what they already are. The view from the windows each morning was breathtaking. Durango was a short drive from the property and roads were kept in great condition for our traveling. Although we never got to personally meet Lynne she was great with communication anytime I contacted her by phone or email. I have rented a few times from VRBO and this home is by far the best one yet. My family and I look forward to returning in the future. Thank you again Lynne we loved our stay!! :-)
We had a wonderful family gathering. We were treated with a good amount of snow after we arrived which made the trip even better. The winter views were spectacular. We really appreciate letting our grand kids visit with Goldie, Sally and Willie (did I remember their names correctly). It is a very special thing you do with the kids and horses! The house was very well appointed and especially clean. It was a perfect fit for us. If you ever need extra helpers, I will send my son and daughter-in-law your way. They are big time animal lovers. Thanks Lynne!
Hi Glenn--so glad you enjoyed our home and it was our pleasure to have your grandkids meet a few of our therapy horses (yes, you got the names right!). Please come back and visit us any time. Glad you enjoyed the snow!
Beautiful home, lots of room, very peaceful setting.
This was a a wonderful location from which to stage our vacation. Close to Mesa Verde, and between Durango and Cortez, it is centrally located to the many activities around the area. Plenty of privacy, without being too remote. We often saw deer from the dining room table, and always on our walks or drives around the area. It has all the conveniences necessary. Fully stocked with all the kitchen utensils needed. Plenty of bed and bath linens. The master bedroom/bathroom are fantastic! Several cute shops and cafes in Mancos. Definitely want to stay here again! Thanks to Lynne for making such a wonderful place available, and keeping it up so nice!
Gloria and All...thank you so much for your kind review. We love the peacefulness of our Homestead property too!. Please come back soon for a visit! Lynne
We are located a few minutes drive from the Mesa Verde National Park entrance. The Homestead is also minutes from downtown Mancos, Colorado, with its galleries, restaurants and local activities.
