William Carta purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why William Carta chose Dolores
Dolores is a hidden gem. A beautiful and still small mountain town, which has a great microbrewery, a famous 'biker bar' and a gourmet, organic local grocery. Just at the edge of town are extensive mountain bike trails. Situated 1 hour from Telluride, 45mins from Durango, 1/2 hr from Mesa Verde and an hour from Canyon of the Ancients, there are numerous activitites to explore. Dolores River runs right through town with rafting opportunities. Fly fishing is also very good.
What makes this Apartment unique
In Dolores, the seasons vary almost exactly when they should. All of the seasons are beautiful. The canyon wall provides endless opportunities to see bear, elk, deer, fox and mountain lions. Although the house is in town, a feeling of privacy and solitude is the normal experience there. Peaceful and totally Colorado.

Lovely home in quiet area
Loved staying here. Beautiful area with big trees and feels very private. Good size apartment with everything you need and felt very homey. Comfortable bed and lots of hot water for showers. Would definitely stay again
This is a very quiet, attractive, and comfortable one bedroom apartment in the pretty little town of Dolores. I stayed here for two months. I recommend it and would happily stay again.
Charming apartment, very accommodating hosts!
I stayed in the Hideaway for an extended period of time while working as a contracted employee in Cortez, an easy 10 minute commute away. I felt welcome and comfortable in the apartment, and couldn’t get enough of the gorgeous views out every door and window!
Cozy apartment in Dolores, Colorado. Close to lots of outdoor activities, including Mesa Verde.
We enjoyed our stay at Bill's second floor apartment. The living area is just large enough, and the view from the north balcony is amazing. We could walk to local restaurants. Our favorite was the Dolores Brewery. We rode our bikes around town, and on local bike paths. We also spent many days at Mesa Verde, which is very close. We would highly recommend Bill's apartment.
Great Place to Relax
Apartment is in the trees , large deck overlooks town with canyon views, upscale furnishings makes for a pleasant stay
The apartment was exactly as described and as shown in the pictures - lovely. While I don't recommend it for someone with great disability because of the spiral staircase, I have a moderate disability and was able to manage. The owner was quick and courteous in responding to our needs. I would highly recommend this rental.
Located near Mesa Verde between Durango and Telluride in the Dolores River Canyon by Lake McPhee the second largest resovoir in Colorado.
