About Nancy and Tom Boone
I'm from California, my husband is from Minnesota, we both lived in Arizona for many years before moving to Colorado. We love the mountains, meadows, forest and lakes that surround our home and love to share this peaceful land with other nature loving people. We look forward to meeting you and having you as our guests.
Nancy and Tom Boone purchased this House in 2013
Why Nancy and Tom Boone chose Mancos
After living in this area of Colorado for many years, in 1999 we purchased this 95 acres at Summit Lake to build our dream home. We love this property because it's close to town, yet has the privacy and the peacefulness of the country. My husband, a home builder for 35 yrs, completed our home in 2002. We have 17 grandchildren that love to come for visits and spend time exploring and playing on this gorgeous land. We have easy access to Summit Lake making kayaking and fishing very convenient. Wildlife viewing is another favorite past time, as this land has deer, elk, fox, coyote, blue heron, and Canadian geese, just to name a few. Our Enchanted Retreat was completed by my husband in July 2013. Come enjoy the beauty of this land, walk our private trails, sit in nature and renew your spirit.
What makes this House unique
This is the perfect spot for your vacation or personal retreat. This is a first class accommodation with plenty of privacy, surrounded by 360 degrees of breath taking views of mountains, lakes, and wild life. A great way to experience the beauty and mystic of the southwest. Fall asleep to the hum of natures finest under a starlit night, impeded by 'no' city noises or unnatural lights. Wake to the sounds of the land coming alive! And so close to so many attractions and destinations. Fresh air, new perspective! What more could you ask for!

Serene, Gorgeous Mountain Home
We didn't want to leave! The home is designed beautifully, and everything looks brand new. Spotlessly clean and very well-stocked. The open, sweeping views are some of the best we have seen. Spent time outside grilling and enjoying the peace and quiet. The hostess, Nancy, was most welcoming and made herself available. We absolutely will stay again when in the area.
It was such a pleasure having you and Bill as our guests. We’re so pleased you enjoy your time here and found everything to be more than you expected. Thank you for leaving our home in great condition. We welcome you back any time.
Wonderful spot. Great views. Unique niceties provided by owners. Would recommend this to anyone!
Peaceful, quiet, good HQ for the area
Loved every minute we were there, one of our days we even had to stick around the entire day (had to work) and it felt like home. We grilled steaks on the bbq and watched the various birds and other visitors to the property.
Make sure you checkout the small surrounding towns like Dolores, great local art, beer and food.
Pristine and comfortable hideaway with spectacular views
My husband and I booked this VRBO while our girls attended the nearby Crow Canyon Archaeology Camp for a week this summer. It ended up being the centerpiece of a magical vacation for us. We had intended to take advantage of the house's internet and to get some remote work done--however the proximity of this rental to amazing hikes and adventures in Mesa Verde, Durango, and Canyon of the Ancients foiled our work plans and kept us on the move. The beautiful property that this house sits on also provides opportunities for exploring wooded paths and meadows and for relaxing on the wraparound porch and enjoying the eye-popping scenery of mesas and mountains. The house itself is the best VRBO rental I've encountered--it was meticulously clean and thoughtfully outfitted with every essential and accessory needed for a stress-free and comfortable vacation. We cooked elaborately, slept soundly, and stared constantly out the windows at the beautiful surroundings. Highest recommendations for this rental--the owners have truly created an enchanted retreat!
Amazing house, built by the owner to take advantage of the site. Wonderful views, lots of nice touches in the house, quiet and private, filled with light all day long thanks to it's unique design. Gracious hosts who live nearby, location is very good for exploring the Four Corners area. Bird watched for hours in the morning and evening; exceeded our expectations, many thanks to Tom and Nancy!
Thanks for the nice review Bruce and Julie. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Enchanted Retreat and found it to exceed your expectations. We do our best to make everyone's stay pleasant. Good to hear you got the site seeing in that you wanted to do, and still enjoyed your evenings on the deck. Thanks for
being great guests, we hope to see you again sometime.

"Enchanted" describes it perfectly.
Absolutely beautiful with everything you could possibly need.
We are an hour from Durango Mountain Ski Resort, about 90 minutes from Telluride Ski Resort and Mountain Village.
Mesa Verde Visitor Center is 18 miles, downtown Durango shopping and Durango/Silverton Train is 45 minutes. Crow Canyon is only 25 minute drive and has great tours twice a week.
We have several hometown Brew Pubs, and great restaurants serving delicious locally grown food.
We also have several antique stores in Dolores, Cortez and Mancos, as well as Durango.
