This custom built newly constructed cabin sits on over a hundred acres and offers a fenced area for horses. Your entry is on the main floor and you will notice right away the gorgeous walnut wood flooring that was milled locally in Mancos. The kitchen is fully furnished with custom cabinets and granite countertops and has been thoughtfully stocked with everything you need to make home cooked meals for your family. Right off the kitchen is the dining area with a gorgeous one of a kind, locally made aspen and ponderosa pine table that seats 10. This large open floor plan also includes a living room with a gas fireplace and a 40" HDTV. Lie in your king bed at night and look out the window at the gorgeous views, possibly a full moon as it sits above the Mesa Verde, and watch the stars as they tell you the secrets of the ancient pueblo Indians who lived there before. Don't bother looking for your slippers If you have to get up in the middle of the night, the floors are all heated and you will come back to bed feeling completely warm. The master bath has custom features from the shower to the hand made tiles created by a local artisan. The loft has queen bed and full bath, and a large seating area for you to enjoy the views of the La Plata mountains while reading a book or just relaxing. Head down to the basement which has two bedrooms and a full bath. The first room has a set of full size bunks and a little game area that leads out the the lower patio. The 2nd huge room has a full living room with a 60" tv with surround sound, a wet bar with coffee set up and full refrigerator. In the middle of all this is the biggest, most comfortable king bed you will ever sleep in. Grab your towel and head out to the patio on the back, slip into the hot tub with a glass of wine and enjoy the starlit night.

We absolutely loved the cabin and Mancos. Kris went out of her way to welcome us and accommodate us during our entire stay. We are planning on returning in the Fall this year.
Great Cabin close to Mesa Verde
This was a great cabin. It was a short distance to Mesa Verde and fulfilled our needs.
Great place to get away and explore the Mesa Verde area.
Great place to get away and explore the Mesa Verde area. Beautiful views and peaceful setting. Saw a bob cat pass thru the area twice while we were there! Relaxing hot tub after seeing the sights.
My husband and I rented this house for a few of the members in our wedding party to stay in. Kris was absolutely amazing. She responded quickly to every message and was extremely accomidating. The house itself is gorgeous and it's location makes it a perfect destination for people looking to experience all of what southwestern Colorado has to offer! We really enjoyed the fact that the owners do not have Wifi because it made our group of friends become even closer. Our group is already planning a reunion!
Fantastic across the board!
This is definitely the place to stay to see Mesa Verde. The home is very close to the park, closer than Cortez (just don't follow the GPS through Mancos). It is private, spacious, clean, well appointed and great for a larger family or multiple families. The layout allows for gathering and eating on the main level, but separation when desired. We could not have been happier with our selection to rent this home.
Beautiful cabin, beautiful views, all around beauty!
We loved everything about this beautiful place! There was plenty of space for our whole group and the owner was a pleasure and always helpful!
El Rio Mancos cabin sits in the backyard of the Mesa Verde National Park and a short 5 minute drive will find you at the Welcome Center where you can see the how the cliff dwellers from a thousand years ago lived. If you really love history, there's plenty to see with Old West historic towns of Mancos, Delores, Silverton, Durango, Rico and Telluride all within driving range. If you travel around to any of these places, be sure and check out the local antique shops where you will find authentic south western items depicting a way of life to soon gone. If you're lucky, you will get a glimpse of a real life cattle drive in progress as it makes it's way past the cabin on up to Delores where the cattle will graze for the summer.
If you love outdoor activities, there's plenty to do in the summer. Take a jeep ride up to Kennebec Pass where you will see spectacular views or if you have more time on over to Ouray, Jeep capital of America. Mountain bike trails and hiking are plentiful and close by in Delores, Cortez and Mancos. Enjoy a view of Mancos valley and get a perfect view of the aspen leaves changing color up in the La Plata's from a hot air balloon ride in late September in Mancos.
Winter time brings snow and more activities and outside fun. Hesperus ski area offers snow tubing and skiing or go a little further to Purgatory or Telluride Ski Resort which offers some of the best skiing in Colorado. Snow Mobiling at Molas Pass offers spectacular views of pristine mountains.
Drive just 30 minutes away from the cabin and stand on the four corners of Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.
