Welcome to Mesa Verde National Park and the Four Corners – home of the Ancestral Puebloans

Among the best kept secrets in the land of Mesa Verde is this group of bed and breakfast lodgings.  Tucked in the mountains and valleys of this mystic land outside the park, you can experience Southwest Colorado in country elegance at these wonderful B and Bs.

Mesa VerdeOnly minutes from the entrance to Mesa Verde (National Park and World Heritage Center) and close to the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, we will do our best to share our love of the southwestern culture, hospitality, the rich history and archaeology.  The Cliff Dwellings at Mesa Verde represent the only National Park in the US dedicated to history and culture, not just trees and scenery, although those are in abundance as well.

Stay longer than you planned – there’s more to do than you can imagine.  Extend your glimpse of this fascinating history with other day trips to Hovenweep, Canyon of the Ancients, the Anasazi Cultural Center, Ute Mountain Tribal Park (the “other” Mesa Verde”) — too many to name.  All provide a look at how people lived with the land 800- 1,000 years ago.

Then contrast that with the “old” west of “only” 100+ years ago — the narrow-gauge railroad, stage coach, and the stories of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Louis L’Amour western fiction.  Imaginations run wild!
