"Luna Mesa" a beautiful hidden gem. Please note in our efforts to provide a safe stay we require guests, family, and friends to be vaccinated for Covid and we have been vaccinated. We follow strict Covid cleaning protocols as well. The contemporary straw-bale steel post and beam owners’ home with an upstairs queen suite for guests (the Mesa Verde Vista Upstairs Queen Suite), and a guest casita/cottage (the Moon Dancer Casita), and owners’ art studio is situated on 17 private acres at the base of Mesa Verde National Park. The unique southwest property with its adobe walled gardens and spectacular forever views of Mesa Verde, the Mancos valley and La Plata mountains will gift the traveler with memories of Colorado at its best! Relax after your day touring ancient pueblo cliff and pit dwellings in Mesa Verde National Park or exploring canyon and mountain trails by foot, snowshoe, ski, mountain bike, ATV, jeep, or snowmobile. The lakes and rivers nearby are to be enjoyed by boat, kayak, canoe, or rod. The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge train depot is just 40 minutes away and the historical mining towns of Durango and Silverton will have you stepping back in time. The Mesa Verde Museum, Canyon of the Ancients Cultural Museum Center and the Cortez Cultural Center are excellent for education about the Ancient Pueblo People who left their mysterious mystical ruins for us to visit. There are so many wonderful things and places to experience and explore you'll be happy to know your hosts have lived in the area for 31 and 46 years and will happily help you plan your excursions in the Four Corners region. After your full day relax at "Luna Mesa" and enjoy the luxury Queen "Mesa Verde Vista" Room Suite and the Hot Spring Tub. (Please note: Pets are not allowed in the "Mesa Verde Vista" Upstairs Suite due to the special Cherry Wood Floors and Navajo Rugs.) The forever views are beautiful day or night with a luminous moon or dark sky milky-way stars and planets so bright you will want to reach for one and make a wish. There are excellent restaurants and entertainment within a short drive. As a "Mesa Verde Vista' room guest, should you like breakfast before you leave for your day of exploring travels, we will make a previously arranged gourmet breakfast for an additional fee. We will also give you easy directions to the local extremely popular favorite cafe known for wonderful organic and local food, baked goods, and locally roasted coffee, the "Absolute Bakery Cafe". "Luna Mesa" - make it your perfect hidden gem central location on your map as you explore the beautiful southwest Four Corners Colorado region!

10/10 Exceptional

It was wonderful to stay here. The homeowners are always communicating with you, and giving you information on the area and what to do. Definitely worth the money and time. The amenities in the home/suite are very good and they really take care of their home. The hot tub is a perfect addition to it and being outside watching the stars as you relax is a perfect touch for a couples getaway.

The home is unique in construction and very tastefully decorated. Location was excellent for going to Mesa Verde National Park. (It would be hard to get closer.) It is located on 17 acres so ver peaceful. Most importantly, the hosts could not be more sweet and accommodating.

We highly recommend this property. Rhonda and Dennis were exceptional hosts. Everything was extremely clean. We felt more like extended family than paying guests. We could see Mesa Verde from our bedroom window. Will definitely be coming back
