About the property

Nestled in the beautiful Mancos valley sits a luxurious private retreat only 4 miles from Mesa Verde National Park. This is a stunning, newly constructed guest house located on 5 acres beside a small pond where an endless flow of colorful birds and wildlife will keep you mesmerized. Relax on your private deck with commanding views of Mesa Verde, the Mancos Valley and the San Juan Mountains. At night the shooting stars seem so close that you feel you can touch them. Luxury appointments accompany your bed and bath with a flex room to accommodate up to four people. This guest home features a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and a welcoming comfortable lounge area with contemporary but cozy furniture. New washer and dryer are at your disposal as well as barbecue grill, and satellite TV.

Mesa Verde National Park is not only in view, it's just a 10 minute drive away. The Anasazi Heritage Center, Hovenweep National Monument, Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and Canyon of the Ancients, are all in the general area, rich with ancient ruins. Visit the local Historic Old West Town of Mancos, where the West still lives. Mancos boasts its fine restaurants, numerous art galleries, fabulous locally roasted Farenheit coffee, and natural food store. A horse drawn carriage ride, horseback riding, milking a cow, are part of the western heritage apparent in this darling town especially when a cattle drive moves thru with it’s local cowboys.

Thousands of nearby acres of public BLM lands are available for, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding along with hundreds of miles of mountain trials for off-road adventures. Nearby reservoirs offer boating and fishing, and the Animas, San Juan and Dolores Rivers are great for rafting and trout fishing. Local guides are available.

Rena Sciturro Wilson purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Rena Sciturro Wilson chose Mancos

I built on this particular property because my 85 year old father lives in his home farther back on the property and it gives me a chance to visit him regularly when I check people in and out.

What makes this bungalow unique

Because my father creates a wonderful garden each summer fresh vegetables are a treat for guests. This Cottages sits in a rural setting but not far from town, mountains, Mesa Verde, fishing, horseback riding, and biking right off of the property.

This cottage is brand new with high end finishes.

Perfect for Couples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week here September 25 to October 2, 2017. The cottage feels new and modern with very good quality features/appliances. We found everything we needed for cooking, relaxing and laundry. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom is great. Rena was a wonderful host. She communicated in a timely manner prior to, during and after our stay. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet her in person, but she checked in on us via text and made some suggestions for fun things to do in the area. There was also quite a bit of information in the cottage about the area. We survived without wifi and probably relaxed more because of it. Our AT&T cell service occasionally let a text come/go through, but for reliable service we had to get closer to Mancos or Cortez. This was a perfect location for exploring Mesa Verde National Park. We also made day trips to Four Corners and did the drive up to Ouray... spectacular! The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad out of Durango is a must do. We highly recommend this cottage for the location, ambiance of the cottage and the beautiful surroundings. Thank you, Rena!

comfortable, quiet ,and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely month at a modern bungalow.

Everything was provided for us except food,

The kitchen was up to date and a joy to cook in with views

of the pond and the mesa.

I would recommend this cottage to any couple

seeking a comfortable quiet and relaxing retreat with

restaurants and lots of art close by in town.

Relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

A great place! Very comfortable and well equipped. No WiFi but a coffee shop located in town provided us access. We did have cell service. And I was glad my husband could disconnect and enjoy this beautiful area. Perfect for wanting to spend time at Mesa Verde; very close. And the town of Mancos has restaurants, local art galleries, and groceries.

I would definitely recommend this cottage.

Peaceful and serene!

  • 4 of 5

This property was a great place to go to get out of the big city and enjoy some peace and quiet. It was conveniently located near Mesa Verde National Park, about 4-5 miles away from the Visitor Center. It's another 45 min. drive into the park from there. It is only 27 miles from Durango, 20 miles to Cortez. Rena was very easy to work with and a very nice host. Fresh flowers and farm fresh eggs awaited us. The inside is finished off very nicely and had everything we needed. The only negative was that there is no AC and even with the 2 ceiling fans and a couple small fans that we brought it did get a little warm a couple of nights due to no breeze. Due to the fire in the Durango area there was a NO Open Burn in place, so sitting outside by the fire pit was not an option. And because of the pond nearby the mosquitos were out, so we did not sit outside too much. This would be a fabulous place in the Spring or Fall. We would recommend it!
