The hosts are very kind and friendly, making you feel at home during the stay. The common area downstairs is a nice touch as it gives the opportunity to interact with other guests while you make coffee (should you so choose). The view is incredible with a patio to sit on while you look over the valley.Kelsey9/26/2020
The place is great. The house is super nice, spacious, and clean. One of the best places I have ever stayed in.Almukhtar8/06/2021
Hostess with the Mostess! JanElle was fantastic, providing great conversation, excellent breakfasts and a very clean space! Would absolutely stay again.Samantha3/24/2020
Great space to enjoy a great place. Located in a quiet farm community you are still only 20 minutes from the Mesa Verde park entrance, 7 minutes from one of Phil’s World mountain biking trailheads, and just a few minutes away from restaurants and grocery stores including a Walmart. At the home we enjoyed watching the deer and blue birds, playing games in the large kitchen space, and the kids loved the tire swing and toys. There was a lot of space for having private areas and plenty of beds. The beds were relatively comfortable and the home was clean. Our biggest pros were location and amount of space and our only complaints were small toilets, no smoke detectors we could see, and a couple rooms that were hard to cool. The hosts are phenomenal and answered all our questions quick and easy. You should know that there are others that live in the building but the space is well separated and you won’t even know they are there. Their accommodations are completely separate. I would recommend you consider this space if you are bringing a large family and especially if you want moderately separate spaces for multiple families.Emily5/19/2022
STOP. If you’re thinking of booking elsewhere, stop. This is the place to stay.
I booked at the last minute, but JanElle and her family were so welcoming and accommodating. The place is close to Mesa Verde NP, but you could come here just for a vacation.
Located on a large property (farm?) there are sweet touches like bottled water and snacks in each suite, a game room and kitchen. In the common area and even a tire swing outside for the kids. We saw deer across the street last night and a million stars.
The hosts were also incredibly helpful in recommending local restaurants and breakfast was amazing.
We stumbled on this listing out of necessity, and will be back by choice. You won’t be disappointed.Christina7/28/2020
This place was awesome. Great location for Mesa Verde. Plenty of room for 6 people, 2 private rooms, and a great common room downstairs. Also a really cool mountain view from the front porch with some chairs. Nice and quiet, very clean, would highly recommend!Matt5/20/2022
This place is in a great location! Currently seeing some renovations, but quite the ample space and great for large groups. There are some other tenants on property and no washer/dryer. However, the big open space on the main floor is very enjoyable and a great view out the front!Russell8/30/2021
Wonderful airbnb with a nice view on the mountains. It’s really cute, we played piano and had talk in front of the fire.Fabien3/23/2020
This place will not disappoint you! JanElle and her family are amazing wonderful kind souls! They went above and beyond to make sure we got the best experience durning our stay. JanElle was in constant contact with me weeks before our arrival we had a million questions and she was sure to answer and figure stuff out for us. We loved the extras we added to our stay. The murder mystery dinner was a blast and her family came and sat in the heat and kept score and set up a cornhole tournament. Cause ya know we are a bit competitive our family was able to get closer and connect and relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The lake was just a 20 minute drive and there was plenty to do. We will definitely be having our next family reunion here again. Book this place for an amazing experience ❤️Maree8/16/2020
Had a wonderful time at JanElle’s place! A perfect stay to come back to after the day exploring Mesa Verde National park! We saw a beautiful sunset and some deer from the porch to end the night!Samantha8/30/2020
The place was absolutely perfect for our needs - a suite of rooms that easily slept mom & dad & 3 full grown kids comfortably - could have even fit 2 more in a pinch! Breakfast was amazing! The view from the front porch is beautiful. We were just sorry we couldn’t stay longer to enjoy the ping pong, corn hole & foosball!Scott5/24/2020
We stayed here to visit Mesa Verde and it was perfect! Super spacious, way close to the park, spotless, beautiful countryside views, and had everything we needed. Definitely would recommend!Parker9/04/2021
The Mountain View Lodge was a lovely property, and proved to be a choice location while traveling through Cortez. The Wranglers Roost was plenty comfortable for our overnight stay - bedding options, space, and value were a win. We greatly appreciated the service and offerings JanElle and Todd provide, and we'd look forward to an opportunity to stay again while in the area.Ryan3/15/2022
We had an wonderful trip. The house is very nice and spacious, lots of room to move around. The Owners are amazing and gave some great local food recommendations. We were taking a snowboarding trip in Colorado and the this house was an amazing place to relax at after coming back from the mountain.Cole1/03/2022
Jannelle is the perfect hostess! great communication, clean, well decorated rooms, even delicious breakfast! would definitely stay again!Mark5/21/2021
We stayed in the Wrangler's Roost which was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the hospitality. My kids loved the game room, huge yard, and playground set! We also loved the wonderful breakfast, it was homemade and amazing! I highly recommended Janelle's Airbnb!Cheryl6/25/2020
JanElle is an excellent and kind host. We felt as we were at home. Her place is an AMAZING and AWESOME place to stay.Angie Lucia7/19/2021
JanElle's place feels so cozy! The rustic Americana vibe just makes you melt when you've been traveling all day. We had to make a last-minute reservation, but JanElle was super accomodating!Shane4/20/2020
Wow, what a wonderful stay! JanElle should have a super host status, they went far and beyond what was written on the website-- cooked gourmet breakfast with extra portions for my hungry boys, brought printer from her house so we can print some paperwork and even made me a batch of her signature apricot jam to take home with me. The house was so spacious, hosts don't leave there, but there were other rooms for occupants with shared kitchen and playroom. We didn't feel crowded at all, hosts even separated us for breakfast because of Covid 19 scare. My boys LOVED the space-- there were so many toys there in a separate playroom, we didn't see them because they were so busy playing. Overall, the best stay ever, we will recommend it to all our friends and would love to come back!Veronika7/24/2020
Our group had a great time. Plenty of space for us all and very functional for everything we did. View from the front porch is worth the trip. Grab a cup of coffee and relax!Todd11/03/2021
Such a fun unique stay! Great value, especially for families. Our private “suite” was very roomy— 2 private bedrooms plus another semi private space with a single bed, plus a large entry hall and living room! It felt like an entire 2 bedroom apartment. Breakfast was amazing and really contributes to the warm hospitality. We enjoyed our conversations with the hosts and learned a lot about the area. The views are beautiful. We played some ping pong and a board game. It was nice to see a true family business with the kids pitching in too. A great Airbnb experience. Highly recommended!Allison6/29/2020
The hospitality here was among the best i've ever had. The hosts were great, and their breakfast was amazing.Aaron7/18/2020
This was the perfect stop for our group of 3 families- including 7 kids! Our kids only wanted to hang out at the house instead of doing all the amazing things offered around Mesa Verde. The large gorgeous front yard was perfect for soccer, football, or anything else our kids could conjure up. The game room was also a huge hit. Clearly, the hosts have kept families and kids in mind when staying here, and we appreciated it!Elizabeth4/09/2022
We loved staying here! Dolores is such a fun, cute little town and the house was situated in a great spot for seeing all the sights we wanted to hit.
The house was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The kitchen and bathrooms were extremely well stocked and there was plenty of extra bedding and things all around. The kids LOVED the toy room and we loved that we could shut the door and get some peace and quiet while they played. They spent most of the time on the playground, tire swing, or watching for deer on the porch. We had plenty of space in the kitchen (2 large tables), and loved that we could have a space for each family we were traveling with. We spent delightful evenings on the porch, and would love to return.
The only thing on our wish list that was missing was a washer and dryer.Mindy8/15/2021
Great stay with amazing amenities and the extra touch! Diamond in the rough! I would stay here again and recommend to anyone coming to the area!Timothy8/09/2020
Great home for large families or groups. Everything you need is provided, JanElle was quick to respond to our questions. The kids loved the activity room with all the toys and the view is amazing from the front porch. We spend many morning s and evening’s sitting outside. Our whole family enjoyed the trip.Manuela6/17/2021
