The unit was the perfect size and layout for our family of five. The location is mere minutes from the entrance to Canyon of the Ancients National Monument and a very short drive to Mesa Verda National Park. It is near enough to town to provide easy access to stores and restaurants while still being just enough "off the beaten path" to be peacefully quiet and provide many opportunities to enjoy the passing deer. The common-area kitchen was clean and well equipped for all our cooking needs. My daughter loved the tire swing out front while my son played the piano in the spacious common-area living/dining room. The host communicated well and made check-in and check-out super easy. We definitely plan to stay here again in the near future!Luke10/06/2021
Wonderful hosts! Wonderful breakfast each morning! JanElle sure does know how to cook! Our rooms were clean and perfect for our stay!Mandie7/04/2020
Talk about some amazing hospitality! This was such a cute setup on a little farm with an awesome views! Jana makes the most delicious homemade muffins and it was so nice to wake up to a homemade breakfast. We felt so cozy here. My son also forgot his stuffed animal there and Jana was kind enough to offer mailing it to us. We will definitely be back next time we are in town!Paige7/16/2020
Excellent host, excellent breakfast, and excellent location. Just 15 minutes from the entrance to Mesa Verde. I highly recommend JanElle’s place.Ricardo3/26/2020
We were looking for a simple place to rest during the night and came across this most wonderful listing ! With an incredible view, very comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast waiting for us in the morning. Thank you very much for our stay, we only regret not staying longerCami6/26/2020
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
A great location with an awesome view! I stayed just for the weekend to visit Mesa Verde and it was the perfect spot. They have good recommendations for things to do and places to eat!Meg4/25/2021
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
Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the mountain views! If you have a large gathering this is a great place to stay.Kathi9/25/2021
Great, spacious lodge for large families. Loved having the game room as part of the house, and the feel of the place if very warm and welcoming with thoughtful decorations. The host is absolutely fantastic, helping with any issues in the lodge and also giving great tips for local activities.Peter1/01/2021
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 really enjoyed our stay here. The house is spacious and comfortable. We had 10 people in our group and we definitely could have fit a few more comfortably. There are even some futons and pull out couches if you need to cram in a few more beyond that.
The hosts were very helpful when needed. The view is amazing. The yard was fun for the kids to play in. They loved the tire swing! We loved that each suite had its own sitting area and TV. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely try to get back for another stay someday.Laurie4/18/2022
We had a great time in the Mesa Verde area staying in the Wranglers Roost. JanElle and Todd were responsive and excellent hosts. The accommodations were perfect for our needs. The location was very close to the National in Park as well as other areas of interest. Unexpectedly we were provided with fresh muffins and a great breakfast on our last day. It was awesome and was a great personal touch. Hope to stay here again in future.Robert9/19/2021
JanElle's place was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We dropped by last-minute yet without much notice yet we were greeted warmly and our space was ready. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the hospitality. Also, our breakfast the next morning was outstanding -- especially the french toast! Highly recommended!Darius6/09/2020
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!Timothy8/09/2020Abigail8/25/2020
My friends and I had a wonderful stay. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in visiting Mesa Verde or southern Colorado in general.Sultan8/19/2021
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
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 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
