A stay at Willowtail Springs is always a very special experience because it seems to capture the essence of Southwest Colorado, its unique beauty and tranquillity. It slows the pace and calms the mind with views of ranches, meadows, forests, and distant mountains across the clear, glassy lake and of dark mesas under purple and orange sunsets; the scent of...

This place was truly a rare treasure. The lake was calming, birds chirping in the morning was delightful and the house was cozy and spacious all at once. Lee and Peggy were welcoming hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and wished we had had more time to really explore the vast grounds.

What serendipity to stay in this forest cottage by the lake by Mesa Verde! Lee and Peggy have made a warm welcome of Willowtail Springs - from the alpacas that regard you as you arrive to Beau the dog and Bear the cat. We cuddled up by the fire, listened to the rain, and read our books. We took a... More

This B & B was a highlight of our time visiting several National Parks in the area. After a long day exploring the cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde, our cabin, The Lakehouse, was such a welcome spot to "come home" to. Our kids had so much fun paddling the canoes around the little lake in front of our cottage and... More

We stayed here with our two 9 and 10 year old grandchildren. It couldn't have been more perfect. The lake with canoes and biting fish made their visit and the peaceful accommodations made ours. Peggy and Lee were very welcoming and we had everything we needed and more. We really hope to return.

A stunning property with beautiful, well appointed cabins and a gorgeous larger house. Art and antiques, gardens and wildlife, peace and quiet, fishing and canoeing - this place went above and beyond our expectations and was our favorite stay on our trip. The owners Peggy and Lee were awesome and made sure that everything was perfect for our family. We... More

Four of us stayed in the lake house at Willowtail Springs earlier this year when we were out west for 2 weeks. This was by far our favorite place! The house was roomy & well equipped. The location was PERFECT! We stayed 2 nights and wished we had planned to stay more. The owners, Lee and Peggy, are amazingly welcoming... More

Although this was the most expensive stopover on our Road trip, I really think it is worth the money. We stayed in the Bungalow, which overlooked the lake, and you really could just spend hours listening to the various birds in and around the lakeside. This place is set well away from any main roads, so you really get a... More

We rented the Lake house and relaxed there for 3 nights. The kitchen is well equipped and the first floor is spacious. I was surprised that although there are 3 bedrooms there is only one full bath. That would be the weakest point about the house. We liked all the other aspects. This place is really off the road but... More

We booked Willowtail Springs so we could be near various archaeological sites, and it sounded like a pleasant spot. Instead, we found ourselves so tied to the Abode that it was sometimes hard to go off to Mesa Verde and the other sites (by the way, for those interested in the Anasazi sites, even Chaco, you couldn't find a more...
