We stayed in The Bungalow in late September for 3 nights. We awoke every morning to birdsong and the sun glinting on the lake. The property is a short drive to Mesa Verde National Park which offers many trails with amazing vistas. But back to Willowtail. The hosts, Peggy and Lee, are always available for questions and recommendations. We loved the property so much that we cooked all of our own meals there including BBQ steaks on our first night. Their dog, Beau, took us on walks each morning (I am not kidding...we said "Beau take us for a walk" and he did leading us on a walk on the 60 acre property. recommend 3 nights!

This is a great place nestled in the mountains of Colorado. We came in June with our family and had a great time there. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The cabin was nice and the beds were comfy. We all had a blast and even caught a few fish from the lake. We will be back.

We took our family of 6 here to visit Mesa Verde and enjoy a socially distant vacation. It was wonderful. We had a great time slowing down the pace and enjoying the canoes, the fishing and the Lake House. Peggy and Lee were so accommodating. It was a charming, rustic vacation for all of us.

Beauty abounds in this sanctuary of nature and light. Situated on a small lake on special acreage, Willowtail is place of quiet sanctuary, but with the attractions of Southwest Colorado within close proximity.

I was lucky enough to spend a week in the artistically appointed bungalow. The cozy space was filled with artwork and unique decorations. There was a bookcase stocked with books. While I went there to write, anyone who needs an antidote to the noise and speed of the world would appreciate this time away. You can listen to the coots and hear the many birds (we saw red-winged blackbirds, swallows, and magpies), walk alongside gorgeous gardens, take a canoe out on the pond, or just relax. Delicious homemade jam, bread, fruit, and eggs were in the refrigerator, and the kitchen is stocked with spices and everything you need.You won't regret this time away from the fast pace of everyday life.
