My husband and I stay was awesome!!! We stayed in the main house in the Master Suite. Super clean, relaxing, and got lots for good rest. Alex and Cindi were wonderful and very accommodating, we also enjoyed sitting outside in their beautiful yard for drinks in the evenings. Thanks for the great stay!!

The cabin was very clean, cute, and comfortable. The host could not have been more helpful and cordial. I truly felt welcomed, and I would not hesitate to return. I would love to stay at the owners' cabins in Ruidoso, NM on another trip.

Weekend full of wedding events. We stayed (along with others in the wedding party) at Vara House in the Little Farm House. We ended up having 2 adults and 2 small children (due to multiple changes) and it was perfect. Enough space for the little ones to move around and everyone still get ready. The owners were very friendly and worked hard to accommodate all our needs.

Alex and his wife are very welcome people and will go beyond to make you feel at home. The place is very comfortable and clean. You have everything you need to feel relaxed after you come from work. I recommended the place to my co-workers. I was there twice already. I am looking to go back if we have work around the area again.

Times Square in NYC has nothing on New Year’s Eve with Alex and Cyndi, the wonderful owners of this great guest house. I hope everyone can find a day or two in 2021 to stay with them and experience this great guest house. It’s an American and Texas gem!

Hosting so many guests that got caught up in the winter storm in Garden City was a blessing in disguise to me and Cyndi. We had such a Wonderful time meeting and hosting such Wonderful guests that Glorious eve. We sure hope you all will consider coming back here to VGH simply just to visit again if for no other reason. We enjoyed your company immensely!! God Bless You All in 2021 and Beyond!!

My husband stayed here at the cabins. The cabin was so clean and had everything he needed for the stay. It was so quiet and peaceful. Alex the owner is the best person you will ever work with. He’s so kind and will do whatever it takes to make your stay enjoyable. We truly appreciate everything he did for him to stay there. Thank you!

Thank you SO Much for the Wonderful review!! It was our pleasure to host your husband while he was working near Garden City. We’re glad he enjoyed his stay in Grizzly Lodge. That’s definitely one thing we Love about our small town. The quiet and peacefulness. We hope you two will come back and see us again and also perhaps you’ll stay at our other peaceful location in Ruidoso, NM at our Spotted Owl 🦉 vacation rental. Merry Christmas 🎄 from all of us here at Vara Guest House!!

Awesome amenities and hosts. I had stayed there for business and went back for some R&R. The master suite had a Jacuzzi, were I started my day. Getting to use a great fully stocked kitchen is a big plus. These guys are more than hosts, now they are lifelong friends forever.

Where do I start, it was a snow storm of historic portions in the area and the Vara guest house was on radar. Alex and Cyndi are great hosts, very kind and welcoming. Vary Guest House is well maintained and user friendly. I felt so at home in the main house and had a comfortable stay in one of the RVs. It was clean and had everything I needed. They hosted a awesome impromptu New Years Eve get together and it will last forever in memory. Great time!

My husband works oil field so we bounce around a lot and I've stayed in many different places. Vera guest house is one of the most comfortable at home places I've stayed at by far. The owner Alex is very nice and helpful. The room was very clean and cozy. Big backyard with beautiful gold fish pond and bon fire area. Our room didn't have a kitchen but we had full access to the main house kitchen. The people here are amazing and it makes u feel right at home. They Do Have primium Direct TV channels. I would recommend this place to anybody any day of the week. Free WiFi. And they do have laundry facilities accessible to you for your stay. It's been a pleasure to be able to find this hidden gem
