“House is OK, owner is not”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived to our rental house and everything was in order, cute little place. The 2 small beds are just that small.
Everything went well until my cousin, 65 year old who is a recent cancer survivor showed up unexpectedly. We were so glad he could meet us as he has been bed ridden for many months. The owner TOM, approached my cousin and gave him a very hard time about being there. My cousin was very offended that he was approached in such a manner. I spoke with Tom right away and Tom said we had only booked the place for 2 people. I did not know that the owners charged per person and told Tom that. I offered to pay him extra, but he said no that would be OK. The next day as we were leaving Tom came by and was very rude and said he had to charge us for my cousin being there. Tom said we used more utilities and he was going to charge us $70 more.
OK place, but Tom needs to stay away from the guests, he does not have good people skills.

“Perfect family cabin”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family of 4 (2 kids, 5 & 7) stayed here for a week in June, we couldn't have been happier with the arrangements. Quiet setting, with plenty of room for us (including 1 night with an additional 4 people), and the hosts were more than accommodating. Elk in the yard at dusk, hummingbirds in the evening, flowers and great weather the whole time we were there. Thanks again to Tom and Lana for making our stay a very enjoyable one.

This property is as cute as it looks in the photos. Tom and Lana go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is also in a great location for various day trips. Will be coming back for sure!!

I stayed in Tom and Lana's cottage for 3 weeks, and it was the perfect location for a base for day trips all over the area, from Telluride to Durango. The cottage was spacious and very comfortable, and we enjoyed the large yard with privacy and our own BBQ. They took care of all of our needs, and their rates are very affordable.

The only things that were an issue for me were the highway noise, intermittent wifi, and poor TV reception, but all of those things caused me to get out there and off the technology so it all worked out perfectly.

Great location, great place to stay.

It's never easy trying to find a place to stay online, but if anything, the online pics of Lana and Tom's homey cottage didn't quite do it justice. Lots of room, lots of little nooks for everyone to have their own space, plenty of comfy sleeping accommodations, a well stocked kitchen; all of these things and many more contributed to a thoroughly enjoyable stay for us. Our hosts are lovely people and we wanted for nothing. Loved the apple tree right outside the window, the beautiful autumn colors visible on the grounds and the mountain behind the cottage. Not only would we stay there again, we most definitely will. We're already planning a trip back as soon as we can work it out. Even our elderly, persnickety border collie loved it there. Cell reception can be a little spotty, but in my opinion that is a plus! Truly the perfect place to get away from it all and commune with the considerable gifts mother nature has bestowed on this astonishingly beautiful area! Thank you, Lana and Tom!

“Idyllic cottage in the San Juans”

Excellent cottage, much larger than expected. It has 3 beds, 1 bath, and all comforts of home away from home. A little close to the highway for those sensitive to noise. Tom & Lana are really friendly and the place provided most of everything we needed and then some. Excellent for a family. The town of Dolores and Cortez nearby should provide you everything you need so don't overpack. Wifi doesn't work well for phones but a computer/ipad is excellent if you really need it. Has a fully stocked kitchen, gas grill outdoors, a hot tub that we didn't use, and a hammock way back. Excellent stay for Mesa Verde NP and fishing a short distance away. We would definitely come back again!

We didn't see much of Tom and Lana--they like their privacy and so do we--but we enjoyed our one-night stay at their cabin. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. Scenic location, close to Mesa Verde. I'd look forward to a return stay.
