“Heaven on Earth!”

This place is amazing! Beautiful loft with gorgeous views. Being from Florida I was worried when it said there would be no air. No air was needed. Every day was gorgeous breezes with the windows open. Each night the coonhounds would bay and sometimes you could hear the horses whinny. Francie was so nice. We cannot wait to go back.

Thank you so much for staying at the ranch on your vacation. It was my absolute pleasure to have you as guests and so happy that you had a good time. Hope Apple my hound with her squeaky howl allowed you some rest. I always try and get them to bed by 9 PM. Looking forward to your return. Best, Francie

“Great experience, convenient location, hope to stay here again sometime soon”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a great place to stay! I won't ever have to get up early to see another sunrise again--it could never top the ones we saw from the loft above the barn. I went downstairs and outside to take pictures but the view wasn't as good so back to the loft where i could watch it from bed.
Our teenage daughter wanted to stay in a cabin and the rentals by the river were $350 a night so I looked for the next best thing. We had been in the loft all of 5 minutes when my daughter turned to me and said "thanks dad" and gave me a big hug. That was worth the whole trip. Very convenient to Durango and Mesa Verde.
Francie was/is an excellent host. We loved getting to spend some time with her and her 4 hound dogs.
It is country living--the ranch is on well water. The water coming out of shower has a sulfur odor but it isn't going to hurt anything. There is filtered water for drinking.
If/when we go again--we would choose the loft over the cabin mainly based on the 2nd story views

I am so happy you had a great time at the ranch. I am lucky that I can share the beauty of the ranch with others. When I am up in the loft I always am amazed by the views. Better than what I see. I have put a sulphur softener in now so hopefully the odor will be diminished. I do hope you will come back and it will be great to see you and your family again. Best, Francie

Out of the way but well worth it! Great views, Animals, and great accommodations! If you like the country this is well worth renting. I was also happy I could help Frances instead of giving my money to a big name hotel. Renting here you get more value for that money too.
The place was well kept. everything in working order. TV is Basic but adequate. A nice apartment over an horse barn. In the middle of great views. The shower water is well water but manageable. No AC but with the windows open I was fine and I need my AC. I highly recommend this Loft to anyone!

“Perfect peaceful retreat, wonderful views, so relaxing”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Such a wonderful barn to stay in with our family - perfect to relax after a day sightseeing in local area! Just make sure to pick up food and supplies in local town before heading out to the barn and there are no shops nearby. But the peace is part of the charm of this place, we loved it and would go back again.

“Amazing stay on a working horse farm!”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband, son, and I stayed here for five nights. We couldn't believe how spacious the place is. It has incredible views on all sides. The bedroom faces sunrise and we watched sunrise with beautiful horses prancing in the fields. Francie, the owner, and Trevor, the foreman, were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The place is quiet and secluded, but close enough for all the attractions in Mesa Verde and Durango. We were so sad to leave, but happy we had found this place and have wonderful memories. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed spending time at this working horse ranch. It was close enough to Durango and nearby hiking that we could enjoy all the area had to offer. It was fun to watch all the activity on the ranch! Our city dogs loved the freedom of running safely off leash, experiencing life as a ranch dog! Our 2 year old golden retriever didn't want to leave!
