My wife, her friend, and I were fortunate enough to spend a night in the Mesa Verde room at the Sundance Bear Lodge whilst travelling through Southwest Colorado. From the moment we arrived Bob and Sue went out of their way to make us feel welcome, so much so that we actually felt like we were family. Sue even did a load of washing for us which, when you are travelling out of a suitcase for weeks on end, was nothing short of a God send. Their dogs and cats obviously get into the Sundance spirit and also made us feel very welcome. And when our friend advised that she had a cat allergy it was absolutely no hassle for Bob to keep the cats from the main living area. They have great books and list of places in their local area but I suggest you sit and have a chat with Bob And Sue regarding this because they are more than happy to share information on their background and also give great recommendations for dinner. (Olio's, otherwise known as Arborena on Trip advisor was fantastic). Our room was comfortable, clean, and homely and we also enjoyed a great breakfast. Would love to have had more time to spend here was the only downside to our stay. Thankyou so much Bob and Sue from your friends in Australia. Marty, Liz, and Bec.
