It had been about 7 years since we stayed at Echo Basin and at that time it had different owners. This time around we had our grandkids with us and stayed in one of their regular cabins. It was no frills--microwave and a small fridge, no stove. As there was a restaurant onsite we thought no problem, we'll just grab some meals there. Big change since last visit and one that is unfortunately not advertised on their website. The restaurant is only open Wed.-Sat. from 6-8 PM. . We only managed one meal there during our 5 night stay. It was excellent--kudos to the cook.
The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub we enjoyed the view from the cabin's deck(see photo). They should invest some of their money in new mattresses and sheets. Also bring beach towels. You can't get towels for the pool. One corner cut too many IMHO.
I love the area, but next time we'll look at other places to stay.
Things to do while there: Jeep /Train combo Durango/Silverton RR, Mesa VerdeNP, whitewater rafting, Mancos Stagecoach Dinner Ride, horseback rides. Eat breakfast at Mancos Bakery, Eat dinner at Millwood Restaurant, Mancos.
