The moment we arrived we were greeted by Lee, who immediately disarmed us with his warm smile and relaxed manner! Then we walked into this home, which immediately made my husband and I wish we lived here! The Lakehouse is a beautiful 2 story cabin located on a very small lake in Mancos, Colorado! The kid in me immediately wanted to explore the many colorful and art filled rooms! There were gorgeous antiques everywhere, and the creativity that went into the careful placement of furniture and art immediately inspired me! In the morning we woke up with this amazing view of the area! There was a Great Blue Heron that seemed to live on this property, which is located on 60 acres! Of course all the amenities wew available: a comfy fireplace, quilts on all the beds, a fresh loaf of bread from a nearby bakery, fresh eggs, fruit, and homemade preserves! We had trails to explore, and canoes available to us as well! To top it all off, Peggy, the creator of this place, invited us to her home and regaled us with true tales of her true adventures in creating this place and taking care of it while providing delicious wine! The only downside, if you could call it that, was that we didn't want to go anywhere else (although Peggy was able to make dinner reservations for us at a wonderful restaurant, Olios, that we would not have been available to go to otherwise)! We hope really that this review is not too inspiring, as we want to have this place readily available to us!
