Times change - and we grow older!

Do you find yourself dreaming about owning a private retreat in the beautiful Colorado mountains? Here is your opportunity to do what we did 20 years ago - we called it "orchestrating our midlife crisis". We left the busy life of California and chose to slow down and de-stress in Mancos, CO. Come, do the same.

2016 marked the end of our B&B service. We do plan to have the Log Cabin available starting April, 2017 in a self-cater mode (see the Rooms detail here). Take a few moments to think about your vacation in the 4 Corners and you’ll recall that slowing down and spending a little more time is a better way to stay here!

We have split the property into 4 parcels for sale. Eight acres with the Guest House were sold a couple of years ago. We have now put the other three on the market. Two lots at the southern end of the property maintain the rural atmosphere and are fully ready to build with road, underground electric and domestic water installed to the lot lines. A 13 acre parcel looks down into Cassidy Canyon with a view of the LaPlata Mtns. to the east. The 27 acre parcel looks west into Sundance Canyon with a view of Mesa Verde and the Sleeping Ute. The premier building sites are invisible from the other lots and the lodge.

We also know that not everyone wants to build a house. We have now listed the lodge with log guest cabin, barn and almost 40 acres plus irrigation water for sale as well. Maybe you would like to operate a boutique B&B? Two rooms in the lodge plus the log cabin make Sundance Bear small in modern times, but great to suppliment income. The season is April to October. Take a look at the tourism web site for the county: Mesa Verde Country.

Or perhaps a large family home or vacation home fits. The lodge is three or four bedrooms. We have always used the downstairs space as a substantial office; it could be any combo of office/family room/bedroom. The house was built in the mid-1980s; we did substantial remodeling when we moved in 1997 and throughout our time in business.

If you are at all tempted – southwestern Colorado is magical, with the weather the best in the state. Come take a look and be mesmerized. Bike, hike, horses, rafting - whether your sport is on wheels, feet or paddles, it doesn’t matter; the 4 Corners region is magnificent territory that all ages enjoy.

Allow yourself to dream!

Come and experience it. Feel the sense of calm and the serenity.

Photos of the View Lots don't do the land justice. Photos can't capture "drop dead gorgeous"! For some a map or picture is vital. Lot #1 with the house has been sold.
