The vacation property in particular and the neighborhood generally has incredible views of the San Juan Mountains and Mesa Verde. The sunrises and sunsets are usually breathtaking. The rentals are a 30-minute drive to the Mesa Verde Visitor Center at the entrance to the National Park. The cabins are 15 minutes from the city of Cortez, which is host to quite a few yelp-recommended restaurants, and 10 minutes from the town of Dolores. You will need a car for transportation from the property to Mesa Verde or Cortez. However, if you're interested in relaxing, walking the land, and cooking gourmet food with organic fresh-picked produce, you can just stay put at the cabin.
