Sundance Bear Lodge is a country style bed and breakfast only 10 miles from the entrance to Mesa Verde National Park and 4 miles north of Mancos, Colorado. Bring your family, your dog and horse to enjoy 86 acres of mesa, forest and canyon just north of town, between Durango and Cortez.
Make our home your "base camp". We have 3 buildings, each with a unique ambiance to match your vacation lodging needs (see our rooms). Consider the custom care of a bed and breakfast instead of staying at hotels near Mesa Verde.
Absolutely, visit the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde and learn the history of these Ancestral Puebloans that built 4 story “apartment buildings” in the 1200s. Marvel at how they accomplished this civilation without metal or a written language.
Then return to Sundance Bear Lodge and escape everything neutral. Find peace for your soul while astride a quarter horse in a high mountain meadow.
With only 2 rooms in the lodge, this is a very casual yet intimate environment. The rooms adjoin but do not connect. Each has its own en-suite bath. The sauna is a step away and the hot tub is on the front deck. Relax in the great room in front of the fire place.
The lodge has two B&B rooms with a magnificent great room, fireplace, and south-facing deck. Rooms have room for two plus en suite full bath. Mancos room is a queen ($135) and Mesa Verde is an oversized queen plus single ($150). Get a discount when you rent both!
The log cabin has the old west ambiance that appeals to couples -- but their children really love it when they get to come along. Queen bed downstairs plus double and sofa in the loft. The small kitchen makes it possible for guests to prepare some or all meals; B&B is an option at extra cost. Winter rates apply Nov-April $175. Summer is $225 for two people and $10 extra up to four. The three decks provide mountain snow caps and Mesa Verde views.
Forest Edge Guest House is for larger groups -- friends or family. Rent the two bedroom Pinion or add Aspen and make it 3 bedroom Forest Edge (2 1/2 bath). Beds are kings and queens; the total house has room for 10 friends. Forest Edge has a full kitchen where everyone can pitch in and prepare a feast. Plus there is a grill on the east deck. Pinion rents for $250 for 4; $10 extra for 2. Forest Edge $340 for 8; $10 extra for 2 more.
Sundance Bear is on over 80 acres of mesa top and canyon. Walk and explore at will. The children will love it and the pets can be of leash if well behaved.
