The casa is a well appointed, full home setting. It offers a cozy ambiance that brings visitors together for a uniquely comfortable experience in a remote setting of 40 acres of pinon and juniper studded canyons and sage flats. Below are the standard amenities you will find awaiting your arrival…
This is a large open shared room surrounded by windows giving a spacious, panoramic view of the entire Montezuma Valley nestled under Mesa Verde Park and the recumbent Sleeping Ute Mountain. Whether prepping food or relaxing after a day of hard play, this will be the most enchanting and sought out spot of the casa experience. The main dining table, along with lounge furnishings affords great conversation along with your luscious meals that can be served from the main bar dividing these two rooms. Your kitchen is fully equipped to handle routine daily activities and preparation.
If your passion is to be outdoors as much as your vacation time allows, you can grill or take your prepared foods to the covered porches that look out over the entire Montezuma Valley with its classic mesa and mountainous geologic formations. Spring and summer garden plantings color up your more immediate surrounds and the sunsets are not to be rivaled anywhere on the planet! If our vegetable garden is producing, we encourage ” u-pick” for an evening salad…..
As you enter the upper level of the casa you will find the television console and another intimate conversation area or movie viewing space. A double size sleeper/sofa and chairs are there for “overflow” dormitory needs beyond the existing two private bedrooms.
In the upper level is a more ” removed” space with a queen bed, nite stand, large chest of drawers and walk-in closet with a private shower/bathroom. The laundry facilities and ironing needs are also conveniently located up here. A private exterior door and mud room allows for a quiet entry into this area if coming home later than others in your party. Bedding is abundant for all weather conditions and sleeping needs, and all sheets are soft and silky Egyptian cotton.
When you awake in this queen size bed with the eastern sun in the window of this smaller room, you will be awe struck. Out beyond you are beautiful valley views, and more immediately are pastoral fields of local ranchers and our small garden. Here we consistently see roaming herds of deer and elk who will often forage right up to your window and patio areas. Open windows in the evening will almost assure you a panoply of eerie songs from our skittish coyote packs. The lower full bath is just outside your door and very convenient to use at all times.
Casa del Sol:
Just outside your door is a separate 400 square foot building that is used as for all manner of activities such as yoga, meditation, writing, music and the like. This area can also function as an “overflow” dormitory, although the main casa will have to provide the bath facilities for these individuals. Dancing and pot lucks and floral arranging have been just a few of the “extras” that have “flashed” in this sun-filled space.
The proprietors have an ongoing pottery studio that could potentially be utilized during your stay. Arrangements would have to be made to facilitate this activity.
