    Cozy Christmas Cottage

    Reviewed by: Joshua on


    This was the perfect place for my wife and dogs to make our home base while I worked for 10 days in Cortez. The house is very clean and cozy (it was decorated beautifully for Christmas during our stay), and it has literally everything you’d need to live in comfortably. It is in the best location, too. City Market is right around the corner (walking distance), and we only had to walk one block up to see the town’s Parade of Lights. There are restaurants and parks that are also in walking distance. Deb was a gracious host who was unbelievably attentive, while also respecting our privacy. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in the area.

    We had a wonderful short stay at the Mesa Cottage. It was nice and cosy on a chilly evening. Everything in the home was well laid out and beautifully decorated. Pubs, restauramts and grocery stores were within walking distance. Mesa Verde was just a short drive. Would definitely love to stop by again for a nice escape from the city.
