  • The wonderful Mesa Cottage


    Clean, comfortable, and cute! The kitchen was well equipped. The backyard was secure for our large dog. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Convenient location to many attractions. Deb was wonderful to work with. We will definitely stay again the next time we go to Cortez.

  • Great little house


    What a fun house! It was on the small side, but had everything we needed and was close to Mesa Verde. It was clean, updated and well equipped with everything we needed for a nice stay in a great little town.

  • Great stay in Cortez


    The Cottage is a wonderful small house a block of Main Street in Cortez. An original adobe house built in the 20's; the house is full of charm, comfortable furniture, cute decorating, and has a modern kitchen and bath. The beautifully landscaped and fenced backyard includes a gas grill, umbrella table, and sitting areas. We enjoyed sitting outside with a cold drink after our hikes in Mesa Verde and Canyon of the Ancients.

    Deb is a wonderful hostess and made our stay comfortable and worry free. We highly recommend staying at the Cortez Cottage.
