    The Carlson House is a fabulous place to stay! We loved our three nights there and we should have stayed longer! Lou Anne was wonderfully welcoming and very communicative. We enjoyed the hot tub immensely and took full advantage! Mesa Verde has been on my Bucket List for some time, so if you are going to Mesa Verde you must stay at the Carlson House! We loved the welcoming deer on our first night, and the resident cat "Flash" is so loving! We nicknamed him Morris! Everything is magical here!! One of the BEST rental experiences that we have encountered!! If I could give it more than a 5 I would! Thank you Lou Anne!!

    We had a wonderful stay at The Carlson House. The house was perfect! It was close enough to Dolores where my family is and close enough to Walmart. Love seeing the deer.
