  • Beautiful home


    This house is amazing. Didn’t spend a lot of time at the house as we were out everyday seeing the area. After riding our motorcycles all day, this was such a nice place to come back to and relax. The last day we stayed at the house and enjoyed using the BBQ grill. The house was so clean and Ken and Lou Anne are the best! This is the perfect house for 2 couples. The plush bathrobes for each guest was an added bonus! Will recommend this house to all my friends and family for sure!!!

  • Wonderful Stay


    The pictures don't do it justice. The location and view and serenity of the property are amazing! The space was really clean and everything seemed new. The kitchen was well stocked. We came to Cortez to mountain bike at Phil's World (and Boggy Draw), which was great and in close proximity. We enjoyed the Saturday farmer's market in Cortez, and an outdoor concert in nearby Dolores. The hosts were wonderful, welcoming, and accommodated all of our needs. Great stay!!

  • Awesome place to stay


    Carlson’s went out of their way to make our stay fabulous. They had fresh made brownies, fresh cut flowers and a personal message on the counter as well as all the supplies needed to be comfortable. Mr Carlson stopped by right away to welcome us and give us instructions on the swamp cooler and hot tub. The property was beautiful and very clean. It was near town but out far enough out to be quiet and able to enjoy some of the area wildlife. We would definitely recommend this home.

  • Amazing place in Cortez!


    Stayed at the Carlson House while visiting the area for mountain bike race. Everything was just as advertised :) Clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The place had everything we needed - including a very nice hot tub and hot tub robes! Lou Ann and Ken are great hosts! We'll be back!
