  • Descripción


    We (T.J. and Lisa) are professionals who left Silicon Valley in California to pursue a more adventurous lifestyle. We have two dogs; an Australian Shepherd, Q, and a Golden Retriever, Sophie. We also have three horses; Biskit, a Palamino, Jesse, a Mustang and Gus, a grey Quarterhorse. Workawayers are unable to ride horses due to liability issues. The property sits on 35 acres with 360-degree views of mountains, canyons, and a world heritage site. It includes a meadow, a forest with hiking trails, raised garden beds, a pond, horse facilities, and an art studio. All within 2 miles of the historic town of Mancos, Colorado.

    We are located in Western Colorado, USA, in the Mancos Valley. Mancos is a historical community at 7,000 feet elevation that sits on the cusp of the magnificent La Plata mountains and national forests where you can camp, fish, mountain bike, ski, and hike. Mancos is the gateway to Mesa Verde National Park, a world heritage site. We are also within driving distance of other national parks; Monument Valley, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Hovenweep, and Canyonlands. Durango is a 30-minute drive that includes world-class fly fishing, rafting, and the famous Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Train.

    Public Transportation is not available so a rental car or personal vehicle is best if you want to explore the area. Guests may use a host bike.

    Expectations of others in our home are to display the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. We are kind, gracious and enjoy casual or meaningful conversations.
