The Garden Cottage
Charming & Secluded, Right Out of a Fairytale
Ideal for 1 – 4 people
The Garden Cottage is a wonderful surprise in a private setting! Nestled by itself amid lush gardens and wildlife, this charming log cabin has a peek-a-boo view looking East to the private lake and the La Plata Mountains.
"It is not often that something exceeds our expectaions and the Garden Cottage
so far exceeded ours that we were amazed. Rustic ambiance is never sacrificed
for modern convenience and contemporary comfort.
Every detail is worthy of quiet contemplation."
–Gary and Wendy, Tuscon AZ
Indulge yourself or your family in a private holiday retreat where you can rest, paint, read a book, write a poem or take a class.
On the covered deck ... languish in overstuffed furniture, drink fresh coffee or watch the joyous antics of birds. Contemplate a thought, a book or a loved one in the morning light, the immensity of stars, the brilliance of moonrise or the exquisite beauty of rainbows reflecting in water. Eat toast and cherry/raspberry jam. Do a Tai Chi form or some Yoga.
"You could advertise that you have one of the top ten places on earth,
the cushioned chair on the front porch about any sunny morning."
–Donald, Seattle, WA
Snuggle with your sweetheart on a couch in front of the cozy fireplace or on the deck. Feel the gardens thick with the scents of flowers and the blur of hummingbirds. Thrill to delicious fall air, autumn color or huge winter snowflakes followed by sparkling sun.
"An amazing surprise tucked away in Colorado.
The Garden Cottage is like something out of a storybook.
P. S. We caught 53 fish."
–Bob, Oro Valley, AZ
Take your child on an adventure. Go fishing, take a hike, a boat ride. Adventure out to nearby Mesa Verde National Park, take a stagecoach ride in the Mancos Valley or horseback riding in the mountains with "real" cowboys. Study the area's fascinating Indian Culture at the Anasazi Heritage Museum, Hovenweep, Canyon of the Ancients or the Ute Mountain Tribal Park.

"What a great spot! As expected, we've come to the end of our stay and the boys
do NOT want to leave. Either we leave them here with you to fish on the lake everyday
or I have to dig a bass pond at home...."
–Brian and Family, Rochester, MN
