This was the greatest place we had the opportunity to spend a couple of nights during our bucket list trip. Bob and Sue were so very special and made us feel like family. The lodge and the rooms were absolutely beautiful. We had delicious breakfast each morning, shared with the company of Bob and Sue. There is not enough words...

This is wonderful B & B. We experienced a most delightful sunset in the shadow of Mesa Verde and were able to relax just like at home. Our accommodation was fantastic, and Sue and Bob are delightful. We enjoyed our time with them, and they even got up early to ensure we had breakfast and snacks before our early morning...

We spent a few nights in Mancos at the Sundance Bear Lodge in the summer. It was a wonderful place to stay while we visited Mesa Verde National Park. The proprietors were lovely, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the area, and the food was delicious. It is close to Durango and Mesa Verde, a great place to stay if...

Thanks so much for the kind words. We've been in business for 19 years and enjoy meeting all of our guests. Each year we learn a little more about Mesa Verde ; 2016 was a difficult year for the park with Spruce Tree House closed. This is closing the holiday (Dec.) special event too. Overall I think the park did...

We were on a roadtrip, so we could only stay one night, but it was SO totally worth it! Bob and Sue are the best hosts on this planet. So friendly, nice and full of smiles. The setting is better than any postcard. To be able to see the milky way at night is really something and a great plus!...

The hosts of the Sundance Bear Lodge, Sue and Bob, were welcoming, knowledgeable, and very hospitable. Staying there was like having our own personal tour guides to the area! They provided us with several valuable "tips" on navigating Mesa Verde National Park, which is located just minutes away. Sue's breakfasts are amazing! We would recommend their home to anyone, and...

We just spent four nights at the cabin here. We brought our mountain bikes, four horses and kiddos. I can't say enough about the hospitality of Bob and Sue.

Guests can select their preferred ambiance and level of service. Forest Edge is your optimal vacation rental, with no special check in/out days. Families welcome; bring Fido & Trigger, too.
