This B&B has a very strict cancelation policy. My wife and I had made reservations to stay there recently but our car broke down on the way and the management would not refund us any of our reservation. I'm sure it would have been a fine place to stay, but I cannot in my heart recommend this place to others.... More

SundanceBear, Owner at Sundance Bear Lodge, responded to this review

We are very sorry this happened to these folks. No one plans car trouble and it is never our intent to hurt somebody’s vacation experience. Ours policies are in line with most B&B and are published / agreed with each reservation. Furthermore, we actually do try to make adjustments where possible. But in this specific case, not all was straightforward... More

We were impressed by the beautiful Southwest decorating and friendly hosts, Bob and Susan. We booked the two rooms in the main house for our Colorado trip. Each room had its own bathroom and we felt like we were visiting family. The common area was spacious, comfortable, and gorgeous. We could see Mesa Verde from the deck. Mancos is in... More

Sue, Bob, Chester and Oreo are superb hosts. My boyfriend and I came out for a long weekend and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the cabin and surrounding adventures in the area.

Bob and Sue must be among the best hosts -funny, entertaining, kind, hospitable, intelligent, witty and in short, extremely genial. The accommodation was perfect and set in glorious countryside so peaceful you could feel it. The stars at night so fantastic we felt we could reach out and touch them. Coming from England, we found Sundance Bear the perfect holiday.... More

"Just act like you're staying at your grandparents" is what Sue and Bob told us, and that is how it felt. What a wonderful stay we had at the Sundance Bear Lodge!

Only a couple of miles away from Mancos and Mesa Verde, this B&B offers a very comfortable cabin where we stayed for 1 night. Shame we did not stay longer as the night ended up being the most expensive one of our holiday. We then realised that we should have probably stayed in one of the rooms in the main... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sundance Bear Lodge in Mancos, CO is near Mesa Verde National Park and 30 min. From the Durango Silverton narrow gauge railroad. The foodies in the group will love eating in Durango, at Kenebec, or Olio's! SBL sits on a mesa top with 360 degree views. We have 2 B&B lodge rooms,a log cabin and Forest Edge (guest House). 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. Come play in the great outdoors: lots of history with the Anasazi culture and cliff dwellings -- Mesa Verde is a World Heritage Site. Come to hike, bike, motorcycle and more; lots of day trips with Mancos as your base camp. Open all year. We will bet - you'll want to stay one more day!
