About this property

Elouisa - Refurbished '57 Schoolbus

Campground in Mancos with kitchenette
Elouisa is a groovy converted schoolbus situated on 35 gorgeous acres in the woods of Southwest Colorado, just 7 miles from Mesa Verde. Complete with kitchenette, super comfy queen size bed,and lots of private space to rest and retreat. Full bath with hot shower and sink and toilet. All private and for your use only. This is one of the most unique airbnb places you may come across! Into the Wild anyone? This bus has been refurbished and made into a cozy home, nestled in the juniper and sagebrush, overlooking Mesa Verde and the town of Mancos. Close to town with still the out in the woods feel! Super cute, comfy and cozy setting! You will love it! It does NOT have running water inside the bus, but there is water for drinking and rinsing in the sink, both in jugs. There is running water (hot and cold) in the bathroom in the nearby building. ;)
Guest accommodations at this campground offer air conditioning. Accommodations all include kitchenettes. Bathrooms include bathtubs or showers.
