        Great time in Cortez!

        We could not have been happier about our stay! Perfect for our family of five. Cabin was so clean and had everything we needed. So nice to sit outside and look at night sky. Janice couldn't have been nicer. Loved our stay!

          Best there is!

          I cannot say enough about this place and the kind hosts, Janice and Keith. I booked this rental along with 6 other nights over the course of an 8 day all American road trip that started in Denver going to Mt Rushmore; then Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Arches National, Monument Valley and Four Corners, spending one night at Stone Turtle Lodges, in Cortez, CO. I booked the wrong date; realized only after we were 2 hours away from Cortez. I got in touch with Janice, who was able to switch my reservation. The cottage was immaculate; one of the cleanest VRBO rentals I've ever been to. Cookies on a plate, welcomed us inside the beautiful cabin. OMG So good! We loved everything about the place; great views, coffee in the morning, peaceful countryside and amazing hosts. The cabin is well built, with beautiful furniture, quilts and art. Four of us stayed comfortably, one night. We would have loved to stay a few more days. I would recommend the La Casita De Cortez for dinner; fantastic!

          5/5 Excellent

            Great place. I’d stay again!
