Our cozy, solar-powered yurt has great views and is very close to numerous family-friendly activities, including Mesa Verde National Park (2.5 miles to entrance). Phil's World bike trails are close by, and you're just minutes away from the towns of Cortez, Dolores and Mancos. Guests are welcome to explore the property during their stay- plenty of trails to explore right outside your door! This is a great destination for couples, solo adventurers, and small families.

The space

Nestled on a ridge covered in juniper and sage, this yurt offers a picturesque, private space---without being too far from the many attractions southwest Colorado has to offer. Guests can explore the countryside and enjoy the beautiful evening sunsets, with views of Mesa Verde and the Sleeping Ute Mountain to the west. While the yurt has a 'rustic' feel to it, guests can still enjoy a warm bath or preparing a meal with their friends and family.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the property.

Interaction with guests

Molly and Dylan will be available to answer any questions you may have and make recommendations for things to do and see in the area. Guests can check themselves in, and there is a manual available to familiarize yourself with the specifics of the yurt. The owners are just a phone call away should you need anything during your stay.

Other things to note

Our yurt accommodations are eco-friendly, since we rely mostly on solar power for electricity and hot water. We welcome questions about "how things work", and can make recommendations if guests are interested in pursuing solar power in their own homes. *Guests should be aware that on successive cloudy days the water tank may not heat up to a comfortable bathing temperature--Doesn't happen very frequently here in sunny Colorado, but we want to be as transparent as possible.

We ask that our Coyote Ridge guests be mindful of the particulars of yurt living. Power source information (solar water heater, propane appliances) will be available onsite, and you will need to familiarize yourself with them in order to ensure a comfortable stay. Please message us if you have any questions prior to booking (or during your stay). While we welcome your exploration of the property, we expect you to respect fenced boundaries and not to trespass onto adjacent private properties. Friendly dogs are allowed, but they're not allowed to roam freely on the property. They may not stay in the yurt while guests are away. They may not sleep on yurt furniture. We ask all guests to remove their shoes while inside the yurt.

I highly recommend staying with Dylan and Molly if you are in the Cortez area. The Yurt is very close to Mesa Verde Park and very comfortable. Dylan and Molly are wonderful hosts offer a very unique and memorable experience if you are traveling to the area.

Our stay at the yurt was great! It is just minutes from Mesa Verde and downtown Cortez. I am glad we chose the yurt over other local hotel options. If you want to check out the Southwest, make sure to stay at the yurt - it was perfect for two people and easy to access!

This was a unique stay for my family. My two girls enjoyed the yurt and exploring the property. The patio was a great spot to sit and enjoy the beautiful views. It was clean and cozy and a mile away from Mesa Verde. Molly responded right away to any questions I had. I would recommend this spot for any family interested in trying something fun.

The yurt was everything it was advertised to be. Communication was very easy and we really appreciated the short instructional video before we arrived. The location was very convenient, right off the highway between Cortez and Mancos, near the park entrance for Mesa Verde.

We had a great stay at the yurt. Everything was explained in advance and we found things easy to use and straightforward. We enjoyed walking around the property. There were great views of the sunset. Dylan and Molly responded very quickly to our check-out question and were very welcoming. My girlfriend and I would recommend this location for weekend travelers or others looking for something close to Mesa Verde Park, but scenic also.

The yurt was very comfortable for two people. There was a beautiful view from the front. The hosts were very accommodating and left no need unfulfilled. We visited Mesa Verde, Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley, Durango, Aztec Ruins, and Chaco Culture and found this to be a great central location.

We are world travelers ourselves, committed to providing guests with unique, pleasant accommodations while they visit our hometown of Cortez, Colorado. We are proud of our yurt property; We built the deck, installed the flooring, solar power, appliances, etc. all by ourselves---a true labor of love! Here are five things we can't live without: coffee, books, sun-showers, podcasts- and good boots.
