Stay on the flank of Sleeping Ute Mountain in historic McElmo Canyon just 40 minutes from Mesa Verde and 20 minutes from the town of Cortez. The Cliff House is built right into the red rock cliff wall of a private red rock canyon alcove with comfortable amenities, internet, nearby petroglyphs and sweeping views down canyon. A perfect place to base yourself for your next creative endeavor or for exploring in the wilds of the four corners.

The space
***Covid-19 Precautions***
We are committed to the safety of our community and of our guests during this uncertain time. Please know the Cliff House receives a full, detailed, professional cleaning between each guest with quality cleaning-agents. We are taking care extra care with surfaces like doorknobs, countertops, and light switches. If you’d like to come to a remote location and get away from it all, you’ll be in good hands. Stay safe and wash your hands!

In addition to being built into sandstone rock, the Cliff House is landscaped with native species that bloom all summer. Around the corner from the house, in another rock alcove, is a little lawn. Enjoy comfortable porch seating with a stunning view.

We purposefully do not provide a TV and hope our space is a nature-inspired respite. That said, we also know you might want to get away and retreat to the Cliff House in order to do some work in-between exploring the Southwest. We have fast, broadband wireless internet with Eero WiFi. Stream music to our Apple HomePod with your iPhone or AirPlay-enabled device. We have a network extender for strong Verizon LTE service.

Guest access
You will have access to our entire cabin home, carport, and a private yard inside a beautiful rock alcove on our property. There is also a tipi on the property that you are welcome to sleep in at no additional charge, if no one else is using it—coordinate with us and we can let you know if it’s available.

Other things to note
A few notes to make sure this is the right place for you:

The property is located down a single-lane, dirt road. It is safe for passenger cars, but drive slowly and watch for critters wild and domestic. Part of the road goes through open range and you sometimes have to patiently wait for cows or horses to move aside (particularly in the winter months).

We are located in a desert, rural area. Expect wildlife on the property (insects, geckos, foxes, deer, marmots, bobcats, mountain lions, and other fun critters). While the house is weather-tight, insects can and do get into the cabin. If the presence of insects might cause you undue concern or discomfort, this might not be the spot for you.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us before booking.

**We offer discounts on longer stays (starting at 3 nights) and even more if you plan ahead (booking at least 4 months in advance)!**
