Upon Reflection

5 on June 26, 2015

Showing our vacation pictures to friends, reminded us of our great stay at Sundance Bear in the adorable log cabin. Our friends had more questions about our visit there than any other place we went. We explained to them the weather was bad but we didn't care. We felt like we were on top of the world, with beautiful views in all directions in a cozy warm cabin. Bob and Sue were delightful host and even JD their cat took a liking to us! If it wasn't so far from Georgia, we would go often and our friends would come too.

A week to remember!

When you ride a motorcycle (or trike in our case) you never know how the property owners of a B&B are going to react. Bob and Sue were gracious, accommodating and above all a genuine pleasure to be around. Along with all that they offer what is hands down the most impressive views of BOTH Mesa Verde and the La Plata mountains. Thanks to both of you for a memorable stay.

PERFECT inn for our vacation!

Bob and Sue made us feel at home and gave us the perfect balance of privacy and pleasant company... they have a great lodge on beautiful picturesque land, in proximity to all our vacation destinations (Mesa Verde, Durango, Telluride). This inn is a destination in and of itself. Loved our breakfast chats and sharing time with the pets, especially Morris (he shared his room nicely).

We wnet back !!!

This was our second stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast located just outside of Mancos, CO. It was wonderful to arrive at the lodge mid-afternoon and have time to relax and chat with Bob and Sue before going into town for our dinner. The hospitality was wonderful, our room was comfortable, and breakfast was a delight, The grounds are gorgeous and the conversations Bob and Sue engaging and every so informative. Thanks again for sharing your dream with us, We look forward to returning when we are traveling through southwest Colorado.

Sundance Bear in Fall

We had a fantastic time. We rented the cabin so we didn't get breakfast but made our own in our kitchen (the reason for the Met my expectations for the Dining score). You can't ask for a more scenic area to stay in, surrounded by trees that were changing colors that were intermingled with pine trees. We enjoyed our coffee on the deck in the morning and also sat out there and talked until all hours after we got home from hiking Mesa Verde. The close proximity to Mesa Verde is a plus. The cabin was clean and well supplied with anything you could think of. All we added was some food. We can't wait to visit again.

Bob and Sue were very friendly, everything was above our expectations. The breakfast was super, even as the company. If you are at Mesa Verde, stay with Bob and Sue.

The Most Welcoming of Inns

5 on August 12, 2012

Sundance Bear Lodge was the nicest inn we have ever stayed in. The hospitality shown to us by Bob and Susan combined with the gorgeous setting and lovely breakfasts made it very hard to leave. We'd return in a heartbeat and miss it already!

Like staying with good friends!

My granddaughter (12) and I stayed at Sundance Bear for two delightful nights. Bob and Sue treated us like dear friends and the breakfasts were awesome! We stayed in the Lodge which is so beautiful and peaceful. Even the cats welcomed us home at Sundance Bear! A bonus for us was meeting neighbors at a potluck gathering in the garden - such fun! We would love to come again. Sydney and Haley
