I was pleasantly surprised at our sweet and charming accomodations at Willowtail Springs! I couldn't believe how peaceful it felt! The grounds and our bungalow allowed me some much needed rest, recuperation and inner peace. The energy on the property is calming and left me longing for more! I can't wait to go back for my next time out from life to rest, reflect, slow down and enjoy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
What a wonderful time we had in The Lakehouse at Willowtail Springs! It was perfect! My kids loved the cabin, they didn't want to leave! It was so cozy and perfect for our stay while visiting Mesa Verde. Lee and Peggy are awesome, such great people, and they have provided a beautiful gem of a B & B for those traveling in the area. We had everything we could wish for at Willowtail Springs - peace, quiet, beauty, relaxation and fun - the canoes on the lake were a great source of fun for our girls, 12 and 10. Thanks again - we hope to come back someday!
Had a wonderful stay at the Bungalow cabin. Peggy and Lee have created a little piece of heaven on earth. My husband and I have not been that relaxed in years. The view from the bungalow is so picturesque, the sun on the lake with the mountains in the background. Just lovely. The frig was stocked with farm fresh eggs, fruit, wonderful bread, just everything you need to get you going in the morning. The cabin itself is such a great mix of quirky and quaint. I can't wait to stay there again!
Unbelievably beautiful location, a little off the road but made it so quiet and bucolic. Make sure to get the map the owners send you, otherwise it can be difficult to find the first time. Rooms are decorated with antiques and artwork with love. Our bungalow faced the large pond which had many birds and a superb view. Queen bed was comfortable and kitchen had just about everything you might need. There is no daily housekeeping which was fine with us.
Very comfortable place to stay but the best part was the fresh eggs, homemade bread and raspberry jam, good coffee and juice available for breakfast. Oh, and the friendly cat and dog just added to the charm. Would stay here again.
If you truly want to have a country get-away place, this is it, and in a good way! You can really relax and unwind here. Our host Lee, made us feel very welcome. He gave us the grand tour, including the stocked refrigerator for breakfast, and then left us alone. We stayed in the Garden Cottage. It is a beautiful rustic fashioned cabin. We stayed here with another couple, and when we split the price, there is no place you will find a better value! We look forward to staying here again. We highly recommend it.
Breakfast is not made for you, but wonderful supplies are left in your cabin. Unless you ask for any assistance, you are alone in a lovely cabin on the lake (Bungalow). The grounds are really lovely, with meandering gardens and canoes on the lake. The owners are very sweet and helpful.
We had the opportunity to stay at this lovely place for a couple of nights. It is such a charming place with gracious hosts/owners. Two nights was not enough! The Absolute Bakery and Olios restaurants are outstanding local dining options.
Not only is the location of Willowtail Springs in a private, quiet location, the cabins are also situated for privacy and solitude. We stayed in the Bungalow and were comfortable from the moment we walked in the door. Lee and Peggy were enjoyable, helpful and very respectful of their guests. The mornings and evenings were spent watching the wildlife over the pond and floating about in the canoe.
An excellent retreat; restful & scenic. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful gardens, the lake & mountain view from the bedroom & dining room, & the playful & chatty ducks. And there could not be warmer or more pleasant hosts than Peggy & Lee. We were discussing our next visit before we left.
Perfect stay. Lovely pond with good fishing for the kids. Also lots of bird life. Cabin well appointed, private. (Garden Cottage) Hosts welcoming and helpful. Simple breakfast items provided, which suited us fine. Would definitely return!
The place was private and beautiful. Two of the cabins overlooked the lake and coots. We took the canoe out and fished, and even caught fish (catch & release). Accommodations were very interesting with wonderful art of owner all about. Nice breakfast & snack items in the refrigerator, good coffee too.
The stay at Willow-tail Springs was great. Everything you need for a relaxing time is there. The rooms are clean and furnished well. The lake is stocked with lots of fish. Most of all Peggy and Lee go out of there way to make you feel at home.My only regret was having to go home. There are loads of wildlife to view right from the lakeside deck. The flower gardens are all over the many trails to stroll around the area.I recommend this as a great place to get away from the busy world and just relax.I will never forget the 2 weeks a willow tail.
I returned to Willowtail Springs for a second visit after doing an intensive course on Anastazi culture and pottery. I stayed in the Garden Cottage this time, the perfect place for a solo get-away (or a romantic tryst!) It has a peek-a-boo view of the wonderful lake and is surrounded by the unique pinion and juniper woods, much of it saved from the pine bark beetle by the diligent and caring hosts. The birds are the only ones that can be accused of being noisy! What a great place to rest and rejuvenate in a world that is so frenetic and busy. Every need is thoughtfully taken care of. And when you need other sustenance beside the farm-fresh eggs and home made bread and jam that is provided, Zuma, an organic grocery/coffee shop/Cafe is 15 minutes away in Mancos as is Olio, a wonderful bistro-type restaurant. The charm with which owners Peggy and Lee have decorated the abodes and the gardens shows the mind of the artist Peggy. Be sure to take a look at her work.
We wanted to go to Mesa Verde to see the ruins and were looking for a nice place to stay. The owners have great attention to detail on the property and in the cabins (down to handmade and organic soaps and lotions). We played chess, my daughter read all of the children's books (of which there were dozens), and cooked a lot of our own meals (which saved hundreds of dollars and is a much healthier choice). The evenings were serene on the deck overlooking the pond. Sleeping accommodations were fantastic. In fact, I bought new bedding when I got home to match the bed at the lake house. The owners were there if you needed them, but were not intrusive. We felt completely at home. We will definitely be back.
After spending too many hours overworking ourselves in the corporate world, my boyfriend's and my stay at the Bungalow brought us so much peace and relaxation! We decided to stay on the property for our entire visit instead of sightseeing. It's just to hard to leave a place of beauty like this. Every detail was perfect, from the gardens of Irises and sound of beautiful birds to the artistic touch inside the Bungalow making it extraordinarily homey. Lee and Peggy have created such an amazing place to escape to. I would recommend a stay here to anyone! ~ Kelly
Willowtail Springs is an incredibly special place - the cabins are fully adorned with antiques, plants, rugs, pillows and throws, beautiful original art work hangs on the walls, the gardens and lake and views are fabulous, and the creative and caring spirits of Peggy & Lee fill the property with peace and tranquility. A MUST on your places to stay!
What a beautiful and peaceful place to relax and get away. Peggy and Lee have created an oasis. If you need a place to de-stress and calm your life, this is the place to go.
The loving care of a master gardener and the heart and mind of an artist are evident in this beautifully maintained, thoughtfully designed, well provisioned and spotlessly clean hideaway. With attention to every detail for a comfortable and memorable experience, this place is simply wonderful.
We had a wonderful fall weekend in Mancos and the highlight of it was not Mesa Verde, which was great, but our stay at Willowtail Springs and its delightful and helpful proprietor, Peggy. The lakeside cabin was just wonderful and we wondered why we were not just staying the whole week since there was not enough time to see the local sights and enjoy all the cabin and its surroundings had to offer. We will be back. The Baber and Kalinowski Families
Our stay at Willowtail Springs was one of the most relaxing stays we have experienced in recent memory. It made our 41st wedding celebration exceptional. I would highly recommend a few days at Willowtail to experience nature at its best.
For several years now, we have gone to Willowtail Springs for long weekends to celebrate our anniversary. It's a perfect place to relax and be together: beautiful, peaceful, and welcoming. We really like that quality breakfast foods are in the fully-equipped residences, and we never have to leave the grounds. Peggy and Lee are great hosts!
fantastic location, great hosts. We had the Bungalow which has a great view of the lake. no restaurants without driving for 10-15 mins but good self catering & they provided a lot of basics. Remember you're at 7,000 ft & can be a problem. Drink plenty of water. Would love to go back.
The lake house is beautiful and in a wonderful setting, with terrific views of the mountains across the small lake on the property. We had three adults and two children during our stay, and there was plenty of room. The kitchen is well-appointed and it was easy for us to prepare meals when we wanted. Peggy and Lee were excellent hosts, and were very helpful when we needed advice about outings. The location is a good launching point for visits to several outstanding national parks and other sightseeing locations: Mesa Verde, Monument Valley (2.5 hours away), Arches National Park (just under 3 hours away) and the San Juan scenic byway. We look forward to returning someday!
Our family of four, which includes two teenagers, recently spent two days at this special place nestled in the woods 10 minutes from Mesa Verde National Park. We wish we could have spent more time there enjoying the peaceful surroundings from our comfortable porch, canoeing on the pond, enjoying breathtaking sunsets and the bright star filled night sky. The cabins are creatively decorated reflecting Peggy's artistic talent. Peggy and Lee are friendly, helpful hosts and organic products are provided for breakfast each morning. Our stay at Willowtail Springs has provided a special memory for our entire family and we are looking forward to our return.
Let's just say that this video says it all - the memory my husband & I have to share is beyond my wildest dreams, it's more like a fantasy look for yourself. http://www.paintthedog.com/index.php/sample-videos/wedding Peggy, Lee & Beth did everything to make our experience wonderful - they also recommended the wonder videographer and photographer that captured this for us - we'll have these beautiful memories forever. We do indeed highly recommend the Abode at Willowtail Springs - we plan to celebrate our anniversaries there too!
