The Far View Lodge is beautiful. The beds were comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Check in was a breeze. WIFI was decent and the bathroom was small. Did I mention the view? Wow! Just beautiful! Wish I was still there.
This is an amazing Lodge on top of the mesa in Mesa Verde National Park. It is dog-friendly. We stayed a room beautifully decorated in a southwestern style. We were up on a hill and had a balcony off the room with nature filled vistas. The building were you check-in is gorgeous! We grabbed a little bite to eat at the restaurant there on the 2nd floor and sat outside on the stone patio. We enjoyed watching the stars and the moon come out in this peaceful setting! There is a very nice gift/souvenir shop in this building and a self-serve place to grab a snack and other food items. It was a wonderful stay and the employees were very nice!
