Fantastic Lodge !!!!
This lodge is INSIDE Mesa Verde Park ! How neat is that !?! Rustic, and full of charm, and a reasonable price too !? I would suggest spending a few extra dollars for the deluxe rooms. The views out of these rooms are fantastic !

I think is cool to have a hotel in the middle of a Nation Forest and after a long and tiring ride it was nice to find this place . Not much going on in there but the bar and restaurant was nice, we end up drinking and dinning at the bar. Room was little weird, particularly the bathroom was kind of small and tight. Beds were confortable and the view in the morning was serene and nice.

Far View Lodge
The perfect place to stay while visiting Mesa Verde National Park. Going to Mesa Verde it is about 21 miles in to see the Museum and famous Pueblo Ruins. The Lodge is 15 miles in so it is the perfect place to stay. It would have been nice to have a full breakfast included. It was not so we had to go to the restaurant Far View Terrace which was not that good and a little inconvenient as we had to drive there. For dinner we could eat at the lodge formally in the dining room or on the patio outside or inside at the lounge.

Location, Location, Location
The Far View Lodge consist of family-style apartments located inside the park. The rooms are clean, modern, and have full amenities. Each apartment has a small balcony from which to view the magnificent scenery of the surrounding region. Convenience is key. Located on top of the mesa, the rooms offer easy access to the many cultural sites of Mesa Verde. It much beats having to drive up and down the harrowing park road to the plateau each day.

Disappointing stay in National Park
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Far View Lodge. Unlike many other lodges in National parks, these accommodations like the character and grandeur of other lodges. The rooms are clean and spartan with very thin walls. Unfortunately, we could hear the conversations of our neighbor.
A word of caution: there is limited restaurant facilities and reservations should be made before arrival to ensure a space.
If I return to visit Mesa Verde National Park, I would stay in Durango, where there are many interesting hotels and restaurants.
