Rooms were clean and comfortable, but you could hear everything (cough, cough, snore, snore, sneeze, sneeze, talk, talk, flush, flush) in the adjacent rooms. Fortunately, the rooms do not have televisions or radios and our neighbors did not stay up all night. No other options unless you camp or drive a heck of a long way every day.

Our room was in the front on the end of the unit so we got very little light pollution from the other rooms. I was able to see and photograph (picture coming later) a lot of stars! It does get windy and the rooms get kind of loud from the wind noise, but I still got a good night's sleep....

This was a rustic lodge at the top of Mesa Verde National Park. Had a beautiful scenic view of the mountains. Sunrise and sunset were beautiful. Lodge was ready to close for the season, but accommodations were great. Breakfast and dinner were great,

So beautiful: the view and the accommodations. The unit we stayed in was freshly remodeled: clean, solid and very nicely done. There is shampoo, lotion, conditioner and soap at the sink and in the shower in nice pump bottles that stay clean and avoid the mess from a bar of soap and the waste associated with individual mini bottles. The...

Good to stay inside the park. Short walk to the bus tour. Recommended if you have the time. Convenient drive to Long House Tour. The view was great. Deer grazing in the morning. Rooms are not large or well appointed. The private balcony is a plus.

With a group of 35, we overnighted at the Far View Lodge. The view is just breathtaking from your front balcony. We sat on the balcony and watched the stars at night. The only thing that made us come inside was the fact that we had to be up so early the next morning. Our evening meal was not so...

This lodge is typical National Park lodging, which means no frills, so set your expectations accordingly. The Lodge is set up on a bluff that can see out for miles in every direction - really a stunning vista. Our room, like all of them, had a small back porch just big enough for a couple of chairs. It was really...

This is an older park property managed by Aramark. The great thing about staying at Far View Lodge is you are in the park and eliminate the long drive to and from the park to a hotel in Cortez each day. The views are great and the night sky is beautiful because you are so removed from any city light...

This lodge is very spread out at a very high point in Mesa Verde. Our room was some distance from the main block and although had amazing views into the distance it overlooked the car park of the adjacent property. Therefore we felt the overall ambience could have been better but we enjoyed our deck and the coyotes at night!...

Visited Far View Lodge in early October and stayed 2 nights in a Kiva Deluxe room. Our room was in 10-unit building next to lodge where the office, Metate restaurant, lounge, and store is located so it had very convenient access. Room was recently renovated, clean and comfortable with modern sink and shower fixtures. Room had a refrigerator and telephone,...
