Flagstone Meadows Ranch Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 6 Mancos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 June 2016

Last weekend my wife and I visited Mancos and Flagstone Meadows Ranch for, regrettably, the eleventh and last time. We couldn't stay at Flagstone because Harris Court had sold it to a couple who promised to keep it as a bed and breakfast-but won't. That's another story.

This post is for all of us who loved Flagstone Meadows. It was a home away from home, a Native American Museum, a place to have conversations with people from all over the world during the great breakfasts Harris prepared and a perfect headquarters for day trips to the Four Corners, sometimes with Harris our expert guide. The leather couches, the fireplace, the deck and the mammoth breakfast table are irreplaceable and, yes, we'll stay out of the kitchen.

We, like so many others, didn't return to Flagstone Meadows because of the lodge or the location. We came because of Harris Court who we loved as a great friend. Harris was not only the perfect host but was a totally decent, honest, kind and caring person; the kind you'd want for a brother though the proximity of my birthday and his would have made that impossible unless one of us was adopted. So we wish Harris the absolute best as he travels to see his family in Arizona, Utah and Montana and we look forward to the time when he'll finally have the opportunity to visit us in Tennessee. I sincerely hope that so many of us to whom he has given so much will return the favor and have him to our homes-but don't book him until he travels to Chattanooga.

Room Tip: Try Blue Lake Ranch in Hesperus.

We had a wonderful experience with innkeeper Harris and the cool lodgers he attracts ! While the B & B is off the main road on a 3 mile dirt/stone road the views from every angle are spectacular - snow covered La Plata mountains on 1 side & Mesa Verde National Park on the other. One of the best reasons to stay here is to get to know Harris. He is Navajo, speaks the language, has a deep passion for his culture, knows everyone - he is a wealth of information' about sites and experiences that aren't in the tour books. We joined his Friends for a horseback ride deep into their ranch where we were treated to a genuine cowboy support and the melodic voice of 'cowgirl Lynn' - what a treat. By the way, the house is spotless, lots of gathering spaces in and out, beds are comfy, everyone has breakfast together - which we love because you interact with other guests, share great finds and faux pas, and makes it fun to have wine with them in the evenings.

As advertised and more. Homemade southwestern breakfast, beautiful home, comfy beds and beautiful vistas. Herris is a kind, hospitable and knowledgeable host. Silent nights where you here only the rustling of aspen leaves and hummingbirds. Close to Mesa Verde.

Found this bed and breakfast online and booked it based on the reviews we saw here on Trip Advisor. Couldn't have been happier with the results. We stayed three nights while visiting Mesa Verde National Park and other ancient puebloan sites in this area.
Our host was interesting and attentive. Our room was clean, comfortable and the feel of the entire house was welcoming. We met most of the other guests and spent July 4th watching the fireworks in the town of Mancos several miles away from the patio while conversing with a couple from Italy and two musician sisters from New York who were experiencing the American west for the first time.
Breakfast was served daily with a "battle of the birds" taking place outside the bay window of the dining room. Wild turkeys and magpies vied for the bird food our host put out each morning, leading to some entertaining skirmishes that surged back and forth as the advantage changed moment to moment. Usually however, the wild turkeys ended up dominating.
There were two or three trails from the house that wandered through the ponderosa,juniper forest. One in particular led down the hill and under a "roosting tree" that was the overnight accommodation for the wild turkey band that frequented our mornings.
Beautiful, relaxing, reviving. My wife and I both loved this place.

Members of my family have been going here for years and have always encouraged me to join them. I had the opportunity for a few days this week and everything I had been told was true. Flagstone Meadows is an elegant B & B nestled in the countryside surrounded by land. Harris is such a wonderful host who makes you part of the family the minute you walk through the door. From the cozy fire in the living room to the gourmet breakfast he serves you each morning makes you feel as if you have known him forever. He gave us lots of tips on places to visit and things to see. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows the area quite well.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet and have private baths.
