Over Far View Lodge
In het Mesa Verde National Park vindt u nog overblijfselen van oude indianenwoningen, in uitgesleten rotsspleten in de wanden van een kloof. Een uniek stukje historie in Amerika! Bij de ingang van het park, met een fraai uitzicht over de lager gelegen vallei, bevindt zich de sfeervolle Far View Lodge. Alle eenvoudig ingerichte standard kamers beschikken over een balkon. De lodge heeft verder een stijlvol western-restaurant en iets verderop ligt Far View Terrace Marketplace voor eenvoudige maaltijden.
Deze accommodatie wordt niet aangeboden in het winterseizoen.

The park is wonderful, so worth putting up with the room. Of the four National Park lodges we stayed in this was the only one to let us down. We booked two Deluxe Kiva rooms. Only one (room 111) was known of at reception when we arrived. The rooms were a good size and had amazing distant views over a road. The road noise made it undesirable to sit on our balcony. The layout of the apartment was not good: a large wardrobe was blocked by a bed and not usable, the shower looked a recent addition, but was up against a door such that getting in and out was a problem. The bathroom light switches were strange with the ? extractor? blowing hot smelly air into the room. We were staying at the start of the season so suffered a drive to the one building service breakfast - and later to the one building serving lunch and then back to the lodge as the only place for evening meals (which were excellent). Reception was helpful but understaffed. The 700 years tour, from the lodge was very good. We would recommend a visit of at least two days to the park. Staying outside would involve a lot of driving and losing the amazing in-park atmosphere - so do stay in the lodge despite what I have reported.
"A room with a view"
For me, the name Far View Lodge describes the experience perfectly. It is an evocative, mystical place with views of the Mesa and beyond to the mountains with nothing to impede your vista. Our rooms were clean and nicely maintained. Although the exterior was a bit worn, and the grandchildren would have liked to have a television, this was a place to relax a bit on our balconies after a day of sightseeing at Mesa Verde and think about the distant past and how it can touch us now.
"No view from this room that needs total remodel!"
The room we were given, number 132, has numerous problems: Even though it is advertised as a view room, there is hardly a view from inside the room as the window seal is broken causing the inside of the window to be fogged over. Since it was too cold to sit outside, we never had a view unless you consider looking out a window that looks like someone has thrown up all over it. No view here. The bathroom is so disgusting that we had to dash in and out as fast as possible and close eyes as one was showering. No shower door, only an ugly, dirty shower curtain. Even though we are encouraged to recycle towels to save water, the toilet is an antique, 3.5 gallon, water wasting toilet. The room was dusty, housekeeping does not seem to care that guests like a cleaned room.
Stayed in lodge for the night after touring Mesa Verde. The room was small and bathroom was even smaller. This was the Deluxe King Kiva room that we paid more for. Also the claimed views from this complex of rooms was not as spectacular as the other lower complex. Our room was in the100-120. We were on the first floor so heard every time someone walked across their floor that was above us. Also we could hear the people in the adjoining room. We did have a wild turkey in the lawn outside our room when we got up in the morning. That was a nice surprise.
"Mesa Verde is amazing"
The lodge was very comfortable and well worth considering for its location. While there are lots of less expensive places in the neighboring towns, its wise to consider driving times to and from the park if you plan on visiting for a few days. Being right in the park saves a lot of time as you explore. Plus the food was great and the option of eating in the pub is nice as its less expensive but still excellent food. While Aramark offers its own bus tour of the park remember you can view the ruins on your own by reserving a park service tour. This is cheaper than the Aramark option.
