Lodging At Mesa Verde National Park

There is just one lodge in the park, Far View Lodge, and it offers 150 rooms in two styles.

Operated for many years by ARAMARK, the lodge offers two classes of rooms, nearly all of which provide outstanding views of distant mesas and canyons. Rooms classified as Standard rent for about $120 per night and are typical motel-type rooms with several bedding options.

More expensive Kiva rooms cost about $30 extra per night and have been upgraded with wood or tile floors, tiled showers, handcrafted furniture, and Southwestern décor. The best features are the large picture windows and private balconies from which to enjoy outstanding views of the spectacular landscape.

Balconies and large windows are a common feature of both room classes. A favorite experience is to relax on the balcony with a morning cup of coffee and take in the scenery.

The lodge is open only during the high season from mid-April into mid-October. For rates and reservations, call 800.449.2288 or visit this site.
