Welcome to Starry Nights Ranch

Enjoy our Rustic, Family Style Bed & Breakfast near Mesa Verde National Park

Starry Nights Ranch is located in the beautiful Mancos Valley, where Louis L’Amour was inspired to write his famous western novels; a place where community still exists and adventure still abounds.  Explore the town founded by cattle ranchers whose charges can be seen on its streets today as they move to and from their mountain pastures. As you wander among its quaint shops and historic buildings, watch out for cattle, cowboys, and stagecoaches!

Although Mesa Verde National Park draws visitors from around the world, Mancos has not become overwhelmingly touristy as it has many communities that host national parks.  Instead, it has managed to retain its “Old West” roots while still admirably serving as host to a World Heritage site. 

We invite you to visit this little corner of the West – explore its many intriguing facets while making Starry Nights Ranch your home for now.  You will be captivated not only by the views and sunsets but also by its starry nights’ skies!  Stay a while, come back often, and make this your “home away from home.”
