About Willowtail Springs

Willowtail Springs is an Eden in itself and just 10 minutes from the amenities of downtown Mancos, CO. Willowtail Springs is also about 10 minutes from the gates to Mesa Verde National Park. This artistic and landscaped retreat is quiet and secluded and has the best of both worlds with such a convenient locale.

Couples and small groups will adore the private lakefront cabin lodging on 60 beautiful protected acres.


Willowtail Springs caters to artists and writers with packages combining workshops or art studio space with lodging. Tai Chi is another focus at Willowtail Springs where guests can schedule a private Tai Chi workshop session.

Willowtail Springs can accommodate family reunions, artist retreats, and even small weddings. The ambiance on the property is astounding with misty streams and lakes as well as awesome sunrises and sunsets above the Colorado mountain peaks. The grounds are highlighted by gardens and meandering forest trails as well as private lakes, one of which is stocked for catch and release big mouth bass fishing.

The Willowtail Springs property and surrounding lands offer opportunities for mountain biking, hiking or horseback riding as well as casual exploration. Wintertime alpine and cross-country skiing and summertime golfing and whitewater rafting are also offered nearby.

Mesa Verde National Park is just around the corner and as if that was not enough, there is also the Ute Mountain Tribal Park offering pristine petroglyphs and the Anasazi Heritage Center highlighting the history of the Ancestral Puebloans.
