Mesa Verde National Park Rooms
Located in the Four Corners region of Colorado, where it meets Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, is Mesa Verde National Park. Mesa Verde is famous for its many cliff dwellings and archaeological sites. The only place to get a room inside this national park is the Far View Lodge. The hotel's location is ideal for a home base while spending the day hiking and exploring the many cliff dwellings. Far View Lodge is located near the Visitor Center, about 15 miles from the park's entrance. While the park is open year-round, accommodations are seasonal. In 2010, the hotel is open from mid-April through mid-October.
