Family Vacation Lodging near Dolores, Colorado

Come to Play and you’ll want to Stay!

The Little House at Flying R Ranch provides affordable family lodging close to a variety of recreational adventures in Southwest Colorado. It’s an ideal base camp for planning your family vacation of horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing, river rafting, off-roading or skiing in the Four Corners region.

We’re right on the San Juan Skyway so it’s easy to access our area attractions. Learn about our history and southwestern culture by visiting the Galloping Goose Railroad Museum, the Canyons of the Ancients Visitor Center and Museum, or tour the art galleries in Dolores and Mancos. Spend an evening watching the Native American dances at the Cortez Cultural Center, or tour the world renown ancient archaeological sites at Mesa Verde National Park.

Or… simply kick back and relax! Fill your lungs with clean Colorado air and drop your worries at the front door. The Little House features inspirational views of the red and white streaked sandstone canyon cliffs, green ranch pastures and wooded hillsides. Stroll down to the river to watch the trout feeding on the latest hatch. The stone patio and small covered wood deck are your own private viewing areas as the elk and mule deer come down into the pastures at dusk, just before the setting sun paints the canyon walls in orange and gold each evening.
