With the beautiful sites, the calming sounds of nature, and the privacy of Willowtail Springs, you and your significant other will truly enjoy your quiet, romantic getaway.


Willowtail Springs is about 5 miles outside of Mancos, CO. This allows for the ultimate privacy. It is away from the highway, surrounded by trees, and almost hidden from everyone; yet, it is still close enough to Mancos if you decide to venture outside of Willowtail Springs. The individual cabins available are all different. Choose from the different homey and comfortable ones we have:

The cabins vary in size but they can all be used for just two people. The Bungalow is a private, romantic lakeside cabin. It overlooks the mountains and provides beautiful views of the lake during all times of the day. The porch provides wonderful views to the gardens, the kitchen is fully equipped, an outdoor grill and an indoor fireplace provide the perfect setting for a wonderful and cozy dinner. There are also natural bath and spa products available to help you both relax.

The charming and secluded Garden Cottage is nestled by itself among the gardens and wildlife. You can also view the lake and the La Plata mountains from the deck. Snuggle up together in front of the fireplace or out on the deck and take in the views and sounds. Take advantage of the natural bath and spa products so you can be as relaxed as possible.

The Lake House is a large and charming log cabin, available for a larger family but, if you and your significant other would like the space, it is available to you. A quick walk to the lake, enjoy the birds and fish you may see there, overlook the mountains, or sit on the deck together and enjoy all the various bird species you may encounter. Enjoy the natural bath/spa products and/or the library in this cabin.
