Stare at the Stars from Far View LodgeOne of the questions I’m most often asked about my job is “where should I stay…” and I often reply with a “as close to the action as you can get.” Well, you can’t get much closer to the Mesa Verde experience than the Far View Lodge, a stay arranged by our Go Ahead tour. Rustic, neo-retro rooms overlooking canyons, valleys and peaks set the stage for a day of exploring what is truly one of America’s most spectacular – and spectacularly underrated – national parks. Tucked deep into the park itself, Far View is only 3 miles from Cliff Palace and 2 miles from the Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum. It’s also awfully close to the stars, in case you were wondering.
