Sundance Bear Lodge

Pets: your friends and ours

Pets: your
friends and ours


Our dog Pepper is here to greet you.

With prior agreement, your dog is welcome in the Log Cabin. (Sorry, not in the two rooms in the main house - our cat rules.)

Please bring your dog's bed so he/she will be comfortable and have something familiar. You are of course welcome to use the acres for walking, running, and playing with your pet.

Note, with other animals on the property, the situation could be confusing for your dog. Should there be a problem, we may ask you to keep your pet inside or in our outside portable kennel, or on a leash.


Bring your horse(s)! The San Juan Mtns are gorgeous! Ride over creeks and through stands of aspen. Marvel at the views from high passes.

We can provide "lodging" for one or more. Arrangements are flexible and prior agreement at time of reservation is required because we welcome only one trail group at a time. We have 2 large (50 ft. dia.) sand corrals with water and loafing sheds, visible from the main lodge and a short walk from the cabin.

Be sure your horses' shots are current and they are in good health. Please bring your own feed as we do not have any on site. Note:our driveway is up a hill with some relatively tight turns. Please discuss with us any concerns regarding trailer access.


Sunshine: still a kitty, always in trouble.

Almost nobody travels with their cats and we fully understand that some folks do have cat allergies. As such, we've made no arrangements for guest cats - sorry.

Also, be aware that our cat, Sunshine, does live in the main house. And she is a sneaky kitty. We try not to allow it, but she does visit the two lodge guest rooms on occasion. We will keep her out of the guest area if you have concerns (please let us know ahead of your arrival). For those with allergies, the log cabin is totally cat free.

Pets and Mesa Verde

Pets are allowed to be with you in the park with restrictions (similar to all national parks). Click this link for the Mesa Verde pet policies. If you'd like, we can help with arrangements for having Fido "stay home" at Sundance Bear.

Our "Story teller"

Guests wonderfully helped add to one of our Teddy Bears - this now is our version of the native american storyteller.
