Last minute alternative plans

Hi all! We just found out our B and B outside of Durango has been evacuated and we need to make alternative plans. Here is our current itinerary.

June 7-boulder

June 8-10. Estes park

June 10-12. Aspen

June 12-14 Ouray

June 14-16 Durango (day trip to Mesa Verde)

June 16-18 Buena Vista.

June 19- fly home

We would still like to visit Mesa Verde if this is possible. Any suggestions on where to go or how to make this change? We love family friendly B and B's ( we have 2 boys ages 12 and 14) or VRBO. If not, then other suggestions?

I will do some research, but our flight leaves in a couple hours so my time is limited. Hoping for some suggestions from you great people! Thanks so much!

In Buena Vista look at Liars Lodge

Be sure to get in some rafting and some time at a hot springs.

I am also a fan of the surf Chateau in BV https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g33…

In Boulder look at the Boulderado, great location https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g33… not a B&B but a historic hotel

If you want to go to mesa verde still look at what might be available in Cortez or maybe Dolores.

See if you can get a room at Far View Lodge in the Park for at least one night. You may be able to find lodging at Cortez, and there are some options at Mancos and Dolores, all of which would be within easy day trip range to visit Mesa Verde. Visiting Mesa Verde from Telluride is possible but a little long for a day trip, IMO. You could see if you could add time at Ouray or Ridgway, but again, it would be a little long for a day trip to Mesa Verde. You could do it if you got a really early start.

At this point, with so many people needing to rebook, I would take just about any lodging you can get at either Far View Lodge, Mancos, Cortez or Dolores. Circle K Guest Ranch has availability, I think.
