Welcome to Head in the Clouds Ranch! This beautiful ranch on 22 acres provides AMAZING views of La Plata Mountains, an incredibly dark sky for stargazing, abundant wildlife and access to thousands of acres of outdoor adventures in the surrounding area.

There are tons of trails around the property for you to explore this land right from your back door. Enjoy the 360 views from the top of the hill of La Plata Mountains, Mesa Verde, and Sleeping Ute, the perfect way to take in the sunset with a cocktail in hand.

Wonder time and great hosts!
Wonderful! Great hosts! Beautiful property! Private with lovely views! We had a great time visiting the owners and enjoying their menagerie of critters. Would stay again for sure and enjoy the surrounding sites which include Mesa Verde.
This was a really nice stopover on my trip from Summit County to Flagstaff. Easy to find and to get in and out of, and a great view of Mesa Verde just a short walk from the campsite. Hosts were very nice and communication was easy. Definitely plan to stay again.
Beautiful, clean, and peaceful!
AMAZING!!! Everything about this ranch was perfect! Liesl and Brian were great, welcoming and very helpful! Like seriously, very helpful! Brian dropped everything that he was doing and helped us fix our car, when we got stranded in the Mesa Verde National Park.
This campsite was just what we needed to recharge and unplug. We will definitely be back ASAP, and I’ve already told all my friends about this beautiful place.
It was such a treat to stay there!
