  • I think if I did this one first, it would have been my favorite. As is, it's close between this one and balcony house. This one is huge and you get to explore more of it than cliff palace. It has some really cool things you won't find anywhere else, and the echo is amazing. Look for the mud stains on the ceiling, some of the pictographs, and of course the handprint. My guide Kaitlin was superb! Best guide I had on my trip.
  • the biggest and best one best to be at the park around sunset, or at least after noon. most of these caves face west. and I went early morning, totally blinded by the rising sun, and my pictures were not great. great trails all around. but be care full most of them are shut down for the winter, and some renovation work in 2017 I was not bale to walk down to the long house, only seen from across the valley, but wow.
  • Take the time to make the hike with a Ranger. Really interesting
  • It was amazing! I had lots of fun at it. However, it is mostly closed off, which take a lot of fun out of it.
  • Long House is situated on Wetherill Mesa. She can visit that in the company of a ranger who also gives very interesting information. Please note that all reservations for visits are at the Visitor Center on Chapin Mesa. Long House is my favorite at Mesa Verde site. If it is visited at the right time of day (early afternoon), the alcove is illuminated by a beautiful reflected light. The site is quite large is very well preserved.
