With 40 rooms, Balcony House is considered a medium size cliff dwelling. Only 10 sites in the park have more. Evidence of how room and passageway construction in the alcove evolved through time can easily be seen in Balcony House. Today, the tunnel, passageways, and modern 32-foot entrance ladder are what make it the most adventurous cliff dwelling tour in the park. You may enter Balcony House by ranger-guided tour only. Tours are offered from late April to mid October. Purchase tickets for these one-hour tours at the Mesa Verde Visitor and Research Center before driving to the site.
Wear comfy shoes and be prepared for some ladders and ledges that might be tough on anyone who is afraid of heights. Excellent views of the canyon too! Remember that you need to get a ticket in advance to visit.
Amazing to walk through - good thing we now access it via walkways and ladders! Took our 4 year old no problems at all.
