AAA Editor Notes
Balcony House is in a high alcove in the west wall of Soda Canyon in Mesa Verde National Park and can be reached only by a 32-foot ladder and small 12-foot-long tunnel. Careful attention to detail and the skill necessary to construct a village in this particular alcove make Balcony House a classic example of Pueblo architecture. It can be visited only on ranger-guided trips that fill quickly in summer months.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
