Property description

This house, just eight miles west of Fruita, is an outdoor recreationalists' heaven! World class mountain biking is seconds away. If you prefer road biking, create endless loops on the quiet rolling farm roads. Hiking- seconds away also. ATV or motorized use - less than 10 minutes from the house. Water sports - less than 10 minutes to Highline Lake State Park. Hunting - yes, that is close too. Whatever you like to do - we got you covered! Make sure you check out our video link in the photos above or visit directly to view it.

Included in this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is a flower, herb and vegetable picking garden for your pleasure. Two outside kennels are provided if your dogs (max of 2 with $50 fee) want to spend the day outside. An outdoor patio seating area with a chiminea makes it comfortable year round. The bed configuration allows for up to six to stay. Four twins which can be converted into two comfortable kings, and one queen bed create endless options for your group.

This home is steeped in history - originally built to house the Unintah Railroad office it was later used as a brothel. The wild west really did exist here! We like to call it the double track as the railroad still operates adjacent from the home. It rarely goes through at night, but during the daylight hours it is neat to watch the train go by from the upstairs window - no doubt you will have many opportunities as the tracks are well used!

LOCATED JUST EIGHT MILES FROM FRUITA, minutes from the Kokopelli Trail system and eight miles from the Rabbit Valley multi use area - Endless outdoor opportunities abound! Come check it out - we know you are going to love it!

Car: Recommended

Fruita is an outdoor enthusiast’s haven! We are a world class destination for mountain biking, road cycling, white water rafting, hiking, dinosaur tourism and of course if you climb... you must climb Independence Rock in our back yard, the Colorado National Monument. Fruita is also home to a brand new Community Center with exercise facilities, basketball courts, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and much more!

Our mild climate makes this a popular destination year round, but we must say that spring and fall are the best times to come see us! Enjoy one of our many festivals, come to listen to music at Country Jam or Rock Jam, or just come to tour the vineyards in nearby Palisade. Whenever you come, we know you are gonna love it!
