One of a kind 4BR 3BA 5,200 sqft home. Stunning views of the CO Ntl Mnt and entire Grand Valley. Our grandpa, a home builder, designed this rustic house as a masterpiece for his family. He wanted it to be part of nature, so he fit it between trees and inside left exposed the massive sandstone slab on which it’s built. Experience nature but less than 15 minutes from downtown. This large house has entertained our family and friends for generations, and we’re thrilled that now you can share it with yours, too.
Our grandpa designed and built this unique home in a way that captures the rugged terrain on which it sits and compliments the stunning natural beauty of the Colorado National Monument that serves as the backdrop. He made it so every room has its own stunning view. Look closely at the photos to see the rock and wood detail throughout. The sandstone slab of the hill on which it’s built actually makes up the entire wall of the downstairs family room and the floor of the room above. Grandpa had artistic vision, creativity, and the craftsmanship to put it all together and he built this house from his heart. (He was still building furniture for us well into his 90s!). It has served as a cherished place for family gatherings, and we invite you to enjoy your vacation the way we have enjoyed this home throughout the generations. Have breakfast in the kitchen or on the upper deck, while enjoying unobstructed views of the Colorado National Monument and the way the morning sun hits the red rocks. Spend evenings by the massive fireplace watching the sun set over the Bookcliffs and the Grand Valley. During the summers you might catch a lightning storm over the grand valley as the thunder echoes off the massive canyon walls behind the house. Or use our BBQ to make your meal on our giant deck while taking in the views. Take leisurely walks through the neighborhood or drive/bike to get to everything that Grand Junction has to offer. (See list below!)
While most of the home furnishings are rustic and cozy in a way that preserves the years of fond memories, we made sure you had enough upgraded guest amenities to make your stay as comfy as can be: hotel-quality linens, plush towels, and plenty of toiletries. You get to enjoy a vacation with maybe the most gorgeous views in the Grand Valley, in a house full of charmingly-old stuff spanning generations, but you still get to sleep as if you were staying in a great hotel. Please note that we water the outdoor plants once a day and also feed the (friendly) outdoor cat.
