About the property

800 SF Private 1 Story House, 1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-4) on 5 acres

Surrounded by ranch land and cattle fields, the Ranch Guest House is on 5 acres and is very quiet and private. This home was built in 2008 and located at the edge of the City limits of Fruita, Colorado - just 1 mile to the downtown activities, events, grocery store and restaurants.

There is a great back patio with dining table and New BBQ Grill to enjoy with your fantastic views of the Colorado National Monument. There is plenty of parking is just outside the front door for vehicles and trailers (no camping though). There is also an exterior hose for washing your bike.

The interior of the home is 800 square feet and has ground level access into the unit. There is a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and all the dishes, cookware, and dining essentials.

Located 6 miles from epic Fruita mountain biking at North Fruita Desert Area (18 Road) and just 8 miles to Kokopelli Trailheads. 1.5 miles to Fruita Town Center where there is small town shopping, summer concerts, farmers markets, festivals, restaurants, large chain grocery store, and a new recreation center with pool and hot tubs.

This is a dog friendly home! There are other dogs (3 large) on the property and other wildlife (raccoon, coyotes, etc) that pass through at night, so, please keep them safe and nearby as there is not a fence.

Keywords: Fruita Mountain Biking, Colorado National Monument, Western Colorado Scenic Drives.

About Kristy and Mike Driver

We are the owners of Driver Developments, a Real Estate Company. Mike has been in Real Estate and a Managing Broker since 1985. We started managing and caring for rental properties in Summit County, Colorado and learned what travelers, vacationers and families really want and expect from the homes they rent.

We love the Fruita and Mesa County area because of it's year round cycling and outdoor activities. We moved to warm and sunny Fruita Colorado in 2002 for the year round cycling and hiking - and still we don't miss the snow! We have continued with the commitment to managing top notch properties that have the appeal to all travelers to our Fruita hometown.

Kristy and Mike Driver purchased this house in 2008

Why Kristy and Mike Driver chose Northwest

We built the Guest House in 2008 on our property for family and friends. It's so comfortable and quiet that we decided to share our home with other travelers.

We like the location best of all because of the "elbow" room to stretch out and enjoy the views. Even though the house is outside the city limits - it's just 5 minutes to grocery stores and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

The houses are surrounded by green grass all summer and makes the hot summers feel cooler. The extraordinary views of the Colorado National Monument remind us to take in the beauty every day.

Enjoyed the week

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the property. We spent a week enjoying time with our grand kids and new great grand daughter, who live in Grand Junction. This rental allowed us all the convenience of home.

Being on the edge of town, allows for a very peaceful and quiet setting.

We enjoyed the canyon rim drive at the "Colorado National Monument" multiple times as it is so handy and the $15 fee is a great value, good for a week. Amazing beauty, and so accessible.

Beautiful property! Very clean and had most everything we needed. Will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage house was perfect for us! My husband, son, our dog and myself all stayed comfortably for 4 nights. It was very clean and organized, with great info of the town and local activities. Very accommodating, close to downtown Fruita, and also close enough to Grand Junction to enjoy all of its amenities. We will definitely be back!!

Really nice accommodation at a great price

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for the two of us, plus the dog. The carriage house is set far away from the main home on 5 acres, just outside of town, and on the way to the Book Cliffs bike trails. Lots of room for the dog to run around to tire her out, with all kinds of country sights, sounds and smells. Quiet at night with the windows open, except for the crickets. Would recommend this place.

Fruita Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised - very roomy and clean - very dog friendly with tile throughout most of the home. It was very private with a view of many farm animals to amuse yourself. We had no issues and will stay there again when we go back to Fruita to hike. The large HD TV was also very nice this particular weekend as the men and women NCAA final four was going on.

Top Notch!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Carriage House several times - we enjoy the quiet nature of the property, the views, the large lawn to play with the dog, and appreciate how clean and comfortable it always is. It is always easy to store the bikes, and we love the outdoor seating for meals. We don't watch a lot of TV, but like the new set-up (with the TV lower). We feel like it is a home away from home!
