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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Fruita, CO, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
