Space 1,337 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Families and groups of friends alike return year after year to this home! It is an amazing piece of Fruita history and it was fully restored for your stay - completed July of 2012. Beautiful wood floors throughout, marble counter tops, comfortable furnishings - no expense was spared here and the owner took his time getting it right! The pictures just cannot do it justice!

Located in a very nice neighborhood of Fruita - you will find three bedrooms and two baths in this home. One master bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and full bath. Two bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen and the other with twin bunk beds. A full size pull out couch in the living room creates more sleeping space when needed. In the evening, you will enjoy the outdoor patio area with a BBQ and large lawn for tossing a ball, frisbee or just hanging out with your crew. Large and mature trees provide full shade during most times of the day. Off street parking is also a nice perk! As always, Fruita CrashPad properties provide secure storage for gear, a washer and dryer and a fully equipped kitchen will ensure you have a great stay!

Downtown is just a quick three block walk away. Visit Aspen Street Coffee in the morning, get a ride in, go rafting and then come back for some music at Cavalcade, grab an amazing craft brew at Copper Club Brewing Company or some pizza at The Hot Tomato! Need some bike maintenance or a place to rent one for a day or two, check out Over the Edge Sports or Colorado Back Country Biker!

About Michelle Melgares

My name is Michelle and I own Fruita CrashPad a vacation rental management company in Fruita, Colorado. I grew up in the area and feel very fortunate to get to call it home. I love cycling and want to share the great things this community has to offer with the world. If you can do it outdoors, you can do it within 45 minutes of Fruita. Skiing and wine country tourism too!

This homes proximity to downtown, the surrounding neighborhood, the beautiful outdoor space and high quality finishes make it a great destination home for families and small to mid size groups alike.

Charming house and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time. Our family stayed here while attending a wedding at Two Rivers Winery. The house was perfect for us to gather and get ready for the wedding. We walked downtown for breakfast and stayed in and barbecued for dinner. We loved Fruita and this rental!

Very clean, nicely remodeled.

  • 4 of 5

Cute, comfortable house in a great location. Lots of great light from all the windows and very nicely remodeled throughout. Exceptionally clean as well and great internet service. Kitchen was lacking a bit: only three coffee mugs, no ice maker or ice cube trays, toaster didn't work, etc. Couldn't find any "guide" on the cable TV system which made it very awkward to operate. Some artwork on the walls would be a nice touch as well.

Cute house, nice getaway

  • 4 of 5

Nice restoration. Master suite a little funky with no real separation between master bedroom and master bath - a true suite! It's located close enough to Main Street to walk for coffee, brew pub & pizza. We had a good time.

Bright, Cozy, Clean and only a few blocks from Hot Tomato!

  • 4 of 5

Our crew was in town for a huge mountain bike race, and this was the perfect place to come home to after a long day of work and play. Beautiful hardwood floors, updated kitchen, clean remolded bathrooms stocked with soft towels. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner and we used the grill outside too. You're only minutes from downtown Fruita and a short drive to the 18 mile mountain bike trails! I would've rated this place 5 stars, however, it was unanimous among the five of us, that both the beds and pillows were uncomfortable. I recommend bringing your own pillow! Other than that, this was an excellent place to stay for a weekend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review Shanelle! We will look in to the bed and pillow comfort, this is the first we have heard of that and want to make sure it is addressed. We hope you will come back soon! Michelle

Our group (3 guys mountain biking for the weekend) really enjoyed the house, it was perfect for us. Great to have shed to store bikes. Walking distance to downtown Fruita. Highly recommend!

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!
