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!
Michelle Melgares purchased this studio in 2001
This is by far on of my favorite properties. When you are here, you really feel like you are away from it all but really you are close to anything that you would need. Most importantly, it is on the route to our famous 18 Road mountain bike trails.
Fruita is in the high desert and this property is shaded with mature trees, it really is an oasis in the middle of the desert!
We had a great time at the bunkhouse. I’d like to thank you and the owners for an enjoyable trip. We all had a blast and hope to return!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bunkhouse. The property is located in a rural part of Fruita, and we appreciated being in a beautiful, quiet setting while still in close proximity to town and many of the biking trails in the area. The owners are very lovely hosts, and it was a pleasure to meet them. We felt very welcome! We would love to return and stay here again.
We stayed at The Bunkhouse this spring for a dudes bike trip. This was the perfect place to stay. Comfortable lodging, close to trails & town. Great spot to grill, relax under the trees by the pond, or talk with friends round the fire. Plenty of bike wash & storage locations on property. Michelle was a great facilitator & the on-property hosts were amazing.
The Fruita bunkhouse is a tastefully re-done loft. It's in a great location for both hitting the mountain bike trails up 18 road, and a quick bike/drive into Fruita. There were 4 of us that stayed comfortably and enjoyed some awesome mountain biking.
However, a couple points from our trip:
-Great location, nicely redone loft. Excellent shower.
-We didn't expect the homeowners to live 5 feet away from the bunkhouse. This wasn't an issue (very, very nice couple, we had a great time with them and they were very accommodating and friendly), but something to note.
-The homeowners didn't know we were coming. We showed up and they were shocked that we were there, as they weren't expecting anyone for a few more days, which made for an uncomfortable initial greeting.
-We didn't have garage access. This was a selling point for us for bike maintenance and secure bike storage, but we ended up locking bikes outside.
-The bunkhouse hadn't been cleaned from the previous renters. Not a big deal, we went into town for a few hours and came back and it was ready.
-There is no stove, and the fridge is extremely small for 4 guys. However the BBQ and hotplate worked well.
-Mattresses could definitely use an upgrade.
Overall, we had a fun stay!
One thing that I found irritating with this property which I had not experienced with any other VRBO property, is that I have been asked to write a review on it 6 or 7 times since we checked out less then 2 weeks ago. I finally broke down and wrote one.
What an amazing place and hosts! A great location for kids (and adults alike) to explore. Feels like you are out in the country but never too far away from town with a grocery store and great places to eat. We had a fantastic time on our trip, much thanks to Jim and Winnie and their beautiful home!
We can't say enough about the Bunkhouse and the family that runs it. Absolutely beautiful property in a perfect location - close to town and close to 18 Road Mountain Bike Trails. The entire place was extremely clean and comfortable. Great spot for a family or a small group of friends exploring the amazing mountain bike trails in the Fruita area. They are working on a special outdoor hangout spot right behind the Bunkhouse that is going to take this place to the next level. Next time we come to ride in Fruita, I know where I'm staying....
We had a wonderful stay at the Bunkhouse. Our kids loved it and can't stop talking about it. Thank you!
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!
