About the Property

2 bedroom house with large yard and secure garage next to downtown Fruita

Cozy, convenient lodging in a very safe neighborhood (adjacent to the Fruita Middle School). Back yard is fully enclosed with a privacy fence and gated.

We bought the house in 2014 and have completed setting it up for our own use for bike/ski trips to the areas around Fruita. The beds are two very comfortable queens with memory foam mattress - great night sleep, and a double-bed sized outside sleeping tent platform, nice in the summer. There is a large screen TV in the living room. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, and full-size fridge/stove in the kitchen with all the other dishes, pots and pans and utensils needed to prepare great meals on your own. The outdoor patio has a new 5-burner grill, a bar, mixer, and is a comfy hangout. New bathroom, carpet, closets, tile entry, and other improvements have been finished as well.

Dogs are welcome. The garage is a clean, secure space with a dog door - insulated enough to be a good place for dogs to relax while you are out on a trail. The back yard is quite large and pleasant.

Fruita now has a number of very good, nearby restaurants. We keep a jug of Vermont maple syrup to use at Camilla's with breakfast. The Hot Tomato pizza/brewpub, Tap Room, Suds, the Feedlot, and other good eateries are a short walk away.

Given the cozy size of this home, two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and one, good-sized bath with good water pressure and great shower, the new Rinnai heater warms it up in about five minutes flat. During hotter weather, the evaporative cooler does the same. Both are simple to turn on/off.

Off-street parking is provided.

Have a great time!

Cam and Jess

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Jessica and Cam live on a farm north of Boulder, Colorado, and come to Fruita as often as possible to paddleboard, ride mountain bikes, enjoy some great craft beer, stromboli, and Mexican food. Cam has been roaming about the Moab area, running, hiking, biking since 1980, and Fruita feels much like Moab did back then, only with better trails and a significantly shorter drive. We love the small town feel, the ability to park right in front of whatever restaurant you want to go to and just walk in. The globe willows, Colorado National Monument, Grand Mesa, and the rivers are all easily accessible, and enormous. We will be coming to Fruita for a long time.

Why the Owner Chose Fruita, CO, USA:
Within a very short walk of down town, right next to the Elementary School, on a quiet side street. The back yard is huge and we plan on steadily improving the 'hang out' factor.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
New, comfortable beds. Clean and secure garage for storing and working on biking and rafting gear. Pets welcome.
