Overview

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!

About Cam Tyler

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.

Cam Tyler purchased this house in 2014

Why Cam Tyler chose Fruita

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.

What makes this house unique

New, comfortable beds. Clean and secure garage for storing and working on biking and rafting gear. Pets welcome.

Great backyard for dogs / perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful for dogs. The insulated garage with a doggie door was perfect for them, and the backyard was huge. Great place to stay for a mountain bike trip, and everything in town is within easy walking distance. Loved the back patio too.

Perfect fit.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience in a VRBO. We were in Fruita to attend a wedding and were traveling with our dogs. The VRBO couldn't have a better place for us to stay. The backyard was a real treat for the dogs to just run and chase. We had a fire in the fire pit on Friday night and sat around and chatted. Thanks to the owner for providing a great place to stay where we could feel comfortable and our dogs could stay with us.

Best back yard in Fruita, yes it is.

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather didn't always cooperate, we spent a rainy Wednesday cooking meals for the rest of the week, including two pies. Comfortable house and convenient location. Would return with no hesitation.

Plenty of room, easy access to downtown and great backyard

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for what we were looking for. Spent a great weekend with the family and the kids (and adults) loved the backyard. Lots of room to run around a play! Thanks so much!
