I arrived to retire in Grand Junction from Atlanta, Ga. I taught 32 years at the college prep Lovett School. My subjects were history and religion courses with Middle Est History and Archaeology as my special interests.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2000

A grand place in Grand Junction
Sweet Apple sounded like it was what we were looking for . . . and it was. For being in town, which we usually like to avoid, it was very private with a nice yard surrounded by trees – plus the patio and deck is a very enjoyable space.
Inside, it just seemed so lived in – both in terms of decorations as well as supplies and even food to use, right down to a dab of super glue when we needed it.
Our GPS took us around the block for some reason. It’s worth getting a grasp of the neighborhood – coming and going from Monument Road is quite a bit easier than South Broadway.
We used Sweet Apple as home base for visits to Colorado National Monument (just a couple miles away) as well as Moab, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, a rafting trip in Fruita, and getting some fresh Palisade peaches. Since a CNM pass is good for 7 days and it’s open 24 hours, we recommend getting there very early one day to catch the sunrise.
The only reason we wouldn’t come back to Sweet Apple is because we hardly ever do return trips; we just like discovering new places. If we were to repeat, this would be on the list to consider. Thanks.
Thanks so much for a nice review. Keep on your journey to great places.
Home was beautiful and cozy! We had some special circumstances come up and Jackie was great about working around them with us! We will definitely be back! Lovely stay!
Thank you April for such a nice review. Please return when you can.
A jewel outside of grand junction!
Such a homey place! We felt so comfortable in Jackie’s wonderful place!
Thanks Sue for your review. I so enjoyed our phone conversation and will contact you when I visit Longmont. I may have the house rented by a family member for Nov.-Jan. And I will need a place to escape to. Your place sound great.
I meant to write Loveland not Longmont
Great Location and lots of room!
This cottage is in a great location, just minutes to any place in Grand Junction. It had everything we needed. We loved it and would stay again!
The cottage was a perfect place for our weekend stay in Grand Junction. Warm and inviting, with all the comforts of home! Private and quiet. And Jackie was so kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here if we come back again.
Thank you for such. Nice review. I mailed your cards this morning. Don’ worry about postage.

Jackie was a wonderful host and I loved staying in her house
Thank you Karen for nice review. I forgot to mention that there is another hospital that uses visiting nurses. That is Family Health West in Fruita CO ten miles from Grand Junction
