Great location perfect for pups! Very clean and accommodating. Even had little snacks & a Christmas tree for us which I really enjoyed. Hiked devils cannon it was stunning! My pup loved it too. Thank you for an amazing stay we will be back on our way through next time!

Kristy’s place was great! Clean, spacious, comfortable bed and amazing views! I’d love to come back again!
"Airbnb Review #423913329018909085 #121001"
We absolutely loved our stay. The proximity to the national monument and grand mesa was perfect. Views on the property to the monument were breathtaking. Clean, spacious, and huge yard for a dog. Comfortable bed and kitchen was fully equipped to feel like home for the week. Internet was fast (70+ mbps), which made working remotely easy. We’d recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area and we’ll definitely come back.
"Would love to return someday"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fruita Carriage House. The views of the Monument were outstanding. The Carriage House was beautiful and comfortable. Everything was just as we wished it to be. We would love to return someday.
"Airbnb Review #407969158804819967 #116615"
Great view, beautiful property, and very clean. We felt at home and enjoyed the outdoor and indoor space. They go above and beyond, including everything you need while traveling. We would definitely book this again. Also, our dog literally did not want to leave!
"Airbnb Review #405795438277188469 #116508"
We loved staying at the carriage house. It was as good as advertised. The yard was excellent for the puppies to run around. We'd stay again!
"Airbnb Review #388357322985701999 #114412"
Great place with nice view, clean, quite area. We had everything in the house we need it. Thank you for providing little snacks. Kristy is a great host and her response was very quick.
I would definitely rent again.

Fruita, CO is truly a hidden gem and a cyclists dream! This property is one of the best Airbnb’s we have ever stayed in. The home was spacious, clean, and the hosts were extremely intentional with the design and amenities.
The property was not only beautifully manucured with a view of the mountains, but was also conveiently located minutes from the grocery store and a short drive to the entrance to the Colorado National Monument.
The hosts were extremely responsive and it was clear they wanted us to have a relaxing, carefree vacation. They even had a gift basket for us upon arrival!
We couldn’t have been happier with our stay! If you are heading to western Colorado, don’t pass this up! And if you aren’t going to western Colorado, you should consider changing your trip to include a visit to Fruita! You won’t regret it.
"This place was amazing!"
This place was amazing! Such a cute, really nice living space, and a huge garage that we used to store and work on our bikes! The kitchen was fully stocked with nice appliances and kitchen stuff. Huge tv, 1.5 bathrooms, comfy bed, washer and dryer. The outside area was adorable too, plenty of room for our dog to run around. Honestly it was a space you could live in comfortably! We loved it!
"Our Scheduled Trip to Fruita"
Carriage House recommended by a friend and lived up to hype.Had an issue with ants-dealt with next AM by Maintenance. Loved the TV access to streaming! Possible improvements-list an emergency 24 hour number, and hot tub on patio
"Airbnb Review #741157815 #101683"
Great amenities, location and very clean and comfortable! The kitchen has everything you need, the couch and living area are super comfy for hanging out and the bedroom and bath are spacious and quite comfortable as well. The patio was great for hanging out and getting some sun and having coffee or dinner, and the location was really ideal for us - wanting to be near town but also with some space. Great mountain biking not far from the house and ample garage storage for our bikes/gear. The owners provide a great array of amenities, snacks and thoughtful items like local trail maps. We really couldn't have asked for a better stay!
Top notch! The house and setting couldn't be better. The place is super-sweet and well appointed. Great service from the property manager when called. Snack box was a real bonus too. Will definitely come again.
"You guys are the best!"
Kristy and Mike are amazing hosts and their staff are top notch. This is our second stay at one of their properties and it was absolutely perfect. Everything about their homes are perfect. The home is sparkling clean. The amenities are 1st class. The bikes are such a cool touch and the views are stunning. I did not know where I wanted to sit while I was working as the views are stunning in all directions. Thank you for making everything so great. It is appreciated!
What a great place. Good location. The house was well equipped and perfect for what we needed.
"Better than expected!"
Kristy’s place was quiet and cozy . Better than I expected !
Nice quiet place to get away. Very cozy
"Thanks for your wonderful hospitality"
Fantastic stay in a beautiful carriage house. Kristy was so responsive and has thought of everything to make the stay comfortable. We’ll be back!
"What a wonderful place!"
Beautiful! Dogs loved it. Everything you need in the kitchen. Highly recommend!!!
"Better than the pictures"
The excellent design of the cottage makes it seem larger than 800 sq feet. Everything was in great shape. There was even a welcome basket. No close neighbors. Overall loved it and would definitely stay again.
Hi Kristy we enjoyed our stay at the carriage house. The only private suggestion would be to upgrade the towels and linens here-they are barely a medium motel quality and had to do laundry every other day to not run out of washcloths. Some big fluffy shower towels would really make this five star in my book. Everything else was great. Thanks and happy new year!
"We look forward to staying with you again!"
Don’t look any further for a place to stay! Kristy has made her place a fantastic private getaway! The location is convenient for Fruita and Grand Junction. It has all the amenities you could ever need and a thoughtful gift basket to top it all! We look forward to staying there again!
"Thanks for a great stay!"
Great place. Probably the most thoughtful and generous place I’ve stayed out thru Airbnb. The grounds are peaceful and the place is great.
"Everything was Fantastic!"
I stayed with my dog for 3 nights and I could not be happier with Kristy's place! The bed and pillows were super comfy. Bathroom was spacious and a pleasure. The water pressure is low but I expect that outside of cities. The kitchen is well kitted out and has plenty of space for probably up to 5-6 people to eat a nice meal together. The TV and couch are HUGE and the place is plenty spacious. Fruit and Grand Junction are close by, too. My dog and I used it as a jumping off point to Moab and Telluride and it was perfect. I'd be back any time I'm in the area!
"We had a great time!"
What a great spot in the world. Our dog was so happy to have space to romp, and we were so happy with the location, outdoor patio, and amenities. It was perfect and we hope to come back!
"November 2020 Stay"
We stayed in the Carriage House for a month with our pup to work remotely and vacation and we absolutely loved it. The house was SPOTLESS and sparkling clean. The rental was close to town and trails for hiking and riding. We can't give a higher recommendation for Visit Fruita rental. Thank you for a wonderful few weeks on the Western Slope!
"Felt like a true get away!"
Quiet location with nice amenities and open yard space with great views! Tucked away from the busy-ness of the Fruita area, but conveniently close enough to all major attractions and stores. Place was spotless and quiet! Will come again!
Perfect for what we needed! The little basket of goodies was a nice touch. Very clean and good location!
The property was excellent for a couple friends to meet and enjoy the riding and hiking in the area. Thanks
This place is great. Perfect for weekend mountain bike trip to Fruita. Plenty of space for the dog to run around. Indoor bike parking and great views. Always a good choice. Thanks!
"Quiet And Well Kept!"
A quiet, well kept property. Easy access to the 18 road, the Monument or Kokopelli. Good stuff.
"Great, quiet place to relax after a long day of mountain biking. My dog loved the property too."
"We loved staying here. Our own private getaway with a fire pit to boot. Great views of sunset. Place is nicer than even photos capture. A quick bike ride to town. We'll be back!"
"This place is fantastic!"
The kitchen had everything we needed and we really appreciated the aluminum foil and parchment paper! Appliances were spotless and all worked well. Plenty of storage space throughout the house, including indoor bike storage space. The bed is comfortable and we slept well. The couch and tv are large and there is a fun hangout space outside. We would love to come back here next time we're in Fruita!
"Room for Grandkids"
Rental was perfect for our visit with our grandkids! They really enjoyed all the run around room they had. Very clean and well stocked. So quiet and close to everything. Thanks for a great time!
My wife, our dog and I had great stay in the Carriage House for 8 days. It is clean, comfortable and well appointed with plenty of room for a dog to run in the large yard. The views are spectacular. Everything works well, and this was an excellent location for us. We were able to get to great dog-friendly hiking in the McInnis Canyons Conservation area a few minutes from the house, visit the Colorado National Monument (of which there are great views from the yard), and drive 90 minutes to Arches National Park just outside of Moab. We highly recommend hiking the 5-mile Flume Trail in McInnis area. Also, do not miss visits to the wineries and fruit stands in Grand Junction and Palisades.
""We have stayed at a couple of their properties and they are sparkling clean and have everything you would need to cook a meal or have a BBQ. Beds are comfortable. They have a great yard for the dog. A perfect and comfortable place to enjoy GJ. We will stay again!""
"June 2020 Stay"
It was great! It's a great location to many national parks. We were able to visit so many places with Fruita being a great central home base.
A nice cottage nestled at the back of a beautifully manicured lawn. The place was very clean and the welcome basket was a nice touch.
"Beautiful place to disconnect and enjoy the environment"
"Our stay was extremely pleasant. If we are ever in town again we would stay again."
"Best Fruita Stay Possible!"
"The Carriage House was amazing. It was super clean, comfortable and beautiful. Nicest dog friendly place we've ever stayed. Property and facilities are top notch. Everything about this place was great. Excellent location, communication and check in were a breeze. Would recommend in a heartbeat. Our dogs had a great time as well frolicking in the huge yard space. It can get pretty hot in Fruita but unit has great air conditioning to chill in. We spent our afternoons at nearby Mack Lake(Highline S.P.). Perfect spot for our dogs to swim and us to enjoy some ice cold beverages. Been to Fruita a few times now, initially for mountain biking but it is a great spot for much more. Do not hesitate to book The Carriage House, bring the pups and have the best Fruita stay possible."
"Excellent location. Beautiful space. Thank you"
"Great location, extra clean, excellent accommodations. Have stayed at the Carriage House on multiple occasions and it does not disappoint."
"Great location and great floorplan. Full kitchen. Beautiful views of Colorado national park from inside. Would stay again."
"We love it here!"
"We love it here! We are sad that we leave tomorrow. The Carriage House is absolutely beautiful! Nicely furnished. Gorgeous views. Absolutely stunning sunset last night. Definitely will come here again. Wonderful relaxing time."
"Super Clean, Zero Complaints!"
This place was really great! Super clean, well-kept house that was perfect for a much needed getaway with our pups. Very close to town without being too close. Relaxing porch to watch the sunrise in the morning and watch the sunset in the evenings! Really a beautiful, relaxed place and we had an amazing time. Zero complaints!
Very pleasant spot with a great south facing patio to enjoy the views of Colorado National Monument.
"The Carriage House exceeded our expectations! Welcoming, clean, with anything you might need during your visit. We were looking for a relaxing getaway for Fall Break and got exactly that. Accommodations were exactly what were promised and we had a great time just spending time with our pups. Close to mountain biking and anything you might need but out of the way so you feel like you can breathe. Just what we needed! We would highly recommend and are already making plans to come back in the spring."
"This place was nicer than the pictures suggest. Great communication, nice welcome basket. Super clean. Great yard for the dog. Kitchen is equipped. Actually had sharp knives! Will definitely be back."
"Incredible space... bright, clean, and modern. If you like cooking when on vacation, this was the best stocked kitchen I've ever had in a vacation rental. The space is bigger and better then the pics (when does that happen!). Ideal spot to explore all things Fruita... also very reasonably priced for the quality, size, and location."
"Fantastic, Five-Star Rental"
We selected this property for a 2-week October stay while we hiked every day around the area. The Carriage House is immaculately clean with contemporary fixtures throughout, is well-furnished and spacious for two people and two dogs, and is wonderfully comfortable. It was a delight to come back to after a long day’s hike, and soak in the late afternoon sun with a beautiful view of Colorado National Monument through the large living room windows or from the patio. And sometimes it hard to leave for our hike in the morning because the house was so peaceful and relaxing, and we could not peel our dogs away from the cozy sun spots they found. The hosts provided a thoughtful welcome basket with tasty and useful goodies. We prepared multiple meals and found all the everyday tools and equipment needed in the well-stocked kitchen, and appreciated the quality outdoor (Weber) natural gas grill. The location is awesome – on the edge of town for the perfect amount of quiet, space, and privacy, yet just few minutes to shops, restaurants, and the grocery store. UPS will also deliver directly to the Carriage House (convenient for our longer stay). We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning!
Perfectly clean. A wonderful place to relax and unwind. Spacious and cozy all at the same time. Delightful welcome basket of goodies. The woodpeckers are hilarious!
We had an amazing time. Dogs loved it, it was like staying in a private dog park! We spent most of our time outside, the views are awesome. We will be back!
"You will love staying here!"
The Carriage house is sparkling clean, comfortable, quiet and has all the modern amenities necessary for your stay! The Carriage house has spectacular views which you can enjoy from the patio for morning coffee, evening wine, or even dinner prepared on the gas grill. We stayed in Grand Junction and toured Palisades and feel that Fruita is a little gem-convenient to Monument and the wineries and Grand Junction restaurants ( we highly recommend Bin707 Food Bar).
"Perfect place to stay"
The house was perfect! It’s larger than picture shows. The lawn was so perfect to lay on with our dogs and read. It truly felt like a home. One of the best parts was that we could store our 4 bikes in the garage along with 2 wetsuits!
This is a wonderful property. We will definitely stay again...
Wonderful property, exactly what we were looking for on our vacation. Great location, nice starting point for all of our activities. Couldn't have asked for a better way to start the family vacation.
So nice to stay here! Super comfy and great views from the back deck
"Relaxing carriage house in a beautiful setting!"
We enjoyed our five night stay at the Carriage House. The house is very clean and comfortable, with all the amenities of home, and the beautiful acreage offers a peaceful and relaxing setting for morning coffee and a glass of wine in the evening. Our Irish Setter had a blast running in the yard and playing in the pond. We loved exploring the quaint town of Fruita and the many beautiful sights of the surrounding area. So much to see and do! Best of all, we encountered NO traffic in the Fruita area - a welcome change to what we are accustomed to living in Houston, Texas. Kristy is a gracious host; always just a call away if needed.
"Lovely country setting with great views. Easy Access and very clean!"
We had a wonderful time at the Carriage House. So peaceful and perfect for a quick getaway from the city. Access was very easy! Thanks for a great weekend!
The house was delightful. Every possible amenity was provided. The yard and setting are lovely also.
"The Carriage House was a great place to stay."
The Carriage House worked out great for us. Good location close to downtown Fruita. Very comfortable one bedroom apartment. Fully set up kitchen so we could prepare meals easily. And our dog loved the huge yard to play in! We would highly recommend Carriage House to stay at in Fruita!
"Excellent place to stay!"
The guest house was in a wonderful location with easy access to hiking and biking. The house was well equipped and very comfortable. Our dogs loved the yard. The owners were easy to communicate with and available (if needed). Thanks for sharing the property with us.
"Hard to beat...."
Wonderful setting, quite, private a great place to relax. Thanks we'll be back
"Fantastic place to stay!"
During our 4 week Colorado trip, we stayed at 4 VRBO/Airbnb homes and this was our favorite! Firstly, everything was like new and so well equipped! 5 acres of grass and ponds that our dog loved! Very peaceful and quiet with gas BBQ. We got some fantastic meat and vegetables in the Fruita area and cooked out daily! Fruita is famous for many things, but we really loved the Palisade peaches which were in season. The bed was very comfy and it was great to have a 1 1/2 bath. All in all, first class! Nice walking trail on the side of the house, plus the property is fenced in. Thank you for letting us enjoy your lovely space!
"spacious one bedroom -great views and close to CO Nat Mon."
Responsive and friendly owners. Great location with great views of Colorado National Monument. Easy to find and had everything we needed.
"Amazing and perfect for 2 active dogs!"
The inside of the property was spotless and so comfortable and clean. The outside was even better and our dogs loved swimming in the pond. Gorgeous grounds and I’d love to stay again!
We took a sister trip to this lovely home and found it to be even better than the ad. It is beautiful, quiet, comfortable, and easily accessible to local attractions. The serenity of the setting was so relaxing. The house is very modern with the amenities. We would only suggest there be more detailed instructions for anything electronic there so that people who are not very technology minded can operate the TV, air conditioning, oven, fans, and DVD player better. We would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
We loved this property. It was in the perfect location for hiking and mountain biking. It had everything we needed to have a relaxing and fun vacation in the Grand Junction valley. My dog loved the amazing yard and walking paths nearby. It was truly one of the best vacation rentals I have ever stayed in...thanks for making our vacation memorable.
The carriage house was perfect for our family and we really enjoyed spending time on the patio and playing soccer on the grass. The interior was super clean and there were some games available to play with the kids. The owners warned us about the pull out couch, so we brought sleeping pads for the kids and it worked out really well. The kitchen was adequately stocked with pots/pans and other paraphernalia, and we cooked most of our meals at the house. Kristy and Mike were great and provided us with some local activities to keep us busy while we were there. We would definitely stay at the Carriage House again!
"Delightful and secluded"
Just a delightful secluded ambiance!! We really enjoyed staying there. I hope to come back again and stay here. It’s really close to the Monument and close to everything we wanted to do in grand junction.
"Bringing in the New Year"
Very quite and relaxing stay. Enjoyed watching the fireworks from the patio. Beautiful accommodations. Loved the stove.
This was a beautiful comfortable place to stay close to the biking trails and Co Natl Monument. Our dogs were very happy in the yard and enjoyed meeting the resident pups! I would recommend this place to anyone staying in fruita or junction area!
A lovely place to stay
"Peaceful and beautiful"
We spent 3 nights at Mike and Kristy's place. Very peaceful with amazing views. Lots of room to spread out. Very comfortable with all the amenities you would need. If you're a Mt biker their house is just a few miles from some of the best trails in the area. Our dog Luna loved sitting out in the manicured grass enjoying the breeze and checking out the neighboring cows.
We really did love our stay, the home was so perfect. Fruita was quiet, just what we needed, took a great hike in the recommended Devil's Canyon and found a few pumpkin patches while venturing out in the area. Definitely would want to come back again. Our dogs love it too, although we didn't let them loose as they aren't fully trained and our older dog is a bit skittish but they had a good time too. Thank you so much.
"We Keep Coming Back"
We have stayed at this property on multiple occasions. We keep coming back for the following reasons: 1) central location 2) very clean and comfortable 3) allows our dog and she loves the large lawn 4) private and on a spacious lot 5) has everything we need and want (fully equipped kitchen, television for sports) You can't go wrong in renting this place or any of the other properties owned and managed by the Drivers!
"Great place to stay"
We enjoyed staying at this carriage house. Our dog was able to go on vacation with us. It was tranquil and the setting lovely. We will be back.
