Cozy! by Melissa D 03/27/2021
Immaculately clean. Very cozy and very comfortable. Kitchen stocked with the basics but it’s everything you need. Wonderful location. The yard is all completely fenced in which was such a perk - we have a 2yo & 3yo- and didn’t have to worry at all. A really wonderful, clean, well thought out spot. Highly recommend and would stay again.

Lovely home, great location. We loved being able to use the yard, grill, and fireplace!

Really cute house!
Lovely stay by Bethany R. 02/08/2021
Kristy’s house was very clean with an awesome yard for our dogs. She was incredibly responsive as well. I highly recommend staying here.
Perfect stay by Robert E. 02/04/2021
We operate a charity that supported a food bank in Grand Junction. We drove in from Denver and stayed 3 great nights and everything was perfect. Very quiet but “downtown” Fruita is a walk away. Our dogs loved the yard and all in, a perfect stay.
Girls Trip by Kathleen J. 02/01/2021
Our stay for a quick girls weekend was just perfect! This home was spotless and from the moment you walk in the door you know they take the time to assure the cleanliness and safety of the home. There much attention to detail throughout the home to make our stay a comfortable and carefree stay. Kristy was extremely accessible and accommodating. We had a wonderful relaxing stay and enjoyed all the special touches and treats that Kristy had for us when we arrived . 5 Star Airbnb... We would definitely be back!
Thanks for hosting us by Patrick K. 01/30/2021
Had a great stay! The home was very clean, in great shape and had a wonderful yard. Check-in and responsiveness from our hosts was very quick and easy
January Stay by Dan W. 01/23/2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ladybug. The house was very cozy and immaculately kept. The fenced in yard was great for our dog as we could just let him out the back door. Being just a few blocks away from downtown Fruita was also very convenient. We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Fruita.
Thanks for a great stay! by Katie G. 01/21/2021
Lovely little house with everything you need. Any questions/requests were answered quickly. They went above and beyond to make sure we had whatever we needed during our stay.

Cute house with modern finishes and look!
Perfect Escape ! by Jessica W. 11/16/2020
Clean, easy, and a perfect escape for our family. Dogs loved having a yard to run around in and the fire pit was perfect for the cold evenings.
Fantastic House ! by Jennifer L. 11/05/2020
The location was fantastic, house was very clean and comfortable and our dogs love the yard. We plan to stay here again on our next trip.

New Review by Bridget R. 09/15/2020
Clean comfy space with a great yard for the dogs. Easy to find and get settled. Safe neighborhood. Big stocked kitchen with all you could want
We'll definitely be back!! by Jay B. 09/14/2020
The place was super walkable, the yard was enclosed and great for pets. When we got there the place was very clean and well taken care of. It was great to have a locking shed for our bikes. We'll definitely be back!!
This is the cutest house! by Erica M. 07/21/2020
This is the cutest house! Just like the pictures, and even cleaner than we expected. Our dogs had a great time running in the yard and the house had everything we needed for a great trip. Would definitely stay here again.
Ladybug our home base by Emily S. 07/11/2020
We stayed at the ladybug for a little over a week. It was our first time in the area and we truly enjoyed getting to call the ladybug our home base. The house is clean, comfortable and spacious. We particularly enjoyed access to the grill and yard/outdoor living space. The location was great - a few easy blocks to downtown restaurants and the grocery store. We would definitely stay there again.
Amazing! by Sara 07/01/2020
"This property was amazing! everything we needed and more and pet friendly. My kids loved the yard and I loved all the space we had. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and enjoy meals with my family. The BBQ and patio area were perfect for the nice summer weather we had. The property was clean and very comfortable. We will absolutely be staying here again!"
Awesome stay! by Rikki 06/24/2020
"Loved the ladybug house. Amazing location and we basically lived in the yard all weekend!"
New Review by Duncan 06/02/2020
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ladybug House in Fruita. It certainly is well constructed with great character and all the modern amenities you could expect. Loved the outdoor area too for evening-time grilling and to allow kids and dog plenty of fenced-in space to run around. Very convenient shed to store bikes. Just a short walk away to central-Fruita too, making it easy to head into town for coffee, food, bike shops, etc. All-in-all a great experience and we hope to return one day!"
New Review by Shana 05/26/2020
Loved our stay at The Ladybug House! Took our family and dog with us to Fruita for a long weekend and hit up the trails on our bikes on 18 Road as well as Kokopelli. The Ladybug House was amazing! Great for our family and the dog loved the fenced in garden surrounding it. We spent most time outside in the evening, grilling and playing games but the inside was really well laid out with all the modern amenities you'd wish for, great space and very comfortable, climate-controlled zones. Definitely liked the convenience of the shed outside the house too for storing bikes and equipment and downtown Fruita was just a small walk away, making everything very easy. VisitFruita.com were the perfect property managers and made us feel very welcome at every step of the way. I don't think we've had such a great reception anywhere else we've stayed to be honest! We'd definitely return to this lovely house. It's got such great character and certainly checked all the boxes for my family. Thank you so much!
New Review by Brian L. 02/24/2020
The house is so beautiful. Much better than expected!
Fantastic! by Dannette L. 02/20/2020
The listing is as cute and cozy as the pictures. The house has everything you need and incredibly stylish detail. It was sparkling CLEAN with a great location within walking distance to the downtown full of cute shops breweries grocery store and great places to eat. You never need to leave this adorable house with a beautiful fenced yard and outdoor table for six and a fire pit. We didn't get to use the bicycles since it was too cold but they are adorable. The bedding and beds were very comfortable and we didn't want to leave the comfy couch after a long day of skiing. The layout of the house is great giving lots of privacy to the upstairs master with en-suite bathroom for privacy from the rest of your group if you choose. The thermostats locates within each room allowed for individual room temps which was an added bonus.

This house is fantastic and the entire property perfect.

Long Weekend by Nicole O 11/07/2019
Very clean and comfortable property. It was so easy and a joy to stay.
Very happy with choosing The Ladybug House! by Jason B. 11/05/2019
Our group of 6 loved everything about this place! Visiting niece in Grand Junction and was only a short drive there. House was even better than the photos showed! Well maintained and well stocked house with spacious fenced yard (perfect for dogs), within walking distance to downtown, comfy beds and nice areas to sit outside. Would definitely stay here again next time!
Great Place! by Ken B. 11/01/2019
Perfect place for a quick weekend get away to Fruita! It exceeded our expectations!
We hope to come back! by Shelly H. 10/30/2019
"If you need a beautiful, relaxing, well-stocked, sparkling clean house then this is the place for you! We had 6 people there very comfortably, and it was relaxed, roomy and private. The bedroom upstairs with the king bed is open concept and the only room on the top level. It was the perfect hideaway for some quiet and a little work since there is a nice desk up there. The main level has two bedrooms sharing a good size bathroom. Full size laundry. Huge side yard with table and bbq. Nice quiet neighborhood only a couple of blocks from downtown. Ate at The Hot Tomato—SO GOOD! But if you want to eat in there is a full size dining table, full, well equipped kitchen, sitting area and plenty of room to move (Grandma easily moved around with her walker). Tastefully decorated and thoughtfully set up. Thank you Kristy! We hope to come back!"
Perfect fall getaway by Kristin M. 10/25/2019
The ladybug house is a very cute, clean little house a few blocks from downtown Fruita. It was the perfect size for 2 couples and 2 kids. The kids enjoyed the large yard, we appreciated the locked shed in back for bike storage, and the welcome basket was a nice touch. We were able to walk downtown for dinner, and it's a short drive to multiple good mountain biking trailheads as well as to Colorado National Monument. We would definitely stay here again when we come back for some more epic Fruita mountain biking!
The Ladybug house was the perfect house for us! by Shelly H. 10/20/2019
The Ladybug house was the perfect house for us! Three bedrooms—two on the main level so it was easy for grandma to get around in her walker. The sisters shared the other room (bunk beds). Those two rooms share a bathroom. The upstairs room has king bed with bathroom (open concept), TV and desk and that was so nice for us to have a little escape. Thermostats in each room. Full size kitchen, dining table and small sitting room with a comfy L-shaped couch. Easy access to a lovely fenced in side yard with table and bbq. Very clean with extra supplies available. Appliances are new and nice. Kitchen had dishes and basic cooking needs. We could not have had a better set up. It is two blocks from downtown Fruita and the best restaurant—The Hot Tomato! Easy check in and check out. If we get to come back to Fruita we will definitely stay here again! Thank you!!
New Review by Katja F. 10/14/2019
The ladybug house is very nice, modern, clean house close to downtown ideal for two families with kids. The house has everything you need. Check in and communication with the owners was easy. The neighborhood is very quiet. Can highly recommend this place.
