Property Details

Indulge yourself in this lavish retreat! Repent your stress and commune with family & friends! You’ll see church in a whole new light as you lounge on plush, modern furniture beneath its beautiful stained glass windows.

Our Lady of Perpetual Motion is a former Catholic church, established in 1921 and lovingly restored and reimagined by her new owners in 2021. Listed on the Colorado Register of Historic Places as Sacred Heart Church of Fruita, this sandstone pillar of the local community is now a private residence and one of the most unique vacation rentals you'll ever have the chance to experience. Renovated from the tip of the bell tower, to the lofty thirty-foot ceilings of the main level, to the four-bedroom lower level with modern heating, cooling, insulation, window treatments, and two full kitchens, Our Lady answers the question you didn't realize you always wanted to know: what if I could stay in a stone castle with beautiful stained glass windows, except there's no dungeon, and instead there's stuff like hot showers, wifi, and I could
walk two blocks to downtown? Your prayers, dear Pilgrim, have been answered....

This was so much more than we ever imagined and I am so very happy we stayed here. We drove extra miles and my family all agreed it’s the best place ever regardless of the age. Thanks so very much

The Church is amazing! Located so close to a bunch of cute shops and restaurants in downtown Fruita, easy access off of I-70 to get to Grand Junction and Palisades. The church was stocked with high end appliances, nice plateware and silverware, and truly had everything you need for a great time.

We loved staying at the renovated church! It’s intentionally creative and we loved the thoughtful touches with multiple areas to hangout. We had a large group of 5 couples and 2 kids and had plenty of space for everyone as well as a large dining table to fit everyone. The kitchen is setup for large group cooking with utensils, appliances and even large serving bowls. We also appreciated the outdoor locked shed to store our bikes. Overall an amazing place to stay in Fruita.
