About this listing

You cannot beat the jaw-dropping beauty of the surroundings on my lane in the historic Vinelands neighborhood of Colorado's Wine Country. Quiet, cozy and offering a special connection with nature and rural life. Feel at home for long stays. Conveniently located near the interstate for short stops. Access to myriad Rocky Mountain adventures (bike, hike, raft, ski, etc!). Wineries are open 365 days a year. And your well behaved fur babies are welcome, too!

The space

Located in the highly sought after Vinelands neighborhood of Palisade, my 2 bedroom house located on a quiet rural lane is surrounded by acres of orchards and vineyards and offers unbeatable views.

Each room offers many windows to bring in the natural beauty and Colorado sunshine. I have a European design sensibility so the house has a combination of rural charm and an influence of my beloved Italy. The primary bedroom has a converted antique iron bed with a new has new comfy queen mattress. The other bedroom, which is set up for an office, has a sofa that converts to a full size bed. The day bed in the living room can also be made into a small twin.

The large, fully stocked kitchen is a cooks delight with lot of prep space and storage for you. Dining options include the bar-top table and chairs (plus 2 stools if you need extra seating) or when weather allows dine al fresco on either the patio with a glass top and 4 chairs or move the wooden picnic table, which can seat 6, to a location on the property to enjoy the best views. I also have grill on the back patio. The weather usually allows year round barbecue.

The bathroom offers a full tub and great water pressure. There are towels and toiletries in the bathroom along with space for you to store your personal items.

The bedroom and the office each have closest with shelves and hangers. The bedroom also has a dresser available to you.

Laundry room with washer, dryer and an iron and ironing board.

The property is just over an acre and is crossed by a stream, which feeds a healthy riparian area offering lots of cooling shade and a place to soak your feet. This is a rural setting, not manicured. My yard is partially landscaped and fenced, but the rest of the property is in its natural state.

Are you a dog lover like me? Your well-loved (in other words, well behaved) dog is welcome. And I don't charge pesky-pet fees! The yard is fenced--front and back--and there is a doggie door in the laundry room. I don't charge pet fees since I travel with dogs all over the country and know the hassle. This is really a doggies dream property, which was my primary reason for buying it for my beloved Madeleine. Though, if you're traveling with more than one dog, please let me know the situation first. A group of people with a group of dogs might call for a different agreement for this cozy house.

Guest access

Guest access includes the entire house and surrounding yard and field (but not the shed or garage).

Interaction with guests

I won't be around for the visit, but am available by phone or email. You'll have the place to yourself! I have family in the area should you need help in person.

Other things to note

I try to accommodate as long a stay as possible. I'm still figuring out the new monthly price settings within the program so we might have to discuss the rate that comes up when you request to book. Check-in and Check-out are determined based upon each booking--basically based upon other bookings and the timing to get the place cleaned up. I'll let you know when I share all the house info. after you've booked.

Since you'll have the place to yourself, I want you to feel at home, but I appreciate you tidying up after yourself--especially in the kitchen and bathroom. If you have your dog with you, a bark or two is ok, but you might get push back from the neighbors if there is barking for more than 5 minutes. Golden Rule is the best--treat the home as you'd want yours treated. Feel welcomed and relaxed, but respect my privacy, too. Thanks!

Great location for spending time in Palisade and close to Grand Junction as well. Beautiful scenery and perfect place for a girls weekend wine tasting!

This was the perfect spot for my husband and I! We were able to bring our dog and enjoy the serenity Marla's cottage and its location provides. At the same time, it is convenient to access the river, Palisade Rim Trail, local restaurants and wineries. I would venture to say this is the best value in town!!

Response from Marla:
Hooray! So glad you and your dog enjoyed. It's certainly a little dog heaven. I'm glad you were able to enjoy all the local amenities. We look forward to hosting you again!

Wonderful place to stay just off the highway. Quiet and peaceful yet close to town. I highly recommend waking up early for the sunrise, it's well worth the view.

We had a great time in Palisade, but I wouldn't stay at this Airbnb again. It could use a good cleaning and some new furniture. There was no where comfortable to sit, no clean blankets for the bed, and there were bugs/spiders all over the house.

Response from Marla:
I'm sorry to hear this quite rare review. Thankfully, my other guests have loved and enjoyed the Charming Cottage. I did see when I finally got to the house that the maid hadn't put the clean duvet on the comforter so she made the bed with just the empty duvet. Sorry about that. But there were many clean blankets in the closet. I wish you'd mentioned this during my prompt replies to our other communication during your stay so that I could've helped solve some of this for your visit. This is a rural property, as is clearly explained in the listing, so to be quite clear that means there could be critters and spiders around--especially during a season change. I do have a maid doing turn overs and she might need to take more time on the linens. I'm sorry you felt there was no comfortable place to sit. There are 2 sofas and 2 arm chairs, all of which is clearly pictured in the listing. This is my home and it reflects my value of aesthetics and elegance. Mine is not a 'lazy boy home'. There is a vintage day bed/sofa that is comfortable and big cozy reading chair. The Charming Cottage is furnished creatively and comfortably for those of us who enjoy a quiet, aesthetically pleasing, rural refuge. I'm grateful for the many other wonderful guests who appreciate this lovely cottage, great price and it's amazing setting. In fact, I've had 4 guests ask to buy the house.

I had a great stay at this cozy cottage. The location worked well for attending the wine festival. The host sent clear instructions and the place had everything we needed.

I'm not only an Airbnb Host, but a regular Airbnb Guest. I'm living up to the nomadic nature of my family with a deep love for travel and adventure. Palisade was a great home base and I'm excited to share my cottage and all that it has to offer. I am an art historian working in galleries, museums and now film production. I'm an animal lover and was a very dedicated pet parent to the best dog ever--my house is still filled with paintings I've done and photos I've taken of her.

The only limitations we have are those we cling to!
