This home exceeded our expectations. All pictures and descriptions were appropriate but they did not fully explain how perfect this home was for group gatherings. The main living space has a spacious kitchen with opening to a casual and to a formal dining space. This also spreads out to a formal living space and to outdoor space. The flow for a large gathering was ideal. We hosted over 30 people for brunch without problems or need for additional tables/seating. There are nice, durable dishes and silverware enough for 20+ people. A collection of spices and basic amenities were also available. Prior guests left ketchup and mustard that we used....we left some pickles. There seems to be a sense of sharing here!
There is ample sleeping space upstairs, 6 double beds and a crib. The basement and TV room provide additional space with couches and a fold out queen size couch with a memory foam mattress topper. There is no limit to guests posted and there is room for airbeds in multiple locations. We slept 10-12 people but could have had more if beds were shared.
We used all of the space available, including the garage with ping pong table and additional games. We didn't use the horse shoe pit or the trampoline but appreciated that they were available. There was also a supply of indoor games and cards available.
Our event was a small destination wedding for a second marriage with blended families. We did not provide space for the wedding or reception but were the meeting place for everything else. We hosted a pre-wedding dinner and brunch and a post wedding barbecue over the 4th of July weekend. Renting this home was a gift to our guests and to the bride and groom, appreciated by all!
This home is perfect for a group gathering, there is ample room for sleeping, playing and socializing. There are a lot of great activities in the area. The location of this house is convenient to grocery and liquor store, close access to the Monument, downtown and more. Grand Junction has grown since our last visit and is a lovely destination.
