About this listing

Our guest house is small and old, but we like to think that it has a lot of character. The house is located on our property roughly 15 feet from our home, and has a separate lock. It has flaws (cosmetic/appearance/age related) and is priced accordingly.

The space

~300 square feet of simplicity and charm, and yes, it is as old as it looks! This home is very small and has low ceilings. I would recommend contacting me if you're taller than 6 ft.

There are pots, pans, utensils, etc for most basic meals. The fridge and stove (new 5/9/16) are about 2/3 size (of normal) and there is a microwave and coffee pot.

This house is more geared towards spending the evening reading or sitting outside on the hammock as there is not a TV. Our WiFi generally streams pretty well (not so much if we happen to be streaming as well).

We are constantly working on making it better and appreciate feedback!

Guest access

If we are home (and we generally are) the door will be unlocked with the key on the table, and you are free to self check-in. If we are not around we will specify how to check in. Many of our guests arrive at night and we will leave the light on as it's in an odd location. Parking is available on the street or come down the alley and park next to our shed and our cars.

Our yard has chairs, an outdoor barbecue, and hammock, which are generally available for your use (no gluten allowed on the grill though!). Our home has a washer/dryer which we could certainly arrange use of for guests who stay multiple nights.

We cannot guarantee that our yard will be free of dog poop. We do make a strong effort to keep it at a minimum

Interaction with guests

As a host it's difficult to gauge whether guests want to interact or not, so we generally opt towards giving guests privacy unless they choose to initiate interaction, which we are all for.

In a perfect world we would be friends with all of our guests by the time they leave! We are very willing to give opinions on things to do, places to eat, etc! I am a former river guide and like meeting people from different walks of life. She is an elementary school teacher who has a heart of gold.

Please knock on our door, or text/call if you need anything at all and know it is absolutely never a bother.

Other things to note

Fruita is HOT in the summer. If you come this time of year you will want to get an early start, find shade, find water, go to high elevation, or all the above! Inflatable kayaks or paddle boards can be rented from nearby Rimrock Adventures for a fun river activity. The desert sun is brutal by 11 AM and only gets worse until 6 PM.

It is best to visit from September - May. The weather is generally ideal for hiking and mountain biking in the fall and spring. The winter is a total crapshoot - but I have had many sunny days where I get out and bike, hike, or climb.

Everything as advertised, cozy but functional. Kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean and comfy. Location couldn't be better, quiet and very walkable.

Really enjoyed my stay at Chris and Kayla's guest house. It's maybe a 5 min walk to the Hot Tomato and the rest of downtown Fruita which was great. I look forward to a return trip!

Chris and Kayla were wonderful at responding to my last minute request while traveling through Utah after our visit to Arches national park. My husband and I had our pup with us and we couldn't have asked for a better place to crash for the night. They gave us great recommendations for places to catch a bite to eat in Moab and we were in walking distance to the cutest places for breakfast. Overall, perfect for a quick stop if passing through the area.

Excellent place to stay and enjoy the laid back lifestyle of downtown Fruita. Minutes from all trailheads, it was the perfect location for us mountain bikers! Would stay here again.

Chris And Kayla User ProfileChris And Kayla is a superhost.

I am an outdoor enthusiast who has moved around a whole lot in the last several years and have finally settled in to Fruita, Colorado. I have lived and travelled through Western CO and Eastern UT pretty extensively. I used to be a river guide, and enjoy meeting new people and sharing adventure ideas and stories.

My wife, Kayla, and I recently bought an old home that has a small guest house that is adorable! Kayla is an elementary school teacher with a heart of gold. We have three female mutts that are very friendly named Zoey, Phoebe, and Gypsy. We look forward to offering an inexpensive option for people to get to see this beautiful, underrated part of CO.
