People who love Colorado visit Grand Junction for a lot of reasons, and if you’re a “people person,” you’ll meet climbers, rafters, people who enjoy the wine country setting, and those who have found a favorite fishing spot. If you time it right, you’ll meet people who come because of the festivals. No matter what reason they made the area their getaway destination, they’ve all found a need for lodging in Grand Junction.
Quiet and Relaxing Lodging in Grand Junction
I’m not big on physical activities, but have found the area a peaceful place to relax and take pictures. The scenery is beautiful. I also enjoy my wine, so Grand Junction is a place I find very welcoming.
Fitting right in with the setting I’m looking for is the Grand Junction Bed and Breakfast. It’s also called the Bookcliffs, so if you hear others mention that, don’t get confused. You’ve got the right place.
The B&B isn’t for everyone. It’s a quiet spot and management works hard to keep it that way. That means restrictions that put some people off, but make it more enjoyable for others. They don’t allow toddlers. I have to admit that I don’t often see that, but they are up front about the policy. Pets aren’t allowed, either.
The hosts, Sam and Judy, are a wonderful couple who seem to go out of their way to make the stay lovely. If you need a ride from the Walker Field airport or AmTrack, they will arrange it. They are also experts on the area, so if you have any questions about Grand Junction, just ask.
When it comes to meals, they serve such a big and delicious breakfast that it’s hard to believe that you’ll need to eat again during the day. But if you do, the kitchen is available for guest use.
The beautiful common room is a comfortable place to gather and talk with the other guests that you have met during your stay.
The rooms at the Grand Junction Bed and Breakfast are absolutely beautiful and comfortable as well. Because of the damage policy they have in place and the other restrictions like no smoking and no candles in the rooms, the wear and tear on the furniture by previous guests is nonexistent.
Those who come back to the Bookcliffs after a day of biking, climbing or a day on the water appreciate the fact that the rooms are all on the first floor. I appreciated not having stairs to climb, even though I didn’t have a wild adventure as an excuse.
