Palisade, Colorado, is known as the peach and wine capital of the state. Here you can sample some of the freshest produce in Colorado while traveling through beautiful vineyards with the mountains as their backdrop. Add to this the friendliness of a small town community that truly loves its regular visitors and you have the perfect place for a relaxing Colorado travel experience.
While the vineyards and orchards may draw you to Palisade, make sure you spend some time in the welcoming downtown region during your stay. Beautiful shops and tantalizing restaurants await you here, and you will always be welcomed with a wave and a smile.
Choose Lodging That Is as Unique as Palisade
Palisade, unlike other locations in the area, has fewer chain hotels and more unique places to stay in Colorado. As you are booking your lodging, consider some of the less standard versions.
Instead of staying in a stuffy hotel where you get to know no one, imagine staying at a working farm in a rural setting, where you can literally enjoy a peach right off of the tree. The Mariner Family Farm is ready to welcome those on Palisade, Colorado vacations to their location.
At the Mariner Family Farm, you can rent an entire farmhouse to use during your stay. Imagine waking each morning to the sound a tractor in the distance and birds singing right outside your open window.
This setting is ideal for families or groups traveling together, seeing as the home has two large guestrooms and two bathrooms for guests to share, as well as a large kitchen, dining room, living room, and family room.
In the master bedroom, you will enjoy a spacious closet to put all of your things in, as well as the comfort of a private deck entrance. This adds some privacy to your stay, giving you a way to return after a stroll through the wooded lot.
Each room has its own temperature control so you can be as comfortable as possible. The kitchen is fully furnished, so all you need to do is bring your food to cook delicious meals for your family.
The entire house is equipped with Wi-Fi, so you can stay connected during your stay. They have a stereo system with music available, and you can read any of the books in the library while you stay. They even keep houseplants on the property, so it has a homier feel than a typical hotel.
