About Rob and Krista Bonino
We are both retired from the US Army and recent residents to the area. This area offers dozens of chances to enjoy the outdoors and explore new and different sights. We moved from western Kentucky to escape the heat and oppressively high humidity. We found that climate here, in addition to the climate this area has an excellent school system and a safe and stable community where kids can walk or ride bikes nearly any place and feel safe.
Rob and Krista Bonino purchased this Guest House in 2016
Why Rob and Krista Bonino chose Fruita
Quiet, serene and off the beaten path. Full of amenities and DOG friendly. Our property is gated and safe for family pets.
What makes this Guest House unique
Close to so many outdoor activities and opportunities you may never see or experience all the trails and venues in and around Fruita. The views from nearly every spot on the property are unrivaled, from the Colorado National Monument to the west to the Bookcliffs to the east the North Fruita desert and mountains to the much to see and do! The ranch house sits nearly centered on the 100+ acre property and is quiet at night and dark enough for some excellent star gazing.

Beautiful Casita with wonderful views!!
We had such a lovely relaxing time in Fruita. The nature is splendid and the casita is a real treat.
Thanks so much Tom, Suzie and Promise. Who really enjoyed having you stay with us. Olive liked having a playmate for a few days. Please consider Bookcliff Ranch Casita if you happen to come this way again!
A beautiful place to stay. It was quite and relaxing and had everything we needed. The Boninos are wonderful people!
Beautiful, peaceful casita!
We stayed one night at the casita and wish we could have rearranged our travel plans to have stayed longer. The casita itself is so comfortable and welcoming and has everything you need. The property and the views are absolutely gorgeous! Krista and Rob are wonderful hosts, made us feel very welcome, and were great about communicating with us about our stay. We highly recommend a stay here if you have the opportunity!
Thank you. Everything was beautiful. Breck and Charlie
Bookcliff Ranch Casita is located just 8 miles from the North Fruita Trailhead. North Fruita offers several miles of expert and novice level mountain bike trails. Kokopelli trailhead is 10 miles away and is yet another example of excellent biking. The massive and awe inspiring Colorado National Monument is a short 10 miles away and is a must see. We have stunning views of the monument from the Casita. Skiing at the family friendly Powderhorn resort is less than an hours drive away. There are several ski rental shops in and around Fruita as well. Within 20 minutes drive are nearly a dozen award winning wineries that offer tasting opportunities. At least two local wine festivals are held anually. Numerous bike races (both mountain bike and road bike) are held all times of the year. Many micro breweries and orchards are just a short drive away.
I addition to the local amenities offered, Bookcliff Ranch Casita is close enough to enjoy all these events and some off the beaten path hiking, biking and walking.
