I arrived to retire in Grand Junction from Atlanta, Ga. I taught 32 years at the college prep Lovett School. My subjects were history and religion courses with Middle Est History and Archaeology as my special interests.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Owner chose Grand Junction
This cottage was built in 1941 and remodeled in 2000 . Every day is a wonder to live in this beautiful valley surrounded by The National Monument, The Bookcliffs and the wild horses and The Grand Mesa.

From the moment you are in touch with Jackie, until the time you have to leave, this place will make you feel at home! My stay was, unfortunately, not for pleasure. but Jackie could not have made it more inviting, right down to allowing my daughter to recover from surgery with her Mom. Jackie, thank you for opening up your house and heart to us. I will definitely be back, for much pleasure, real soon. Love Colorado!!!
Thanks Robin for a great review! You left the house so perfect! Please keep in touch!
Lovely immaculate home in great location
I have never rented a vacation home that was as well stocked as this one! The kitchen had every utensil and appliance you could need plus well-supplied cupboards with soups, condiments, spices, oils and more. The beds and living room furniture were comfortable. The wireless connectivity was great — no slow speeds. The location was great as it was quick easy access to main thoroughfares. The chocolate cake awaiting us was a nice surprise. My security deposit was also refunded promptly. Highly recommend this home.
Glenda that was one of the nicest reviews. I have ever received. We fixed the thermostat so now good heat. Please come again.
Charming and comfortable
Sweet Apple Cottage is charming and unique. It suited us well. The home is cozy and larger than you think. It has a large yard and a nice deck. The kitchen is spacious and well-appointed. The location is perfect. We were quite comfortable there.
Thank you Glenda for a very nice review.
Excellent, true home experience
A wonderful surprise, after staying at Airbnb/VRBO properties that are clearly targeting high turnover crowd without personal touch. This home is lived in and has virtually every convenience item and supply you have in your own home. The owner was excellent, responsive, and even sent back to us a scarf my wife forgot at the house. Highly recommended if you are ever in Grand Junction!
Sweet Apple Cottage is a little slice of Heaven!
Our stay in this sweet little cottage exceeded our expectations! We delighted in discovering all the lovely pieces of art and the many small details that make this a “home away from home”! We came to hike at Co Nat’l Monument and the quick drive to CNM was a bonus. Hiked all morning, home for lunch and a little rest and back over to hike until dinner. The home had every amenity one might want, very clean and super comfortable beds. Jackie gifted us with a delicious loaf of chocolate nut bread which we enjoyed with coffee on the deck in the morning ~ and tea on the deck at night. We all commented on what a very quiet neighborhood this is. We will definitely be back when we explore the nearby parks of Moab and Arches. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us, Jackie!
Enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage. Totally comfortable and easy to feel at home in this house. Close to Colorado National Monument and easy driving distance to the Grand Mesa. Jackie is especially good at checking in and making sure everything was good.
Thanks Joanna for such a nice review
