My wife and I traveled here specifically to visit the ‘Wine Country’. We could not have found a better center for doing just that. Along with the Inn there were two other wineries within easy walking distance and several more within easy biking distance (had the weather cooperated!) The vineyards and orchards make for a very pretty and relaxing backdrop for easing out of the high pace of life and just taking it easy. Along with the many wonderful vineyards/wineries (of which there are about 19 in the Grand Junction area, most of them around Palisades) there were a couple of good breweries and a small distillery in the area.
Of the Inn itself, we cannot express how satisfied we were in the experience. The rooms are decently sized and well appointed. Though it is close to I-70 and you can see the trains go by from behind the property there was almost no highway or train noise in the room. The breakfast was very good and filling. While we were there it featured eggs, hash browns, waffles, cereals, and breads as well as fruits. There was also a wine reception every night were you can sample the Inn’s wines and have a complementary glass of your favorite along with cheese and different crackers.
The only negative I would say about the property is it might be somewhat dangerous for unattended kids. We do not have kids, but it struck me that, particularly in the summer, it would be somewhat scary to let kids run free on the property without very close supervision. The property is in the middle of a working vineyard and there is an irrigation canal very near the Inn as well as all the other hazards when thinking about an aquaculture area (chemical spraying, trip hazards, equipment, bees and other stinging insects, etc.)
All in all one of the best mini vacations my wife and I have ever taken. Very high on our list of places to come back to!
