Grand Junction vacation rentals

Grand Junction offers adventure aplenty

Eager to rumble on 2 wheels over the rocky slopes of the Colorado mesas? No problem. Want to paddle board your way down the meanders of the Gunnison River? Sure. Pining for the tree-lined pistes of the snowy Powderhorn Resort? It's awaiting. Looking to discover your inner Clint Eastwood at the Colorado National Monument? Yep, it's just a stone's throw. Grand Junction vacation rentals offer access to all the above and more, all in the heart of the Wild West's wine country, where bluffs and tabletop mountains scar the horizon. It's truly beautiful.

Adventure travel at its best in Grand Junction

There's simply no excuse for not getting out and about in Grand Junction. In the warmer months, alpine hiking and canoeing around the rugged Coloradan bluffs takes center stage. In the winter, the snowy pistes of the Grand Mesa take over, offering a spot to carve and 180 between the spruce forests. Throw in adrenaline-pumping whitewater rapids, world-class golfing, quirky paleontology expeditions for the budding dinosaur hunter, and the Colorado Mountain Winefest in September, and you can see how there's rarely a dull moment in these parts.

Grand Junction offers wildernesses and wines

Grand Junction vacation rentals offer a springboard to some of America's most defining wildernesses. A trio of awesome national parks and conservation areas surround the town, from the sweeping fir forests of the Grand Mesa in the east, past the toppling hoodoos of the Dominguez-Escalante to the south, and finally to the carved gorges of the McInnis Canyons in the west. And when you're done with the hiking and biking, be sure to drop by Orchard Mesa or Palisade, where the famous vineyards of Colorado Wine Country beckon.

Something for every season in Grand Junction

The vast wildernesses of western Colorado mean that Grand Junction vacation rentals are an exciting prospect no matter what the time of year. Winter, between December and March, brings snows to the Grand Mesa and the Powderhorn Resort, which is perfect for skiers eager to conquer the tree-lined black runs there. Summer – June, July, August – opens the hiking trails and means the best panoramic drives on the scenic byways. Spring, in May, is when the wild horse reserves reopen, while fall means long, sunny, dry days for canyon walking.

Grand Junction’s surrounded by stunning scenery

Wonky hoodoos and dust-blown canyons scar the landscapes all around Grand Junction. In all, no fewer than 3 national reserves protect the vast wildernesses. There's the iconic Grand Mesa National Forest, where wildflower meadows bloom in spring and great swathes of evergreen woods blanket the valleys. There's the wild Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area, with its ridged canyons and scrub-clad gorges. Then there are the McInnis Canyons – a veritable mecca for rock climbers and geology enthusiasts, known for their sculpted stone arches and caves.
