About Debbie Dietmeyer

We have lived in Grand Junction for over 30 years. This is where we have raised our kids and built our life. We love being able to walk downtown in the evenings for dinner and enjoy the charm of Main Street. Folks are friendly and there is so much to do and every season is fun!

Now that our kids are grown and we have grand kids, we have the opportunity to travel and enjoy new places. That is why we are opening our home to you! We hope that you'll enjoy it as much as we do. Once you're here, you won't want to leave.

Debbie Dietmeyer purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Debbie Dietmeyer chose Northwest Colorado

This charming cottage is in the best location and we love this house! We appreciate it even more because we have lived in it and have renovated it with our personalities in mind. This has really been our "Home Sweet Home" and now we get to share it. You can easily walk or ride the bikes to the park, the golf course, and the downtown shops and restaurants. We also love the evenings in our wonderful botanical backyard. This is what life is all about!

What makes this cottage unique

As soon as you walk in, you will feel at home! With lots of personal touches and extras, we have included everything you'll need. We believe that you will love the authentic and charming "cottage vintage" feel. With the original arched entries, the beautiful "barn wood" floors, the large country kitchen and the gorgeous backyard, you can call this your "HOME SWEET HOME" time and time again. ENJOY!! You will be glad you came!

Terrific location and wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this! Just came to Grand Junction for three nights to explore the Monument and this was the perfect place to stay. Right sized for four guests and with so many perfect touches. We want to come back in the summer so that we can experience the garden!

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I came here for a girlie weekend. The cottage was so perfect we didn't want to leave. Wonderfully decorated, back yard was just a dream to sit during the morning with our coffee and at night with the moon. Close to wineries, the cute street in Grand Junction and the Colorado monument. We each had our own room and our own soaking tub. Couldn't ask for more.

Wonderfully cozy and also worked perfectly for a 12-person brunch

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, his daughter and I stayed here when we visited Grand Junction for a wedding. I had an "oh my gosh, I love it!" moment within seconds of walking through the door. The cottage was immediately comfortable, larger than the photos made it appear, incredibly clean and well equipped, and beautiful inside and out. It was convenient to everything we needed, which is always a plus when you don't know where you are. :)

We hosted a day-after the wedding 12-person family reunion here as well.The nicest surprise was that we didn't run out of dinnerware, silverware, glasses, coffee mugs, bowls, pitchers, or - glorious and wonderful to me - bakeware! The kitchen of this cottage is well enough equipped that we lacked for nothing when it came to food prep and serving.

Everyone arriving at the brunch had their own "I love it!" comments and one of the local family members said she'd be recommending the cottage to anyone coming in to visit as a better alternative to a hotel. I'd absolutely recommend it myself, and we'll rent it again our next trip to Grand Junction. It made our hectic, fast-paced trip so much more pleasant and relaxing.

Best Cottage in Grand Junction

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your cottage with us during our stay in Grand Junction. It far exceeded our expectations. Clean, very comfortable, and very well equiped with everything you'd need for a very enjoyable stay. It was the nicest place we have rented on VRBO and could not have asked for anything better. It will definitely be my only place I'll stay when in Grand Junction.

Cottage living at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay we had at the garden cottage! Gorgeous inside and out and sparkly clean. We loved the short walk downtown for shopping and night life and the park was so close! It was just a short drive to amazing hiking and the Colorado National Monument. Debbie gave us all the info we could need about local interests and "must-see's". We can't wait to come back and already booked our next stay here so we don't miss out! We won't stay anywhere else!

A True Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time on our trip to the Western Slope and honestly could not have found a better place to stay! Everything is exactly as pictured (if not better!) and we were so happy with our choice. Such a charming home with all the amenities we needed and in the perfect location. Debbie provided all the information we needed and much more! We will definitely be staying here when we come back and would recommend this place to anyone looking for the perfect home away from home!
